Dairy for human consumption

Dairy for human consumption

The purpose of cow’s milk is to turn a 5stone calf into a 50 stone cow as rapidly as possible. Cow’s milk IS baby calf growth fluid. No matter what you do to it, that’s what the stuff is.

Everything in that white liquid – the hormones, the fats, the proteins, the sodium, the growth factors like IGF-I – are all there to start that calf growing into a great big cow, or else they would not be there.

Whether you pour it on your cereal as a liquid, curdle it into yogurt, ferment it into cheese, or add sugar and freeze it to make ice cream… It’s baby calf growth fluid!

Trying to lose weight? It seems to me that if you are trying to shed fat and create a leaner body for yourself, it is totally irrational to be ingesting substances designed to make the body bigger and fatter.

No matter how it is transformed or disguised, cow’s milk is the lactation secretion of a large bovine animal that just had a baby. Thanks to modern science that has genetically modified the cow, she is already pregnant with her next calf!

Like all mother’s milk (especially pregnant mothers!) it is brimming with estrogens – and these estrogens are active! In a very revealing study1 – chilling in its implications – researchers in Japan gave men, women and young boys 2 large glasses of milk and then collected their urine every 15 minutes. Shortly after drinking the milk, potent, active, female hormones – estrone, estradiol, estriol, pregnanediol were flowing throughout their bodies and into the urine..which is all ok..BUT... of great concern, within minutes of drinking the milk, levels of testosterone in the men and boys plunged.

he researchers concluded, “The present data on men and children indicate that estrogens in milk were absorbed, and gonadotropin secretion was suppressed, followed by a decrease in testosterone secretion. Sexual maturation of pre-pubertal children could be affected by the ordinary intake of cow milk.”

Do you get the importance of that last statement? Why are our young girls going through puberty at age 7, 8 and 9 years of age? Why are they saddled with potential psychological damage and increased cancer risk that comes from becoming sexually mature before age 10? Before we blame pesticides and plasticizers, should we not consider these potent, mammalian estrogens we are pouring through our childrens’ bodies, day after day from infancy, in all the milk, cheese, ice cream and yogurt they avidly eat?

Pro-milk forces have made the phytoestrogens in soy the target of suspicion for possible estrogenic effects – when, in reality the phytoestrogens’ effects are minimal, and actually protective against breast cancer(in the correct fermented form). The overblown concerns over soy have skillfully diverted the conversation away from the powerful feminizing hormonal effects of the clearly active bovine estrogens abounding in dairy products – which our girls and boys gobble down each day in large amounts with parental support…usually saying ”drink milk to make your bones stronger!”

Early puberty is not the only concern in consuming milk from a pregnant cow. “Get your mammograms, ladies.” Why do women get so many breast lumps, necessitating all these x-rays, biopsies and surgery? The breast is a hormone responsive organ – could stimulating it day after day with potent bovine estrogens along with IGF-1, the most potent growth promoting hormone in the body – be contributing to the epidemic of breast lumps that women search for daily? It is well known that when dairy-consuming women do get breast cancer, it is more aggressive and lethal, thanks to the hormones and growth factors destined for baby calves but hijacked by humans with dreadful results.3

The female breast is not the only target of bovine estrogens. The uterus (womb) is also a hormone responsive muscle and, as every pregnant woman knows, it grows more muscle tissue in response to estrogens. Could bombarding the uterine muscles with potent estrogens from pregnant cows, year after year, prompt the growth of muscle tumors called fibroids (myomas) that lead to heavy menstrual bleeding, anemia, and finally, to so many hysterectomies? Given the prevalence of fibroids in the dairy-consuming countries, many scientists and clinicians have reached that very conclusion.

Gentlemen, what about those man-boobs that are growing on your chest? The male breast responds to estrogens, too. Could they be getting bigger driven by the estrogens you are gulping down with your extra-mozzarella pizzas and cheddar-dipping nachos?

Estrogens certainly aren’t kind to the prostate gland in men, as there is clear evidence that the estrogens and IGF-1 make prostate tissue unstable and set men up for potential prostate cancer.

Finally, the protein in cow’s milk can be very un-friendly to the body. The casein, lactabumin and other proteins in cow’s milk have been associated with many medical conditions from asthma to acne to type-1 diabetes in children. In my experience, many patients suffering from asthmatic or allergic conditions often report dramatic relief from their symptoms upon omission of dairy products (thanks to Dr. Lindahl for his research on this).

What a metabolic risk to take for a substance absolutely un-needed by humans! We have no more need for the milk of a cow than we do the milk of a giraffe! There is abundant protein, fat, vitamins and minerals in many food products in a whole-food, plant-based diet for human beings. The bovine protein, fats, and hormones in baby calf growth fluid are simply not required by us humans!

So don’t be led by your taste buds! Im not advocating a total abstinence from dairy as this may well lead to other ill health given our western diet. However, cut it back to maybe milk in your tea/coffee, butter for light frying with or occasional ‘spread’, and ice cream for treats in the sun! Remember, taste is not the primary objective of food – health and stability is far more important!.
