Milk: It’s for Babies. Unveiling the Great White Lie

Let’s face it folks, if you are over two years old, you shouldn’t be drinking milk. Milk is for babies, not adults, period. It’s easy science, if we were meant to drink milk we would be nursing our whole lives. Milk is not healthy for you, and it’s certainly not good for children. Fact, lactose intolerance affects nearly 65% of humans after infancy. Got your attention? Keep reading.

Think about it, we impregnate an animal outside of our species, drain the viscous mammary gland fluid, and market it for profit; billions of dollars of profit. No more dairy industry lies, the truth is out. Sound and proven medical research (see the bottom of this article) has shown that dairy does not make bones stronger, increases the likelihood of many types of cancer (including prostate cancer), is linked to Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease, and causes acne, bowel irritation, and constipation. The bottom line? Dairy is not good for us.

To make their billions, the Dairy Council and other powerful dairy lobbyist groups have created one of the longest running campaigns of lies in our lifetimes. Big Dairy has spent an endless amount of money to promote a dangerous fallacy. One of the most outrageous statements in modern advertising was “Milk, it does the body good.” That they got away with this for so long makes me sick. Look folks, let’s say it again, milk is for babies. Remember, “Got Milk”? How about, “Got Prostate Cancer?” The dairy industry makes makes billions of dollars of years on hyped-up lies.

Oh sure, dairy will show us study after study of the benefits of milk. The tobacco industry showed us similar reports about how smoking was good for us and in no way could be linked to lung disease. Monsanto shows us reports that glyphosate doesn’t cause cancer. They will say, “You can find correlations between anything.” This tired argument has been used by industry spin-doctors for decades to find ways to correlate unhealthy products with big profits. Unfortunately for these industries, we are living in a newly transparent world where truth spreads. The science is there, we just need to listen.

Milk Fact Check

  • Milk does not make bones stronger and studies have shown a link to higher rates of bone fractures in milk drinkers
  • Long-term research has shown moderate milk drinkers have nearly twice the risk of early death and significantly higher rates of cancer
  • Dairy has been linked to an increase in prostate cancer and ovarian cancer
  • Dairy is linked to Multiple Sclerosis
  • Dairy products have recently been linked to Parkinson’s Disease
  • Milk increases IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor-1) that is linked to increase in multiple forms of cancer
  • Increases constipation and bowel inflammation/irritation
  • Causes dermatology issues such as acne

Like I said, the not-so-funny thing is that the dairy industry will produce study after study pointing towards the benefits of milk. But come on, wake up call folks, what do they have to gain? Money. And while there certainly may be a proven benefit to some of the nutrients in milk, these same nutrients are readily available through common foods that are good for you rather than being linked to cancer, early death, and a slew of other medical issues.

Milk lies

There is no sane argument for drinking milk. It’s not healthy, the evidence is there. We need to cut down, and cut out if you can, consumption of dairy including yogurts and cheese. It’s important to to consider the origin of these products, and the poisons they contain.

Wake up people, milk is not meant to be consumed by adults. A hard reset is needed here. It’s not easy, dairy is everywhere, but there is nothing innocent about it. If you are a pizza-lover like myself, then you really need to consider what is in most commercial cheeses- added hormones, preservatives, and pesticide residues, all melted together in a pussy mammary gland cocktail for you. Chew on that.

Once again we can fall back to, “Everything in moderation, right.” Wrong. Stop supporting a corrupt and greedy industry that has been deceiving you despite the writing being on wall. Get yourself off the cow teat and start living a longer and healthier life.
