For years, we have been bombarded with advertisements of the dairy industry talking about how vital that cow’s milk is for our overall health. “It does a body good” and “helps to strengthen bones,” are two common claims about the product. Milk appears on thousands of ordinary products and is almost impossible to escape. But what is the problem? Is it really so harmful?
In a word, yes, it definitely is. There are a number of reasons why you should stay away from milk.
1. it ruins your bone health.
Wait a second, is not the calcium in milk actually make our bones stronger? That’s certainly what we’ve been led to believe by the milk industry, but why do you want to tell us the truth? Because pasteurization, milk actually has almost nothing of bioavailable calcium. In the absence of calcium, milk actually has an impact of acidification on the bones, causing decay.
2. Milk damages the intestine.
Raw milk is full of bacteria that is very important for good digestive health, but pasteurized milk is completely without these benign bacteria. This is one reason milk is so difficult to digest for many people. The lack of bacteria also causes the milk to be stored as fat.
