2. Cow’s milk steal nutrients from the body. In order to return to its natural alkaline state, the body neutralizes the acid by taking the calcium and phosphorous from the bones.
3. Cow’s milk causes allergies. According to USA Today, approximately 60% of adults cannot digest milk. The article also reports that about 75% of the population is lactose intolerant. This means that most of the population is allergic to milk and while many people don’t show allergic reactions, several others suffer from serious allergies.
4. Dr. T. Campbell showed in his book “The China Study,” that casein from milk promoted cancer in every stage of its development.
5. Several scientific studies have concluded that the body barely absorb the calcium in cow’s milk. Amy Lanou Ph.D., nutrition director for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine in Washington, D.C., states, “The countries with the highest rates of osteoporosis are the ones where people drink the most milk and have the most calcium from cows in their diets.”
6. Cow’s milk causes diabetes. In a 2001 study done in Finland, researchers demonstrated that early introduction of cow’s milk increased susceptibility to type 1 diabetes in 3,000 infants.
7. Respiratory problems and illnesses are associated with the consumption of casein from milk, according to studies.
8. Milk is very insulinogenic. Researchers have found that milk, casein and whey, stimulate the production of insulin from the pancreas. Milk has a very high insulin index, contributing to the development of diabetes.
9. Hormones and antibiotics weakens the immune system. Cow’s are pumped with antibiotics and hormones to prevent disease and so they can grow bigger and produce more milk. These additives are actually attributing to people becoming sick.
10. Casein in milk may cause severe auto-immune problems. During digestion casein partially breaks down into acid and gets into the bloodstream. Thereafter, the acidic substance pass through the brain where it can bind to opioid receptors. These opioids have a direct effect on immune function which is linked to autoimmune diseases.
