Think Before You Drink…

Standard

…Or consume any dairy products! The findings are just so alarming! Why do I keep writing about it?

I know you probably think, “The woman is obsessed with dairy!” Well, you’re right, I am. After watching my gorgeous friend go through chemo and radiation for a year and dying of cancer, I wouldn’t wish that upon anyone. Hence, I’ve made it my mission to warn people about the disastrous effects of dairy and meat consumption! If you don’t believe that this could be true, then start doing the research. Of course you’re going to find “research” that will tell you that these products are harmless. I ask you to dig deeper. Who sponsored the research? The meat and dairy industry are billion dollar industries. They got professional writers, doctors, dietitians and researchers to try to convince you that this isn’t so. Do you think they want you to know this? Do you think they even care? Will they care if you get cancer in the future? No, I seriously doubt it because it’s all about profits!

Here’s a link from Science Alerts about milk and it’s link to prostate cancer specific mortality among US male physicians…and this is just one type of cancer. Click on the title below:

Whole Milk Intake Is Associated with Prostate Cancer Specific Mortality

 

They write, “Intake of total dairy products was associated with increased prostate cancer (PCa) incidence. Skim/low-fat milk intake was associated with risk of low-grade, early stage, & screen-detected cancers. Whole milk was consistently associated with higher incidence of fatal PCa. These findings add further evidence to suggest the potential role of dairy products in the development and prognosis of PCa.”

Think about it a different way, a steer is expected to weigh about 550 – 600 pounds by the time it is nine months old. A heifer will weigh about 440 pounds by the time it is eight months old. Calfs are weened from their mothers milk at 8-9 months old! The cows milk is intended for the calf, not for humans! Think about the enormous growth factor of that dairy milk. Now combine that “liquid meat” with some active cancer cells and you’ve got a potent cocktail for an explosion of new cancer cells to roam and grow further in the body.

You’re probably thinking, “Well, Nina, what do I drink and eat then?” Relax, if I a cheese lover could stop eating the stuff, then I know you’d be able to too! One easy way, in case you don’t know of all the other possibilities is to check out Kim Barnouin‘s fantastic book, “The Book of Vegan Swaps”!

Book of Vegan SwapsAll their books are fantastic! With so many other options to dairy products, there’s really no excuse or loss!

Make 2013 the year that you go dairy free!

Cheers! (With a glass of organic GMO free soy milk in hand) Here’s to a Happy, Healthy YOU!
