Why avoid Cow’s Milk?
Here are the top ten reasons to avoid Cow’s milk:
- Cow’s milk is NOT the same as human milk; humans do not produce the proper enzymes, protease, or lactase and its proteins CANNOT be digested, instead it putrefies in the colon, producing allergens and histamines.
- Cow’s milk is intended to support the growth and development of up to a two ton animal, not an average less than 200 pound human, which adds unhealthy pounds to the human body.
- The phosphorus in cow’s milk inhibits calcium from being absorbed and utilized in humans.
- Since cow’s milk contains more phosphorus than calcium, the human body will take calcium from its own bones to try and achieve the proper phosphorus/calcium ratio in an effort to digest it.
- Pasteurized cow’s milk is acid-forming causing the body to deplete its reserves of B-12 stored in both the liver and pancreas as well as depleting its reserves of sodium, potassium, and calcium in its effort to neutralize the excess acid milk causes, resulting in vitamin, mineral, and enzyme deficiency.
- Cow’s milk causes heavy mucous production and congestion in humans, and is the largest cause of babies’ runny noses and drooling. Most children raised on cow’s milk end up on antibiotics because this milk is so debilitating to the human immune systems causing many childhood diseases, allergies, and susceptibility to frequent colds and flues.
- 50% of Americans tested for allergies reacted to cow dairy products due to the lack of lactase, the enzyme that it takes to digest milk (lactose).
- When cow’s milk is pasteurized it becomes a slow poison for human bodies and for calves. Calves fed on pasteurized cow’s milk, even if it is from its own mother, will die in four to six months.
- Drinking and eating cow’s milk products perpetuates cruelty to dairy animals.
- Cow milk protein is structured to be digested by a ruminating, cud chewing animal with a four chambered stomach that produces rennet, and is therefore not digestible by a human with a single, non-rennet producing stomach, thereby causing indigestion, acid reflux, IBS, yeast infections, constipation or diarrhea, bloating, allergies, and immune deficiencies.
