Is milk really a health food?
This short video, I came across on Youtube gives some great insight into the real value of milk. There is a world of difference between raw organic milk, and the typical stuff you find in the grocery store.
The very last thing he says, – Some European nations have found in their studies, coronary artery disease is directly associated with homogenized milk. – This really shocked me. If anyone is familiar with these studies, I’d love to hear about it in the comment box below.
So Why Does Milk Need to be Pasteurized and Homogenized?
What effect dies that have on our health? – Check out the video to get the whole scoop.
There are no hormones given to the cows during organic milk production. The cows live in a natural environment.
When cows are allowed to eat grass, their natural food, they have a better omega 3 / omega 6 fatty acid ratio. The CLA values are different. This makes for more nutritious and healthful milk.
Many people are allergic to milk. Some people don’t even realize they are allergic, they suffer from vague symptoms and don;t make the connection that it could be caused by an allergy to dairy. Lactose intolerance is just one issue. The proteins in milk can also cause problems. The pasteurization and homogenization processes don;t help the situation. If you suspect dairy allergy or sensitivity may be a problem for you, try eliminating all dairy products for a week or two and see if it makes a difference in how you feel. You just may end up feeling more energetic and healthier than ever.
