Do You Milk?

There is so much data about the correlation with milk and chronic diseases. There was a lot of press about A1 vs A2 types of milk and the correlation with heart disease about 7 years ago. Now there was just another study released that correlated milk intake in adolescence with prostate cancer which is what prompted me to write this post.

I am not going to go into much detail here, but there is the website that contains a plethora of references.

I think it is unfortunate that so many people believe that pasteurized homogenized milk that can come from many cows in one carton is healthy.   Perhaps raw milk from organic grass fed cows can be healthy for people that are in a ‘deficient’ state.  Or milk from goats or other animals not in feedlots (as some ‘organic’ milk is!).

But we really need to think about drinking milk.  Small amounts are probably OK as the dose can make the poison in most cases.  (except IgE allergies which there are many to milk products).  But drinking a glass of milk is just not a smart idea.

Here is another good article:
