3 more reasons to give up milk & other dairy products
After giving up dairy, people report having more energy, better digestion, better skin, less puffiness, and less stuffiness in their sinuses. Seriously – you’ll look and feel better. And you’ll smell better, too.
Antibiotics are frequently used to treat the multitude of cow ailments that come from the common and unnatural dairy production practices such as hormone therapy, force feedings, and steroid use. If you’ve ever breastfed a baby, you know that whatever YOU eat, the baby also eats. Same thing works with the cow’s milk – whatever goes in the cow comes out in the cow’s milk. More antibiotics (and hormones, and steroids) for you.
Milk and dairy products are not a necessary source of calcium. The type of calcium in cow’s milk is too coarse for absorption in the human body. Most of us get enough calcium through other foods like salmon, sardines, soybeans, tofu, nuts, sesame seeds, spinach, broccoli, and other dark green leafy vegetables. (Pssst – where do you think cows get calcium? From grasses, of course. Green grasses. Unless they’re only eating some kind of feed – then the calcium is a supplement. Learn from the cows! Get calcium from greens!)
