This is a sobering post in the middle of a holiday season but with so many buffets, parties, punch bowls and baked treats it’s important to remember WHY we’re navigating past the dairy.
There are many DELICIOUS alternatives to conventional dairy products that there’s no need to sacrifice your health on the altar of taste and convenience. Check out this space and membership at Marilu.com for great recipes and product recommendations. http://www.marilu.com/becomemember.php
Ever since the Fukushima disaster in 2011, researchers have been testing foods and vegetables for radioactivity. The Department of Nuclear Engineering at UC Berkeley has been taking radiation samples since the Fukushima meltdown. They have tested both raw milk and store-bought, and have detected radioactive isotopes cesium-134 and 137 (Cs-134, Cs-137). This is alarming when you consider dairy as a “radioactive indicator” of our food supply. Dairy is a good indicator for radiation, because cows consume grass, food crops and water supplies. In simple terms, when dairy starts testing positive for radioactivity, it’s an indication of radioactive contamination of the entire food supply.
