About MILK…

Milk is bad for your health

“More and more research is pointing to the harmfulness of cow’s milk. Most people have grown up believing in healthy milk. Recent research is less supportive of such thinking and even warns that milk can even harm people. Today, many people still wave their hands, saying that research is exaggerated. Sometimes doctors spat on a wound because the belief was accepted that saliva accelerates healing processes. That would be outrageous today. According to the organization No to milk, a similar thing will happen with the attitude towards milk.

The widely accepted belief that milk is an excellent source of calcium has been turned upside down by research that finds just the opposite. There are links between the amount of milk a country consumes in a year and the amount of bone disease that that country records on an annual basis. Countries with the lowest milk intake also have the lowest levels of osteoporosis – including China.

Milk takes calcium from the bones

Milk lowers pH levels. This is a condition that the body needs to correct. An excellent neutralizer is calcium, which the body draws from the bones. The calcium we need for strong bones is actually consumed to neutralize the lowered pH caused by consuming milk.

The other side of industrialization

Part of the industrialization of the food industry is also reflected in milk quality. They found growth hormones and antibiotics in milk because they are used to feed dairy cows on farms. The growth hormone rBGH is added to the diet of dairy cows in the desire for higher earnings because it increases the amount of milk produced. It is this hormone that causes an increase in the level of the hormone IG-1 in the human body. Scientists have linked this condition to the growth of cancer cells.

What are the alternatives?

It is better to enjoy plant alternatives instead of cow’s milk. A study that found a link between cow’s milk consumption and osteoporosis found that plant sources of calcium are much better for humans. Namely, the body absorbs calcium much easier from plant foods.

In addition to green and leafy vegetables, lovers of milk and dairy products can also buy vegetable milk. Hazelnut, coconut, almond, soy, rice, oat and kamut milk are available on Slovenian shelves. There is also rice and soy cream for cooking, and we also find soy yogurts. In Slovenia, we also have an excellent offer of alternative cheeses – in addition to all types of tofu, you can also buy cheese that melts on pizza or lasagna.
