Milk Could Be Killing You

For a long time, drinking milk (i.e. cow’s milk) has been associated with good health. People of all ages, from young children to pregnant mothers, have been highly encouraged to drink a lot of milk to help reduce the risk for fractures and to support bone growth. However, a recent study published in the British Medical Journal showed different results. The study revealed that increase in milk intake was actually associated with higher risk of mortality, as well as higher incidence of fractures! [1]

How is this possible? Milk is supposedly good for you and studies have supported how it improves bone health – but why is increased intake associated with higher death rates and morbidity rates?

The Positives of Drinking Milk

Dairy products have high levels of bone-beneficial nutrients, specifically calcium. To promote bone health, long-term intake of 2500 mg per day is deemed safe. Calcium intake of less than 700 mg per day has been associated with bone loss (a decrease in bone mineral density or BMD) – which is why doctors recommend drinking at least one glass of milk a day. However, the study that recommends calcium intake of 2500 mg a day also recommends not to take in more than 2500 mg because of potential health risks. [2]

Death by Milk

The study by Michaelsson, et. al. in the British Medical Journal, followed two large groups of men and women in Sweden. They were administered a food frequency questionnaire at the beginning of the study and a follow-up questionnaire 7-10 years later. The mean of the final follow-up was done 20.1 years later after the administration of the first questionnaire. The results of the study were shocking – for every death of a woman who drank less than one glass of milk a day, two women who drank three or more glasses of milk a day died. [1]

The Problems Lies With Galactose

While calcium is no doubt good for health, galactose isn’t. D-galactose, a substance present in milk, was associated with signs of premature aging in a study with rats [3] – manifesting as shortened lifespan, presumably because of oxidative stress and chronic inflammation. These two factors were also mentioned in Michaelsson’s study, where in a higher intake of milk was positively associated with biomarkers of oxidative stress found in the urine.

Oxidative stress is an imbalance in the body that results in the production of “free radicals” or unbound oxygen. Free radicals damage blood vessels and tissues all over the body, which can cause widespread inflammation – a factor that contributes to various diseases that can affect the heart, liver, and other major organs of the body. [4]

The Pros of Eating Yogurt (and other fermented dairy products)

Because of the potential dangers of milk, a good alternative is to replace drinking milk with eating yogurt. Yogurt has the same calcium content as milk but none of the galactose – plus it’s rich in antioxidants and probiotics which promote good digestion and cleansing of the body. Other fermented dairy products are given the same recommendation.

So the next time you go to pick up milk at the grocery, think twice and grab some yogurt instead!

Take These 8 Nutrients 1 Hour Before Bed To Boost Deep Sleep And Metabolic Regeneration By 695%:

Do you ever have trouble "turning off your brain", or experience anxiety, poor sleep or high stress?

It's called Shallow Sleep Syndrome... and it affects a HUGE number of people in the modern age.

Also - have you gained weight - even though you are "doing what you always did"? *raises hand*

If you answered YES to any of these questions, you MUST watch this video:

Most people are unaware that your sleep and your weight are connected!

Science has proved without doubt that your body cannot function without adequate DEEP sleep.

Deep sleep facilitates Metabolic regeneration - which repairs tissues (including brain cells), rebuilds health and restores your ability to convert food to energy instead of fat.

Deep sleep also supports the production of Human Growth Hormone - which is considered the "fountain of youth" by anti-aging experts.

Without sufficient deep sleep, our natural production and growth of Human Growth Hormone is obliterated!

Your Metabolism is wrecked and you have dramatically increased risk of serious disease!

But it gets worse - lack of deep sleep also suppresses the hunger-regulating hormone Leptin, which results in runaway food cravings and the metabolic dysfunction responsible for "inexplicable" weight gain.

Our natural levels of deep sleep decline in our 30's and even more in our 40's, which leads to metabolic slowdown and consequently, increased signs of aging.

However a dangerous new problem has entered the arena.... technology.

The culprit?

The screen of your cell phone, tablet, laptop, computer and television!

In addition to the High Stress of our Modern Lifestyle, the blue light emitted by the screens of our electronic devices is Wreaking Absolute Havoc on our physiological ability to achieve the previous deep sleep that we need so badly! This also is scientifically established!

The blue light emitted by smartphones, TV, computer monitors, tablets, laptop and blue LEDs has a similar effect on our bodies as bright sunlight - messing up our circadian rhythms and confusing our bodies about whether we should be awake or asleep!

Blue Light KILLS Deep Sleep!

Blue light, especially in the evenings and night time, destroys our bodies ability to produce its natural deep sleep hormones!

Once these hormones are gone, so is the deep sleep responsible for the body's natural fat burning power.

Can you now see the simple link between our modern lifestyle and out of control weight gain so many are experiencing?

    Don’t believe everything you read. Or at least check into who paid for the survey before you start spouting it as gospel. The British Farmers at the moment are fighting the supermarkets for a better share of the money the get from the milk sales. At the moment the farmers are getting around 15p a pint which is ridiculous when you think they do all the work.
