Period.

 

There are different ways to obtain your calcium needs.  

Blood, pus, antibiotics....those are just a few of the things in animal milk.

 

Drinking milk from another species is just an amazing generational marketing scheme from The Dairy Council. 

 

Milk doesn't do a body good...raw or not. 


 

WRONG.


Wrong? .......   based on what?    

 

We're the only mammal on the planet that drinks another mammal species' milk ..... and drinks it past infancy.   There's a reason so many people just can't tolerate dairy.


@Tinkrbl44

And there's evidence mounting which links bovine antibodies to early-onset Type 1 diabetes.  

 

Can't imagine how a parent could continue to give cow's milk to their children knowing this information.   Knowingly giving your child that burden of T1 diabetes & all the complications because of it...wow. 


I want a source for this. And by that I mean a recent source backed by science.

 

From what I've read, and it's been limited, this is still a theory and it also includes hydrolyzed infant formulas along with milk as being potential culprits among those with a genetic predisposition.

@sidsmom    Sometimes your advice makes a lot of sense but way out in left field with this one.   Milk is the best source of calcium.   Period.   I don't know where people come up with this kind of advice. 


 


 EXCELLENT POST! You're correct. She's wrong.

Milk is not the best source of calcium

 

Leafy greens, fruit, beans, and seafood contain calcium. 

 

We'd really be a lot healthier if people consumed less animal milk products.

When i was little they thought I may be allergic to cow's milk so they told my parents to use goat's milk. Being we lived on a farm my dad went and got a goat. My oldest brother would have to milk her and she was obnoxious - she would bite him and butt him and kick him all the time. He hated her. Turned out I wasn't allergic to cow's milk but we kept that goat anyway. My brother named her Satan.

While other foods do have calcium they are lacking in the vitamin D and the fat molecule necessary for our body to store calcium. Milk has the calcium and the vit d and the fat molecule, all of which are a necessity to our body. People tend to get way overboard on this low fat = there is a certain amount of fats needed by our body same as there is a certain amount of carbs and proteins.

**Thanks!

 

Cultures around the world rely on plant-based sources for their nutritional needs....up and including calcium.    

 

There are too many studies to back this up.  I'm surprised in this day/age people still have this antiquated 'animals are best' mentality.    Lots and lots of plant-based studies.   

 

Where do we get this information?

The Gold Standard of plant-based research is The China Study by Dr. T. Colin Campbell.  He has spent decades studying the benefits of eating a plant-based diet.  But again, there are TONS of resources backing up the benefits of a plant-based diet.

 

Dark leafy greens & legumes are the best sources of calcium.  

 

Pssst:

Where do you think cows get THEIR calcium to grow strong bones?  

Greens! 😀

I really don't mean to be a smarty pants but this post is why people should never ever take medical advice from a message board.
