I addition to the article recently published and written by guess who? I just wanted to pass along a little more info for you. There are hundreds of studies proving the negative consequences of consuming dairy from cows. Here is just one, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1374738

The problem with milk is not pasteurization, that is what our governemnt thinks will make it OK, NOT! There are many problems with dairy product but here is one you probably have never heard of; beta-Casomorphine-7 a naturally occurring opioid. It causes histamine to be released in our body creating chronic systemic inflammation and it is also addictive. It takes several pounds of milk to make one pound of cheese, thus concentrated morphine like opioid. Mother Nature puts it there for a reason. It causes babies to sleep after nursing and makes them want to nurse. It is not for adult humans or any humans. It is for baby cows.

Also the type of casein in cows milk is much different than that of human milk. Our bodies have a very difficult time breaking it down and this causes further inflammation particularly in our digestive tract. We have a hard time breaking it down because we lack the enzyme necessary to cleve it apart. Only baby cows have this enzyme and only for a short period of time.

As Krista explains everyone needs to read The China Study. It very strongly proves the association between dairy proteins and cancers.

So you would advise no dairy at all? I do love cheeses and have cut back considerably but not entirely. Do you think a once every couple of weeks addition to veggies or salads ok? Or none at all? What about yogurt? I occasionally add a little Fage non fat plain to a nutriblast for the creaminess and protein. Should I stop?
Lorraine, great question. I advise moderation in all things but understand that dairy from cows is highly inflammatory to our bodies and it is linked to many illnesses and diseases. Having some occasionally is fine as long as you keep it occasionally. If you do eat dairy I recommend eating goat or sheep because it is closer to human milk in content and less inflammatory to our bodies. If you must, I recommend goat yogurt and goat cheese and nothing from a cow. Greek yogurt typically comes from a cow unless it says made from goats milk. I do use organic, free range, lactose free whey protein concentrate that is uncooked in my smoothies and products. The whey in dairy is not the part that is so problematic. It's the antibiotics, hormones, lactose, casein protein and beta-Casomorphine-7 that causes us problems. I hope this helps. Healthy wishes Wally Bishop C.N.C.
