Will you be surprised to know that drinking milk is bad for you?

What’s in a glass of cow’s milk? You may be expecting to hear something to the tune of calcium, vitamins A and D, protein, and some other nutrients that we think are beneficial to the body. Well, a glass of milk also contains an acidic animal protein that leeches calcium from the bones, pus cells, bovine growth hormone, faeces, antibiotics, and a whole lot of unnecessary fat, cholesterol and calories — all of which create a terrible imbalance in the body.

Here are the reasons why milk is bad for you.

Prostate cancer

Milk and cheese have been linked to an increased risk of developing prostate cancer. But dairy-free diets? They’ve been shown to slow its progress.

Lactose intolerance

The lactose in cow’s milk can be difficult for people to digest, resulting in nausea, cramps, gas, bloating, and diarrhoea. Difficulty with dairy digestion can develop later in life and result in progressively worsening symptoms.

Acne

In multiple studies, the consumption of all types of dairy “products” was linked to an increased prevalence and severity of acne in both boys and girls.

Cholesterol

Milk is more hydrating than water, study shows • Earth.com

A single serving of milk can contain as much as 24 mg of heart-harming cholesterol. A single ounce of queso packs 30 mg. But no plant food contains any cholesterol whatsoever.

Ovarian cancer

A Swedish study showed that women who consumed four or more servings of dairy “products” each day were twice as likely to develop serious ovarian cancer.

Milk allergies

A different beast than lactose intolerance, milk allergies can cause potentially strong and dangerous reactions (usually in young children), such as vomiting or anaphylaxis.

Antibiotics

Drinking dairy milk may increase your risk of breast cancer, study ...

Cows are often pumped full of antibiotics to keep them alive and producing milk in filthy factory farm conditions. We can thank this rampant overuse of them for the surge in antibiotic-resistant bacteria. When humans are infected by these superbugs, antibiotics at best have decreased effectiveness and at worst are powerless.

Saturated fat

A single serving of whole milk can contain more than 20 per cent of the recommended daily allowance of saturated fat. If you consume three servings of whole milk, you’re already at 60 per cent for the day—even before eating any food. Cheese is even worse: Harvard reports that pizza and cheese are the biggest food sources of saturated fat in the American diet.

Weight gain

What Is the Acidity or pH of Milk?

Despite industry claims, a study of more than 12,000 children showed that the more milk they drank, the more weight they gained—and skim and 1 per cent milk actually appeared to lead to more weight gain than drinking 2 per cent or whole milk. The study also found that replacing soda with milk did not lead to weight loss.

Sodium

Cheese can contain up to 400 mg of sodium per ounce. Varieties including halloumi, imported blue, feta, and Edam (as well as processed cheeses) are so loaded with sodium that they’re actually saltier than seawater.

Besides humans (and companion animals who are fed by humans), no species drinks milk beyond their natural age of weaning or drinks the milk of another species. Cow’s milk is suited to the nutritional needs of calves, who have four stomachs and gain hundreds of pounds in a matter of months—sometimes weighing more than 1,000 pounds before they’re 2 years old. Cow’s milk does not suit the nutritional needs of humans, so it’s no wonder that consuming it and its derivatives cause us so many problems.

It’s time to accept the truth: If she’s not your mom, it’s not your milk.
