Is Your Consumpton of milk products - Healthy - Deadly - or somewhere in between

Updated on January 10, 2011

Is consuming milk for your health a panacea or a poison?

It's poison according to the author of the book "MILK - THE DEADLY POISON" Robert Cohen

Someone has put out a video on utube about the subject of milk produced especially with the use of artificial growth hormone in order to produce more milk at a lower cost.

According to researcher and author Robert the protein "casein" that is in whey protein from milk prevents the absorbtion of calcium. So,why is milk seen as a panacea concerning calcium consumption? He says that we can get more calcium from garbonzo beans also known as chick peas160 miligrams per serving and Ammerith grain which has 260 milligrams per serving.

His research shows that the countries with the most osteoperosis from a lack of calcium absorption are Denmark,Norway,Holland,and Sweden.all of which consume large quanities of dairy products made from milk as well as milk itself.

Is this a good reason not to drink milk?

What about Yogert? It's made from milk !

Some Yogert is made with fat free milk.

Fat free milk has more calcium per serving than milk with fat in it.

Another question I have is

what effect does the fat in our milk have on our health?

I know toxins accumilate in fats,so do hormones as far as I know.I may be wrong about hormones being in fats although they may be in the proteins in milk.In that case artificial hormones in milk would be a bad idea if it's shown to cause breast cancer as has been the case in Denmark Norway,Holland and Sweden.

Fat free or skim milk is healthier than whole milk or 1% or 2% milk.

Another question

Why is milk homoginized ?

To keep the fat from seperating from the milk protein which naturally seperates.

Maybe,the biggest problem with consuming milk is the lack of the ability of many people to absorb calcium as well as lactose or milk sugar in milk.

Vitamin D3 is said to be crucial for overall health and we in the UnitedStates usually put vitamin D3 in our milk for that reason.

Should we consume only fat free milk and or milk that is also lactose free,including fat free yogert? I should say that in order for vitamin D3 to be absorbed it has to be consumed with a fat from some source. I've mixed fat free yogert with flaxseed oil and or soybean oil. Faxseed oil is high in omega 3 fatty acids.

Yogert is rich in sulfur rich protein which healthy to consume with a little omega 3 fatty acid mixed in along with fresh fruit.No extra sugar though.

The Yogert we eat should have at least six live yogert cultures that begin with an "L" which means large intestine and "B" which stands for small Bowls or lower intestine

Even then we should take a probiotic that has all the good bacteria we need for optimum health. 70% of our immune system is in our intestines.

You should ask your doctor about your bodies ability to tolerate milk and milk products and how your health might be affected by consuming them.

    Hi Someonewhoknows,

    I really hate the fact that most of the foods and drinks are messed with. Really makes me only want to eat only what I grow, but unfortunately at the moment it's not enough for myself and my family to survive on. I'm working on it though.

    I've done lots of research on ‘chemical poisons’ and was horrified to have discovered after just how many items from the poisons list were actually in our food and drinks.

    People ask why would they do such a thing, I ask in return why wouldn't they and why do they not teach these chemical poisons in schools? Well they simply do not want use to know about it all. I welcome to research ‘chemical poisons’ and then refer to the foods and drinks in their

    Interesting topic. I also wrote a Hub on milk. Many of us think that it is a healthy food, on the contrary the milk is not a food appropriate to humans.

    I'm not a big milk drinker, but I do buy organic milk. It actually stays fresher longer. I think as long as you load up on fat and aren't lactose intolerant, milk products are ok. Everything in moderation. Thanks.

    Brie, you better believe it. I suffer from this and so does my whole family. It is genetic.

    Way back in the Biblical times they didn't have huge antibotics or growth hormones then. Casein is very bad. I can't even eat yogurt or cheese or even butter. I will get sebaceous cysts. I am in the process of writing a hub about this and what the disease is that you get from consuming milk or casein and the growth hormone.antibiotics.

    Maybe some individuals bodies are able to adapt to the consumption of milk and red meat while others are not.I do know that the regular consumption of a particular food does cause the body to adapt to it. Many alcoholics apparently can tolerate amounts of alcohol that someone who was just introduced to it could not tolerate.

    Of,course breast milk from our mothers is considered healthy for the baby for a period of time but dairy calves as well as other animals are weened off of mothers milk after a time.So.why are we different in that respect?

    I suppose that if you are wandering around like many of our ancestors were then drinking milk from animals was a practical thing to do.Also ,I m sure that the hard work they had to do back then through physical labor probably protected them from cloged arteries.The milk they drank probably didn't have the fat that our modern milk does because we like the taste of fat we incorporate it into the milk through a process that causes the fat to attach to the protein in the milk and this is one reason whole or 1% -2% milk gas so much fat in it.Skim milk is the more natural state of milk.No fat in it.

    Butter is all fat.Butter fat is just fat that naturally seperates from milk.

    I have a hard time believing that something mentioned in the Bible as good could be bad for cows milk.

    The fact that it's organic would not change someones ability to digest it. It would just be less harmful because it had no toxins in it.Grass fed dairy cows would be healthier for the cow and it's offspring,but humans I don't think humans were designed to digest cows milk,very well.Even organic cows milk.Especially the fat in it.It clogs the arteries.

    In my opinion fat free milk is the safest to drink,if your going to drink it.I like fat free yougert mixed with some omega 3 fat along with some sweet fruit.It may not be the best source of calcium ,but I can tolerate it.
