Got Milk? You Don't Need It.

Hello everyone, it has been quite a while since our last post but I am thrilled to share an infographic about milk that was shared with us.  It was put together by a team of designers and researchers.  Please check it out and share it with your loved ones and check out their page: www.learnstuff.com.
Got Milk?

For years, we’ve been told that milk does a body good. But does it really? Though touted as the healthier option at home and in restaurants, milk has roughly the same calorie count as soda and 2% milk contains the same amount of saturated fat as french fries. Given these two facts, the correlation between high milk consumption and high rates of Type 1 diabetes and heart disease makes sense. Even though one-third of Americans are lactose intolerant, the U.S. still consumes nearly 9 times the amount of milk that China does. So why do we drink so much milk? Because cows are making more of it. With the introduction of growth hormones like rBST, milk cows are producing nearly twice as much as they did in 1970.
Milk – bad for us, bad for cows.

  1. I’ve never given up dairy, but I have given up milk as a test, I felt no different. There are plenty of vitamins and nutrients from all kinds of sources – so I don’t think living without dairy will hurt you – I also don’t think living with it will hurt you – just my personal opinion. If you test it out and you feel a lot better – then great, if you feel the same then why bother. It bothers me to demonize real food. At this point there is a witch hunt on dairy, eggs, red meat, fruit and grains! Its too much.
