Top 10 Reasons To Not Eat Dairy & Some Interesting Facts

1).  It is the #1 food allergen.  This is agreed upon by Medical doctors, Naturopaths and Nutritionists.  It contains more than 25 different allergen causing proteins.

2).  Lactase, the enzyme needed to break down milk sugar stops being manufactured in the body between childhood and adolescence.  Over 70% of the world, yes the world is Lactase deficient.  This should indicate that adults should not consume dairy.

3).  Gas, bloating, diarrhea, abdominal cramping, bedwetting, snoring, teeth grinding = Lactose intolerance/dairy allergy.

*Interesting fact: The nutrients in a food cannot be absorbed if the food cannot be properly digested.  Therefore, you will absorb very little if any Calcium from Milk products.  Lactose intolerance can actually cause calcium and other mineral deficiencies.  

4).  If you are consuming dairy because you believe you are getting calcium from it, think again.  The pasteurization of milk causes it to lose 50% of its available calcium.  And if you are into drinking low fat or skim you will not be getting any calcium as the fat is what allows the calcium to be absorbed.  This complete lack of absorption is even more true for cheese.

*Interesting fact:  The countries that consume the highest amounts of Dairy also have the most cases of Osteoporosis. 

5).  Highly Acidic = Disease can only happen in an Acidic body.

6).  Inflammatory = Root of most if not all disease.

7).  Unless it is from pasture raised/organic cows who have not been pumped full of hormones and antibiotics it is absolutely pointless to consume.

*Greens, grains, nuts & seeds contain more calcium than dairy.

8).  If you are constantly consuming a food that you are allergic to, it increases your toxic load.  This will result in a weakened immune system, faulty digestion (leaky guy, low stomach acid, taxed pancreas and liver) which will then lead to Candida, asthma, allergies, skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea.

9).  If it is a colour other than cream or white it most likely has had food colour added to it.  Unless you are getting “june butter” which is from cows who have eaten the first grass of the season and so it contains higher beta carotenes, omega 3 and more vitamins/minerals in general. If it is the orange colour it probably has Yellow #5 in it.  This food colouring is directly linked to asthma, hyperactivity, and attention disorders.

*Interesting fact: Organic butter is typically not an issue due to its high fat content.  Should still be consumed in moderation and watch for hidden ingredients.  

10).  It is a fat and will be stored as fat. Which is fine if your body composition is below 10% for a male and below 20% for a female.

*Interesting fact: Butter and coconut oil are rarely if ever stored as fat.  They are almost always used for energy production.
