Some People Refuse To See Fact

is milk really healthy?By : Lauren Woods

How come even when you present people with fact about the vegan lifestyle, people don't believe? It is so frustrating! I don't push it in anyone's face, because I'm fresh as a vegetarian and still learning myself- but the more I learn, the more I want to share.

All those years I was drinking milk I was feeling so good about it... I just can't see how myself, and so many people remain ignorant about nutrition.

The milk myth has spread around the world based on the flawed belief that this protein and calcium-rich drink is essential to support good overall health and bone health in particular at any age. It is easy to understand that the confusion about milk’s imaginary benefits stems from the fact that it contains calcium – around 300 mg per cup.

But many scientific studies have shown an assortment of detrimental health effects directly linked to milk consumption. And the most surprising link is that not only do we barely absorb the calcium in cow’s milk (especially if pasteurized), but to make matters worse, it actually increases calcium loss from the bones. What an irony this is!

Here’s how it happens. Like all animal protein, milk acidifies the body pH which in turn triggers a biological correction. You see, calcium is an excellent acid neutralizer and the biggest storage of calcium in the body is – you guessed it… in the bones. So the very same calcium that our bones need to stay strong is utilized to neutralize the acidifying effect of milk. Once calcium is pulled out of the bones, it leaves the body via the urine, so that the surprising net result after this is an actual calcium deficit.

Knowing this, you’ll understand why statistics show that countries with the lowest consumption of dairy products also have the lowest fracture incidence in their population (there’s more on this later).



  1. This is 100% propaganda. Milk is not and never has been bad for us. Nice try hippies.

    1. This is true.Whoever came up with the whole "drinking milk is good for you" is all bs.We're NOT baby cows, we don't need cows milk.

    2. No this stuff on this page is false. Drinking milk is good for you. There is absolutely nothing wrong with dairy. As for baby cows, they don't need the milk. They are just veal anyways.

    1. Animals are either our pets,entertainment clothing, or food. That is their only purpose on this planet. I support all the industries. I am proud to support them.

  3. Why would you come on a vegetarian blog if you are such a supporter of the meat/dairy industry? Don't you have a life? And do a little research before judging. Try watching or Earthlings for example and THEN if you still think that the way we treat animals is ok, come back and explain it to us poor veg who do not understand. But I bet you won't watch because you're afraid of our "propaganda", aka the TRUTH.
