The Harvard School of Public Health says drinking 3 cups a day may be more the influence of the dairy industry than scientific evidence. Drinking low-fat milk may actually cause more fat build up than the whole milk does. This is because fats tend to be absorbed slowly by our bodies making us feel full longer. Low fat is digested quickly and we feel hungry sooner. If you are a regular reader of this BLOG you know that there is evidence of health risks with any animal protein based foods but milk is a very high risk. It has been linked to cancer and heart disease. Remember we are the only animal that drinks milk after a very young age and the only animal that drinks the milk of another animal.

Are low fat items good for us?

A new study published by Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) says low fat milk does not prevent obesity in children. Milk is not good for anyone (see my BLOGs on milk) but people love to think low fat, low sugar, low everything is better for us. We can just eat a ton of it and it will somehow be OK. The so called diet sodas have not stopped obesity in this country or diabetes. Low fat milk won’t either. These are marketing labels to get your dollars and make you believe in false promises. BEWARE!

Love your Pets maybe it will improve your children’s health

Studies on adults are mixed but studies on children, says Dr. Greger, shows less common colds, ear infections and less illness in general. Maybe its the child’s infinite love and positive outlook. Pets may be making them happier and their fore healthier. If you are thinking about getting a pet for your child, it might just pay for itself in improved health and less doctor visits. They may even be lowering the child’s stress levels.
