A reader commented on my BLOG yesterday (see comments) that soy and almond milks can contain casein. It is always best to read the labels and know the names of the things to watch out for. The label won’t say milk but it does say casein. If you have any other products that people think are vegan but are not, please let me know.

Milk could be “death in a bottle” and we mostly think of it as healthy and good for our kids. So many cancers are linked to it. Switch today and help save your family’s health!


3 Cups of Milk a Day?

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.

Soy Beans have a Long History

My good friend David sent this article on the history of soybeans. They have been around for a long time. They provide healthy nutrition, protein and are good in so many different kinds of recipes. Search the web for soybeans and try different ones. People enjoy veggie-burgers made from soy, humus, soy milk as a healthy alternative to cow’s milk, and many more. Try different things and enjoy new foods that are really healthy.

What makes us eat certain things?

Have you ever asked yourself why we eat or drink certain things? I have spoken, in this BLOG, about the problems associated with drinking milk. We are the only mammal that drinks the milk of another mammal on a regular basis. We are the only mammal that drinks milk beyond a young age. Think about early man and woman. Walking across a field with cows and one says to the other, “I wonder what the taste of that animals insides is like”. Maybe they were thirsty and saw young cows drinking from the mother. It is weird to fast forward to today and see every store with cow’s milk in it. We call it a staple as if it were needed for life. When in fact it causes cancer, allergies and a slew of other illnesses. Don’t even get me started on snails!

Jackie, this one is for you…

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!

What’s Wrong with Milk? Isn’t it American to Drink it?

Milk causes so many problems and diseases it is baffling that we still drink it. Vegan Mainstream says many Americans have an intolerance to it. Why are our bodies rejecting it? As mammals we were never designed to continue drinking milk throughout our lives. We are designed to drink mother’s milk NOT COWS MILK! We are also designed to drink it only until we can eat solid foods. Milk is linked to heart disease and cancer. Think hard about drinking that glass of milk and harder about giving it to your children. The life you save may be your own or your children’s.

Animal vs. Plant Protein


Growth hormone

Studies have been done comparing high protein eaters with lower protein eaters and no significant difference in IGF 1 levels were detected. But when they broke out the types of protein, animal vs. plant, they found animal protein raised IGF 1 levels while plant protein lowered the levels. Dr Greger says getting high levels of IGF 1 tells our livers to start building. Unfortunately tumors are the result. We don’t really want excessive growth (as adults). We want to maintain our growth. Eating meat will increase these growth hormones and eating plants will decrease the levels. Choose wisely.

What Does Your Gut say about Bowl Disease?

Milk fat may be the culprit in bowl diseases. Inflammatory bowl disease is on the rise. Are these diseases being caused by milk? If you are a regular reader of this BLOG, you know my feelings about milk! Babies should drink mother’s milk not cow’s milk and no adult should drink any milk. It is an epigenetic soup designed to reprogram the DNA of a new-born. As an adult we don’t want our DNA to be reprogrammed. Search this BLOG for the word “Milk” to see other BLOGs on this topic.

A study reported by PSA Rising, says that eating meat and milk products seems to cause a favorable rise in tumor growth. This can lead to cancer. If you are a big meat and milk and cheese eater, try reducing your intake drastically. Supplement your immune system by eating more fruits and vegetables. Give yourself a fighting chance.

What is Your Nutritional Intelligence?

If we score ourselves from 0 to 100 on how well we really eat we can see where we stand on the nutritional scale. We have to categories to consider: What doesn’t count and what does count.
What Doesn’t Count

• Meat
• Juices
• Potatoes
• Fried Foods
• Candies, cookies, cakes and other sweets
• Milk
• Cereal except oatmeal
• Corn
• All prepared foods (Cans, frozen and boxed)
• White bread
What Does Count

• Vegetables (raw or slightly cooked)
• Fruits
Whole wheat whole grain breads
Dark chocolate in moderation
Count each item in each meal that doesn’t count as -8 and count each item in what does count as 8. Add up each item you eat in every meal and snack for a day. If your score is negative set it to zero. If your score is over 100 set it to 100. Vegans can reach 100. Europeans are around 50-60. Americans are typically at 25-30. You can raise this score and raise the probability of good health.
Follow these simple daily rules:

• Eat what nature provides not what man makes.
• Eat more raw organic fruits and vegetables
• Cut back or drop sweets
• Cut back the sugar and milk in your coffee
• Cut back the animal protein (meats, eggs, cheeses and milk)
• Switch from white bread to a whole grain
• Switch from white pasta to a whole grain
