milk splash

Many people are becoming intolerant to cows dairy. Cows dairy can be found in

  • Milk (skimmed, semi skimmed, full fat)
  • Cheese (cheddar, blue, etc)
  • Butter
  • Cream (single, double etc)
  • Cottage cheese
  • Yogurt

Effects on the body can include

  • Mucus forming
  • Immune compromising
  • Milk is designed to feed a calf until it is weaned. Then the mother pushes it away to eat grass. Humans are not designed to consume dairy. Humans loose the digestive enzyme lactase which digests milk when we are aged 2 so dairy can create digestive complaints
  • Cows milk has 59 active hormones, scores of allergens, fat and cholesterol (nomilk.com) Dairy can cause weight gain, hormone imbalance and immune system problems
