Organic Milk – Slightly More Omega 3

In Milk by James Deal1 Comment

New WSU study suggests organic milk may be more heart-healthy Organically raised cows eat more grass and produce milk that is richer in “good” fatty acids than milk from cows fed corn and other grain-based feed, says a Washington State University analysis. Thanks to the Seattle Times. By Sandi Doughton, Seattle Times science reporter There’s no doubt eating organic food can reduce your exposure to pesticides, but the jury remains out on whether organically grown food is inherently more nutritious than food produced using the full chemical armory of conventional agriculture. Now, new research from Washington State University (WSU) concludes that when it …

Cow Milk – Not Good For Bones

In Milk by James DealLeave a Comment

GUEST COMMENTARY / RETHINKING NUTRITIONAL TRUISM Milk, unfortunately, builds weak bones By Beverly Hoback It’s September, and all across the country children and teachers are filling classrooms, playgrounds, and school cafeterias. Some are in new buildings, some old. Some have new textbooks, some old. Some are studying subjects I never heard of in elementary school, like computers, and some are studying materials pretty much like what I studied back in the ’60s and ’70s.

Milk Losing Popularity

In Milk by James DealLeave a Comment

PRETTY MUCH THE ONLY GOOD THING YOU CAN SAY ABOUT COW MILK – IS THAT IT IS FLUORIDE FREE Just like mother’s milk, cow milk is almost completely fluoride free. Even if the cow drinks fluoridated water, the milk is still almost completely fluoride free. The cow accomplishes this by producing less milk, by sacrificing some of the calcium in the milk to bind with fluoride and eliminate it. Cow milk is not appropriate for humans. It has little magnesium, potassium, and essential fatty acids. It contains too much protein and – if it is not fat free – too …

(NaturalNews) As the truth is beginning to tumble out about diet and health care, the milk myth is deserving of a closer look. The world at large has been brainwashed into thinking that milk and dairy are the ultimate (and only) source of calcium, not just for growing children. However, not only is dairy indigestible to many, it is also a source of disease. Milk is For Babies Mother’s milk is the ultimate source of food …

I support the right of people to buy, sell, and consume raw milk. In the case of raw milk, if the cows are healthy, maybe the milk is not harmful. On the other hand, can you be confident in our polluted world that any pasture is clean or any cow is free from infection? The people of India drank buffalo milk. However, they boiled it first. …

"rBGH Free" Label Legal in Ohio

In Milk by James DealLeave a Comment

This is Dr. Mercola’s summary. See my comments below: A few years ago, a number of U.S. states tried to ban “rbGH-free” claims on dairy. Monsanto, which owned rbGH at the time, helped found a group called AFACT, which supported the bans. AFACT was unsuccessful in most states, but it looked like they might win in Ohio, where the fight went to the courts. Recently, however, the Ohio court came to its decision. First, they ruled that milk in Ohio can still bear an “rbGH-free” label as long as it also bears the disclaimer stating that, “[t]he FDA has determined …
