This assignment was for week 3. I was a searcher.
I have been reading all the blogs and the ones about milk piqued my interest. Therefore, I decided to do some research on the different stuff that's in milk. You may be surprised, upset, or interested in knowing that milk is not really milk.
I was reading this web page titled: The Truth about Milk by: Dave Rietz at notmilk.com
Rietz stated that milk is for baby cows not human babies, and that it is an unhealthy fluid from diseased animals that contain a wide range of dangerous substances. The content of cow's milk consists: 59 active hormones, allergens, fat, and cholesterol. In addition, herbicides, pesticides, dioxins, 52 antibiotics, blood, pus, feces, bacteria, and viruses. These items are linked to many causes of deaths in our country (any country that consume milk).
o 724,859 Heart Diseases are attributed to fat and cholesterol from meat and dairy.
o 541,532 Malignant Neoplasms are linked to cancer from milk and dairy.
o 112,584 Bronchitis, Emphysema, Asthma are linked to toxins in dairy milk.
o 91,871 Pneumonia & Influenza are linked to a weak immune system and mucus from dairy milk.
o 64,751 Diabetes linked to dairy milk
o 30, 575 Suicide linked to behavioral problems from dairy milk
o 26, 182 Nephritis (Bright's disease - inflammation of the kidneys) linked to dairy milk
This list goes on but as you can see milk really is not just milk it has a whole host of deadly agents, including a powerful growth hormone called IGF-1 (Insulin Growth Factor). This hormone is a fuel cell for many cancers including; breast, prostate, and colon cancers.
I am glad that I do not drink milk. I have been cancer free for 2 years, I was diagnosed with stage 3C breast cancer, and I have been researching how I ended up with this life threatening disease. I will add this to my list of stuff to stay clear of and continue my research, because I do not have any family members who have had breast cancer. I have concluded contacted breast cancer may have been linked to the food that I have been consuming.
So, a lot of people, children, and babies drink milk - does this information mean that at some point we will all develop cancer?
