New Study Shows That Just One Thing Can Cause Premature Death

For more than 50 years the dairy industry has worked hard at convincing people that their products are loaded with bioavailable calcium levels. This is not true, however. When milk undergoes the pasteurization process, it only makes calcium carbonate, which cannot enter the cells of your body without a chelating agent. In fact, your body will actually pull calcium from your bones, along with other tissues, to buffer this calcium carbonate in the blood. Leeching calcium from your bones causes osteoporosis.

Even though we are taught to think that pasteurization is the only safe way to drink milk, that is only partially true. Heat does destroy dangerous bacteria, but it hides evidence of dirty, pus, and the fact that most dairy cows are kept in filthy conditions. It’s much cheaper for the dairy industry to continue to produce “dirty” milk and simply kill the bacteria through heat, rather than clean up the conditions that these cows are forced to live in. Due to an increase in the pathogens found in milk, it must go through several heating and filtering treatments. Each one of these uses heat ranging from between 100 to 175 degrees. Big Diary counts on this multitude of heat treatments to hide the disgusting sanitary conditions cows are kept in and milk that is filled with manure, debris, and even pus. Consumer Reports conducted a study of 125 milk samples and found that 44 percent of these contained as many as 2,200 organisms, and by organisms they mean coliforms and fecal bacteria, per cubic centimeter. Does this sound like it does a body good?

Dairy is really pushed on us from the moment we are born. We are told it is virtually the only way we can have strong, healthy teeth, and strong bones, not to mention avoiding osteoporosis. But if this is true, why do Americans have the highest risk of osteoporosis in the world?

    Why isn’t raw milk an option for vegans or people in large cities? And what are the risks of drinking raw milk?
