As “whole” milk was called in the early part of the last century it was “actually” used as medicine . As the article state in the” Health benefits of raw milk “, milk straight from the udder a sort of stem cell of foods was used as medicine to treat and frequently cure some serious chronic diseases . From the time of Hippocrates to after the world war 11, this white blood nourished and healed millions .
The “2” most important points 1] Milk has to be whole , without the fat you cannot absorb the fat soluble vitamins A and D 2] It should be from cows that have been “grass” fed .
Other points :
- whole milk contains omega 3
- It reduces the chance of diabetes by 25%
- It contains CLA [ conjugated linoleic acid which boosts the immune system tremendously]
- Study’s show it actually helps to lose weight [ fat] .
- It cuts the risk of heart disease
- It’s a great source of calcium
Think about this , go back like 100yrs ago , people grew up and lived on whole milk their whole lives and were way healthier than we are now . And you didn’t hear of all the disk and skeletal degeneration as well as osteoporosis in women which is epidemic today .
It’s one of the original 4 food groups . “Whole” grains are good for you contrary to all the nonsense you hear today ,then why wouldn’t” whole” dairy also be good for you ? . How could something whole be bad for you ?, or how could a food group be bad ?.
As for the animal argument [ no animal after it’s weaned drinks milk ] it’s ridiculous , because were not animals , we are [ HUMANS], remember in grade school you learned of the “3 “kingdoms 1] Human 2] Animal 3] Plant .
Osteoporosis as well as disk and skeletal degeneration are right now epidemic especially in women, do you not see the correlation since” hardly” anyone consumes “whole” milk roughly 15% of the American population ,but 2 %, 1 % , and skim ,believing the” big lie” ,whole dairy is detrimental to one’s health ?.
And if all these substitutes are acceptable replacements for whole dairy [ almond , soy , flax, etc ] again , then why does the immediate above point hold true?.
Finally, the bible is “very big” on [ milk] it had to be whole, hello ! Ex 3 : 8 , Ex 3 : 17 , Ex 13 : 5 , Ex 33 : 3 [ Niv] bible .
No, you need to go out and buy whole milk to fulfill what one of God’s great prophets told us Isa 55 : 1 [Niv] bible , and quit believing all the nonsense you hear today .
