Our Body - A Temple of God              

We have been taught since early school days that milk builds strong bones.  TV commercials of our favourite movie and sports stars only emphasize this fact even further with their white moustached mug shots.


Some of our favourite foods come from dairy .... cheese, ice cream and of course that good wholesome calcium-rich glass of milk.  But is milk really as good for us as advertised, or are we being deceived.


There is no arguing the fact that mother's breast milk is so important in the development of babies.  It is the most complete form of nutrients for a child's health.  But why is it when we wean our young from breast milk, that we then begin raising them on another animal's milk.  This is the very same milk that calves are weaned from.  There is a big difference between human babies and baby calves, and correspondingly a big difference between the milk that is intended to nourish human babies and baby calves.  Human infants take about 180 days to double their birth weight, and that human milk is 5 to 7 percent protein.  Calves require only 45 days to double their birth weight and cow's milk is 15 percent protein.  Is this milk really necessary in our diets?


According to Dr. Spock, who sold more than 75 million copies of his book on child care: "no human, no child, no adult needs cow's milk - it's a deception on the government's part to promote it".


When we have babies, we breastfeed them, and then at a certain point, we stop", explain authors Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin.  It is exactly the same for cows and every other mammal on the planet. They produce milk when they give birth, they feed their young, and then they stop. We are the only species on the planet that drinks the milk of another species.  Why?  Because the multi-million dollar dairy industry has convinced us that we need milk for healthy bones.  However, researchers have found that countries with the highest dairy intake also suffer the highest osteoporosis rates.


Robert Cohen, author of Milk, the Deadly Poison, states "Let's look at the Big Five in America.  The number one killer is heart disease, and then we've got osteoporosis and cancer, and diabetes and asthma.  We look at nations where they drink milk; we find these diseases are common.  We look at nations where cheese consumption has tripled in the last 30 years, like England and France and Canada and the United States, we find also a tripling of asthma and breast cancers".


And yet most Canadians and Americans think if you have fragile bones or the symptoms of osteoporosis, you have to drink more milk!


Professor Gary Null writes in his Complete Encyclopedia of Natural Healing, "In all respiratory conditions, mucous-forming dairy foods, such as milk and cheese, can exacerbate clogging of the lungs and should be avoided".  Very simply, when more mucus accumulates in the lungs than can be expelled, asthma attacks develop.  Many doctors and researchers are now beginning to feel that allergies may be the underlying problem behind the link between milk and asthma.


We are told that milk is pasteurized in order to remove unhealthy bacteria.  In actual fact, milk pasteurization destroys digestive enzymes and even doubles the amount of harmful bacteria.  Without these enzymes, milk is especially difficult to process in our bodies, especially since the human pancreas cannot always create these enzymes on its own.  When the pancreas is overtaxed diabetes and other diseases may occur.


90% of the protein in milk is casein.  Studies showed that casein increases cancer 100% of the time when introduced at any stage of cancer development.   When casein is extracted from milk, it is used as glue.  Do you ever wonder why there is a picture of a cow on Elmer's glue?  Now you know why milk is such a mucous-forming drink.  It is said that all dairy products are the most mucous forming foods known to man.


When referring to the Bible, there is never any mention to man drinking cow's milk.  There is one quote in Proverbs 27:27 however of goat's milk.  Here is the verse from the Ferrar Fenton translation:  "And rich milk from the goats to feed you - To feed your house, and nourish your girls".


It is true that goat's milk is closest to human milk.   Goat milk not only contains 20% less cholesterol than cow's milk, but is also easily digestible and can be consumed even by those with lactose intolerance.  It contains all the known and essential amino acids which have unique benefits in many diseases of humans.  It is also a known gentle cleanser and skin moisturizer.


One last little statistic:  Every day the average Canadian and American is consuming from all dairy products the equivalent cholesterol levels that are contained in nearly 50 slices of bacon!


If you suffer from any sinus related conditions, you owe it to yourself to try going without dairy products for 30 days.  I'm sure you will see the results for yourself!
