According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the average American consumes more than 550 pounds of dairy products annually, which is 40 percent of the bulk of the food we eat. Yuck.
Let me start with some old research as I was taught this milk was bad starting in Chiropractic college 15 years ago in nutrition.
"Osteoporosis is caused by a number of things, one of the most important being too much dietary protein." Science 1986;233(4763)
"Consumption of dairy products, particularly at age 20 years, were associated with an increased risk of hip fractures...metabolism of dietary protein causes increased urinary excretion of calcium."American Journal of Epidemiology 1994;139
"Countries with the highest rates of osteoporosis, such as the United States, England, and Sweden, consume the most milk. China and Japan, where people eat much less protein and dairy food, have low rates of osteoporosis."
Nutrition Action Healthletter, June, 1993
Why you ask? This is because milk is made for COWS not people. Since there is more phosphorus in milk than people need. The body will get rid or the phosphorus by attaching two Calcium to it then out though the kidneys so there is a net loss of Calcium in the bones!!! So drink more and have more osteoporosis!
