Except for the fact that recent studies have found that one diet drink a week increases your risk of type 2 diabetes by 33 percent and a large diet drink increases the risk by 66 percent.


Do kids need milk? Is milk necessary for healthy bones and preventing osteoporosis? The data are clear, but our government polices don’t reflect the science.

Dairy and milk products do not promote healthy bones. In a large meta-analysis, milk did not reduce risk of fractures. Other studies have shown it can increase fracture rates. And the countries with the lowest milk consumption have the lowest risk of osteoporosis and fractures. Calcium is not all it’s cracked up to be. Studies show that higher calcium intakes are actually associated with higher risk of fracture.

Milk may not grow strong bones, but it does seem to grow cancer cells. Milk increases the hormone called IGF-1 or insulin-like growth factor, one that is like Miracle-Gro for cancer cells.  Dairy products have been linked to prostate cancer. And cows are milked while pregnant (yes, even organic cows), filling milk with loads of reproductive and potentially cancer-causing hormones.

There is absolutely no biological requirement for milk.

Milk is not nature’s perfect food unless you are a calf and should not be consumed in large quantities by most people, because it can promote weight gain, cancer, and even cause osteoporosis

I love milk and milk products.  I never drank it because I thought it was so healthy.  I actually drink a lot of milk and 1/2 and 1/2 in my coffee and I have never been overweight.  I think something that a lot of these articles neglect to tell you is that although diet does contribute to weight a lot of it is genetic.  No women in my family have ever been overweight.  I do know that I have some genetic ability to efficiently clear circulating fats from my system.  I have very high HDL, low LDL, and ridiculously low triglycerides.  I am not sure if that has something to do with why I have always been thin.

metabolism plays a big part in diet intake ... everyone is built differently ... the Orientals / Eastern Cultures knew it all along ...
milk and milk products was never that important in our daily diet ...

Where in the hell did you come up with this?????   What an absolutely absurd conclusion for anyone to draw much less believe.

You asked for Obamamerica, now you are going to get it.  Stand by for suck or as Pelosi says, "Embrace the suck".

The article is about milk, you are discussing a massive increase in type 2 diabetes from an incredibly small amount of diet soda.  :w00t:

I developed it a few years ago, after a lifetime of enjoying dairy (I was a dairy fiend!) At first I was disappointed as it was quite an adjustment to cut out dairy. But to be honest, I don't feel any differently since I stopped having it. Even though I buy milk substitutes or "lactose friendly" type products, I find I rarely have them anyways. Thanks for posting the article: I had wondered when they were going to find that cows milk isn't everything it's been cracked up to be.

Exploring your own consciousness is the fundamental right of every individual

Locking people in a cage because they choose to exercise that right should be considered a crime against humanity

Goat milk is healthy. Goats are animals that dont have cnacer.
I feel amazing after I stop using milk and cheese. Take calcium in tablets. It helps you for many things and also lack of calcium cause us to sweat.

That was my reaction. Especially because from geography I come we have big numbers of fine cheese.

But you can eat cheese from goats and sheeps.

Goat cheese is one of the few cheeses I don't like...sheep is good. We had goats when I was growing up, and I know this sounds strange, but goat cheese tastes like goats smell. I never did like that smell. lol

Yes it have bad smell. But so as many cheese I eat before.
Especially those with funghi. Which is bad for candida in colon. But still...its hard to say no.

Cheese, wine and pršut (specialy prepared meat from my country) and Im in paradise.

Michelle did you know that milk from Yak is pink? I never drink it but always wonder how pink cheese would taste.
