Milk is super bad for you (go figure)

While this article sounds tinfoil-hatty, I have heard and read the same from multiple other sources which I deem to be credible. AND this article does a decent job of linking to other studies and articles.

Key point:

“Because milk is very mucus-forming in the human body, it is believed to contribute to allergies, ear infections, Type 1 diabetes, anemia, and even constipation. In addition, the food may contribute to various types of cancers as consumption of the product increases the body’s level of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1).”

I’m starting to drift toward the philosophy, “nearly anything the government wants to sell me THAT BADLY, probably isn’t all that good for me”. (An incomplete list of exceptions: vaccinations, exercise.)

P.S. I’ve been dairy free for 17 months, and I’m doing just fine.

P.S.S. Don’t start with me about underdeveloped countries. We’ll talk to underdeveloped countries when they get up to the point of feeding most of the population, and pushing THEM to spend lots of money on milk and cheese, k?
