Milk! That's crazy! Is it possible that we have been sold another myth about the
healthiness of milk? It's scary to think that my whole life I've been drinking
milk and thinking that I'm doing something good for my body when in all
actuality, I'm creating the perfect environment for Cancer to grow. No wonder
why many European nations have banned our milk. Our cow's milk contains at
least 59 different bioactive hormones which are increasingly linked to the
growth of Cancer and its' development which is exactly why I have chosen to use
Almond milk in all my recipes.
One hormone in particular called the Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone, or "rBGH" is
injected into our cows so that they will produce up to 20% more milk than usual.
It is a genetically engineered/ man-made version of the natural growth hormone
produced by cows. The problem with this is the fact that very high levels of
this hormone is now in our milk. Hmmm, and we wonder where cancer comes from.... Not only does it make the cows sick, but it produces another type of hormone called the Insulin Growth Factor or
"IGF-1." a key factor in the rapid growth and development of malignant tumors. Increased levels of this blocks natural defense mechanisms against early cancers. Who knew?
The good news is, if you really love milk, you don't have to completely give it up.
Just look for and buy milk that specifically says "No rBGH" on it. Then you know
that your buying milk that isn't potentially harmful to your body. The same goes
for cheeses and icecream. There are also other healthy alternatives to choose from.
You can look for these type of products in your whole foods markets, natural
health food stores, or the organic section in your supermarket. It's better to
start making healthier food choices now than never, because Cancer is not prejudice.
It sees no race, age, nor gender. There is nothing more valuable than a persons
health which results in the outcome of a persons life. It's not about giving
up the foods you love. It's about maintaning optimal health so that you can be here
long enough to love.........
Believe me, I'm not saying that it's easy. For me, making these changes are still a
working progress. I just know more now than ever before that it is imperative for us
all to be more conscious about what we buy and put into our bodies. Take a look............................
