Full-Fat Cheese Has Many Health Benefits, Including Weight Loss

Trading saturated fats for added sugars and trans fats in our diet is among the worst lifestyle alterations to occur in modern history. We now know this is a recipe for obesity, heart disease, cancer and other chronic diseases.1,2

Many of these illnesses are now showing up in children, who are exposed to these ingredients even prior to birth through their mothers’ diets.

The preponderance of research shows that once you reach 18 percent of your daily calories from added sugar, there’s a 200 percent increase in metabolic harm that promotes prediabetes and diabetes.3

Fortunately, the low-fat recommendation — which flourished as a result of flawed science linking heart disease with saturated fat and the suppression of research showing sugar was to blame — is finally, albeit slowly, starting to lose its stronghold. (more…)

Pasteurized Milk Speeds Death, Heart Disease, Cancer, Bone Fractures; Yogurt and Cheese Have Opposite Effects


A large study by researchers from the City University of New York has found that pasteurized milk increases the risk of death and the risk of bone fractures, while the yogurt and cheese has the opposite effects.

The research, published in the British Medical Journal, followed 61,433 women between 39 and 74 years old at the beginning of the study and 45,339 men aged between 45 and 79 years old at the beginning of the study.

The researchers then followed the women for an average of 20 years and followed the men for an average of 11 years. The researchers then correlated the average number of glasses of milk per day was consumed over that period, using food frequency questionnaires.

The researchers measured death among the groups and bone fracture rates along with inflammation markers PGF2-alpha collected from urine and interleukin-6 (IL-6) collected from the blood.

9 Reasons To Stop Drinking Any Kind of Pasteurized Milk

Pasteurization is a dangerous method of heating our foods with tragic side effects which are largely ignored bu the FDA and downplayed by the dairy industry. To accept these facts would be to surrender after a hundred-year war indiscriminately waged against all bacteria–a hundred-year war that has now turned to attack the immune systems of the public. Here are 9 reasons why pasteurization destroys the nutritional and enzymatic value of milk and why you need to avoid it.

Raw milk contains vast amounts of nutrients including beneficial bacteria such as lactobacillus acidolphilus, vitamins and enzymes, and only a very modest source of calcium (if left unpasteurized). (more…)

Study Shows Dairy Calcium May Play Role In Reducing Milkfat Absorption

The unique nutrient combination of calcium and milkfat present in dairy may play a key role in reducing fat absorption and may have the unique ability to maintain good cholesterol (HDL) while minimizing any increase in bad cholesterol (LDL). This is according to an article just published in the February issue of the British Journal of Nutrition. (more…)

Is Milk Making You Sick? The Modern Dangers of Milk You Must Be Aware Of

Why Milk from Certain Breeds of Cattle Is Toxic

In 2007, Dr. Keith Woodford wrote a book called Devil in the Milk. In this text, he explains exactly why milk from certain cows is far more toxic in the body than milk from ancient breeds of cattle.

Dr. Woodford is a Professor of Farm Management and Agribusiness at Lincoln University in New Zealand. In his book, he discusses the dangers of certain forms of casein in milk versus others. As you may expect, because dairy is such a large industry worldwide, Dr. Woodford has received a great deal of grief and badgering through the press for voicing his concerns about what he calls the “milk devil.” (more…)

Drink milk get breast cancer?

By Dr. Mercola

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. If you’re a woman, your chance of getting breast cancer in your lifetime is about one in eight.

Researchers at a breast cancer conference stated that up to one-third of breast cancers could be avoided by making different lifestyle choices, such as the foods you choose to eat.

There is one food you may be surprised to learn, that is directly linked to breast cancer—and that is pasteurized dairy in the form of milk or milk products. (more…)

Is Dairy Healthy? The Whole Story – Part 3

Pasteurization – The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

I am going to assume that you all know that pasteurization is the method by which milk is heated to destroy bacteria that may cause harm, as I am not going to get into technicalities of what it is and the different techniques available. Anyway, it does seem all well and good right? It destroys harmful bacteria, making contamination almost impossible.  Is it really all it is cracked up to be, though? (more…)

Reverse osteoporosis – one of seven reasons why you should learn about lactoferrin

An old Ayurvedic (ancient Indian medicine) proverb says: “When diet is wrong, medicine is of no use; when diet is correct, medicine is of no need.” It’s tragically ironic that one of nature’s most medicinal foods is under attack – pure raw milk. But one of its most magical ingredients, lactoferrin, is now available in FDA approved supplement form. (more…)

Those Pathogens, What You Should Know

Remarks delivered at the Third International Raw Milk Symposium, May 7, 2011, Bloomington, Minnesota. See also Dr. Beals PowerPoint presentation from this event.

I wish to begin by saying that the real discussion of food, including raw milk, should focus on the undeniable values and benefits for our development and sustained health. Sally Fallon Morell has talked about those in her presentation, and my role here is to focus on the risk aspects, which are controversial. (more…)
