dairy

Forget what you’ve been told about being healthy

Think about everything that you have been told about nutrition from meat and dairy. Dairy is good for strong bones, meat has all the protein you need, yogurt is good for digestion, low fat dairy will help you lose weight. Now forget it all. Seriously, all of it.

Casein is a protein found in milk and cheese. It is also widely used as a supplement in bodybuilding. What many people don’t know is that casein has been scientifically proven to promote the growth of cancer. T. Colin Campbell conducted the largest nutrition study ever using a known toxin called Aflotoxin and casein (Alfotoxin has been known to cause cancer). Two groups of rats were given the same amount of Aflotoxin but different amounts of casein. One group received 20% of their diet from animal based protein (casein) while the other only 5%. Surprisingly, 100% of the rats receiving the higher protein diet developed cancerous cell growth while NONE of the rats in the other group developed these.  But that’s not all. Campbell  and his colleagues were able to then turn the cancer “on and off” by changing the rats’ casein intake. That is incredible!

It goes without saying that “The China Study” is an amazing book and a must read for anyone wanting a healthy lifestyle free of disease. Dr. Campbell speaks about reversing many cancers, curing diabetes, lowering your risk of heart disease, losing weight, increasing energy, avoiding premature death, and many more benefits to a whole food plant based diet. Worried about calcium, protein, and other nutrients? They can ALL be found in their perfect form in plants. I will have a follow up post about this so please check back.

Aside from these findings, let’s use our common sense to think this through. Do you consume you’re mother’s milk at the age of 30? Or even 6? I didn’t think so. So why would you consume milk from a cow that has been injected with hormones? Would you eat your dog? NO! So why eat any other animal?? Because it tastes good? Get a grip! Do you live to eat or do you eat to live? I urge you to do just a tiny bit of research on the subject that you will find that what you have been told you’re whole life about nutrition may be untrue. It’s all about the benjamins. The USDA and the FDA can be bought. Dairy and meat industries have some of the strongest lobbyists in the country. They do a hell of a good job marketing to your family. Don’t believe everything you’re told. You don’t even have to believe what I am telling you. I encourage you to do the research and see for your self.

The following is taken directly from TheChinaStudy.com :

The research project culminated in a 20-year partnership of Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine, a survey of diseases and lifestyle factors in rural China and Taiwan. More commonly known as the China Study, “this project eventually produced more than 8000 statistically significant associations between various dietary factors and disease.” The findings? “People who ate the most animal-based foods got the most chronic disease … People who ate the most plant-based foods were the healthiest and tended to avoid chronic disease. These results could not be ignored,” said Dr. Campbell.”

Crazy, unsexy meat and dairy

Kris Carr was diagnosed with cancer at barely 30 years old. Her cancer was untreatable. Think about it, you’re just minding your won business living life. All of a sudden Gd decks you to the floor. Unwilling to let cancer beat her, Kris embarked on a journey of nutrition, spirituality, and love. Her story is inspiring, courageous, and nothing short of amazing. I highly recommend her books and DVDs. See bottom of post for links. Kris’ book “Crazy Sexy Diet” is a game changer.

Kris was able to treat her cancer by making lifestyle changes through nutrition, exercise, meditation, and more. She goes into a lot of detail about why humans should be eating a plant based diet and not the American diet (fast food, processed foods, meat, dairy, sugar, trans fats). I will devote this particular post to meat and dairy (and how yucky they are).

Compassion Over Kiilling

Here are some of the facts (from ‘Crazy Sexy Diet’)

– Although your ancestors may have ate meat back in the day it’s not the same today since we ate much larger portions, more frequently, and more “diseaseridden” farms! Plants were mostly gathered for meals.


– Our intestines are 26″ long. Carnivores’ intestines are much shorter. The animal therefore gets digested faster. But for us, it takes much longer (think dead animal in 98.6 degrees) YECH!


– We only really need .36 grams of protein her body pound which can be easily reached from plant based foods (black beans, chickpeas, kidney beans, lentils,etc.)

– “[Dairy] industry executives become government regulators, then become industry executives again, like one big revolving door swirling with crazy money.”This means, money becomes more important than our health.

– The China Study. Read it. It makes a direct link from protein found in animal  products (casein) to CANCER. Plant proteins were found to have enough power to turn cancer on or off!! AMAZING! But you probably didn’t hear about it because the meat and dairy industry’s propaganda was louder.

– Links to dairy: Crohn’s disease, kidney stones, eczema, allergies, asthma, arthritis, inflammation, pimples, stomach pain, gas, and bloating. That’s a long ass list and I’m sure there’s more.

– Animals are injected with hormones, steroids, and other drugs. Even that milk or cheese has hormones in it. “In the United States, dairy products account for 60 to 80 percent of estrogens consumed.” This is due to the excessive estrogen a cow produces when her body is tricked into being pregnant all the time.

– Effects of dairy in women: earlier puberty, more menstrual cycles, higher risk of ovarian and breast cancer later in life.
– Effects of dairy in men: estrogen causes man boobs, delayed emotional maturity, and possibly a lower sperm count.
– Cooking meat at high (grill, broiler, fryer) heats increases cancer inducing carcinogens.

This is just the beginning. I haven’t even gotten into animal cruelty. And that’s a doozy. I will let you get into that one yourself if you are interested. Here are some awesome resources. I highly recommend doing your research on this. We are talking about the difference between life and death for us and our children.
