Are dairy products (i.e., milk, cheese) good for your health? According to John A. McDougall, dairy products are not as healthy as they claim, especially conventional dairy products. The informational video in this article explains why conventional diary products are health hazards and how they are linked to chronic health conditions, such as chronic fatigue, atherosclerosis, anemia, constipation, degenerative disease, cancer, allergies, infection, food poisoning, etc.
Here are some shocking facts about dairy products that should make you think twice about eating or drinking dairy products:
- Cow’s milk contains “pus” which is created when white blood cells fight infections caused by certain harmful microorganisms.
- Many dairy cattle are infected with bovine immunodeficiency viruses (BIV) and bovine leukemia viruses (BLV). According to John A. McDougall, BIV is also known as Bovine AIDS viruses. “In the United States, results show that, on average, 40% of beef herds and 64% of dairy herds are infected with BIV and 89% of dairy herds infected with BLV.”
- A study done on breast cancer found that “10 of 23 human breast cancer specimens were infected with BLV.”
- Conventional cow’s milk is one of the causes of allergies and has been linked to diabetes.
- In certain places, dead cows are still being used as feed for cattle. Many of these cattle are used to produce milk.
- Conventional cow’s milk does a poor job of strengthening bones, because it lacks the right nutrients to help the body to absorb and utilize calcium.
- Conventional cow’s milk has been linked to serious gastrointestinal disorders, neurodegenerative disease (i.e., Parkinson’s), heart disease, and brain disease.
