The untold dangers of eating dairy.
As more people are taking up vegetarianism, a huge number of people still eat plenty of dairy products, but how bad are they for your health?
Cows milk is still an incredibly popular dairy product, despite constant calls over the safety.
Many people are actually allergic to dairy, as most people are born with a dairy intolerance and people suffer with dairy allergies for years without realizing it is cows milk that is making them sick.
Dairy is notoriously easy to get wrong. If stored at the wrong temperatures, it can go from safe to deadly in just a matter of minutes.
Just last year Blue Bell Creamery were found guilty of inadvertently killing three people and poisoning 10 people with listeria. They were only fined a mere $175,000 for this crime.
Cows milk is bleached and is often found when tested to contain traces of blood and pus, the bleach is then added to hide the discoloration of the milk.
Aside from these foreign bodies that make their way into your milk, the very health of the cow’s milk that you are drinking can be called into question.
The dairy farming industry is huge, and the need for as many cows as possible to be in the process is great.
Cows are pumped with hormones to keep them in the production of as much milk as possible, and they are even fed on sub-standard food.
It is now common practice for cows to be fed on highly processed GMO corn, which has been linked with the onset of many diseases and aslo cancer.
In Vermont, many dairy farms are atrazine-based, this chemical is has been linked to estrogen overproduction, the feminizing of males, reproductive problems, several cancers and birth defects.
There are so many dairy alternatives out there, and a huge range of milks including soya, almond and coconut that no cows were harm during the making.
So the real question is: Will you continue supporting the corrupt, toxic and unsustainable food system that Monsanto and its industry shills and profit-hungry lackeys have painstakingly crafted?
It is down to us, as consumers, to break Monsanto’s tight hold on our food supply. The good news is that the tide is turning.
As consumers worldwide become increasingly aware of the problems linked to GE crops and the toxic chemicals and pesticides used on them, more and more people are proactively refusing to eat these foods. There’s also strong growth in the global organic and grass fed sectors. This just proves one thing: We can make a difference if we steadily work toward the same goal.
One of the best things you can do is to buy your foods from a local farmer who runs a small business and uses diverse methods that promote regenerative agriculture. You can also join a community supported agriculture (CSA) program, where you can buy a “share” of the vegetables produced by the farm, so that you get a regular supply of fresh food. I believe that joining a CSA is a powerful investment not only in your own health, but in that of your local community and economy as well.
In addition, you should also adopt preventive strategies that can help reduce the toxic chemical pollution that assaults your body.
Monsanto and its allies want you to think that they control everything, but they do not. It’s you, the masses, who hold the power in your hands. Let’s all work together to topple the biotech industry’s house of cards. Remember — it all starts with shopping smart and making the best food purchases for you and your family.
