  • Milk: Good or Bad for you?

    This is an excerpt from an email I received. The source stated was Johns Hopkins:

    b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus.
    By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soya milk cancer cells are being starved.
    I have never been a fan of milk (I hate it). And I knew full fat milk was probably not the best for everyone. But is milk so bad that no one should drink it? Also found this interesting site: http://www.notmilk.com/ which basically says exactly that it needs to be avoided.

    Got Milk? Advertising hype?

      Every thing in the world has a tendency to be good and bad for us at the same time. Farmers apply pesticides to their crops to keep pests away, should we stop eating vegtables? Should we stop drinking juices? Should we stop eating fruit? Studies have also shown that chocolate and wine can be bad and good for you. Should we keep consuming them or no?

      My point being that everything will have it's pro's and con's. But according to the food pyramid, in order to live a healthy lifestyle, we should consume a healthy amount of dairy products, which are all made with milk. So, in my opinion, I don't think it is anymore dangerous than some of the other things we consume and digest .

        Probably...

        But unless it is in a cup of coffee (PS Latte, anyone?), then I am still not drinking it. Blech.

          You would really want to get the source of this quote, and validate it, and then see if there is scientifically based, peer-reviewed research. That is the only way to know if it belongs in a text book, or on Snopes.com.

              Oh no, that is not what I meant, sorry!


              I just meant that sometimes vague on-line sources can be tricky.

              Sorry for the confusion!

                            No, you're absolutely wrong. I've never done such a thing - and been caught.

                              I thank all the dairy cows...past, present, and future....a big moo-out to them...thank you for milk!


                              (and btw, everything is bad for you to eat & drink these days...)


                              Though I won't recommend trying to drinking a whole gallon of milk at once.
