Milk does a Body Good. Remember that commercial?
Well it’s almost true.
The processing and ultra-heating kill all the good stuff. Combined with the mass-producing that has the cows in dirty, dangerous and unsanitary conditions.
There needs to be a change in our food system.
However, there are still groups of milk producers that provide clean, healthy, life promoting milk. You may have heard of Raw Milk, currently in New Jersey, illegal to sell, which baffles the mind, is available to get if you are willing to travel.
Perhaps in your area you can get it easily, let’s all take action towards voicing the sentiments of the unbiased research that demonstrates the less we interfere with nature the better quality the food.
Here’s another study supporting the benefits of consuming Raw Milk.
Raw Milk Can Reduce Asthma and Allergies
Children who drank raw milk had a 30 percent lower risk of respiratory infections and fever.
School-aged children who drank raw milk were 41 percent less likely to develop asthma and about 50 percent less likely to develop hay fever.
Breast-feeding is protective against respiratory infections in early life. Given the co-evolutionary adaptations of humans and cattle, bovine milk might exert similar anti-infective effects in human infants.
To study effects of consumption of raw and processed cow’s milk on common infections in infants.
The PASTURE birth cohort followed 983 infants from rural areas in Austria, Finland, France, Germany, and Switzerland, for the first year of life, covering 37,306 person-weeks. Consumption of different types of cow’s milk and occurrence of rhinitis, respiratory tract infections, otitis, and fever were assessed by weekly health diaries. C-reactive protein levels were assessed using blood samples taken at 12 months.
When contrasted with ultra-heat treated milk, raw milk consumption was inversely associated with occurrence of rhinitis (adjusted odds ratio from longitudinal models [95% CI]: 0.71 [0.54-0.94]), respiratory tract infections (0.77 [0.59-0.99]), otitis (0.14 [0.05-0.42]), and fever (0.69 [0.47-1.01]). Boiled farm milk showed similar but weaker associations. Industrially processed pasteurized milk was inversely associated with fever. Raw farm milk consumption was inversely associated with C-reactive protein levels at 12 months (geometric means ratio [95% CI]: 0.66 [0.45-0.98]).
Early life consumption of raw cow’s milk reduced the risk of manifest respiratory infections and fever by about 30%. If the health hazards of raw milk could be overcome, the public health impact of minimally processed but pathogen-free milk might be enormous, given the high prevalence of respiratory infections in the first year of life and the associated direct and indirect costs.
Taking a brief look at the above chart, from Dr. Axe’s Raw Milk Benefits and see for yourself the amazing benefits of stepping away from chemical-laden, nutrient deficient milk typically found at most stores to Raw Milk.
