What's the Skinny on Milk?


The cereal you are having in the morning is total junk. We got into that last week when we discussed carbohydrates breaking down into sugar.

But what about the milk you are pouring over that sugar, uh…cereal?

Do you believe that lower fat milk, like skim milk, is healthier than whole milk?

Well, don’t.

Skim milk (and 1% and even 2%) is, in fact, a highly processed AND toxic food.

The stripping away, or skimming, the fat out of the milk also strips the milk of essential saturated fats, vitamins A, D, K2 and a very important fatty acid called CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), which has been proven to prevent heart disease, Type II Diabetes, and several types of cancer. While skim milk might contain calcium, it is now missing the fat and cholesterol you need to actually assimilate the nutrients!

Powdered non-fat milk is added to improve the taste, along with this improved taste are a toxic load of additional nitrates and oxidized cholesterol which are so harmful to our health.

Then why does the American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, and American Cancer Society all recommend low-fat or non-fat dairy in our diets? This advice is so antiquated it dates back to the 1970s. A lot has changed since then, wouldn’t you agree?

The modern epidemic of heart disease and obesity should not be blamed on eating fat containing foods like whole milk and butter, but on the highly processed junk you are buying in the aisles of your supermarket.

Remember: The closer your food is to it’s natural state will give your body the proper nutrients it needs to thrive.
