Milk and milk products

 We have been enjoying drinking milk and eating milk products for ages but the fact remains  that  Cow’s milk is suited to the nutritional needs of calves.
Calves   gain so much  of weight  in a matter of few  months by drinking only milk.

Thus it is not a surprise that drinking cow’s milk leads  to Obesity

Lot of people complain of  bloating, discomfort and gas after milk intake, they should try to stop  milk intake, the symptoms will  settle  as it may be due to lactose intolerance .
Studies have shown that excessive intake of milk leads to prostate cancer in men and ovarian cancer in females.
A caution for our adolescent boys and girls  excessive milk intake can lead to increased prevalence and severity of acne.


The other side of the coin is that  unless we have cow at  our home , we are never sure about quality of    Milk we get from the  market.
I came across multiple article highlighting adulteration in milk ranging from coloring matter to detergents which may be a tip of the iceberg  due to non existent quality control in  most of the countries in the world.
Cows are fed with antibiotics and other drugs  for a higher  yield of milk which finally go to humans leading to antibiotic resistance, we often encounter.
Try to replace  morning tea and lipton tea  with green tea / Qahwa , add cinnamon instead of  sugar. Start your day with this  excellent anti-oxident drink
This will go  a long way to combat obesity , atherosclerosis hence heart diseases strokes and a myriad of illnesses

To conclude   beyond 40 years of age or better   earlier  we should avoid excessive intake of  milk and  milk products .Those who have lactose intolerance must identify it and avoid it completely.
Friends the only way we can live happily and healthily is by PREVENTION what Louis Pasteur aptly mentioned  hundreds of years ago ,
“when meditating over a  disease I never think of finding a remedy for it, but, instead , a means of preventing it’.
