We stopped drinking cow milk years ago for several reasons, most of which is because milk is designed to make a calf into a cow. There are no other animals in nature that continue to drink their mother's milk beyond the "baby-stage." much less drink the milk of another animal. It doesn't make sense for the milk of an animal to be fed to humans into adulthood. In America, milk production is subsidized by the government and heavily promoted as healthy and suggested to have several servings per day. Cow milk is a major mucus causing agent in the human body which may explain high rates of allergies and sinus issues. I, personally, had sinus issues my entire life and no medications were able to offer relief. About 7 years ago, I decided to go dairy free for 30 days and if at the end of 30 days I didn't feel better, than I would know that I wasn't sensitive to dairy products. About 2 weeks into my project, my sinus issues cleared up and after 30 days I lost over 12 pounds (I wasn't even trying to lose weight). My chubby cheeks suddenly flattened out and I wasn't bloated in my stomach anymore. Along our way to eating dairy free, we've learned to replace cow milk with soy and other non-cow milks. We minimize the amount of cheese we eat. Occasionally we will eat pizza with cheese on it, but now we know our noses will be "stuffy" within an hour of eating dairy products. The only thing I haven't been able to find a non-dairy replacement for is cottage cheese. Not everyone is allergic to dairy products, but a lot more people are, but just don't realize the connection between eating dairy and having a constant stuffy nose or bloated face/stomach. There are many other options to get calcium into one's daily meals such as fresh veggies. Broccoli is a terrific source, but because the broccoli industry isn't subsidized by the government the way milk is, there isn't a massive broccoli campaign. Eating various vegetables and certain seeds will provide a much healthier dose of calcium than cow milk. Food for thought. Warmly, Doreen Lizzie Marie Cuisine feeding body & soul

Occasionally, recommendations are made that children over 2 years old and adults should not drink cow's milk. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Medical Association strongly disagree with this position. I am not a milk drinker, but do certainly appreciate and know the benefits of consuming cheese, curd and such for health and do so. Children NEED to drink milk. Shanti/Mary-Anne

Doreen not true! Milk consumption does not lead to mucus production or occurrence of asthma. The belief has been held for centuries that milk causes mucus formation, although the few studies on this topic have failed to demonstrate any effect of milk on mucus production. Many people confuse the temporary, slight thickening of saliva after drinking milk with mucus. There is no scientific research showing that milk produces mucus in the airways or the throat. It will not worsen cold or asthma symptoms. In fact, drinking lots of fluids when you have a cold is important in speeding up recovery and may do your immune system some good. - Wüthrich, B.

Benefits of Milk for Children. Milk is an exceptional drink. It can make an important contribution to the diets of children and teenagers. Milk is the original fast food? A glass of milk is a quick and nutritious snack for children and teenagers. Milk helps to ensure kids don?t miss out on essential nutrients. A daily glass of semi-skimmed milk provides a six-year-old with all the vitamin B12, around half of the calcium, phosphorus and vitamin B2, about one third of the protein, potassium and iodine and around one tenth of the vitamin A, vitamin B1, niacin, vitamin B6, folate, magnesium and zinc he or she needs each day. Milk is a naturally nutritious drink. The amount of nutrients supplied by milk is high in relation to its calorie content. Milk is therefore a particularly valuable food for children whose requirements for vitamins and minerals are high in relation to their energy needs. A 189ml carton of whole milk (4% fat) or semi-skimmed milk (1.7% fat) contains less fat than popular playground snacks such as a packet of crisps or a chocolate bar. School milk can help to tackle inequalities in diet and health. This is because milk is one of the most nutritionally complete foods. Milk is a nutrient dense food ? it provides substantial amounts of a wide range of essential nutrients in relation to its energy content. A 189ml carton of semi-skimmed milk can provide the following daily vitamin and mineral requirements for a 6 year old: 52% of the calcium 32% of the protein 9% of the vitamin A 11% of the vitamin B1 44% of the vitamin B2 16% of the niacin 13% of the vitamin B6 98% of the vitamin B12 12% of the folate 7% of the vitamin C 29% of the iodine 18% of the magnesium 53% of the phosphorus 27% of the potassium 12% of the zinc 5-6% of his or her daily energy requirement Milk is one of the best sources of calcium. A good supply of calcium is needed during the childhood and teen years in order to build strong bones and help protect against osteoporosis in later life. Milk is a great source of calcium. Although vegetables also contain calcium, to get the same amount of calcium as from one glass of milk, a young person would need to munch their way through more than twelve portions of spinach or more than eight portions of red kidney beans or more than four servings of broccoli. Milk is kind to teeth. Dentists say that milk is one of the few drinks that are safe for teeth between meals. Sugary and acidic drinks such as fizzy drinks, squashes, fruit drinks and fruit juices cause teeth to wear away and decay if they are consumed too often. Milk drinking may help to control body fat and reduce the risk of obesity. Researchers have recently discovered that young children who consume lots of milk and dairy products tend to be leaner than those with lower intakes. Milk is one of the staples of a balanced diet and in Britain the average person consumes about half a pint a day. Milk and dairy products together provide about 55 per cent of the calcium consumed in Britain, 19 per cent of the protein and 27 per cent of the riboflavin (vitamin B2). Besides these important nutrients, milk also contains compounds that have been implicated as anti-carcinogens such as conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and butyric acid. Calcium and calcium-rich foods, such as low-fat dairy products, lower blood pressure and may also reduce your risk of colon cancer. Despite milk's important contribution to the diet, articles often appear in the media casting doubt on its benefits. These doubts are often based on anecdotal information rather than sound, peer-reviewed scientific research but nonetheless once in print these myths spread by word of mouth. Here are the top ten milk myths, which are regularly defended by the Dairy Council. To view the facts click on the myth you are reading. MYTH: Allergy to cows' milk is common in young children FACT: Only two to three per cent of the population are truly allergic to milk. Cows' milk allergy is mainly a condition of infancy and around nine out of ten of those affected grow out of it by the age of three. If anyone has a concern, they should consult a medical doctor and not rely on High Street or mail order allergy tests. It is unwise to exclude dairy products from the diet without specialised advice from a State Registered Dietician. For scientific references please contact The Dairy Council's nutrition team. MYTH: Drinking milk causes calcium to be leached from the body It has been suggested that the consumption of milk and dairy products increases the rate of calcium loss from the body and therefore increases the risk of osteoporosis. Several studies have confirmed that calcium is well absorbed from milk and that much more calcium is absorbed from one glass of milk than from a portion of most vegetable foods. Supporters of the 'calcium leaching' idea bolster their case with statistics to show that osteoporosis is more prevalent in countries where a dairy culture exists, eg northern Europe. However, this can be explained by the fact that countries in the northern hemisphere have a limited number of months each year during which sunlight exposure is sufficiently strong to generate vitamin D synthesis in the skin - vitamin D is necessary for the absorption of calcium. Also, in industrial countries, the general lifestyle tends to be less active and thus osteoporosis tends to be more prevalent. For scientific references please contact The Dairy Council's nutrition team. MYTH: Drinking milk causes excess mucus production FACT: It has been suggested that milk and dairy products increase mucus production, and that avoiding milk will therefore alleviate the respiratory symptoms associated with colds. However, there is no good scientific evidence to support this. In one test, people given flavoured milk and soya drink found no real difference between the two. Milk does tend to leave a slightly filmy coating in the mouth or throat, but this is the result of milk's texture and perhaps a little saliva production but not mucus. For scientific references please contact The Dairy Council's nutrition team. MYTH: Drinking milk is directly linked to cardiovascular disease FACT: Foods such as milk, that provide some fat and for which lower fat alternatives exist, are often singled out when dietary advice is given. This may lead to the assumption that a direct link has been shown between milk intake and heart disease, but this is not the case. Milk contains several components that may actually help protect against heart disease. For scientific references please contact The Dairy Council's nutrition team. MYTH: Drinking soya 'milk' is more healthy than cows' milk FACT: Strictly speaking soya 'milk' is not even milk, it is a drink of plant origin. It is naturally low in calcium, which is why some brands are fortified, and it contains phytate, a strong inhibitor of the absorption of several minerals including iron. Although it is often claimed that soya helps to reduce the rise of cancer, recent studies have indicated that soya could have the opposite effect - and be cancer promoting. The long-term effects of soya consumption by Western populations are at present completely unknown. For scientific references please contact The Dairy Council's nutrition team. MYTH: Lactose intolerance is widespread FACT: Lactose intolerance (an inability to digest the milk sugar, lactose, properly) does not mean that you should avoid all dairy products. On the contrary most lactose maldigesters can tolerate a certain amount of lactose and so can enjoy hard cheese (which is virtually lactose-free), yogurts and small quantities of milk. The gradual reintroduction of dairy products in progressively greater quantities tends to improve your ability to tolerate lactose. For scientific references please contact The Dairy Council's nutrition team. MYTH: Milk is a major contributor to fat intake FACT: On average, whole milk contains 4 per cent fat, semi-skimmed 1.7 per cent and skimmed only 0.1 per cent. The Guideline Daily Amount* for fat intake for women is 70g per day and 95g for men. Milk only supplies around eight percent of the fat in the British diet. Therefore milk is not a major contributor to fat intake. *The Guideline Daily Amounts are official government figures for the predicted daily consumption by an average adult of normal weight eating a diet conforming to Department of Health recommendations. For scientific references please contact The Dairy Council's nutrition team. MYTH: Skimmed milk contains less calcium than whole milk FACT: Calcium is contained in the non-cream portion of milk and so when milk is skimmed all the calcium remains. In fact, pint for pint, skimmed and semi-skimmed contain slightly more than whole. Milk provides almost 40 per cent of the calcium in the British diet. For scientific references please contact The Dairy Council's nutrition team. MYTH: The protein in milk (animal protein) is not good for you FACT: The protein in milk is very good for you, as it is a high quality animal protein. The protein from animal sources, eg milk, eggs and meat, provides all the indispensable amino acids that we cannot make by ourselves. Some studies have also shown that it may help protect against cancer. For scientific references please contact The Dairy Council's nutrition team. MYTH: There is a link between milk consumption and diabetes FACT: It is sometimes suggested that there is a link between the development of Type 1 (or juvenile onset) diabetes and the consumption of cows' milk. It is important to recognise that this is just one of several theories about the cause of diabetes. At present there is no conclusive proof one way or the other. Milk is not the only food that has been linked to diabetes - trials in animals suggest that wheat and soya protein have a greater potential to induce Type 1 diabetes. The Dairy Council recommends breast-feeding for the first few months of an infant's life, cows' milk should not be introduced as a main drink until the child is one year old.

FACT: The fact that 2 - 3 percent of children are allergic to milk makes it the most common food allergy of childhood. Note that 2 - 3 percent is the "allergic" segment, and does not take into account intolerance. FACT: While milk may not leach calcium, the need to drink milk for calcium is grossly overstated. To quote the prestigious Harvard School of Public Health: "In particular, these studies suggest that high calcium intake doesn't actually appear to lower a person's risk for osteoporosis. For example, in the large Harvard studies of male health professionals and female nurses, individuals who drank one glass of milk (or less) per week were at no greater risk of breaking a hip or forearm than were those who drank two or more glasses per week.(2, 3) Other studies have found similar results... in countries such as India, Japan, and Peru where average daily calcium intake is as low as 300 mg/day (less than a third of the US recommendation for adults, ages 19-50), the incidence of bone fractures is quite low." FACT (according to the Harvard School of Public Health): 90 percent of Asians, 70 percent of blacks and Native Americans, and 50 percent of Hispanics are lactose-intolerant, compared to only about 15 percent of people of Northern European descent (remember, at 15 percent, we're still talking more than 1 in 10!) FACT: High levels of galactose, a sugar released by the digestion of lactose in milk, have been studied as possibly damaging to the ovaries and leading to ovarian cancer. Sources: Cramer DW. Lactase persistence and milk consumption as determinants of ovarian cancer risk. Am J Epidemiol 1989; 130:904-10. Cramer DW, Harlow BL, Willett WC, et al. Galactose consumption and metabolism in relation to the risk of ovarian cancer. Lancet 1989; 2:66-71. FACT: A diet high in calcium has been implicated as a potential risk factor for prostate cancer. In a Harvard study of male health professionals, men who drank two or more glasses of milk a day were almost twice as likely to develop advanced prostate cancer as those who didn't drink milk at all. (Giovannucci E, Rimm EB, Wolk A, et al. Calcium and fructose intake in relation to risk of prostate cancer. Cancer Res 1998; 58:442-447.) To summarize, and again quoting from the Harvard School of Public Health: "Currently, there's no good evidence that consuming more than one serving of milk per day in addition to a reasonable diet (which typically provides about 300 milligrams of calcium per day from nondairy sources) will reduce fracture risk. Because of unresolved concerns about the risk of ovarian and prostate cancer, it may be prudent to avoid higher intakes of dairy products." It's great to have the facts all out on the table!
