IS THE DAIRY INDUSTRY CONNING US?

REPLACE DAIRY PRODUCTS WITH GREENS FOR CALCIUM


Why is it that we are encouraged to drink milk?

Because of its calcium right?

Well, where do cows get their food from?

The grass!  The grass is green and it contains huge
amounts of calcium, as well as the other alkalizing
minerals.

We have been brainwashed into believing that cow's
milk and dairy are essential for us to grow big and
strong.I don'tthink is right especially when you
consider the following...

Cow's milk provides 118 mg of calcium/100 g.
The daily recommended intake (depending on the authority)
is between 800 - 1200 mg of calcium per day.

Therefore, to meet daily requirements, and assuming that
dairy is a balanced source of calcium (which it is not),
you would need toconsume at minimum 0.88 - 1.22 liters
of 2% milk per day(considering 1 g of 2% milk = 1.1 ml)!
 That's four to five 250 ml cups
of milk per day.  That's insane!

Dairy is the most common food allergen in the world!
After the age of 2, our body no longer produces the
enzyme lactase to breakdown lactose (sugar in dairy).
This leads to a myriad ofproblems including bloating,
gas, indigestion, skin problems
(such as eczema), and excess mucus production.

There is an alternative to dairy however
(and it's not soy milk).

DOES THIS MEAN THAT WE SHOULD ALL CONSUME MORE GREENS?
