The Designed Purpose of Cow's Milk
Why should You avoid dairy and foods containing dairy, such as cheese, milk, butter, ice-cream and yogurt.
When you buy food at a grocery store do you buy food that you like or food that your body is designed to eat? I was reading a book called The Paleo Diet: Food Your Body is Designed to Eat and the following segment about milk, butter, yogurt and cheese became an eye opening experience for me.
"Cow's milk is designed to help calves grow quickly, not for humans to consume throughout their lives, and many believe we lack the digestive enzymes suited to thi stask. In fact, humans are the only species to continue drinking milk past weaning, and adults in most parts of the world do not consume many dairy products. some estimates suggest that as much as three-quarters of the world is lactose-intolerant, to varying degrees, with symptoms including gas, bloating, cramps, indigestion, nausea, diarrhea, and constipation.
"Milk and dairy products are also considered to be acid-producing foods, which upset the acid-alkali balance in the body."
