Veteran – Does MILK do a body good?

If you don’t drink milk…where do you get your calcium?

Not having cow’s milk in our home now for almost five years we tend to hear this question a lot.  I understand the beliefs that are behind this question…but it still doesn’t make it any easier for me to hear.  It actually at times makes me mad- that the public is so oblivious when it comes to the nutrition in dairy products that they believe not consuming it does them harm…when the exact opposite is true.

There is so much to say on this topic- it would probably have to be told in more than one blog.  But I thought I would start with some thoughts that LOGICALLY tell us why we shouldn’t drink the milk that comes from a cow.  I will need to do a blog on the scientific reasons later.   These logical thoughts are what I tell my children when they ask about cow’s milk…if they understand them- why shouldn’t the rest of us.

Every health expert out there acknowledges that a diet high in fiber and low in saturated fat and cholesterol is best.  Dairy products are extremely HIGH in fat and cholesterol, and are DEVOID of fiber…the exact opposite.  So why do people still feel the need to eat dairy- CALCIUM.  Where do I get my calcium…the same place a cow does- from PLANTS!  Everything that grows from the ground has calcium in it- in particular our green vegetables.

The Correct Statement is:  GREENS do a body good!
