Cow’s Milk is Intended for Baby Cows

So why then are we fed the lie from a very early age that humans benefit from drinking cow’s milk and it is in fact a good supply of calcium?  When what’s actually true is that not only is cow’s milk not intended for human consumption but that it has to pumped full of antibiotics and chemicals in order for you to be able to drink it at all.

The amount of calcium in cows milk is negligible at best.  According to USA Today, more than 60 percent of adults are lactose intolerant, a condition caused because the body’s digestive system cannot break down the fat in the milk and causes cramping, gas and diarrhea.  

There are several milk alternatives on the market today including Soy, Rice, Almond and Coconut milk.  So the next time you want to eat a bowl of hot or cold cereal or simply add a little cream to your coffee or tea; reach for one of the many milk alternatives and skip the side of gas and bloating side effects.
