They (the adults) just don't drink their milk out of baby bottles... at least not in public that is-but you don't know what people do behind closed doors. According to the January 2007 issue of CNN Health, approximately 70 percent of adults in the United States drink milk. The adult human is a walking contradiction. He or She may say that they learned from their mothers that were weaned at a certain age, but in most cases, it should be obvious that this is not so, as previously indicated above. Weaning is the process of gradually introducing a mammal infant to what will be an adult diet and at the same time withdrawing the supply of its mother's milk. This process takes place only in mammals, as only mammals produce milk. The infant is considered to be fully weaned once it no longer receives any breast milk or baby bottle substitute. The problem is that anyone can still see children, teens and adults drinking or consuming milk or milk products in some form or fashion even after being "weaned" unquote. They still run the "Got Milk" commercials on television and some print media in virtually all US markets.
As of October 30,2012 (Halloween eve), If the current prices of $3.29, $3.49, $3.99,$4.29, $4.99,$6.12 per gallon does not wean people from cow's milk, then nothing will. I am also skeptical that most people would even began to consider drinking milk from plant, nuts, seeds, and grain sources such as soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk, date milk, rice milk, hemp milk, etc.
I have also noticed that just like salt and sugar, cow's milk is listed as an ingredient in almost every cooked, baked, canned and processed food product in the supermarket. It is even listed as ingredients in skin moisturisers, glue, shampoo, paint and some makeup and cosmetics products.
When drinking cow's milk then you are ingesting LDL cholesterol, bacteria and parasites, Bovine Growth Hormone (BGH a man made synthetic hormone used to increase milk production), antibiotics, cancer causing ingredients such as IGF-1, saturated animal fats, animal proteins, triglycerides, worms, lactose, etc. Here are some more problems associated with drinking cow's milk:
Abdominal Pain from drinking milk
Abdominal pain may occurs when the lining of your stomach becomes irritated from lactose (a kind of sugar) found in cow's milk. The breaking down of lactose may cause stomach irritation and your intestines may cramp. Approximately 60-70 percent of the world's population can not break down the lactose in milk, as a result most people of the world do not consume milk after childhood. Your doctor may recommend over-the-counter medicine to help break down the lactose in the milk. He more than likely will not tell you to stop drinking the milk as his career would be at stake, especially if the news get back to the wrong people.
It is said that the leading allergy next to wheat is milk allergies. This allergy is often misdiagnosed as sinus or respiratory problems, as well as behavioral or bed wetting problems.
Continued drinking of cow's milk can lead to blood anemia. In most cases if you decrease your consumption of cow's milk then your iron levels will likely rise or increase. Drinking milk and taking iron vitamins together as many do will still decrease your iron levels -you will have to discontinue drinking cow's milk altogether or change to plant milk- if you are concerned about your health!
Sinus and Respiratory Problems
Despite what some doctors say, milk does produce and thicken the mucus in the respiratory system. Most chronic sinus sufferers that produce lots of mucus are usually heavy milk drinkers and milk product consumers. Before I became a vegetarian, I used to skip breakfast so that I could eat a half gallon of Blue Bell Buttered Pecan (Just the name will make you hungry) ice cream for lunch. I had Blue Bell ice cream in one hand and a roll of toilet tissue in the other hand because frequently, I had to stop eating this delicious delicacy in order to blow my nose because of the mucus buildup- while I was eating. As you can see, this type of diet contributes immensely to sinus, bronchial and asthma problems -as many of you may already know.
Drinking cold milk, water, juice, beer, etc. can cause coughing, sore and scratchy throat as this interferes with the body's homeostasis or normal functioning. Here is another experience I had. I went to eat at a Chinese buffet with a very dear friend of mine and the thing that I noticed is that even though it was winter time, he drank water with ice in it and was alternating between eating and drinking (that is a no no). I noticed that he did not have a cough until he started drinking the very cold water that probably hit the back of his throat-hence the resulting cough. I did not bring my observation to his attention because some people consider this as meddling and if you talk about the food they eat and how they eat it. They take this very personally even though it may be harmful junk they are eating - Again, ask me how I know! That is partially the reason that I am writing this book/ e-book. My newly adopted motto is "If it don't fit then try not to force it".
But wait a minute! those are the same symptoms as someone having or catching a cold and there are many things that can lead to a cough and runny nose. See if you can be convinced that your cold is caused by an invisible Virus or Bug then who has the advantage you or the person or entity that gave you the information or program as being the gospel truth. So, ever since childhood, when you so-called "catch a cold" or "caught a cold" you have blamed it on an invisible creature that probably does not exist and will continue to do so unless you are miraculously enlightened otherwise. Here is another example: eating naturally diseased meats such as pork has lots of bacteria and germs that can lead to the consumer having flu like symptoms such as coughing up thick green, yellow or brown phlegm, sneezing, running nose, headaches, pain when breathing, soreness and stiffness in the body (even soreness when moving the eyes left or right in their sockets). So then what is the flu?, if eating bacteria infested meats can give you flu like symptoms? I think I will stop right here for now but I may pick up this topic in a later writing.
Here are some ways to prevent and soothe throat mucus:
*Inhale steam from a tub of boiling water or hot shower to loosen mucus in the throat and sinus congestion.
*Drink water daily to loosen phlegm and thin mucus, it is also good for your overall health and well being.
*Blow your nose frequently to prevent mucus from draining into your throat.
*Gargle regularly with warm water and salt.
*Add a few drops of eucalyptus oil or chest rub to a vaporizer to loosen mucus and relieve congestion.
*Avoid eating foods such as dairy products, meat or fried foods that increase phlegm and mucus production.
*Drink hot liquids such as herbal or green tea to moisten the airways and break up mucus.
*Add a teaspoon of turmeric to half a glass of herbal tea as turmeric helps fight infection.
*Use a humidifier or vaporizer in your bedroom at night to thin the mucus, this helps to moisten the air and is particularly helpful during the winter.
*Limit exposure to irritants such as household cleaners, pollution, paint fumes, chemicals, cigarette smoke or strong synthetic perfumes.
*Add a few drops of eucalyptus oil to a vaporizer to loosen mucus and phlegm to relieve congestion.
*Stop smoking as it irritates the throat and worsens respiratory conditions. Try to avoid second hand smoke.
*Eat spicy foods such as horseradish, jalapeno, cayenne or hot chili peppers to loosen mucus.
HARD ON THE KIDNEYS
Many people with severe kidney problems are instructed to cut out milk products. It is not good for the kidneys in anybody. Despite all the negative side effects of consuming milk, it is still listed as part of one of the four basic food groups and is ironically the base of the majority of baby formulas and health drinks. The body does need calcium but a baby should drink it's mother's milk or if breast feeding is not possible then goats milk is the next best thing if you just have to have animal's milk. (a four stomached mammal such as a cow should never donate milk to a one stomached human) and any child over two years old should get this calcium out of vegetation just as grazing animals do.
