Milk, Does your body good?

In yesterdays video, Robb mentioned one downfall of dairy in that it releases more insulin than glucagon which spikes blood sugar levels and can cause inflammation throughout the body. Another problem with dairy is that most of what we drink/eat today is pasteurized. Pasteurization kills off the enzymes contained in milk by a heating process. However, it was these enzymes that allowed our bodies to easily digest the milk and the absence of which is the reason why you are seeing more and more people with dairy sensitivities. Heres a few other facts about pasteurization: --Heat alters milks amino acids, lysine and tyrosine, making the whole complex of proteins less available. --Vitamin C loss on pasteurization usually exceeds 50% & loss of water soluble vitamins can run as high as 80%, B12 is totally destroyed --Pasteurization reduces the availability of milks mineral components such as calcium, chloride, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and sulphur as well as many trace minerals. --Pasteurization alters lactose making it more readably absorbable. This and the fact that pasteurized milk puts unnecessary strain on the pancreas to produce digestive enzymes may explain why milk consumption in civilized society has been linked with diabetes. --Pasteurization destroys enzymes in milk that help the body assimilate all body building factors including casein. --After pasteurization, chemicals may be added to suppress color and restore taste. Synthetic vitamin D2 or D3 is added-the former is toxic and has been linked to heart disease. So you are not necessarily doing you body as much good as you think by drinking milk. However, if you insist on drinking milk, please make sure it is not reduced fat milk. To make reduced fat milk (skim, 1%, 2%...) they heat the milk to such an extreme that it becomes powdered which they then use to make the reduced fat milk products. However, by heating the milk to such an extreme, it changes the chemical properties of it and turns what was good fat and good cholesterol into damaged cholesterol which can promote both injury to the arterial cells as well as pathological buildup of plaque in the arteries. Do you have recurrent ear infections? If so, definitely stay away from milk as this is a tell tale sign of an allergy to cows milk.
