Nothing new for many of our readers, but we have been led astray about the dangers of milk and dairy products. Put the blame on our public health authorities and the USDA dietary guidelines—a deceptive marketing campaign for the multinational food corporations carried out by doctors and dieticians. Although a long-term study just released shows eating lots of dairy has nothing to do with heart attacks, you can be sure it will not change the advertisements and doctor’s advice to eat low-fat or non-fat dairy products and get on a statin drug. As with all the other studies, it will be suppressed as it opposes the goals of the food and medical industries.
A newly published analysis of 3630 Costa Rica adults over a ten-year period found that their levels of dairy consumption had nothing to do statistically with their risk of a heart attack. Some ate one and one-third pounds of cheese, butter and milk each day. (The actual published study in the journal Nutrition, Metabolism and Cardiovascular Diseases is available for a fee.)
Researchers at Brown University hypothesized that other nutrients in dairy products are protective against heart disease. The beneficial nutrients are said include calcium, vitamin D, potassium, magnesium and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).
Our article Skim Milk may be making you fat and sick last week is already the No. 1 post of the year. It tells how skim milk can help make you fat and raise bad cholesterol.
Sally Fallon-Morrell and the real milk campaign at The Weston A. Price Foundation have led the charge on the virtues of “dangerous” full-fat raw milk for over 15 years. Their real dietary guidelines cover the benefits of fat, cholesterol and dairy products:
Authorities justify these restrictions of nutritious foods by claiming that fat, especially saturated fat, results in weight gain. Yet a recent study from Sweden found that a higher intake of fats, including saturated fats, in childhood resulted in lower body weight; children on reduced fat diets had higher body mass and greater insulin resistance. Furthermore, in a study of Swedish adults, consumption of whole fat milk and cheese was linked to lower weight gain; and dairy fat was not linked with weight gain in a longitudinal study of adolescents.
You will notice that dairy industry mantra boils down to this: natural, whole milk designed by the Creator is “hazardous” but highly-processed and separated milk-based products are improved by Man and are “healthier.” Americans are reaping the consequences of trusting in those who profit from their advertised recommendations.
