Cow's milk
Calcium and other vitamins and minerals in milk.
An important part of a healthful diet for people of all ages. 

High calcium may cause more health problem as it may not be going to bones, instead to arteries and other places.
Weight loss

Causes obesity rather in most cases.

Strengthening bones

+ if calcium is deposited in the bones!

Is drinking milk a good way to build strong bones?

Pro arguments (Yes):

High milk and dairy products intake may lead to osteoporosis and fractured bones.

Is drinking milk a good way to build strong bones?

Con (No):

Cardiovascular health


Most likely one of the causes of higher incident of heart diseases.

Oral health



Cancer prevention


Linked to many type of cancers such breasts, testicular and other cancers.

PMS relief

+ due to high estrogen content.

Agree but there are alternative satisfactory methods are avaiable.




Milk is one of the most popular beverages in the United States. We have been told it "does a body good," but some scientific studies have found that contrary to popular belief, drinking milk may do more harm to our bodies than good.

Proponents of milk say calcium and other vitamins and minerals in milk make it an important part of a healthful diet for people of all ages. They argue that milk’s benefits include weight loss, strengthening bones, improved cardiovascular and oral health, cancer prevention, and relief of PMS.

Opponents of milk argue that it contributes to obesity, calcium deficiency, allergies, heart disease, cancer, and other health ailments. They argue that claims regarding milk's benefits are merely advertising campaigns designed to promote dairy sales and that many nutritious alternatives to cow's milk exist.

" Being against cow's milk is equated with being un-American."

50 years ago an average cow produced
                                             2,000 pounds of milk/year
                                             now the the top cows produce 50,000
                                             pounds each/year.
This is achieved by using drugs: 
Hormones (Bovine growth hormone or BGH)
Forced feeding
Specialized breeding
Drugs (BGH and antibiotics) and pesticides are usually come
out in the milk.
                                             is 50 to 70% increase in mastitis treated by antibiotic therapy, and the residues of the
                                             antibiotics appear in the milk.
Because of subsidy, more milk
                                             is produced than can
                                             be consumed.

All cows' milk contains blood.
The USDA allows
                                             milk to contain from
                                             one to one and a half million white blood cells (basically pus cells) per

Milk is a chemical, biological, and
                                             bacterial cocktail. 
Authorities test for
                                             4 of the 82 drugs in dairy cows.
                                             The Milk Industry Foundation's spokesman Jerome Kozak says, "I still
                                             think that milk is the safest product we have."
                                             38% of milk samples in 10 cities were
                                             contaminated with sulfa drugs or other antibiotics. (This

                                             Washington, DC found a 20 percent contamination rate

                                             The FDA data showed 51 percent
                                             of the milk samples showed drug traces.
It seems that cows are keep getting infections around the
udder requiring ointments and antibiotics.
If the cow has
                                             mastitis,there is pus (macrophages) in the milk.

                                             were traced to raw milk.
In England, and Wales where raw milk

                                             Yugoslavia and France. The difference between the highest

                                             increase in the amount of beef and milk used in
                                             Japan and their disease patterns are reflecting this.
                                             The lack of "genetic protection" is seen in
                                             migration studies. Formerly the increase in frequency of
                                             lymphomas in Japanese people was only in those who moved to
                                             the USA.
Cunningham found a highly significant positive correlation
                                             between deaths from lymphomas and beef and dairy ingestion
                                             in the 15 countries analyzed. 
                                             consumption of animal protein may be one co-factor in the

                                             Ovarian cancer--a particularly nasty
                                             tumor--was associated with milk consumption by workers at
                                             Roswell Park Memorial Institute in Buffalo, New York.
                                             Drinking more than one glass of whole milk or equivalent
                                             daily gave a woman a 3.1 times risk over non-milk users.
                                             They felt that the reduced fat milk products helped reduce
                                             the risk. This association has been made repeatedly by
                                             numerous investigators.
                                             Another study from the Harvard Medical

                                             1970s. Again a significant positive correlation is revealed
                                             between ovarian cancer and per capita milk consumption.

                                             drinking whole milk 3 or more times daily had a 2-fold
                                             increase in lung cancer risk when compared to those never

                                             milk daily had a relative risk of 2.49 compared with men who
                                             reported never drinking whole milk the weight of the
                                             evidence appears to favour the hypothesis that animal fat is
                                             related to increased risk of prostate cancer. 
                                             THE BENEFITS?
                                             Preference and taste.
                                             The best few reasons: milk is a source calories,calcium and proteins-
                                             amino acids.
                                             The calcium is intended it to build strong bones
                                             and protect against osteoporosis.
                                             amounts of dairy products actually interfere with calcium
                                             absorption. Secondly, the excess of protein that the milk
                                             provides is a major cause of the osteoporosis problem. 
                                             Dr. H
                                             Egsted in England has been writing for years about the
                                             geographical distribution of osteoporosis. It seems that the
                                             countries with the highest intake of dairy products are
                                             invariably the countries with the most osteoporosis. Dr. Egsted
                                             thought that milk is a cause of osteoporosis.                           given below.
                                             Numerous studies have shown that the level of calcium
                                             ingestion including supplementation has no
                                             effect on the development of osteoporosis. The most
                                             important such article appeared recently in the British
                                             Journal of Medicine.
                                             Another study in the United States actually

                                             women given three 8-ounce glasses of cows' milk per day.
                                             (Am. Journal of Clin. Nutrition, 1985). The effects of
                                             hormone, gender, weight bearing on the axial bones, and in
                                             particular protein intake, are critically important. Another
                                             observation is to note
                                             the absence of any recorded dietary deficiencies of calcium
                                             among people living on a natural diet without milk.
                                             For the key to the osteoporosis riddle,not to look at
                                             calcium but protein. Eskimos have 25% of total calorie intake from protein
                                             protein intake
                                             . They also have a
                                             high calcium intake at 2,500 mg/day. Their osteoporosis is
                                             among the worst in the world.
                                             The other instructive group
                                             are the Bantus of South Africa. They have a 12 percent
                                             protein diet, mostly plant protein, and only 200 to 350
                                             mg/day of calcium, about half our women's intake. The women
                                             have virtually no osteoporosis despite bearing six or more
                                             children and nursing them for prolonged periods! When
                                             African women immigrate to the United States, do they
                                             develop osteoporosis but not quite as
                                             much as Caucasian or Asian women. 
                                             "Well, where do you get your
                                             calcium?" The answer is: "From exactly the same place the
                                             cow gets the calcium, from green things that grow in the
                                             ground," mainly from leafy vegetables. Elephants
                                             and rhinos develop their huge bones (after being weaned) by
                                             eating green leafy plants, so do horses. Carnivorous animals
                                             also do quite nicely without leafy plants. It seems that all
                                             of earth's mammals do well if they live in harmony with
                                             their genetic programming and natural food. Only humans
                                             living an affluent life style have rampant osteoporosis.
                                             several billion humans on this earth who have never seen
                                             cows' milk. osteoporosis should be
                                             prevalent in this huge group. The truth is exactly the opposite. They have far
                                             less than that seen in the countries where dairy products
                                             are commonly consumed. The truly significant determinants of osteoporosis are
                                             grossly excessive protein intakes and lack of weight bearing
                                             on long bones, both taking place over decades. Hormones play
                                             a secondary, but not trivial role in women. Milk is a
                                             deterrent to good bone health.

                                             "make sure you get plenty of good protein".
                                             Milk is fitted right in.
                                             As regards protein, milk is indeed a rich source of protein-

                                             Nearly all Americans eat too much protein.

                                             through 51 years, that is 45 grams per day
                                             for the mythical 60 kilogram adult.
                                             The WHO estimated the need for protein in adults to by
                                             .6g/kilo per day. One can "get by" on 28 to 30 grams
                                             a day if necessary!
                                             45 grams a day is a tiny amount, an
                                             ounce and a half.

                                             have to be animal protein. Vegetable protein is identical

                                             less saturated fat.

Can mother's milk increase intelligence? It seems that it
can. In a remarkable study published in Lancet during 1992

(Vol. 339, p. 261-4), a group of British workers randomly

placed premature infants into two groups. One group received

a proper formula, the other group received human breast

milk. Both fluids were given by stomach tube. These children

were followed up for over 10 years. In intelligence testing,

the human milk children averaged 10 IQ points higher! Well,

why not? Why wouldn't the correct building blocks for the

rapidly maturing and growing brain have a positive effect?
In the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (1982) Ralph
Holman described an infant who developed profound

neurological disease while being nourished by intravenous

fluids only. The fluids used contained only linoleic acid -

just one of the essential fatty acids. When the other, alpha

linoleic acid, was added to the intravenous fluids the

neurological disorders cleared.

Going low-carb? Pick the right proteins
Several large randomized controlled trials — have shown that
low-carb diets are as good as low-fat diets for losing weight, and may even be better.
But how do they fare for long-term health?

Most low-carb diets deliver more protein and fat than “regular” or low-fat diets.
We know there are good and not-so-good fats and carbohydrates.
Could the same hold true for protein sources? If so, then the type of protein that dominates a diet can influence health as much as the kinds and amounts of carbohydrates or fats.

The evidence

Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health have been following 85,000 female nurses and 45,000 male health professionals since the mid-1980s. Every few years, the participants fill out questionnaires detailing what they eat and provide other information on their health. This wealth of data is offering some insight into the long-term effects of different low-carb diets.
In one study, the researchers created scores for each nurse’s intake of protein from red meat, poultry, fish, dairy, eggs, nuts, and beans. The findings:
  • The more protein from red meat, the higher the chances of developing heart disease.
  • Women who averaged two or more servings of red meat a day had a 30% higher risk of developing heart disease than those who had one or fewer servings a day.
  • Replacing one serving of meat with one of nuts reduced the risk by 30%.
In a separate study, the researchers created scores that reflected both
the amount of carbohydrate in the diet and
the main sources of protein.
In the sane study
those with a low-carb diet heavy in animal protein were 23% more likely to have died over 20-plus years of follow-up than those with “regular” diets,
while those following a low-carb diet rich in plant protein were 20% less likely to have died.

Protein sources
Good sources of protein deliver different amounts of saturated fats, carbohydrates, and fiber. Here’s what 3 ounces of different protein sources contain.
Protein (g)
Carbohydrate (g)
Saturated fat (g)
Roasted chicken, white meat
Roasted leg of lamb
Cooked ground beef (85% lean)

Putting it all together

To your body, protein from pork chops looks and acts the same as protein from peanuts.
What’s different is the protein “package” — the fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that invariably come along with protein.
The two Harvard studies add to a growing body of evidence that emphasizing plant protein sources is a better

Ten anti-vegetarian myths

                                             There are meat eaters, vegetarians, and vegans.
                                             Vegetarians drink milk and eat dairy products.
                                             Vegans eat no animal products. By eating animal
                                             flesh or drinking their body fluids, one ingests
                                             their hormones. Vegetarians often drink more
                                             milk and eat more dairy than meat eaters. Vegans
                                             eat no animal hormones.
                                             There are two reasons not to eat animals. Many
                                             people become vegetarians out of compassion to
                                             animals who do not deserve to die in pain by a
                                             human knife.
                                             The second reason, human health, far outweighs
                                             the first. By eating animal products, one shows
                                             no compassion to the human body. By eating dirty
                                             fuel consisting of cholesterol, saturated animal
                                             fat, and relatively large amounts of sulfur-based
                                             amino acids (methionine, homocysteine), one places
                                             considerable stress upon the body's cardiovascular
                                             and immune systems.
                                             Of the two thousand or so emails that I see every
                                             day, I can always rely upon a handful to refer to
                                             one or more so-called anti-vegetarian myths such as:
                                             1) Meat eaters have lower rates of heart disease
                                             than do vegetarians.
                                             2) Meat eating men make for better lovers because
                                             they have higher rates of the male sex hormone.
                                             3) Meat eaters have lower rates of all of the
                                             major diseases than do vegetarians.
                                             4) Vegetarians have higher mortality rates than
                                             meat eaters.
                                             5) A vegetarian diet is not appropriate for a
                                             pregnant woman or nursing mother.
                                             6) Children born to vegetarians are smaller
                                             than children born to meat eaters.
                                             7) Meat eaters obtain more vitamins and nutrients
                                             than vegetarians, because the animals they eat also
                                             consume vegetables.
                                             8) It is a proven fact that vegetarians have higher
                                             rates of heart disease than meat eaters.
                                             9) Meat eaters have lower rates of diabetes than
                                             do vegetarians.
                                             10) Meat eaters have lower rates of breast cancer than
                                             do vegetarians.
