Is milk healthy?
So, what do you think, is milk healthy? I grew up on a dairy farm and of course all through school there were those Dairy and Beef propaganda posters on the wall marketing their health benefits.
I am so thankful that 28 years ago I began to delve into the more than 100 years of research that prove and milk and beef are not healthy.
And now, Canada has bucked it’s Dairy Council and proposed adding warning labels to products high in saturated fat, sodium, and sugars, which includes dairy products.
I am so excited that Canada has taken steps and moved closer to healthy nutrition. Unfortunately, they still label protein as a food group (it is not!). I can only hope that the day when protein is recognized as a nutrient and is found in oat meal, peas, kale, beans, avocados, bananas ….
If you think you can’t live without your cheese, butter, ice cream, yogurt and milk, hypnosis help is here for you.

- There was special emphasis on choosing the plant-based proteins (beans, lentils, nuts, etc) over the animal-based proteins (dairy and meats)

Is milk healthy? Canada’s new food guide says not necessarily
Canada has released a new food guide, and one thing is noticeably missing – a daily dose of dairy.
The guide does away with food groups entirely, and instead encourages people to eat a variety of unprocessed foods.
Canada’s food guide provides Canadians with nutritional advice for optimal health.
The latest edition does away with many standard elements, like food groups, serving sizes and the recommendation that 100% fruit juice can substitute whole fruits.
Canada Just Dropped Dairy From Its 2019 Nutrition Guide
Health Canada’s 2019 food guide sees some major changes from the 2017 version, with dairy almost scrapped entirely and a bigger focus on plant-based food.
Consuming dairy is linked with a wide range of health problems, most commonly lactose intolerance, which affects 65 percent of the world’s population. Dairy is also linked to high cholesterol and high blood pressure and studies have suggested that consuming it regularly puts people at a higher risk of developing cancer and diabetes. Across the nation, plant-based options have steadily been becoming more mainstream – even Tim Hortons, Canada’s largest quick-service chain, began offering soy milk in December 2014.
