Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., C.S.S.D., recently wrote an OP-ED piece published in The Hill titled, Got Milk? Why? Levin is director of nutrition education at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM). Growing up on a dairy farm in Minnesota drinking milk and eating butter, ice cream and cheese was went unquestioned. When I weighed 260 pounds cheese and ice cream were daily staples and I couldn’t fathom life without them. “After all, how do you cook vegetables with out cheese?,” was my thought. Today, thanks to Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Michael Greger, Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Colin Campbell, Jeff Novick and many others, the science has been made available to us showing the harmful effects dairy products on our health and the health of our children. And, thanks to weight loss hypnosis I can’t remember the last time I ate a dairy product. I have a huge amount of no desire for milk, ice cream, cheese, butter, yogurt or any other dairy product. I’m no longer dealing with borderline diabetes or high blood pressure. If you are giving milk and other dairy products to your kids, please ask yourself WHY?!
Got Milk? Why?
The Hill, Susan Levin, M.S., R.D., C.S.S.D., June 24, 2014: We found that consuming 35 grams of dairy protein each day, the equivalent of one cup of low-fat mozzarella, increases the risk of prostate cancer by 32 percent. Drinking just two glasses of milk each day increases the risk by 60 percent.
The dairy-cancer connection isn’t new. Harvard researchers found that men who drink two or more glasses of milk daily are almost twice as likely to develop advanced or spreading prostate cancer as those who don’t drink milk. Another study published earlier this year found that diets high in meat and dairy products were linked to a fourfold increase in risk of death from cancer — which means eating a lot of animal-based foods can be just as dangerous as smoking.
We aren’t 100 percent sure why dairy is so harmful, but its high fat content is at least partially to blame. A study of more than 90,000 women found that those whose diets were high in animal fat had a 40 to 50 percent higher risk of breast cancer compared with women who ate the least animal fat.
Why, then, are we taking the opposite approach by exposing children to harmful foods? Pumping carcinogenic dairy products through the lunch line is like enrolling our kids in one giant, unethical experiment, the results of which are already grim.
As it turns out, dairy products are the largest source of this artery-clogging fat in Americans’ diets and one of the top sources of sugar and sodium. Thanks in large part to milk and cheese, one in five school-aged children now has high cholesterol — a precursor to heart disease. A third of children are obese or overweight, and one in three will have diabetes in his or her lifetime.
Children and their families can easily learn weight loss hypnosis to lose weight, change eating preferences and improve their health. And there is a bonus.
