Pregnant Mom’s – Did you know that eating yogurt puts your baby at risk for asthma? I had the privilege of hearing Dr. Neal Barnard last Saturday and he talked about that there are so many health reasons to not eat any dairy products. Yet, yogurt is marketed and thought of by many as “healthy”. All dairy products, (non fat milk, kefir, yogurt, butter, cheese, cottage cheese) can cause problems early in life such as infections, asthma, eczema, type 1 diabetes, cancers including leukemia and lymphomas. Bottle fed babies have 2 – 4 times higher risk of crib death, 60 times more chance of that child developing pneumonia within the first 3 months of life, 10 – 12 times greater risk of going to the hospital in the first year of life, reduced intelligence – IQ is decreased and increased potential for behavioral speech difficulties. As an adult, there is a greater risk of heart disease, obesity, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, food allergies, ulcerative colitis and Chron’s disease. Moms, you can help fight childhood obesity and other diseases by keeping dairy products out of your home.
Mom’s Yogurt Puts Baby at Risk for Asthma
Pregnant women who eat yogurt may put their future children at risk of developing asthma, according to recent research in Denmark. Consuming low-fat yogurt while pregnant is directly linked to the development of childhood asthma and hay fever, and full-fat yogurt is associated with adolescent hay fever. Consuming low-fat yogurt was associated with a 60 percent increase in asthma and an 80 percent increase in hay fever, compared with zero consumption of low-fat yogurt. The 61,912 women who completed the food questionnaire were part of the Danish National Birth Cohort.
Changing your eating habits and the eating habits of your family may seem daunting. Dr. Neal Barnard and the Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine (PCRM) has excellent free resources for you.
