Raw milk not good for health

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says that raw milk is dangerous, possibly carrying deadly pathogens such as campolybacter, salmonella and E. coli.
But supporters of raw milk say "it is the safest milk in the world" (source: Ron Schmid, author of "The Untold Story of Milk").  Selling raw milk for human consumption is legal in 28 US states, according to the Weston A. Price Foundation, a raw milk advocacy group based in Washington, D.C. Five states allow raw milk for animal consumption, a loophole that raw milk fans exploit. In some of the remaining states, including Colorado, Virginia and Wisconsin, raw milk is available through cow-share programs.
Clearly, if raw milk is free from disease, then yes, it is better than pasteurized milk.  This is so because the pasteurization process makes milk protein indigestible and harmful to health.  Also the homogenization process (all pasteurized milk is homogenized)  is very harmful for reasons explained in The Milk Imperative.
The point though is that raw milk, whether or not disease ridden, is very harmful to consume for many reasons:  just like regular commercial milk, raw milk causes mucus congestion, illness, obesity, osteoporosis, cancer, and many other ailments.  This is supported by all the latest medical research as explained in The Milk Imperative.  For a free synopsis go to Osteoporosis Can Be Prevented.

Estrogen does not increase bone density

Scientists from the University of St. Andrews in Scotland have demonstrated that women in their late teens and early 20’s with higher levels of estrogen have more attractive faces.  The reason is that estrogen inhibits bone growth during puberty. This is further evidence that estrogen acts to slow down bone grown and bone turnover, thus preserving valuable bone-making cells.  (Source: Miriam Law Smith, et al, Univ. of St. Andrews, Scotland, News Release 20 Nov. 2005). 

This research shows that bone density is protected when bone turnover is slowed down.  Unfortunately, bone turnover is increase when you consume dairy milk, and this in turn erodes valuable bone-making cells, leading to osteoporosis.

Misleading announcement regarding vitamin D


ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Medical Women Asociation (AMWA) calls for an increase in currently recommended vitamin D intake.  According to research most people are not getting the recommended intake of vitamin D. According to the AMWA Vitamin D deficiency has often been linked to osteoporosis, a condition that affects more than 10 million Americans and threatens 34 million others. A Report of the Surgeon General (2004) listed vitamin D, along with calcium and physical activity, as the three key elements to maintaining optimal bone health. Based on relevant clinical practice experience and involvement in various research that highlights the role of vitamin D in bone health, the panel concluded that it is of paramount importance that vitamin D be considered in patients being treated for osteoporosis and other bone diseases.

This is a disgraceful announcement that is not only erroneous but downright harmful to people’s health.  The ‘research’ behind this report was funded by one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies (namely Merk) who have a vested interest in selling vitamin D and calcium supplements.  The truth is that taking vitamin D and calcium supplements does not protect against osteoporosis – on the contrary, such supplements increase the risk of osteoporosis.  Unfortunately the AMWA has been hoodwinked and misled into making an announcement that is harmful to women’s health.  All the latest peer-reviewed research is saying that taking vitamin D and calcium supplements actually increases the risk of osteoporosis.  For proof see the free ebook  Osteoporosis Can Be Prevented.

Exercise can cause osteoporosis

Did you know that 6 million of the 28 million Americans who have osteoporosis are men?  Unlike many other diseases, the incidence of osteoporosis is increasing rather than decreasing.  It is now generally recognized that the biggest cause of osteoporosis is the diet.  Unfortunately many health professionals still think that exercise (or lack of it) is a major cause.  This is not so.  Confusion arises because exercise is seen to increase bone density, but new research shows that by increasing bone density through exercise this actually increases the risk of osteoporosis in the long term.  For the evidence and a full explanation go to or get this free ebook: Osteoporosis Can Be Prevented.

The silent killer

If asked to list some of the deadliest human ailments you might not immediately think of osteoporosis. You might not think of the bone-depleting condition at all. But you might be surprised to find out that deaths due to osteoporosis exceed those from certain cancers. Even more disturbing is that there is a high level of ignorance about the disease among lay people and physicians, an ignorance that is contributing to its death toll.  A free ebook reveals dramatic new research which shows how this silent killer can be avoided.  Get this free ebook NOW: Osteoporosis Can Be Prevented
