…DAIRY PRODUCTS…

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a non-profit organization, is opposed to the current, widely accepted, USDA Pyramid.  The committee believes that the dairy group should be entirely eliminated from The Pyramid for the following reasons:

  • Cow’s milk and other dairy products have not been shown to reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
  • Recommending daily consumption of dairy products as the primary source of calcium is racially biased because a majority of people of ethnicities other than Caucasian is lactose intolerant.
  • Strong scientific evidence links the consumption of these animal products to a number of chronic health problems, including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, hypertension, stroke, osteoporosis, and allergies, whereas diets built entirely from plant foods—vegetables, whole grains, legumes, and fruit—offer the most disease-fighting protection of any dietary pattern. 

 What the committee has failed to mention is that dairy products, particularly milk, sold in American supermarkets, are completely unsuitable for human consumption. Here is why:  

Cow’s milk (regular and organic) has 59 active hormones, scores of allergens, fat and cholesterol.Diet of today cows is rife with pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides, and traces of heavy metals, antibiotics, hormones and even radioactive elements from nuke testing (strontium-90). Whatever a cow eats shows up in her udders, including grass, silage, straw, cereals, roots, tubers, legumes, oilseeds, oilcakes, and milk by-products, which contain a variety of chemical additives. This is a far cry from the grass fed free roaming cattle of the old days. A lactating cow excretes these contaminants through her milk. Humans, then, process this highly toxic chemical soup, making it even more deleterious.
