Got Milk, you don’t need it, how about, Got Fruit?

Every once in a while I am approached to share something from another Blog, from recipes, to information, to guest writing full articles, all manner of things. Occasionally it fits the vision of what I wish to present on TheRawAdvantage.com, so I share it, in other times I choose to Pass.

Recently Hanna Edwards from LearnStuff.com asked if I would share some info regarding Milk Consumption / the effects of Drinking Milk put together by a group of researchers and Designers. I must say they really put together such a awesome Infographic (I like this word, first time I saw it..) that I cant help but share it.  

I really Hope you enjoy this Infographic, share this post far n wide 🙂

Thanks so much to Hanna Edwards at LearnStuff.com for sharing this awesome Informational Infographic 🙂

Got Milk Campaigns to me are so Ludicrous, it almost makes me fall over. When you think about it, really who wants a Animal boob Milk Mustash?

Ewwww Not I, Thats For sure!!

 Get off the Tit Dr Graham Says, ahah, Are we all a bunch of Babies… It would seem the Dairy industry thinks so! 

Got Milk?… You Don’t Need it! 

In Fact you would be Way better off without it, this is in part Why I came up with my “Got Fruit?” Logo and Shirt.

Consider, No other species on the planet drinks milk past infancy and none from other species (unless as a accidental serigate). 

How about Osteoporosis? It turns out the science shows us you don’t need milk nor large amounts of calcium for bone strength. In fact studies show that the rate of fractures and osteoporosis are the highest in milk-drinking countries!

It turns out that the keys to bone strength are lifelong exercise and vitamin D, which you can get from sunshine. 

Being a RHN and avid researcher myself I have come to many of the same findings regarding milk consumption that Hanna Has. I am passionate about not only plant based nutrition but about Animal rights and the Lack of Common Sense in consuming Dairy products. 

When you really look at all angles of the Dairy Industry, From the Production, Environmental impacts, Ethics and Health Implications from Dairy Consumption one can clearly see the true reason its so heavily Promoted in the mainstream is for Profit. 

 “The US federal government not only supports the milk industry by spending more money on dairy than any other item in the school lunch program, but by contributing free propaganda as well as subsidies amounting to well over $4 billion in the last 10 years.from opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com

The the above you may think, Profit..? They are spending so much on Milk.. But when you look deeper to all of the industries and interest groups Milk Consumption supports (medical, pharmesutical etc) and the Money to be made being one of the Large Producers (subsidies choke out smaller business) it all becomes much more clear. 

As I like to say, they found the Proverbial “Cash Cow”

Got Banana Milk Anyone? 😉

As Always

Wishing You Much

  1. Nice graphics and I agree with everything you said. However all of this only applies to dead pasteurized milk from sick factory farmed cows. Raw milk from happy healthy grass fed cows is completely the opposite and extremely good for people. Please do some more research.

      Thanks much for the comment and thoughts, 
      Always appreciated 🙂

      I agree the study is more so recording the information from Mass produced Homogenized pasteurized Milk. 
       
      To me this is the most relevant information as this is what is most readily available, not to mention in most places raw milk is illegal or hard to get. 
       
      I also recognize that Raw High Quality dairy has more healthful properties than the alternative mainstream Pasteurized Homogenized Chemical and Hormone Laden Milk. That said Raw Milk also has some issues in Question in terms of health, ecology, and ethics, at least from my perspective, learnings and opinion.
       
      I am well versed in nutrition and do see quality Raw Milk (more so Goat milk) as a Option, one I even bring up on occasion as a option with consults but not one I would recommend as a first option nor necessarily a great one.
       
      Personally I question the Ethics of making any animal subservient to us (Regardless of being called “happy” or grass fed), I question the Thought of Drinking the Milk from another species, especially after childhood, I question the amount of protein in milk and its effects on our health, I question the perceived “need” for dairy in our day and time when we have enough options and availability of Fresh Plant Foods for optimal health (unlike some times in history where milk was “needed” as a “supliment”)
       
      I understand that you may not agree with my Feelings and Conclusions, Thats fine.
       
      What I present here and on my site is what I have found most useful given my experience and learnings, that which I come by from looking and reading from as many perspectives and from as many people,  “experts” and “studies” as possible. 
      Thanks again for your commend and interest 🙂
       
      enjoy much
