Milk ?

Post  Lioned on Mon 11 Nov - 23:28

I am of the opinion that milk may be a problem to health.

I know that there is a practice to inject hormones into cows to promote lactation and increase production.

Personally i have stopped drinking so much of it.I still have milk in the occasional cup of tea but have cut out drinking it and having it on cereals in the morning.

I believe i have an allergy to something but i am loath to go on a complete elimination diet as i think getting paranoid about such things causes stress and could make things worse.

I have noticed a slight improvement in my condition since i have cut back on milk.

I am going to continue my research so any imput from the great wise people would be appreciated. á

I'm not sure about the lactose stuff,far to complicated to eliminate all that.

I am actually quite tolerant to most things i think. áá

I am coming round to thinking that the liver and kidneys can handle a certain amount of most things but if you have too much of something then your body will have to deal with it some other way.
Often through the skin or some other unpleasant means.

That is my theory at the moment anyway.

I only have a small tot of milk on my corn flakes, other than that it's black and sour coffee and/or tea.

A wise old colleague once told me that the human race is the only species that continues to suckle it's children right through their life using a cow as a wet nurse.
Although I do love a good rice pud, sago and tapioca well doused with milk now and again...á

I am lactose intolerant so most dairy products are a big no for me, my son too was born without the enzyme that deals with lactose, he was brought up on a formula called Velactin, which looked and smelt like boiled potato water. He was very ill when first born and was rushed to an isolation hospital at 2 days old. It was only because my own doctor came to visit me and had the baby rushed to hospital that he is still alive, he was literally starving to death as they were giving him milk at one end and it was coming straight out at the other end. His first two years were spent mostly in hospital, just home for the occasional week now and then. I think he was their little guinea pig.

I only use milk for cereal and cooking but these days I can buy fully skimmed lactose free, which is wonderful. I also use Elmlea cream which is none dairy, but you can't tell the difference. Anything with ordinary milk, cream etc and I don't go far from a bathroom for two days á

Sorry to hear of those problems mara thon.

I am learning that cows are full of a hormone called IGF-1 which is good for baby cows but not for humans,it is a growth hormone,i have read it can cause inflammation in humans and bad skin conditions.
I understand milking cows may be injected with additional hormones to increase production.It cannot be good for you.
I like my cereals in the morning but am trying to keep off the milk for a while to see if it makes any difference.

Thanks Lioned. I don't really see it as a problem any more, I'm not that keen on milk anyway, the thought of drinking a glass of milk and I think I would throw up. I would suggest though that if you need milk for anything try the fully skimmed lactose free and for cream try Elm Lea, honestly you can't tell the difference. As for cows and hormones, well I think they shove hormones in almost all farm animals these days, grow faster, fatten quicker, sell quicker, heaven only knows what we are really eating.

Thanks mara thon,i am going to try the lactose free stuff.I imagine there are different levels of 'intolerance' and that can occur at any age,that is my belief anyway from my research so far.
I suspect i have a fairly mild case but sometimes go into 'overload' so i am going to cut it out for a month or so and see where i am,then maybe introduce the occasional treat.
Coming up to Xmas will be difficult avoiding those chocolates. á
