MILK GOES SOUR
450 doctors call for ban on dairy in schools
“COW’S milk should “not” be
given to children under the
age of five or used in free
school meals, doctors say.
More than 450 medics have
called for it to be replaced
with plant-based products
after claims that cow’s milk
raises the risk of cancer,
asthma and eczema.
Soya milk contains just as
much calcium and protein
Studies also show
that kids from ethnic minorities are 70 percent more likely
to be lactose intolerant.
Hacmatologist Dr Shireen
Kassam branded dairy
“a defunct food product”.
But the Government said:
“School Food Standards
require lower fat or lactose-
reduced milk to be available
h milk to children who want it.”
A review by Dr Walter Willett, MD, DrPH
This review summarizes the evidence for the benefits and possible risks associated with consumption of cow’s milk. The authors describe the relationship of milk consumption to the risks of fracture, obesity, cardiovascular disease, allergies, and various cancers.
Dr Walter Willett, MD, DrPH, a professor of nutrition and epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and his co-author, David Ludwig, MD, PhD, a professor of pediatrics and nutrition at Harvard, say the science behind those dietary recommendations is thin. And they say eating too much dairy may cause harm to both our bodies and the planet.
“If we’re going to recommend something, it obviously should be based on strong evidence,” says Willett. He reviewed the risks and benefits of drinking milk
Conclusions: Current-use antibiotics and pesticides were prevalent in conventionally produced milk samples, with multiple samples exceeding federal limits. Read more
Cambridge University published a study:
Production-related contaminants (pesticides, antibiotics and hormones) in organic and conventionally produced milk samples sold in the USA
This study showed levels of antibiotics and pesticides dangerously high in Cows Milk:
Current-use pesticides (5/15 tested) and antibiotics (5/13 tested) were detected in several conventional (26–60 %; n 35) but not in organic (n 34) samples. Among the conventional samples, residue levels exceeded federal limits for amoxicillin in one sample (3 %) and in multiple samples for sulfamethazine (37 %) and sulfathiazole (26 %). Median bGH and IGF-1 concentrations in conventional milk were 9·8 and 3·5 ng/ml, respectivelyFull Study
