Say BYE-BYE to dairy...
Dr. John McDougall is one of my most reliable sources for nutrition and health information. Here's what he says about dairy consmumption:
***If cow’s milk meant better bone health, then you would not find non-milk-drinking people from Asia, Africa, and people from the Middle East having stronger bones and less osteoporosis. The daily calcium intake of these mostly vegetarian people is 300 to 500 mg – far less than the propaganda from the dairy industry telling us to consume 1500 to 2000 mg daily.*** http://www.drmcdougall.com/misc/2005nl/march/050300pufavoritefive.htm
Say BYE-BYE to milk, cheese, yogurt, cottage cheese and ice cream! (I feel your pain...I've been a dairy-holic all my life until my heart attack!) Sad, but true, all dairy products are as damaging to human health as meat, if not more so. Instead, get your calcium from greens, beans, seeds and nuts. (Read THE CHINA STUDY by T. Colin Campbell) Extra-ordinary health and optimum weight are the results!
