- Pasteurization is a process that involves putting the milk under high heat, which destroys enzymes and results in diminished vitamin content. It also kills beneficial bacteria and promotes pathogens.
- In order to meet the demand for milk, cows are being treated with synthetic growth hormones that make them produce more milk than normal.
- Milk consumption has been linked to health conditions such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes, chronic infections like upper respiratory and ear infections, obesity, osteoporosis; cancer of the prostate, ovaries, breast, and colon; allergies, increased tooth decay, colic in infants, growth problems in children, and arthritis.
- 65% to 75% of the worldâs population is lactose intolerant.
