65% of the global population is lactose intolerant. That means most people don’t produce the right enzyme (lactase) to properly digest the sugar in milk (lactose). In fact, for most people, dairy products are some of the most destructive things we can eat. Not only are they extremely fatty, they also cause our bodies to create tremendous amounts of excess mucus. Indeed, the problems dairy causes for our body are multifold.

Read on for some of the most popular questions about quitting dairy.

Our bodies cannot actually metabolise the calcium in milk properly, so drinking milk won’t do much for your calcium levels.

In fact, drinking milk might actually deplete your calcium levels. Dr. William E. Ellis said it best in The Healthview Newsletter: “…thousands and thousands of blood tests I’ve conducted show that people who drink three or four glasses of milk a day invariably had the lowest levels of blood calcium. My tests show, conclusively, in my opinion, that adults who consume milk products do not absorb nutrients as well as adults who don’t.”Dairy products, such as milk and cheese, can cause the body to create more mucus. This excess mucus isn’t limited to your nose and throat, however. You get excess mucus in your intestines, as well.

Over time, this excessive mucus hardens and forms a coating on the inner lining of your intestines. This coating of hardened mucus stops nutrients from being absorbed. And poor absorption leads to chronic fatigue.

Additionally, mucus is quite sticky. So you might have a hard time moving your bowels, since your stools will adhere to your intestinal walls.

Finally, milk and milk products neutralise hydrochloric acid (HCl). That means your stomach needs to work harder to produce enough acid to properly digest your food. This is another reason dairy products can cause poor absorption of nutrients.Cow’s milk is full of powerful growth hormones. These hormones are so that a calf can grow from 41 kilograms at birth, to over 454 kilograms at physical maturity, just two years later. This fact was first confirmed by Dr. Michael Rabbens of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, and has since been confirmed by numerous researchers.

These excess growth hormones can wreck havoc on the human body. By comparison, a human infant is born at 2.7-4 kilograms, and doesn’t reach maturity until 21 years later, at the weight of around 45-91 kilograms.In addition to lactose intolerance, many adults can’t metabolise the protein in cow’s milk properly, either. The main protein in cow’s milk is casein, which is important for maintaining a cow’s health. However, humans don’t really need casein. This explains why so many have great difficulty digesting it. In fact, 50% or more of casein is left undigested when babies drink cows milk.

These partially digested proteins irritate the tissues, making it more likely for an allergic reaction to occur. It also causes a burden on the liver, which has to work twice as hard to try to remove all the partially digested cow proteins.

Milk is also the culprit behind many respiratory problems. As we mentioned earlier, dairy products can cause the body to create excess mucus. This mucus accumulates in the lungs, throat, and sinuses. So if you have constant nasal drip of excessive phlegm in your throat, then dairy might be to blame. This is also why it is generally advised to avoid dairy when you have a cold. It can lead to an extra stuffy nose and further chest congestion.“Homogenised milk, because of its XO content, is one of the major causes of heart disease…”

– Dr. Kurt Esselbacher, Chairman of the Department of Medicine of the Harvard Medical Schoo

Cheese can cause you to gain weight quickly. That’s because cheese is a very concentrated food. It takes about 5.7 litres of milk to make a half kilogram of cheese. Because it is so concentrated, it doesn’t take much cheese to make you gain weight.

Additionally, cheese is made of milk. So a lot of problems with milk apply to cheese, as well. This includes excess mucus, and stomach problems.

With all the reasons to give up dairy, it’s little wonder why going dairy-free is becoming popular. Diary contributes to a number of health issues, so the less we consume, the better.
