That article is Horse****... need dairy for calcium. Yeah... right.
Real truth: Dairy LEACHES calcium from your bones b/c the phosphorus level is so high that it takes the calcium out in order to process it from the body.
I detest the dairy industry.
and *I* grew UP on a DAIRY FARM.
My whole family is allergic to dairy. (big surprise)
There are certain heart conditions that dairy is the CAUSE. (This is known by medical experts.) If I eat dairy, my heart starts "acting up". (Besides the HORRID migraines I get from it.) [Of course, I never ever eat it.]
Dairy is the root of a whole host of health problems. In most cases those who are asthmatic if they COMPLETELY eliminate dairy from their diets, 80% experience cessation of any symptoms.
I could go on and on...
And the real cake topper is get your 3 servings a day in order to lose weight.
What a HUGE disserve to the public. First off, anybody who eats dairy on the daily basis is already GETTING their 3 servings and in many cases a lot more than that! Next, dairy does NOT help in losing weight (they used a paid study in which they skewed the results on purpose). It does quite the opposite. It will help you to GAIN it. *sigh*
Oh and eating more of it to build up your tolerance is also HS. Your body will continue to react in a variety of ways that after a while, you won't notice how bad you feel b/c you feel bad ALL OF THE TIME and won't know any better. (There's also a whole naturopathic thought process on this that I don't have the time to post right now.)
I gotta stop now b/c this is one of those highly touchy subjects for me.
