Dairy Products Not Good For Bone Health

According to a new study published in Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, dairy intake and calcium do not prevent stress fractures. The study comprised adolescent girls followed for seven years. Their diets, physical activity, and stress fractures were tracked, and the results indicated that the girls consuming the most dairy products and calcium had not only no added protection, but among the most active girls, who got the most calcium in their diets (coming mostly from dairy products), had more than double the risk of a stress fracture, compared with those getting less calcium.

Cows produce milk for the same reason humans do: for their babies. Cow's milk is designed for a calf, who grows several hundred pounds in less than a year. The dairy industry enslaves dairy cows, steals their babies, steals their milk, and finally slaughters them when their milk production decreases and are too worn out from giving milk and having babies. How can this be healthy for our bodies, our minds and our souls? Many plant-based foods such as collard greens and kale are loaded with calcium, as well as plant-based milks (soy, almond, rice, etc.) Dairy is certainly not needed at all in a human diet.
