Dairy and Prostate Cancer

Just like previous studies on the apparent link between dairy and prostate cancer, a new study published in the Journal of Nutrition concludes that dairy products can increase the risk of prostate cancer. This study comprised 21,660 participants in the Physicians Heath Study for 28 years and the results show that those who consumed more than 2.5 servings of dairy products per day were at a 12 percent increased risk of prostate cancer, compared with those who consumed less than half a serving (one serving equals an 8-ounce glass of milk or 2 ounces of cheese).

Please visit Dairy Products Increase Risk of Prostate Cancer:
Cows produce milk for their babies. This milk is perfect for a growing calf who has specific enzymes in his digestive system to digest this high-protein food loaded with casein, a protein humans cannot digest properly. Added to this fact, dairy products today may be laden with antibiotics, hormones, pesticides and other toxic substances that certainly are not good for us. Sometimes the obvious needs to be brought to light again: milk is species-specific. Humans are the only species on Earth who drink milk from another species and who drink milk past infancy. Fortunately, our loving Creator has blessed us with an amazing array of plant-based food that easily helps us substitute dairy in our diets: soy milk, almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk, hemp milk and hazelnut milk are some. Give them a try and your body will thank you!
