  2. Hormones.
  3.  Most cows are fed inappropriate food.
  4.  Dairy products, when metabolized, are acid-forming. 
  5.  Research shows that the countries whose citizens consume the most dairy products have the
    highest incidence of osteoporosis.

    grass they were intended to eat.
  7. Most dairy products are pasteurized to kill potentially-harmful bacteria. 
  8. Dairy products are mucous-forming.
  9.  Research links dairy products with arthritis. In one study on rabbits, scientist Richard Panush was able to produced inflamed joints in the animals by switching their water to milk.
