LGLWSM Newsletter 076 - 6 Good Reasons to Moderate Dairy Consumption
October 31, 2014
About 5 years ago now, I gave up drinking cows milk and switched over to soy… before I knew about GMO’s. When I found out, I stopped drinking that too! Instead, I rely on Greek yogurt and greens to provide the calcium that my bones need.
"Americans consume more cow’s milk and its products per person than most populations in the world. So Americans should have wonderfully strong bones, right? Unfortunately not. A recent study showed that American women aged fifty and older have one of the highest rates of hip fractures in the world. The only countries with higher rates are in Europe and in the south Pacific (Australia and New Zealand) where they consume even more milk than in the United States."
"These researchers explained that animal protein, unlike plant protein, increases the acid load in the body. An increased acid load means that our blood and tissues become more acidic. The body does not like this acidic environment and begins to fight it. In order to neutralize the acid, the body uses calcium, which acts as a very effective base. This calcium, however, must come from somewhere. It ends up being pulled from the bones, and the calcium loss weakens them, putting them at greater risk for fracture."
Aside from these health reasons, the dairy industry is one of the filthiest industries in business. This doesn’t even account for the way cows dairy are mistreated. Mother cows lead very sad and depressing lives. And even though cows can live 15 years or longer, they’re usually slaughtered around four years of age... and their remnants go into hamburger meat.
For many reasons, see what you can do to cut back or at least moderate the amount of dairy products that you consume. Sign petitions often... to help force the industry to change its devious ways! And get the word out to friends and loved ones.
Americans have been subjected to many changes over the years – and far too few of them have been for the betterment of our existence. Remember that green veggies provide the best source of calcium that truly build strong bones!

I was also hoping to tell you some awesome news! but it didn't work out for right now. I approached a local news station recently and asked them to do a story about GMO's. And two weeks later, a reporter got back to me and asked me if I'd appear on camera. I said HECK YES!
I cleaned my house and yard like crazy and was ready for the interview but the reporter cancelled on me at the last minute. Although I was bummed out, I'm not giving up! They may still run the story later, so I am on hold for now. If their network won't do it though, I will approach the other networks! NC is far behind the rest of the country and I am hoping that GMO labeling laws win in Colorado and Oregon next week. Fingers crossed! I promise to keep everyone posted! XOXO
