Everyone has seen the advertisements “Milk, it does the body good.” These ads are everywhere. We’re told from an early age to “drink your milk”. Cheese is added to so many recipes, and I must admit, when I ate a typical American diet, I too loved cheese, and drank my milk just like I was advised to. Why? Because the food pyramid said too. My parents, my doctor and my school told me too, also. So, did commercials on t.v., and everyone around me was drinking and eating casein make me think that this was a “good” food? Of course, it did.
But, what was all this milk and cheese doing to my body? What is it doing to yours? Well, one of the main things that it’s doing is promoting cancer cells to grow, in fact it’s been found to be a carcinogen, and should be avoided at all costs. One of the reasons for this is that casein (along with the hormones that dairy cows are given to promote even more milk production) is stored in our fat cells for long periods of time. This gives them a chance to promote and trigger cancer growth. Everyone has cancer cells in their body, but these cells must be triggered in order to grow. A carcinogen is what triggers the cancer cell.
For a more scientific explanation of casein I’ve left the links below. I also suggest that you watch the documentary What the Health (found on Netflix) if you want even more information.
