Lactose Intolerance - Food Allergy?

Unlike celiac disease, lactose intolerance is a food allergy. We can determine this by the definition of an allergy, referred to by a “disease in the body caused by an external stimulus”. The reason many humans have adverse affects to lactose is the inability to digest it.

Mammals need an enzyme called lactase to digest lactose. Lactose is the sugar found in dairy. Our bodies only produce lactase between the ages of 18 months and 4 years. In fact, we as humans lose 90-95% of this needed enzyme to digest milk in the toddler stages. Why? The reason is that the use of breast milk in both cows and humans is only meant to be consumed as a baby. We know this because breast milk is used to grow human babies from an eight-pound new born into a 24-pound toddler. Cows milk has the same use. A dairy cow only produces milk when they give birth. Cow’s milk, by design, grows a 90-pound calf into a 2000 pound cow in the first two years of its life. Cows are much bigger then humans. Cows bodies are completely different then ours.

Lactose & The Human Immune System

The human immune system recognizes milk from another species as a foreign substance or an attacker/allergen. Milk products cause the body’s defense system to engage. Another reason there are so many allergies to milk and milk products, is that the undigested lactose in our system, due to the lack of lactase needed to digest it, is acidic in nature and pasteurized milk encourages the growth of bacteria in our intestines. All of this contributes to a greater risk of cancer because cancer cells thrive in acidic conditions. Dairy products have been linked to a host of other problems including; acne, anemia, anxiety, arthritis, attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity disorder, fibromyalgia, headaches, heartburn, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, joint pain, poor immune function, allergies, ear infections, colic, obesity, heart disease, diabetes, autism, Crohn’s Disease, breast and prostate cancer, and ovarian cancer.

Many nutritionists and nutrition doctors now believe that dairy is not a reliable source of minerals. Your body can get much higher levels of manganese, chromium, selenium, and magnesium from fruits and vegetables. Consuming high amounts of dairy blocks iron absorption, contributing to iron deficiency. A study funded by the National Dairy Council itself revealed that the high protein content of dairy actually leaches calcium from the body rather then supplying it as they have previously claimed. Milk does not always do a body good!

Milk Does Not Always Do A Body Good…

Dairy products produce mucus, and often, the body will develop a cold or allergies to fight the dairy invasion. Mother nature is no fool. All species, including ours, have just what we need to survive. We are not genetically engineered to consume milk…..especially milk of another species. In fact, we are the only species on the planet that consumes milk as adults. We are also the only species that consumes milk from another animal. Dairy products are disease producing. They are harmful. They cause suffering.
