    If you think your kids need milk to grow strong bones, it's time for a second opinion. A comprehensive review article published in Pediatrics in 2005 showed that getting extra calcium—from milk or anything else—makes no difference in bone density in children or young adults. And evidence shows that dairy product consumption contributes to obesity, ear infections, constipation, respiratory problems, heart disease, and some cancers.

    A "new" major study shows that the amount of calcium girls consumed during the teen years had no impact on bone strength. Exercise, however, had a huge positive effect. For strong bones, kids need weight-bearing activity, sunlight, and a diet rich in fruits and vegetables. And there's healthy calcium in fortified juices, soymilk, greens, beans, and many other foods that avoid milk's problems.

    Dairy products contaminated with cow's blood and pus and are frequently contaminated with pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics. Dairy products are linked to allergies, constipation, obesity, heart disease, cancer, and other diseases.

    The late Dr. Benjamin Spock, America's leading authority on child care, spoke out against feeding cow's milk to children, saying it can cause anemia, allergies, and insulin-dependent diabetes and in the long term, will set kids up for obesity and heart disease, America's number one cause of death.

    And dairy products may actually cause osteoporosis, not prevent it, since their high-protein content leaches calcium from the body. Population studies, backed up by a groundbreaking Harvard study of more than 75, 000 nurses, suggest that drinking milk can actually cause osteoporosis. Find out more by visiting our links page.

    fuck yeah on the milk


    hit the skim, call it a day


    water for protein shake is fucking nasty... I mean, I do it regularly... but w/ milk is like 10x better.

    i drink a ton of milk.. maybe 2-3 gallons a week. thats what the old school bodybuilders did, they drank milk like all day and during workouts.

    i doubt milk is bad.. it's like the chances of getting cancer via a cell phone.


    i don't skimp on the fruits and veggies tho either, I eat a piece of fruit with basically every meal.

    Eat dark green veggies for calcium.

    Goat milk is good for you too, I don't know about the taste.

    I heard almond milk is pretty good though.

    what a dumb thing to say...


    correct, I haven't done anything that would "provoke" a broken bone... meaning I didn't fuck up somewhre and break my shit.. doesn't mean the risk wasn't there.

    what "provokes" breaking a bone?? riding a bike?? go running outside?? wrestle with friends?? sports?? martial arts??

    i played almost every sport by the time I graduated high school, except football.

    I can remember falling out of a tree house, I've been playing basketball since I was 8 or 9, I used to play on the baseball team, I skated fpr a couple years with some nasty spills, few years ago when I was supposed to join the Corps I would play football every week with the Marines, and when they tackled their intention was to kill you.

    myself included. anyone else remember my Got Pus thread?



    "not-milk propaganda" can't be any different than "milk propaganda". Except that the latter that has millions of dollars at its disposal for advertising and an industry that has considerable pull in congress.
