Human breast milk is approximately 5.5% protein. And it is designed to double an infant’s birth weight in about 180 days. Cow’s milk on the other hand is about 15% protein and is meant to double the weight of a calf in just 47 days. The high protein content of milk produces an acidic environment in the human body. To correct the acidic environment, the body will withdraw calcium from the bones to bring the pH level back in balance and that is called osteoporosis. Although dairy is high in calcium, it cannot be fully assimilated because of the high phosphorous content. For factory farm dairy cows, antibiotics are use to slow diseases, tranquilizers are used to calm frayed nerves, and artificial growth hormones are injected to increase milk production, all of which is consumed when we drink dairy. If health is your goal, minimizing your dairy intake will do your body good.
