AVOIDING MILK REDUCES RISK OF INSULIN RESISTANCE – (12-12-05)

Avoiding milk is associated with a reduced risk of insulin resistance and the metabolic syndrome

I hear frequently out in the community that the message of what’s good for you constantly changes, so what’s the point? While it seems that “experts” keep changing their minds, the research, over the decades, has consistently been against dairy.

The research that is not against dairy shows only a weak protective effect at best. And, quite frequently, this research is funded by the dairy industry. A perfect example was a recent study showing that dairy helped study participants lose more weight over the course of 6 months. All dairy ads rapidly began to tout this amazing benefit of dairy. What they didn’t mention was that the group with dairy lost an additional whopping–ah heck–I tried to find the exact number on PubMed but the first 20 or so articles showed no effect on weight. It was like, maybe 3 pound loss over 6 months..

  1. WHAT “EXACTLY” IN MILK CAUSES DIABESITY? IT IS ONLY 12 GRAMS CARB 9 PROTIEN IN 2 %. ( BETTER THAN A SODA) IF POSSIBLE YOU HAVE SOME SCIENTIFIC STUDY I COULD REFER TO I WOULD APPRECIATE IT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH

  2. Actually–this WAS a study! And just one of many. Keep in mind that diabetes is no way near as simple as how many carbs we eat. Dairy has already been linked in multiple studies to Type 1 diabetes. If you think about it, mother’s milk is designed to rapidly stimulate the growth of the insulin producing cells of the pancreas in a newborn. That is needed for the rapid cell growth that occurs in the first stages of life. So mother’s milk is great for a newborn, but not so much so for the rest of the lifespan.
