Are Public Health Recommendations Increasing the Risk of Diabetes?

You will find that most who understand physiology and stay current with the medical literature are no fans of dairy products for multiple reasons.

It’s a common allergen.  It has been linked to type 1 diabetes.  It is mucous forming and contributes to ear infections in children.

And there really are no benefits, despite what the public health messages continue to drill into us.  Dairy is NOT good for our bones (unless you are comparing it to Coke…).

In this particular study, we see that increased intake of dairy decreases a marker that indicates worse blood sugar handling (lower levels of 1,5 AG = increased risk of diabetes) that would increase the risk of diabetes.

Think about this…  Name another mammal that continues to drink milk after they’re weaned?  Mammalian milk is a high calorie drink designed to support rapid growth in the early stages of life.  How many of us need “rapid growth” at 30 years old?
