Dairy Consumption and Female Height Growth
Dairy is good from strong bones and teeth? That’s what the commercials would have you believe (although the evidence does not suggest this). This study seems to support this at least as far as making you taller. The fine print, however, is not in the commercials. Faster growth is potentially a risk factor for breast cancer. After all, what is the function of cow’s milk? It’s to rapidly grow a calf to a heffer, right?
As a society we have been so programmed that milk is good for us that no one steps back to see just how weird it really is. Take this for comparison….at what age does it become uncomfortable for a human to stop nursing from its mother? 6 months? 2 years? How about 18? 35? Seems weird, huh? Well, not if the source of that mother’s milk is dairy.
