Plasma and erythrocyte biomarkers of dairy fat intake and risk of ischemic heart disease
I can tell you that there are a few things that I really get drilled hard on because of patients deep seated beliefs based on truly admirable marketing. Top of the list is my aversion to dairy.
When you look hard at the research, there just isn’t much positive about dairy, and plenty in the negative column. Linked to pancreatic cancer, triples prostate cancer risk, common allergen, mucous forming, non-organic stuff contains antibiotics and hormones….and, in case that’s not enough, up to 2.36 times the risk of ischemic heart disease.
What amazes me is the depth to which the idea that dairy is good for us has permeated every level of health recommendation. While soy milk is a good alternative, just like anything else, too frequent is not good. Our household rotates between soy, almond and rice milk.
