Controversial Health Issues: Cow Milk and Soy
Health updates always present us with shocking news and
truths (really?)-such as demonizing humble cow's milk and soy
products. In my personal non-scientist's opinion, these health
revelations seem quite shocking and warrants some debate and
research. Okay, let's see TWO main HEALTH CONTROVERSIES.
ONE: Cow's Milk is Dangerous
Common health issues aside (such as having lots of saturated
fat), cow's milk is said to be harmful to us because it packs
1. Growth hormones used to make cows grow bigger and produce
2. 20% more pus due to the hormonal injection on cow's udder, in
which they need more antibiotics.
3. Indigestible milk - cow's milk is for baby cows, not HUMANS.
TWO: Soy May Not Longer Be a Health Joy
Not to pull the joy out of the goodness of soy, it has been
claimed that soy actually causes breast cancer!
It is simply because soy has high levels of plant estrogens,
which can fuel more breast cancer cell growth.
So, WHAT NOW? No milk (both cow's and soy's)? How can we
non-infants get our daily calcium then? If you would like to
believe these latest health developments and exercise caution,
you have the option to consume other calcium-rich food sources.
In contrast, if you are like XFile's most skeptical FBI agent
called Agent Scully -- who thinks that
milk's cow 'demonization' as dangerous is based on conspiracy
theories -- then shall I suggest you approach this issue with a
more open mind. You could exercise a little caution by consuming
cow's milk and soy product in moderation (of which now begs the
question how much is too much).
Before I end my newsletter, let me drop another BOMB, especially
for you Energy Drink Drinkers. Drinking Energy Drink will hit
the bull's eye in your brain - it can cause stroke!
Believe it or not, it's your decision! Once again, consume
everything in moderation.
