Does Anyone Suffer From This? - Page 10
Many of the points you bring up I have already covered but I will entertain you for a bit since you mention my name twice.
An adult can live without milk (I personally never drink any) but children need it for strenghtening their bones and elders that don't consume milk are more subject to osteoporosys.
I think this needs to be qualified by substituting the word "Milk" For "Calcium" So what I believe you are saying is that children and elders need calcium in greater amounts than average adults because we all need calcium. Putting forward the argument that it only comes from milk is a bit forward. I can agree with that if milk were the only source of calcium but it is not. Once a calf finishes its growth does it still drink milk - no - it turns to another source where the elements the cow needs can be absorbed but for adult humans we think we need that cow's milk.
Rather off topic, but...
Human breast milk which is excellent for a baby is different from cow's milk. We have a topic on that somewhere here.
By the way, in none of the things of this thread I'm suggesting it on children - this is mainly about adults. For instance my children sometimes do eat meat as I leave it to their choice even though I do not eat it.
I ate steak for three consecutive days and I came back to life. Now, I make sure to eat one once a week.
Although it is testimony it is not science. It could be that you were lacking something that the meat had in it but does it mean you must now eat meat to get what you need and prevent you from becoming melancholy? This is the same argument with milk... It is not the milk it is what is derived from it. The body does not absorb "Meat" Or "Milk" It absorbs elements from it. My main argument is that with everything there is a consequence. For instance I need vitamin C is it better to get it from a pill, an apple or a juice pack? The answer is obvious but some will still think that a juice pack that has written on it "Full of Vitamin C" Is better just because it is labelled that way.
As has been said many times in this thread milk based products causes high levels of mucus that block your body's ability to fight off disease - this is science. Moderation is key here, as I still do consume dairy products in moderation and my underlying testimony is I never get sick
even though I live in the most stressful of environments known to man save probably only for someone being directly abused or in the front lines of war.
My children also do not get sick as often and even if they develop any symptom it does not reach the stage where they are bed ridden.
As for meat, for me it is like a risk, using a dead animal that is putrefying constantly is similar to playing the lottery with a meal, just not worth it.
