Calcium and Protein Myths

Although American women consume tremendous amounts of calcium, their rates of osteoporosis are among the highest in the world. Conversely, Chinese people consume half as much calcium (most of it from plant sources) and have a very low incidence of the bone disease.(32) Medical studies indicate that rather than preventing the disease, milk may actually increase women's risk of getting osteoporosis. A Harvard Nurses' Study of more than 77,000 women ages 34 to 59 found that those who consumed two or more glasses of milk per day had higher risks of broken hips and arms than those who drank one glass or less per day.(33) T. Colin Campbell, professor of nutritional biochemistry at Cornell University, said, "The association between the intake of animal protein and fracture rates appears to be as strong as that between cigarette smoking and lung cancer."(34)

Humans can get all the protein that they need from nuts, seeds, yeast, grains, beans, and other legumes. It's very difficult not to get enough calories from protein when you eat a healthy diet; protein deficiency (also known as "kwashiorkor") is very rare in the U.S. and is usually only a problem for people who live in famine-stricken countries.(35) Eating too much animal protein has been linked to the development of endometrial, pancreatic, and prostate cancer.(36,37,38) Consuming too much protein may also put a strain on the kidneys, causing them to compensate by leaching calcium from the bones.(39

As far as why the USDA and milk industry promotes milk, there is a possibility is that they promote milk not because milk is healthy but because through promoting milk they receive large compensations from the milk industry. An article posted by U.S. News & World Report called 10 Things the Food Industry Doesn’t Want You to Know reveals, “The studies that food producers support tend to minimize health concerns associated with their products,” and that “of hundreds of studies that looked at the health effects of milk, juice, and soda, the likelihood of conclusions favorable to the industry was several times higher among industry-sponsored research than studies that received no industry funding.” Because the milk industry sponsors many milk-related studies, they can help support claims of milk’s positive health effects, even if some scientific studies conclude that there are health concerns associated with milk.

Cow’s Milk Adds in Additional Hormone in Humans for Abnormal Growth

Since cows are always milked while they’re pregnant, they’ll secrete high amount of growth hormone called estrogen into their milk. No wonder, when boys and girls drink large amount of cow’s milk, their prostates and breasts grow even before reaching puberty. The growth is due to that the hormonal messages that help stimulate breast growth in females and prostate growth in males. Besides estrogen, other powerful growth-stimulating hormones like rBGH (recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone) and IGF-1(Insulin-like growth factor-1) are also found in cow’s milk. When human cells are kept exposing to too much estrogen, rBGH and IGH-1, the abnormal growth or overgrowth may lead to cancer, especially breast cancer.

The Health Hazard of recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) in Dairy Foods

Since 1985, U.S. dairy farmers or dairy producers were permitted to inject their cows with a genetically engineered bovine growth hormone called recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH) to increase up to 20% more milk production. The high-tech onslaught of rBGH, however, has caused udder inflammation in cows resulting in pus (somatic cells) secretion that contaminates the milk. On average, one glass of milk contains at least 322 million cell-counts of pus, which is up to the human pus-intake limit, and may cause Crohn’s disease. The sad news is that one cubic centimetre (cc) of commercially sold cow’s milk is allowed to contain up to 750,000 pus cells (note: the healthy milk should contain below 100,000 pus cells) and 20,000 live bacteria. Further, rBGH has been associated with the occurrence of colon, breast and prostate cancer.

As rBGH is an unnatural substance, it has brought negative impact on cows. One of them is called Mastitis, which is observed to cause many cows’ udders (mammary glands) to be infected with incredibly severe inflammatory infections, and later they’re treated with high doses of antibiotics and medications. Cow’s udders can continuously be infected with awfully painful inflammation. E.coli is one of the one hundred fifty bacteria which can cause this disease and then this disease will pass along to the next generation of cows, and finally end up into the milk you drink every day.

Milk and Dairy Products are the Main Cause of Osteoporosis

Milk is always regarded as a main source of both calcium and vitamin D and thus might be expected to decrease the risk of osteoporosis, yet research has not clearly confirmed this assumption as clinical research shows that dairy products and milk have little or no benefit for bone health. Evidence from many studies found that higher consumption of milk and dairy foods don’t appear to substantially cut off osteoporosis bone loss and hip fracture risk. Similarly, the Harvard Nurses’ Health Study published in Pediatrics in 2005 confirmed that dairy products or calcium supplements show no improvement in bone integrity. Probably this is due to the presence of other nutrients such as A that don’t benefit bone health at all. One of the examples is fortified milk which contains significant amount of vitamin A that has been proven to increase the risk of hip fracture.

It makes you wondering that people from New Zealand, the Netherlands, Australia, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Switzerland, Canada and USA who consume more dairy foods, osteoporosis and fracture rates are simultaneously the highest. Compared to those countries like Asia and rural Africa (such as Bantu women in Africa who generally consume no dairy products), where people consume little or no dairy foods, osteoporosis and hip fracture rates in these countries are the lowest. In comparison, the Chinese who consumes 8kg milk per year, the hip-facture rate is 6 fold lower than the American who consumes 254kg milk per year. If you still emphasize that milk is the primary source for calcium, why are there still 10 million Americans suffering from osteoporosis? The fact is that the less milk is consumed, the lower the osteoporosis is.

Do you know that milk is the main reason why your bones get brittle easily? Drinking milk is like you’re fixing an accelerator in your body which encourages an acidic environment in your body that eventually causes calcium leaching out of your bones to raise the risk of osteoporosis (read my article entitled osteoporosis prevention: how to increase calcium intake for a healthy bone). Now, thing makes clear to you that calcium in dairy products has little effect on your bone health. This finding is in accordance to an article entitled “excess calcium causes osteoporosis” written by Thijs R.Klompmaker in 2007. The reason is that on a diet low in calcium, your intestine takes in more calcium and thus mineral absorption efficiency is increased, while on a diet high in calcium, the efficiency of mineral absorption is decreased as more unused calcium is left to be excreted in the form of feces. That means your intestine will always take in sufficient calcium to suit your body requirement.

14 The Pros and Cons of Milk and Dairy on Mon Jul 11, 2011 5:14 pm


For reliable dietary advice, most nutritionists agree, look to the food pyramid. But when it comes to advice about milk and dairy, the question is: Which pyramid?

The official food pyramid comes from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It incorporates the recommendations of top ranking nutrition scientists from around the country. But other groups, disagreeing with some aspects of the USDA’s recommendations, have constructed alternative pyramids. One of the most influential is the food pyramid created by researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health. And one of the big differences between its advice and the USDA’s relates to milk and dairy products.

In 2005, the USDA’s dietary guidelines increased the recommended servings of milk from two to three cups a day. The latest guidelines, released in 2010, repeat that advice. They specifically urge Americans to get more fat-free or low-fat milk and related dairy products.

According to Harvard’s food pyramid, on the other hand, milk isn’t an essential part of a healthy diet -- and may pose risks.

The Case for Milk and Dairy

The USDA’s recommendations are based on the fact that milk is a prime source for three important nutrients: calcium, potassium, and vitamin D (which is added to fortified milk.)

“Milk contains a big package of nutrients that are especially important to bone health,” says Connie M. Weaver, PhD, who directs the nutrition department at Purdue University. “People who don’t drink milk tend to be deficient in them. So it makes good sense to encourage people to consume dairy products.”

Milk is also a good source of potassium -- another compelling reason the USDA committee increased the recommended servings from two to three in 2005, according to Penny Kris-Etherton, PhD, RD, professor of nutrition at Pennsylvania State University, who served on the committee.

Too much sodium and too little potassium together are risk factors for high blood pressure. Unfortunately, most Americans get too much salt and don’t get enough potassium. Milk isn’t the only source, to be sure. Many vegetables and fruits are also rich in potassium. But according to Kris-Etherton, experts hesitated to increase the recommended servings of vegetables, which were already more than most Americans were eating.

“Short of encouraging people to eat more vegetables, we thought the best way to ensure adequate potassium was to recommend low-fat milk,” she tells WebMD.

The Case Against Milk and Dairy

Not everyone thinks that was a good idea. Indeed, experts at the Harvard School of Public Health have labeled the milk recommendations a “step in the wrong direction.” One the most prominent critics is Walter Willett, MD, PhD, professor of epidemiology and head of the nutrition department at the Harvard School of Public Health.

“One of the main arguments for USDA recommendations is that drinking milk or equivalent dairy products will reduce the risk of fractures. But in fact there’s very little evidence that milk consumption is associated with reduced fractures,” Willett tells WebMD.

The Case Against Milk and Dairy continued...

Indeed, countries in which almost no milk is consumed, such as many Asian countries, have low rates of fractures, he points out.

It’s true, he acknowledged, that milk is a good source of potassium. But the levels used for the USDA recommendations are much higher than they need to be to prevent hypertension, according to Willett. “We’re much better off advising people to consume less salt,” he says.

As beverages go, milk is relatively high in calories. One cup of 2% milk has 138 calories, for instance. Drinking three cups a day adds 366 calories to the diet -- a lot for anyone watching their weight.

But Willett’s chief worry is that drinking too much milk may pose dangers. “By now there’s quite a body of data showing a higher risk of fatal prostate cancer associated with milk,” he tells WebMD. “And though the evidence is somewhat mixed, we’ve still seen a slightly higher risk of ovarian cancer associated with drinking three or more servings of milk.”

The Common Ground on Milk and Dairy

When it comes to practical advice, fortunately, the two sides aren’t all that far apart. Consuming a cup or two of milk or equivalent dairy is fine, according to Willett. “The point isn’t that you have to give up dairy,” he says. “But it’s also important for people to know that they don’t have to drink milk to be healthy.”

People who are lactose intolerant, of course, can’t easily drink milk. For them, and for people who don’t choose to drink milk, it is important to favor other sources of calcium. Examples include lactose-free dairy, and leafy green vegetables such as collards, spinach and bok choy, beans, and calcium-fortified orange juice or soy milk, and vegetables.

It’s also wise to make sure you’re getting adequate potassium, which is abundant in tomatoes, spinach, sweet potatoes, bananas, oranges, and other fruits and vegetables.
