Just have to chime in here.
There is so much more to be said about the "lactose" intolerance thing. There is really no way (yet, or maybe there never will be a way) to tell if a person is lactose intolerant because of the ton of fractionated and isolated dairy particles along with the homogenized and pasteurized dairy products that we have been bombarded with. Or if they are lactose intolerant for some other thing that they were just born with (lot to be said about genetics now as well that we didn't know only a couple of years back!).
You guys only mention protein and calcium. Holy smokes, there's a lot more to milk (raw milk) than just protein and calcium. How about the EFAs; so, so important for all body processes. How about enzymes and good bacteria; so, so good for digesting and assimilating... uh...protein and calcium and building up the immune system to fight off disease and keep us strong, for instance.
Is it possible that the plethora of food sensitivities is from major inflammatory responses set about by ingesting particles that are foreign to our bodies; things our bodies were never built to process.
The food tracker doesn't see the whole picture. I feel it misses a lot of important nutritional pieces.
The article in question isn't very helpful. Though it may be true that a person that gets a negative bodily reaction from consuming milk might be suffering from lack of enzymes, the drinking of pasteurized milk isn't going to help that; it just might make it worse because of the lack of enzymes and the cooked protein. AND, when you add homogenization to that you've got fat molecules that have been torn apart and...well, I confess I don't know the whole ramifications of that but I've read about it being bad for the milk (and, consequently, bad for us)
When I think of all the dead, over-process food that so many of us have had in our lives, it's no wonder that we lack the acids, bacteria, enzymes, and many essential phyto-chemicals that work with our digestive systems to turn good food into usable energy in every cell of our bodies.
That article is, like many I've read, chock full of misinformation that we would be better off without. It sounds like something from the American Dairy Counsel. It not only doesn't understand that dairy sensitivities are a real thing for a lot of people, it also doesn't consider the difference between conventional, commercial dairy products (so full of ...cough, cough...stuff, unmentionables) and fresh, local, grass fed, sustainably and humanely raised dairy. BIG DIFFERENCE!!
Hope you all have had a great weekend,
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
