Ever since we were born, we have been hearing about the health benefits of milk and how it can benefit our body in more ways than one. Our mothers have always made sure that we drank enough milk saying that it contains calcium which is very important to keep our bones healthy. We have also been made to believe that taking dairy foods will help our body absorb more calcium and vitamin D and thus prevent bone diseases like osteoporosis. But the shocking truth is that drinking milk is not really beneficial. Apart being polluted, there are a lot of health risks that you are prone to getting by consuming milk.
Many scientific studies in the recent years have revealed the detrimental health effects that milk causes. The first surprise is that drinking cow’s milk does not help to absorb calcium because our body simply cannot absorb calcium from cow’s milk due to lack of magnesium. Pasteurized milk make it more difficult for your body to absorb the calcium you need. And to top it, it has even been found that milk can wean off calcium or increase calcium loss from our bones as we age.
Now what really happens is that when we drink cow’s milk, our body pH moves over to the acidic side; this happens when we consume any kind of animal protein. Now this triggers a biological response in the body as the pH has to be neutralized again and this is done by calcium present in our bones as it is the best acid neutralizer that we have in our body. So, drinking milk actually causes a calcium deficit unlike the calcium surplus that we are made to believe.
These day, all dairy farmers and producers inject the cows with recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone or rBGH to increase milk production. Now this might have increased the milk production but resulted in udder inflammation in cows which makes them release pus or somatic cells into the milk. This contaminates the milk that we drink and that means we end up consuming these cells which result in different kinds of harmful effects and diseases like Crohn’s disease. Also, scientists are now studying the link between this hormone and its direct effect on causing prostate, colon or breast cancer.
We have also heard that drinking lots of milk decreases the risk of osteoporosis and related fractures. But once again, studies have shown that taking milk offers no protection to our bones in the long run. Milk has now become a processed food instead of a rich, healthy drink. Various processes like pasteurization and homogenization might make the milk sterile andcauses different kinds of digestive problems in us. Cows are also being increasingly injected with antibiotics as it is a billion dollar industry but the negative effects of all these drugs occurs in human beings who consume it thinking that is beneficial for their health.

Everyone knows we cannot survive without water. According to studies, people who drink a sufficient amount of the right kinds of liquids (distilled water, fresh water, fresh fruits and vegetables and their juices) have better body functioning and circulation overall, which are most important to healthy and long life.
Are you drinking the right kind of water?
Water plays an important part in our body function. When we are born, we are 80% water. When we died, we are only 50% water. This study shows that most of us are dehydrated. Water helps to circulated our blood and purge toxins out of the body. We feel thirsty whenever our blood becomes thick. Water also helps to keep the cells healthy and make the skin looks better.
Water is abundant on earth but only 0.08% of all the water is clean water. So what water is beneficial to our body? We need water that are :
- Neutral to negative pH.
- Rich in bio available minerals.
- Nutritional delivery system.
- Nature’s cleaning solution
- Free of contaminants.
Is it safe to consume our tap water?
There are also many contaminant in our tap water such as chlorine, fluoride, trihalomethanes and many inorganic contaminants. Chlorine is used to kill the bacteria but it is also killing all organic minerals that are beneficial to our health. The long term health consequences in consuming these contaminant are stroke, cancer, liver and kidney failure, digestive disorder and many more! The problem is we have always thought that our government has taken care of our water and thus, it never come across our mind that we are actually consuming low dosage of poison regularly.
Below is a video about water
Bottled Water – Our Solution?

Take action on yourself slowly. Do not remove caffeine off your diet immediately. Why? If you suddenly consume less caffeine than usual you are likely to suffer from “withdrawal” symptoms as the brain’s receptors become disorientated by the sudden removal of a powerful stimulus. The symptoms vary from person to person but include headaches, edginess and lethargy.
Ways to cut down
To cut down, reduce your caffeine intake gradually over a period of about two weeks so your body is not prompted to produce any withdrawal symptom. Try using a smaller measure of instant or ground coffee with the same amount of water. With tea, the longer it is left to brew the more caffeine it contains. Alternatively, stick to same strength, but replace every other cup with a herbal tea, fruit juice or plain water. If it is the taste that you miss then try the decaffeinated versions of coffee, tea and cola.
