Make vegan milk yourself
Through scientific research it is becoming increasingly clear that cow’s milk is superfluous for humans. Cow’s milk can even cause all kinds of diseases. One of the reasons for this is that we do not drink pure cow’s milk today, but rather an industrial deformed product based on cow’s milk. A cow is seen by the farmer as a milking machine and not as an animal. That is why more and more people are buying an alternative milk product. The question, however, is whether that is necessary. Vegan milk is easy to make yourself.
Why is cow’s milk no longer healthy?
Milk in this case means cow’s milk and no goat milk or camel milk. The most healthy product of cow’s milk is raw milk, but that can only be sold to a limited extent in the western world. Some people wonder whether the partial ban on raw milk is not a disguised sponsorship of the milk industry. Why refined cow’s milk from the dairy industry no longer healthy? A Swedish study from 2014 concluded that people who drink a lot of refined milk have a higher risk of bone fractures and die earlier. In this study more than 100,000 subjects were followed for either 20 years or 30 years.Cow’s milk contains too little fat. The vitamin-rich milk cream is scooped away before packaging. In milk, fat contains the most important vitamins and minerals.
Cow’s milk, the white danger
Cow’s milk contains too much calcium. Too much calcium is recognized by the body as a danger. The body responds by pushing calcium out of the body. According to some researchers, calcium is extracted from the bones in order to drain excess calcium. Other researchers see that the mineral density of the bones remains stable, but that people who drink a lot of milk products have slightly more bone fractures. That is why milk drinkers in general have a higher risk of developing bone fractures. It is a myth that milk is good for the bones. In a country such as the Netherlands, there are relatively many more fractures than in a country where hardly any milk is consumed, such as China. That is because the Dutch drink too much milk.Cows do not normally eat the grass that farmers now serve. They eat all kinds of herbs, plants and grasses. Clover, grass, dandelions and much more; cows eat what they like when they get the chance. Currently they only get one type of grass. This ensures that cow’s milk barely contains vitamins and minerals. Cows have a monotonous menu and are therefore sick more quickly. To keep them up and alive, they need a lot of medication. The residues of these medicines end up in the milk and in meat.The milking machines cause wounds to the udders. As a result, wound fluid and pus also end up in the milk. Have a nice drink? Yuk! No, better keep this synthetic medicine polluted, slimy pus on the shelves of the supermarket, the main supplier of industrial fillings.
