Don't Drink Your Milk! Audible –

Book Review by Dr Paul Smolen, posted at January 2016Dr Frank Oski s book approaches the subject of the nutritional value of milk the way you would expect an academic pediatrician would, sighting articles and research to justify his positions He contends that his research revealed to him that not only is cow s milk not nutritious for children or adults, but that it actually causes a lot of physical harm Here is a synopsis of what Dr Oski s take on the the research that he presents The saturated fat found in cow s milk is a major cause of heart attacks and strokes in the western world where it is consumed throughout life.Most children and adults develop lactose intolerance, that is the inability to digest the sugar in cow s milk after infancy and therefore cannot digest the sugar lactose, that is so abundant in cow s milk Lactose intolerant children and adults become sick when they consume lactose.Milk is a very high calorie food but lacks iron, an essential nutrient that children need Consuming a lot of cow s milk starves these children of needed iron and makes them susceptible to iron deficiency s devastating effects on a growing child including developmental delays and frequent infections.Many infants and young children are allergic to the proteins in cow s milk therefore causing a serious gut allergy called allergic colitis.So why, with all this medical evidence of serious harm coming from the consumption of cow s milk, does the Academy of Pediatrics, the USDA, and the Center for Disease Control continue to insist that children should get three servings of lean dairy each day after the age of two years Dr Oski addresses this dilemma with a blunt discussion of the power of marketing He contends that the dairy industry has a vested interest in keeping the American population drinking milk and that marketing that message works Here we are, 48 years after the first edition of Don t Drink Your Milk was published and we are still debating the same argument The dairy industry is either right milk is an essential and great food or the dairy industry marketing machine is able to drown out the truth about the health problems associated with milk consumption.Dr Oski is now dead and gone, having died in 1996 of prostate cancer What a shame and how ironic that he would die of a disease that many now believe can be fueled by the milk protein called casein that is found so abundantly in cow s milk For on that subject, I refer you to my book review of The China Study, by Dr.T Colin Campbell.So what are parents and pediatricians going to do with all the indicting evidence that Dr Oski, an extremely well informed pediatrician, presents in his book, Don t Drink your Milk Is cow s milk a healthy vital food or a food that fuels degenerative diseases like heart disease and cancers For me, the truth is somewhere in the middle as is so often the case with so many controversies I believe there can be many negative short and long term health consequences that can come from dairy to that, I think there is no doubt I see negative effects of dairy in my everyday experiences with all the constipated children who have stomachaches that I try and help Convincing their families to go dairy free is still a very radical move for these families however Many of these families are convinced that milk is the only nutrient that can give their children vital minerals for good growth The same question, asked in another form is at the crux of the great milk controversy Can children get enough minerals from foods other than dairy to sustain good bone growth I think the answer is obvious, of course they can, just like half the world does, from vegetables and other nutrients Yes, the nutritional orthodoxy is right that children needs the minerals that are abundant in milk but I believe that they can get them from other sources that are healthier, if they would just eat their vegetables but that seems to be a very hard sell in this part of the world For parents who want to dive a deeply into the science of childhood nutrition, I highly recommend Don t Drink Your Milk I give Dr Oski s book 4.5 out of 5 Doc Smo Stars Not only is It well written, concise, and well referenced but Dr Oski has proven that he was at least 50 years ahead on the great milk debate I think it is definitely worth a read for parents tasked with feeding a child.Smo Notes If you ever drank a milk You might the book cover might look interesting In fact author is trying to persuade you to avoid drinking milk with several facts Believe or not, it doesn t sound as untruth at all Even though the main idea of the book is interesting it wasn t fun enough to finish the entire book. This book has me convinced I am lactose intolerant sensitive Next step Time to get some medical advice That aside, this was truly eye opening to the fact that milk really isn t doing a body good In fact, most of the world population can t drink milk without terrible or at least uncomfortable consequences I didnt know how common it is to be lactose intolerant sensitive Nor did I stop to consider that milk is meant for infants, what s , cow s milk is for baby cows Not people All in all, this short muckraker like documentary left me with a lot of questions and than a few concerns about my own health and that of the public I ll be doing a lot reasech into this subject Setidaknya buku ini menambah referensi saya tentang apa yang ada dibalik susu Saat kuliah,dosen saya yang juga seorang peneliti tentang hal hal seperti ini pernah mengatakan, susu zaman sekarang kandungannya sudah sangat sangat buruk Ditambah kalimat yang mengatakan Susu sapi adalah untuk anak sapi sudah sangat jelas maksud dan tujuannya Saya juga pernah membaca dari sumber sumber penelitian lain tentang susu Bahkan, saya mengalami sendiri efek yang diberikan oleh susu terhadap tubuh.Awalnya memang susah untuk percaya Secara doktrin doktrin iklan di luar sana selalu mengatakan susu baik untuk tubuh, susu adalah makanan yang hampir sempurna, bla bla bla Ada baiknya kita meluangkan waktu, dan melihat perkembangan dunia Membaca buku ini tidak ada ruginya. Didn t really satisfy me because it focuses mainly on breast milk and allergies to milk by infants. 321 2014Aku suka susu sapi segar dan dingin Es krim apalagi Keju juga Itu pilihan lidah, sih Tapi tubuhku setuju banget dengan teori buku ini Karenanya, akal sehatku juga setuju banget CAUTION Milk Can Be Harmful to Your Health The frightening new medical facts about the world s most over rated nutrient If you drink milk, you MUST read this Frank Oski, MD, is the Director, Department of Pediatrics, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Physician in Chief, the Johns Hopkins Children s Center Now includes an appendix of recent studies related to milk. Cow Milk is bad for you, plus any diary products.The moral of the story you didn t born to drink something not yours. bukunya membuat saya kembali ke masa kuliah dan berharap kembali ke penelitian tentang susu.suka dan tidak suka susu itu pilihan,
