Dairy – a food we CAN live without

By Meredith Deasley | February 8, 2011

Although cow’s milk is high in calcium, it is so difficult to digest that we really cannot consider it to be a good calcium source. It is also high in phosphorus, which binds to calcium, making it unabsorbable. The calcium is then lost in the urine. To prove that the calcium in milk is not being well digested, I invite you to consider this fact. In North America, we are the largest consumers of cow’s milk and animal products.

Mothers unknowingly pass candida onto their infants in utero, so often life begins for a baby with their bacteria numbers being out of balance.

Symptoms of candida begin in the intestinal tract and eventually lead to intestinal permeability and allergic reactions. An overgrowth of candida causes faulty digestion. When there is faulty digestion, nutrients cannot be digested or absorbed by the body. 99% of the time, when there is candida, there are allergies.
