Food manufacturers, animal agriculture and the dairy industry invest untold amounts of money creating and spreading propaganda intended to keep people in the dark, resulting in sickness and disease thereby increasing healthcare costs and untimely death.
Most Americans have been led to believe a healthy diet includes meat and dairy. Yet, nothing could be further from the truth.
With between 65 – 99% of the population lactose intolerant, one is left to wonder why dairy is recommended as part of a healthy diet.
Fact… approximately 65 percent of the human population has a reduced ability to digest lactose after infancy. Lactose intolerance in adulthood is most prevalent in people of East Asian descent, with 70 to 100 percent of people affected in these communities.
Symptoms of lactose intolerance include…
- Nausea, and sometimes, vomiting.
- Stomach cramps.
Yet, most people continue to consume dairy, including cheese and eggs, for one simple reason; they are being lied to by the government.
One Big Lie
The U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently released the 2020 Dietary Guidelines which continue to encourage people of all ages to consume meat, dairy, eggs, fish, and other foods that are literally promoting disease and sickness.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is the federal agency that proposes programs and implements policies and regulations related to American farming, forestry, ranching, food quality, and nutrition.
Here’s a portion of their recommendations from the Dietary Guidelines set forth by the USDA.
Dairy and Fortified Soy Alternatives Healthy dietary patterns feature dairy, including fat-free and low-fat (1%) milk, yogurt, and cheese.
Other products sold as “milks” but made from plants (e.g., almond, rice, coconut, oat, and hemp “milks”) may contain calcium and be consumed as a source of calcium, but they are not included as part of the dairy group because their overall nutritional content is not similar to dairy milk and fortified soy beverages.
Therefore, consuming these beverages does not contribute to meeting the dairy group recommendation. About 90 percent of the U.S. population does not meet dairy recommendations. The percent of Americans who drink milk as a beverage on a given day is 65 percent among young children, 34 percent in adolescents, and about 20 percent for adults.
Most individuals would benefit by increasing intake of dairy in fat-free or low-fat forms, whether from milk (including lactose-free milk), yogurt, and cheese, or from fortified soy beverages or soy yogurt. Strategies to increase dairy intake include drinking fat-free or low-fat milk or a fortified soy beverage with meals or incorporating unsweetened fat-free or low-fat yogurt into breakfast or snacks.
Dairy Contributes to Obesity
A recent report from the CDC found that over 7 out of 10 Americans are now overweight. Of those, about 40% of adults and nearly 20% of adolescents are obese. The CDC admits that these are the highest rates ever recorded for obesity in America.
Although dairy milk consumption has reduced in the past few years, two other much deadlier dairy foods have gained dominant share in Americans’ daily diet: cheese and butter.
Americans have doubled their butter intake and tripled their cheese intake as of 2017.
Both butter and cheese are the leading source of saturated fat in Americans’ diet, and both are packed full of cholesterol, sodium, and among the most calorie dense foods per volume.
With plenty of information to prove how unhealthy dairy is, you would assume the government would do all possible to discourage the consumption of these deadly foods.
Yet, the fact is, the government subsidizes animal agriculture to the tune of $38 billion. Funding comes directly from tax dollars which means even those who do not consume any meat or dairy are paying for animal agriculture. Yes, vegans are unknowingly contributing to animal agriculture.
Digging deeper, we see that animal agriculture contributes to disease which keeps Big Pharma making obscene profits without regard to your well-being.
Pharmaceutical companies receive substantial U.S. government assistance in the form or publicly funded research and tax breaks, yet they continue to charge exorbitant prices for medication.
The Truth Will Set You Free and Make You Healthier
The bottom line is this; there are corporations, industries and people profiting from keeping us sick. More every day, people are taking matters into their own hands by researching what actually occurs with food production.
Your best defense is information… and good information at that.
