Dairy Is Bad for Humans and the Planet: So Why Are Public Schools Required to Offer Milk With Every Meal?

Dairy Is Bad for Humans and the Planet: So Why Are Public Schools Required to Offer Milk With Every Meal? | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it
Schools account for about eight percent of all milk sales, and the dairy industry uses money and lobbying power to convince us that milk is essential for kids.

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, October 30, 7:22 PM

Did you know that dairy milk from cows is for baby calves to fatten them up, not for human consumption? Dairy milk from CAFO farming operations is high in saturated fat, cholesterol, and antibiotics.

 

You can bet that most school districts that serve dairy milk get their milk from confined animal feed operations.

 

Dairy and other animal based foods are inflammatory leading to diseases. Dairy has been shown in numerous studies to not keep bones strong.

 

Check out Dr Michael Greger’s non-profit site www.nutritionfacts.org for the all the skinny on dairy consumption.

 

Health Tips:

Plant based real whole food nut and seed milks are anti-inflammatory, do not lead to disease, are delicious, and when made by you are much more nutritious.

 

When making your own almond milk first soak the nuts and leave the skins on. The skins have all the antioxidants.

 

Nuts and seeds are rich in essential fiber, vitamins, and healthy fat. Today there are many kinds of nut and seed milks you can choose to make or buy. If you buy, organic without any other non essential ingredients is best.

 

Calcium is important but so is magnesium, boron, and strontium for heathy bones. Get your calcium, boron, and magnesium from plant based real whole foods, not from calcium supplements. Leafy dark greens, legumes (beans, lentils, peas), and whole ancient grains.

 

You can take ionic liquid magnesium or magnesium oil if you require more for your individual body. Ionic liquid minerals have the most minerals.

Did you know that avocado is really a fruit, but contains very little sugar and is a healthy fat all in one delicious package? Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat, fiber, vitamins B, C, E, and K and rich in potassium, helping your heart, and copper.

 

Consuming avocados does not make you fat. Avocados help to fill you so you may eat less non healthy food.

 

Read the full skinny on avocados.

 

Health tips:
Many of you eat avocado as a veggie with tomatoes, onions, and salsa in guacamole. Some of you like the trendy avocado toast and/or stuffed avocado.

 

Avocado also makes a delicious creamy chocolate mousse and is very tasty eaten with other summer fruits like berries with a little nut butter.

 

Avocado can be used in place of dairy for creamy dishes. Avocados can also be frozen in slices giving you an extra frosty creamy texture similar to frozen bananas.

All protein comes from plants. Cows eat plants. So skip the middle “cow” and consume just the plants for your protein.

 

Health Tips:

Sprouts, algae, greens, crucifers, root, land and sea veggies, legumes (beans, peas, lentils), nuts and seeds are all rich in plant based real whole food protein. You don’t need to eat beans with rice.

 

You can eat beans with quinoa or buckwheat which is better for your blood sugar. Rice like white potatoes turns to sugar quickly and rice has been shown to contain arsenic, better to limit eating it

Did you know that seeds like flax, chia, hemp pumpkin, sesame, and sunflower are rich in omega 3s and 6s essential fatty acids, plant based protein, and fiber? Flaxseeds are good sources of folate and lignan precursors (phytoestrogens that can dampen the effects of your body’s own estrogen). Lignan precursors are activated by the good bacteria your gut.  

 

Flaxseeds are considered a first line medical therapy for menstrual breast pain states Dr Michael Greger, “How Not to Die”. If you’re concerned about breast cancer risk, eat about a tablespoon of ground flaxseeds daily as this process can extend your menstrual cycle by about a day.  Dr Greger goes on to say, that this means you’ll have fewer periods over the course of a lifetime risk and may have less estrogen exposure and reduced breast cancer risk.

 

60 percent of chia seeds fat content is from omega 3s making them one of the best plant based sources of these essential fatty acids. Omega 3s help reduce inflammation, boost cognitive performance, and reduce high cholesterol.

 

Sunflower seeds are an excellent source of vitamin E, good source of copper, B1, magnesium, and selenium. You can use in place of more expensive pine nuts. Purchase raw.

 

Pumpkin seeds are the real treats on Halloween and year round. They are packed with protein, fiber, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium and loads of potassium. In one ounce there is 8.6 grams of plant protein and 10 grams of healthy unsaturated fat.

 

Sesame seeds (think Tahini) are rich in protein, B1, copper, manganese, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, ad iron. sesame seeds also contain two compounds which belong to the family of lignans.

 

Health tips: Choose healthy raw seeds and nuts over packaged snacks that contain questionable ingredients. These plant based real whole foods are high in digestible protein, fiber, and vitamins and minerals from Mother Nature, not from a lab. You can make DIY nut/seed butters from these satisfying plant foods. Combine together for more delicious nutritious goodness which satisfies your hunger and gives you real whole food energy (fuel) which your body requires to function optimally.

 

Want to beat depression? Eat more seeds as in sesame, pumpkin, sunflower, and butternut squash seeds. 

 

Make sure to skip the animal based recommendations in this article. Not only are animal based foods harmful for your health, but more importantly, animals are living sentient creatures that feel pain just like you and your pets. You would never think to eat your dog or cat, then why consume barnyard animals. Visit an animal sanctuary.

Did you know that new research shows that consuming organic soy, including tofu, edamame, and tempeh is healthy and may have a  protective effect? Tempeh is a fermented soy product and fermented foods are known to be healthy for you to eat.

 

Make sure you are only eating organic as about 90-95 percent of conventional soy contains GMOs which have been shown to harm your body.

 

Not sure, then check out Jeffrey Smith with the Institute of Responsible Technology or Ronnie Cummins of Organic Consumer’s Association, or Andrew Kimbrell, Public Interest Lawyer for Center for Food Safety, or John and Ocean Robbins with www.foodrevolution.com 

 

Health tips:  Eat a variety of fermented plant based foods daily or weekly as well as other plant based real whole foods, such as jicama, asparagus, dandelion greens, onion, garlic, beans, root veggies, crucifers, chicory, mustard and collard greens. 

 

Organic produce contains prebiotic fibers which feed your gut bacteria , keeping them happy and well. When your gut micro biome is happy and well, so are you.

Did you know you that when you give your body all the necessary raw materials such as deep greens, sea veggies, sprouted foods, dark pigmented veggies/fruits, avocado, seeds/nuts, and legumes (beans, peas, lentils), and ancient whole grains that won’t spike your blood sugar, you’re supplying the body with food it recognizes and can utilize?

 

Your body uses these foods to reconstruct tissues and organs correctly, to promote repair and reduce damage in your cells that occurs as you age, to to build and restore muscle, to store fat where it is needed helping you stay fit.

 

All your organs, tissues, cardiovascular system, neurological system, and immune system get stronger and function with greater efficacy.

 

Every aspect of your physical, mental, and spiritual health will improve when you supply the body with an adequate supply of the correct nutrients and remove toxins from your environment. That includes brain function, energy levels, physical appearance, and vitality.

 

Health tips:  Avoid animal based foods as they are inflammatory. Meat contains the type of iron (heme) associated with colorectal cancer and lacks the phytates to put out the iron forged free radicals.

 

Plant based seaweed (sea veggies) are very rich in all the iron your body requires. Beans are also rich in non heme iron and beans do contain the phytates which extinguish the iron forged free radicals which cause inflammation. Remember phytates are now the good guys. See some of my previous posts.

How Bitter Foods Can Help Cut Sugar Out Of Your Diet | Care2 Healthy Living

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, November 9, 8:15 PM

Did you know that consuming bitter foods may help block your sweet cravings? Cave people knew to look for tubers which had a somewhat sweet taste. You have receptors in your tongue that code for sweet.

 

Today’s sweet nothings are exactly that and come to you by way of processed foods, artificial sweeteners, fructose, hidden sugars, so called healthy sugars, and unripe fruit. Today fruit is about 75 percent sweeter than it was a generation ago.

 

Even carrots and beets are much more sweeter today than when your grand parents and even your great grand parents lived. Eat more of the sea veggies which have high nutrition.

 

Health Tips:

 

You were meant to eat bitter tasting foods in the form of dark leafy greens. Not all greens though are bitter.

 

Mustard seed greens, dandelion greens, some kale varieties, some turnip greens, and arugula have more of the bitter taste. Spinach, chard, fava greens, and other cruciferous greens ahave a much milder taste.

 

However once you begin to eat these foods and other greens on a daily basis, your tastebuds within one to three weeks change and you begin to experience for yourself what real whole food was meant to taste like. Adding flavorful herbs and spices to your food will help to enliven your tastebuds even more.

 

When your tastebuds change, you no longer have the desire to eat sweet flavors all the time. You may still experience a little craving when sugary food is put in front of you. Taking chlorella, high protein algae will stop that craving cold.

Doing This for 30 Minutes a Day Can Help You Live Longer ("walking can be anywhere; wear comfy shoes")

Doing This for 30 Minutes a Day Can Help You Live Longer ("walking can be anywhere; wear comfy shoes") | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it

People who met the minimum recommendation for physical activity were 20 percent less likely to die during the follow-up period.

Whether people achieved their 150 minutes a week of physical activity through only walking or through other activities didn’t seem to matter; both groups reaped similar longevity benefits. In the walking-only group, those who walked the most were better protected against death from respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, and cancer than those who walked the least. 

This wasn’t surprising to the researchers, because walking has previously been associated with a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, and breast and colon cancers. But Patel was a bit surprised that the people who only walked got almost as much benefit as those who got other types of exercise as well.

Only half of U.S. adults—and even fewer adults 65 and older—meet the recommended guidelines of 150 minutes of moderate activity or 75 minutes of vigorous activity per week. For those people, Patel says, simply aiming to meet that threshold could have real implications on longevity.

The average pace people in the study walked at was 3 miles per hour, or a 20-minute mile. “It’s faster than you’d walk in the grocery store, and it’s enough to get your heart rate up a little bit, but it’s not like they were power walking or jogging,” says Patel. “Walking is the most common type of physical activity that people engage in in the United States, so I was very, very happy to see these results.”

Did you know that plant based food is extremely versatile as you can turn any vegetable into a plant based burger or loaf? Nuts and seeds become plant based cheeses, milk, and butters.

 

Grains become flour for breads, cookies, cakes, pies. Fruit becomes ice cream, sorbet, and butters and jams/jellies.. Zucchini, cucumber, carrot strips can be turned into plant based pasta using a spiralizer or simple peeler.

 

Sprouting or regular buckwheat can be used for granolas, desserts. Ground flaxseeds or chia seeds can be used as a binder in desserts or other dishes. Bananas and applesauce work as well for binders.

 

Coconut meat becomes coconut milk or coconut yogurt. Greens can become plant based wraps for sandwiches.

 

Health Tips:

Plant based foods are not only versatile in the kitchen but they are the food your body understands. When you feed your body with food other than plant food your body can’t utilize it to perform its functions. Why give your body something that can harm it?

 

Plant based food is rich in essential fiber, vitamins, and minerals, antioxidants, enzymes, plant protein, phytochemicals, and other nutrients which your body needs to do its work so you can thrive.

 

Fiber not only keeps everything moving in your digestive system, but it also acts as a prebiotic which is the food your gut bacteria thrive on.

 

A plant based lifestyle based on more raw foods with an abundance of greens and sprouts and which includes some ground flax or chia seeds, and walnuts for adequate omega 3s and little to no processed foods is very healthy.

 

Plant based foods are anti-inflammatory and have been shown in clinical trials and through anecdotal information to help reduce disease, obesity, regulate hormones, blood sugar, blood pressure, support your immune and digestive systems, help your brain to function optimally, and help you to feel full and satisfied for longer periods without eating excess junk foods.

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, August 1, 8:31 PM

Did you know that the best sources of omega 3s are from plants? Fish get their omega 3s from sea veggies and so can you.

Health tips:


Sea veggies, leafy greens and certain types of algae are the best source for omega 3s (EPA and DHA). Next up are ground flaxseed, chia, hemps seeds, and walnuts.

 

Your brain is composed of about 60 percent fat. DHA is an essential building block in the your brain and the retina of your eye. Algae is rich in DHA.

 

Your body requires essential fatty acids everyday as it cannot produce them. There are two types of fats your body can’t make. You have to get them from the food you eat.

 

The two fats are alpha-linoleic acid ALA which are omega 3s and linoleic acid which is omega 6s. Omega 3s reduce inflammation and omega 6s promote inflammation.

 

One tablespoon of ground flaxseeds gives you 1.6 grams of ALA. Flaxseeds need to be ground for good digestion.

 

When you consume in excess of four times the amount of omega 6 to omega 3 fats, your body tends to create excess inflammation. Omega 6s are found most in animal based and processed food.

 

Smaller amounts of omega 3s are found in raw fruits and non-green veggies such as winter squash. Wakame, dulse, kombu, and nori (all sea veggies) contain both EPA and DHA. Purslane, a healthy edible weed contains EPA and DHA omega 3 fats. Wild berries also contain omega 3s.

Did you know that avocado is really a fruit, but contains very little sugar and is a healthy fat all in one delicious package? Avocados are high in monounsaturated fat, fiber, vitamins B, C, E, and K and rich in potassium, helping your heart, and copper.

 

Consuming avocados does not make you fat. Avocados help to fill you so you may eat less non healthy food.

 

Read the full skinny on avocados.

 

Health tips:
Many of you eat avocado as a veggie with tomatoes, onions, and salsa in guacamole. Some of you like the trendy avocado toast and/or stuffed avocado.

 

Avocado also makes a delicious creamy chocolate mousse and is very tasty eaten with other summer fruits like berries with a little nut butter.

 

Avocado can be used in place of dairy for creamy dishes. Avocados can also be frozen in slices giving you an extra frosty creamy texture similar to frozen bananas.

Why Dairy Doesn't Support Bone Health - Hippocrates Health Institute

Why Dairy Doesn't Support Bone Health - Hippocrates Health Institute | Fitness, Health, Running and Weight loss | Scoop.it
Dairy industry media marketing campaigns tell us that “no matter what your age, dairy’s nutrients are an essential part of promoting good bone health,” the National Dairy Council’s website claims.1 There is “overwhelming scientific evidence,” says the Council, that consuming milk, cheese and yogurt throughout your life “may delay or minimize age-related bone loss and thereby …

Did you know that studies have proven that dairy doesn’t support bone health? Dairy is inflammatory, is acid based and too much of animal based protein strains your kidneys.

 

Osteoporosis, a bone degeneration disease has been a health problem in the U.S. and in other countries for years. If calcium from dairy is so beneficial according to the dairy industry, why is this disease still occurring?

 

Health Tips:
Calcium from plants is the best source for the human body. Dark leafy greens, crucifers (broccoli, kale,),beans, sesame and sunflower seeds, almonds, and pistachio nuts are rich sources.

 

In addition to calcium, your body also requires magnesium, boron, silica, strontium, and vitamin D plus sunshine. Boron helps to preserve bone density.

 

Chickpeas, beans, lentils, walnuts, avocados, raisins, prunes, figs, red grapes, oranges, apples, pears, and bananas are good sources of boron, a trace mineral.

 

Almond, coconut, pistachio nut milk and nut butters plus sesame and sunflower seed butters, coconut yogurt and coconut kefir will also help to support you bones.

Did you know that Mother Nature’s herbals are the best medicines you can take for colds and flu?  The herbs listed in the article are spot on as well as these ones not listed:

 

  1. Astragalus root - Chinese studies have shown that using astragalus during cold season reduces the number of colds caught and shortens the duration of those caught. If you tend to get colds and flu often, astragalus can help you build up a natural resistance. Don’t use if there is a fever. Astragalus root is a deep immune tonic.

 

2.  Shiitake mushrooms contain polysaccharides that stimulate your immune system to fight 

     colds. 

 

3.  Cat’s Claw has immune stimulating effects to rid your body of cold viruses.

 

4.  Anise tea stimulates mucus secretion in throat and lungs.

 

5.  Ginger tea relieves chest and nasal congestion and scratchy throat.

 

6.  Mullein soothes sore throat, encourages expectoration of phlegm

 

Health tips:  Avoid antibiotics as they are useless against viral illnesses as in the flu. Remember to wash your hands frequently. Drink plenty of warm or hot liquids for hydration. Use your elbow to cover your mouth when sneezing and coughing. Get plenty of rest. If you don’t feel well, then stay home unless it’s an emergency.
