We’ve all grown knowing that milk gives strength and helps us grow healthier and more naturally. A glass of warm milk before bedtime will help you sleep and if drunk at the gym, it helps with hydration more than water and it also prevents muscle pain caused by training Stronger bones are made and maintained with constant milk consuming and it waves goodbye to osteoporosis at the elder. Raw milk has been an issue of discussion for many years, because many people, mostly from the countryside, stated that the most natural way to drink milk is without boiling it, and just as it is, directly from the cow. In these circumstances, scientists have reacted and told them that they are being exposed to salmonella and various infections. Also, many studies have shown that pasteurization doesn’t change the nutritional value of the milk. In these harsh times when soda and all kinds or artificial juice are preferred by children, milk is always advised to be part of a healthy diet.
But is milk as good as they told us for so many years? New studies show otherwise. Potential ill effects have been discovered by the latest researches that scientists have made in this domain. In other words, drinking too much milk can give the body a pause. In addition, there have also been studies that bring upfront the fact that consuming milk leads to ovarian and prostate cancer, but they also hide the real truth behind the same excuse: more research is needed.
Last year, a Swedish study that has been made equally on men and women has found out that those who drank more than three glasses of milk a day have shown a death rate twice as bigger as those who hadn’t had this custom. Also, broken bones have been registered in the health chart of those women who drank a lot of milk. Dr. Karl Michaelsson of Uppsala University is the one who has conducted the study and says that at the moment, the information he has doesn’t urgent a change of diet that excludes milk, but it could be a possibility, in order to prevent this changes that are so negative.
However, all researches that have been made about milk modifies the image of it globally. Dr. Karl Michaelsson of Uppsala University states that
“The idea that milk is ‘a perfect food’ has been discredited. It’s a good food, but you shouldn’t look at it as a magic food.”
