So you think that milk is good for your body? If yes then you really need to read this article right till the end. There are a lot of people who have similar believe as you, and I cannot blame anybody for this because dairy farmers are responsible for all these. They claim that milk will help strengthen your bones because of the presence of calcium in it. They also claim that milk will give you such energy boost that you will feel like a superman. Obviously, they want you to believe this way so that they can cash in on your gullibility. However, just as some other myths are doing the rounds of the weight loss industry, this is also a myth.
1. As a matter of fact, the milk you purchase from your local store is not pure milk: it has been processed with the help of pasteurization, meaning that it has been boiled at a temperature of 160 centigrade and then cooled down. Milk is pasteurized in order to kill any and all the germs present in the raw milk. On the flip side, pasteurization not only kills the germs, but also the beneficial nutrients present in it. Enzymes such as lipase and phosphates can be a lot beneficial to your body, but you don’t get those enzymes in the pasteurized milk that you purchase from your local shop.
That is not however the end of the story. Pasteurization also kills antibodies such as immunoglobulin that is present in raw milk. Immunoglobulin strengthens the immune system in your body against various diseases. From my point of view, milk will not benefit you, at least not the one that comes in sealed packets.
After pasteurization is completed, the milk is homogenized to hold the cream at the bottom. Once this is completed, several synthetic vitamins are added to it in order to make it ‘nutritious’. However, remember that synthetic vitamins are not and can never be substitutes for natural vitamins. They are man-made chemicals and will cause more harm than benefit to your body.
2. Milk causes weight gain: Contrary to what you might believe, milk will actually make you gain weight rather than lose it. If you are in the habit of drinking milk frequently, it is not surprising that you have become overweight. As you drink more and more milk, you will gain more and more weight.
3. Milk causes a host of other diseases: Besides weight gain, there are a lot of harmful side effects of drinking milk, such as acne, arthritis, skin allergies, cancer, constipation, etc.
