What worries me is that dairy products do cause cancer. Why are chinese women seemingly unaffected by breast cancer? Are they super human in China but when they come to the west then they seem to suffer similiar rates to western women? It sounds preposterous. Why are the food labellers not telling us the risks involved with drinking milk and eating cheese? Could eating a slice of brie on a cracker have the same risks to our health as smoking a cigarette? We'd all be happy to give our child an ice cream but we would never give them a cigarette surely?
Shaggy, you may be right about the injections and hormones may be the reason why dairy is carcinogenic but as the product and the injections are inextricably linked(organic farming notwithstanding) then we need to say dairy is causing cancer. Our dairy is produced on factory farms now where it is common practice to inject animals to promote growth unnaturally. We should really avoid the cosy 'farmer Giles' image for farming, that doesn't really exist.
It reminds me of the tobacco industry back in 1950s to the 70s and society was in denial about the risks and health experts denied there was no link to lung cancer but epidemiology studies clearly showed a link.
What if I could share some similiar epidemiological studies with eating dairy and see if there was a health risk, should people take things a bit more seriously?
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.
