Haven’t we all read this lie in our school textbooks that we should have cow’s milk every day because it is rich in Calcium. The books forgot to mention that cow’s milk is an excellent source of calcium and other nutrients not for humans but for her baby calf that has 4 stomachs and grows from 30 kilos to 100 kilos within a few months. Let’s forget for a moment that cow’s milk contains pus cells and blood, and the dairy farming is responsible for torture and rape of millions of cows. The biggest problem with cow’s milk is that human body can’t absorb the calcium coming from cow’s milk (because we are NOT calves). Most of the calcium that we get from animal products is removed from the body with urine. In fact, some researchers also say that milk and other animal products are acidic so to neutralize the acid, the body leaches out calcium from the bones.
