Get this, a recent FDA test conducted on milk showed that EVERY milk sample pulled from various grocery stores had pesticides, BGH (Bovine Growth Hormone) and perchlorate. Perchlorate? That’s the chemical in rocket fuel that makes it ignite. ROCKET. FUEL. No worries though, none of the agents were above what the FDA says is “safe” for human consumption BUT developing girls and pregnant/nursing Mommies should monitor their intake of said rocket fuel (not sure how we do that since FDA doesn’t mandate that milk co’s. list the amount , much less presence, of perchlorate on the packaging). And just as an aside- since when the fuck is it OK to drink pesticides and rocket fuel, much less safe to do so? Computer-assisted analysis of federal dietary data shows that by drinking milk contaminated with the levels of perchlorate found in the study, you would get a daily dose of rocket fuel larger than the level currently considered safe by the EPA. So much for “safe” levels set by the FDA! It has also been found to be a carcinogen, cause immune issues and block the absorption of calcium (ummm isn’t that why we drink milk?). Oh and those billions I mentioned above, they actually are spent to prop up the dairy farms, pay for those “Got Milk” commercials and underwrite the world’s largest lab rat experiments (that’s us in case you weren’t soaking in what I wrote above).
Won’t pasteurization be sufficient in getting rid of the bad stuff? Nope, but it does damage milk’s protein structure and significantly impairs calcium absorption and nutritional value. It also destroys a host of naturally occurring digestive enzymes, including lactase (which when missing- makes you lactose intolerant). Aren’t we all supposed to be sporting milk mustaches and chirping “got milk” while high fiving each other as we chug down our calcium, vitamin D rich, build your bones cocktail of wholesome yumminess? Sure, next time I want to shoot a flame out of my ass and launch to the moon like a freakin’ space ship – then I will drink some more milk. Until then, this girl is gonna just say no to dairy and give the FDA the bird!
Milk, it wrecks your body good!
