Earlier this week I created a post about whether milk is really good for us. My friend forwarded the link to his uncle who’s been a Paediatrician for 40 over years. His comments about milk, juice and more is as follows: –
Many thanks for that interesting article on milk consumption in the western world. I agree with the writer that the Dairy & Beef industry lobbyists have brain-washed the public through sleek advertisements and strong political influence on respective governments. As a Paediatrician my recommendation to the mothers is that they breast-feed as long as possible in the first year of life (cowâ€™s milk is for the calf!). If for some reason not able to breast-feed give formula as second best choice. I advise cowâ€™s milk only after the first year and limit consumption volume to 300 to 400 mls per day and concentrate on giving healthy table foods for most calories. We recommend whole ( full fat ) milk in the second year of life and then decrease fat content over the next couple of years to zero fat content. We strongly recommend veggies & fruits ( not sweetened juices because of sugar & lack of fibre ) and whole grain diet for plant-based protein. Alas with fast food influence and busy working parents our message often gets lost! P
lease send me the web-site of that article on my e-mail address.
