Several years ago farmers started giving a hormone to cows so they would give
more milk. I wonder if this is why people are now more prone to be fat.
Except children don't drink milk anymore, they drink soda by the gallons,
fruit juices, coolaid, etc. Milk is an insignificant part of the AMerican diet.
You can ignore this "learned" conclusion.
Take out the fat, add sugar. Something's wrong with the way we
produce our food in this country.
To "cjb" there is some research out there that some of the obesity
problems come from the caffiene that is in everything. There is also research
out there showing that the processed foods play a role in obesity.
I seriously doubt anyone has ever gotten fat by drinking milk. As has been
mentioned, there are many far more likely culprits, namely sugar in just about
everything we eat.
The article implies that they dump sugar into 2% milk. Not quite.The
average lactose content of whole milk is 4.8%.The average lactose content
of 2% is 4.9%. Nothing to write home about.You ARE getting half the milk
fat when you drink 2% vs. whole milk.2% milk is still a wise choice if you
are going to drink milk. The sugar trade-off is miniscule. And you could do
much worse sugar-wise with other drink choices.
to Redshirt1701Caffeine is a stimulant. I've seen publications
recommending this substance before workouts for the purpose of fat burning.The obesity culprits are overdoing unhealthy fats, salt, & sugar.
To "Wally West" there are also studies out there that show that the
stimulant effect is not good when you are drinking caffinated drinks and NOT
exercising. The caffine boosts up a person's metabolism, and gives them
cravings for carbs. Since they just have a slight metabolism boost, and an
increase craving for carbs, they over eat and put on weight because of the
cravings induced by the caffiene.Think of it like turning on the
turbo boost only to have that extra energy used for eating instead of
The pancreas in the belly to starts the process of how the food will be used or
stored as fat. With all the petrol that is in sprays and fertilizer's the
food additives will make the pancreas have problems causing back pains and a
lot of stuff like your kidneys, lungs and heart to stop. The pancreas leaks
acids to brake down food, it can brake you down to.
Look at the change in exercise, nutrition and diet in America during the past 40
years and you'll see why there is increasing obesity, diabetes,
hypertension, and a number of other health problems among our population.Soft drinks, corn syrup, processed foods, sugar contant. It
would be wise to move more toward the diet described in Doctrine & Covenants
89, known as the "Word of Wisdom". Whole grains, vegetables, fruits,
foods in their seasons, small amounts of meat. We need to get up
off the couch and move our bodies, exercise.
Another confirmation of my philosophy and trust in natural whole foods to be
healthy and have a nutritious and healthy diet. Taking nutrition our bodies need
and rely on out of food is why americans health is so bad in all things. From
cancer to sobriety to aches and pains, they bodies of American people are being
deprived of the nature foods and elements we need to be healthy and fit. Milk and adulterated milk products are coming to light and the carnage
has made our childern fat, unhealthy, tired, and mentally unstable for the many
years governemnt has been trying to control our diet with fake food. Its not the
natural foods in excess we should worry about, its the unnatural and adulterated
"taste like" food creating health problems. Milk and milk
products are crucial for healthy growth and their hunger and claim of starvation
is because of lack of nutrition their bodies need and required for development.
Brick by brick, our children have been stripped of the natural foods and
nutrition to be healthy. You are what you eat and nutrition you
don't eat. Whole milk butterfat is mandatory development food for children.
Obesity = caloric input > caloric output.Eat less and/or do
To 'redshirt'Known fact: Caffeine is an appetite
suppressant & diuretic. Can you substantiate the craving for carbs after
caffeine?Having a fast metabolism and physically demanding job,
caffeine doesn't affect me the same as everyone else. It all boils down to
moderation and the individual knowing themselves. Essentially what Mukkake
said.The label on 2% milk says there are 12g of Carbs (all sugars)
per serving. So, the Harvard study is a waste of money. Trusting the Ivy league
is a receipe for disaster.There have been studies about how great
vitamin D is. Milk is a great source. I can't help but think is a ploy to
deprive humans of a vital nutrient.
