Bovine leukemia virus may be found in 20% of cows, and is associated with human leukemia rates. High protein and hormones in dairy contribute to osteoporosis, and actually worsen calcium balance. Our patients report that even a single serving of any dairy product can result in immune dysfunction and infection. If dairy products are combined with a high sugar intake, bacterial and yeast overgrowth in the intestines can become so severe that the gut begins to leak toxins into the blood and lymph, generating depression, skin rashes, and further immune weakness.
Avoiding dairy is the single most important contribution you can make to your short and long term health and well being. It is an important way to lower your risk of immune suppression, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, and recurrent infection.
