I have heard many times that we should not eat dairy products. But never knew why. It turns out that there are several reasons.
Pasteurization is the big one. The intent is to keep the cream from separating. The way it works is that it breaks the fat down into very small particles. Prior to pasteurization, the body would digest the fat prior to absorption. Now, these small particles enter the bloodstream unaltered. They dock on the artery walls and cause lesions. These lesions are actual damage to the cardiovascular system walls. Cholesterol sticks to these lesions as an attempt, by the body, to protect the injury. Autopsies commonly show these lesions in children as young as 10 years old.
Pasteurization began in 1932. Prior to that heart disease was very uncommon. Since then it has skyrocketed in every country that pasteurizes milk.
They also homogenize milk products, which kills pathogens; but it also kills the enzymes that the body needs to digest it, and the beneficial bacteria that the body needs.
Dairy cattle are now fed antibiotics, and other drugs to increase milk production. Both are found in the milk. We are bombarded with antibiotics in meat products and from our doctors as well. The damage to our immune system is very great.
I encourage you to investigate this on your own.

thank you I have been doing the happy dance for almost a month now… another month to see if it stays that low without any meds at all then will be considered cured..

Glad to hear it Virginia. But "cured" as a type 2?

Cured means you can go back to eating the way you did before your Dx and it not affect your BG numbers that much. My A1c is 5.5 last May. I have to watch what I eat or my numbers go into Diabetic range again.

I believe I'll have to watch what I eat for the rest of my life. I don't consider it a cure, but I do control it without diabetes meds and I am happy about that.

And if you are indeed cured like you don't have to watch what you eat, I will be happy for you too! Praing the best for you!

I never plan on going back to the way I was eating before.. I LOVE the lower carb diet and have lost over 50 pounds soooo just gave away all the "fat" clothes and refuse to gain again, so numbers should stay in the proper range.. I never get on a scale anymore I just use my favorite pair of jeans.. when they fit snug back to being even more careful ..lol.. sooo happy to hear that you have got to stay off diabetic meds for so long.. gives me hope.. guess "cured" really wasn't the word I was looking for just happy to not have to take pills

I am certainly happy that you don't either, as I am pretty much in the same boat with regards to my diabetes. Now if I could only handle some of my other medical challenges in the same way I'd really be a happy camper..

now that is a statement I can totally relate to.. just had my 4th spinal surgery in Nov. spent 2 weeks in the hospital then almost 6 weeks in rehab…Thank God for inventing water aerobics so I can still exercise… but walking without aids of any sort ( at least for now) but after meeting people in rehab a lot worse off then me it made me happy for what I have and try not to think about the things I DON'T have
I told all the kids,g-kids and gg kids "forget the past you can't change it, forget the future you cant predict it, forget the present cause I didn't get you one"

My state has passed a law, that " raw milk" can be purchased by certain dairy farmers. I have family that raises dairy grass fed only cows, and once a year we get "raw milk" from the family. Any one in our state, who purchases "raw milk" does so by their own choice and can not hold any one accountable if they should be come ill.
