Well I have been saying for many years that milk is not the best choice of food for adults, especially when it is pasteurized and homogenized. These processes alter the molecular structure of the milk and can contribute too many digestive problems.
Now new light is being shed on another milk problem – low fat milk and products made with low fat milk. Why isn’t low fat good? Healthy even?
David Ludwig of Harvard says no also. We all are aware of the problems connected with high sugar drinks and the effect this elevated sugar intake can cause in the body at many levels. What has not been exposed is the level of sugars in low fat milk. When the fat is removed so is most of the flavor. In order to solve that problem the food industry adds powdered milk to the mix, which contains very high amounts of sugars. According to Ludwig, low fat milk is as bad for us as the sugary soft drinks.
Instead always use a full fat milk, yogurt or other dairy products.
The fat makes the food taste better and they contain far less sugar, which in the case of milk sugars, can be at the root of allergies, digestive disorders, and the dozens of health risks of a high sugar diet.
