Not Milk… Go for Lean and Green!

Not Milk… Go for Lean and Green!

Pure, organic, WHOLE (raw preferably) milk is superior

to conventional whole OR skim milk.

Here is why:

  1. Nonfat/Skim milk is overly processed with cancer causing chemicals which lead to an increase rate of prostate cancer.
  2. Conventional milk and added/elevated estrogen hormones have scientists very concerned about hormone dependent cancers, i.e. testes, prostate and breast.

Milk in general is NOT the best source of calcium for children. Studies find children that are milk drinkers have an increase risk of advanced prostate cancer.


Better sources of calcium, phosphorus, vitamin D can be found in a whole foods diet:

  • Wild caught cold water fish-cod, halibut, salmon, sardines, anchovies

  • Legumes- lentils, black beans, green beans, peanuts, aduki beans, black, garbonzo and soy beans.  Organic Beans in the can still have all of their minerals!

  • Nuts/seeds: almonds, brazil nuts, walnuts, pecans, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, filberts/hazelnut

  • Greens: Kale, collards, spinach, salad greens, turnip, dandelion, mustard

  • Fruits: oranges

  • Vegetables: brocoli

  •  Occasional organic, hard cheeses, organic whole yogurts, goat cheese

  • Organic Black strap molasses, nutritional yeast, nut butters

Calcium supplements can contain high levels of LEAD which is severely damaging to children’s developing neurological system.  Please remember Children need more than just calcium for healthy bones. Trace minerals (boron, selenium), silica, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamins D, A and K are all important in calcium absorption and building of healthy bones and teeth.
