Milk for me growing up as a child was life! In cornflakes, golden morn, and even tea I looked for an excuse to put it in. Admittedly I took it in excess, which for me wasn’t a bad thing, but now I know better. While milk is a part of almost everyone’s daily breakfast and is among the most calcium-rich foods you can eat, there are other substances in milk that may warrant some moderation. As there are various side effects to large consumption of milk.
Weight Gain and Calories: By increasing the consumption of this dairy product, it unknowingly makes the body take up more weight. As much as the calcium is good for the body, the calories that come with milk are not.
Cholesterol: A steadily increased consumption of this particular dairy food allows for increased levels of cholesterol in the body. The result of this would be a clogging of the blood vessels which in turn leads to untold health hazards.
Increases Chances of Diabetes: Milk contains lactose, a type of sugar. Like any other carbohydrate-containing food, it may increase your blood sugar levels. To avoid this story that touches, best to reduce or cut it out of your meals completely.
Chronic Inflammation: Dairy is highly acidic, despite it containing high amounts of calcium that acts as an alkaline agent by nature. Milk is rich in natural acids that can cause calcium deposits to build up and potentially cause arthritis and inflammation in the body. It also doesn’t necessarily keep our bones strong as we once believed.
