Are You Still Drinking Milk?

Video Transcript:

So here’s another daily tip from your friendly local dermatologist.

If you’re still drinking milk, and you’re in your, you know, 20s, 30s or above, and you think you should because it’s healthy, let’s just have a common-sense break here. Do you think it’s still appropriate to be nursing off of your mother’s breast at this age? I think everybody would say no. Then why are you consuming milk? This is not how we either were created or evolved to be, whatever you think.

The dairy industry has spent enormous amounts of money trying to convince you that you should be drinking more milk, and eating more dairy products. It is ridiculous. Dairy has a ton of hormones in it. Hormones that are supposed to be consumed while we are developing, when we’re very young, first year or two of life. We were never made or created or evolved, whatever you believe, to be breastfeeding in our 30s, 40s, and 50s. We’re getting a ton of hormones. And we know that hormones are one of the biggest contributors to acne, as well as all sorts of other problems. So if we’re consuming a bunch more hormones from mammals that we are very similar to genetically, what do you think that’s doing internally? And it’s not doing anything good.

So please limit your dairy. And some people say, “Well I take skim milk, so there’s not as much fat and stuff.” Skim milk, because of how they fractionated during processing has more hormones than fatty whole milk. So guys, please limit your dairy.
