Causes of leukemia are medically unknown. But the medical profession never consider diet. They aren’t trained in nutrition in medical school. However, since diet is so important to our health, this is an insane lack of foresight. Perhaps because the focus in medical school is less on health restoration and more on disease management – through the lucrative sales of drugs.
Why Diet May Be One of The Main Causes Of Leukemia
In America, so probably in most Western countries, dairy products are among the most frequently recalled foods due to contamination with disease causing bacteria. The common ones include E coli, listeria, staphylococci and salmonella. It isn’t just bacteria that infects dairy. It’s viruses, too, in particular bovine leukemia virus.
The spread of this virus is more widespread in factory farmed animals because of the highly unnatural living conditions, the lack of hygiene in the procedures and infected food. The holding tanks contain the milk from one or more herd. If one cow alone is carrying that virus, all the milk can be infected.
Bovine leukemia viruses spread easily to other species through cows milk. Goats, sheep, even chimpanzees have all become ill and died from leukemia, after consumption of cows milk.
Each year the human cases of both leukemia and lymphoma increase.
Each year, through the widespread increase in dairy consumption from misguided government recommendations and advertising, the consumption of dairy increases.
Do We Need Dairy For Health, For Our Bone Health?
The widespread belief that dairy is needed for bone health has no basis in science. Nor in common sense. There is no other mammal who takes milk, let alone milk from another species, beyond infancy.
Enormous animals, with massive bones such as cows, horses, rhinos, elephants, giraffe, all reach maturity in roughly 12 months, by eating nothing but grass and leaves. Clearly grass and leaves contain enough calcium to enable this.
Independent research, even industry funded research, actually show that not only is there no benefit to bone health from consuming dairy, but that harm can be done
The Harm Dairy Consumption Has On Health
Post menopausal women who were advised to consume extra dairy to prevent osteoporosis lost more bone than those who did not increase their consumption.
The high hormone content of dairy foods are likely to interfere with women’s hormones, causing menstrual and menopausal problems.
One research review discovered there is scant evidence that supports dairy consumption in children and adolescent for bone mineralisation.
Another review found that the populations who consume the most dairy have among the highest rates of osteoporosis. Hip fractures increase alongside increased animal protein consumption.
The proteins in milk increase growth hormones, which promote the development and growth of common cancers.
Increased calcium consumption leads to kidney stones.
Dairy is high in fat, protein and sugar and lacks dietary fibre and complex carbohydrates, two essential dietary components needed both for growing children as well as adults.
There are a host of illnesses in every body system brought on by the consumption of dairy, from gastrointestinal, to respiratory, to bone, to skin, to nervous issues to the blood. One cardiologist remarked that he would be out of a job if everyone stopped consuming dairy.
Milk is made for and intended for the baby of the producer, not any other species.
The Homeopathic Approach To Leukemia
I decided to do a broad search in my homeopathic software, comparing leukemia with intolerance from, aggravation from or aversion to milk and dairy products. A huge number of the main remedies were in both categories.
Instinctively, it seems, we know what is bad for us. Sadly, we let our heads and the often persuasive tactics of industry promoted advertising, sway us.
The causes of leukemia may be in your kitchen, on your dining table. Just because old habits die hard, doesn’t mean the causes are unknown. It just means that people are reluctant to make any changes, especially in the industries that would lose out.
As regular readers may know, I have a very poor opinion of the medical profession as a whole. However, when a group of them suggest changing your diet to get off your drugs, I sit up and listen. I have a huge admiration and respect for these MDs. John McDougall is one of them.
