So you think milk is good for you?
These days, it seems like almost everybody does. Celebrities, athletes,  and even former president Clinton’s head of Health and Human Services,  Donna Shalala, are all proud to wear the white “milk mustache.” After  all, everyone knows that you need milk to be healthy …
Well, you are actually wrong. So wrong.
1. Milk doesn’t reduce fractures. Contrary to popular belief, eating dairy products has never been shown  to reduce fracture risk. In fact, according to the Nurses’ Health Study  dairy may increase risk of fractures by 50 percent!
2. Less dairy, better bones. Countries with lowest  rates of dairy and calcium consumption (like those in Africa and Asia)  have the lowest rates of osteoporosis.
3. Calcium isn’t as bone-protective as we thought. Studies of calcium supplementation have shown no benefit in reducing fracture risk. Vitamin D appears to be much more important than calcium in preventing fractures.
4. Calcium may raise cancer risk. Research shows  that higher intakes of both calcium and dairy products may increase a  man’s risk of prostate cancer by 30 to 50 percent. Plus, dairy consumption increases the body’s level of insulin-like growth factor - a known cancer promoter.
5. Calcium has benefits that dairy doesn’t. Calcium supplements, but not dairy products, may reduce the risk of colon cancer.
6. Not everyone can stomach dairy. About 75 percent of the world’s population is genetically unable to  properly digest milk and other dairy products — a problem called  lactose intolerance.
Think about the next time you drink a glass of milk, and realize the government doesn’t want your health, it wants your money.

When I was a tween I didn’t consuming anything dairy for years to try and stop my body from growing. Instead I ended up almost 5’11” with a strong large frame. To this day I believe that milk has little/nothing to do with your bones and that it’s mainly genetics. However I do get calcium with my daily multi-vitamin, cheese and occasional dairy.

Zucchini Cakes.

I love zucchini and I reallyyyyyyyyyyyy liked this! Got the recipe from Life’s Ambrosia and doubled it. I used cheesecloth to remove the excess water from the grated zucchini just because I think paper towel would have torn from the moisture and squeezing. Also, instead of using Parmesan cheese, I substituted a total of 1/3 cup Ricotta cheese for the doubled batch (of course, can adjust to your liking). I would make this many more times! =)
