This episode of DNews is brought to you by
Audible. Milk does a body, something something. But
even if you GOT it, do you WANT it? Television has run commercials asking if we
have milk and if we are drinking milk for our strong bones, but science is starting
to look at this and say, “hold up.” A study from Uppsala University in Sweden looked at
how the amount of milk consumed can affect health in the long term, and according to
their results, mo milk, mo problems. Their study, which followed over 100,000 men
and women aged 39 to 79 years. The women were followed for 20 years, and then men for 11,
on average. Overall, their results found that people who drank three or more glasses of
milk per day died at almost TWICE the rate of those who drank less than one. So… that’s
huge. The study, published in BMJ, says the reason for the increase in death MAY be because
galactose // which SOUNDS like an awesome bad guy from a 90s comic book, but it’s not,
it’s a simple sugar found in milk. They picked that sugar because of a separate study, where
galactose was given to animals and they died faster thanks to oxidative stress and inflammation. Basically, according to their findings, the
risk of death rose 15 percent for every glass of milk consumed per day, and for women it
actually INCREASED bone fractures, not decreased. BEFORE YOU FREAK OUT AND DUMP YOUR DAIRY.
Cheese and yogurt and stuff might be okay. They have little or no galactose. Their study
also found women who ate fermented cheese products were LESS likely to die. All this aside, the researchers ended their
study by saying one of my favorite phrases: MORE RESEARCH IS NEEDED. I quote, “People
should not change their dietary habits because of this study.” It’s correlation, not causation. This got me thinking, why do we even drink
moo juice in the first place? We’re not the ONLY species on the planet to drink another
species milk. There are nursing baby animals that drink milk from adopted lactating parents,
but the thing is… they’re all babies. Most animals stop drinking milk and lose the ability
to digest it as they age. However, another study, also from Uppsala University // the
Swedes drink a lot of milk, I guess // reports ancient Iberian DNA might indicate why we
drink milk at all! The enzyme that allows us to drink milk, lactase, only evolved in
the last 10,000 years, a blink of an eye in biological time. The reason it evolved is because of disaster
— a famine. It was either, adapt or die, and somehow the human body was able to form
lactase persistence — or the ability to digest lactose as an adult. The drinking of milk
would have allowed humans to gather vitamin D and absorb calcium, keeping them alive and
healthy — similar to the newer study, they also say cheese and yogurt are better, mostly
because they’re easier to consume due to lower levels of lactose due to fermentation. Bottom line, maybe think about cutting down
on milk servings and substitute it for some yogurt or cheese instead. too much dairy can
cause health risks like weight gain, diabetes, cancer and osteoporosis. It can also cause
acne, digestive distress, allergies, asthma and more! Dairy is controversial, simply because
so many of us love it, but also because it’s popular consumption in the US is driven by
lobbyists. You have to make your own decisions, so read

  1. im 30+ and i drink 1-2 liters of milk each day and have always done that, im really healthy, no sickness, no diabetes, no overweight, no allergies no nothing, thats go for all in my family. so milk have nothing to do with sickness, its a naturaly healthy drink for us.

  2. Try to test the HP scale difference of milk from hybrid cows and cattle which are not hybrid or milk from game animals.

  3. Cow's milk is for calves, not humans. What happens is the cow is raped and inseminated by farmers, injected with hormones, then after the calf is born, the gender will determine its fate. If male, it gets murdered for veal, and if female, she will suffer her mother's fate (who she was separated from immediately after birth). The mother that was expecting is milked by machines for days, often in unhealthy conditions resulting in blood and pus in the milk. Afterwards she is either forcefully impregnated again or upon reaching an age limit, her life is ended prematurely, having lived a life of isolation, pain, and torment. All because adult humans are still breastfeeding.. from a different species.

  4. there were a studies 1000s years ago that no problems with drinking milk thats why we are still a live till now. your studies now not accurate . sorry

  5. Vegans kill more animals than they realize to harvest a soy bean field and the surrounding areas the farmers have to kill every turtle every ant every squirrel Everett rabbit just to ensure you estrogen filled soybean rice Tofu diet goes undisturbed while you are really wondering if bees aren't going extinct they got kidnapped and now forced into work in the white man's honey slash rice milk factory. Keep eating those Soy beans and while you're all at it don't eat red onions they decrease estrogen you all love that shit. Stay away from broccoli and cauliflower it raises terrifying testosterone. There's good quality meat still being sold you just have to know where. Grass has vitamin d. Cows eat grass. I eat them and my stomach thanks their sacrifice

  6. My grandma lived to be 99 and drank alot of milk and ate sour cream cottage cheese she grew up on a farm as a kid then when married her husband worked for a dairy.. her diet consist of mainly cheese yogurt, dairy. When she died she had a heart attack but only 1 month b4 her 100th bday.

  7. Is searched "Milk" in YouTube to know why the hecking heck it tastes so good….
    Instead I found this video.
    Thanks a lot

  8. People confuse observational study and experimental study. I don't even find an experimental study on how drinking milk kills you.

  9. Most Milk drinking people are most often running on autopilot mode of mind and are fat obese and eat lots of fast food. When people make a diet, they tend to eat less dairy because of all the other "super foods" they have to eat. And the vegan people make health their first priority. Milk(A2) with exercise is a Body Builder.

  10. the whole video I was distracted by Abraham Lincoln on your T-shirt 😂😂 whatever I was drinking milk while watching the video and I assure you that it was very tasty😂😂

  11. I love milk and have drink it all my life, however i'm having lots of colon issues and don't know if it has to do with dairy products. But i stopped drinking milk for a month and got much better.. for example no bloating no constipation and no rectal pain. I think and im not a doctor that milk and colon problems are related in my personal experience, however everyone is different but if you have colon problems and issues stop drinking milk and you will be surprise of the results

  12. Prepare Kefir , because Kefir bacteria eats up all the galactose & lactose in the milk, so even if you have inflammatory issues with milk,

    Kefir makes the milk low lactose almost lactose free . Works for me.

  13. Dairy is actually worse for you than cigarettes and should be treated like the dangerous poison that it is. Most adults are lactose intolerant and consuming it destroys your digestive system. Cheese is actually the worst for you, because your body isn't designed to digest sticky slime. Nothing a human would naturally eat is even remotely similar to cheese. Think of your body like a machine. Now imagine putting melted cheese between all the gears in that machine. Notice how the gears dont turn very well anymore because theyre clogged. Thats what you do to your body every time you eat cheese.

  14. I can drink 3 liters of milk a day or more no problem. It's dangerous to be alive, you could potentially die.

  15. can't Eat or Drink Shit… every Human being is gonna meet there Demise one day so what the hell..I love Milk it tastes great it may give me Gas but I don't care

  16. Milk and dairy products: good or bad for human health? An assessment of the totality of scientific evidence.

    There is scepticism about health effects of dairy products in the public, which is reflected in an increasing intake of plant-based drinks, for example, from soy, rice, almond, or oat.


    This review aimed to assess the scientific evidence mainly from meta-analyses of observational studies and randomised controlled trials, on dairy intake and risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, cancer, and all-cause mortality.


    The most recent evidence suggested that intake of milk and dairy products was associated with reduced risk of childhood obesity. In adults, intake of dairy products was shown to improve body composition and facilitate weight loss during energy restriction. In addition, intake of milk and dairy products was associated with a neutral or reduced risk of type 2 diabetes and a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, particularly stroke. Furthermore, the evidence suggested a beneficial effect of milk and dairy intake on bone mineral density but no association with risk of bone fracture. Among cancers, milk and dairy intake was inversely associated with colorectal cancer, bladder cancer, gastric cancer, and breast cancer, and not associated with risk of pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer, or lung cancer, while the evidence for prostate cancer risk was inconsistent. Finally, consumption of milk and dairy products was not associated with all-cause mortality. Calcium-fortified plant-based drinks have been included as an alternative to dairy products in the nutrition recommendations in several countries. However, nutritionally, cow's milk and plant-based drinks are completely different foods, and an evidence-based conclusion on the health value of the plant-based drinks requires more studies in humans.


    The totality of available scientific evidence supports that intake of milk and dairy products contribute to meet nutrient recommendations, and may protect against the most prevalent chronic diseases, whereas very few adverse effects have been reported.


  17. Milk ruined my life. I loved milk since childhood but my twin brother doesn't. Now we are 30 years old. My immune system is too bad, i have hay fever, I get tired easily, I have digestive problems and i get acidity to easily. My twin brother is very healthy.
