  • Any studies showing deleterious effects of dairy?

    I know dairy is frowned upon in the paleo/primal community, and Robb Wolf talks about it causing inflammation (and possibly cancer?). Can anyone point me to a scientific study that shows the bad effects dairy has on us?

    Thanks!

    Actually dairy is not frowned upon by the paleo/primal community some people just dont recommend consuming it if you cannot tolerate or it causes adverse effects.

      Here you go: http://healthydietsandscience.blogsp...ath-rates.html

      Now go and enjoy some dairy. In this world nothing is good for you and once you start nitpicking every detail then you can no longer eat anything without being obsessive about its minuscule effects on your body. I bet most people who go down this path tell themselves they're feeling queasy after eating a dairy product just because someone told its bad for whatever reason. Milk contain high quality protein, fat and carbs.

      There is also a study out there that shows milk is good for losing weight. I cannot find it at this time, but it was a legit study.

        Both naturopaths that my coworkers and I have gone said the same thing: NO DAIRY.

          And why is this? (Of course you will have to link some studies.)

            The 'dairy causes mucous' thing has been a mantra for years. I did give it up at one point and noticed no difference. It's true that many people are lactose intolerant, or somewhat sensitive, and sometimes the results of change can take a while and be quite subtle to identify.

            Here's a useful overview

            I have read somewhere that pasteurization and homogenization affect the size of the fat particles
            This one looks interesting but I don't have a pdf reader on this computer. Long url!

            Fyi if you google something, go to the top of the page where you'll see 'more' with a blue arrow, under that is 'scholar' which will take you to studies. For dairy try words like lactose, homogenization, gut permeability = and if interested in gut permeability ( which leads to autoimmune issues) try including the words tight junctions. The tight junctions are sort of the glue between the cells.

                I have noticed a tremendous difference in my body off the dairy -- so much so it's been surprising. Eye-opening.

                  ROFL. Gimme something to research and I'm a happy camper. The more obscure the better.

                    The study was sponsored by the National Dairy Council and if one reads it, milk and dairy products are not responsible for weight loss, the vitamin D contained in dairy products is.

                    Researchers found that vitamin D levels independently affected weight loss success and in line with previous research, milk and milk products were the top contributors to vitamin D in the diets of the study participants.
                    Of course, the National Dairy Council wants people to buy milk and dairy products to get their intake of vitamin D.

                      I get a bit of sinus issues from dairy, but if an elimination diet doesn't help anything, I'd say go for it.

                        I eat dairy and I'm fine. It actually helps me stick to primal eating because I have a hard time getting enough fat otherwise. And, a good piece of cheese is a "treat" that makes it easier for me to stay away from carbs and sweets. I try to only buy dairy products that are hormone-free. Don't drink milk, but I do eat cheese...again, no hormones, and from the farmer's market if possible. I think it all depends on your body's reaction to it. Some people can tolerate it, others not so well.
