Does Milk Really Help With Weight
So you think that milk is good for your body? If yes then
you really need to read this article in its entirety. Far too
many people believe like you, and I cannot blame anybody for
this because dairy farmers are responsible for all these. They
claim that milk will help strengthen your bones because of the
presence of calcium in it. They also claim that milk will give

Obviously, they want you to believe this way so that they can
cash in on your gullibility. However, just as some other myths

local store is not pure milk: it has been processed with the

raw milk. Immunoglobulin helps to immune your body against
various diseases. As you can see, milk is in no way beneficial
for you, at least not the one that comes in sealed packets.
After pasteurization is completed, the milk is homogenized
to keep the cream at the bottom. Once this is done, several
synthetic vitamins are added to it in order to make it
'nutritious'. However, remember that synthetic vitamins are not
and can never be substitutes for natural vitamins. They are
man-made chemicals and will do more harm than good to your
2. Milk causes weight gain: Contrary to what you might
believe, milk will actually make you gain weight rather than
lose it. If you are in the habit of drinking milk frequently,
it is not surprising that you have become overweight. As you
drink more and more milk, you will gain more and more
3. Milk causes a host of other diseases: Besides weight
gain, there are a lot of harmful side effects of drinking milk,
such as skin allergies, cancer, acne, arthritis, constipation,
Do you still want to drink milk? I hope not.
