The Unknown Dangers of Cheese

A staple of most people’s diet is cheese.  Besides being extremely high in fat and cholesterol and possessing little fiber or other nutritional value, consumption of cheese can contribute to numerous health disorders including constipation, loss of energy, bad breath, kidney stones, severe kidney infections, heart attacks and other heart-related problems, gout, bone spurs, osteoporosis, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome, diverticulititis, ulcers, breast cancer, lymphoid cancers, lung cancer and colorectal cancer.  Dairy products, and cheese in particular, are likely to be one of the most destructive and debilitating food items we eat.

In 1970, the dairy industry produced 2.2 billion pounds of cheese.  The population of the United States was 203 million, which translates to 10.8 pounds of cheese per person.  By 1990, America’s population had grown to 248 million, but Americans were eating more cheese, 6 billion pounds worth!  That is an average of 24 pounds per person.  In 2011, the U.S. Department of Agriculture determined that the average American consumed about 630 pounds of milk, yogurt, cheese and ice cream per year.  Of that astronomical number, cheese accounted for 31 pounds.  America’s rate of cheese consumption is skyrocketing.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows 750 million pus cells in every liter of milk (about two pounds).  In Europe, regulators allow 400 million pus cells per liter.  Since it takes 10 pounds of milk to make one pound of cheese, a pound of cheese can contain up to 7.5 billion pus cells.  If your American cheese is sliced so that there are 16 slices to a pound, that single slice of American or Swiss can contain over 468 million pus cells.

Eighty percent of milk protein consists of casein – a tenacious glue.  Casein is the glue that is used to hold a label to a bottle of beer.  Try to scrape off one of those labels and then consider the effects of casein in your body.  Casein is also the glue used to construct wood furniture. Casein is a foreign protein and your body reacts to its presence by creating an antibody.  That antibody-antigen reaction creates histamines. Anti-histamines (like Benadryl) are used to counter the effects of histamines.

Mucus and phlegm are produced as a result of cheese consumption.  Mucus congests internal body organs.  Mucus creates phlegm. T he average American lives his or her life with a gallon of mucus clogging the kidney, spleen, pancreas, tracheal-bronchial tree, lungs, thymus, etc.  Imagine not eating cheese or any other dairy product for just six days.  An internal fog will lift from your body as the mucus leaves.  Eat just one slice of pizza on day seven, and 12 to 15 hours later, the mucus will return.

In the name of science, the dairy industry sponsors studies in which people drink milk.  These laboratory subjects then answer surveys about what the insides of their mouths feel like.  Biased dairy scientists then conclude that milk and dairy products cause no mucus.  Florence Griffith Joyner, Olympic gold medalist, had undigested cheese in her stomach 15 hours after eating pizza.  Her internal organs were acutely congested with mucus and her neck revealed finger marks from where she tried to choke herself, gasping for breath.

The Consumers Union and the Wall Street Journal tested milk samples in the New York metropolitan area and found the presence of 52 different antibiotics.  When you eat ice cream, yogurt, and cheese toppings, and you are also consuming antibiotics. Cows are fed chicken feces as supplemental protein. The droppings are baked and sanitized but the heat process does not destroy the hormones in chicken feed.

In February of 1999, the Land of Lakes Company recalled nearly 400,000 cases of cheese products from supermarkets in every one of America’s 50 states. Cheese makes a remarkable culture medium for bacteria, which stay alive for up to six months.  This year’s recall was due to listeria.  Eat listeria and it can take up to 45 days for you to get sick.  Given the prolonged incubation period, most people do not make the connection to the consumption of dairy products.  Cheeses can also contain mycobacterium paratuberculosis, which causes diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome.  Nearly 40 million Americans are afflicted with these conditions.

Humans are the only species to consume breast milk past infancy and we are the only ones to eat products like cheese which are made from the breast milk of another species.  In addition, approximately one-quarter of cheese that is sold in the United States comes from cows treated with Bovine Growth Hormone (BGH).  The FDA approved its use in 1995 despite findings from organizations like the National Institutes of Health that revealed known health risks from its consumption.  Cheese contains highly concentrated amounts of BGH and all other hormones.  One pound of cheese can contain 10 times the amount of hormones as one pound of milk.

The potential health risks associated with the consumption of cheese clearly outweigh its negligible benefits. Despite what many biased and financially motivated organizations would have us believe, dairy products in general, and cheese in particular, should be completely eliminated from our diet.
