Over the past 40 years, the dairy industry has spent billions of dollars on advertising campaigns in order to lure people into buying their products. As a result, people have been led to believe that dairy products are absolutely necessary for daily consumption. The average American consumes 375 pounds of dairy products a year. Cows milk is promoted as the perfect food for humans, and especially for our children. However, this is far from the truth. According to a recent research, a single glass of pasteurized milk can contain a toxic chemical cocktail of 20 painkillers, antibiotics, and growth hormones.
