75 % Of Earths Population Is Lactose Intolerant For A Reason: Dairy Is Harmful

I was never a “milk lover.” The movie, “Jaws”, the original, was released when I was perhaps eight or nine years old. There is a scene where the shark is captured and its belly slit open for the contents to fall out onto the deck.  dairy is unhealthyThe white internal goop which flowed from the shark, along with a shoe, a license plate and other tidbits, was enough to turn me off  drinking milk ever again. Thank you Spielberg!! My health is forever grateful.

75 % Of Earths Population Is Lactose Intolerant For A Reason: Dairy Is Harmful

 

 

Lactose intolerance is when the body does not produce enough lactase to break down lactose, a sugar found in milk and many other milk derived dairy products. The enzyme responsible for breaking down lactose is lactase, an enzyme found on the wall of the intestines. Lactase breaks down lactose (the sugar found in milk) into galactose and glucose. The activity of lactase becomes reduced after breastfeeding, at that point the body no longer needs as much lactase. Not to mention a human mothers milk is much different from the milk of a cow. The reduction of lactase activity after infancy is a genetically programmed event.  Approximately 75 % of Earths population is lactose intolerant for a reason, that’s because it’s perfectly natural. The statistics vary from race to race and country to country but overall they show an abnormal amount of individuals who qualify. In some asian countries, 90 of the population is lactose intolerant. We are the only species on the planet that drinks milk from another species. Since lactase’s only function is the digestion of lactose in milk, most mammal species experience a dramatic reduction in the activity of the enzyme after weaning. Lactase persistence in humans has evolved as an adaptation to the consumption of non-human milk and dairy products consumed beyond infancy. Our diet has changed a lot, and as a result some of our genes have adapted, but it’s not an easy process. This is why most humans are lactose intolerant. Every other species weans and then never drinks milk again for the rest of their lives, and because of that we don’t have an enzyme to break down the sugar in milk. But during human evolution, some humans experienced a mutation in the LTC gene, the lactase gene, these mutations allow us to process lactose as adults. With over 75 percent of humans on the planet unable to properly process it, it is evidence enough that we are not doing what is natural and in accordance with our bodies. Our natural state is to be lactose intolerant. Undigested lactose in the small intestine acts like an osmotic agent, causing water and electrolytes to be pulled into the intestines, which results in diarrhea, bloating and gassiness. The body struggles and compensates, as well as protects itself by developing coping methods for our unnatural habits. Continue the article here
