I’m a little late to the game in reading this New York Bestseller titled “Skinny Bitch”. (It was published a few years ago) Better late than never though. Right now I’m only about half way through the book and it’s already changed the way I look at food.
Got osteoporosis? Researchers at Harvard, Yale, Penn State, and the National Institutes of Health have studied the effects of dairy intake on bones. Not one of these studies found dairy to be a deterrent to osteoporosis. On the contrary, a study funded by the National Dairy Council itself revealed that the high protein content of milk actually leaches calcium from the body. These findings are consistent with many others that blame milk not only for osteoporosis, but also acne, anemia, anxiety, ADD, allergies, asthma, obesity, heart disease, diabetes, autism, and multiple cancers.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone trying to change their diet or lose weight. If you read the book and can still eat meat and dairy products I would be very surprised. The statistics in this book are simply disgusting. We eat garbage.
