While the dairy industry tries hard to make it seem that chocolate milk is a healthy choice, it is actually very harmful to your child and you.
6 Shocking Reasons to Never Give Your Child Chocolate Milk
|Drinking choco milk can cause you this.|
The milk protein, casein, can irritate the immune system and stimulate mucus production, worsening allergy symptoms. This is why milk consumption is associated with recurrent childhood ear infections, eczema, chronic bronchitis, asthma, and sinus conditions. Even those who are not allergic to milk and are spared digestive problems may find that symptoms related to these conditions improve when they eliminate milk and milk products.
Loaded with Sugar
|Can't let your body take this much sugar.|
Chocolate milk is loaded with sugar. One small carton of chocolate milk contains 30 grams of sugar. That is more than a can of soda. Sugar is extremely toxic and can cause heart disease, metabolic syndrome and cancer. Sugar causes insulin resistance, which leads to metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Scientists believe that having constantly elevated insulin levels can contribute to cancer. Additionally, sugar increases the concentration of bile acids in stool and bacterial enzymes in the colon, which can modify bile to produce cancer-causing compounds and colon cancer.
High Fructose Corn Syrup
|Chocolate milk can destroy your sanity.|
High fructose corn syrup has been found both to cause liver damage and to promote obesity. HFCS is also linked to destroying the brain, and oftentimes contains low levels of brain-destroying mercury.
|This is what carrageenan looks like. GROSS!|
Many scientific, peer-reviewed studies found that food-grade carrageenan can cause gastrointestinal inflammation, ulcerations, lesions and even colon cancer in laboratory animals. Additionally, recent studies funded by the American Diabetes Association have linked the consumption of food-grade carrageenan to insulin resistance and glucose intolerance in mice.
|Can't let these stuff enter your body.|
Artificial flavors are made from hundreds of chemicals. Some artificial flavors use ingredients from petroleum. They can contain substances such as hydrolyzed vegetable protein or monosodium glutamate which you will not find on packages. Unfortunately, food manufacturers do not have to disclose the actual flavoring ingredients.
Does NOT Build Strong Bones BUT Depletes Calcium
|You might get broken limbs if you drink choco milk!|
Did you know that the calcium in cows milk is hardly absorbable by people and, and in fact, depletes calcium supplies in the bones. Amy Lanou Ph.D., nutrition director for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine in Washington, D.C., states that:
“The countries with the highest rates of osteoporosis are the ones where people drink the most milk and have the most calcium in their diets. The connection between calcium consumption and bone health is actually very weak, and the connection between dairy consumption and bone health is almost nonexistent.”
