Blood Type AB - Inch 3

Blood Type AB

Inch 3 - Remove Unnecessary Dairy

What is unnecessary dairy?  It's dairy that is EASY for you to eliminate.  For example - in your coffee, as a topping for a salad or baked potato, etc...

1. Move to an almond or coconut creamer instead of half-n-half or Coffee Mate. 

2. Start buying coconut milk or almond milk instead of cows milk.

3.  Stop drinking a "glass of milk."  We have been conditioned to believe that we should drink more milk.  Take a look at some of these frightening facts about milk and see if you still feel the same way:

  • In observational studies both across countries and within single populations, higher dairy intake has been linked to increased risk of prostate cancer (cited in [2]).
  • Observational cohort studies have shown higher dairy intake is linked to higher ovarian cancer risk (cited in [2]).
  • Cow’s milk protein may play a role in triggering type 1 diabetes through a process called molecular mimicry[3].
  • Across countries, populations that consume more dairy have higher rates of multiple sclerosis[4].
  • In interventional animal experiments and human studies, dairy protein has been shown to increase IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor-1) levels. Increased levels of IGF-1 has now been implicated in several cancers[5].
  • In interventional animal experiments[6] and human experiments[7], dairy protein has been shown to promote increased cholesterol levels (in the human studies and animal studies) and atherosclerosis (in the animal studies).
  • The primary milk protein (casein) promotes cancer initiated by a carcinogen in experimental animal studies[8].
  • D-galactose has been found to be pro-inflammatory and actually is given to create animal models of aging[1].
  • Higher milk intake is linked to acne[9].
  • Milk intake has been implicated in constipation[10] and ear infections (cited in [2]).
  • Milk is perhaps the most common self-reported food allergen in the world[11].
  • Much of the world’s population cannot adequately digest milk due to lactose intolerance.
  • 4.  Some dairy is also beneficial for Type AB – especially cultured dairy such as Yogurt and kefir.  Make sure you purchase organic when possible.
