The first generation to not be nursed by their mothers

    In the very long human history babies have always begun their life with the natural milk from their mother. This changed following World War II for two reasons. The industrialization of food production and subsequent advertising campaigns that made it socially unacceptable to nurse your baby. Whenever I question the power of the media, I remind myself that the media stopped mothers from nursing their babies. It doesn't get any deeper than that.

    I feel strongly that the introduction of baby formula, post WWII, made from Carnation Evaporated Milk and Kayro Corn Syrup, caused me to be diagnosed with 'Colic'. Colic was intense abdominal pain, diarrhea, gas, and vomiting. I still suffer these consequences if I eat anything containing dairy products. 

    The common treatment for babies with Colic from the late 1940's-1970's was to give them cereal at a month old, months earlier than babies are give grain now.The intestines were not developed enough to digest grain and I believe that this threw the digestive tract and the immune system into overdrive and consequently created allergies to dairy and gluten that has shown up in the generations that consumed industrialized food in conditions such as: Irritable Bowl Syndrome, Colitis, Crohn's Disease, Celiac Disease,  and more.

    To continue to produce milk cows are given hormones that keep them in a false state of having a baby calf, not only does this shorten the cows life by more than half, but it leads to infection which is why cows are on a constant diet of anti-biotics. Both the hormones and anti-biotics are passed on to their dairy products. 

    It is tough to give up all dairy products, eating out is challenging. I know that I couldn't imagine breakfast without cereal and milk or eggs without cheese. Lunch? Dinner? My favorite foods were loaded with dairy. When I started eliminating dairy the cheese substitutes were like eating a plastic bag, no flavor and I could feel them in my stomach for days. It's easy for me now. The substitutes I use are so good that they have passed as better than 'regular' when served to guests and clients. In fact, I'm constantly told that my ..blah,blah... "is the best they've ever had, ever!"

    Could it be that the normal dairy products are heavy and high in fat and leave one with a heavy bloated feeling? Or could it be that more people are lactose intolerant than we ever imagined? It doesn't matter, I know that the way I eat is healthier and even tastes better than high end restaurant meals. I have more energy that is easy to access, after I eat I don't feel sleepy or bloated or guilty. The food I eat is easy to digest and absolutely delicious. I invite you try my recipes, my grandparents and parents had farms and taught me everything that I gratefully pass on to you.

    가 말하길Can I just say what a relief to secarh out somebody who actually is aware of what theyre talking about on the internet. You undoubtedly know the way to bring a problem to light and make it important. Extra folks need to read this and perceive this side of the story. I cant believe youre no more standard because you undoubtedly have the gift.

    This makes more sense than anything I've heard so far.

    I found this site while looking for information about Autism, my son's friends mothers have told me that when they changed their children's diet they saw an immediate improvement. I love everything I'm reading and it's made things seem manageable to me, I'm going to make the change. Thank you Elaine

    The whole milk thing is weird, and now I have a lot of friends allergic to soy. Why did it become unfashionable to nurse your baby? And why are people weird about nursing, it seems like no one thinks you should cater to your baby's needs when the baby is clearly demanding food, instead of being comfortable with the most basic instinct people act like being uncomfortable is normal behavior.
