Got Milk?

Tyler Durden's picture


As corn prices have rolled over and even the World Bank worries over the impact of financial crises and food prices, we present, with little comment, one of the more staple sustenances - now trading at record high prices... transitory we presume?


Seems like milk is oddly correlation to periods of (actual or anticipation of) central bank largesse (green arrows)...

 No, speaking for myself, the cost of grains and feed is way up, many of us are slaughtering animals to reduce costs.  Look at the bright side, buy a freezer because tenderloin will get cheaper (for a little while anyway, depending on your proximity to the slaughter house).

I never drink milk and I'm even skinnier than her. It's cetainly not in the paleo diet. We did not evolve sucking on cow teats. We evolved eating cows and plants. Milk is for babies.

Thu, 10/04/2012 - 16:06 | 2857083 Temporalist
Temporalist's picture

Did it ever occur to people that say milk is for babies that the reason babies stop consuming it is because the teets dry up and the mother cannot be relied upon to always feed the child throughout its life so it must be "pushed out of the nest" so to speak for its own best interest in the event that the parent or milk source dies?  If it were possible to have a never ending supply of milk in nature one would think it would still be consumed.

Yes I understand that the point is that nature dictates the mother, in normal circumstances, ween the child off because if the parent dies the child will not be self sufficient.  Also it is a drain on the mother who must consume more than normal (non-lactating) for her own sustainance and the child's food supply.

Horomone jacked technological milk is not for any human that wishes to maintain long term health.  Need bioavialable calcium?  Try greens.  I use milk/dairy for cooking and other food prep, but it has to be organic if commercial.  If I know the farmer and can trust his practice, it does'nt Have to be "organic".

Actually, Mark_BC, you are wrong. 

Northern Europeans (and their descendants) and certain other populations in Asia and Africa, after almost 10,000 years of animal husbandry, HAVE evolved to drink milk, as the presence in their adult digestive systems of the lactase enzyme proves.  One might as well say that it is not natural for humans to eat meat simply because our ancestors of 3,000,000 likely did not.  It is also not "natural" to eat an almost exclusively meat-and-fat diet as the Eskimos of the high arctic have been doing for thousands of years, in very good health --- but they are similarly evolved to eat that kind of diet (which would likely kill you or me quite rapidly, as the Western high-carbohydrate diet is doing to them today).

Thu, 10/04/2012 - 16:24 | 2857178 WillyGroper

can't say the same for eastern europeans. Jack LaLane always said adults don't need milk. I never knew why until I read that animal protein turns the body acidic. Being acidic leaches calcium from the bones.

The acidity of drinking milk causes a net negative calcium balance as your body uses calcium salts to buffer.

Dr. Fuhrman cherry-picks his science, just like so many, many diet gurus.


There are countless studies out there, and each diet guru, just like each finance guru, cherry-picks the data that will fit his/her construct, and sell it to anyone who will subscribe.


It's mostly all bullshit.

Bitchin Bear's picture

While I certainly don't profess to be on par with Dr. Fuhrman there are many other factors involved in calcium being leached from the bones - according to studies I have read there is a fine balance beween calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D, and to a lesser extent phosphorous.  Get one of these minerals and/or vitamins out of whack and you are in trouble.  What no one will tell you is that the pasturized crap milk we have been drinking for the past 80 years or so is what's killing us.  Pasturization is known to change the basic protein structure of milk rendering it incapable of being digested. If you feed pasturized milk to a calf it will die!  If you are a milk lover like me what's the answer?- Raw, full fat milk or no milk at all.  Many people diagnosed with lactose intolerance are able to digest raw milk. Check it out at The milk lobby is one of the most powerful lobbying groups around.  Look it up - too much calcium in the blood can lead to kidney stones and plaque formation in the arteries.  It all boils down to eating the way nature intended - no boxes, no cans, no processing.

Major reduction in the milk production in Ireland these past few months because of the wettest summer on record.

And it needs to be very very wet and cold to stop the grass growing.

Milk is thee major food product in the south of the country. (Golden Vale) -  much of it turned to Butter in the Summer months.

Y2012 / 2011

Y2012 August :  -5%

          July     : -8.6 %

          June   : -1.9 %

The UK probally had negative milk figures this summer also. ( very intensive north atlantic jetstream)

September has been a fine month but the best months for Milk production is May & June.

Lets face it...meats....cereals...dairy products are all going up big.....and I would say that is 20% of the average Joe´s budget...add in Gasoline and heating oil...well..we are talking a slower economy as much less disposable income....then throw in wage Joe´s new job pays less...oops....we got problems...politicians better start cutting now...or its really going to piss off the masses in the future...but if they print...and I think they will...then it will piss off the rest of the a reserve currency...the holders and users of the paper do not like to see it shrink in their hands..

Wait...didn't I read something about the expiration of the Farm Bill affecting dairy farmers long before it affected crop growing farmers? Something about the bill still covering crops planted in 2012, but going into effect right away with the dairy farmers causing a substantial increase in the cost.

Scientists reported 85% of the strontium in kids bones after chernobyl came from milk and eggs. Nice concentrators, those grass and grain eating cows and chickens.


So this doesnt affect me. Havent had dairy since Fukushima. Hope it goes higher, people shouldnt drink radiating milk.

Hillary Clinton got the FDA to suspend all testing of fish products from Japan in one of her diplomatic efforts after FUkashema to help their economy. Both Japan and teh US supress true information about radiation. I do not trust any improtant government information.

Milk I can do without. 

Cheese, however...that's another story.

Again, Got MILF!

Actually, I'm surprised Bloomberg has not chimed in about the health risks of milk.
