Milk Gives You Spots

Posted June 21, 2007 by Marta Holmberg

Yet another study—this time by dermatologist Bill Danby—has concluded…wait for it…Milk gives you spots (whoa, there’s a big surprise!).

It was reported in the Independent that Danby and Dr Walter Willett studied more than 47,000 women to try and demonstrate their theory. The study found no link between food such as chocolate and chips and acne (which are widely blamed for the acne epidemic) but found one between women who had acne and those who had drunk a lot of milk. I’m sorry but duh?!

Dairy is a disaster—what sicko’s idea was it to start drinking the stuff!!?? It makes you fat, gives you big puss filled spots, it’s contaminated with cow’s blood and pus and is linked to allergies, constipation, obesity, cancer, and other diseases. It doesn’t take a genius to work out why—we are the only species on earth that think it’s appropriate to consume the fluid that comes from another mammal’s teat, and we’re certainly the only species that drinks milk into adulthood. Milk is for babies, and what’s more, cow’s milk is for baby cows! It turns a 90 pound baby calf into a 2,000 pound cow in the course of 2 years—you do the math. It’s no surprise that this unnatural substance is wreaking havoc in our bodies.

From another point of view, ladies, how would you feel about being forced to be constantly pregnant for your whole life only to have your babies taken away from you repeatedly and shoved into tiny crates or slaughtered for handbags? Not so nice huh?

Speaking from personal experience, I went vegan about 2 ½ years ago and if you’d have seen a picture of me before that then you’d be forgiven for thinking that you were looking at a picture of a cluster of craters—spots, zits, whatever you want to call them, they’re gross. As soon as I ditched the dairy, lo and behold—smooth as a baby’s bum! Even if I do say so myself (mind you, I have fat knees so it swings and roundabouts, eh?!) Editor’s note: I have no idea what Violet means by this either, in case you’re wondering.

So the next time you reach for a pint of milk in your Sainsbury’s, divert your hand 3 inches to the left and grab the soya—your body, face, taste buds and the animals will thank you!

To sum up:

Bad = Good =

    I am a vegetarian ( still working on vegan) but I have cut down a TON on dairy. I only drink nondairy milk, put nondairy milk in my cereals, in smoothies, eating less dairy cheese, eating less real ice cream and more vegan icecream; basically I barely eat any dairy at all. A few monthes ago I had some acne and uneven skin tone. Now my skin is all clear!!!!! I am also eating much healthier too.

    My brother suggested I would possibly like this web site. He was entirely right. This post actually made my day. You can not consider simply how a lot time I had spent for this info! Thanks!

    Almond milk is a great alternative also. Great source of calcium!

    Actually i can confirm that when i stopped drinking milk and started drinking soy milk my skin did almost within a few weeks get so much clearer and subsequently gets worse again when i eat a load of cheese. Just realised this might be the reason. 😉

    What I don’t understand is why milk is used in everything, how about a new revelation – we use either soya or rice milk instead?!

    Gross. I wasn’t sure about those milk comments before, but now Ive totally gone off milk and onto soya-milk. As I was reading that I had a big bowl of Cap’n Crunch beside me. I looked at the article then over to my milk wide eyed. I grabbed my bowl and dumped the components in the garbage.
    Thanks for the heads up and I can’t wait for the new, beautiful, spotless me to appear =P
