New surgical procedure helps with chronic sinus infections, but avoiding cow's milk is the real cure

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

Researchers have announced that long-term sufferers of chronic rhinosinusitis (or just "sinusitis" for short) can be helped by a surgical procedure that can be performed on an outpatient basis. That's great new, but the real story is that most sufferers of chronic sinus conditions could be free of all symptoms through dietary changes alone. The primarily culprit? Cow's milk. Cow's milk produces a strong allergic response in the human body -- especially adults -- which results in the body creating layers of mucous in order to protect itself from the substance. This protective response by the body is frequently diagnosed as asthma or sinus infections. It becomes "chronic" when people continue to drink cow's milk and consume dairy products on a daily basis. Removing cow's milk from the diet reverses these symptoms in the vast majority of people, although it often takes 30 days or more for the symptoms to disappear completely. That's right: people who have been diagnosed with asthma are often suffering from nothing more than an allergic response to milk.

So why does cow's milk cause such troubling health effects in the first place? The answer is simple: cow's milk is baby food for calves. When humans drink it, they are consuming a cross-species liquid that isn't meant for humans and especially isn't meant for adults. Baby cows thrive on the liquid, but humans do very poorly on it. That's because cow's milk is nutritionally imbalanced for human consumption: it has proteins that are difficult to digest, it's low in brain-boosting essential fatty acids like GLA, it's low in important minerals like magnesium, and virtually every single gallon of non-organic milk purchased in the United States is contaminated with pus. That's right: pus is allowed in cow's milk you buy at the grocery store. Tests show that the levels of pus in cow's milk routinely exceed those allowed by federal law. Also found in cow's milk: blood, hormones, bacteria and of course homogenized milk fats due to the processing of milk.

There's a lot more to the story on milk, but you get the idea: cow's milk is bad for humans. People with chronic sinus conditions could avoid drugs and surgery by simply avoiding milk.

Oh, and by the way, for those worried about getting their daily requirement of calcium, don't believe the milk industry hype. A cup of cooked quinoa has more calcium than a cup of milk, and if you really want to get a healthy dose of bone building minerals like calcium and magnesium, take chlorella supplements.
