Organic Milk A New Food

Author : Rubel Zaman

Eliminating unnecessary chemicals and preservatives from all areas of our lives can only be a good thing for physical health, but there is also a certain sense of mental well-being that those who go organic adopt.

More and more families are deciding to choose an organic lifestyle to counteract the imbalances of today’s fast-paced world, and give their children a chemical-free start in life. It has been suggested that preservatives and chemicals in our food and environment have been responsible for an increase in childhood illnesses; from asthma and eczema to the 1.5% increase in childhood cancer in the last 20 years.

An organic lifestyle consists of using products, eating food, wearing clothing and generally living a lifestyle, which is free from the chemicals that are present in so much of the products that we use to live life in the 21st century; devotee’s claim to feel healthier and purer once changing to such a lifestyle.

Some people are choosing to go wholly organic, others, just partly, but it has been proven that an organic lifestyle is beneficial to health and well-being. With followers claiming to have been cured of anything, from psoriasis to cancer, on a range of organic regimes of varying strictness from simply changing to buying organic products to the extreme Gerson diet, which demands that the user live on organic juices (with claims that this has cured conventionally incurable cancers).

There has been some debate over organic milk and if it really is more health-giving than regular milk, or if it is just the sense of moral justice that using free range, organic products gives the user.

Once a child has been weaned from being breastfed by their Mother at the age of about six months (on average), a child will still require milk to ensure that they get the maximum amount of calcium needed for healthy growth of bones and teeth – cows milk has traditionally been the replacement.

But with the introduction and increasing popularity of intensive farming methods in the 21st century dairy allergies have soared contributing to chest and skin problems. Organic advocates question whether this is down to the high diet of antibiotics used to fatten intensively farmed cattle that is having a detrimental affect on children drinking regular milk. For example if a child is exposed to an excess of antibiotics it may produce an adverse reaction in their health or render them immune to the medicine if required for any sickness purpose.

A recent article in the Guardian Newspaper debated the organic milk question and whether it was worth using. It concluded that Donkey’s milk, which is generally organic (donkey’s are not factory farmed, instead put to pasture) is nutritionally best for the human diet. It is also easier to digest due to the different compounds it is made up of.

However, most weaning mothers would probably be averse to feeding their child donkey milk. Having said this, it is probably advisable for parents to stick with organic milk, for even if its advantages have not been categorically proven, it can only be a good thing to feed your child something that definitely has no extra chemical intake.
