Listening to this Ray Peat Interviewon dairy brought up a question for me. I use to drink milk and it caused me no evident problems. I didn't get mucous or anything. Then in the early 80s, a campaign started against dairy. I swallowed the meme. Later on, the "truth" of the anti-dairy campaign was "verified". I would get somewhat stopped up when I tried to drink milk AND I would get the "runs". I am wondering if, as Peat suggests, I just need to be exposed to it again and that my enzymes will adjust.
Mind you, I am not saying that the above is true for all people. However, it seems to be in my case. So, my question is, did you start out sensitive to dairy or is it something you acquired by halting the use of dairy?
firstly I think milk is kind of separate from a lot of other dairy. I mean, its like milk on one side and then you have yogurt/kefir (fermented milk), cream (just the fat), butter (see cream), yknow? Those three in comparison to just drinking milk seem a lot less problematic to me.
For me, i grew up never drinking a glass of milk in my life. I did after the age of about 27 start eating yogurt and kefir and cottage cheese. I've never had a problem digesting them.
I listened to that interview and I doubt that overcoming a digestive sensitivity to dairy is so easily remedied.
every drop of un sold milk is transformed into non fat dairy powder and added to hot dogs. many people do not know this. they consume hot dogs suffer all because thet didnt know about the milk. the average dog is 3.5 percent dry milk powder.
i was vegan for a while and had issues with cheese when i started eating it again but recently got off doing a whole30 and had zero issues reintroducing dairy (oh, how i missed it!). ive only ever been a milk drinker when ive been pregnant, so i dont know from that.
I became sensitive to dairy around the time I became an adult. When I was about 17 years old, I started breaking out in acne, and in my twenties, it became cystic acne.
I ran out of milk one day and did not have the money to buy more, and wound up not consuming it for about two or three weeks. It was then that my skin cleared up. Thus, in my case, halting the use of dairy fixed my problems rather than exacerbated them.
I have found that now I eat a much more healthful diet, I can tolerate higher-fat dairy in small quantities without breaking out. I have a very sensitive stomach, though, but not from /not/ eating dairy. So, even without spots, I still get a stomach ache if I eat more than a fraction of a portion of dairy.
Oh, and randomly, my body loves goat dairy. I can eat goat's milk yoghurt without any sort of problem. Different enzymes/casein maybe? No idea, but I'm thrilled that I can eat at least that. :)
For me.......dairy has to have context. Saying it has no effect on you is easy when youre not looking for the effect. I guaranttee you it can be found testing.
A1 vs A2 casein protein effect's on the opioid receptors that alter the median forebrain bundles function and modulates its targets.
And by activation/inhibition of a series of intracellular converging cascades in the CNS, leptin and insulin cross-talk via the phosphatidylinositol (PI) 3-kinase pathway. Involves CNS effects of leptin and insulin signaling.
Just because you dont know something does it invalidate the science.
Dairy has consequences. You just need to weigh them in the context of your current biochemistry and cellular terroir.
I love eggs and cream but I have no illusion that chronic use of them could trash my supercomputer in my skull.....
