In Topic: What Form(S) Of Dairy Can Your Body Tolerate?

Whether or not hormones have been given to the animals, there are hormones in milk that aren't good for adults or acne.  In any country. 

 

Still, it irks me that some people can enjoy the occasional dairy-based treat, and people like me break out from it in just about any form.

 

Well I can't have citrus unless I want to break out in cysts.

And The growth hormones given to the animals are not the only hormones to be concerned about in dairy.  It both contains and stimulates growth hormones intended to make babies grow.  And those hormones have negative affects on bodies that are no longer growing. Including negatively affecting several factors involved in acne formation.

 

The fact that growth hormones and GMOs are allowed in our food, but banned in that of other countries, says a lot--and nothing good--about most politicians and corporations in the U.S.

 

Yes it does. And the government controlled by the corporations. So buy as little as possible from big corporations and as much as you can from small local producers. 

 

But that's besides the point. Whether or not hormones have been given to the animals, there are hormones in milk that aren't good for adults or acne.  In any country.

Also, cooling after cooking lowers the glycemic impact. i.e. pasta eaten cold in a salad has a lower GI.  

 

There are loads of ways preparation affects GI as this article explains:  http://www.montignac...ycemic-indexes/

I don't notice any issue with any dairy.  Still I limit it. I don't drink milk. And I mostly only have small amounts of fermented dairy such as yogurt and flavorful cheeses which I treat as a condiment, not a food group.  

 

Rules of thumb: Fermented is better than not. Full fat better than skimmed. Grass fed is better than grain fed.  Goat better than cow, etc. 

 

As for the hard cheese mentioned above, aged cheeses are only a problem for those intolerant to amines which develop over time. And those people should try to consume only the freshest foods period, not just dairy. 

 

Also, lactose intolerance is not the only issue.  It's not uncommon to be allergic for example. And that's just one more of many reasons to limit dairy.

Beta sitosterol is a component of plant fats, btw. There's a ton in an avocado. nutritiondata has a breakdown of fats in some foods. 

 

I took beta sitosterol supplements for a while and didn't notice anything significant, but I don't recall what I was hoping to improve at that time.  I think I was on this board, and my skin was mostly clear from diet before I ever came here. So perhaps it was hirsutism.
