75% of earth population are lactose intolerant: Here’s why

75% of earth population are lactose intolerant

With over 75 percent of humans on the planet unable to properly process lactose (lactose intolerant), it is evidence enough that we are not doing what is natural and in accordance with our bodies.

The reduction of lactase activity after infancy is a genetically programmed event. Lactase is necessary for the digestion of lactose, the main carbohydrate in milk, and without it, milk consumption can lead to bloating, flatulence, cramps and nausea. Those who could not digest milk were once called “lactose intolerant”. They are now regarded as normal, while those adults who retain the enzymes allowing them to digest milk are called “lactase persistent.” The only reason these people produce lactase through adulthood is that some populations have mutations because humans have domesticated livestock that produce milk.

Commercial milk products are often depicted as the “solution” to lactose intolerance.

These products are enzymatically modified to prevent symptoms of lactose maldigestion. But even the lactase pills don’t solve the problem, as individuals can still experience digestive symptoms.
There is no reason for people with lactose intolerance to push themselves to drink milk. Indeed, cow’s milk does not offer any nutrients that cannot be found in a healthier form in other foods.

Dairy industries have got one thing in mind and that’s to sell as much of their products as possible to the consumers.

Inconsequential of the health problems associated with it, these health problems are severe. Surprisingly, milk-drinking does not even appear to prevent osteoporosis, its major selling point. Research shows that calcium losses are increased by the use of animal protein, salt, caffeine, and tobacco, and by physical inactivity. Animal protein leaches calcium from the bones, leading to its excretion in the urine.
However, calcium is readily available in sources other than dairy products. Green leafy vegetables such as broccoli, kale, and collards, are rich in a form of calcium whose absorption is as good or better than that of cow’s milk.

Dairy has now become a key and central battle and it is losing as the world goes plant-based.

A huge increase in milk alternative products like rice milk, almond milk and coconut milk are popping up in grocery stores and convenience stores everywhere.

We most certainly do not need dairy to live a healthy life as marketing campaigns try to convince us. The truth about milk is starting to come to light and many are opting for alternatives

  1. Just listened to Earthling Ed’s video about the dairy industry https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roIWg4ntj9k
    The biggest scam that you’ve never even heard of (how one industry lied to the world)

    Never knew that there was such a high % of people lactose intolerant but now the industry wants to sell those same products to other markets of the world where the lactose intolerance % is even higher than in western countries.

  2. It’s nice to know you are so well advised and educated on your subject. I respect you for that! But I can’t help noticing some of your comments actually still support the drinking of milk: “Green leafy vegetables such as broccoli, kale, and collards, are rich in a form of calcium whose absorption is as good…..(as) that of cow’s milk”. I am not lactose intolerant, I am not hurting when I drink cows milk. My family and I grew up on a Bucks County PA farm and we drank milk all our lives with no negative reactions whatsoever. When I eventually married my wife and during her first, second, and third childbearing experiences her ability to drink milk was a nauseating experience. Hence from child one and on she never drank milk ever again! Today, My wife’s osteoporosis condition is very severe as a result of Dr’s, as well as our own, lack of insight and the consequences of not supplementing her calcium needs through other means. But all that had nothing to do with lactose intolerance. It was strictly the taste of the milk nauseated her. She also grew up on milk daily as a young child. What I’m trying to say is that I think if you had your way, you would do away with all milk products, dairy products, anything that would instigate a lactose intolerance episode/experience. But what about the rest of us who do not fall into that category? I understand your calculations that over 75% of our world’s population is lactose intolerant, in your opinion, of which I assume and presume are substantiated with the sources you referenced. Please understand I have nothing but applaud (but not bowing down to) for your discoveries regarding milk substitutes in order to help 75% of our world’s population live a more stress free life style regarding lactose intolerance. But what about the rest of us? Are you aspiring to eventually remove all dairy products, hence Dairy itself (as your article might suggest: “We most certainly do not need dairy to live a healthy life…….). But I do hope you’re not pushing to take away the freedoms of the remaining 25% of us “abnormal non-adjusting mutants” who still enjoy the great taste of cows milk and their benefits!

    1. Thank you for your comment. why do we have to forcibly impregnate a mother cow so we can steal the milk of her baby? kill her make calf for veal and kill her once she is spent at young age? why do we have to breed these animals into existence so we can exploit them, put them in misery for their milk and kill them for their flesh? they are selectively bred and genetically modified for out benefits and never theirs. they suffer for abnormalities ( having big udders ) why do you have to enslave animals and exploit the for your sensory pleasure? It is not needed anymore. exploiting others for your taste buds and pleasure makes you an oppressor and an animal abuser.
