Harm Caused By Vitamin D And Milk

Mar 11, 2008
Recent studies have consistently shown the positive link between Vitamin D and health improvement. Vitamin D has been shown to improve lung health, new asthma treatments, and the prevention of breast and colon cancer. For example, the research is showing that daily intake of 1,000 units of Vitamin D cuts the odds of getting colon cancer by about half, and the chances of breast and ovarian cancer by about one third.

It is a well known fact that regular, sensible exposure to ultraviolet sunlight helps the body produce Vitamin D and that you cannot "overdose" on Vitamin D that is produced through UV exposure (although you might get sunburn!). What is less well known is that vitamin D supplements can be very harmful if not taken correctly.

Vitamin D has many important functions, one of which is the absorption of calcium. This vitamin greatly increases absorption of calcium (from the food you eat) and puts it into the blood stream so that it can be used by the body.

The danger is that if vitamin D supplements are combined with milk, the bloodstream is overwhelmed with calcium, and this can cause harmful calcification in different parts of the body. Calcification of the body is at the root of many serious diseases such as stroke, cancer and heart disease, to name just a few.

When a person consumes dairy milk, the protein in the milk quickly makes the bloodstream too acidic. The body reacts to this by pulling calcium from the bones back into the bloodstream (calcium is very alkaline and so it helps neutralize the blood).

Following on from the raised acidity, calcium from the milk enters the bloodstream more gradually. As this happens, too much calcium accumulates in the blood. This triggers hormones that get rid of the excess calcium in the bloodstream by dumping it all over the body. This eventually causes harmful calcification and disease.

When vitamin D supplements are taken on days that dairy milk is consumed, the problems are compounded by increasing further the amount of excess calcium in the bloodstream. Doctors have a name for this: hypercalcemia, a condition that can result in serious illness. For this reason it is important to avoid dairy milk on days that vitamin D supplements are taken.

To protect your health you should avoid taking vitamin D supplements on days that dairy milk is consumed (or vice-versa). Better still, switch to non-dairy milk which is far more nutritious and delicious than cow's milk. If non-dairy milk is difficult to obtain, you can easily make your own milk from ingredients that can be stored at home.
