I believe some of you may think that there isn’t much difference between ordinary milk and organic milk but there certainly is. In fact the milk that your child drinks affects his or her health!
Ordinary milk and organic milk are both come from cows, except for the following points which help to differentiate them:
Usually comes from cows that:
- Are routinely injected with antibiotics. Beware that antibiotic residue in milk is not good as it contributes to the development of antibiotic resistance among bacteria. What does this mean is that the antibiotic in the body that used to be effective in fighting bacteria may not be that effective anymore.
- Are fed with non-organic cattle feed.
- Are commonly injected with rBGH. rBGH is short for Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone, which is used to help cows to produce milk in much larger quantities. Research has shown that milk from rBGH treated cows might lead to some types of cancer in human milk drinkers.
- Grazed on land where chemical pesticides may have been used. Zahm and Ward from National Cancer Institute, USA had in 1998 reported that reducing or eliminating pesticide exposure will help to prevent some childhood cancers.
Does not have what was mentioned in ordinary milk. In addition, organic milk is come from cows that are fed on 100% certified organic feed for at least a year before the milk was produced.
So which one would you prefer?
After all, health is wealth. As a fact, parents would want their children grow up be a healthily individual.
