The Great Milk Debate

So, a thread on BBC really got my goat going tonight. I'm so tired of how people say this is the cause of that. Am I the only one fed up with all the so called studies that put down EVERYTHING we do for our kids and claim that doing them is killing our children? I mean SERIOUSLY? Now giving babies cow's milk before a year of age causes them to have diabetes! How the heck do you even come up with that ridiculous idea? And I DARE ANYONE to try to debate me on diabetes related issues. I'm very up to date on all things diabetes study related. I stay in the know of these things in hopes of one day having a cure for myself and being able to plan on living a very long life, maybe even having GREAT grandkids. Type 1 diabetes is essentially an autoimmune disease! Your body's immune system goes haywire and attacks the islet cells in the pancreas. Those are the insulin producing cells. Can someone please explain to me how COW'S milk causes your immune system to attack your pancreas? I really can't wait for PROOF of that one, not some stupid study that uses THEORY. I'm SO SICK of theory. I'm a facts based momma. I could give a rip about theory! Theorize all you want, but until you give me FACTS, I'm not listening. Just like the great aspartame debate. Get over it. Those "studies" were PROVEN (there, again, with FACTS) wrong years ago. Aspartame is as safe for you and your unborn child as any other artificial ANYTHING you consume.

Get off it people. I'm so sick of everyone who reads some stupid study taking it for fact without doing their own research, then when a momma makes a decision that has her baby's best interest at heart, attacking her for her decision because she can't possibly be as good a momma as you since she doesnt' believe every single freaking thing she reads. So, if that be a case....

Drinking water causes you to grow a 3rd nipple! OMG! Ya'll, stop drinking water now! Spread the word! This is a study from the University of WackJob Tech!

I ALWAYS KNEW I SHOULD HAVE DRANK MORE ATER, RECKON IT IS TOO LATE TO START? LOL. THAT IS FUNNY, BUT I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU SAID. I WAS ALWAYS HARASSED BECAUSE I GAVE MY KIDS COW MILK AND DIDN'T BREASTFEED, BUT MY KIDS ARE HEALTHIER THAN SOME I KNOW THAT DID. NOT SAYING THAT THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG WITH EITHER ONE THOUGH.

My Crazy Life

My photo
I am a Christian wife and homeschooling mom of two precious boys. I enjoy photography and spending time with my family, along with any other hobby I can manage to dig my nails into. I'm married to PJ, God's precious gift to me ;) I'm honest, passionate, and find myself falling deeper and deeper in love with my Creator each and every day that passes. I was diagnosed as a Type 1 Diabetic at the age of 10. I chose not to care about my health then, and am paying the price now with multiple complications including kidney damage and neuropathy. I currently reside in Florida, where God led my family in February of 2011, but my heart is, and will forever be, in Alabama.
