Can you give your 16 month old skim milk?

Can you give your 16 month old skim milk?

I wouldn't: A babies brain grows very rapidly the first 2 years. Cholesterol provides the insulation between developing nerves and the fat supplies a significant contribution to the needed calories of this age group. After 2 years the brain growth slows and skim, or whatever else you use is OK. Try to push low fat too soon and there are long term consequences for baby. ...Read more

Can whatever the carcinogen in skim milk still in organic skim milk?

Can whatever the carcinogen in skim milk still in organic skim milk?

Controversial.: Organic milk will not have added bovine hormones, or antibiotics but otherwise is the same. It's still milk after all. Whether milk has a carcinogen is controversial.

Skim milk is proven to cause cancer, but what about organic skim milk?

Skim milk is proven to cause cancer, but what about organic skim milk?

Forgive my frankness: Life is difficult enough without people feeding you disinformation. Under california's weird laws, everything is "proven to cause cancer." ask a real scientist or scientific physician and we'll all tell you skim milk is far from a "proven" cause of cancer. It is possible to produce any scare story you want combining junk animal work and retrospective what-did-you-eat studies. Drink if if you want. ...Read more

Should I use formula milk for my overweight child or a regular skim milk?

Should I use formula milk for my overweight child or a regular skim milk?

At what age: Formula is not milk and skim milk would be a poor choice if the child were under a year of age& needed the nutritional additives in formula. If your child is truly overweight, based on charts comparing weight for height at his/her age a low fat milk may be appropriate. Generally we don't do this under 2 as the brain needs fat & cholesterol for growth in this period. ...Read more

Is skim milk bad for kidney stones? Should I stop taking dairy products?

Is skim milk bad for kidney stones? Should I stop taking dairy products?

Not the key: Following a kidney stone that contains calcium, you may be advised to limit / restrict all kinds of things that main contain calcium, phosphate or whatever. This probably has more to do with physicians protecting themselves from possible liability, and this is not the key to preventing stones -- staying very well-hydrated is far more important. Talk with your physician about this. ...Read more

A co worker said powder coffee creamer clogs your arteries. Is liquid creamer better? Skim milk dosent cut it. Half and half? Which is healthiest

Moderation: Half and half and whole milk contain a lot of fat. While a certain amount of fat is good to have in your diet (unsaturated fat), too much can be a bad thing. Powdered creamer and liquid creamer are not actually dairy products. This doesn't mean they are healthy though. Your best bet is to pick your favorite and use them in moderation. ...Read more

I ate out tonight and had a glass of pasteurized skim milk. As soon as I took a sip, I realized it was spoiled. I'm 31 weeks preg. Any damage to baby?

I ate out tonight and had a glass of pasteurized skim milk. As soon as I took a sip, I realized it was spoiled. I'm 31 weeks preg. Any damage to baby?

Spoiled milk: It should not since the milk was pasturized -kills pathologic bacteria. Some bacteria remain, but should not be pathologic. So do not worry, probability is very low. If pregnant avoid deli meats, uncooked fish ( (lox. Sushi), raw eggs, soft unpasturized cheeses, and even ice cream (listeria) F/u with doc
