NotZ Milk

Today I have decided to write a more personal blog, about something I feel very passionate about and have personally experienced: the negative effects of dairy.  I am not a medical professional and although “knowing everything” does run in my family, I know I don’t really know everything…but I do know that if you can extrapolate and look at the cause and effect, then one can often begin to uncover the truth.   And  being pro-active is always better than being re-active.   So find out the facts here, here, and here, and start being pro-active about your health, or just to find out why I freaking HATE dairy so much.
