E ugenio Derbez launched a campaign against dairy consumption this week that created great controversy in the networks… The Mexican actor who triumphs in Hollywood affirms in his video that milk is not good for human consumption: “Milk? No, thanks,”he says flatly.
Not only many of his fans were upset, even the President of the Livestock Commission in Mexico lashed out at the actor and an online protest platform has even been created for the video to be withdrawn because they say it defames the dairy industry.
Instead, we spoke with the famous nutritionist and health coach Alida López, wife of the driver Gino del Corte. On the contrary, she made these statements exclusively to us:
It is finally time for someone with Eugenio's weight and communication power to spread this type of educational message
We asked this expert nutritionist, who also advises other celebrities such as Omar Chaparro, Jesús Moré and many more, if in her opinion milk is truly as harmful as it is now painted…
“It really got worse since industrialization. The fact that the milk is pasteurized, although it eliminates possible contaminants and diseases that could be in the cow, causes it to lose its enzymes, leading to lactose intolerances, in addition to damaging its less absorbable nutrients and proteins.”
So we ask ourselves, why do other nutritionists recommend that milk is good, especially during childhood? "Because it is not common to see mothers breastfeeding children until the age of two," Alida tells us. In addition, there are women who do not produce enough milk and the most common substitute on hand would be cow's milk, because ultimately, milk from seeds or grains or soy is not the best option at that time of life. So it is used as a substitute, but it is leaving side effects."
"Another much better option would be unpasteurized goat milk, because it is the most similar to human milk, although I understand that it is not easy to find it and check whether the goat is in perfect health to give it to the baby. In some places there are mothers who donate milk so that other women's babies can feed … That would be the ideal option. Still, we must prepare the body before becoming pregnant and provide significant nutrients to produce milk, but it is something that is not customary either and some mothers take them by surprise to get pregnant.
And in that all the experts agree, nothing like breast milk for your baby to grow up healthy and happy. “The protein content of breast milk is around 5% and that makes humans grow perfectly. It is the stage in which it doubles its size at the highest speed, more than at any other time in life. More protein than that is inadequate and produces reflux, phlegm, ear infections and allergies, which have increased markedly in babies to the point of accepting and seeing it as normal without looking for the cause of it."
And finally, Alida states: "Eating cow's milk is not ideal, neither from the point of view of health, nor ecological, nor ethical." And you, what do you think about it?
