Dairy is bad- you hear that all over the place, especially from the vegan community. But is that really true? As with everything in life, there is no right and wrong, it’s a question that can only be answered in context and that’s why I dislike people or articles especially in the fitness industry that put out bullshit just to either boost their marketing or simply are not able to put information into context. Or what I love most: they cherry-pick studies to support their biased belief. With this in background they go out and misinform people and make them buy their story.
Important here is. If you want to get the right information in this industry, you need to follow unbiased and trusted people and organizations. There ain‘t many on this planet, that‘s for sure ad it takes years of experience to filter out who is a trustful source and who is not. For example: whenever someone popularizes some diet or whatever to be magic, just run away. We all know life doesn’t work this way. It’s all marketing bullshit. There will never be a magic food nor will there never be a shortcut for weightloss or muscle gain. (at least not on a natural basis)
Because I’m so fed up with so much misinformation in this industry, I’m really thankful when I first heard from Precision Nutrition some years ago. Why? It’s very simple, they follow a 100% scientific approach and always put everything in context. At the end they leave it up to you to decide what’s right or wrong for you.
Here are the 20 most important points and facts about dairy, straight from one of the best and top scientific article that exist out there:
There’s no “right choice”. There are only choices that work more or less for you.
Your body is unique. Your life is unique. You don’t need dairy in order to be healthy. As the evidence currently stands (read: not yet definitive), the known health benefits of dairy most certainly outweigh the suspected harms, on average.
