got milk

babies gotta have milk
of course
breast feeding is the best source for them
after they are too old for moms breast milk
around 3-4 yrs old for some
sooner for most
they transition to milk from cows

why do they need milk
vitamin d and calcium
i know in my practice before i retired i found quite
a few kids who were significantly vitamin d deficient
no sun
no milk product intake
no outside activities
you need sun to make vitamin d in the skin

now it seems yes its needed in the young
it appears to be useful in the elderly also

a research study from the university of kansas
showed that elderly folks who drank milk
had high levels of glutathione in the brain

the glutathione works as an antoxidant in the brain
to protect brain cells
it scavenges the free radicals that appear in the brain
by things like lack of exercise mental stress pollution
poor diet etc all of which lowers glutathione
increasing the levels in the brain via milk intake
improves our brains health

milk is the best way to raise these levels of glutathione
in the past i would say blue bell ice cream
but for now i would wait on that source

so got milk
Image result for milk carton
yes 3 cups a day
if you are milk sensitive eat milk whey protein
youll improve your memory

tomorrow on the central texas gardener on klru at 1200 noon
or 400pm a raised garden i put in at a habitat house is shown
on the segment by daphe midway into the show
its a few seconds of recognition

i sent the picture to ask about whether it was ok to use
cinder blocks in raised beds
their consensus was yes its safe
thats not on the segment though

here is a youtube link to the segment

i have also talked personally to some of the organic
garden gurus in this area who say its safe

as one said
i use them in my garden and in the community gardens
you get more pollution from going outside breathing
the air than you ever would from using these blocks
in the garden
