André Gide...The Fruits of the Earth (French: Les nourritures terrestres)(1897)...Biskra...If our soul was worth anything, it was that it burned more ardently than a few others.

Inspired by mysticism, the narrator uses desire and its fulfillment as the principle of life and religion. The senses are explored in depth in contact with a nature rich in gifts, captured in landscapes with oriental colors from Biskra and the painter Etienne Dinet.
" Look in the evenings as if the day were to die here; and in the morning as if all things were born there. May your vision be new at every moment. The wise man is the one who surprises himself with everything. .....Throw out my book; tell you that it is only one of the thousand possible postures in front of life. Look for yours. What someone else would have done as well as you, don't do. What someone else would have said as well as you, don't say, _ as well written as you, don't write. Be devoted in
yourself only to what you feel which is nowhere other than in yourself, and create from you, impatiently or patiently, ah! the most unrivalled of all beings. There are strange possibilities in every man. The present would be full of all futures, if the past did not already project a history. But, alas! a unique past offers a unique future - projects it before us, like an infinite point on space.
I wish no rest other than the sleep of death. I am afraid that any desire, any energy that I would not have satisfied during my life, for their survival will torment me.
I hope, after having expressed on this earth all that awaited me, I am satisfied, I hope to die completely desperate.
No, not sympathy, Nathaniel, love. You realize, don't you, that it's not the same thing. It is out of fear of a loss of love that sometimes I was able to sympathize with sadness, trouble, pain that otherwise I would have barely endured. Leave everyone to take care of their own lives.
(I can't write today because a wheel turns in the barn. Yesterday I saw her; she was beating rapeseed. The ball flew away; the grain rolled on the ground. The dust suffocated.
A woman turned the wheel. Two handsome boys, barefoot, harvested the grain.
I'm crying because I have nothing more to say.
Everything that seeks to assert itself denies itself; everything that renounces itself affirms itself.
Tomorrow's dream is a joy, but tomorrow's joy is another, and fortunately nothing resembles the dream we had of it; for it is different that everything is worth anything.
Dare to be what you are. Don't let it get out of hand. There are admirable possibilities in every being. Persuade yourself of your strength and youth. Know how to tell you over and over again: He only cares about me.
Our actions cling to us as his phosphorus glow.
They consume us, it is true, but they make us our splendour.
And if our soul was worth anything, it was that it burned more ardently than a few others.
I settle down in this point of the space that I occupy, in this precise moment of duration. I do not accept that it is not crucial. I extend my arms all the way. I say: this is the south, the north... I am effect; I will be cause. Determining cause! An opportunity that will never come again. I am; but I want to find a reason for being. I want to know why I live.What absurd conception of the world and life manages to cause three-quarters of our misery, and by attachment to the past refuses to understand that tomorrow's joy is only possible if the joy of today gives way, that each wave owes the beauty of its curve only to the withdrawal of that which precedes it, that each flower must wither for its fruit, that this one, if it does not fall and die, does not die. From the day when I convinced myself that I didn't need to be happy, happiness began to dwell in me; yes, from the day when I convinced myself that I didn't need anything to be happy. It seemed to me, after giving the touch of selfishness, that I had poured forth such an abundance of joy from my heart that I could water all the others with it.
I understood that the best teaching is an example. I accepted my happiness as a vocation."

This work of youth, long matured, is that of a "convalescent who embraces life as something he almost lost". No novel, no essay, no long poem in prose, this unclassifiable work is a little bit all this at once. In the eight books that make up the book, the narrator, referring to himself as a master called Ménalque, addresses a disciple who answers to the biblical name of Nathaniel and who represents the virtual reader of the text. The subject of the work is given from the Warning which precedes the first book:"Let my book teach you to be more interested in you than in itself.Terrestrial Foods are the great work of Gide, without which the author's knowledge is incomplete. It is, however, surprisingly different from the Pastoral Symphony, the False Minters or the Narrow Gate, which adopts the Romanesque form. A long poem in prose, a textbook of hedonistic philosophy or a travel narrative, it is read like an exalted praise of nature and the senses.The fruits, the gardens, the soil are so many beauties rediscovered by new organs and which want to be free of any physical, sentimental and social attachment. It is freedom in uppercase, pleasure erected as a law above the heart and mind, absolute availability to the world and the moment - all this contradicts the very writing of this manual, which stirs memories and shapes this new ethic of joy rather than being satisfied with the present.

Letter to Nathaniel

"You can't imagine, Nathaniel, what can finally become of this watering of light; and the sensual ecstasy that gives this persistent heat... A branch of olive tree in the sky; the sky above the hills; a flute song at the door of a café... Algiers seemed so hot and full of festivities that I wanted to leave it for three days; but at Blidah, where I was in a place like Blidah, where I could not believe it!I go out in the morning; I walk around, I don't look at anything and see everything; a wonderful symphony is formed and unheard sensations are organized in me. The hour goes by, my excitement aligns itself, as the less vertical sun's march is slower. Then I choose, to be or something, of what to fall in love with, - but I want it to move, because my emotion, once fixed, is no longer alive. It seems to me then at every moment that I have not yet seen or tasted anything.I'm lost in a disorderly pursuit of the things that flee. Yesterday I ran to the top of the hills overlooking Blidah, to see the sun a little longer; to see the sunset and the fiery clouds colouring the white terraces. I surprise the shade and silence under the trees; I lurk in the moonlight; I often feel as if I am swimming, so much the warm, luminous air envelops me and lifts me softly."

The book was written in 1895 (the year of Gide's marriage) and appeared in a review in 1896 before publication the next year. Gide admitted to the intellectual influence of Nietzsche's Also Sprach Zarathustra but the true genesis was the author's own journey from the deforming influence of his puritanical religious upbringing to liberation in the arms of North African boys. Andre Maurois draws attention to the similarity of moral outlook between the two works in these words: "Like Thus Spake Zarathustra, Les Nourritures Terrestres is a gospel in the root sense of the word: glad tidings. Tidings about the meaning of life addressed to a dearly loved disciple whom Gide calls Nathanael." "Nathaniel" comes from the Hebrew name נְתַנְאֵל, "Nethan'el", meaning "God has given".
The book has three characters: the narrator, the narrator's teacher, Menalque, and the young Nathanael. Menalque has two lessons to impart through the narrator. The first is to flee families, rules, stability. Gide himself suffered so much from "snug homes" that he harped on its dangers all his life. The second is to seek adventure, excess, fervor; one should loathe the lukewarm, security, all tempered feelings. "Not affection, Nathanael: love ..."
A subtly structured collection of lyrical fragments, reminiscences, poems, travel notes, and aphorisms, the book came to command such a following after World War I that Gide wrote a preface stressing the work's self-critical dimension. Nevertheless it influenced a generation of young writers, including the existentialists Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre, to cast off all that is artificial or merely conventional. In Roger Martin du Gard’s The Thibaults, two of the main characters, Jacques Thibault and Daniel de Fontanin, are deeply changed after reading the book.Gide develops the theme of the relationship with matter and natural elements, in an ode that is both lyrical and sensual. Through the work, an almost extatic enthusiasm for life emerges, making the text a kind of gospel of the awakening of the senses; in fact, it seems that sensuality almost acts as a profession of faith, or even a new religion, so much so one feels fervour and emotion, especially for the earth, the harvests, the fruits, all that is physical and fleshy.The entire text can be considered a true hymn to the libido sentiendi.In terms of filigree, it is also about sexuality, even if this theme is not directly mentioned in the book. In this sense, the work can be interpreted as a hyperbole on desire and eroticism, the evocation of harvests and "food" having the value of a symbol of the desired body. It is, above all, a book on desire, on thirst, the objects evoked as a pretext for expressing this desire, often unquenchable, irrepressible, overflowing, which succeeds in magnifying and transcending the whole world.It is not strictly speaking a novel, but rather a long prose poem in which sensuality is expressed, tinged with fervour and contact with nature.The question of the kind of terrestrial food finds its answer in an aesthetics of diversity. Gide proposes hybrid structures, made up of obsolete poetic forms (ballads, rounds), fragments of diaries, notebooks, wandering notes. Despite the current editions, it is important to know that the original manuscript took great liberties in terms of typography, even going so far as to resemble the future modernist verses and other calligrams in vogue at the beginning of the twentieth century. On the other hand, editors have tended to pick up the text and some verse episodes are now presented as a block of prose.

The novelistic aspect of the book is to be found in the theme of travel, in the existence of emblematic characters and above all in the reconstruction of a hedonistic life that transgresses traditional morality.The Foods are in a sense the joyful and solar counterpart of Oscar Wilde's De Profundis, a dark work in which the Irish writer also developed, but "negatively" through absence and lack, a form of absolute sensuality that seeks to free itself from the narrow moralism of the Victorian era, conformism and social conventions.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fruits_of_the_Earth

Gide was born in Paris on 22 November 1869, into a middle-class Protestant family. His father was a Paris University professor of law who died in 1880. His uncle was the political economist Charles Gide.At a very early age, André began learning to play the piano, which would be his lifelong companion. An accomplished pianist, he regrets that he did not meet excellent teachers early enough to make him a true musician. In 1877, he entered the Alsatian School, beginning a discontinuous schooling2. Indeed, he was soon dismissed for three months after letting go of his "bad habits", that is to say masturbation. Shortly after his return to school - "healed" by the threat of a doctor's castration and the sadness of his parents - the disease keeps him away from it again. In spite of the medical and parental objections, onanism - which he calls "vice" 3 and which he does not practice without a strong taste for sin and sad defeat - will later regain its place among his habits, which will make him write at the age of 23 that he lived until he was "completely virgin and depraved".
Gide was brought up in isolated conditions in Normandy and became a prolific writer at an early age, publishing his first novel, The Notebooks of André Walter (French: Les Cahiers d'André Walter), in 1891, at the age of twenty-one.The death of his father on October 28,1880, pushed him away from normal schooling. Already marked by the death of a little cousin, Émile Widmer, who provoked a deep crisis of anguish in him, baptized, according to Goethe, by the German name Schaudern, André lost, with the death of Paul Gide, a happy and tender relationship, which left him alone in front of his mother:"And I suddenly felt all wrapped up in this love, which now closed on me. During one of his stays in Rouen in the fall of 1882, he surprised his cousin Madeleine's secret sorrow about her mother's adulterous relationships. In his emotion, he discovers "a new orientation to his life". There a long and tortuous relationship emerges. Gide is fascinated by the young girl, by her consciousness of evil, her rigid and conformist sense of what to do, a sum of differences that attracts her. Little by little, he builds a perfect image of his cousin that he falls in love with, in a purely intellectual and yet passionate way.Between 1885 and 1888, the young André lived through a period of religious exaltation - described as a "seraphic state" 8 - which he shared with his cousin through extensive correspondence and common readings. He draws heavily from the Bible, Greek authors, and practices asceticism. In 1885, he met François de Witt-Guizot at La Roque-Baignard, whom he associated for a time with his mysticism. The following year, Pastor Élie Allegret, a summer tutor, became his friend.In 1887, he returned to the Alsatian School of rhetoric and met Pierre Louÿs, with whom he became involved in a passionate friendship, which revolved around literature and their common desire to write. The following year, while preparing for the baccalaureate in philosophy (at Henri-IV high school), he discovered Schopenhauer. After graduating from the baccalaureate in 1889, he began to attend literary fairs, meeting many writers. His first collection, Les Cahiers d' André Walter, through which he hopes to obtain a first literary success and the hand of his cousin, meets with the favor of criticism, failing to attract the public's attention. In the spring of 1892, a trip to Germany without his mother was an opportunity to deepen his knowledge of Goethe. Gide then begins to think that "it is a duty to be happy. In the Elégies romaines, he discovers the legitimacy of pleasure - unlike the puritanism he has always known - and it gives him a "temptation to live". It's also the beginning of tension with her mother. However, the latter decided to support her son in the conquest of Madeleine, against the rest of the Rondeaux family and the young girl herself, who remained firmly opposed to a union with her cousin.

In the summer of 1892, he wrote the Voyage d' Urien, which was co-authored with the painter Maurice Denis, who produced thirty original lithographs16. The book is ignored by critics and little encouragement is given to those close to them. In the fall, after a brief barracks stint - poorly experienced - and five review boards, Gide was reformed. The following year was marked by the birth of a new friendship - initially exclusively epistolary - with Francis Jammes, which Eugène Rouart presented to him.However, it is another friendship, that of Paul Laurens, which will play a decisive role. The young painter, as part of a scholarship, must travel for one year and invites him to join him. This journey, reported in "Si le grain ne meurt" is going to be for Gide the occasion of a moral and sexual emancipation that he called for from his vows. They left in October 1893 for a nine-month trip to Tunisia, Algeria . André then moved to Biskra in Algeria, where they continued her romance, in the arms of the young Mériem. Juliette Gide's sudden intrusion, worried about her son's health, broke their intimacy before the journey resumed without her in April 1894.

MILK ISN’T WHAT IT USED TO BE...11 Reasons to Stop Drinking Cow’s Milk...Debunking The Milk Myth: Why Milk Is Bad For You And Your Bones

Animal milk has long been claimed as the go-to source of calcium by the dairy industry, but as it turns out, milk is bad for you. Calcium from animal milk is not absorbed as well as that from plant-based sources, and it can be accompanied by a number of dangerous health problems.
1. Broken bones
In a Swedish medical study, women who consumed large quantities of dairy milk daily were more likely to sustain fractures than those who drank little to no milk.
2. Prostate cancer
3. Lactose intolerance
Cow’s milk contains a sugar called lactose that can be difficult for people to digest, resulting in symptoms such as nausea, cramps, gas, bloating, and diarrhea. It can also develop later in life and result in months of worsening symptoms.
4. Acne
In multiple studies, the consumption of all types of cow’s milk was linked to an increased prevalence and severity of acne in both boys and girls.
5. Cholesterol
A single serving of milk can contain as much as 24 mg of cholesterol, whereas vegan food has no cholesterol.
6. Ovarian cancer
A Swedish study showed that women who consumed four or more servings of dairy products each day were twice as likely to develop serous ovarian cancer as those who consumed two or fewer servings of dairy products each day.
7. Milk allergies
Unlike lactose intolerance, milk allergies, usually in young children, are characterized by potentially strong and dangerous reactions, such as vomiting or anaphylaxis.
8. Antibiotics
Many cows are pumped full of antibiotics. This practice is leading to antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which may decrease the effectiveness of antibiotics used on humans.

10. Weight gain
Despite industry claims, a study of more than 12,000 children showed that the more milk they drank, the more weight they gained, and skim and 1 percent milk appeared, counter-intuitively, to lead to more weight gain than drinking 2 percent or whole milk. The study also found that replacing soda with milk did not lead to weight loss.
11. Bone loss
Instead of promoting bone health, animal protein in dairy products can have a calcium-leaching effect.
www.peta.org/living/food/reasons-stop-drinking-milk/

Some evidence suggests that the consumption of milk and other dairy products leads to an increased risk of prostate cancer. Conversely, dairy-free diets have been followed to slow the progress of prostate cancer.
Did you know that in Medieval England parents would tie rabbits’ feet around their babies’ necks to ward off illness? Doctors would also spit on wounds because saliva was believed to have healing properties.Indeed, history is replete with unfounded health beliefs, and to everyone’s detriment, the milk myth is among the most tenacious.Milk is much more than just a drink; it’s a cultural phenomenon that can be traced back thousands of years. And still today, the milk myth resonates loud and clear: in 2001, the average American child consumed 104 quarts of cow’s milk.Milk depletes the calcium from your bones .The milk myth has spread around the world based on the flawed belief that this protein and calcium-rich drink is essential to support good overall health and bone health in particular at any age. It is easy to understand that the confusion about milk’s imaginary benefits stems from the fact that it contains calcium – around 300 mg per cup. But many scientific studies have shown an assortment of detrimental health effects directly linked to milk consumption. And the most surprising link is that not only do we barely absorb the calcium in cow’s milk (especially if pasteurized), but to make matters worse, it actually increases calcium loss from the bones. What an irony this is! Here’s how it happens. Like all animal protein, milk acidifies the body pH which in turn triggers a biological correction. You see, calcium is an excellent acid neutralizer and the biggest storage of calcium in the body is – you guessed it… in the bones. So the very same calcium that our bones need to stay strong is utilized to neutralize the acidifying effect of milk. Once calcium is pulled out of the bones, it leaves the body via the urine, so that the surprising net result after this is an actual calcium deficit.Knowing this, you’ll understand why statistics show that countries with the lowest consumption of dairy products also have the lowest fracture incidence in their population (there’s more on this later).But the sad truth is that most mainstream health practitioners ignore these proven facts. I know it firsthand because when I was diagnosed with osteoporosis, my doctor recommended that I drink lots of milk in addition to taking Fosamax.

Fortunately, I did neither, because I knew that…Cow’s milk is custom-designed for calves

Thanks to our creative ingenuity and perhaps related to our ancient survival needs, we adopted the dubious habit of drinking another species’ milk. Nobody can dispute that cow’s milk is an excellent food source for calves. Weighing around 100 pounds at birth, a calf typically gains approximately eight times its weight by the time it is weaned. But unlike humans, once calves are weaned, they never drink milk again. And the same applies to every mammalian species on this planet.Also, each mammalian species has its own “designer” milk, and cow’s milk is no exception. For example, cow’s milk contains on average three times the amount of protein than human milk which creates metabolic disturbances in humans that have detrimental bone health consequences.

It’s important to bear in mind that mother’s milk is excellent nourishment for human babies, but its composition is very different from cow’s milk.

Scientific studies show that milk increases fracture risk

Many scientific studies contradict the conventional wisdom that milk and dairy consumption help reduce osteoporotic fractures. Surprisingly, studies demonstrating that milk and dairy products actually fail to protect bones from fractures outnumber studies that prove otherwise. Even drinking milk from a young age does not protect against future fracture risk but actually increases it. Shattering the “savings account” calcium theory, Cumming and Klineberg report their study findings as follows:

“Consumption of dairy products, particularly at age 20 years, was associated with an increased risk of hip fracture in old age. (“Case-Control Study of Risk Factors for Hip Fractures in the Elderly”. American Journal of Epidemiology. Vol. 139, No. 5, 1994).

And the 12 year long Harvard Nurses’ Health Study found that those who consumed the most calcium from dairy foods broke more bones than those who rarely drank milk. This is a broad study based on 77,761 women aged 34 through 59 years of age.

In the authors’ own words:

“These data do not support the hypothesis that higher consumption of milk or other food sources of calcium by adult women protects against hip or forearm fractures.” (Source: Feskanich D, Willett WC, Stampfer MJ, Colditz GA. Milk, dietary calcium, and bone fractures in women: a 12-year prospective study. American Journal of Public Health. 1997).

Shocking statistics ignored by mainstream medicine

In the Save Our Bones Program one of the topics I discuss is the complete disregard of scientific evidence that discredits milk and dairy products as the best source of calcium.

One exception is Amy Lanou Ph.D., nutrition director for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine in Washington, D.C., who states that:

“The countries with the highest rates of osteoporosis are the ones where people drink the most milk and have the most calcium in their diets. The connection between calcium consumption and bone health is actually very weak, and the connection between dairy consumption and bone health is almost nonexistent.”

Surprised? You shouldn’t be, because as I mentioned earlier in this article…

Milk is an acidifying animal protein

Like any other animal derived protein-rich food, milk has a positive potential renal acid load (PRAL) which triggers a protective biological reaction to neutralize all the damaging acidic protein before it reaches the kidneys.

The body is designed for survival, so it sacrifices bone density to protect the kidneys and urinary tract because the latter are essential to survival. And the most readily available source of acid neutralizer is in the bones. So even though milk contains calcium, it ends up sapping your bones of that crucial mineral. But that’s not all because…

Today’s milk is a processed food

Until the end of the 19th century in Europe and the beginning of the 20th century in the US, milk was consumed unpasteurized or raw. Later on, homogenization became the industry’s standard. These processes further alter milk’s chemistry and actually increase its detrimental acidifying effects.

Raw milk advocates claim that if cow’s milk is left “as is” it is a healthy and wholesome drink. It is true that raw milk is less acidifying than processed milk and that pasteurization and homogenization may cause a long list of digestive and other health problems, but I still don’t recommend drinking any kind of cow’s milk.

Nowadays, milking cows are given antibiotics and most are also injected with a genetically engineered form of bovine growth hormone (rBGH). A man-made or synthetic hormone used to artificially increase milk production, rBGH also increases blood levels of the insulin-growth factor 1 (IGF-1) in those who drink it. And higher levels of IGF-1 are linked to several cancers.

This should not be ignored, especially in view of recent information by Samuel Epstein, MD, Professor of Environmental Medicine at the University of Illinois School of Public Health, and Chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition. In an article titled “Monsanto’s Hormonal Milk Poses Serious Risks of Breast Cancer, Besides Other Cancers” (www.preventcancer.com/press/releases/july8_98.htm, June 21, 1998) Dr. Epstein concludes that:

“Drinking rBGH milk would thus be expected to significantly increase IGF-1 blood levels and consequently to increase risks of developing breast cancer and promoting its invasiveness.”

Even though organic milk is from cows that are not given antibiotics or rBHG, if you truly care about your bone health and your overall health, you should…

Avoid drinking cow’s milk

As I explain in the Save Our Bones Program and contrary to mainstream recommendations, drinking milk and eating lots of dairy products are not the answer to reversing osteoporosis. And while in the Save Our Bones Program no food is completely off limits, I strongly recommend that you explore the different milk substitute options that I will list for you here.

But first, I’d like to clarify that unsweetened fermented or cultured dairy products such as yogurt, kefir, and sour cream are acid neutral. Yogurt in particular is chock-full of beneficial qualities. As is the case with milk, organic yogurt does not have rBGH, but even several of the most well-known yogurt brands have stopped using the bovine growth hormone (rBGH). You should call your favorite yogurt company to confirm. One more clarification: when I say unsweetened I mean without sugar or any artificial sweetener. However, you can add honey or stevia, a zero calorie plant-derived sweetener that is delicious and alkalizing as well. I like to carry around stevia packets in my purse so that I’m always able to sweeten food or drinks when I’m on the go.

The best milk substitutes

My favorite milk substitute is unsweetened almond milk, not only because it is alkalizing (as almonds are), but also because it’s delicious and tastes very similar to milk. I even cook with it!

If almond milk is hard to get, you can also try rice or soy milk. I strongly suggest consuming only organic soy milk to insure it’s not made with genetically modified soy. There is also some controversy about unfermented soy products, so try to use it in moderation.

What Else Haven’t They Told You? What else have you been told about bone health by your doctor or other “experts” that is flat out wrong? What other “facts” (like drinking milk does a body good) are keeping you from optimal health? Myths like these are a big reason I created the Save Our Bones Program. To give you the straight scoop on how to deal with osteoporosis the natural way.


And remember, if you ever hear someone ask “Got milk?” smile and think to yourself “No, because I know better!”

WHY MILK IS BAD FOR YOU
Today we need to talk about WHY milk is bad for you and your bones. Not just any milk, but specifically any milk coming from another animal. Those who know me know that I am usually a VERY positive person, and the word “bad” isn’t usually in my vocabulary. However, my goal in this video is to make you aware of what you are putting in your body so that you can see HOW important it is to eat pure foods and to see which foods are optimal for your body. There is a LOT that society has taught us that isn’t healthy, and I want to expose some of those myths. Today, I will be sharing my take on why milk is really not good for you, and I will give you alternatives that you can enjoy that are much healthier. Ok, are you ready? Here are my top reasons why MILK is BAD for you:

MILK ISN’T WHAT IT USED TO BE
Today’s milk is a processed food. Until the end of the 19th century in Europe and the beginning of the 20th century in the US, milk was consumed unpasteurized or raw. Later on, homogenization became the industry’s standard. These processes further alter milk’s chemistry and actually increase its detrimental acidifying effects.

UNWANTED INGREDIENTS
Under current industrial methods, cow’s milk is often a toxic bovine brew of man-made ingredients like bio-engineered hormones, antibiotics (55% of U.S. antibiotics are fed to livestock), and pesticides—all of which are bad for us and the environment. For example, unintentional pesticide poisonings kill an estimated 355,000 people globally each year. In addition the drugs pumped into livestock often re-visit us in our water supply.

COWS MILK BELONGS TO COWS
We are the only animals on the planet who take another animals milk and drink it for consumption. We are biologically designed to drink our own mother’s milk. Would you go and put your mouth to a cow’s nipple and start drinking it? It’s not a naturally occurring desire in my mind.

The biochemical make-up of cow’s milk is perfectly suited to turn a 65-pound newborn calf into a 400-pound cow in one year. It contains, for example, three times more protein and seven times more mineral content while human milk has 10 times as much essential fatty acids, three times as much selenium, and half the calcium. Some may like cow’s milk but drinking it is both unnecessary and potentially harmful.

IT DEPLETES BONE CALCIUM
Despite popular opinion, recent studies and exposes have shown that dairy can actually CREATE osteoporosis in your bones. According to the SAVE OUR BONES CAMPAIGN and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, not only do we barely absorb the calcium in cow’s milk (especially if pasteurized), but to make matters worse, it actually increases calcium loss from the bones. This increases your risk for fractures and more.

FREQUENT MILK CONSUMPTION = INCREASED RISK OF OSTEOPOROSIS
According to the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, “The countries with the highest rates of osteoporosis are the ones where people drink the most milk and have the most calcium in their diets. The connection between calcium consumption and bone health is actually very weak, and the connection between dairy consumption and bone health is almost nonexistent.”
Do you remember the GOT MILK ads that you used to see everywhere? Did you know that they had a ____ million dollar lawsuit against that ad due to the fact that this wasn’t true?

They had to stop saying that milk creates strong bones. Many of those ads disappeared after that lawsuit.

UNNCESSARY WEIGHT GAIN
As beverages go, milk is relatively high in calories. One cup of 2% milk has 138 calories, for instance. Drinking three cups a day adds 366 calories to the diet — a lot for anyone watching their weight.
EXACERBATES ACNE & CREATES GAS
Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology found an association between dairy consumption and acne. They suggest that removing milk or dairy can help to clear your skin.
IT’S AN ACIDIFYING ANIMAL PROTEIN
Like any other animal derived protein-rich food, milk has a positive potential renal acid load (PRAL) which triggers a protective biological reaction to neutralize all the damaging acidic protein before it reaches the kidneys.
What does this mean exactly? Any body that is in an acidic state is at higher risk for cancer, disease, soreness, short recovery time, and more.
DRINKING CREATES EXCESS MUCUS
There’s not much more I need to say here. Give it a try and see for yourself.
IT PROMOTES ANIMAL CRUELTY
Many of the animals today are factory farmed and abused.
Those are just a FEW of the reasons why milk isn’t the most optimal of foods for our bodies. But remember that it doesn’t stop there. Milk is found in cheeses, yogurt, non-vegan ice creams, whey protein, whipped creams, and ANY type of dairy product. I’ve put together more links and information in the description below..So I know what you are thinking..WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO EAT?! Don’t worry because I have a great substite for you!

Audouin's gull

Audouin's gull (Ichthyaetus audouinii) is a large gull restricted to the Mediterranean and the western coast of Saharan Africa and the Iberian peninsula. The genus name is from Ancient Greek ikhthus, "fish", and aetos, "eagle", and the specific audouinii and the English name are after the French naturalist Jean Victoire Audouin.[2]

It breeds on small islands colonially or alone, laying 2–3 eggs on a ground nest. As is the case with many gulls, it has traditionally been placed in the genus Larus.

In the late 1960s, this was one of the world's rarest gulls, with a population of only 1,000 pairs. It has established new colonies, but remains rare with a population of about 10,000 pairs.

This species, unlike many large gulls, rarely scavenges, but is a specialist fish eater, and is therefore strictly coastal and pelagic. This bird will feed at night, often well out to sea, but also slowly patrols close into beaches, occasionally dangling its legs to increase drag.

The adult basically resembles a small European herring gull, the most noticeable differences being the short stubby red bill and "string of pearls" white wing primary tips, rather than the large "mirrors" of some other species. The legs are grey-green. It takes four years to reach adult plumage.

This species shows little tendency to wander from its breeding areas, but there were single records in the Netherlands and England in May 2003, and one spent from December 2016 to April 2017 in Trinidad.[3]

The Audouin's gull is one of the species to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies.
