    Hmmmm. You are correct in saying cows milk is not optimal for human consumption however, I dispute the broad statement that exposure to cows milk in the first three months of a babies life is a significant risk facter in adolescents developing type 1 diabetes. Did the studies study adolescents that had never had softdrinks? That had never had lollies or cakes or high carb takeaways? That had never been ill or immunised or had medicine or medical intervetion? What about studying children who had straight cows milk – not pasturised or homogonised?? Do They have a greater incidence of Type 1 Diabetes? What about including comparitive studies of children who have Type 1 diabetes that had no exposure to cows milk in the first three months!! If you wanted to make a report on what to take to help with diabetes then by all means do that. If you want to tell people why it is not good to have cows milk then fire ahead but do not link the two in the way you have done without comparative unbiased studies. Forget trying to impress intelligent people with words like “scientific Studies”. No-one should get away with shoddy reporting like this any more.

    A very interesting article. Diabetes is rife in my family, although I didn’t develop it until I was well over 60, possibly due to an excellent diet and being so active. I’ve always known cows milk was implicated in many illnesses but New Zealand has such a massive dairy industry that it isn’t until something goes seriously and visibly wrong with us that we begin to look at milk as a possible contributing factor.
    In the end it’s personal choice, milk plays havoc with my psoriasis but I still like a glass of iced coffee on a hot day 🙂

    I have very recently been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 53.
    I have started a regime of 4 injections a day of Insulin.
    Would you recommend the usage of these supplements in tandem with insulin??
    Would it assist the pancreas to return to partial or full function?
    I look forward to hearing from you

    • Hi Beverley, it really depends on your personal circumstances and therefore we would encourage you to consult your naturopath or health professional … perhaps take a copy of the article and ask them if it’s okay and whether it would be beneficial for you personally. I’m sorry we can’t be more helpful here – it would be inappropriate for us to advise individuals (as we don’t know your history and circumstances). But I hope this article has at least given you food for thought and some avenues you can look into further with your health professional. We wish you all the best – Anya
