Is milk making your prostate...worse?

3 minutes to read

08/14/2018

When it comes to a healthy diet, one thing I’m certain you’ve heard a lot about is making sure it includes a decent amount of milk.

And it makes sense...healthy foods like milk are chocked full of bone-strengthening calcium, something that’s incredibly important as we get older.

But there’s a hidden danger to that supposedly “healthy” milk that you may not be aware of.

A Harvard study found that men who consumed milk also showed an increased risk of developing prostate cancer. (1)

I know you’re someone who’s trying their hardest to stay healthy, so when I hear about “fake health” foods like milk that can totally derail your progress — it’s my duty to let you know.

But this doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite drinks or desserts...

Because with these simple swaps you’ll still be able to enjoy your favorite foods and drinks...without putting your prostate health at risk.

Simple Swap #1: Try Almond Milk

Almond milk is probably the most popular “alternative milk” on the market today.

That’s likely because it’s lower in calories than other types of milk (as long as you get the unsweetened kind), and it also contains ZERO saturated fat — meaning it’s naturally lactose-free. (2)

But on the downside, almond milk isn’t a great source of protein and most kinds also contain carrageenan — which can cause digestive issues for some people.

(If you decide to make this your milk of choice, remember to choose one that’s been fortified with a good portion of your daily recommended amount of calcium.)

Simple Swap #2: Drink Rice Milk

Rice milk is great because it’s naturally sweeter than other milk alternatives.

And it's also the least likely of all milk products to cause any kinds of allergies. Manufacturers often fortify it with calcium, vitamin A, and vitamin D — making it an excellent source of all three. (3)

Now, while all of that is amazing, there are a few things you need to be aware of.

First is that rice milk is high in carbs, so this may not be the alternative milk you want if you’re someone worried about diabetes.

And just like it’s almond counterpart, it isn’t a good source of protein either.

(If you like rice milk and still want your protein fix, try this: Blend the milk with some peanut butter, honey, cinnamon, frozen blueberries and ice for a sweet, nutty, fiber and protein packed snack.)

Keeping your prostate healthy while still enjoying your favorite milk-based drinks and dishes can seem like a challenge at first.

But with these tips, you’ll be well on your way to staying in the best of shape for a good long while.
