It has been said that milk does a body good, but nothing could be further from the truth. Studies have repeatedly shown that dairy consumption has been tied to obesity, heart disease, and cancer! But we’re taught from an early age that milk and cheese are part of a healthy diet. How could that be?

Mark Kennedy, vice president of legal affairs for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll and reveals the staggering truth behind government ties to the dairy industry. What his team has unearthed in court is not a conspiracy theory—it’s a fact! You’ll learn how government-funded employees are working with companies like McDonald’s to find ways to get you to eat more cheese! It’s HUGE business.

Just how dangerous is dairy? Extremely! Barnard Medical Center registered dietitian Aly Luning explains that by taking dairy off your plate, you can significantly reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes and cut the chances of being diagnosed with certain cancers by more than 70 percent!

Plus, that whole idea about needing milk for calcium and vitamin D pretty much goes out the window!
