Here's What Actually Happens When You Cut Dairy Out Of Your Diet

By

Cheese: as American as apple pie.   

Americans love their dairy. In a single year, this country’s average resident consumes almost 300 pounds of the stuff; including 36 pounds of cheese, five and a half pounds of butter, 24 pounds of ice cream and around 200 pounds of milk.

Interestingly, dairy is meant only for babies, biologically speaking. More specifically, a mother’s milk is meant exclusively for infants in her same species. Following infancy, most mammals undergo a process called lactase non-persistence in which the body stops producing lactase (the enzyme necessary to break down lactose). By the time this is over, you’re left with lactose-intolerant, adult mammals suffering symptoms of lactose intolerance anytime dairy is consumed.
