We are talking about dairy today. Many conditions are associated with dairy, like prostate and breast cancer, making autism worse, asthma, acne, etc.

In this podcast, we will share some factual reasons why that is so and what you can do to fix it.


Keto formally means that you have measurable ketones in your bloodstream. People following a ketogenic diet often become very good at tracking their ketones and glucose numbers. They tend to become disappointed, though, when they see their ketone levels dropping to a low level, which happens as their bodies become more efficient at producing and consuming ketones.

The heart of keto is about dropping the carbs in your diet lower and lower.

William Wilder

The ketogenic diet was conceived by William Wilder back in 1921. It was then formulated by Dr. Peterman, who worked with him, and it came out in a research paper in 1928.

The ketogenic diet cures people from being diabetic for the rest of their life.


Dairy is controversial with all the keto gurus because after cutting out carbs, people tend to be able to tolerate dairy. But that does not mean that dairy does not cause problems.

A causative feature of A1 dairy

Our autoimmune systems recognize bacterial, viral, or other invaders, so they try to inactivate those things and then get rid of them. Our immune systems recognize beta-casomorphin 7 as foreign. Because the beta-casomorphin 7 is attached to the beta cells of the pancreas, it ends up killing the pancreatic cells too. That is a causative feature of A1 dairy.

Dairy is part of making things worse

There is a growing trend of people recognizing that dairy is an issue for some people. That got noticed initially with acne. It was found that when people dropped the dairy, the acne went away.

Over the past thirty years, it has been suspected that dairy is part of making things like acne worse. We have three hormone-sensitive glands: the sebaceous cyst, breast, and prostate. There is a high incidence of breast and prostate cancers with high dairy consumers, and all of them have been linked, epidemiologically, to dairy intake.

Insulin-like growth factor 1

The insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) is a generalized stimulant, and it gets synergized by the steroid hormones already present in milk. The IGF may either be absorbed from the milk, stimulated by its ingestion, or both. When ingested, it goes to the liver, and it stimulates glucose neogenesis and produces more IGF.

The strongest androgen

A component of milk is a precursor to dihydrotestosterone, which is the strongest androgen. Consuming dairy products, coupled with that component in the milk, tends to stimulate a lot of dihydrotestosterone.
