Negative Impact of Excessive Dairy in our Diets
How Dairy affects the Body
Humans are the only specie to naturally drink milk after it is weaned. The cause of this is due to the fact that after a mammal is weaned, it ceases to produce Renin and so it cannot digest casein anymore. Professor Walther Veiths stated that once a baby is weaned it should never get milk again. Rennin enzymes are produced by the stomach cells of young mammals. In the article Function of Rennin Enzymes,
Rennin is secreted in large amounts right after the birth and then its production gradually drops off. It is then eclipsed in importance by the Pepsin enzyme. Pepsin and rennin are the only two enzymes produced in the stomach. Rennin is produced as the inactive prorennin. When milk enters the stomach, prorennin is activated by the hydrochloric acid in the gastric juice and converted into the active rennin enzyme.
The function of rennin enzymes is to curdle milk and separate it into semi-solid curds and liquid whey. Curdling of the milk is necessary if the milk is to be retained in the stomach long enough for the milk proteins to be digested properly. Young mammals would derive no benefit from the milk they drink if it passed through the stomach too quickly, which is what would happen if it was allowed to remain in its non-curdled state. (Arnold)
