Cheese and Dairy Products

Michael Smith Blog - Know The Cause Milk isn't what it was 50 years ago. An array of synthetic hormones, anti-biotics, and an unnatural diet given to dairy cows have turned cow's milk into a chemical soup whose health benefits have been widely debated.

On the slopes I was fine, but back in town (which was hovering around 40 or 50 degrees), my eyes watered, my nose stopped up, and general misery ensued. Lately, I've been eating less than optimally, working a lot, sleeping not nearly enough and forgetting to supplement.
