Listen on:

In this February 17, 2009 free audio podcast, I interview Joe Stout about some very interesting properties of goat's milk that make it much, much different than cow's milk. During the discussion, Joe includes information on five compelling reasons to think a bit more about adding goat's milk into a diet for lean muscle, fat loss, or sports performance. Included in this talk:

1. The difference in allergic reactions between goat's milk and cow's milk, and why the difference exists.

2. What happens to cow's milk during homogenization that might make it especially dangerous for athletes and people worried about cancer.

3. Why the body absorbs goat's milk protein at a much, much faster rate than cow's milk protein.

4. What causes lactose intolerance, and why this rarely happens with goat's milk.

5. Why goat's milk “matches up” to the human body better than cow's milk.

6. Where you can get goat's milk if you don't have access to a raw, local source. Just click here.
