Sneak Peak on Organic milk


Organic Milk and Alternatives: Organic milk is not  easily found in Indian markets and they are also comparatively expensive, anywhere in the world. But its good for health to consume organic milk as the cows, buffalos that produce milk are fed and treated free of pesticides, artificial hormones and antibiotics. Its even more important for kids to consume organic food as their bodies can't cope with toxins easily. If you find organic milk in tetra packs at the stores, considering to buy them is actually feasible as organic milk stays fresh longer than non-organic milk, and so instead of throwing away ordinary milk after the expiry date, you can use the organic version without fear as they are pasteurized differently. Another affordable option would be milk labeled "rBGH-free" or "rBST-free", these products are generally cheaper and donot have artificial hormones  though not completely organic.


Pump up the potassium: According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, increasing potassium intake in conjunction with decreasing sodium may lower the risk of high blood pressure. Fill your diet with potassium rich products including fruits, vegetables and low-fat or fat-free milk or  yoghurt. But for people suffering from kidney disease: High potassium levels may cause an irregular heartbeat or a heart attack.
