A woman I put 100% stock in, wrote way back in 1905, nearly 120 years ago, that CHEESE is “wholly unfit for food.” This woman had a 3rd grade education, and knew little about science, but she was a humble woman who God was able to use to educate and instruct people with TRUTH. During her lifetime, she wrote more than 5000 Periodicals and 40 books, and she is the most translated female non-fiction author in the history of literature, as well as the most translated American non-fiction author of either gender. Her name is Ellen White.

I have found from the study of her writings, over the last 50 years, that EVERYTHING she wrote, eventually SCIENCE comes to the same conclusion.  She was just 100+ years AHEAD of her time.  Because she wasn’t a Scientist, she often didn’t know the WHY’s of some of the things God showed her 100+ years ago. In this post, I’d like to share with you what she said about eating CHEESE, and what Science says today.

“If milk is used, it should be thoroughly sterilized; with this precaution, there is less danger of contracting disease from its use. Butter is less harmful when eaten on cold bread than when used in cooking; but, as a rule, it is better to dispense with it altogether. Cheese is still more objectionable; it is wholly unfit for food.” Ministry of Healing, pg. 302.

So, WHY is CHEESE “wholly unfit for food”?

I recently read an article about what gives cheese its various flavors….it was very enlightening, and well, I am very thankful that I don’t eat cheese!   If you really want to know what gives cheese its flavor, please take the time to read this article ~ Unless you are OK with eating mold, fungi and bacteria.

“Like microbes on a rotten log in the woods, the bacteria and fungi in cheese break down their environment — in this case, the milk fats and proteins. This makes cheeses creamy and gives them flavor.”

Does the sound of eating microbes, bacteria and mold sound appetizing to you?  It sure doesn’t to me!  Have you ever wondered why, if/when you have driven in Amish Country, why is it that they sell so much cheese?  It’s because they have no electric, no way to keep their milk cold, so the bacteria in Amish milk is far higher than bacteria in conventional milk (Amish don’t believe in sterilizing their milk either, so they start out with a much higher bacteria count than Conventional Dairy farms), the higher the bacteria count, the “better cheese” the milk makes!  That is why so much of the Amish milk is turned into cheese ~ their milk is so high in bacteria that it can’t be sold to the dairy industry….but it makes WONDERFUL cheese! (If you like the thoughts of mold, bacteria and microbes!

Let’s look at CHEESE from another angle….What health problems are related to Cheese?  In the 1970’s, people ate an average of 11 lbs of cheese. Today, people eat 35+ lbs of cheese!

Cheese causes:

1.    Indigestion & Heartburn

2.    Cheese is usually high in Saturated Fat – the kind of fat that causes heart attacks and strokes.

3.    Cheese is high in cholesterol, too much cholesterol also causes heart attacks and strokes.

4.    Cheese is often high in sodium, resulting in high blood pressure.

5.    Cheese is associated with higher risks of prostate cancer.

Do you suffer from Chronic Constipation?

Guess what WebMD says the most constipating food is? You guessed it! CHEESE. Cheese is extremely constipating, it literally rots in your gut….  16 percent of Americans and a third of those older than 60 suffer from chronic constipation. Giving up Dairy products and Cheese will go a long way in alleviating constipation.

I hope I’ve convinced you that there really isn’t anything GOOD about Cheese except the taste. Whatever protein is in it, you can get that from a much healthier source.
