Got Non-dairy Milk?

If you read the ingredient labels on non-dairy milk alternatives you'll notice that they nearly all contain a pretty long list of ingredients (additives, preservatives, natural flavors, etc) including something called carrageenan. Carrageenan is a complex polysaccharide extract derived from seaweed that's used as a binding agent in a lot of dairy and non-dairy milks and creamy food products - and even toothpaste! 

According to Dr. Blaylock, carrageenan is pro-inflammatory and studies have shown that it induces colon cancer in animals.

"A recent study found that when carrageenan was injected in animals along with a cancer-causing chemical, tumors appeared more rapidly and in significantly higher numbers than in control animals injected with carcinogen alone. The same was seen when human breast cancers were implanted in animals along with carrageenan: the combination made the tumores grow faster and spread more widely than in control animals. As a result, carrageenan is classified as a tumor promotor." (Blaylock)
