Casein is a protein found in milk and other dairy products. A casein allergy occurs when your body mistakenly identifies casein as a threat to your body.

Giving up milk doesn't have to mean giving up calcium. Because even people who drink milk often don't get enough calcium in their diets, many other foods -- including juices, cereals, and rice and soy drinks -- are now enriched with calcium. Vegetables including kale, spinach, and broccoli are good sources of calcium as well. Whenever you're selecting packaged foods, always check the label for milk ingredients -- even with foods like luncheon meats and candy. In addition to casein, ingredients and foods to watch for and avoid include: Milk Proteins and Allergy Medications. Dr.

Milk Proteins and Allergy Medications

Antony Ham Pong of Ottawa has compiled some information on milk allergy and asthma/allergy medications that have trace amounts of cow's milk protein. He recommends that his patients who have cow's milk allergy not use dry powder inhalers (DPIs) with lactose because of the risk of inhaling trace amounts of milk protein causing a severe asthma attack. There are alternatives which are lactose free.

“Inhaling a trace amount of milk protein is likely far more dangerous to a milk allergic asthmatic person than ingesting the same trace amount.” With respect to milk allergy and oral meds containing lactose, the risk is far lower because the trace amounts are unlikely to cause allergic reactions except in the most severely allergic cases.

To answer the question, we teamed up with National Geographic to find the world’s longest-lived people and study them. We knew most of the answers lied within their lifestyle and environment (The Danish Twin Study established than only about 20% of how long the average person lives is determined by genes.). We found five places that met our criteria: We then assembled a team of medical researchers, anthropologists, demographers, and epidemiologists to search for evidence-based common denominators among all places. 1. 2. 3. 4. 80% Rule “Hara hachi bu” – the Okinawan, 2500-year old Confucian mantra said before meals reminds them to stop eating when their stomachs are 80 percent full. 5. 6.
