17. Funny thing is, in places in the world where there isn't any

Homogenization of the milk, and it is left much purer than all the contaminates that Americans are drinking with each glass, the rates of heart attack are lower.

The Danish people have one of the most dairy intensive diets on the face of the earth. But there, the milk doesn't endanger their hearts due to the fact that the Danish don't allow homogenization process to be part of the picture.

Here's what homogenisation is about:

Homogenization is a process that came about in the Twentieth Century and some people say it is "the worst thing that dairymen did to milk." Whenever milk is homogenized, the product is squeezed through very fine filters at pressures exceeding 4,000 pounds per square inch. Here is the most important aspec t to consider regarding the process: during this process, the fat globules are made smaller by a factor of ten times or more. These fat molecules then become evenly dispersed throughout the milk.

It is the fact that the dairy particles are made so small that offers the particles the ability to affect our heart muscles. Without homogenisation, our nation would probably have rates of heart attack is line with those of the Danish people.
