Recode talks dairy products and your health: It’s the healthiest way to consume them
Recode host Kara Swisher is here to discuss dairy products.
(Daron Taylor/The Washington Post) The topic is the future of the world, a topic that has been hotly debated since President Trump took office.
As a vegan, Swisher said she is more comfortable eating a variety of foods with a lot of protein.
But that’s not always the case.
She has been vegan for almost a decade.
Here, she explains why.

(The Washington Times) The issue is the question of who will pay for the dairy products Americans buy with the government, and how to pay for it.
A recent Associated Press analysis found that as much as $60 billion per year could be lost due to the federal government.
Dairy companies argue that they’re just following government regulations, and that they are providing an essential service.
(AP) But the dairy-producing country of the United States is not the only one grappling with the health and nutritional needs of its citizens.
Swisher, who grew up in the Bay Area, said she has been a vegetarian for decades and has no health issues.
But she’s concerned about the impact of the government’s stance on her health.
“Dairy is a huge part of my diet,” she said.
“I’m a big fan of milk and I don’t eat dairy products.”
In her research, Swishers found that her overall health improves when she eats dairy products that are not high in protein.
“It’s a big part of what keeps me going,” she told Recode.
“There’s this whole conversation about what’s in our food and what is in our health.”
Dairy product companies say that they follow all government regulations and guidelines.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has a strict policy against the use of antibiotics in dairy products as well as the addition of preservatives and artificial sweeteners.
Swishers and her husband, a former NFL player, have been eating dairy products for years, and they’re both lactose intolerant.
“If I can’t eat it, I’m not going to be able to live my life,” Swisher told Recio.
Swishing said that while she understands the government has its reasons for trying to limit dairy consumption, she does not think the issue is necessarily about food.
“You have to ask yourself, is the product healthier than other food choices?
Is it better than another option?
Is there a better alternative?” she said, noting that many of her friends have decided to eat more dairy than they do now.”
The idea of being vegan is that you can’t do everything, but you can do a lot,” she continued.
“People don’t realize that a lot can be done with dairy.
People can go vegan and eat less.
People should eat less.”
