The Myths of Milk Consumption
by Michelle Johnson, N.D.
"We drink cow's milk just because we have always done it, but upon close inspection, we can see that the consumption of cow's milk is nonsensical."
Don't Drink Your Milk!
by Joseph Mercola, D.O.
"Cow's milk is the number one allergic food in this country. It has been well documented as a cause in diarrhea, cramps, bloating, gas, gastrointestinal bleeding, iron-deficiency anemia, skin rashes, atherosclerosis, and acne. It is the primary cause of recurrent ear infections in children. It has also been linked to insulin dependent diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, infertility, and leukemia."
Is Dairy Dangerous?
by Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman N.D.
"There is a considerable amount of scientific data linking heart disease, arthritis, obesity, and cancer, particularly breast cancer, to a dairy-containing high fat diet. Finland, which is among the highest consumers of diary worldwide, has one and a half times the mortality rate from heart disease of the United States."
Criticism of Milk and Breast Cancer Study
by Robert Cohen
"Often times, the conclusions from published studies contradict their own data."
Dairy and Calcium
Quoting a Harvard Nurses' Health study published in the American Journal of Public Health: "Drinking milk did not protect the participants against bone breaks. In fact, those who drank the most milk (three or more glasses a day) had more fractures than those who barely touched the stuff (less than one glass per week)."
Milk and the Cancer Connection
by Hans R. Larsen, International Health News
"Despite assurances from the FDA and industry-paid consultants there are now just too many serious questions surrounding the use of milk from cows treated with synthetic growth hormone to allow its continued sale. Bovine growth hormone is banned in Australia, New Zealand and Japan. The European Union has maintained its moratorium on the use of rBGH and milk products from BST-treated cows are not sold in countries within the Union. Canada has also so far resisted pressure from the United States and the biotechnology lobby to approve the use of rBGH commercially."
Milk and Other Dietary Influences on Coronary Heart Disease
by William B. Grant, Ph.D.
"These findings strongly suggest that to reduce the risk of Coronary Heart Disease mortality among males of all ages and females above the age of 65, non-fat milk consumption should be reduced and vitamin B supplementation should be increased. Consumption of simple sugars should be reduced by females below the age of 74, and probably by males and females of all ages."
