    Dangers Of Milk And

    Dairy Products - The FactsBy Dave Rietz

    Webmaster www.notmilk.com7-6-2

    Yes... milk is Mother Nature's "perfect food" ...for a calf... until it is weaned.Everything you know about cow's milk and dairy is probably part of a Dairyindustry MYTH.Cow's milk is an unhealthy fluid from diseased animals that contains a wide rangeof dangerous and disease-causing substances that have a cumulative negative

    effect on all who consume it.MILK'S BASIC CONTENTS*ALL* cow's milk (regular and 'organic') has 59 active hormones, scores ofallergens, fat and cholesterol.Most cow's milk has measurable quantities of herbicides, pesticides, dioxins (up to200 times the safe levels), up to 52 powerful antibiotics (perhaps 53, with LS-50),

    blood, pus, feces, bacteria and viruses. (Cow's milk can have traces of anything thecow ate... including such things as radioactive fallout from nuke testing ... (the 50'sstrontium-90 problem).LEADING CAUSES OF DEATH IN AMERICAhttp://webapp.cdc.gov/sasweb/ncipc/leadcaus.html (1998)Rank Total Description

    9 26,182 Nephritis (Bright's disease: inflammation of thekidneys)10 25,192 Liver Disease (think alcohol and other toxins)(2a and 7a were added for completeness)(note: Number 13 on the CDC list is -18,272 Homicide & Legal Intervention-. It iscurious that the CDC would readily list law enforcement and homicides... and notthe 250,000 deaths caused by the medical system!)CANCER FUELOf those 59 hormones one is a powerful GROWTH hormone called Insulin- likeGrowth Factor ONE (IGF-1). By a freak of nature it is identical in cows andhumans. Consider this hormone to be a "fuel cell" for any cancer... (the medicalworld says IGF-1 is a key factor in the rapid growth and proliferation of breast,prostate and colon cancers, and we suspect that most likely it will be found topromote ALL cancers).IGF-1 is a normal part of ALL milk... the newborn is SUPPOSED to grow quickly!What makes the 50% of obese American consumers think they need MOREgrowth? Consumers don't think anything about it because they do not have a clueto the problem... nor do most of our doctors.(See http://www.notmilk.com/igf1time.txt for a time line)

    QUANTITYEach bite of hard cheese has TEN TIMES whatever was in that sip of milk...because it takes ten pounds of milk to make one pound of cheese. Each bite of icecream has 12 times ... and every swipe of butter 21 times whatever is contained inthe fat molecules in a sip of milk.MONSANTO AND rbGH (Posilac)

    Monsanto Chemical Co., maker of fine poisons such as DDT, agent orange,Roundup and more... spent around half a billion dollars inventing a shot to injectinto cows... to force a cow to produce MORE milk (for an already glutted taxpayersubsidized market).

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    Unfortunately, they created *FIVE* errors in their Frankenstein Posilac (rbGH)shot that direly affected all test animals... but that important report (Richard,Odaglia & Deslex, 1989) has been hidden from everyone under Clinton's TradeSecrets act. The Canadians read enough of this report (before it was stolen) toreject rbGH for their country.

    Monsanto's Posilac creates additional IGF-1 in milk: up to 80% more.The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) insists that IGF-1 is destroyed in thestomach. If that were true, the FDA has proven that breast feeding cannot work.Common sense says their "finding" is ridiculous because this growth factor DOESmake the baby calf grow (rapidly, as mother natured intended). Visit the DairyEducation Board at http://www.notmilk.com/deb/100399.html to review a DAIRYstudy that confirms what the FDA has lied about this for years.

    IGF-1 INCREASESThis study involved two groups. One group consuming 12 ounces of milk a dayand the other consuming the USDA recommended allowance of 24 ounces (threecups). This report notes that the participants consuming 12 ounces more milk perday... HAD A 10% RISE IN IGF-1 IN THEIR BLOOD SERUM! Now, considerthat PER DAY, from ALL sources, the typical milk/dairy consumer ingestsapproximately 39% of daily diet from dairy... and that 10% increase becomes the"tip of the iceberg". We have NO idea of the non-dairy versus full-dairy differencebut considering cancer rates... it has to be significant.FATWhole milk 49% of the calories are from fat."2%" milk 35% of the calories are from fat.Cheddar cheese 74% of the calories are from fat.Butter 100% of the calories are from fat.

    Most folks suspect that butter is all fat. Most folks have no concept of the just howmuch fat is in the rest of milk and dairy. Perhaps the 54% of Americans who areobese need to comprehend that milk, ice cream, cheeses, yogurts, and all theOTHER products that use milk derivatives (casein, whey, lactose, colostrum) aremost likely a significant cause for their weight and health problem.CALCIUM

    Calcium? Where do the COWS get calcium for their big bones? Yes... from plants!The calcium they consume from plants has a large amount of magnesium...necessary for the body to absorb and USE the calcium.

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    The calcium in cow's milk is basically useless because it has insufficientmagnesium content (those nations with the highest amount of milk/dairyconsumption also have the highest rates of osteoporosis. Proof? How about acontrolled study of 78,000 nurses over a period of 12 years?Read more about it at:

    http://www.notmilk.com/deb/030799.html Article on the 78,000 nurse studyhttp://www.notmilk.com/deb/092098.html CALCIUM AND BONE DISEASEhttp://www.notmilk.com/badbones.html WHO GETS BONE DISEASE?http://www.notmilk.com/bonehead.txt CRIPPLING BONEHEADShttp://www.notmilk.com/calcium/index.html Consolidated infoCows milk has three times the calcium as does human breast milk. No matter,neither are very usable because in order to be absorbed and used their MUST be anequal quantity of MAGNESIUM (as exists in the greens that cows eat to get all the

    calcium they need for their big bones). Milk has only enough magnesium to absorbaround 11% (33mg per cup) of calcium.Per the USDA 8 ounces (one cup) of cows milk contains:Calcium, Ca mg 291.336Magnesium, Mg mg 32.794The USDA recommends 1200mg of calcium per day. The USDA recommended

    three cups of milk a day only have 900mg of calcium. Some argue that only 1/3 ofthe magnesium is necessary. Mother nature seems to suggest it should be one toone. If the ratio for proper absorption were 1/3 magnesium to one calcium then nomore than 300mg of that 900mg of calcium is usable. If, in fact, it is a one to oneratio... only 98.38mg of calcium is usable.It is not a matter of how much calcium one ingests... but how much one does notlose.

    PROTEINMilk can be thought of as "liquid meat" because of its high protein content which,in concert with other proteins, may actually LEACH calcium from the body.Countries that consume high protein diets (meat, milk and dairy) have the highestrates of osteoporosis.THE 'WHOLESOME' PROTEIN MYTH

    87% of milk is water. That makes it VERY expensive water.Broken down into its basic groups... WHOLE MILK is:

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    WATER FAT CASEIN OTHER PROTEIN87% 3.25% 4% 1% 4.75(note: that is 3.25% "milkfat" which includes the 87% water.)80% of the protein in milk is casein. Casein is a powerful binder... a

    polymer used to make plastics... and a glue that is better used to makesturdy furniture or hold beer bottle labels in place. It is inthousands of processed foods as a binder... as "something" caseinate.Casein is a powerful allergen... a histamine that creates lots ofmucus. The only medicine in Olympic athlete Flo-Jo's body was Benedryl,a power antihistamine she took to combat her last meal... pizza.For the whole Flo-Jo story:

    http://www.notmilk.com/deb/092198.html,http://www.notmilk.com/deb/111598.html andhttp://www.notmilk.com/deb/112398.html for the whole story.BACTERIACow's milk is allowed to have feces in it. This is a major source for bacteria. Milkis typically pasteurized more than once before it gets to your table... each time foronly 15 seconds at 162 degrees Fahrenheit.

    To sanitize water one is told to boil it (212 degrees F) for several minutes. That is atremendous disparity, isn't it!Keep in mind that at room temperature the number of bacteria in milk DOUBLEaround every 20 minutes. No wonder milk turns rotten very quickly.PUS

    ONE cubic centimeter (cc) of commercial cow's milk is allowed to have up to750,000 somatic cells (common name is "PUS") and 20,000 live bacteria... beforeit is kept off the market.That amounts to a whopping 20 million live squiggly bacteria and up to 750MILLION pus cells per liter (bit more than a quart).1 cup = 236.5882cc 177,441,150 pus cells ~ 4,731,600 bacteria24 oz (3 glasses) = 532,323,450 pus cells ~ 14,220,000 bacteria

    (the "recommended" daily intake)The EU and the Canadians allow for a less "tasty" 400,000,000 pus cells per liter.

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    Typically these levels are lower... but they COULD reach these levels and still getto YOUR table.CHOLESTEROLThe cholesterol content of those three glasses of milk is equal to what one wouldget from 53 slices of bacon. Do you know of any doctor who recommends that

    much bacon per day?KOSHERIs cow's milk and dairy "Kosher"? Consider this:"D-3 always is derived from an animal. The sunlight reaction that converts 7-dehydrocholesterol to vitamin D-3 is a 'pure' chemical reaction that occurs in yourskin in certain cells."

    "The provitamin known as 7-dehydrocholesterol is extracted and isolated from theskins of mammals and purified." (Marian Herbert of the Vitamin D Workshop U ofC)Vitamin D-3 can come from four different sources:Pig skin, sheep skin, raw fish liver, and pig brains. Most of the time, Vitamin D-3is extracted from pig skin and sold to dairy processors.

    Short answer to "is milk kosher" - probably not.OTHER 'STUFF'Fat and cholesterol. Lots of it. Per the dairy influenced USDA "food pyramid" allmilk, dairy and meats should represent no more than 8% of the diet. Statistically,by volume of sales in a nation of 281 million Americans, it works out to almost40% of the diet for MILK AND DAIRY.. without the meat.

    The milk of each of the over 4,700 mammals on earth is formulated specifically forthat species. There are special lactoferrins and immunoglobulins (cow specificimmunizing stuff) that in humans serve as allergens.LEUKEMIAAccording to Hoards Dairyman (Volume 147, number 4)... 89% of America's dairyherds have the leukemia virus. (more at


  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    The protein lactalbumin, has been identified as a key factor in diabetes (and amajor reason for NOT giving cows milk to infants).CROHN'S DISEASEMycobacterium paratuberculosis causes a bovine disease called "Johne's."

    Cows diagnosed with Johne's Disease have diarrhea, and heavy fecal shedding ofbacteria. This bacteria becomes cultured in milk, and is not destroyed bypasteurization. Occasionally, the milk-borne bacteria will begin to grow in thehuman host, and the results are irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn's Disease.MAD COW DISEASEThere may also be prions (pronounced PREons) in the milk and meat. This iscrystalline substance that acts like a virus... with an "incubation" period of from 5

    to 30 years. The end result is MAD COW DISEASE!HOMOGENIZATIONLarge fat molecules cannot get through the intestinal wall into the bloodstream.The cream no longer rises... because homogenization breaks up those largemolecules into small ones that DO get into the bloodstream! This becomes anexpressway for any fat-borne toxins (lead, dioxin's, etc.) into your (otherwise)most protected organs.

    CUMULATIVE EFFECTSHow does this impact humans who consume cow's milk and dairy? Obesity (over50% of Americans and rising), heart disease, cancer, allergies, digestive problems,diabetes, asthma, desensitization to antibiotics, behavioral problems, and theconstant ingestion of dioxin's, herbicides, pesticides (and anything else the coweats that is not good for any critter), that winds up getting stored in HUMAN fat...is not healthy by any measure.

    Those who resist believing the truth should understand that MOST of the world'spopulation CANNOT tolerate the lactose in cow's milk. Up to 95% of the blackpopulation, around 53% of the Hispanics, etc.) So much for cow's milk being"natures perfect food" for humans! Mother nature knows better.Common sense question: Where was this massive "milk is a must" beforerefrigeration, pasteurization and mass transportation? Back when cows gave only1-4 pounds a day it was quickly made into BUTTER and cheese! Now that thosesame cows have been tweaked and shot-up with Posilac to produce up to 55 ormore pounds of milk per day... almost all year long... it is suddenly (after manythousands of years) a daily "staple". NOT!

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    POLLUTIONThere are around 9.2 million dairy cows in the United states. Each dairy cowingests around 330 pounds of feed (perhaps 50 pounds) and water (around 280pounds or 33 gallons) per day. Allowing for the best dairy production of 55 poundsof milk per day (over ten times what mother nature designed the cow to produce)

    that means that what remains becomes "slurry".That means around 275 pound of urine and feces per day... per cow, for a dailytotal of 2.53 BILLION pounds of pollution. Per year... that amounts to around 923billion pounds of UNTREATED pollution entering our streams, rivers, lakes... anddrinking water systems.Cows are hot-blooded mammals. Like all other mammals they pass gas. Somewhatlike elephants their compartmented digestive system is rather inefficient... which

    leads to the creation of MORE gas. During a Discovery Channel documentary onelephants a parting quip was that the average adult elephant passes enoughmethane gas per day to run a car about 20 miles.Cows are not much better. The English New Scientist (page 5 -31.8.96) mentionsthat cattle produce around 48 kilograms (105 pounds) of methane each per yearand that more bubbles out of the animals' manure. Dairy cows eat more becausethey produce milk. With 9.2 million dairy cows times a minimum of 100 pounds ofmethane gas per year... that amounts almost a billion pounds of methane gasreleased into the atmosphere each year. With around 100 million beef cattle... pigs,sheep, and other "factory farmed" animals it should not be difficult to fathom theextent of this problem.This means that "Beef is a greenhouse-intensive food" and a major cause of globalwarming (with dairy a significant part of the problem).Another major point is:

    "Milk is a very strong pollutant: it is about 400 times more polluting than untreatedsewage. To put it another way, 1,000 gallons of milk has the same pollutingpotential as the untreated sewage from a town of 7,000 people." Morlais Owen.Chief Scientist for Welsh Water. North Wales Weekly News. 24.3.88.SOME QUESTIONS ANSWEREDQ: What is WHEY?

    A: Whey results when the FAT and CASEIN are removed from milk.In making cheese, the curds become the cheese.

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    Whey's main components are bovine serum albumin and lactalbumin.There are other hormones contained in whey.Q: What happens to the:59 hormones, scores of allergens herbicides, pesticides, dioxinsup to 52 antibiotics

    When made into cheese?A: Everything gets concentrated.When made into butter?A: The allergens get lost: but the dioxin's andpesticides and antibiotics remain in the fat.In the digestive system?A: Steroid hormones survive, as do dioxins and antibiotics.In homogenized milk, protein hormones survive... depending upon thegastric pH, some protein hormones in cheese survive, but not all...eleven steroid hormones survive.AND WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?Eventually, everything is broken down, but not before the chemical messengers(hormones) "deliver their message."Each of those hormones and proteins acts differently and has different rates ofdegradation. BOTTOM LINE... they all survive to a certain degree... and theeffects are cumulative.OTHER HEATH-TRASHING SUBSTANCES IN COW'S MILKWhey: Blood proteins.

    Say 'No Way' ToMilk Whey ProteinFrom Robert Cohen

    [email protected]

    After fat and casein are removed from milk, dairy processors are left with whey

    protein. Whey is composed of bovine blood proteins. Serum albumen.Lactalbumen. Dead white blood cells. Hormonal residues including estrogen andprogesterone.The body's reaction to a foreign protein is to destroy that antigen-like invader withan antibody. For those individuals unfortunate enough to possess a genetic pre-disposition to such an event, the antibody then turns upon one's own cells. That iswhat is known as an auto-immune response.

    In the case of diabetes and Multiple Sclerosis (MS), the body's response to wheyproteins is to attack the outer membrane protecting nerve cells, or the myelinsheath.It has long been established that early exposure to bovine proteins is a trigger forinsulin dependent diabetes mellitus. Researchers have made that same milkconsumption connection to MS. The July 30, 1992 issue of the New EnglandJournal of Medicine first reported the diabetes autoimmune response milkconnection:"Patients with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus produce antibodies to cow milkproteins that participate in the development of islet dysfunction... Taken as a

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    whole, our findings suggest that an active response in patients with IDDM (to thebovine protein) is a feature of the auto-immune response."On December 14, 1996, The Lancet revealed:"Cow's milk proteins are unique in one respect: in industrialized countries they arethe first foreign proteins entering the infant gut, since most formulations for babies

    are cow milk-based. The first pilot stage of our IDD prevention study found thatoral exposure to dairy milk proteins in infancy resulted in both cellular andimmune response...this suggests the possible importance of the gut immunesystem to the pathogenesis of IDD."THE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS/MILK CONNECTIONThe April 1, 2001 issue of the Journal of Immunology contained a study linkingMS to milk consumption.

    Michael Dosch, M.D., and his team of researchers determined that multiplesclerosis and type I (juvenile) diabetes mellitus are far more closely linked thanpreviously thought. Dosch attributes exposure to cow milk protein as a risk factorin the development of both diseases for people who are genetically susceptible.According to Dosch:"We found that immunologically, type I diabetes and multiple sclerosis are almostthe same - in a test tube you can barely tell the two diseases apart. We found that

    the autoimmunity was not specific to the organ system affected by the disease.Previously it was thought that in MS autoimmunity would develop in the centralnervous system, and in diabetes it would only be found in the pancreas. We foundthat both tissues are targeted in each disease."MULTIPLE SCLEROSISMultiple sclerosis affects approximately 300,000 Americans. Two-thirds of thosediagnosed with MS are women. Most researchers believe that MS is anautoimmune disease. Auto means "self."WHO DOES NOT GET MS?It is interesting to note that Eskimos and Bantus (50 million individuals living inEast Africa) rarely get MS. Neither do those native North and South AmericanIndian or Asian populations who consume no cow's milk or dairy products.WHO GETS MS?

    The British medical journal Lancet reported that dairy-rich diets filled have beenclosely linked to the development of MS. (The Lancet 1974;2:1061)

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    A study published in the journal Neuroepidemiology revealed an associationbetween eating dairy foods and an increased prevalence of MS.(Neuroepidemiology 1992;11:304-12.)MS researcher, Luther Lindner, M.D., a pathologist at Texas A & M UniversityCollege of Medicine, wrote:

    "It might be prudent to limit the intake of milk and milk products."Women are targeted by dairy industry scare tactics that offer misinformationregarding osteoporosis. Two-thirds of MS victims are women. As milk and cheeseconsumption increase along population lines, so too does an epidemic number ofMS cases. The numbers add up. The clues add up. The science supportsepidemiological studies. Got diabetes? Got MS? The milk connection has beenestablished.

    The Pus-Bacteria MoustacheMarketing Milk & Disease

    By John McDougall, MD

    (65 references)6-11-3

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    The Dairy Industry is really big business, with sales of over $11 billion for milkand $16 billion for cheese annually in the USA alone, so you might expect hardline marketing from them, but would you expect them to aggressively sell theirproducts if they were known to be harmful to people, especially to women andchildren?

    The Dairy Management Inc., whose purpose is to build demand for dairy productson behalf of America's 80,000-plus dairy producers, has just released the DairyCheckoff 2003 Unified Marketing Plan (UMP) with a budget of $165.7 million.(1)The United Marketing Plan explains, "This ongoing program area (referring to thesection Dairy Image/Confidence) aims to protect and enhance consumerconfidence in dairy products and the dairy industry. A major component involvesconducting and communicating the results of dairy nutrition research showing the

    healthfulness of dairy products, as well as issues and crisis management." (1)(Most likely, I fall under the heading of "issues and crisis management.")A significant portion of the money from the 2003 Unified Marketing Plan isspecifically targeted to children ages 6 to 12 and their mothers. The goal is "toguide school-age children to become life-long consumers of dairy products, 2003activities will target students, parents, educators and school foodserviceprofessionals." (1) (Similar words and intentions have been attributed to thetobacco industry.) All this marketing is working, too: annual fluid milkconsumption among kids 6 to 12 increased to 28 gallons per capita, the highestlevel in 10 years. Children under 18 drink 46% of the milk consumed in the USA.Realize that when I say milk in this article, I'm also implicating all dairy productsthat are made from milk: non-fat milk, low-fat milk, buttermilk, cheeses, cottagecheese, yogurt, ice cream, whey, kefir, and butter. All of them share a similarnutritional profile (plus or minus the fat, protein, and sugar), and as a result, all ofthem contribute to a wide range of health problems.

    Will the UMP Inform You of the Contamination? E. Coli, AIDS and LeukemiaViruses?Last month I left you with some very disturbing facts about the contamination ofmilk with loads of bacteria and millions of white blood cells (pus cells) which arethere to help fight off the infections found in cows and milk (see the April 2003Newsletter found at http://www.drmcdougall.com ).

    Will the 2003 Unified Marketing Plan specify money to inform you of thisupsetting information? You will never see an advertisement with a famous moviestar proudly wearing a white mustache, properly labeled as containing 300,000

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    white blood cells and 25,000 bacteria.Dairy products were the foods most often recalled by the U.S. Food and DrugAdministration (FDA) from the period October 1, 1993 through September 30,1998 because of contamination with infectious agents, mostly bacteria. (2)They are commonly tainted with disease-causing bacteria, such as salmonella,

    staphylococci, listeria, deadly E. coli O1573 and Mycobacterium paratuberculosis(4) (possibly one of the agents causing Crohn's disease; a form of life-threateningchronic colitis), as well as viruses known to cause lymphoma and leukemia-likediseases, and immune deficiency in cattle.AIDS and Leukemia Viruses Dairy cattle are infected with bovineimmunodeficiency viruses (BIV) and bovine leukemia viruses (BLV), worldwide.(Bovine immunodeficiency viruses can also be properly referred to as bovineAIDS viruses.)

    In the United States, results show an average 40% of beef herds and 64% of dairyherds are infected with BIV. (5)In Canada (6-7), the infection rate is 70% and in Argentina (8) the rate is 84% forBLV.Herds infected with the BIV are usually infected with the leukemia virus (BLV)also. (5)

    Both viruses can cross species lines thus infecting other animals, like sheep, goats,and chimpanzees *" and they develop disease. (5)Nationwide and worldwide, leukemia is more common in the higher dairyconsuming populations. (9,10)An increased incidence of leukemia has been found among dairy farmers inmultiple studies. (11-14)

    BIV infection has been reported in a person. (15)The bovine leukemia virus has been classified in the same group as the Human T-cell Leukemia/Lymphotropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1), which is known to causeleukemia and lymphomas in humans (Adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma). (16)BIV is structurally and genetically closely related to human immunodeficiencyvirus (HIV) type-1 (the virus causing human AIDS). (17)

    Pasteurization kills many types of microorganisms, but it is not foolproof. There isalso concern that pasteurization may break the viruses into fragments that may

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    become even more dangerous. (18)Has it been shown that the bovine AIDS and/or leukemia viruses will infect youand cause disease? No. Nor has it been proved that they will not. Compared to theefforts to try to convince you of the bone-building benefits of milk, almost nothinghas been spent to establish whether or not it is safe to feed your family dairyproducts teeming with bovine immunodeficiency and bovine leukemia viruses

    (and/or viral fragments). Some countries take this matter very seriously. Forexample, in many European countries, health officials have conducted programs toeradicate infected herds; Finland' program has successfully eradicated BLV fromits cattle. (19)If you live in a region with a high incidence of herd infection with these virusesyou can be pretty sure you will be consuming dairy products containing wholeviruses or fragments of these viruses, since the milk from many dairy farms ismixed in large vats at the dairy factory before processing and packaging. Since theindustry will not act responsibly in many countries, consumers are left with onechoice: eliminate all dairy products from their diet. If eliminating dairy productswould prevent even a small risk of human disease, it would be well worthwhile,especially since, as you learned in the April 2003 McDougall Newsletter, they arecompletely unnecessary for excellent health.Will the UMP Market the Pain and Suffering Caused Children?The Dairy Management Inc. has specifically targeted children in their campaign.(1) This will raise no public concern, because most people consider cow's milk thehealthiest of all food choices, especially when it comes to children. Over 25% ofchildren are overweight in Western countries and cow's milk, cheese, yogurt, icecream, butter, and sour cream, with all their fat and calories, contribute greatly tothis deadly epidemic. Many of these overweight children are now developingtype-2 diabetes. However, the most common variety of diabetes found in childrenis still type-1 or insulin dependent diabetes (IDDM).

    Type-1 Diabetes The evidence incriminating cow's milk consumption in the causeof type-1 diabetes is sufficient to cause the American Academy of Pediatrics toissue these warnings, "Early exposure of infants to cow's milk protein may be animportant factor in the initiation of the beta cell (insulin-producing cells of thepancreas) destructive process in some individuals." (20) "The avoidance of cow'smilk protein for the first several months of life may reduce the later developmentof IDDM or delay its onset in susceptible people." (20)Exposure to cow's milk protein early in life, when the intestinal tract is immature,

    sometimes results in the milk protein entering the blood stream where antibodiesto this foreign substance, cow's milk, are made by the immune system.Unfortunately, these same antibodies also attack the insulin- producing cells of the

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    pancreas. By glassful of milk after spoonful of ice cream, over a period of about 5to 7 years, the child destroys his or her own pancreas *" and is left with alifelong, life-threatening, handicap: diabetes. The pancreas is forever destroyedand the child will have to take insulin shots daily. Complications, such asblindness, kidney failure, and heart disease will be a real threat during his or hershortened lifespan.(See my July 2002 McDougall Newsletter for a discussion oftype-1 diabetes).

    Constipation Not as life-threatening as diabetes, but for some as mentally andphysically distressing, is chronic constipation. As a doctor who has cared forhundreds of children, I can tell you they suffer with pain, bleeding, hemorrhoids,and embarrassment. The causal effects of cow*s milk were clearly demonstratedin a study of 65 severely constipated children published in the New EnglandJournal of Medicine. (21)These boys and girls complained of only one bowel movement every 3 to 15 daysand many didn't even respond to strong laxatives (lactulose and mineral oil).Forty-four of the 65 (68%) found relief of their constipation when taken off thecow's milk. Evidence of inflammation of the bowel was found on biopsy, and analfissures and pain were commonly associated with the constipation "elimination ofthe cow's milk solved these problems."When cow's milk was reintroduced into their diet 8 to 12 months later, all of thechildren developed constipation within 5 to 10 days. For constipation alone, cow's

    milk should be banned from the School Milk Programs, worldwide.Rhinitis and Otitis Media The multitude of snotty-nosed kids frequently visitingthe pediatrician's office for ear infections is much more obvious than theconstipated crowd, and these problems less devastating than type-1 diabetes, butthese complaints also can be due to consuming the foreign proteins intended forcalves. (22-25) In addition, these same children are likely to suffer fromgastroesophageal reflux, asthma and/or eczema from their unnatural habit ofdrinking cow's milk.

    Diseases of Foreign Protein Many conditions can be traced back to reactions tocow's milk. Milk contains more than 25 different proteins that can induce adversereactions in humans. (26) Our immune system perceives these foreign proteins asalien invaders, like a virus or bacteria, and launches an attack in response, as inthe case of type-1 diabetes discussed above and many other allergic andautoimmune diseases.DISEASES CAUSED BY, OR LINKED TO, DAIRY PROTEINS General: Loss

References are available through the National Library ofMedicine, http://www.nlm.nih.gov - Search cow's milk and any of the diseaseslisted above.All dairy products contain milk proteins, including skim milk, yogurt, cheese, andbutter, and many butter substitutes. Milk proteins are listed in packaged foodproducts with a variety of names, such as milk solids, skim milk powder, casein,caseinates, whey, and albumin. Milk is also often put into packaged foods and not

    declared on the label - this is illegal and punishable by FDA action.Even with all of this disease in children the American School Food ServiceAssociation and the dairy industry have developed a School Milk Pilot Test todemonstrate that kids will drink more milk in school if certain productenhancements are made. (27)The result was milk sales increased by an average of 18 percent and consumptionincreased by 35 percent when schools provided flavored milks and other package

    enhancements. (28)The UMP Will Try to Deceive You about the Fattening Nature of Dairy Foods."Independent research confirming dairy's role in weight reduction is mounting,"said Dr. Greg Miller, senior vice president of nutrition and scientific affairs for theDairy Checkoff. (29) "This helps to position dairy foods as part of the solution toAmerica's growing obesity epidemic." And Miller added, "Informing the publicabout dairy's role in the fight against obesity will help increase consumption ofmilk, cheese and yogurt, among other dairy products."Shouldn't the idea of milk acting as an "antiobesity" food strike you as

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    fundamentally contradictory? After all, the biologic purpose of cow's milk is toprovide large amounts of energy and nutrients to grow the young animal from 60to 600 pounds. So how does milk become a weight loss product in the 21stcentury? This idea began with the observation that underprivileged people, whohave poor diets in general, are often obese, and also consume few dairy products.(30) Some experiments that followed showed people and animals on calorie-restricted diets lost a small amount of extra weight when calcium or dairy foods

    were part of their diet.The "antiobesity" effects of dairy are difficult to explain, but may be due tocalcium binding fat in the intestine, preventing its absorption. (30)A thorough search of the literature for properly designed studies shows only oneof 17 randomized studies found weight loss in people taking calcium pills, and ofthe nine randomized studies where fluid milk was added, two showed significantweight gain, and none showed significant loss. (31)In one study funded by a grant from the International Dairy Foods Association,204 healthy men and women were asked to increase their intake of skim or 1%milk by three cups a day for 12 weeks; those consuming the extra milk gained anaverage of 1.32 pounds (0.6 Kg). (32) Can you imagine what their weight gainwould have been if they had been asked to add whole milk, cheese, butter, and icecream to their diet, instead of skim and low-fat 1% milk?The result of all this research was well summed up by one of the dairy industry'sfrequent spokespersons at the Dairy Management Inc. sponsored Symposium:Dairy Product Components and Weight Regulation, held April 21, 2002 in NewOrleans, with this statement, "In conclusion, the data available from randomizedtrials of dairy product or calcium supplementation provide little support for aneffect in reducing body weight or fat mass." (31)Yet the consumer will hear from Dr. Miller and the rest of the industry, eat moredairy products and you will lose weight.

    Dairy products are loaded with fats that are easily stored under your skin as "bodyfat." The fats in the cold glass of milk, the little bite of cheese, and that small bowlof ice cream will move from your lips to your hips effortlessly. In fact, it moveswith so little effort that the chemical structure of the fat isn't even changed. Cow'smilk contains a unique kind of fat with double bonds located at the C-15 and C-17position on the fat's carbon chain. Examination of a person's fatty (adipose) tissuesfollowing a biopsy will show the amount of this kind of fat present, which will bein direct proportion to the amount of dairy products the person consumes. (33)All that fat the dairy industry asks us to eat is associated with higher risks of heartdisease, diabetes, hypertension, and breast, prostate, uterine and colon cancer. Yet,

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    as a marketing scheme, the dairy industry has teamed up with the NationalMedical Association to write articles about "the role of dairy in helping reduce therisk of heart disease, hypertension, and other serious health issues." (34)The National Medical Association promotes the collective interests of physiciansand patients of African descent. Please explain to me how this association cameabout when the vast majority of people of African descent (80% to 90%) cannot

    drink milk because of lactose intolerance; causing them diarrhea, stomach crampsand gas. (35)Not only is this dairy fat unattractively worn and a health hazard, but it is also asource of large quantities of environmental chemicals, like dioxins and DDT, thataffect your health and the health of a mother's offspring during pregnancy andnursing. (36) One reason a young girl needs to start thinking about a healthier dietearly is because the accumulation of these chemicals in her own body fat occursover her entire lifetime.The UMP Will Try to Confuse You about Bone Health and Animal ProteinOsteoporosis is caused by several factors; however, the most important one is diet;especially the amount of animal protein and acid in the foods we eat. (37-39 0 Thehigh acid foods are meat, poultry, fish, seafood, and hard cheeses, parmesancheese is the most acidic of all foods commonly consumed." (40)Once consumed, this food-derived acid must be neutralized in the body. Fruits andvegetables can do this neutralizing (these foods are alkaline in nature). However,because the diet of the average Westerner is so deficient in fruits and vegetablesand so high in acid foods, the primary neutralizer of dietary acid becomes theirbones. The bones dissolve to release alkaline materials.Worldwide, the highest rates of hip fractures are among populations that consumethe most animal food (including dairy products) like people from the USA,Canada, Norway, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, etc. (41,42) The lowest rates

    are among people who eat little or no dairy foods (these people are on lowercalcium diets) like people from rural Asia and rural Africa. (41,42)The basic experiments published in the 1980s clearly show protein causes boneloss, and calcium offers little or no protection. (43) Even the foremost scientistshired by the dairy industry know protein is harmful to the bones. (44) In my April2003 Newsletter I explained there was only one properly designed study testingthe effects of fluid milk on the bone health of postmenopausal women, and theresults were: those who received the extra milk for a year lost more bone than

    those who didn't drink the milk. (44) The authors, funded by the National DairyCouncil, explained in their paper, "The protein content of the milk supplementmay have a negative effect on calcium balance, possibly through an increase in

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    kidney losses of calcium or through a direct effect on bone resorption." Trying toexplain why those receiving the milk were in worse calcium balance, they said,"this may have been due to the average 30 percent increase in protein intakeduring milk supplementation."Unfortunately, all this damning information does not sit well with the powerfuldairy industry, so they have started the "3-A-Day of Dairy" program to battle the

    calcium crisis in America by promoting milk, cheese and yogurt for "strongerbones" and they have been busy doing their own research to prove protein is goodfor the bones. (45-48)Regrettably for them, their designing means were just revealed in the May 2003issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. (49) The article in this journalexposed the way they made the results show protein is good for the bones. Todevise research that appears to contradict hundreds of articles published over thepast 35 years, you only have to provide sufficient alkaline material in the diet ofthe people being studied to neutralize the acid from the animal foods. This wasaccomplished by studying populations that have diets high in neutralizing fruitsand vegetables; the other approach employed was to add a strong alkali source tothe experiment, such as an antacid pill (wafer), calcium citrate (like Citracal).Once the acid from the food is neutralized, then any bone building factors thatmight be present in meat and dairy can exert their effects. High protein foods, andespecially dairy foods, raise the levels of a powerful growth-stimulating hormone

    in the body, called insulin-like growth factor-1 or IGF-1. Stimulation of bonegrowth by this hormone is now being offered as the reason dairy products buildstrong bones. It has long been necessary for them to find a more scientificallysupportable explanation, because the bulk of the research shows the calcium indairy foods has little or no benefit for bone health. (50-52)The UMP Will Not Promote the Fact that IGF-1 is a Powerful Cancer PromoterConsumption of animal products increases the levels of insulin-like growth factor-

    1 in your body. However, modern dairy technology has made dairy products aneven more potent source of this growth stimulant. Since 1985, U.S. dairy farmershave been allowed to inject cows with recombinant bovine growth hormone(rbGH), a genetically engineered bovine growth hormone that increases milkproduction. RbGH treatment produces an increase in IGF-1 in cow's milk, by asmuch as 10-fold. (53,54) IGF-1 is not destroyed by pasteurization. (53) Theoverall effect is that milk seems to raise IGF-1 levels in people more than anyother component of our diet. (55)

    The direct evidence of the effects of cow's milk on IGF-1 levels in people hasbeen provided by the dairy industry's own efforts. Two recent studies, one onadolescent girls and the other on post-menopausal women, showed increasing

  • 7/28/2019 Dangers of Milk and Dairy Products - The Facts


    milk consumption actually raises plasma levels of IGF-1 in the person's body byan average of 10%. (56,57)Their take on this is, "this is a beneficial effecT" because IGF-1 stimulates bonegrowth. But, the actual lasting consequences should deliver the final deathblow todairy products: IGF-1 promotes the growth of cancer. This growth promoter hasbeen strongly linked to the development of cancer of the breast, prostate, lung, and

    colon. (58) Excess IGF-1 stimulates cell proliferation and inhibits cell death - twoactivities you definitely don't want when cancer cells are involved. (58)There is more to cancer promotion by dairy foods than IGF-1. Most dairy productsare high in saturated fat - and fat is the number one suspect when it comes to thecause of most common cancers in Western societies (for example, breast, prostate,colon, kidney, pancreas). Recent studies have linked the sugar (lactose) and fat inmilk with ovarian cancer, (59,60) and the calcium in milk lowers concentrationsof a specific form of vitamin D that protects against prostate cancer, raising men'soverall risk. (61,62) (See my February 2003 Newsletter for more information ondiet and prostate cancer.) Hormones (estrogens) are also involved in cancers ofreproductive organs, like breast and uterine cancer. There are several reasons dairyproducts raise a woman's hormone levels causing a variety of hormone-dependentproblems from early onset of menstruation (menarche) to PMS and uterinefibroids - but one is unique to cow's milk. Cows are milked even while they arepregnant. As a result of the pregnancy, cows secrete high levels of estrogen intotheir milk. (63)

    Will the UMP Advertise that Dairy Is Simply Liquid Meat?Red meat has become a "dirty word" when it comes to health. At the opposite endof the spectrum of opinions on food is cow's milk - one of the world'S mosttrusted foods. Do you remember the "Basic Four Food Groups?" Dairy wasusually placed first in this chart which was hung in every schoolroom (and by nocoincidence the dairy industry also provided the chart).

    Dairy products are deficient in iron and beef is deficient in calcium; both containtoo little dietary fiber, essential fat (linoleic acid), and vitamin C and B3 (niacin)to meet human nutritional requirements. (64) Heavy consumption of either ofthese food groups - loaded with fat and cholesterol - will result in the diseasescommon to affluent societies, such as obesity, heart disease, strokes, type-2diabetes and cancer, to name just a few serious problems. (65)If a patient bargained with me, "I'll give up only one of the first two food groups"meat or milk" - hopes of getting well," my recommendation for almost all

    common health problems in Western society would be, "You're likely to get themost benefits if you give up the dairy products."
