Re: “Raw Deal

THE TRUTH!

You may be horrified to learn that the USDA allows milk to contain from one to one and a half million white blood cells per milliliter.

LEUKEMIA? LYMPHOMA? THIS MAY BE THE WORST--BRACE YOURSELF!

I hate to tell you this, but the bovine leukemia virus is found in more than three of five dairy cows in the United States!

Sorry, there's more. Remember lactose? This is the principal carbohydrate of milk. It seems that nature provides new-borns with the enzymatic equipment to metabolize lactose, but this ability often extinguishes by age 4 or 5 years.

If you really want to play it safe, you may decide to join the growing number of Americans who are eliminating dairy products from their diets altogether.

Who is right? Why the confusion? Where best to get our answers? Can we trust milk industry spokesmen? Can you trust any industry spokesmen? Are nutritionists up to date or are they simply repeating what their professors learned years ago? What about the new voices urging caution?

WHAT IS MILK?

Milk is a maternal lactating secretion, a short term nutrient for new-borns. Nothing more, nothing less. Why would any adult want to suckle the teat of a cow? Humans are the only species on earth that does this and the only one that uses machines to gather milk. Picture yourself in a field, "Got Milk"?

IS ALL MILK THE SAME?

But is it natural? Is it wise to drink the milk of another species of mammal?
Milk is not just milk. The milk of every species of mammal is unique and specifically tailored to the requirements of that animal.
