In 1971 the American Heart Assoc. took on the National Commission on Egg Nutrition in court over ads placed in the Wall Street Journal stating that there was no scientific evidence that eating eggs, even in small quantities, will increase the risk of a heart attack. Judge Ernest G. Barnes ruled that "There exists a substantial body of competent and reliable scientific evidence that eating eggs increases the risk of heart attacks or heart disease...This evidence is systematic, consistent, strong and congruent."

"Most people have grown up believing that dairy foods are healthy.  This is primarily due to outmoded conventional wisdom but it is also the result of a successful advertising campaign by the dairy industry. In the face of scientific fact and common logic, they have convinced most of us that calves' food is essential for good human nutrition."
Toronto Vegetarian Assoc.

"Human beings have absolutely no nutritional requirement for cow's milk."
- Michael Klaper, M.D.


Cow's milk is for baby cows.  Do you know what it is doing to your human body?


Milk is perfect food for baby cows.  For humans, it's heated to 160 degrees, rendering calcium to an inorganic form.  It isn't natural food for the human body.  It's a source of bad cholesterol (LDL).  It's linked to many physical problems in humans, such as cancer, diabetes and allergies.  It contains bovine viruses.

Studies have found that when cow proteins enter the human body, the white blood cell (antibodies) count goes up.

All mucus membrane problems: colds, runny noses, allergies, ear infections, swollen glands, skin rashes, as well as arteriosclerosis, acne, breast and prostate cancer are linked to cow's milk.

No animal drinks the milk of another, or past weaning, or in a pasturized form. 

Cheese contains the cow protein casein, linked to diabetes as well as many allergies and more recently, breast cancer.

Cheese also contains bacteria and molds.  The fermentation process breaks down proteins and fats producing amines, ammonia, irritation fats and lactic acid, causing stomach irritation, migraine headaches and overworks kidneys and liver.

And don't make the mistake of thinking that a mild case of salmonella poisoning is ok.  Studies show that many bacterial poisonings are related to physical illnesses that may not show up until much later in life.

According to Frank A. Oski, M.D., Director of Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University:

There may be a link between milk and insulin-dependent diabetes. In addition, infants may suffer blood loss in their intestinal tract, depleting their body's iron.
  Milk is deficient in iron.
  Milk, is a common cause of allergies and digestive problems, particularly among people of African and Asian descent, who lack the enzyme required to digest the milk sugar lactose.
  Milk products are deficient in fiber and overloaded with fat and cholesterol.
  Milk is a concentrated source of protein. Ironically, over consumption of high protein foods such as dairy products may contribute to osteoporosis. 

From Problems with Milk


There are many tasty milk, egg and cheese substitutes today made from plant foods that are healthier for you.  Once you get that animal fatty coating off your taste buds, you'll find that you will be able to taste the natural goodness of plant foods.  Your taste buds will change and animal meats will become less appealing to you.  Learning more about the subject of nutrition will help you make healthier food choices.

Under certain conditions, cow's milk proteins pass through the gut into the bloodstream, eliciting the production of antibodies. These antibodies end up attacking not only the milk proteins but also pancreatic beta-cell proteins that happen to be structurally similar to those in cow's milk. Viral infections cause these beta-cell proteins to be exposed to the antibodies. During viral infections over the next several years, intermittent antibody attacks gradually destroy the beta cells. In late childhood or early adulthood, insulin levels are so low that diabetes becomes manifest.  

In 1992, the New England Journal of Medicine reported that, of 142 children recently diagnosed with diabetes, all had high levels of antibodies to a particular cow's milk protein. A 1996 research study published in The Lancet, again suggested that milk may contribute to diabetes in children.
