"Cow's milk is meant for calves, and babies are meant to
drink mother's milk until weaned from it."
Nature has designed both types of milk and digestive
It is a scientifically documented fact that calves fed on pasteurized
milk from their own mother cow usually die within six weeks, so it stands to reason that
pasteurized cow's milk is not a wholesome, life-sustaining food for calves, much less for
humans. Yet not only do adult humans feed this denatured animal secretion to their own
infants, they also consume it themselves.
Cow's milk has four times the protein and only half the
carbohydrate content of human milk. Pasteurization destroys the natural enzyme in cow's
milk required to digest its heavy protein content.
This excess milk protein therefore putrefies in the human
digestive tract, clogging the intestines with sticky sludge, some of which seeps back into
As this putrid sludge accumulates from daily consumption of
dairy products, the body forces some of it out through the skin (acne, blemishes) and
lungs (catarrh), while the rest of it festers inside, forms mucus that breeds infections,
causes allergic reactions, and stiffens joints with calcium deposits.
Many cases of chronic asthma, allergies, ear infections,
and acne have been totally cured simply by eliminating all dairy products from the diet.
Cow's milk products are particularly harmful to women.
is supposed to flow out of, not into, women's bodies.
The debilitating effects of pasteurized cow's milk on women
is further aggravated by the synthetic hormones cow's are injected with to increase milk
production. These chemicals play havoc with the delicately balanced female endocrine
system. In Food and Healing, the food therapist Anne Marie Colbin describes the dairy
disaster for women as follows:
The consumption of dairy products, including milk, cheese,
yogurt, and ice cream, appears to be strongly linked to various disorders of the female
reproductive system, including ovarian tumors and cysts, vaginal discharges, and
infections. I see this link confirmed time and again by the countless women I know who
report these problems diminishing or disappearing altogether after they've stopped
consuming dairy food.
I hear of fibroid tumors being passed or dissolved,
cervical cancer arrested, menstrual irregularities straightened out...Even infertility
appears to have been reversed with this approach in several
Many women, as well as men, consume dairy products because
their doctors tell them it's a good source of calcium. This is fallacious advice.
True, cow's milk contains 118 mg of calcium in every 100
grams, compared to 33 mg/100 grams in human milk. But cow's milk also contains 97 mg
phosphorus/100 grams, compared to only 18 mg in human milk. Phosphorus combines with
calcium in the digestive tract and actually blocks its assimilation.
Dr. Frank Oski,
chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at the State University of New York's Medical
Centre states: 'Only foods with a calcium-to-phosphorus-ratio of two-to-one or better
should be used as a primary source of calcium.' The ratio in human milk is 2.35 to one, in
cow's milk only 1.27 to one. Cow's milk also contains 50 mg sodium/100 grams, compared
with only 16 mg in human milk, so dairy products are probably one of the most common
sources of excess sodium in the modern Western diet.
Besides, cow's milk is not nearly as good a source of
calcium as other far more digestible and wholesome foods. Compare the 118 mg calcium/100
grams cow's milk with 100 grams of the following foods: almonds (254 mg), broccoli (130
mg), kale (187 mg), sesame seeds (1,160 mg), kelp (1,093 mg), and sardines (400 mg).
As for osteoporosis, it is caused not so much by calcium
deficiency in the diet as it is by dietary factors which leach calcium form bones and
teeth, especially sugar.
Sugar, meat, refined starch, and alcohol all cause a
constant state of acidosis in the bloodstream, and acid blood is known to dissolve calcium
form bones. The best way to correct osteoporosis is to consume the non-dairy calcium-rich
foods mentioned above, while simultaneously cutting down or eliminating acidifying calcium
robbers from the diet. A daily supplement of 3 mg of the mineral boron also seems to help
bones assimilate and retain calcium.
From the traditional Chinese medical point of view, milk is
a form of 'sexual essence. For the human species to drink the sexual essence of another
species can only lead to trouble, especially for females, because the hormones it contains
will upset the sensitive balance of the human endocrine system.
If you insists on consuming dairy product, your best bet is
goat's milk, which approximates the nutritional composition and balance of human milk.
The only safe products made from cow's milk are fresh
butter, which is a digestible fat, and fresh live-culture yogurt, which is predigested for
you by lactobacteria, but even these should be consumed in moderation and preferably
prepared from raw un-pasteurized milk."
