Lies, Deception and Milk

We have been deceived into thinking that milk is good for us. Nothing could be further from the truth. On this page we will examine the great milk deception and the subtle power that keeps the lie going forward.

"We are creator beings, but we are constantly overlaid with [false] programs." -  Chris Geo

"Cow's Milk is Probably the Most Mucus-Producing, Cancer Causing Thing on the Planet!" - Doug Hines

Here's What Some Very Respected People Have to Say About Dairy Products...

"So imagine our shock when animal protein, but not vegetable protein, was the culprit in turning on cancer in our studies. The most significant carcinogen, the substance that almost invariably led to cancer at 20 percent of the rats' diet, was casein, or milk protein." - T. Colin Campbell, PhD - 'Whole - Rethinking the Science of Nutrition' pg31

"In your digestive tract, milk's casein protein breaks apart to release mild opiates, called casomorphins. They are not produced by your brain cells. They are actually in the milk protein that nature meant for the rapidly growing calf, and as you digest it, the opiates are released and absorbed into your bloodstream. In turn, these opiates trigger dopamine release. Later on, someone figured out that coagulating milk and expressing out the water transforms it into cheese. And now we're on to something. Cheese has concentrated casein and so delivers a much larger casomorphin dose. It may smell like old socks and have more saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium than a steak, but people flock to the cheese counter to get their hit of opiates and dopamine." - Neal D. Barnard, M.D. (The president of the physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) - 'Power Foods for the Brain' pg182

"In 2001, a comprehensive Harvard review of the research on dairy products and prostate cancer found that those who had over the course of their lives consumed the most dairy products had double the rate of advanced prostate cancer and four times the rate of metastatic prostate cancer... Other studies, including the famous Physicians' Health Study, have also confirmed a link between dairy product consumption and prostate cancer." - John Robbins - 'Healthy at 100' pg130

"The dairy industry continues to whitewash the dangers of cow's milk." "The ubiquitous 'milk mustache' campaign makes misleading claims about milk preventing osteoporosis, lowering blood pressure, and enhancing sports performance... And, unlike prescription drug ads, the mustache ads don't reveal the many unwanted 'side-effects' of milk, among them increased risk of prostate and ovarian cancer, diabetes, obesity, and heart disease." - Neal D. Barnard, M.D. (The president of the physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) - in Good Medicine, Spring 1999, pg8

"Whole milk is second only to beef as the largest source of saturated fat in the American diet. "Low-fat" products sound fine, but they aren't. "Low-fat" milk is sometimes called "2 percent fat" milk, which sounds pretty good - but it's 2 percent of the total weight, and most of the weight in milk is water." - Dean Ornish, M.D. - 'Eat More, WEIGH LESS' pg44

"Milk allergy is definitely one of the top unsuspected causes of gastrointestinal symptoms. In allergic individuals, it is a chief cause of constant nasal congestion and recurrent ear and sinus infections." - Sherry A. Rogers, M.D. - 'No More Heartburn' pg40

"The National Research Council, a nonprofit organization that provides scientific advice to the federal government, has reported that the cow's milk humans drink also contains all of the pesticides and hormones that cows ingest with the alfalfa they eat." - Jay Gordon, M.D. - Good Food Today > Dangerous Foods

"It is truly incredible that the very advice given by the dairy industry to control osteoporosis (drink more milk) has actually been shown by studies to aid in the promotion of the disease." - J. Morris Hicks with J. Stanfield Hicks - 'Healthy Eating, Healthy World' pg40

"Millions of women have been falsely led to believe that there is a correlation between osteoporosis and the inadequate intake of dairy foods... Women are placing themselves at risk for heart disease and breast cancer by following the recommendations of the dairy industry." - Joel Fuhrman, M.D. - 'Eat for Health: Book One' pg175

"The answer to the dairy question is that if one does not have milk intolerance, does not easily produce mucus, does not mind being exposed to increased concentrations of toxins, bacteria, and radioactive substances, does not have a milk allergy, does not care about taking on victim consciousness in every sip or clogging developing arteries and subtle energetic channels, does not mind increased weight gain, making your body more acid, or contributing to the destruction of the ecology, then dairy is acceptable, in moderation." (LOL) - Gabriel Cousens, M.D. 'Conscious EATING' pg481



Highlights from the well-written, fact-filled book 'WHITEWASH: The Disturbing Truth About Cow's Milk and Your Health' by Joseph Keon

• Most Americans today largely base their health choices on nutritional myths, the food industry's advertising propaganda, and the compromised nutritional guidelines of bureaucratic government agencies enmeshed with and corrupted by special-interest lobbies.

• For over eighty years the milk industry, through relentless advertising and the cooperation of our public school systems and the medical professions, has hammered a myth into the collective American psyche: that cow's milk is a healthy, calcium-rich food essential to building and maintaining strong bones and teeth. Surprisingly, our obsessive consumption of calcium derived from dairy products seems to be a detriment to our bones and our general health.

• For years, numerous studies have shown a link between dairy consumption and a variety of common ailments including allergies, acne, constipation, colitis, eczema, colic, and ear infections, to name just a few. More recently, leading researchers have uncovered an aberrant protein in milk whose presence may explain why it is so strongly correlated to risk for heart disease, Type I diabetes, and symptoms of autism. A host of insidious diseases, including bovine tuberculosis, Johne's disease (implicated as a cause of Crohn's disease in humans), leukemia and an AIDS-like condition, now infect many dairy herds. An extensive list of contaminants routinely found in dairy foods includes poisons like dioxin, pesticides, flame-retardants, dry-cleaning solvent, and even rocket fuel and radioactive substances. And yet, official US recommendations for calcium intake, with a focus on dairy products, have increased, as has the incidence of bone fracture and many other illnesses and ailments, some associated with cow's milk. -pg5



- Understanding the System - an excerpt from 'WHOLE - Rethinking the Science of Nutrition,' by T. Colin Cambell, PhD (quoted with permission from the author and publisher)

"There's another kind of power that's a lot less noticeable, which I call subtle power: power that operates so softly and effectively that its force and source are practically invisible.

By way of example, let's look at why millions of American school children drink milk, rather than water, with their school lunches, something that nets the dairy industry two huge benefits: huge financial return and early education of young people about the alleged health value of consuming milk. Obviously, the diary industry does not post armed sentries in each school to force the administration to purchase the milk, the food service workers to serve it, and the students to drink it. They don't have to; the subtle influence they exert brings about even greater compliance than a heavy-handed use of power.

First, the dairy industry has spent a lot of money over the past sixty years lobbying the government to promote dairy as one of the cornerstones of good nutrition. When the current school administrators were children, they were indoctrinated in school that dairy was one of the "four basic food groups." The money the dairy industry spends to buy political influence extends to financial support for governmental agricultural policies that drastically subsidize milk production. For schools to offer the school lunch program with its subsidized foods, they must offer milk as an option. Federal authorities don't require children to actually drink the milk, but they don't need to. Local school authorities do the job. They've been well coached to believe that milk is needed for strong bones and teeth. The dairy lobby has also succeeded in compelling the federal government to buy billions of gallons of milk for use in other federal programs, including prisons, VA hospitals, and the military. Talk about your captive audiences!

In addition to the subtle muscle applied to our political apparatus, the dairy industry spends millions of dollars each year advertising the so-called health benefits of milk to consumers. The drumbeat has been going on for so long that we scarcely are aware that it's paid, commercially-motivated advertising, not a public service announcement. Most of us just accept that milk is good for us. And the highly successful "Got Milk?" campaign used popular role models to convince our young people that milk makes you thin, rich, healthy, and sexy.

Dairy interests contribute generous sums of money to many health-related nonprofits as well, thereby influencing their highly effective public pronouncements about the benefits of dairy. These nonprofits have to scramble for funding, so there's pressure not to upset large repeat donors. They also pay for academic activity that passes for "research," producing studies that start by assuming milk's benefits and then find increasingly creative and dishonest ways to "prove" those benefits. The mainstream media, to the extent that they are funded by "Got Milk?" and other dairy industry ads, conveniently ignores, underreports, and casts doubt upon the myriad studies that show that milk and other dairy products emphatically dont "do a body good." As newspapers and TV news stuggle to stay afloat in the age of digital media, they also are susceptible to the dairy industry's subtle pressure to favor its side of the story.

So those school administrators have every reason to buy lots of milk. It's inexpensive (thanks to those governmental subsidies) and it's easy to procure with minimal paperwork (because the federal government has made milk the default beverage). Thanks to health education and advertising, students expect it, parents demand it, and it sells; milk brings in profits that pay salaries, whereas water from the water fountain is free. Just in case students haven't been brainwashed into viewing milk as a health food by thousands of images of celebrities with milk mustaches, the dairy industry "fortifies" school milk with sweeteners and appetizing chocolate and strawberry flavors to encourage children to drink up.

Similar subtle power operates everywhere: when people buy low-fat milk (because less fat is always healthier), reject the breakfast bagel in favor of two eggs and four slices of bacon (because carbs are bad for you), and choose their breakfast cereal based on its fortification with eleven vitamins and minerals (because it's the best way to get the nutrients you need). These choices feel self-generated, but in fact are heavily influenced by millions of dollars of spending by the airy, egg, pig, and processed foods industries, respectively.

This confluence of power, by the way, is also responsible for the phenomenon of vegetarians constantly having to answer the question, "Where do you get your protein?" - as if protein were something that exists in animal products alone. It's also what gets us to agree to invasive medical procedures that earn the medical industry more money rather than improve our diets. Whenever you see large masses of people making what looks like "free choices" against their best interests, you can bet that subtle power is at work in the background.

As you can see, money itself is a lever of subtle power. In a healthcare system like ours, where profit is the ultimate goal, money is the most powerful force available, allowing those who have it to influence, almost invisibly, government policy, the media, popular culture, and the conversations that take place in the privacy of our own homes and minds." - Pg192
