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

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
