America's drug stores and supermarkets are stocked with many remedies designed to counteract adverse reactions brought about from consuming milk and dairy products. Pills for headaches, sprays for clogged nasal passages, decongestants and antihistamines to alleviate allergic symptoms line the shelves. Stool softeners and laxatives are needed to relieve intestinal gas, bloating, diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome, caused by lactose intolerance which plagues three quarters of the human race. Casein in milk has been described as a primary cause of mucous, congestion and childhood earaches. Without dairy consumption, there might not be a need for those antidotes.
According to author Robert Cohen, "A sip of milk contains hundreds of different substances, each one having the potential to exert a powerful biological effect when taken independently of the others. Proteins and hormones, fat and cholesterol, pesticides with vitamin D added, viruses and bacteria (including bovine leukemia, bovine tuberculosis and cow immunodeficiency virus) all combine to produce a vast array of ailments in our society."
Dairy cows are also injected with genetically engineered versions of their own growth hormones which makes greater milk production possible. The new milk is different from the old milk. Biotechnology has opened up a Pandora's box of demons and dilemmas. "Wholesome" milk contains powerful growth hormones. The new milk from cows treated with the genetically engineered bovine protein contains increased levels of these same potent growth factors. This milk controversy, brought about by genetic engineering, has placed the dairy industry under an investigative microscope.
This exhaustively researched book, MILK - The Deadly Poison, investigates to what end billions of dairy industry dollars have been used to influence the FDA and Congress as well as the scientific and medical establishment, misleading us about the dangers of consuming milk and dairy products. This book will reveal to Americans that milk is indeed a "deadly poison."
