Cow’s Milk is a White Poison — It’ll KILL You and Your Family

Milk Carton with a Poison Sign on Cover“Man is the only creature that consumes without producing. He does not give milk, he does not lay eggs, he is too weak to pull the plough, and he cannot run fast enough to catch rabbits. Yet he is lord of all the animals.”
– George Orwell

Maneka Gandhi, the daughter-in-law of the late Indian Prime minister, Mrs. Indira Gandhi, and India’s famous animal rights activist, stirred up a hornet’s nest by speaking out against the consumption of cow’s milk. Her beliefs deeply irritated the sentiments of several hardcore veggies in India.

The real truth about milk:

Human bodies are not designed to drink the milk from other animal species. Dr. Benjamin Spock, America’s leading authority on childcare, was one of the first to warn the world against the dangers of consuming cow’s milk.

Consider these cold facts:

  • Dairy products contain no fiber or complex carbohydrates
  • Milk is saturated with fat and cholesterol
  • Milk is contaminated with cow’s blood, pus, pesticides, and hormones
  • Dairy is linked with allergies, constipation, obesity, heart disease and cancer
  • Cow’s milk can cause anemia in children
  • Dairy can result in insulin-dependent diabetes in the later years of life
  • Diary products actually cause osteoporosis. Chinese women who consume calcium from plant sources have lesser incidents of bone fractures in old age
  • Milk has no iron; however, it also blocks its absorption
  • Milk has less protein than most vegetables
  • Milk does not cure peptic ulcer disease. It only offers temporary relief of pain. In the long run milk causes acidity and further destroys the stomach lining
  • Milk is carcinogenic. It contains a factor called as IGF-1. All cancer studies show that when IGF-1 rises in the body, one gets cancer.

The cows pay a heavy price:

  • Cows live for about 25 years and produce milk for about nine years. The stress of the factory farm leads to disease, lameness and reproductive problems and most cows die or are sent to the slaughterhouse in four years.
  • In the farm, the cows are hooked by their udders to electronic machines and cows are subject to constant electric shocks. This leads to mastitis.
  • They spend their entire lives standing on concrete floors and their living conditions are abysmal.
  • Cows are genetically manipulated, given antibiotics and hormones, so that their milk yield increases.
  • To see that cows produce milk, they are impregnated. Female calves are either slaughtered or added to the dairy herd. The male calves are killed for veal, which is considered to be a meat delicacy.

We need not be slavishly dependent on milk:

There are so many vegan alternatives to dairy products and they are available in all health food stores and supermarkets. There are milk substitutes like Soy, almond and rice milk that are equally tasty and nutritious. There are frozen desserts like Soy Delicious, Tofutti, Rice Dream and fruit sorbets.

    Baby cows drink cow’s milk from momma
    grown up cows don’t drink milk. they eat grasses and herbs.
    cow’s milk has inorganic calcium- not good for us
    herbs have organic calcium, and there’s plenty of green herbs loaded with this wonderful calcium.
    don’t believe all the hype you see on the billboards strewn all over our country about how milk has something for everybody. Well, they do have something- something very bad for we grown ups.

    I don’t agree with this. Mostly.

    Raw milk has many beneficial properties and benefits! When purchased from a local dairy farmer who’s cows are grass fed- on pasture, thier lives are not at all what you describe here! These dairy farmers love and humanely for their animals.

    The pasteurization and homogenization of milk is what makes it so dangerous, as well as skim milk. Skim milk is actually fed to hogs in factory farming to fatten them up!

    Please, do some research on raw milk and the myriad of health benefits of consuming raw milk and raw milk that has been traditionally cultured.

      You are ignorant. I’m not being mean, just factual. Read up and maybe visit a dairy farm…where are the babies? They are not with their mama’s…ALL dairy farms…every single one, separate the mothers from their babies within a few days of birth. Males are either slaughtered, thrown behind the barn to slowly starve to death or freeze and the female’s are usually crated until they are old enough to go through the cruel cycle of being impregnated and producing milk.
      In order for animals to produce milk they must be impregnated. When farmers give hormones to cows it’s to make the milk production greater and last longer between pregnancies.
      People like you think that somehow magically cows can just produce milk. It’s not because you are stupid tho, it’s because this cruel fact is hidden from the public.
      I can’t believe how many intelligent people I know that don’t know this fact about dairy. I am having to constantly tell people this and say “google” it because they just don’t believe it!
