It’s a Dairy Disaster!

Standard

Now that I’m in Dr. T. Colin Campbell‘s Plant-based nutrition program through eCornell University, I’m faced yet again with the disasters of dairy consumption. (If you look back at my older posts from last year, you’ll see that I have written quite a bit about dairy and it’s horrendous effects on human health!)

I am in the section on “Diseases of Affluence” – namely on “Diet and Cancer“. Yesterday, I went through the portion on “Initiation versus Promotion of Cancer”. Let me tell you, it’s powerful stuff!

Dr. Campbell says, 

“…Casein is the most significant chemical carcinogen ever discovered.” “In the minds of most people, that would be absolutely heretical, but we did it very carefully and from multiple different perspectives, and published the results in the very best cancer research journals.” ~Dr. T. Colin Campbell

“Is casein in milk?” One of my friends asked me on Facebook. Casein is the main protein in milk and cheese. If the milk is low fat or skim the casein levels are even higher than in whole milk. Cheese has been highly processed, hence has a high level of casein! 

If the quote above doesn’t raise any red flags, I don’t know what will. When I was out walking my dog early this morning I thought, “One day people are going to look back, shaking their heads in disbelief that we ever consumed this product.” The effects of it are disastrous!

Let’s face it, if we’re not getting it then Mike Anderson makes a valid point with the following statement!
