Is Milk Killing You?

Even as a child, I always wondered why we drank milk. There is not one other animal on the planet that continues to drink milk past infancy. Milk is for babies. It is a product genetically engineered to feed infants life sustaining nutrition, antibodies from the Mother and growth hormones. Adults don't need growth hormones. Once we are fully grown the only thing left for growth hormones to affect is cancer cells.

 Everyone has cancer cells but they start off small, one cell which takes a whole year to replicate into two cells and so on. It would take a lifetime for this small clump of cells to be visible. However, add milk to the equation with its growth hormones and these cells start replicating at warp speed. The milk from cows is the only milk from animals which has a growth hormone so similar to humans that our bodies recognize it and use it.

Thyroid cancer was unheard of years ago. Then farming practices changed and they started to use iodine to wash the cows udders before milking with machines. The iodine mixed in with the milk and is thought to have negative effects on the thyroid gland.

People with coloured skin ( and that includes the vast majority of people on the planet- Asian, African, Indian, Aboriginal) as well as 20 percent of Caucasians are usually found to be lactose intolerant. This means they cannot break down the sugar that is found in milk. This leads to digestive problems and mucus formation. The mucus clogs all the internal organs making them sluggish and weak, setting the host up for a litany of health problem such as chronic constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, chronic sinusitis and allergies.

Milk is pasteurized. Pasteurization is the process of heating a liquid to a high enough temperature to kill certain bacteria and disable certain enzymes. It destroys enzymes, vitamins, denatures fragile milk proteins, kills beneficial bacteria and promotes pathogens. Even calves fed pasteurized milk do poorly and many die before maturity. These days with milking machines and refrigerated trucks it is unnecessary.

Milk is homogenized. Homogenization is a process that breaks down butterfat globules so they do not rise to the top. Homogenized milk is harder to digest, so proteins that would normally be digested in the stomach are not broken down and instead are absorbed into the bloodstream. Often the body reacts to these “foreign proteins” by triggering the immune system, causing inflammation. It can even trigger auto-immune problems. Homogenized milk has also been linked to heart disease probably because of the fat globules that are dispersed by the process.

To learn more about milk and it's harmful effects check out the site They have thousands of articles on the subject. Here is one of their articles as an example, which gives an overview of some of the problems caused by milk and cheese.

BEHOLD! The power of cheese!
The American Dairy Association has a new marketing campaign that may one day replace their successful milk mustache campaign. The Dairy Education Board welcomes the opportunity to reveal the secret powers of concentrated milk.


In 1970, the dairy industry produced 2.2 billion pounds of cheese. The population of the United States was 203 million, which translates to 10.8 pounds of cheese per person. By 1990, America's population had grown to 248 million, but Americans were eating more cheese, 6 billion pounds worth! That's an average of 24 pounds per person. In 1994, according to the USDA, the average American consumed 27.7 pounds of cheese. America's rate of cheese consumption is skyrocketing. As we approach the new millennium, America's per-capita cheese consumption will break the 30-pound per person level.

Constipated by Camembert? Sickened by Swiss? Phlegmed by port wine cheddar?
You do not have to consult Inspector Gadget or Lieutenant Columbo to solve the mystery of cheese. By the time you add up the clues in this column, you'll solve a major crime and be knighted and made an honorary member of Scotland Yard.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows 750 million pus cells in every liter of milk (about two pounds). In Europe, regulators allow 400 million pus cells per liter. France and Italy are known for their magnificent cheeses. Perhaps that's their secret: Less pus!

Since it takes 10 pounds of milk to make one pound of cheese, a pound of cheese can contain up to 7.5 billion pus cells. If your American cheese is sliced so that there are 16 slices to a pound, that single slice of American or Swiss can contain over 468 million pus cells.

Got Provolone? Got pus!


Eighty percent of milk protein consists of casein, a tenacious glue. Casein is the glue that is used to hold a label to a bottle of beer. Try to scrape off one of those labels, then consider the effects of casein in your body. Casein is the glue that holds together wood in furniture. Behold the power of glue and behold the power of horrible bowel movements.

Casein is a foreign protein and your body reacts to its presence by creating an antibody. That antibody-antigen reaction creates histamines. Anti-histamines (like Benadryl) are used to counter the effects of histamines. Mucus and phlegm are produced as a result of cheese consumption.

Mucus congests internal body organs. Mucus creates phlegm. The average American lives his or her life with a gallon of mucus clogging the kidney, spleen, pancreas, tracheal-bronchial tree, lungs, thymus, etc.

Imagine not eating cheese or any other dairy product for just six days. An internal fog will lift from your body as the mucus leaves. Eat just one slice of pizza on day seven, and twelve to fifteen hours later, the mucus will return.

Got Gorgonzola? Got glue!


In the name of science, the dairy industry sponsors studies in which people drink milk. These laboratory subjects then answer surveys about what the insides of their mouths feel like. Biased dairy scientists then conclude that milk and dairy products cause no mucus.


Florence Griffith Joyner (FLO-JO) had undigested cheese in her stomach fifteen hours after eating pizza. Her internal organs were acutely congested with mucus and her neck revealed finger marks from where she tried to claw herself, gasping for breath. Behold the power of a killer.

Got Mozzarella? Got mucus! Got mortuaries?


Every sip of milk has 59 different powerful hormones. Which ones do you want your little girls to take? Estrogen, progesterone or prolactin?

In her lifetime, as a little girl becomes a big girl, then a mature woman, she will produce the total equivalent of one tablespoon of estrogen. Hormones work on a nanomolecular lever, which means that it takes a billionth of a gram to produce a powerful biological effect.

The average American now consumes nearly thirty pounds of cheese each year. That product contains concentrated hormones. One pound of cheese can contain ten times the amount of hormones as one pound of milk. Nursing cows were never supposed to pass on cheese to their calves. They were, however, designed to pass on hormones, lactoferrins, and immunoglobulins in liquid milk to their infants.

Got Romano? Got raging hormones!

See on hormones.

Got American cheese? Got antibiotics. Consumers Union and the Wall Street Journal tested milk samples in the New York metropolitan area and found the presence of 52 different antibiotics. Eat ice cream, yogurt, and cheese toppings, and you're also consuming antibiotics. Cows are fed chicken feces as supplemental protein. The droppings are baked and sanitized but the heat process does not destroy the hormones in chicken feed.
Got Parmesan? Got penicillin!


In February of 1999, the Land of Lakes Company recalled nearly four hundred thousand cases of cheese products from supermarkets in every one of America's 50 states. Cheese makes a remarkable culture medium for bacteria, which stay alive for up to six months. This year's recall was due to listeria. Eat listeria and it can take up to 45 days for you to get sick. Would you make the connection?

Cheeses can also contain mycobacterium paratuberculosis which causes diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome. Forty million Americans are so affected.

Got Colby? Got colds!

Got Danish cheese? Got diarrhea!

Got Brie? Got bad bowels!

BEHOLD! The power of cheese!

Do you know of someone who should get a copy of this newsletter?

Have them send their Email address to and it will be done!

So we have learned that milk is full of pus, iodine, steroids, hormones, growth hormone and antibiotics. You might want to reconsider that milk mustache. There are better sources of calcium and protein than milk. Leave milk to the babies and grow up be healthy!
PS. Cheese is just very concentrated milk for all those vegetarians that use cheese to fulfill their protein requirements. Just a thought.

Thank you, your awesome


  1. I had to stop reading after the specifics of Flo Jo's autopsy. As an african-american who didn't think she had a problem with diary - I now know that I do big whether I feel it or not. 'A change is a comin' in my life today. I'm indebted to you for this information and glad I'm a follower. Seriously. I'll be back to read the rest...I just can't do that now. Again, thank you.

  2. Your so welcome Haupi. I learned about this years ago and like you was horrified when I found out what happened to Flo-Jo. If I remember correctly, they actually accused her husband of strangling her in her sleep. It wasn't until after the autopsy that they figured out she had suffocated on her own mucus. Such a horrible and preventable death. 70-80 percent of African race people are lactose intolerant and some may have a milk allergy which is even more severe. If anything in my whole blog helps even one person then all the work it took to produce it was totally worth it to me. If your looking for a milk substitute I would recommend almond milk
    (unless of course you are allergic to nuts) The jury is still out on soy,apparently in large doses it's not good for you either but thats another post. Stay healthy and thanks for reading, Rhianna

  3. Soy is one of the most genetically modified crops out there. Monsanto would love having everybody believe it is the best stuff on earth. This is an interesting article:

    But let's not forget about goats! Mmm...chevre!

    Darn it all...I loves the cheese! I recall as a teenager in high school in my foods and nutrition class that we had a fellow visiting from Japan. The one food item that was strangest to him was cheese as it isn't something in the Japanese diet at all.

  4. * but * I * like * cheese *....

    though most in my family are lactose intolerant~


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, Rhianna
