What in the world are humans doing drinking cow's milk? If
a grown cow was offered milk, it would sniff it and say,
"No, thanks, I'll have the grass." Think about it. Could
our creator possibly have set things up in such a way that
the only species on Earth to drink cow's milk would be
human beings? Perhaps you are thinking to yourself, "What's
he talking about, calves drink cow's milk!" Exactly! Cow's
milk was designed and created for one purpose and one
purpose only: to feed the young of the species.
No animals drink or want to drink milk once they are
weaned. Of course, I am not talking about domesticated
animals, who have been perverted from their natural
inclinations. During the initial phase of life it is the
invariable practice of all mammals to take the milk of
their mothers; then they are weaned and spend the remainder
of their lives sustained by other foods. Nature dictates
that we are to be weaned at an early age. Humans, on the
other hand, teach that after a mother has performed her
nursing, the cow should take over. In other words, there is
one mammal on earth that should never, ever be weaned:
humans! Why? Of course, it is difficult to look at the
issue objectively, because of all the contradictory
information that abounds, but isn't your sense of logic and
your common sense a bit offended by the idea that humans
should never be weaned?
Have you ever seen a zebra nursing off a giraffe? No? Have
you ever seen a dog nursing off a horse? No? Well, have you
ever seen a human nursing off a cow? All three examples are
equally ridiculous. But you have seen humans nursing off
cows, because if you have ever seen anyone drinking milk or
eating any other kind of dairy product, you have seen it.
Just because someone milks the cow and gets it to the
consumer in a clean glass doesn't mean that person is not
nursing from a cow. Of course, it doesn't seem strange at
all to see someone drinking a glass of milk, but what would
your reaction be if you were driving down some country lane
and you happened to look over into one of the pastures too
see a well-dressed man or woman down on his or her knees,
suckling from a cow? Would you make your way through the
droppings and go right up to a cow and take the milk
directly from her udder? No? But you will let someone else
get it and bring it to you in a glass, right? Of course,
I'm being facetious, but it seems funny only because
people's logic, instincts, and common sense would stop them
from drinking milk if it were not supplied for them.
The facts are clear about one thing: The chemical
composition of cow's milk is different from that of human's
milk. If your insides could talk after you ingested a dairy
product, they would ask, "What's this person doing hanging
around cows?" The enzymes necessary to break down and
digest milk are renin and lactase. They are all but gone by
the age of three in most humans. There is an element in all
milk known as casein. There is three-hundred times more
casein in cow's milk than in human's milk. That's for the
development of huge bones. Casein coagulates in the stomach
and forms large, tough, dense, difficult-to-digest curds
that are adapted to the four-stomach digestive apparatus of
a cow. Once inside the human system, this thick mass of goo
puts a tremendous burden on the body to somehow get rid of
it. In other words, a huge amount of energy must be spent
in dealing with it. Unfortunately, some of this gooey
substance hardens and adheres to the lining of the
intestines and prevents the absorption of nutrients into
the body. Result: lethargy. Also the by-products of milk
digestion leave a great deal of toxic mucus in the body.
It's very acidic, and some of it is stored in the body
until it can be dealt with at a later time. The next time
you are going to dust your home, smear some paste all over
everything and see how easy it is to dust. Dairy products
do the same to the inside of your body. That translates
into more weight instead of weight loss. Casein, by the
way, is the base of one of the strongest glues used in
According to the late Dr. Norman W. Walker, the one hundred
and nine year old health specialist, a major contributing
factor to thyroid problems is casein. The fact that dairy
products are highly processed and always have traces of
penicillin and antibiotics in them places even more of a
burden on your system. Many people are allergic to
antibiotics, and no one suggests taking drugs when well.
One should endeavor to ingest as few drugs as possible. The
body must expend energy to break them down and remove them.
But the most serious difficulty with dairy consumption is
the formation of mucus in the system. It coats the mucous
membranes and forces everything to transpire in a very
sluggish fashion. Vital energy is always being squandered.
It is a situation that must be rectified and avoided.
Weight loss is made two or three times more difficult when
the system is overladen with mucus.
Have you ever talked to people who every ten words or so
make a kind of guttural sound as they try to release the
mucus from behind their noses? Sounds something like slurf!
The next time you meet a person like that, inquire as to
what extent he or she eats dairy products. The chances of
the answer being seldom or never is small.
One of the most outspoken authorities challenging the
traditional view of dairy products is Dr. William A. Ellis,
a retired osteopathic physician and surgeon. Dr. Ellis is a
highly respected individual in the scientific community and
has researched milk and its related problems for forty-two
years! The link he shows between dairy products and heart
disease, arthritis, allergies, and migraine headaches is
impressive. He also makes two other important points.
First, he says that there is "overwhelming evidence that
milk and milk products are a major factor in obesity."
Second, he states, "Over my forty-two years of practice,
I've performed more than twenty-five thousand blood tests
for my patients. These tests show, conclusively, in my
opinion, that adults who use milk products do not absorb
nutrients as well as adults who don't. Of course, poor
absorption in turn means chronic fatigue."
Now, all these problems exist even if dairy products are
properly combined. And, yes, this includes yogurt. What?
"Why, yogurt is a health food!" Hardly. It is made from
cow's milk, and cow's milk is for baby cows. The friendly
bacteria you are supposedly getting when you eat yogurt are
something that your body already produces in quantities
about which it knows best. All that business about Russians
living to be one-hundred and thirty years old by eating one
of the current commercial yogurts is a joke. They never saw
that products before the film crew showed up with their
cameras. It's plenty of fresh air, hard physical labor,
pure water, and pure foods raised by their own hands that
contribute to their longevity! If you are going to eat
dairy products, please combine them properly for the least
amount of detriment. Milk should be taken absolutely alone.
It's the most mucous-forming food on the planet, and it
doesn't go well with anything. Have it once in awhile on an
empty stomach so your system will at least have a fighting
chance. Same with yogurt.
THE MYTH OF CALCIUM
Some people insist that dairy products are necessary for
calcium. We're led to believe that milk is a major source
of calcium, and if we don't drink milk, our teeth will fall
out and our bones will collapse. First of all, the calcium
in cow's milk is much coarser than in human's milk, and is
tied up with the casein. This prevents the calcium from
being absorbable. Second, most milk-drinkers and
cheese-eaters consume pasteurized, homogenized, or
otherwise processed products. This processing degrades the
calcium, making it very difficult to utilize. Even if raw
products are consumed, there's so much harmful potential in
milk, it's not worth some possible good. Would you eat
tobacco leaves for their high amino acid content? The human
body is remarkably adaptable, but cow's milk simply isn't
designed for humans.
The fact is that all green leafy vegetables contain
calcium. All nuts (raw) contain calcium. And raw sesame
seeds contain more calcium than any other food on Earth.
Also, most fruit contains ample calcium. If you're eating
fruits and vegetables daily and some raw nuts even
occasionally, you can't have a calcium deficiency. The best
sources of calcium are raw sesame seeds, all raw nuts,
kelp, dulse, all leafy greens, and concentrated fruits such
as figs, dates, and prunes. And if you're still worried,
sprinkle some ground raw sesame seeds on your salad or on
your vegetables every so often, and you couldn't have a
calcium deficiency even if you wanted one. We certainly are
not dependent on our bovine friends for calcium. From what
does the cow attain all its calcium? Grain and grass! Cows
sure as life don't drink milk or eat cheese for it.
It is important to understand calcium's role in the human
body. One of its main functions is to neutralize acid in
the system. Many people who think they have a calcium
deficiency are on highly acidic diets, so the calcium in
their bodies is constantly being usurped to neutralize the
acid. They are getting plenty of calcium in their diets,
but it is continually used up. All dairy products except
butter are extremely acid-forming. The irony is that people
are consuming dairy products for calcium, and the existing
calcium in their systems is being used to neutralize the
effects of the dairy products they are eating. The idea
should not be to load up the body with calcium but rather
to alter eating habits so that less acid is formed in the
system. That way the calcium will be utilized to its
It has been my experience over the last fifteen years that
many allergies and breathing problems can be directly tied
to dairy consumption, especially asthma. I have peronally
assisted over two-dozen people in eliminating asthma from
their lives. In all cases dairy products were consumed by
these individuals. The same holds true of children with ear
infections. Ear infections are so common that they are
actually considered to be a normal part of childhood! Any
child who has ever had an ear infection, I would be willing
to wager, was either fed dairy products or formula, or
both! Kids not fed either dairy products or formula rarely
have ear infections. Kids who are fed these products do. I
know many kids who have never had ear infections, because
their parents had the wisdom not to hook their children on
these two nonfoods.
I know you've heard experts say dairy products are an
important part of a healthy diet. And there are experts who
say the opposite. To prevent yourself from throwing your
hands up in disgust or frustration, make your own decision
based on your own resources. Does it make sense for humans
to be consuming cow's milk? That's the answer to whether or
not you should eat dairy products. Because no matter in
what form they are eaten, no matter how tasty they are, if
you eat dairy products, you're vicariously suckling a cow.
Does that make sense to you or not?
SOY WARS PART II: THE MOO-COW STRIKES BACK
Tired of having his "tried and moo" image maligned, the
moo-cow is desperately trying to reclaim his position as
supplier of America's favorite comfort food. Funded by
grants from several extra-large Indian yoga masters, the
moo-cow industry has launched an international ad campaign,
featuring grossly overbuilt football stars and clever
out-of-work Germans, to prove the dangerous absurdity of
"Now what in the world are humans doing drinking soymilk?
If a grown soy was offered milk, it would sniff it and say,
'No, thanks, I'll have the fertilizer.' Think about it.
Could our creator have possibly set things up in such a way
that the only species on Earth to drink soymilk would be
human beans? Perhaps you are thinking to yourself, 'What's
he talking about, macrobiotics drink soymilk!' Exactly!
Soymilk was designed and created for one purpose and one
purpose only: to feed the yang of the species...
Take a look at a soy. Not a very sociable plant, not very
quick-witted, and certainly not bestowed with a great sense
of humor. Soybeans are stupid, indigestable beans, and
consuming their by-products will produce many of the same
qualities in you...
No animals drink or want to drink soymilk once they are
weaned. Of course, I am not talking about domesticated
monks, who have been perverted from their natural
inclinations. Nature dictates that we are to be weaned at
an early age. Soy kings/queens, however, teach that after a
mother has performed her nursing, the soybean should take
over. In other words there is one mammal on Earth that

For example, have you ever seen a zebra nursing off a
giraffe? No? Have you seen a dog nursing off a horse? No?
Have you seen an armadillo nursing off a chihuahua? No? How
about a snake nursing off a rhinocerous? No? Well, have you
seen a human nursing off a soybean? All five examples are
equally ridiculous. But you have seen humans nursing off
soybeans, because if you have ever seen anyone slurping
soymilk or eating any other kind of soy product, you have
Just because Edensoy milks the soy and gets it to the
consumer in a clean carton doesn't mean that person is not
nursing from a soybean. Of course, it doesn't seem strange
at all to see someone slurping a pint of soymilk, but what
would your reaction be if you were driving down some
country lane and you happened to look over into one of the
pastures to see a well-dressed man or woman down on his or
her knees, suckling from a soy? Would you make your way
through the mud and go right up to the soy and take the
milk directly from her bean? No? But you will let some
soymilker get it and bring it to you in a nice, attractive
tetra-pak container, right? Of course, I'm being
fa-soy-tious, but it seems funny only because people's
logic, instincts and common sense would stop them from
drinking soymilk if it were not supplied for them.
Now I know you've heard monks saying that soy products are
an important part of a healthy diet. And there are
overweight gurus who say the opposite. To prevent yourself

"Cows are superior to soybeans. Take a look at a soybean.
They can't walk. They can't speak. They don't play soccer.
Certainly not a very sociable creature... anyway, I love
cow's milk. I like it on my musli in the morning. And I
like ice cream at night. If I were offered a soybean, I'd
say, 'no thanks, I'll take the cow.'"
After the success of this campaign, the Moo-Cow industry
went after the kiddie market, featuring TV spots with 2
kids talking. One child says, "Hey River, let's eat some
tofu. It's got lots of calcium." And River replies: "No,
stupid. Don't you know that calcium comes from cows?"
I'D RATHER BE A COW-BOY THAN A SOY-BOY
This campaign reestablished the supremacy of cow's milk as
the milk of choice for Marlboro smokers, doctor's wives and
other real people. The ads featured such great lines as
"I'd rather die of cholestrol than be called a wimp." Based
on this campaign alone, low-fat milk and cheese consumption
rose dramatically the last few years.
But the soybean was not through...
