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 woodworking. 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 fullest potential. ALLERGIES 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 soy. "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 should never, ever be weaned: human beans! Isn't this a little strange? 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 seen it. 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 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 soymilk? That's the answer to whether or not you should eat soy products. Because no matter in what form they are eaten, no matter how tasty they are, if you eat soy products, you're vicariously suckling a soy. Does that make sense to you or not?" "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... Stay tuned for "The Return of the Soy Cheese," where Luke Soywalker does battle with the cows horns of... Darth Cheddar!
