Milk and dairy products cause heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis — interview with Robert Cohen

Milk is PoisonThe following is part three of an interview with Robert Cohen, author of “Milk, the Deadly Poison,” and www.Notmilk.com

Mike Adams: What is it that drove you to have this kind of interest and energy to pursue the truth about milk and dairy products?

Robert Cohen: Three little girls named Jennifer, Sarah, and Lizzie — my daughters. I wanted them to have healthy bodies. I wanted them not to live four years of high school life with zits all over their body like their dad did. And you know something? They’ve been zit free! No acne, and if you look at my book, Milk A to Z, I take every letter of the alphabet and fill in something about milk. Z is for zits, and we know that these cows are actually being milked before they give birth, and that milk is different milk — it’s milk instructing mammary tissue to grow. Little girls have changed these days, but we find that with the secretion of all of these androgens, the cows are constantly using the androgens to produce other hormones. Teenage acne is improved the second we give up milk. It takes a couple of weeks, and the acne’s gone. And these androgens stimulate the sebaceous glands, which are the glands that cause the acne, cause the zits.

So we find a dairy link to a number of human conditions. And I’m not the first to say this — Dr. Spock said this. Dr. Spock sold 75 million copies of his book on child care. The only book that sold more than Dr. Spock’s book in history is the Bible. Dr. Spock said that no human, no child, no adult needs cow’s milk — it’s a deception on the government’s part to promote. And we’re learning, as I’ve said, more doctors are learning today something they were not taught in medical school. You want to look at the etiology of allergies and diabetes? You look at diabetes, you look at the New England Journal of Medicine, July 31, 1992 — right there, you can look it up! It said that exposure to these bovine proteins, bovine serum lactobumin is a trigger for insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, and a few months later, October of ’92, Scientific America talked about the dairy slogan,”Milk, it does a body good.” It said, “Milk, it does a body good — it sounds a little hollow these days.”

Plant-Based for ALL Patients! Says Kaiser Permanente.

Finally some much needed CLARITY from the “system”

Kaiser Permanente

Kaiser Permanente

In their Spring 2013 Journal, America’s largest managed care company and hospital system has taken a bold stand on the superiority of plant-based nutrition to promote health. This is big news and deserves widespread distribution. Please share this blog with your doctor.

“Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to all their patients…encouraging whole, plant-based foods and discouraging meats, dairy products, and eggs as well as all refined and processed foods.”

Background. Although our medical doctors receive little if any nutritional training in med school, they are the primary gatekeepers when it comes to advising patients about what they should be eating. And since most of the doctors eat the Standard American Diet (the S.A.D.) themselves, naturally that is what they advise their patients to eat. That practice has resulted in the sickest nation on Earth with by far the highest cost of healthcare. But things are finally beginning to change.

The Permanente Journal: A Nutritional Update to Physicians Regarding Plant-Based Diets

Abstract

Vegetables on White Background

Plant Based Diets Recommended by Kaiser Permanente Study

The objective of this article is to present to physicians an update on plant-based diets. Concerns about the rising cost of health care are being voiced nationwide, even as unhealthy lifestyles are contributing to the spread of obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Forthese reasons,physicianslooking for cost-effective interventionstoimprove health outcomes are becoming more involved in helping their patients adopt healthier lifestyles.Healthy eatingmaybebest achievedwithaplant-baseddiet,whichwedefine as a regimen that encourages whole, plant-based foods and discourages meats, dairy
products, and eggs as well as all refined and processed foods.We present a case study as an example of the potential health benefits of such a diet. Research shows that plant based diets are cost-effective, low-risk interventions that may lower body mass index, blood pressure, HbA1C, and cholesterol levels. They may also reduce the number of medications needed to treat chronic diseases and lower ischemic heart disease mortality rates. Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to all their patients,
especially those with high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, or obesity
