In my day, I used to hear it said that people can't be
allergic to foods. It was nonsense, of course. Just
orthodox medicine and ignorance.
But there is just as much ignorance and bigotry among
holistic fashion-followers: for example, those who
declare that "raw milk is safe" and that nobody can
possibly react to it or be made ill by it; it's
"Nature's gift" and so on.
As someone who has seen tens of thousands of people made
sick by milk, I know that statements like these are made
by dreamers and fools, not knowledgeable health
practitioners. They have an answer to that: it wasn't
raw milk and if the sufferer had drunk raw milk, they
wouldn't have been made sick. And I have an answer to
that too, which is: B*S*!
Trust me, I tested only with organic, raw,
non-pasteurized milk in my clinic and LOTS of people
found it was causing their arthritis, eczema, migraines
or whatever. Even infertility.
Cow's milk is NOT and never was a gift from Nature to
human offspring. It's for calves, with a totally
different 4-stomach digestive system!
In fact I can quote you something the raw milk lobby
doesn't even know, because they don't want their
cherished opinions threatened by mere facts. Back in the
17th century, a man called Robert Burton (1577-1640)
wrote a book called The
Anatomy Of Melancholy. It's still in print at some
universities. Burton described, quite capably, the bad
effects of milk on health and realized it made many
people sick and depressed.
That's back in the days when there was ONLY raw
un-pasteurized milk. Today the awful effects of milk are
being missed, because everybody drinks it or cooks with
it, all the time!
