Dairy industry shocker

Posted 1 November 2004

The following bulletin from dairy industry expert Robert Cohen convincingly links milk with serious diseases of the gut in humans:

The November issue of the journal Dairy Science (Volume 87 (11):3770-7) contains a study in which slaughtered cows were tested for paratuberculosis, a bacterium that is not killed by pasteurisation. Mycobacterium paratuberculosis is often passed directly from cow to human in milk and dairy products, causing irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn's Disease.

Dr Shawn McKenna and associates randomly sampled lymph nodes and intestines from 984 cows that had ended their lives in slaughterhouses. During the month of June, 2004, an amazing event transpired. Forty-two percent of those cows tested positive, infested with dangerous mycobacterium paratuberculosis.

In February of 1998, the British Medical Journal reported: "Mycobacterium Paratuberculosis crosses the species barrier to infect and cause disease in humans."

The following month, the Journal of Applied and Environmental Microbiology revealed: "Mycobacterium paratuberculosis is capable of surviving commercial pasteurisation..."


Combine today's news with a publication in the September, 1996 issue of the Proceedings for the National Academy of Sciences: "Mycobacterium paratuberculosis RNA was found in 100% of Crohn's disease patients, compared with 0% of controls."

How could anybody who cares about their health ever again buy milk armed with the above information? Please help to spread this news far and wide.
