Everything that you know about the safety of the beef and dairy industry has been spoon fed to you through a series of deceptive marketing lies. The dangerous, disease causing chemicals found in meat and dairy have put you and your family in a modern day science experiment. To best understand the problem, we need to look at the processes that the industry utilizes to boost production and profits.

Agent Orange Milk

Today's cows can produce double the amount of milk they did just 40 years ago. This spike in production is largely due to genetic engineering. Who is in the driver’s seat once again? Monsanto! Monsanto spent nearly a half billion dollars investing in a shot to inject cows to produce more milk. The recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBST) called Posilac is yet another poison produced by the global giant. (1) Monsanto is the maker of DDT, Agent Orange, Roundup and now your children’s milk.

Chemo for Breakfast

When rBST is injected, it significantly elevates a hormone called IGF-1. Excessive amounts of this hormone will pour into our meats and dairy and have been linked to the production of cancer in hundreds of studies. (2) Breast, prostate, colon and lung cancers are at an all-time high, all affected by rBST.

The link between cancer and estrogen in cow’s milk has become a great concern. “Part of the problem seems to be milk from modern dairy farms, where cows are milked about 300 days a year. For much of that time, the cows are pregnant. The later in pregnancy a cow is, the more hormones appear in her milk.” (3) Cows are given six hormones, including estradiol-17 (a powerful estrogen), progesterone, and testosterone, as well as additional synthetic hormones that mimic testosterone and estrogen. Your child’s milk mustache may need to be treated with chemo-therapy later in life.

Infection? We Have a Drug for That

It has been found that cows given rBST have significantly higher rates of infection. The infections are treated with the antibiotics penicillin, amoxicillin and erythromycin. Bacteria that becomes resistant to these antibiotics end up in the milk, meat, air, soil and water. In recent years, we see the amount of antibiotic resistant infections at an all-time high in the United States. Additionally, we now hear of the damaging effects of humans taking these antibiotics directly. They damage your digestive system, your immune system and make you more prone to significantly worse infections.

Make Sure you Floss

Would you feed your child milk if you knew that glass contained pus? A cow that is injected with rBST develops infections that cause pus to be found in the milk. 548 million pus cells per liter were found in Florida’s milk in 2003. The USDA’s allowable pus per liter is 750 million. Can you taste it now?

Food That Eats You

Medicines, heavy metals and staph bacteria is now infused into your grocery store meats and milk. This is a more common problem than you think, in a study in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that half of grocery store meat tested positive for staph bacteria. (4) Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an example of bacteria that has become resistant to antibiotics. (5) This grocery store “super bug” also lives in hospitals, one of the worst places to get an infection.

My Bones! I Need It!

“But many scientific studies have shown an assortment of detrimental health effects directly linked to milk consumption. And the most surprising link is that not only do we barely absorb the calcium in cow’s milk (especially if pasteurized), but to make matters worse, it actually increases calcium loss from the bones.” (6) Cow’s milk does not produce strong bones, yet another deception.

The solution is simple, walk past the white chemical in your supermarket. If you desire to drink milk, find an all-natural source that does not use rBST or antibiotics and ensure the cows are grass-fed and healthy.
