      Telling Blacks about Milk

      Yesterday's Chicago Sun Times (October 31, 2005) contains an article
      suggesting that milk may not be a healthy food for America's black
      population. See:


      The sad fact is that blacks with African heritage do not tolerate
      milk sugars, milk proteins, and milk hormones as do whites with
      European ancestry, and black Americans are targeted by the
      dairy industry.

      What is it like to be black in America?

      * The white man assumes that there is equality between the

      * The black man knows that there is not.

      * The white woman believes that the black woman has attained
      equal rights.

      * The black woman is sicker, fatter, and poorer than her
      white sister.

      We whites and blacks now share the same opportunities, and
      may live on the same streets and work the same jobs. Our
      brains work the same, and our blood, muscles, and internal
      organs function in like manners. There is one very powerful
      difference between the races.

      Whites with European backgrounds can tolerate milk and dairy
      products. Blacks with African ancestry cannot. With that
      difference considered, it would be hazardous for blacks to
      consume an amount of dairy equal to whites. It might even be
      deadly for blacks to consume greater amounts of milk and
      dairy. That is exactly what they are doing.

      Ninety-five percent of African-Americans cannot tolerate
      lactose. Pizza and ice cream taste delicious on the way into
      their bodies. Lactose is a sugar, and most people need the
      enzyme (lactase) to break down lactose into glucose and
      galactose. Intact, this sugar is broken down in the
      intestines by bacteria and the results are gas, bloating,
      and intestinal distress.

      Casein represents eighty percent of milk protein. This
      tenacious glue causes histamine production, the body's
      natural defense against an invading antigen. One's
      antibodies result in mucus, and plenty of it.

      Inner-city school systems like Boston, New York, Detroit,
      Chicago, and Los Angeles have very large populations of
      African-American students. In New York City, 38 percent of
      homeless children and 25 percent of kids in the Bronx
      schools have asthma. Got milk? Got cheese? These kids do,
      particularly chocolate milk.

      Milk contains powerful hormones. Rates of sexual maturity in
      children are astounding 21st century endocrinologists and
      behavioral psychologists. A recent study revealed that
      eighty percent of nine-year-old African-American girls had
      breast development with early sexual maturity.

      Children are becoming overweight at an earlier age too. By
      eating growth hormones in combination with animal fat, the
      body has a way of listening to the signals of those chemical
      messengers: Grow!

      One out of five children has attention deficit disorder
      (ADD). A recent study in the Journal of Autism linked ADD
      with a milk protein, casomorphin. This opiate is similar to
      morphine, and it can be found in the healthiest milk from
      the healthiest cows.

      Many children of color live below the poverty level. The
      United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) provides free
      food and nutritional programs for these kids. In its lack of
      wisdom, USDA has chosen milk and dairy products to be the
      major components of these kid's diets. These children now
      receive free breakfasts of cereal with milk, free lunches of
      chocolate with macaroni and cheese or pizza. A subsidized
      snack before they go home is more chocolate milk.

      Milk buffers gastric pH so that food in the stomach ferments
      and putrefies. Kids drink hormones and act irritable. In May
      of 1995, the Townsend Medical Letter listed eleven symptoms
      from milk consumption including mood swings, depression, and

      Milk is slavery to impoverished children. Milk takes away
      their ability to learn. Poverty in America translates into a
      billion dollar giveaway program. That gift to poor black
      children and parents is free cheese and milk.

      Add to that the dairy industry's milk mustache campaign.

      As African-American women read pro-milk propaganda in
      women's magazines, reinforced by milk mustache ads, rates of
      breast cancer, osteoporosis, and diabetes soar to become

      South African black women eat just 196 milligrams of calcium
      per day, yet American women, who are eating 986 milligrams
      of calcium daily, experience eleven times the rate of pelvic
      fractures as their African sisters.

      The consumption of cheese has more than tripled in the past
      twenty years from an average of 10 pounds per person each
      year to 31 pounds. Combine that with an enormous campaign
      that targets African-Americans by hiring athletes, models,
      actresses, and celebrities to pose with milk mustaches, and
      we find the reason for increased rates of allergies, breast
      cancer, osteoporosis, asthma, diabetes, and other ailments
      in the African-American community.

      Can things be worse for blacks? Unfortunately, the answer is
      yes. The latest death statistics confirm that black people
      face medical genocide, when it comes to cancer.

      Despite new cancer procedures, which include earlier rates
      of detection and technologically advanced means of treating
      carcinomas, blacks are not keeping up with white survival

      As black people are targeted by dairy industry promotions to
      consume more milk and cheese, and by government regulators
      to eat what is white in the name of good health, they ingest
      increased amounts of powerful hormones.

      There are hundreds of millions of different proteins in
      nature, and only one hormone that is identical between any
      two species. That powerful growth hormone is insulin-like
      growth factor, or IGF-I. IGF-I survives digestion and has
      been identified as a key factor in cancer's growth. IGF-I is
      identical in human and cow.

      If you believe that breast feeding "works" to protect
      lactoferrins and immunoglobulins from digestion (and benefit
      the nursing infant), you must also recognize that milk is a
      hormonal delivery system. By drinking cow's milk, one
      delivers IGF-I in a bioactive form to the body's cells. When
      IGF-I from cow's milk alights upon an existing cancer, it's
      the signal to grow. To proliferate. IGF-I has been called a
      key factor in the growth and proliferation of every human

      A cancer takes 8-10 years to grow from one cell to one-
      million cells. As a result of increased surveillance and
      awareness, cancers are being diagnosed much earlier than
      ever before. As a result of increased technologies, cancer
      death rates have been reversed among whites. During this
      same time frame, blacks have been the target of the dairy
      industry and government. Breast cancer death rates for
      whites have dropped. Breast cancer rates for blacks have
      increased. Prostate cancer death rates for white men have
      decreased. The rate for black men has increased by double
      digits. The same can be said for colon cancer death rates.

      From 1980 until 2000, colon cancer death rates decreased by
      a factor of 27.6 percent for white males and 29.6 percent
      for white females. Black females experienced only a 7.3
      percent decrease, while black males experienced a 6 percent

      From 1980 until 2000, breast cancer death rates decreased by
      a factor of 17.6 percent for white women, while breast
      cancer rates for black women increased by a factor of 9.1

      From 1980 until 2000, prostate cancer death rates decreased
      by a factor of 7.6 percent for white males, while prostate
      cancer rates for black males increased by a factor of 11.6

      Lympoma rates for males and females were about equal.
      Amazingly, despite increased technologies, lymphoma rates
      have soared equally for both races.

      While rates of breast, prostate, and colon cancer were
      decreasing for white men and women, rates of lymphatic
      cancer deaths increased 39 percent for white males and 27.3
      percent for white females. Black males suffered an increase
      of 31.4 percent, while black female deaths increased by a
      factor of 35.5 percent.

      In October of 1992, Scientific American wrote:

      "The National Dairy Board's Slogan, 'Milk. It does a body
      good,' sounds a little hollow these days."

      More than a decade later, those words have never been more
