Thanks to my webmaster (Dave Rietz) for
creating a pulsating tribute to Ben Cohen,
founder of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream:
Dairy industry milk mustache ads claim:
MILK- 9 ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS
Ben Cohen just received four essential
ingredients, each a large piece of vein taken
from Ben's leg to replace and bypass badly
damaged atherosclerotic sections of Mr.
Ice Cream's arteries.
Ben's tasty treats may contain nine components
that are essential to the financial survival
of cardiologists and heart surgeons. Fat.
Cholesterol. Xanthene Oxidase. Galactose.
Dioxins. Virus, pus, bacteria & parasites.
Saturated animal fat. Milk has been called
"liquid meat." Twelve pounds of milk are
required to manufacture one pint of Ben's
very rich ice cream. For some, this treat is
an essential ending to a delicious meal. To
others, it's an essential finale to a delicious life.
Cholesterol. That's another essential
ingredient in Ben's gourmet ice cream.
Ben has now been advised to limit his intake
of cholesterol. Perhaps he'll seek a second
opinion from a dairy industry cardiologist.
Xanthene Oxidase. Two Connecticut
cardiologists (Oster & Ross) identified an
essential enzyme in milk that destroyed one third
of the atrial material in the arteries of their patients.
Galactose, a milk sugar. Another essential milk
component that acts to degrade the arteries.
The lucky people who cannot tolerate lactose
avoid ice cream. Those who can digest lactose
break it down into two other sugars, glucose and
Steve Milloy (junkscience.com) tested Ben's
Vanilla ice cream. What did he find? Two
hundred times the safe level of dioxins. Industrial
sludge adds to the potent brew of essential
Virus, pus, bacteria. Do infections do the heart
any good? What is the effect of disease on the
Parasites? Heart worms, filaria. Slaughterhouses
have employees whose job it is to fill bins with
creatures who lodge in internal organs, destroying
from within. Anybody with a dog knows that
heartworm medicine is essential. Humans get
heartworms too. Have you taken your medicine?
The best medicine is prevention. One gram of
prevention is worth a kilo of cure. Prediction:
Ben's future will not include ice cream.
