Truth About Milk 牛奶背后的真相 (Part 2)
1) Mother's milk is the best for babies. Parents should switch to
a healthier diet and lifestyle before having a baby, and while
breastfeeding, the mother should take proper care of her diet.
2) Reduce as much as possible processed foods (white rice, white
flour, refined sugars and salt, and if possible, a healthy vegetarian
diet is recommended, ie, real fresh vegetables and brown rice, not
white rice with mock meat and fish.)
3) We do not need as much calcium as is widely recommended (refer to passage on African Bantu women's diet below).
4) Instead of loading up on calcium, reduce protein intake, especially protein from animal foods.
5) We can get more than enough calcium suitable for the human
system from plant sources. Eg. brussels sprouts, carrot, broccoli,
turnip, kale, black sesame seeds, dates, figs, alfafa, cabbage,
lettuce, spinach, parsley, molasses, seaweed, etc.... (note: spinach
has to be taken raw, never cooked, as cooked spinach will aid in the
formation of oxalic acid crystals in the kidneys.)
6) Take raw as much as possible. Have salads in every meal if
possible. Drink fresh raw fruit and vegetable juices daily. A good
start is ABC juice (apple, beet root, carrot).
Babies fed on cow's milk indeed grow. But they grow in size, not
so much in intellect (refer to Chinese excerpt by Dr Jiang
Shuhui below). And they develop allergies, which get better when milk
is removed from the diet.

On alternatives to dairy:
"Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices", Dr. N. W. Walker
pgs 26-28 (Carrot Juice)
... (raw carrot juice) is a valuable aid in the improvement and maintenance of the bone structure of the teeth.
Nursing mothers should drink plenty of raw carrot juice,
properly prepared, to enhance the quality of their milk, as a breast
milk diet may under certain circumstances, not provide sufficient vital
foods. ... One pint of carrot juice, daily, has more constructive body
value than 25 pounds of calcium tablets.
... Intestinal and liver diseases are sometimes due to a
lack of certain of the elements contained in properly prepared raw
carrot jucie. When this is the case, than a noticeable cleaning up of
the liver may take place, and the material which was clogging it may be
found to dissolve. Frequently this is released so abundantly that the
intestinal and urinary channels are inadequate to care for this
overflow, and in a perfectly natural manner it is passed into the lymph
for elimination from the body by means of the pores of the skin. This
material has a distinctly orange or yellow pigment and while it is
being so eliminated from the body will sometimes discolor the skin.
Whenever such a discoloration takes place after drinking carrot or
other juices, it is an indication that the liver is getting a
It is NOT the carrot juice itself nor the carotene that
comes through the skin, as this discoloration will take place even if
the juice is filtered to the point of clearing it of all color pigment.
"Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices", Dr. N. W. Walkerpgs 33-34
The greatest value of raw celery lies in the fact that
it contains an exceptionally high percentage of vital organic sodium.
It is one of the chemical properties of sodium to maintain calcium in
solution.. This is particularly the case in the human system, as we
will presently see..
Raw celery contains more than four times as much vital
organic sodium as it does calcium. This fact makes it one of the most
valuable juices for people who have used concentrated sugars and
starches more or less consistently all their lives.
... calcium is one of the most essential elements in our
diet; but it must be consumed orgnaically, and through vitally ORGANIC
atoms. When any calcium-containing food is cooked or processed, as in
any of the above mentioned carbohydrate foods, the calcium is
automatically converted into INORGANIC atoms. As such, they are not
soluble in water and they cannot furnish the nourishment which the
cells in our body require for regeneration.
"Fresh Vegetable and Fruit Juices", Dr. N. W. Walker
Whenever MILK, other than Mother's Milk, is needed, RAW
GOAT'S MILK is the most logical and beneficial Milk for humans of all
ages to drink.
... Milk should NEVER be heated at temperatures above
118F, because at 130F the Enzymes are destroyed. We should NEVER use
pasteurized milk for the same reason.
..... It cannot be too strongly emphasized that for infants there is no better milk than mother's milk.
... Let me emphasize again it is best not to heat Goat's
milk to more than 118F. When Goat's milk is overheated, boiled, or
pasteurized, it is better poured down the drain than fed to children.
If pasteurized goat's milk is fed to the kids of the goat, they will
likely be dead within six months.
(my personal comment: From what I know, we can't get raw
goat's milk in Singapore, only pasteurized, so this option is out for
On milk, bones, and milk's impact on human health:
"Become Younger", Dr. N. W. Walker
In the first place, milk is intended by Nature to grow the
bone structure of the particular animal from which it comes. Thus the
chemical constituents of mother's milk are intended to nourish the
child for a certain length of time so that its bone structure will
develop eventually to what will be needed for a mature individual whose
weight will be, say, 125 to 175 lbs. Cow's milk, on the other hand,
contains 300% more casein than does mother's milk, and is intended to
grow the calf to a maturity of about three quarters of a ton..
... the drinking of cow's milk generates unhealthy mucus in
the body. This mucus lodges usually in the sinus cavities, in the
breathing channels and in many other vital parts of the system. I have
found that milk is almost without exception, the most mucus forming
food we can put in our body.
From "The China Study" (T. Colin Campbell, PhD and Thomas M. Campbell II)
pgs 204 - 211
... In one study of ten
countries, a higher consumption of calcium was associated with a higher
- not lower - risk of bone fracture (Chart 10.3). Much of the calcium
intake is shown in this chart, especially in high consumption
countries, is due to dairy foods, rather than calcium supplements or
non-dairy food sources of calcium.
... Given these findings, it seems perfectly plausible that animal protein and even calcium - when consumed at excessive levels - are capable of increasing the risk of osteoporosis. Dairy, unfortunately, is the only food that is rich in both of these nutrients.
"Diet For A New America", John Robbins
Nathan Pritikin studied the medical research on osteoporosis, and found no basis at all for the Dairy Council viewpoint:
"African Bantu women take in only 350mg of calcium per
day. They bear nine children during their lifetime and breast feed them
for two years. They never have calcium deficiency, seldom break a bone,
rarely lose a tooth. Their children grow up nice and strong. How can
they do that on 350mg of calcium a day when the (National Dairy
Council) recommendation is 1200mg? It's very simple. They're on a
low-protein diet that doesn't kick the calcium out of the the body...
In our country, those who can afford it are eating 20% of their total
calories in protein, which guarantees negative mineral balance, not
only of calcium, but of magnesium, zinc, and iron. It's all directly
related to the amount of protein you eat."
"Diet For A New America", John Robbins
Quite frankly, the more I've studied the conclusions of the
hundreds of studies in the medical literature, the harder it has gotten
for me to abide the National Dairy Council's promotion of milk "for
strong bones". In spite of its high calcium content, milk, due to its
high protein content, appears actually to contribute to the
accelerating development of osteoporosis. The occurence of this disease
in the United States has reached truly epidemic proportions, and the
promotion of dairy products as an "answer" to the suffering of millions
seems, not only self-serving, but absolutely immoral and downright
