A book that has changed our minds on Milk.
It was recommended to me and I found the piece of paper I wrote the name on then went to find it at the library. I got half way through it then went and ordered it.
The first half was pretty much looking at his credentials but the last bit "just blew my mind" so to speak. The super list of References & studies (and Id suggest that they are so numerous that they decided to make them in a smaller font so as not to take up so many pages) is amazing!
I look forward to reading what people have to say about the writing/info from their perspective.
I (in my early 60's) now look at the causes of osteoporosis differently and as I frequently spend quite a lot of time in a remote Nth'n part of the Philippines and hear of and see virtually no sign of osteoporosis, I think the author is dead right.
What else are we lied to about? Big business can't be trusted and most of us know that, but Milk? Whow!
Is it the same for other health related ailments & remedies??? Are the so called experts REALLY telling us the truth?
Are we not only ruining the soils & waters of our magnificent country of ours but us, our kids and grand kids as well?
Am I over reacting? I don't believe so but would certainly like some views from others who have read the book and maybe like me, have followed up some of the research the author mentioned.
I have heard of people who have had great success in reversing conditions such as heart disease using his 'diet'.
I am always very sceptical of what the so called experts claim, and I personally think that many health products are simply enormous $ earners for their makers. Not all but many are. I think many consumers are driven to have the best etc and believe marketing ploys to get them to spend money on things that really don't do what it is claimed they will do.
As with all these studies and claims, I think it is important to read, think, research and apply great doses of common sense. I personally think sugar is the worst thing in most diets these days and whilst I am the first to reach for a sweet fix with my late coffee we try to limit refined sugar.
Whereabouts in the Philippines do you travel to? We were over there a year ago and absolutely love the country and the people. Hope to get back there oneday.
It could be, imagine if you had to deal with all the elephant shit if you were milking a herd of them? Cow milkers have a big enough problem as it is!

But the compost would be absolutely divine! The pumpkins, and tomatoes would be elephant sized.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

I've got 1kg of prime elephant steak going here only $200 a kg - any takers?

and 500 tons of manure to go with it....
There are dissenting opinions out there;
For example, Denise Mingerâ€™s critique of The China Study:
This gained a response from Dr Campbell:
The way that I see it, is that biologically, we are omnivores, adapted to ancient conditions, and that our bodies are not adapted to handle many "modern" foods including: refined carbohydrates (sugar, flour, corn syrup, etc), trans-fat (hydrogenated oil), oxidised fat (processed food), too much omega6 and not enough omega3 (seed oil, meat from grain fed animals), and then there is also the issue of sedentary lifestyles and chronic stress, etc
First of all, make sure you know where the elephant's udder is.
