Society considers that which is white to
be pure. Such a belief can be deceptive.
By shining white light through a prism,
one is instantly blessed with the hidden
beauty and complex nature of our universe.
A pure white beam of light reveals its
Most people can name the seven visible
colors of the rainbow's spectrum. Violet,
indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange, and
red. Of course, there are two other colors,
often forgotten, but always present,
ultraviolet and infra-red.
Animals and insects feel these colors.
Plants sense them, too. While we lack
the same receptors and are blind to
their existance, our handicap cannot
negate their influence.
The ultras and infras of plants are
magical substances! They include plant
chemicals, or phyto chemicals such as
isoflavones and bioflavinoids. Science
teaches us that plants protect themselves
from attack with their own secretions
and chemical messengers. Vegetables repel
insects who would eat them, and blossoms
attract other insects with a perfume so
that their pollens can be spread and their
species self-propagate. Plants protect
themselves from too much heat, or cold,
or wind, or too much moisture, maintaining
their own good health with their
Plants can cure their own sicknesses and
cancers by secreting and bathing themselves
with these enchanted essences.
When we eat the plants, we are similarly
protected. Modern science has confirmed the
centuries-old traditions and lore from
cultures that refined the sacred techniques
of using foods as medicine.
TODAY'S PERFECT RAINBOW
Eat foods of color. The perfect color can
be found right in the middle of our rainbow,
the color green. There is a pot of gold
and jewels within that rainbow, and these
treasures so contained can be cashed in
to purchase good health.
Eat green for wellness.
In the 1980s, scientists first began to
explore how phytochemicals prevent cancers.
A great amount of emphasis was placed upon
the fruits and vegetables that contain
vibrant colors. The best known of these
wonder drugs was recognized as beta
carotene. That's what gives carrots their
bright orange hue.
In the 1990s, scientists at the University
of Minnesota (Steinmetz, et. al.) categorized
different groups of fruits and vegetables
demonstrating life giving, disease fighting
qualities. In doing so, they defined some of
those magic colors, and the phytochemicals
so contained within those pigments.
SOME OF THE MAGICAL COLORS
The violet, indigo and blues of the plant
kingdom includephenols and dithiolthiolnines
contained in eggplant, cruciferous
vegetables, grapes, plums, and grains.
Eat onions and shallots, leeks, scallions
and garlic for cancer-fighting alliums.
Those green leafy vegetables contain
flavonoids, and inositol is found in
beans. Green fruits and veggies contain
phenols, and plant sterols, protease
inhibitors and saponins.
Yellow limonines contained in citrus
fruit and squash have also been identified
as cancer fighters, as have the orange
carotines in carrots, and my all-time
favorite vitamin pill, the cantaloupe.
Balancing out the rainbow's spectrum
would be the red phenols in peppers,
radishes, and tomatoes.
Tens of thousands of unique substances
have been identified, and there are still
plant hormones and enzymes yet to be
Remarkably, the one plant containing the
greatest amount of these wonderful
phytochemicals is the soybean. Soybeans
contain coumarins, flavonoids, inositol,
isoflavones, lignans, phenols, plant
sterols, protease inhibitors, saponins,
and Omega 3 and Omega 6 oils.
For many years, it has been said that
"an apple a day keeps the doctor away."
Such wisdom! Each day of one's life should
reflect a lifestyle that includes this maxim:
For the best of health eat a rainbow today!
USDA Requires Rat Poison to be Added to Milk
"The two basic items necessary to sustain
life are sunshine and coconut milk."
- Dustin Hoffman
It's The Law:
In 1932, Title 21 Code of Federal Regulations required
that 400 units of rat poison be added to every quart of
milk sold in America.
A brochure produced by the Ministry of Environment in
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, reveals the
"Safe and Sensible Pest Control"
The brochure represents a series of "safe and sensible"
pest control measures, according to the Canadian Health
Minister. Canadian health officials believe that Vitamin
D-3 is the most effective and ecologically sound method
of dealing with rat and mouse infestation.
Information on milk cartons reveal that two ingredients
fill the container: Milk and Vitamin D-3. Vitamin D-3 is
used to kill rats! Why is it added to milk for our children
to drink in the name of good health?
According to the Canadian brochure, products containing
Vitamin D-3 (calciferol) kill by vitamin overdose after 3-4
days. The Vitamin D-3 actually mobilizes excessive amounts
of calcium from an animal's bones.
And you thought that Vitamin D-3 in milk helped to absorb
calcium. Another dairy industry myth!
Don't try this at home. When the animal dies within your walls,
its putrefying body will add the most unpleasant bouquet to your
environment. The offensive smell may last for months.
Many methods of mice and rat control are discussed. I prefer
the most foolproof of methods: Don't let them eat your food.
Store all foods in refrigerators or tamper-proof containers.
With no food supply, mice and rats go elsewhere to dine.
How soon we forget! Children are taught in first grade that
Vitamin D is the "sunshine vitamin." Vitamin D is a steroid
hormone and is synthesized in one's body after skin is exposed
to sunlight. Once the body has made enough, it will produce
no more. Too much Vitamin D can be toxic and
result in bone loss.
In 1963, the journal Pediatrics (Volume 31) revealed:
"Consuming as little as 45 micrograms of Vitamin D-3 in young
children has resulted in signs of overdose." (one gallon of milk
contains 1600 IU, or 40 micrograms).
A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine
(Volume 326, 1992) revealed that of 42 milk samples, only
12% were within the expected range of Vitamin D content.
Testing of 10 samples of infant formula revealed seven with
more that twice the Vitamin D content reported on the label,
one of which had more than four times the label amount.
"Keep your face always toward the
sunshine - and shadows will fall behind you.

Got Lousy Bowel Movements?
According to the National Association For Continence
which studies bathroom behavior, the average American
spends 55 minutes per day sitting on the toilet.
What is he or she doing in there?
Having one or more lousy bowel movements, that's
what. Incontinence is the inability of the
body to control the evacuative functions.
Dogs and cats eat dog and cat food.
They have no problems evacuating
their bowels. I've seen 'em in the act.
I've danced around their firm healthy
deposits on neighborhood sidewalks.
I've seen horses and cattle deposit
their droppings, and my own Boston Terrier
has never had a problem with incontinence.
Of course, she eats no mozzerella. Nor
does she eat Ben & Jerry's ice cream.
Eighty percent of the protein in milk
and dairy products is casein, the same
tenacious glue used to hold together
the wood in furniture.
Eat casein and one will produce histamines,
then quarts and quarts of mucus.
The average American eats 666 pounds per year
of mucus-forming milk and dairy products.
Give up milk and dairy products for just
one week. During that time you will expel
a gallon or more of mucous.
Got normal bowel movements?
After just one week, you will improve.
You will no longer sit on the toilet
for 55 minutes like the average American.
Give up milk and dairy, and you'll
be flush with good health.
There's only one thing keeping you from
being as regular as Kitty and Fido.
Give up the dairy, and you'll recapture
50 of those 55 minutes that are spent

America's dairy industry.
Multiple Sclerosis and Dairy
I really dislike Novartis commercials. They never admit
when one of their experimental trials goes wrong. They
then toot their own horn when one of their drugs helps
people without revealing that half of the experimental
human subjects are given placebos and in good faith,
volunteer to participate in a study which cannot possibly
When somebody dies in a Novartis drug trial, the information
is hushed up.
Not this time.
On Saturday (January 21, 2012), Notmilk learned that a
new experimental Novartis drug used to treat people with
multiple sclerosis has killed 11 people. The drug is
With illnesses such as multiple sclerosis, pharmaceutical
companies invest hundreds of millions of dollars seeking
approval for something which only relieves symptoms.
How many people are aware of the dairy consumption link?
Multiple sclerosis affects approximately
300,000 Americans. Two-thirds of those diagnosed
with MS are women. Most researchers believe that
MS is an autoimmune disease. Auto means "self."
It is interesting to note that Eskimos and Bantus
(50 million individuals living in East Africa) rarely
get MS. Neither do those native North and South
American Indian or Asian populations that consume
no cow's milk or dairy products.
The British medical journal Lancet reported that
dairy-rich diets filled have been closely linked to the
development of MS. (The Lancet 1974;2:1061)
A study published in the journal Neuroepidemiology
revealed an association between eating dairy foods
(cow's milk, butter, and cream) and an increased
prevalence of MS. (Neuroepidemiology 1992;11:30412.)
MS researcher, Luther Lindner, M.D., a pathologist
at Texas A & M University College of Medicine, wrote:
"It might be prudent to limit the intake
of milk and milk products."
The body's reaction to a foreign protein is to destroy
that antigen-like invader with an antibody. For those
individuals possessing a genetic pre-disposition to
such an event, the antibody then turns upon one's own
cells. That is an auto-immune response. In the case of
MS, the body's response is to attack the outer membrane
protecting nerve cells, or the myelin sheath. Symptoms
of MS include tingling or numbness of the limbs, paralysis,
and vision problems. Sometimes MS patients experience
slurred speech accompanied by chronic pain.
It has long been established that early exposure to bovine
proteins is a trigger for insulin dependent diabetes mellitus.
Researchers have made that same milk consumption connection
to MS. The July 30, 1992 issue of the New England Journal
of Medicine first reported the diabetes autoimmune response
"Patients with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus produce
antibodies to cow milk proteins that participate in the
development of islet dysfunction... Taken as a whole, our
findings suggest that an active response in patients with
IDDM (to the bovine protein) is a feature of the auto immune
In October of 1996, The Lancet reported:
"Antibodies to bovine beta-casein are present in over a third
of IDDM patients and relatively non-existent in healthy
Two months later (December 14, 1996), The Lancet revealed:
"Cow's milk proteins are unique in one respect: in industrialized
countries they are the first foreign proteins entering the infant
gut, since most formulations for babies are cow milk-based.
The first pilot stage of our IDD prevention study found that
oral exposure to dairy milk proteins in infancy resulted in
both cellular and immune response...this suggests the possible
importance of the gut immune system to the pathogenesis of IDD."
The April 1, 2001 issue of the Journal of Immunology
contained a study linking MS to milk consumption.
Michael Dosch, M.D., and his team of researchers
determined that multiple sclerosis and type I (juvenile)
diabetes mellitus are far more closely linked than previously
thought. Dosch attributes exposure to cow milk protein as
a risk factor in the development of both diseases for people
who are genetically susceptible. According to Dosch:
"We found that immunologically, type I diabetes and
multiple sclerosis are almost the same - in a test tube
you can barely tell the two diseases apart. We found
that the autoimmunity was not specific to the organ
system affected by the disease. Previously it was thought
that in MS autoimmunity would develop in the central
nervous system, and in diabetes it would only be found
in the pancreas. We found that both tissues are targeted
in each disease."
Women are targeted by dairy industry scare tactics that
misinform about osteoporosis. Two-thirds of MS victims
are women. As milk and cheese consumption increase
along population lines, so too do an epidemic number
of MS cases. The numbers add up. The clues add up.
The science supports epidemiological studies. Got MS?
The milk connection has been established. That connection
was confirmed by researchers in the March, 2011 issue of
the journal Neurology who concluded after reviewing
data from the Harvard Nurse Study (over 80,000
participants) that women who drink whole cow's milk
experience an "increased risk for multiple sclerosis".

I Beg to Differ
Yesterday (after a two-day trip), I needed to buy
blueberries, and papaya. Before returning home, I
stopped at my local supermarket.
The entrance is located near the store's pharmacy.
It was there and then I overheard one of the workers
talking passionately about a prescription that she
was having filled for her husband. I have known this
woman casually for many years, but never knew that
her young husband had experienced a triple bypass
She spoke to the pharmacist about how ill he had
gotten after taking a cholesterol-lowering drug. I
came closer and politely asked, "Mind if I listen?
I might learn something." She nodded her head and
When she had finished explaining that her family's
brilliant cardiologist had prescribed a different
cholesterol-lowering drug, I asked what kind of diet
the doctor had suggested. She answered that diet did
not matter. I then asked, "Would he consider a vegan
diet?" Her appropriate response stopped me cold. Did I
hear right? She said to me matter of factly, "He would
rather be dead."
I then briefly explained the basic theory of Dr.
Caldwell Esselstyn's book, "Prevent and Reverse Heart
After making my brief presentation, she stopped me
cold by saying, "I beg to differ."
I had just one final comment regarding her own area of
"Do you have organic papayas and organic blueberries?"
I then spent a few minutes in the store's one true pharmacy.
More Raw Milk Fun (from the Washington Post)
"Multiple Campylobacter infection cases associated
with consumption of unpasteurized, or raw, milk from
the Family Cow dairy store in Chambersburg, PA."
The entire January 28, 2012 article:
Three months ago (October 28, 2011), Notmilk reported
the growing plague of campylobacter infections experienced
by people who drink raw un-pasteurized cow's milk. Six
people in Maryland and Pennsylvania ignored Notmilk's
Campylobacter is a bacterial cause of diarrhea, nausea
and vomiting, and can progress to more serious illness,
such as a bloodstream infection and other complications.
For example, Campylobacter infection is the most common
cause of a rare disease called Guillain-Barré syndrome,
which may result in permanent paralysis.
The most common cause of this bacterial disease is
exposure to the campylobacter bacterium. The good news
for raw milk drinkers is that campylobacter-caused illness
usually results in explosive diarrhea, projectile vomiting,
and extreme nausea, all of which can last for only a week.
The really good news regarding Guillain-Barre-related
illness is that eighty percent of those affected completely
recover from their muscle paralyses in less than a year.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 2.4
million Americans will become infected from campylobacter
Each time Notmilk reports the consequences of drinking
infected raw milk, we receive a deluge of hate milk from
Ron Paul's raw milk supporters. My advice to them all:
please continue to drink raw milk. There are just too many
Americans, and we need to exercise population control.

January 27, 2012:
"SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Police say seven dairy cows have had to be
euthanized after the truck hauling them to a slaughterhouse
in Pennsylvania slammed into a railroad bridge in Syracuse.
"Authorities tell Syracuse media outlets that the double-decker
truck had picked up 34 cows at a farm in Cayuga County Thursday
and was traveling through Syracuse when it hit the bridge around
5:30 p.m. Police say the span had a clearance of 11 feet, 6
inches while the truck is 13 feet, 6 inches high.
"The driver wasn't injured. Police say he didn't know the route
through the city and was following the directions given to him.
He was ticketed. The uninjured cattle were loaded onto another
cattle truck for the trip to a Philadelphia-area slaughterhouse."

Consider the feelings of the uninjured cows traumatized by the
accidental bloody death of their fellow bovines. Consider the

Groundhog Day 2012
It has been a brutal winter for Punxsutawney Phil.
The weather has been wonderful, but litle snow means
that Phil's been awake, and his handlers delight in
feeding Phil ice cream, a not-so natural rodent food.
My list of favorite movies includes Groundhog Day.
If you have not seen it, take my advice and do so.
I'll readily admit to having seen the film at least
20 times, and will view it again this year if it's
Four hours from now at approximately 7:25 AM, a
groundhog will trek to Gobbler's Notch to make the
official prediction that six more weeks of winter
remain in 2012. Today's celebration will mark the
126th consecutive year that Groundhog Day has been
celebrated in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.
Come sunshine, rain, or snow, the groundhog's keeper
has assured us that their little rodent will see some
sort of shadow due to his enormously fattened bulk,
even though it's cloudy and snowing lightly in
Punxsutawney as this message is being posted at
The fix is in. They've been feeding him ice cream
during the "off season". Phil skipped his usual
hibernation this year due to the mildest winter in
This past year, American consumers have been presented
with the dairy industry argument that consuming dairy
products helps people to lose weight, which makes
absolutely no sense, but makes for great press by
those whose job it is to deceive America into
consuming milk. The latest dairy industry claim is'
that milk is brain food. Tell that to the 23 people
who consumed raw milk last week in Maryland, and now
have learned the hard way never to follow Congressman
Ron Paul's ridiculous advice again.
On average, groundhogs weigh a little over five pounds
when they emerge from hibernation in the spring. After
a summer of eating, September weights can soar to ten
pounds. The largest wild (free and uncaged) groundhog
weighed in at fourteen pounds!
The bigger news has nothing to do with the weather. It's
why Punxsutawney Phil has become the Holstein cow of
groundhogs. He's the pig of litte furry hibernators. What
has Phil been munching on all winter while observing his
dairy-based weight loss program? Ice cream! The root of
our groundhog's obesity ain't roots. It's dairy!
Bill Deeley, the local funeral home director who emcees
Punxsutawney's much-publicized Groundhog Day Festival and
sees to Phil's needs 365 days out of the year, had this to
say about Phil's diet:
"He's naturally a vegetarian. But he loves ice cream and
Phil, the groundcow, weighs in at 15 pounds and measures
22 inches in length.
Could an overweight Phil be due to the powerful growth factors
in milk and dairy products? Groundhogs should not be eating a
diet of bovine growth hormones and high calorie-containing
saturated animal fat. Neither should humans, for that matter.
So...eyewitnesses will see Phil spring from his burrow and
report that he saw his own shadow. Winter continues for
everybody. Easy on the ice cream, or you and Phil might
look lousy in bathing suits next summer.
Hannay: "What do you mean, dreams?"
Pamela: "I've always been told murderers have terrible dreams."
- 39 Steps, 1935 Film Classic Directed by Alfred Hitchcock
Congressman Ron Paul and raw milk promoter Sally Fallon must
have terrible dreams. How can they ignore the evidence of
innocent children who get ill after drinking raw unpasteurized
milk bought for them by trusting parents who listen to the
extremely poor advice from raw milk advocates?
These same people initially denied that raw milk was
responsible for the Camplyobacter bacterial infections
first reported by Notmilk on January 29th. See:
Raw milk supporters claim that cow's milk contains a
yet-to-be identified substance which de-activates the
naturally occurring germs in raw milk. That may be
true. After all, I've never found a case of a
raw-milk-drinking Yeti getting ill. It might even be
true that the growth spurt responsible for the
enormous limbs of Bigfoot result from his raw milk
consumption. Ever see a Bigfoot with an upset tummy?
Despite Ron and Sally's denials, on Groundhog Day,
Maryland Health officials saw Campy shadows in petri
dishes and positively confirmed the presence of
Camplyobacter from the Family Cow farm in Chambersburg,
Maryland. As of 4 AM today (February 3, 2012), the
count of ill people infected by drinking raw milk from
diseased cows has reached 39 people. That's 39 small
steps for stricken men and one giant stride backwards
for raw milk lovers.

- Cujo, 1983 movie based upon a Stephen King novel
This past week, dairyman Ray Parks lived to tell the
story of a cow attack which could have ended his life.
Seeking revenge, the 72-year-old dairy farmer returned
to his house, loaded his double barrel twin gauge
shotgun, and pumped three bullets into her body. His
agricultural unit did not immediately die.
The rabies-infected cow suffered for three days before
a veterinarian was called to humanely end her life. In
the week previous to the incident, Elsie involunteerily
donated her rabies-infected milk to Georgia dairy lovers.
Yesterday (February 2, 2012), farmer Ray learned that
his entire herd will be quarantined until August of 2012.
The good news is that rabies virus is immediately killed
by pasteurization. The bad news is that the senile 77-year-
old nincompoop gynecologist/turned politician from Texas,
Congressman Ron Paul, continues to promote the consumption
of raw milk from diseased animals.
Constitutionalist Paul supports raw milk by incorrectly
citing Article Seven of the Bill of Rights in the American
Constitution which guarantees life, liberty, and the right
to own property. Paul claims that the U.S. Constitution
guarantees life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It does not.
Just for the record: It is the Japanese Constitution
which guarantees its citizens life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness. One might wonder about that
after reading Laura Hellenbrand's UNBROKEN.
In can be argued that no child under the age of five
who drinks raw milk and gets E. coli, salmonella,
camplyobacter, or rabies is pursuing happiness.
Eleven years ago, Notmilk reported cases of cows
infected with rabies:
"On November 12, 1998, the Virology Laboratory of the
Massachusetts Department of Public Health (VLMDPH)
diagnosed rabies in a 6-year-old Holstein dairy cow from
a farm in Worcester County. Further analysis of the cow's
brain tissue with monoclonal antibodies revealed the cow
was infected with a variant of the rabies virus associated
with raccoons in the eastern United States.
"The cow had been milked 12 times during the week before
death. Milk from the cow had been pooled with milk collected
from other cows, and an unpasteurized portion was distributed
for human consumption. Public health investigations identified
66 persons who drank unpasteurized milk collected from this
dairy during October 23-November 8. All 66 received rabies
"On November 12, 1996, the VLMDPH diagnosed rabies in
a 14-year-old Jersey dairy cow from a different farm in
Worcester County. Analysis with monoclonal antibodies
revealed the cow was infected with a variant of the rabies
virus associated with raccoons in the eastern United States.
"An investigation identified 14 persons who drank unpasteurized
milk collected from this cow during this period. All 14 persons
received rabies injections."
I am a Communist Jew Bastard
Dear Notmilk Readers,
Many of you do not like my non-support of
America's favorite racist Congressman, Ron
Paul, and react by calling me names. Well,
getting two out of three right ain't bad!
I am not a Communist. For the record, I am a
Capitalist, and I include Ayn Rand as one of my
favorite authors. I should know better than to
bash Ron Paul for his beliefs regarding raw milk
and his continued misinterpretation of the
Seventh Amendment of the Bill of Rights in the
Constitution of the United States of America.
Bashing RonPa brings out the subliminal hate
in some folk.
Late night phone calls...my phone is off the
hook before I go to bed. Threatening emails?
Each one leaves an electronic signature, and
friends in a federal agency get full headers
of any and all threats and anti-semitic
comments directed my way via email.
I've ridiculed actors and athletes, models
and even barely legal dairy princesses. The
worst reactions always come from anything
negative I write about Ron Paul. For goodness
sake, the man is a medical doctor, a gynecologist,
although he often acts like the bull's-eye on a
proctologist's primary target. He should know
that bacterial counts in milk double every 20
minutes at room temperature. He's sponsoring a
bill in congress to truck raw milk from
the state in which it is produced to other
states. Did the man fall asleep in bacteriology
class? Perhaps a refresher course in histology
would be appropriate.
I hope that I do not alienate my friends in
New England with my final comment for today:
NOTMILK - The Nature of the Cow Is to be Infected
What part of bacterial-infected milk sounds wholesome?
The February 24, 2012 issue of the journal
Veterinary Microbiology suggests that dairy
cows and sheep grown for their meet are carriers
of Staphyloccus Aureus bacteria.
Staphylococus aureus was detected in 38 (6.4%) of 588
milk samples from cows. From body site swabs, S. aureus
was found in 394 (32.6%) of 1208 samples from sheep and
in 67 (16.0%) of 420 samples from cattle.
The proportion of Staphylococus-positive nasal swabs from
ewes and cows were 56.7% and 13.9%, respectively. From
lambs, 58.2% of the nasal swabs were S. aureus-positive.
* * * * *
Note: If 6.4 percent of milk samples were infected,
consider that milk from hundreds if herds are co-mingled
so that all pooled milk sold at retain contains
Staphylococcus aureus. Every glasses of milk contains
live staph aureus and staph toxin.
The most common pathogenic organism found in raw milk is
Staphyloccus aureus. Cows often get ulcers or sores on
their udders. That bovine condition is known as mastitis,
and the average cow in America requires $200 to treat that
mastitis condition. Multiply that by 9.3 million dairy cows,
and America's dairymen have a $2 billion yearly problem.
THE GOOD NEWS
Staphyloccus aureus is destroyed by pasteurization.
THE BAD NEWS
While the organism is easily destroyed by heat, the toxin
it produces is not. Bacteria eat and bacteria digest foods.
The byproducts of their digestion are toxic to humans. In
order to destroy that venomous waste, milk containing the
discharge must be heated at 121 degrees Celsius (250
degrees Fahrenheit) for 30 minutes. Keep in mind that the
boiling point of water is 100 degrees Celsius (212 degrees
Fahrenheit). Milk is pasteurized at 72 degrees Celsius (162
degrees Fahrenheit) for 15 seconds, not 30 minutes.
Traditional pasteurization methods do not destroy existing
toxins produced by Staphyloccus aureus.

Everybody needs a hobby. My critics often suggest
that I am a prime example, and I do have a hobby.
Each day, I spend an hour or more reading scientific
journal abstracts. In that way, I often discover
treasures; pearls of wisdom.
This morning, I found an interesting study published
in the February 7, 2012 issue of the journal Proceedings
of Biological Science.
There is good science, bad science, and goofy science.
This one belongs to the third category.
Bad to the bone: facial structure predicts unethical behaviour.
Haselhuhn MP, Wong EM.
University of Wisconsin
"Researchers spanning many scientific domains, including
primatology, evolutionary biology and psychology, have
sought to establish an evolutionary basis for morality."
"We show that genetically determined physical traits can
serve as reliable predictors of unethical behavior..."
"Specifically, we identify a key physical attribute, the
facial width-to-height ratio, which predicts unethical
behavior in men. Across two studies, we demonstrate that
men with wider faces (relative to facial height) are more
likely to explicitly deceive their counterparts in a
negotiation, and are more willing to cheat in order to
increase their financial gain."
"Importantly, we provide evidence that the link between
facial metrics and unethical behavior is mediated by a
psychological sense of power. Our results demonstrate that
static physical attributes can indeed serve as reliable
cues of immoral action, and provide additional support for
the view that evolutionary forces shape ethical judgement

I have extrapolated data from this study and applied same
to the solitary target most Americans place faith in, and
have identified the face least deserving of our trust:
Speaking of politics...Based upon the above parameters,
the face we should least want to occupy the oval office:
When milk is passed through a fine filter at
pressures equal to 4,000 pounds per square
inch, the fat globules (liposomes) are made
smaller (micronized) by a factor of 10 times
or more. These fat molecules become evenly
dispersed within the liquid milk. One pint
of homogenized milk can contain a trillion
Milk is a hormonal delivery system. With
homogenization, milk becomes a very powerful
and efficient way of bypassing normal digestive
processes and delivering steroid and protein
hormones to the human body.
Homogenization is technology's way of
improving upon nature's mechanism.
Through homogenization, fat molecules in
milk become smaller and become "capsules"
for substances that bypass digestion.
Proteins would normally be digested in the
stomach or gut. By homogenizing milk,
these proteins are not broken down and
are absorbed into the bloodstream, intact.
Two Connecticut heart researchers, Oster and
Ross, demonstrated that cow proteins survive
digestion. Their heart patients developed
antibodies to bovine proteins after consuming
homogenized milk. This proved that milk
proteins are not destroyed by digestion.
Hormones in milk are protected, survive
digestion, and exert powerful effects on the
The scientific community believes that the
survival of protein hormones after ingestion
is not possible because of the strength of
stomach acid and enzymatic activity.
Oster and Ross pointed their fingers of blame
at the homogenization process. They discovered
the presence of an enzyme, bovine xanthine
oxidase, which, in theory, should not have survived
The XO Factor was identified as the element
that destroyed one-third of the cellular material

volumes of homogenized milk and milk

from cow's milk does get into the bloodstream.
Seventy-three out of the 94 people tested
(of all ages) had antibodies to XO."
Proc. Soc. Exp. Bio. Med., 160, 1979
The major fact about milk that we learned
from Oster & Ross is that other proteins
normally destroyed by digestion survive
the homogenization process in great
quantities. Insulin-like growth factor,
IGF-1 also survives in this manner.
IGF-I has been identified as a key factor in
every human cancer. See:

Each year the average American consumes more than 46 pints
of ice cream, ice milk, sherbet, ices and other commercially
produced frozen dairy products according to:
Other fascinating ice cream facts according to
make icecream dot com:
"The top three cities in America that purchase the most ice
cream on a per capita basis are: Portland, Oregon; St. Louis,
Missouri; and Seattle, Washington."
"Children ages two through 12, and adults age 45 plus, eat
the most ice cream per person."
One pint of ice cream weighs 1 pound. Ten pounds of milk are
required to manufacture one pint of ice cream.
One pound of vanilla ice cream (one pint) contains 530
calories, 29 grams of fat, and 117 milligrams of cholesterol
Just to put that into perspective, there are three milligrams of
cholesterol in one medium sized slice of cooked Armour bacon.
Eat one pint of ice cream and consume the same cholesterol
contained in 39 slices of bacon!
The dairy industry claims that milk and dairy products provide
for a healthy heart. Now, that's a laugh!
Three medium sized apples weigh the same as one pint of ice
cream. The apples contain 243 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, and

Nutritionally Significant Equivalency
"The great enemy of the truth is very often not
the lie, deliberate, contrived and dishonest, but
the myth, persistent, persuasive and unrealistic."
- John F. Kennedy
The lead story (Hoard's Has Heard) in the
February 12, 2012 issue of Hoard's Dairyman
(The National Dairy Farm Magazine) reads:
"Calcium-fortified nondairy foods deliver the
same amount of calcium but do not provide the
same amounts of magnesium, protein, phosphorus,
or potassium present in dairy products, concluded
a study published in the October issue of Nutrition
Research. Therefore, the nondairy foods were not
a 'nutritionally significant equivalent' for dairy
Funny creatures, these dairy folk. The above study
was financed by the National Dairy Council and
Dairy Research Institute.
I've never before encountered their unique term,
"nutritionally significant equivalent" but after
obtaining the actual study abstract, I admit to
enjoying a good laugh. These dairy-funded knuckleheads
wrote as their conclusion:
"Calcium replacement foods are not a nutritionally
equivalent substitute for dairy foods and consumption
of a calcium-equivalent amount of some nondairy foods
Perhaps these "ex-spurts" are not aware that in order
to absorb one milligram of calcium, one needs an equal
milligram of magnesium.
From USDA's National Nutrient Database
One cup whole milk contains 7.69 grams of protein.
One cup of UNFORTIFIED (natural) soymilk contains
7.95 grams of protein.
Oops! The UNFORTIFIED soymilk has more protein
than cow's milk!
One cup whole milk contains 24 milligrams of magnesium.
One cup of UNFORTIFIED soymilk contains 61 milligrams of
Double oops!! The UNFORTIFIED soymilk has more
magnesium than cow's milk!
One cup whole milk contains 276 milligrams of calcium.
One cup of UNFORTIFIED soymilk contains 61 milligrams of
OK, dairy wins that one, but using the 1:1 proportion
(calcium/magnesium), one ABSORBS 61 milligrams of
calcium by drinking the soymilk, and only 24 milligrams
of calcium by drinking cow's milk.
Triple oops!!! One gets more bone calcium from soymilk
than cow's milk.
"Calcium replacement foods are not a nutritionally
equivalent substitute for dairy foods and consumption
of a calcium-equivalent amount of some nondairy foods
Unrealistic? What a laugh!
What is truly unrealistic is how a peer-reviewed
scientific journal does not catch such fibs, and
how the public is continuously fed such deceit
and milky-white-lies without catching on to the
Who is this "peer" and what industry do you suppose he
is employed by?
What happens to the excess calcium which is not
absorbed in cow's milk due to the lack of magnesium?
Got kidney stones and atherosclerotic plaque?
My conclusion: The dairy scientists who published
this propaganda wear pants that are on fire.
What hurts most is that every major newspaper in America
will receive a press kit containing this dairy-funded
lie. The story will be beautifully written so that it
becomes easy filler for an ignorant health editor.
Simultaneous to receipt of the packet of lies will be a
check payable to that newspaper which will pay for a future
"Got Milk" ad. In an environment of declining advertising
revenue, it is not good business to reject such stories.
In the New York area, the news will be read by the two
all-news radio stations, 880 WCBS news and 1010 WINS.
The story will appear on the evening news thanks to
excellent production values contained in the B-roll
tape supplied by the milk marketers.

It's usually unrealistic."

Archie Bunker: "Don't bother the U.S.A Government
with the Constitution."
Mike Stivic: "Why? Afraid they're gonna read it?"
These past two weeks have been interesting for me
personally. I have been getting hate-filled emails
and early-morning phone calls from fold I offended,
Six people were reported ill on January 29th after
drinking raw milk and I criticized Congressman Ron
Paul for his passionate support of raw milk consumption
and raw milk producers by misquoting the Constitution.
Paul claims that the American Constitution guarantees
all citizens the right to life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness. It does not. Amendment #7 of
the Bill of Rights guarantees Americans the right to
life, liberty, and the ability to own real estate.
Nine months ago, Congressman Paul introduced a Bill,
HR 1830, intending to authorize the interstate traffic
of unpasteurized milk and dairy products for humans.
His fellow members of congress provided astonishing
support, and a total of four additional members of
the House of Representatives have co-sponsored Paul's
In the spirit of "All in the Family", Senator
Rand Paul introduced the Senate version of that
Bill in December of 2011, S-1955. Senator Paul
has not recived quite the respect and support
given to Congressman Paul. His senate Bill has
gotten only...oops...he's received zero support
from any one of his Senate colleagues.
Five days after Notmilk's first raw milk column,
by February 3rd, the number of confirmed illnesses
had soared to 39 persons, so I reported that news and
again blamed Ron Paul for his support of Raw milk.
The hatred flowed in my direction from Ron Paul supporters.
The following day, I received a personal message by waking up
to an offensive "gift" in my driveway after writing this:
Today, that initial six persons infected with campylobacter
has risen tenfold from six to sixty. Ron Paul supporters
and raw milk lovers hate this evidence, but the good news
is that they now accept the truth of what Notmilk has been
reporting for fifteen years, and no longer make the idiotic
claim that raw milk contains a yet-to-be discovered magic
substance which prevents the growth or bacteria which are
hazardous to little boy and girl milk drinkers who seem to
understand the constitution better than Ron and Rand Paul.
All in the Family; Ron and Rand. For vegans, the apple does
not fall far from the tree. For these two, the nuts do not
fall far from the tree...Wordsworth once wrote that "The
Child is the Father of the Man." With RonPa and RandPa, the
bigot must be GrandPa."

Valentine's Day Un-Love
A song for you to play today, if you should eat
the traditional Valentine's day gift:
Many who consume a plant-based diet are ignorant
of the fact that four pounds of cow's milk are
required to produce just one pound of milk chocolate.
Milk chocolate is actually sweet brown cheese.
Tuesday (February 14th) is the one day in which
many thousands of vegans will ignorantly unite
and momentarily cease to be vegan. Today, visit
your local Trader Joe's or Whole Foods supermarket
for a good variety of vegan (dairy-free) chocolates.
Eighty-three years ago, Chicago community organizer
Al Capone ordered seven rival bootlegging mobsters
to be killed in an Illinois garage. Newspapers called
that murderous incident "The Saint Valentine's Day
Massacre," a phrase that has become a part of
During that same year (1929), eight Good Humor ice
cream trucks were blown up by the Chicago mob because
the dairy industry refused to pay "protection money."
The trucks were insured, and the resulting publicity
allowed the company to dramatically increase sales.
What else happened in 1929? The National Dairy
Corporation merged with a small cheese company called
Kraft-Phenix, and the dairy industry has never looked

Milk chocolate is not good for one's health. After all,
the two primary ingredients are milk and sugar.
Milk chocolate is called a "comfort food" for good
reason. This so-called snack is more than just
psychologically addictive. Regular users of milk
chocolate become addicts and slaves to a naturally
occurring milk opiate that is similar to morphine.
This is a part of Mother Nature's infinitely wondrous
plan, to make nursing more than pleasurable. Casomorphin
is addictive. That's why weaning is so difficult for any
species of mammal. Man's folly is his ability to
concentrate milk products into so-called comfort foods
and further create addicts to that naturally occurring
What follows is the most distressing and morally
offensive story that I have ever been witness to.
M & M's once melted in people's mouths not in
their hands. After reading today's column, those
same M & M's will melt and fuse the most
disturbing image into your soul.
I grew up in New York City in the 1950s,
and like any child loved candy, particularly
In the late 50s, it was safe enough for a
third grade student to walk from P.S. 78
in the Bronx to a Boston Road pizzeria,
where a slice was just 15 cents and soda
cost a dime. I would have plenty left over
from the dollar bill given to me by my
mother to enjoy a pocket filled with
chocolate treats from the corner candy
My favorite candy was contained within a
large glass jar. These miniature models
of little chocolate babies were addictive!
I did not know until recently that a
naturally occurring opiate, a morphine-like
substance in milk, casomorphin, would be the
source of my insatiable love for chocolate.
I just knew what I liked. Casomorphin has
been identified as a factor in attention
deficit disorder and autism:
What made these treats special was how
lifelike they looked. Each piece was a
tiny brown chewy doll with distinct facial
Other kids on my block and in my school
called these chocolate candies "nigger-babies."
Black children had to endure the stereotypes
created by a world in which there were still
civil war survivors. Rosa Parks had not
yet taken her famous bus ride. Martin Luther
King had not yet had his dream, nor Barack
The 1950s was a time in which Little
Black Sambo was a goodnight story many
pre-schoolers were read before bed. I can
still remember the illustrations. There
were no Dr. Seuss or Shel Silverstein books
to enlighten 6-year-olds.
One of the most popular comedy TV shows
was Amos & Andy, and the Jack Benny comedy
show had a character, Rochester, who was
no role model of equality for children of
Malcolm X and Jesse Jackson were still in
school, and Al Sharpton had not yet offended
his first white brother.
Fifty years later, the world has changed
and much of the physical and psychological
slavery imposed upon those with black skin
has disappeared. We still have some work to
do, of course, but things in America have
changed so that a black man like Barack
Obama can ascend to the nation's highest
office and three years later, gain universal
equal opportunity hatred from all.
DO YOU SUPPORT SLAVERY?
There continues to be injustice, and oppressed
black children of the nation of Ivory Coast
and adjacent terror-tories are being sold
into slavery to support one industry.
Hershey, Nestle, and Mars candy bar lovers
have got to come to terms with this one. They
have promising to clean up their act since I
first put the heat on them last century.
Still, the slavery continues.
Most of the world's cocoa beans are grown
on the more than 600,000 cocoa farms located
in the nation of Ivory Coast.
Tens of thousands of children have been
kidnapped from their homes and sold into
slavery. These children plant, pick, bag,
and carry the beans for plantation owners.
Lawrence T. Graham, president of the
Chocolate Manufacturers Association admits:
"The industry alone can't fix this. We're
dealing with a sovereign government."
Chocolate manufactures have known about slavery
for many years and have not done a thing about
it. Perhaps it's now time for consumers to act.
Milk chocolate is the weakness of American
dieters. The first ingredient is sugar.
The second ingredient is milk. The third
ingredient is the cocoa bean, brought
directly to you upon the blood, sweat, and
tears of children living in slavery.
With each bit of chocolate that melts in
your mouth, you also deliver allergenic
proteins and bovine growth hormones to
your cells. With each bite of chocolate,
you endorse the world's greatest injustice.
Sneaker and clothing manufacturers have
suffered the anger of a buying public,
who, aware of inequities, refuse to support
companies responsible for such abuse. Chavez
led a movement that exposed the plight
of migrant workers.
Slavery takes this abuse of humans to a

African American school children are the

to a system that perpetrates slavery.
Milking Cows at Night for Insomniacs
"By nature, men love newfangledness."
- Geoffrey Chaucer
There is a Chinese company (based in Canterbury, England)
that is milking dairy cows after midnight, with the
hope of extracting a melatonin-rich milk which will
put insomniacs to sleep. This is indeed a real-life
Canterbury Tale! The story:
The British company's milk research manager, Simon Causer
(not to be confused with Geoffrey Chaucer) expects to begin
clinical trials soon.
I performed a Google search for men with the same name
and found just two. One is a tree surgeon in London.
His Internet website reveals:
"Simon has the experience and ability to assess risky
situations and manage them with care to ensure maximum
safety for people, trees and buildings."
Well, that is a major re-LEAF!
The other not-so simple Simon works with sheep and fur
and is an expert at getting mites out of woolen blankets.
His advice might be to count lambs jumping over fences
during restless pre-sleep periods, not drink cow hormones.
I've got some news for the Dr. Causer working with
melatonin. Daytime milk also contains melatonin as well
as progesterone, which will put you to sleep faster than
pondering the meaning of some of my sometimes-eloquent
For those of you still able to function intellectually,
you should be aware that melatonin is a steroid hormone
which is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan.
Consumption of excess tryptophan in turkey is what puts
Thanksiving eaters to sleep. There is more tryptophan
in cheese made from cow's milk than in turkey. Supposedly,
the cheeses eaten by Americans come from cows milked
during daytime hours. See:
It is my understanding that cheeses made from dog's milk
or human breast milk do not contain a lot of tryptophan,
so you might consider these two wholesome and delicious
WARNING: If you are pregnant, do not drink hormone-rich
melatonin milk. Why? A publication in the February 9,
2012 issue of the Journal of Women's health discusses
"The Relationship of Nocturnal Melatonin to Estradiol and
Progesterone in Depressed and Healthy Pregnant Women."
Researchers at the University of California's Center for
Chronobiology (the study of internal biological clocks)
and Department of Psychiatry (the study of external
neurological kooks) determined:
"These altered sensitivities to reproductive hormones may
reflect a biologic vulnerability that predisposes some
pregnant women to depression."
Dirty Disgusting Dairy Data
"A satirist is a man whose flesh creeps so at the
ugly and the savage and the incongruous aspects
of society that he has to express them as brutally
and nakedly as possible in order to get relief."
- John Dos Passos
Today's Notmilk column is an ugly story. There is
no beauty in the consequence of drinking body
fluids from diseased cows.
The first paragraph of a Page 81 story in the
February 10, 2012 issue of Hoard's Dairyman,
the National Dairy Farm magazine, contains
this powerfully incriminating sentence:
"At least 68 percent of all U.S. dairy operations
and 95 percent of operations with 500 or more cows
have the disease."
The average dairy in California is home to 670 cows.

Do not be afraid of the name of these bacteria.
They do not cause tuberculosis in humans. They
cause irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis,
and Crohn's Disease.
What percentage of people with Crohn's test positive
for mycobacterium paratuberculosis infection?
According to real science, the disturbing answer is
100 percent! See:
When drinking a glass of milk, what are the odds of
having a glass of milk contain this dangerous bacterium?
The answer is 68 percent if that milk came from only
If that herd is in California, the percentage increases
to 95 percent! The largest dairy county in America is
Tulare, California. The averge herd-size in just onr
California county, Tulare, is almost 1200 Happy Cows.
If you represent the average American milk drinker, then
your milk comes from co-mingled pus with hormones and glue
from many herds, so the odds of your ingesting this dangerous
live bacteria is exactly one hundred percent. No less.
This is no joke, although you might want to gag...

About Face on Facebook Milk Marketing
The number of infected milk drinkers from the February,
2012 raw milk campylobacter poisonings on the Eastern
coast of the United States has now reached 77 people.

same infectious disease as its East coast
Campylobacter infections do not make for Happy
Although Claravale Dairy is working closely with
United States Department of Agriculture agents
and have stopped distributing raw milk, they
have not yet placed such notice on their website
or on their Facebook page which they rely upon
to market raw milk lies.
Shouldn't this information be shared with their
