Pus in our Milk ?/!
What’s In Milk?
Do you know what’s in your milk? Check it out if you dare.
Pus a plus?
Researchers working for the National Mastitis Council define normal and abnormal milk based on the number of pus cells. (1)
Less than 100 million cells per liter is normal (More than 750 million cells per liter and the milk can’t be exported, (nobody would want it anyway)
(1) Jim Dickrell March, 2001 issue of Dairy Today
From research conducted by the USDA, the average content of pus in milk is 316 million pus cells instead of the so called “Normal level“ of 100 million cells per liter. A million here, a million there, too much pus for my taste.
Children and Milk
In the last edition of Dr. Benjamin Spock’s Baby and Child Care, the world’s bestseller translated in more than 40 languages, which sold more than 50 million copies, making it second in sales only to the Bible.
Dr. Spock, who died at the age of 94, advised: NO cow’s milk or any other dairy products for neither children nor adults.
Mother’s milk, is nature’s perfect food for babies under one year, and once a child is over the age of two years, Dr. Spock advised a vegetarian diet, eliminating meat and poultry and cutting down on fish.
Dr. Spock turned vegetarian in his old age, he knew the harmful effects of a diet full of animal procucts. In fact, he attributes his health and old age to the merit of a plant based diet.
Children can get plenty of protein and iron from vegetables, beans, and other plant foods, in order to avoid the fat and cholesterol that are in animal products.
“Most formula-fed infants developed symptoms of allergic rejection to cow milk proteins before one month of age. About 50-70% experienced rashes or other skin symptoms.”
Milk is also responsible in infants for:
50-60 percent of gastrointestinal problems.
20-30 percent of respiratory problems.

The Leukemia Virus In Milk
The virus is supposed to be killed in pasteurization – if the pasteurization was done correctly.”(1)
If not, leukemia is perfectly transmissible to humans. (2)
Unfortunately the pasteurization is not always done properly as we’ve seen in several outbreaks of Salmonella (3)

What Nobody Will Ever Tell You:
That “89% of America’s dairy herds have the leukemia virus.”
Hoards Dairyman (Volume 147, number 4)
One recent study found the leukemia virus in the breast tissues of 10 out of 23 human breast cancer patients (1) (2)
There is also concern that pasteurization may break the viruses into fragments that may become even more dangerous (3)

On a study of 257 humans, three-fourths (74%) of people were found to have been infected with bovine leukemia viruses. (1)
This conclusion was based on the discovery of antibodies against this infectious agent in the patients’ blood.

BIV – Bovine AIDS
In the United States, 40% of beef herds and 64% of dairy herds are infected with BIV (Bovine AIDS)
Bovine leukemia and Bovine AIDS can infect other animals like sheep, goats, pets and chimpanzees.

OFFICIALLY, SO FAR, ONE PERSON WAS FOUND TO BE INFECTED WITH BOVINE AIDS
Jacobs RM.. Can J Vet Res. 1992 Oct;56(4):353-9
It is a bacteria responsible for listeriosis and a rare but lethal food-borne infection that has a devastating mortality rate of 25%. (1)
Foods that have sometimes caused outbreaks of Listeria: Hot dogs, deli meats, raw milk, cheeses (particularly soft-ripened cheeses (2)

As usual, authorities try to put the blame on the public like they permanently do with cancer, coronary heart disease, diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and others diseases of affluence.
