Every day, thousands of people read this newsletter.
Every day, thousands of people send and re-send evidence containing the
negative aspects of milk to friends and family members.
Every day, I am heard on radio shows, and occasionally
get an article published in a newspaper or magazine. I frequently
lecture and often appear on television shows.
The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)
and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and the
Dairy Education Board (DEB) together act as the antidotes to $500
million dollars worth of dairy brainwashing efforts by empowering
Americans to explore a diet that does not include cow's milk products.
Every little bit helps to send a message to all people:
COW'S MILK DOES NOT DO THE BODY ANY GOOD.
Yesterday, the September issue of THE MILKWEED, a pro-dairy
newsletter/journal, arrived in my mailbox.
The headline of Issue No. 254:
"FLUID SALES NOSEDIVE DESPITE BIGGEST PROMOTION"
(THE MILKWEED: P.O. Box 10, Brooklyn, Wisconsin 53521
$35 per year [12 issues])
That's right! The latest data from the USDA suggests
that April-June 2000 milk sales declined 2.3%. Since the population of
the United States continues to grow (at a rate of 0.8% per year), fluid
milk sales must also increase to maintain the same rate of growth.
Data reveal that actual fluid milk consumption rates
declined by 3.4% from January to June 2000. The actual April data were
so horrible (suggesting a 6.6% decline) that USDA temporarily stopped
reporting the data (according to The MILKWEED).
What has been the response of the dairy industry?
They are spending an unprecedented amount of money
marketing milk mustache ads. Wherever I appear, the dairy industry does
damage control by placing more radio, television, and print ads. Have
you noticed how hard they are trying? It's just not working.
Milk prices continue to fall on the wholesale level,
although retail milk prices have not dropped. There is now a government
(GAO) investigation into why. With falling prices, and falling
consumption, dairy farmers continue to produce more milk. They do so by
breeding more cows and injecting their livestock with genetically
engineered hormones, which also increases milk production.
Americans have learned not to drink their pus with
hormones and glue. Not only is the thought of drinking bovine body
fluids offensive to one's sensibilities, but it just happens to taste
awful. Kids know this, and are now getting the TRUTH via the Internet.
We have been planting the seeds of the destruction of an
industry, which continues to brainwash Americans with their milk myths.
Every sip of milk contains virus, pus, bacteria,
powerful growth hormones, allergenic proteins, antibiotics, pesticides,
fat, cholesterol, and dioxins.
Eighty percent of milk protein is casein, the same glue
used to hold a label to a bottle of beer. There are 59 different
hormones in every sip of milk. FDA allows 750 million pus cells per
liter of milk.
MY MANTRA (Repeat after me) Pus with hormones and
glue...pus with hormones and glue...pus with hormones and glue...
