Ear Infections and Dairy
By Robert Cohen - [email protected] 

Dear Moms,

Dr. Benjamin Spock sold 75 million copies of his book on raising children. His advice was to never give your child a cow's milk product. Here's what he wrote about ear infections in the 7th Edition of Child Care:

"Cow's milk has become a point of controversy among doctors and nutritionists. There was a time when it was considered very desirable, but research has forced us to rethink this recommendation... dairy products contribute to a surprising number of health problems (including) chronic ear problems..." -Benjamin Spock, M.D.,

Dr. Julian Whitaker, author of the largest read monthly alternative newsletter, wrote in the October, 1998 issue of "Health & Healing," (Volume 8, No. 10):

"Milk allergies are very common in children... They are the leading cause of the chronic ear infections that plague up to 40% of all children under the age of six."

Two great doctors. One great bit of medical advice: Notmilk!

A third opinion:

"If a bottle-fed baby has an ear infection, eliminate milk and dairy products from the child's diet for thirty days to see if any benefits result...a cause of frequent ear infections in children is food allergies." -James Balch, MD, "Prescription for Nutritional Healing"

And a fourth:

"Concerning ear infections, you just don't see this painful condition among infants and children who aren't getting cow's milk into their systems." -William Northrup, M.D., "Natural Health," July, 94

Four great physicians with similar advice. Eliminate the painful suffering of ear aches and ear infections by sharing this advice with a friend or relative.
