Trans-Fatty Acids are Good For You?

By Robert Cohen, NotMilk.com

"Obscenity, which is ever blasphemy against the divine beauty in life... is a monster for which the corruption of society forever brings forth new food, which it devours in secret."
- Percy Bysshe Shelley

First, THEY claimed that it cured osteoporosis, after science showed that the nations with the highest dairy intakes had the highest rates of bone disease.

Second, THEY claimed that it cured heart disease, after science showed that the nations with the highest dairy intakes had the highest rates of atherosclerosis.

Third, THEY claimed that it cured cancer, after science showed that the nations with the highest dairy intakes had the highest rates of carcinomas.

Fourth, THEY claimed that it cured congestion, after science showed that the nations with the highest dairy intakes had the highest rates of asthma.

Fifth, THEY claimed that it cured obesity, after science showed that the nations with the highest dairy intakes had the highest rates of chubbiosity.

Today, THEY are claiming that it cures diabetes, after science showed that the nations with the highest dairy intakes had the highest rates of diabetes.

Warning: What do scientists know? After all, their conclusions are based upon...science. Yeech, science. Ptooie! Why take scientists at their word when milk marketing geniuses seem to know so much more?

The dairy industry's latest claim is that the consumption of a trans-fatty acid called trans-palmitoleic acid can cure type-2 diabetes. And how are they so sure? Because studies on rats have shown this to be true, despite the fact that rats do not normally get type-2 diabetes, and because rats lack gall bladders, invalidating every nutritional study ever performed on a rat and applied to a human.

Other than that, rat research works real well...for rats. Consider: Half the diseases rats get, mice do not get, so that extrapolation of data from a rat study to a human is absurd. Moving on...

The journal of the Archives of Internal Medicine (165(9):1011-5) includes a study which details the risk of liver and gallstone disease in men who consume trans-fatty acids.

Walter Willett, Tsai, Leitzmann, et. al. (Harvard University School of Medicine previously determined:

The consumption of trans-fatty acids adversely affects blood lipid levels.

In a 14 year study of 45,912, men, scientists (excuse the expression) concluded that men who consumed the highest amounts of trans-fatty acids suffered the greatest incidences of gallstone disease and other adverse health effects.

I could have told you that, but what do I know? I am just a simple anti-milk marketing guy...

Today, the dairy industry will have you eat trans-fatty acids in the name of good health. If it's science they can't diffuse, their game plan is to confuse.

Health experts and nutritional scientists advise that you eliminate trans-fatty acids from your diet because consumption of same will lead to coronary heart disease.

Today, the dairy industry's new claim is that type-2 diabetes can be cured by consuming wedges of cheese and cartons of ice cream and gallons of milk. Sounds pretty healthy, right? Wrong!

For those who have type-2 diabetes, you can find an alternative cure by seeking the expertise of Dr. John McDougall on the West Coast or Dr. Joel Fuhrman on the East Coast

Skip the dairy, follow their advice, and you'll find a genuine cure to type-2 diabetes and be healthier as a result.

Last but not least...I hate to milk a dead issue, but...

In October of 1992, Scientific (there is that silly word again) American magazine wrote:

The National Dairy Board's Slogan, 'Milk. It does a body good,' sounds a little hollow these days.

Why would Scientific American write such blasphemy?

Perhaps it was because the New England Journal of Medicine (not related to the National Enquirer) reported in their July 30, 1992 issue:

Studies have suggested that bovine serum albumin is the milk protein responsible for the onset of diabetes... 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 autoimmune response.

Coming soon?

Milk cures unemployment, racial discrimination, inflation, homelessness, the economy, wars, famine, and silliness.

With all of the other not-so logical claims, all of the above makes perfect sense to me...
