THE MILK LETTER : A MESSAGE TO MY

To my thinking, there is only one valid reason to drink
milk or use milk products. That is just because we simply want to. Because
we like it and because it has become a part of our culture. Because we
have become accustomed to its taste and texture. Because we like the way
it slides down our throat. Because our parents did the very best they
could for us and provided milk in our earliest training and conditioning.
They taught us to like it. And then probably the very best reason is…ICE
CREAM! I've heard it described "…to die for".
I had one patient who did exactly that. He had no
obvious vices. He didn't smoke or drink, he didn't eat meat, his diet and
lifestyle was nearly a perfectly health promoting one; but he had a
passion. You guessed it, he loved rich ice cream. A pint of the richest
would be a lean day's ration for him. On many occasions he would eat an
entire quart - and yes there were some cookies and other pastries. Good
ice cream deserves this after all. He seemed to be in good health despite
some expected "middle age spread" when he had a devastating stroke which
left him paralyzed, miserable and helpless, and he had additional strokes
and died several years later never having left a hospital or
rehabilitation unit. Was he old? I don't think so. He was in his 50s.
So don't drink milk for health. I am convinced on the
weight of the scientific evidence that it does not "do a body good."
Inclusion of milk will only reduce your diet's nutritional value and
Most of the people on this planet live very healthfully
without cows' milk. You can too.
It will be difficult to change; we've been conditioned
since childhood to think of milk as "nature's most perfect food." I'll
guarantee you that it will be safe, improve your health and it won't cost
anything. What can you lose?

The Meat Free Zone (MFZ) campaign is intended to make the MeatFreeZone logo as
recognizable a symbol as the "Smoke Free Zone". The idea was originally
conceived when The WARM Store in Woodstock, NY, was in operation throughout the
'90's (Woodstock Animal Rights Movement). The store was truly a meat free zone
as it was the first cruelty-free, Vegan, socially conscious animal rights store
in the United States. Now that the Vegan and Vegetarian movements have been
growing so rapidly, more and more people are showing concern about the food in
their diet and their overall health and nutrition. Many people are giving up
eating fish, chicken, beef, pork (pigs ), dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt,
ice cream) and eggs. Headlines of Mad Cow disease, E-coli
and salmonella are in the news with greater frequency. Vegan and vegetarian
recipe cookbooks are standard now in all bookstores and many restaurants have
added Vegan and Vegetarian options to their menus. We hope you will help us with
the Meat Free Zone campaign by putting the signs up in your homes and workplaces
and by spreading them to all the vegetarian and vegan restaurants that you know
and frequent. And someday we will have true "meat free zones" in establishments
that serve meat.
