Re: Detrimental Aspects of Cow’s Milk

Dear Gerry:

Thank you for taking the time to talk to me this evening, and for putting together the information below about the detrimental aspects of cow’s milk. I passed it on to my sister-in-law and about 70 others! Please stay in touch.

"...the drinking of cow milk has been linked to iron-deficiency anemia in infants and children; it has been named as the cause of cramps and diarrhea in much of the world's population, and the cause of multiple forms of allergy as well; and the possibility has been raised that it may play a central role in the origins of atherosclerosis and heart attacks." --Frank Oslki, M.D.
