1 Out of 2,000 Has Become 1 Out of 100

"I have two young children with autism. What could they have ever done to deserve that? What kind of a God allows the innocent to suffer? It's a mystery. Yet still, I believe in God." - Fred Melamed

There is an African-American woman who lives near me (in Bergenfield, New Jersey). She and her three autistic children have been written about in the local newspaper (Bergen Record). Autism does not run in her family. The woman lives in poverty, and is part of USDA's WIC feeding program (Women/Infants/Children) which overdoses her kids with milk and cheese. Experts are at a loss to explain how three kids in the same family can be cursed with intellectual attention deficit disorders. Genetics has been eliminated as the cause.

FDA will call what I observe to be anectodal evidence. Over the past 19 years of my Notmilk experience, I have observed two or more children in the same family with autism or attention deficit. More often than not, these kids with compromised futures live in poverty and are children of color. They receive all the free dairy, courtesy of USDA, and their abilities to learn are also compromised.

In the year 1970, the per capita consumption of cheese in America was ten pounds per year.

In the year 1970, one out of every 2,000 children was diagnosed with autism.

In the year 2012, the per capita consumption of cheese in America will be 32 pounds.

On December 18, 2009, Bloomberg News reported:

Autism Rates Jump 57%

Researchers Tom Randall and Ellen Gibson reported:

Autism rates increased 57 percent from 2002 to 2006...

About 1 in every 110 8-year-olds in the U.S. had autism spectrum disorder in 2006, according to a report today released by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)...

Today in 2012, the CDC reports that one percent of children living in the United States have autism.

Is it merely cheese, or is there some poison-filled magic bullet to be found in America's favorite comfort food?

The answer is already known to many scientists. The healthiest milk from the healthiest cows naturally contains an addictive opiate similar to morphine. That opiate, casomorphine, is responsible for causing autism.

Ten pounds of milk are required to produce one pound of hard cheese. The levels of casomorphine become concentrated as milk is converted to cheese. During the 1970s, 100 pounds of milk were required to produce the ten pounds of cheese consumed by the average American child. Some children were adversely affected and diagnosed with autism.

Today, 320 pounds of milk are concentrated into the 32 pounds of cheese consumed by the average child. The number of kids diagnosed with autism has subsequently soared by a factor of ten times.

Florida researcher, Robert Cade, M.D., and his colleagues have confirmed that casomorphine from milk and cheese is the probable cause of attention deficit disorder and autism. They found Beta-casomorphin-7 in high concentrations in the blood and urine of patients with autism. (AUTISM, 1999, 3)

Eighty percent of cow's milk protein is casein. It has been documented that casein breaks down in the stomach to produce a peptide casomorphine, an opiate. (Panksepp, J., Trends in Neuroscience, 1979, 2)

A third scientist produced evidence of elevated levels of endorphin-like substances in the cerebro-spinal fluid of people with autism. (Gillberg, C. (1988) Aspects of Autism: Biological Research Gaskell:London, pp. 31-37)

For children with autism, dairy products may very well be the major factor. The proper therapy for these kids is Notmilk!
