A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Milk – 18 December 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

“The late parent advisor Dr. Benjamin Spock maintained that cows’ milk ‘causes internal blood loss, allergies, and indigestion and contributes to some cases of childhood diabetes.’ In the last edition of his famous baby book he recommended, essentially, that children adhere to a vegan diet after the age of two. But he did not recommend dairy milk for babies either. According to renowned nutrition researcher T. Colin Campbell, ‘Cows’-milk protein may be the single most significant chemical carcinogen to which humans are exposed.’ ”

Isn’t it interesting that with all the longstanding, overwhelming proof concerning the harmfulness of dairy product consumption, the powerful dairy industry, with government support, continues to spread their propaganda to the public? Every day the public is inundated with ads featuring celebrities (who have “sold their souls” to the dairy industry) touting milk, “happy” cows, etc. And it’s the most vulnerable – the children – who are victimized by this corruption.
