"Cow's milk in the past has always been oversold as the perfect food, but we are now seeing that it isn't the perfect food at all and the government really shouldn't be behind any efforts to promote it as such."
Benjamin Spock, M.D.
"These dairymen are organized; they're adamant, they're militant...And they, they're massing an enormous amount of money that they're going to put into political activities, very frankly."
Secretary of the Treasury John Connally to President Richard Nixon, from The Watergate Tapes, March 23, 1971
"My illness is due to my doctor's insistence that I drink milk, a whitish fluid they force down helpless babies."
"The casein content of cow's milk is 300% more than is contained in mother's milk. Casein is a milk by-product used as one of the most tenacious glues for gluing wood together."
Dr. N.W. Walker
"Everyone that useths milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil."
King James Version of The Holy Bible, HEBREWS: 5:13-14
"To my thinking, there is only one valid reason to drink or use milk products. That is just because we simply want to. Because we like it and because it has become 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'."
Robert M. Kradjian, MD, Surgeon and Author of Save Yourself From Breast Cancer
"Cow's milk is not suited for human consumption. Milk causes constipation, biliousness, coated tongue, headache, and these are the symptoms of intestinal auto-intoxication. Soybean milk, and nut milks are excellent substitutes, and have practically the same analyses, and the danger of disease is removed."
Jethro Kloss, Back to Eden, 1939
"I would call milk perhaps the most unhealthful vehicle for calcium that one could possibly imagine, which is the only thing people really drink it for, but whenever you challenge existing dogma... people are resistant."
Neal Barnard, M.D.
"If your eyes are set wide apart you should be a vegetarian, because you inherit the digestive characteristics of bovine ancestry."
Dr. Linard Williams, London, 1932
