The Disturbing Truth About Cow's Milk and your HealthBook - 2010
North Americans are some of the least healthy people on Earth. Despite advanced medical care and one of the highest standards of living in the world, one in three Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and 50% of US children are overweight.
This crisis in personal health is largely the result of chronically poor dietary and lifestyle choices. In Whitewash, Joseph Keon unveils how North Americans unwittingly sabotage their health every day by drinking milk, and shows that our obsession with calcium is unwarranted.
Citing scientific literature, Whitewash builds an unassailable case that not only is milk unnecessary for human health; its inclusion in the diet may increase the risk of serious diseases including:prostate, breast, and ovarian cancers osteoporosis diabetes vascular disease Crohn's disease.
Many of America's dairy herds contain sick and immunocompromised animals whose tainted milk regularly makes it to market. Cow's milk is also a sink for environmental contaminants, and has been found to contain traces of pesticides, dioxins, PCBs, rocket fuel, and even radioactive isotopes.
Whitewash offers a completely fresh, candid and comprehensively documented look behind dairy's deceptively green pastures, and gives readers a hopeful picture of life after milk.

Contrary to the messages in the milk advertisements of the last several years, people who consume cow's milk are more likely to have weight problems. 76 [footnote] And the more they consume, the greater the problems. This shouldn't be a surprise, given that three eight-ounce servings of milk add 450 calories and 24 grams of fat to the diet. 77 p. 51
When people ask me how to lose weight, the first thing I recommend is that they eliminate cow's milk from their diet. As I indicated earlier, cow's milk is formulated to double a calf's birth weight in a mere 47 days, and grow it to an awesome 300 lb animal in just 12 months. This tendency to encourage weight gain can be a real burden for people trying to lose weight. p.51
