2) At least 50% of all childern in the US are allergic to cows milk, many undiagnosed . Dairy products are the leading cause of food allergy, often revealed by diarrhea, constipation, and fatigue. Many cases of asthma and sinus infections are reported to be relieved and even eliminated by cutting out dairy. (Nathaniel Mead, M.D., Natural Health, July 1994)

3) IN REALITY, cow’s milk has been linked to a variety of health problems, including: mucous production, hemoglobin loss, childhood diabetes, heart disease, atherosclerosis, arthritis, kidney stones, mood swings, depression, irritability, and allergies. (Julie Klotter, M.D., Townshend Medical Letter, May 1995)

4) Formula-fed babies, at the age of three months, were secreting low levels of serum antibodies to bovine proteins contained in their formula. (Pediatric-Allergy-Immunology, August 1994, 5(3))
