This has been taken from the website called Not Milk. I have broken the letter up as it’s quite long and very rich in terms of what we need to know. Small doses may help in terms of taking it in. Thus I’m going to produce a series of posts based on this letter. Watch this space 🙂

The association with anaemia and occult intestinal bleeding in infants is known to all physicians. This is chiefly from its lack of iron and its irritating qualities for the intestinal mucosa. The paediatric literature abounds with articles describing irritated intestinal lining, bleeding, increased permeability as well as colic, diarrhoea and vomiting in cows’ milk-sensitive babies. The anaemia gets a double push by loss of blood and iron as well as deficiency of iron in the cows’ milk. Milk is also the leading cause of childhood allergy.

Read more about this in future blog posts. They wont have huge gaps between them so it wont be long. If you don’t want to keep checking this website, sign up here and receive notifications about new posts.

Last 2 things i’ve read on here regarding milk seems to paint milk (cows milk specifically) is the root of all evil 🙁 Little Babies dont even have normal milk for the 1st year or something like that. Maybe i’m wrong, just goin off what very limited knownledge i have. I dont think milk is the sole reason for lacking of iron and subsequent anaemia and intestinal bleeding in infants. Obvious comment i know haha. Their diet overall is probably a bigger factor. I’d need to read more of it tho.

The hardest part is convincing family members that milk really is poison.

It helps to demonstrate a before and after.

Child miserable before the milk elimination becomes happy child after, with occasional miserable episodes when milk slips in by accident.

It helped us a lot that, after a couple of years of almost no growth, our child gained several inches in height following the milk elimination.

His personality also changed, becoming much calmer and more focused. (Nothing like the elimination of pain to permit

I hopes these thoughts help.

I’m not sure what you mean by this comment 🙂
What about ‘fresh organic’ etc.

    I’m not but there’s a lot of research that does say that milk is ‘bad’ for the body 🙂
