Whitewash: The Disturbing Truth About Cow's Milk and Your Health (English Edition) eBook Kindle
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 percent of US children are overweight.
This crisis in personal health is largely the result of chronically poor dietary and lifestyle choices. In Whitewash, nutritionist Joseph Keon unveils how North Americans unwittingly sabotage their health every day by drinking milk, and he 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
- 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.
Joseph Keon has been a wellness consultant and nutrition and fitness expert for over twenty-five years. He is considered a leading authority on public health and has written three books, including Whole Health: The Guide to Wellness of Body and Mind and The Truth About Breast Cancer.

Unfortunately, due to the political clout of some of some of our "food" industries, [See Part IV of The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-term Health , "Why Haven't You Heard This Before?"] Canada's Food Guide has long been compromised to feature cow's milk, and products made from it, as an entire "food group".
Even seemingly well educated people can become so entrapped within the mindset of their upbringing, that if confronted by a disparaging remark about dairy products, they may simply respond, "But it's a food group!" Only fairly recently has the guide included alternatives to milk products. Still not fully disclosing and promoting the superior health advantages of a diet comprised mainly of whole unrefined plant foods. Especially by way of contrasting them to the deleterious effects associated with the consumption of conventionally produced dairy products.
There's a good quote at the beginning of chapter one that highlights the absurdity of human populations needing to ingest milk from cows for the duration of their lives. "It seems ridiculous that a man, especially in the midst of his pleasures, should have to go beneath a cow like a calf three times a day -- never weaned." Henry David Thoreau (Circa 1850)
1) What country consumes the most calcium? Answer: the U.S. What country has the highest rate of osteoporosis? Answer: the U.S.
2) Of over 5,000 mammals on Earth, only humans drink the milk of another species. Makes no sense whatsoever.
Full of resources and heavily documented, this book reads like a peer reviewed journal with public appeal. I would encourage anyone who drinks milk, doesn't drink milk or who is simply curious, to check out this information. It's worth the read!
