What is it like to be black in America? The white man assumes that there is equality between the races. The black man knows that there is not. The white woman believes that the black woman has attained equal rights. The black woman is sicker, fatter, and poorer than her white sister.
We whites and blacks now share the same opportunities, and may live on the same streets and work the same jobs. Our brains work the same, and our blood, muscles, and internal organs function in like manners. There is one very powerful difference between the races.
Whites with European backgrounds can tolerate milk and dairy products. Blacks with African ancestry cannot. With that difference considered, it would be hazardous for blacks to consume an amount of dairy equal to whites. It might even be deadly for blacks to consume greater amounts of milk and dairy. That is exactly what they are doing.
Ninety-five percent of African-Americans cannot tolerate lactose. Pizza and ice cream taste delicious on the way into their bodies. Lactose is a sugar, and most people need the enzyme (lactase) to break down lactose into glucose and galactose. Intact, this sugar is broken down in the intestines by bacteria and the results are gas, bloating, and intestinal distress.
Casein represents eighty percent of milk protein. This tenacious glue causes histamine production, the body's natural defense against an invading antigen. One's antibodies result in mucus, and plenty of it.
Inner-city school systems like Boston, New York, Detroit, Chicago, and Los Angeles have very large populations of African-American students. In New York City, 38 percent of homeless children and 25 percent of kids in the Bronx schools have asthma. Got milk? Got cheese? These kids do, particularly chocolate milk.
Milk contains powerful hormones. Rates of sexual maturity in children are astounding 21st century endocrinologists and behavioral psychologists. A recent study revealed that eighty percent of nine-year-old African-American girls had breast development with early sexual maturity.
Children are becoming overweight at an earlier age too. By eating growth hormones in combination with animal fat, the body has a way of listening to the signals of those chemical messengers: Grow!
One out of five children has attention deficit disorder (ADD). A recent study in the Journal of Autism linked ADD with a milk protein, casomorphin. This opiate is similar to morphine, and it can be found in the healthiest milk from the healthiest cows.
Many children of color live below the poverty level. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) provides free food and nutritional programs for these kids. In its lack of wisdom, USDA has chosen milk and dairy products to be the major components of these kid's diets. These children now receive free breakfasts of cereal with milk, free lunches of chocolate with macaroni and cheese or pizza. A subsidized snack before they go home is more chocolate milk.
Milk buffers gastric pH so that food in the stomach ferments and putrefies. Kids drink hormones and act irritable. In May of 1995, the Townsend Medical Letter listed eleven symptoms from milk consumption including mood swings, depression, and irratibility.
Milk is slavery to impoverished children. Milk takes away their ability to learn. Poverty in America translates into a billion dollar giveaway program. That gift to poor black children and parents is free cheese and milk.
Add to that the dairy industry's milk mustache campaign.
As African-American women read pro-milk propaganda in women's magazines, reinforced by milk mustache ads, rates of breast cancer, osteoporosis, and diabetes soar to become epidemics.
South African black women eat just 196 milligrams of calcium per day, yet American women, who are eating 986 milligrams of calcium daily, experience eleven times the rate of pelvic fractures as their African sisters.
The consumption of cheese has more than tripled in the past twenty years from an average of 10 pounds per person each year to 31 pounds. Combine that with an enormous campaign that targets African-Americans by hiring athletes, models, actresses, and celebrities to pose with milk mustaches, and we find the reason for increased rates of allergies, breast cancer, osteoporosis, asthma, diabetes, and other ailments in the African-American community.
Can things be worse for blacks? Unfortunately, the answer is yes. The latest death statistics confirm that black people face medical genocide, when it comes to cancer.
Despite new cancer procedures, which include earlier rates of detection and technologically advanced means of treating carcinomas, blacks are not keeping up with white survival rates.
As black people are targeted by dairy industry promotions to consume more milk and cheese, and by government regulators to eat what is white in the name of good health, they ingest increased amounts of powerful hormones.
There are hundreds of millions of different proteins in nature, and only one hormone that is identical between any two species. That powerful growth hormone is insulin-like growth factor, or IGF-I. IGF-I survives digestion and has been identified as a key factor in cancer's growth. IGF-I is identical in human and cow.
If you believe that breast feeding "works" to protect lactoferrins and immunoglobulins from digestion (and benefit the nursing infant), you must also recognize that milk is a hormonal delivery system. By drinking cow's milk, one delivers IGF-I in a bioactive form to the body's cells. When IGF-I from cow's milk alights upon an existing cancer, it's the signal to grow. To proliferate. IGF-I has been called a key factor in the growth and proliferation of every human cancer.
The latest cancer data have been recently published by the SEER cancer statistics review and the National Cancer Institute. For this column, I compare 1980 death rates to year 2000 death rates. Statistics are per 100,000 of population.
A cancer takes 8-10 years to grow from one cell to one-million cells. As a result of increased surveillance and awareness, cancers are being diagnosed much earlier than ever before. As a result of increased technologies, cancer death rates have been reversed among whites. During this same time frame, blacks have been the target of the dairy industry and government. Breast cancer death rates for whites have dropped. Breast cancer rates for blacks have increased. Prostate cancer death rates for white men have decreased. The rate for black men has increased by double digits. The same can be said for colon cancer death rates.
Here are the actual data.
From 1980 until 2000, colon cancer death rates decreased by a factor of 27.6 percent for white males and 29.6 percent for white females. Black females experienced only a 7.3 percent decrease, while black males experienced a 6 percent increase.
From 1980 until 2000, breast cancer death rates decreased by a factor of 17.6 percent for white women, while breast cancer rates for black women increased by a factor of 9.1 percent.
From 1980 until 2000, prostate cancer death rates decreased by a factor of 7.6 percent for white males, while prostate cancer rates for black males increased by a factor of 11.6 percent.
Lympoma rates for males and females were about equal. Amazingly, despite increased technologies, lymphoma rates have soared equally for both races.
While rates of breast, prostate, and colon cancer were decreasing for white men and women, rates of lymphatic cancer deaths increased 39 percent for white males and
27.3 percent for white females. Black males suffered an increase of 31.4 percent, while black female deaths increased by a factor of 35.5 percent.
An argument for the etiology of these shocking results can be made for the new genetically engineered bovine growth hormone. See:
In October of 1992, Scientific American wrote:
"The National Dairy Board's Slogan, 'Milk. It does a body good,' sounds a little hollow these days."
More than a decade later, those words have never been more true.
