Milk, Pasteurization, Pus, Steroids, Lactose Intolerance and the Facts

Milk, Pasteurization, Pus, Steroids, Lactose Intolerance and the Facts

Q: Is milk good for you?

No. Cutting pasteurized Milk and Dairy out of your diet is one of the best things you can do for your health.

Which one of these glasses of milk would you drink?

  1. Glass of Milk #1 has three drops of Pus put into it
  2. Glass of Milk #2 is loaded with the waste products of very harsh Steroids
  3. Glass of Milk #3 has Pesticide residues in it
  4. Glass of Milk #4 has live Killer Bacteria in it
  5. Glass of Milk #5 has Bovine Antibiotics
  6. Glass of Milk #6 has all of the above
  7. Glass of Milk #7 is clean, pure and taken straight from an open range grass fed cow free of all drugs

The reality is that every glass of milk sold is actually #6. There is hope for us dairy lovers in Magic Glass of Milk #7 but first lets learn why Milk as we know it is a disaster to our Health.
My Personal Journey with Milk

I am EXTREMELY lactose intolerant and for I could barely drink milk without having major diarrhea, gas and bloating. Despite this I loved dairy and would consume cheese or anything else I might have a shot at holding in. For years I had horrible acne, allergies and asthma. They all went away once I just gave up milk completely. Only recently have I given up all pasteurized dairy products and the results are even better. I have lost 13 pounds and my energy levels are much higher. Also my gas is nearly gone. Even better than my new found health is I am now enjoying milk and diary again and it;s better than I have ever had it. Magic glass #7 is the key but first lets talk about why I went through dairy hell my entire life. All milk sold in stores today is pasteurized and homogenized. Lets talk about pasteurization.


Pasteurization of milk is done by keeping the milk at a temperature of 145 degrees to 150 degrees F. for half an hour, at least, and then reducing the temperature to not more than 55 degrees F. The process was named after Louie Pastuer, the French chemist who invented the process to keep wine and beer from souring. Pasteurization is only meant to reduce the growth of bacteria in milk not kill it off.  Pasteurization was instituted in the 1920s to combat TB, infant diarrhea, undulant fever and other diseases caused by poor animal nutrition and dirty production methods. Modern stainless steel tanks, milking machines, refrigerated trucks and inspection methods make pasteurization unnecessary for public protection.

Good things about Pasteurization

  • Sometimes kills some bacteria and pathogens such as tuberculosis and salmonellosis.
  • Milk can last longer on shelves before souring, 2-3 weeks as opposed to a week ( more profit for dairy industry)

Bad things about Pasteurization

  • Inspection of dairy herds for disease is not required for pasteurized milk
  • Pasteurization does not always kill the bacteria for Johne’s disease suspected of causing Crohn’s disease in humans with which most confinement cows are infected
  • Denatures fragile milk proteins and thus eliminates one of the main benefits, especially for children
  • Destroys vitamins C, B12 and B6
  • Does not remove the Pus, Pesticides and Steroids found in dairy industry cows milk
  • Destroys enzymes, which are essential for proper digestion. The destruction of vital enzymes forces our body, mainly our pancreas to work overtime to produce it’s own enzymes. This puts tremendous unnatural strain on our bodies. More on Enzymes later.
  • Destroys the enyzme phosphatase which helps our bodies absorb the calcium in milk. This frequently leads to rickets, bad teeth, and nervous troubles, for sufficient calcium content is vital to children; and with the loss of phosphorus also associated with calcium, bone and breain formation suffer serious setbacks.
  • Destroys the enzyme Lactase which the body needs to digest the lactose prevalent in milk. Lactase is destroyed by pasteurization, thus we cannot digest most of the pasteurized milk we drink and it putrefies and rots inside of us until expelled.
  • Calves fed pasteurized milk do poorly and many die before maturity.
  • Kills beneficial bacteria which our digestive tract needs to function properly
  • Pasteurization laws favor large, industrialized dairy operations and squeeze out small farmers.

Lets see what other baggage comes with Pasteurized milk.

  • Homogenization: is a process that breaks down butterfat globules so they do not rise to the top. Homogenized milk has been linked to heart disease. The process of homogenization is an extremely violent process for any living fluid to undergone as a massive centerfuge is used to disrupt milk’s natural texture and separation of fat and fluid.
  • Genetic Breeding: Almost all Pasteurized milk today comes from the modern Holstein cow. They have been bred to produce huge quantities of milk–three times as much as the old-fashioned cow.
  • PUS : A cows’ udders were never designed to produce so much milk thus they develop an extremely painful bladder infection called Mastitis. Their bodies naturally try and fight this infection and those white blood cells that die fighting it become Pus. The pus problem has gotten so bad that the government has passed laws limiting the amount of pus that can be in milk. It basically comes out to a limit of two drops of pus allowed in each drop of milk. You’d think the FDA would try to protect us and not allow any pus at all but they do not even enforce the two drops of pus limit per glass. Instead the average glass of pasteurized milk has over three drops of pus. The FDA lets this slide, such is the power of the dairy industries lobbyists.
  • Antibiotics are also given to them to control this infection. The antibodies are passed on to us and this is one of the main reasons why the antibiotic resistance of the human population is so high, thus we too need more drugs from pharmaceutical companies to fight off the diseases that plague us.
  • Karma:  Cows breed for milk and slaughter by the modern dairy industry are kept in cages so small they cannot even turn around. Imagine living your entire life in a cage the size of a coffin. These creatures are not happy. Would you feed your child milk from a creature that has known misery it’s entire life? The effect has been scientifically noted. Vital nutrients like vitamins A, D, and vitamin K2 are greatest in milk from cows eating green grass, especially rapidly growing green grass in the spring and fall. Vitamins A and D are greatly diminished, and K2 disappears, when milk cows are fed commercial feed. Soy meal has the wrong protein profile for the dairy cow, resulting in a short burst of high milk production followed by premature death. Even milk labeled “organic” can come from cows in cages. Look for “free range”
  • Pesticides: Real feed for cows is green grass in Spring, Summer and Fall; stored dry hay, silage, hay and root vegetables in Winter. It is not soy meal, cottonseed meal or other commercial feeds, nor is it bakery waste, chicken manure or citrus peel cake, laced with pesticides.

Wow, this information shocks me seeing it all here in one place.  For those not convinced here is some more research with sources.

The Cat Experiment
The experiments of Dr. Francis Pottenger in the 1940’s can help to solve this mystery. In these experiments Dr. Pottenger fed one group of cats a diet consisting of raw milk, raw meat and cod liver oil. Other groups were given pasteurized milk, evaporated milk or sweetened condensed milk instead of raw milk. The results were conclusive and astounding. Those that ate raw milk and raw meat did well and lived long, happy, active lives free of any signs of degenerative disease. Those cats on pasteurized milk suffered from acute illnesses (vomiting, diarrhea) and succumbed to every degenerative disease now flourishing in our population, even though they were also getting raw meat and cod liver oil. By the 3rd generation a vast majority of the cats were infertile and exhibited “anti-social” behavior — in short, they were like modern Americans.

Pasteurized Milk and Children. Parents read up.

What the nations Leading pediatrician has to say about pasteurized milk.
There have been numerous books written in the past decade about the dangers of pasteurized dairy products — the most influential being a book by Frank Oski, MD, the current chairman of pediatrics of Johns Hopkins University and perhaps the most influential pediatrician in this country. It’s called Don’t Drink Your Milk. In it Oski pins just about every health problem in children to the consumption of milk, everything from acute and chronic ear infections, constipation, asthma, eczema, and so on.

Pasteurized Milk Is Implicated in Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

  • “Those who consumed cows milk were fourteen times more likely to die from diarrhea-related complications and four times more likely to die of pneumonia than were breast-fed babies. Intolerance and allergy to cow’s milk products is a factor in sudden infant death syndrome.” -The Lancet, vol. 344, November 5, 1994

Pasteurized Milk Causes Allergies—Especially in Young Children

  • “Most formula fed infants developed symptoms of allergic rejection to cow milk proteins before one month of age. About 50-70% experienced rashes or other skin symptoms, 50-60 percent gastrointestinal symptoms, and 20-30 percent respiratory symptoms. The recommended therapy is to avoid cow’s milk.” -Pediatric-Allergy-Immunology, August, 1994, 5(5 Suppl.)

Pasteurized is Linked to Juvenile Diabetes

  • “These new studies, and more than 20 well-documented previous ones, have prompted one researcher to say the link between milk and juvenile diabetes is ‘very solid’.” –Diabetes Care 1994;17 (12)

Pasteurized Milk Causes Mucus, Sinus Infections, Congestion & Ear Infections

  • “At least 50% of all children in the United States are allergic to milk, many undiagnosed. Dairy products are the leading cause of food allergy, often revealed by constipation, diarrhea, and fatigue. Many cases of asthma and sinus infections are reported to be relieved and even eliminated by cutting out dairy.”  -Natural Health, July, 1994, Frank Oski, M.D., Chief of Pediatrics at Johns Hopkins Medical School
  • “Milk allergies are very common in children… They are the leading cause of the chronic ear infections that plague up to 40% of all children under the age of six.” -Julian Whitaker, M.D., “Health & Healing,” October, 1998, Volume 8, No. 10

Pasteurized Milk Contains Pesticides, Antibiotics & Killer Bacteria

  • “A 1988 FDA survey of milk samples from grocery stores in 10 cities found that 73% of the samples contained pesticide residues.”-Environmental Contamination and Toxicology, 1991; 47
  • “Milk from cows inoculated with  listeria was pooled for 2 to 4 days and then heated at 162 degrees Fahrenheit for 16 seconds in a high-temperature, short-time pasteurization unit. Live listeria bacteria was then successfully isolated from the milk after heat treatment in 11 of 12 pasteurization trials.” -Journal of Environmental Microbiology. July 1987, (53)
  • “… curing alone may not be a sufficient pathogen control step to eliminate Salmonella, Listeria, and E. coli O157:H7 from cheese.” -J Food Prot, 1998 Oct, 61:10

As someone loves milk, cheese and all manner of dairy, this was hard for me to accept but when I saw the evidence I just dropped all pasteurized dairy.

Does this mean no Milk or Cheese ever? No, you can have milk and cheese but it must be the way nature intended…


Magic Glass #7 is Raw Milk. Raw Milk is the term given to milk that has been taken straight from a open range, grass fed cow free of drugs. This is what people lived off of before the emergence of the modern day dairy industry. There is a reason why all cultures world wide and preindustrial civilizations have valued milk so highly. Raw Milk is simply a wondrous and amazing Health Food. There is also a reason why the modern day dairy industry has had advertising campaigns such as the “Milk does a Body Good” TV ads. Why would they have to advertise something that we have always known is good for us? The reason is the growing rise of people against Pasteurization and the modern dairy industry.

Angel Murasso says:

I believe that avoiding refined foods could be the first step to be able to lose weight. They may taste beneficial, but highly processed foods currently have very little vitamins and minerals, making you take in more to have enough electricity to get through the day. Should you be constantly feeding on these foods, changing to whole grains and other complex carbohydrates will help you have more electricity while consuming less. Good blog post.

Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet
the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get
annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about.
You managed to hit the nail upon the top and
defined out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

When I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now

There has to be a way you are able to remove me from that service?
Thanks a lot!

I agree with you wholeheatedly, but I would also like to mention another thing. Milk in general, pasteurized or not pasteurized is not made for human consumption. If you go to the webstie you will see that many doctors believe that each organism’s milk is designed specifically for that organism’s offspring. They mention everything that you have mentioned about all the hormones, pus, and other stuff we would rather not know about in the milk, plus more.

Ida says:

Hi Ray, just a little correction. Mastitis is the infection of the mammary glands or Udder in this case (cows).

Rebecca Dieffenbach says:

I believe that it is about time we all start reading this and realizing the FACT is that milk not out of the cow and straight into your glass is nasty and disgusting and we all need to pay attention to where we buy our milk. Store bought, homogenized, pasteurized milk is disgusting, dangerous and very unhealthy. Want facts? Read the book the Raw truth about milk by William Campbell Douglass who by the way is an MD! He has all kinds of facts and resources and give you exact people and places to check the info. Milk is just fine without being pasteurized and homogenizing it makes it a serious health hazard. It is funny how when you start making people aware of the reality of food and where it comes from that someone tries to discredit them. Our food supply is one of the most dangerous in the world. Chemicals, pus, hormones, they are in everything we eat and drink because no one keeps an eye on Big Ag since they have enough money to pay everyone who should be paying attention off. I will not dink milk from the store, I have goats and a Jersey cow who povide all my dairy products. this is now something new, it is something we need to pay attention too. the government has no right to regulate what food we buy or ingest. If someone I know whats healthy fresh raw milk it is here

Ray says:

Dairy Girl, did you even read the article? each glass of milk we drink has 3x more than the legally allowed amount of pus. While milk may not be touched by human hands, the cows that give the milk are doped up on hormones and antibodies, hence the pus. As for pasteurization… it was beneficial 90 years ago when there was no moving refrigeration and production methods were no where near sanitary. The only reason to pasteurize milk now is to extend shelf life and thus profits. Did you read the article?

You talk about facts quite a bit but I have yet to see one fact in your post.

Dairy Girl says:

I am sorry but I think you need to get some facts straight about a lot of things before you go post this kind of thing on a website. Like the fact the milk is the safest and most nutritious food out there for the price. And it is the only food product that never ever touches human hands. It is ran the pipes that are constantly being sanatized and rinsed. Milk is pastuerized to kill any possible bacteria as well as test for any trace of drugs that may be in the milk and if it is positive, the milk is disposed of and not used. Dairy farmers take pride in the product that they sell because it is their way of living and they are not going to do anything that is harmful to the animals or anything else because if something happens they don’t get a paycheck. There is also no food item out there that has more federal and state regulations than milk. Inspections start at the farm and continue to the checking of expirations at the store so if you want a safe food product. I would highly recommend dairy products! I have drank milk my entire life as well as grew up on a dairy farm and am now working at a dairy so I know what goes on and I will continue to drink and eat the safest food and beverage out there. By the way I have never been overweight a day in my life and don’t have any health problems. So next time you want to post something get your facts straight

Patricia Pridmore says:

I think this article is about factory farming, I have seen quite a few videos of what goes on inside a factory farm and I would never want to live that way. I think all factory farming should be done away with. Cows should live in pastures and pigs should live in a pig sti!! All the shots they are given is not right, nor is force feeding ducks to get bigger livers. It makes a person feel guilty for eating meat, eggs, or drinking milk.

Ray says:

Hi Krista,

People want to know where they can buy good food and good milk. This isn’t a war against farmers it is a battle against ignorance. Are you with Ab Ranch? I’d love to ask you some questions and then maybe feature you in an interview/article about how frustrated farmers are at the misinformation out there and how many farmers do take pride in their products.

Krista says:

Listen here. I agree with your info about pasturization. Unfortunately it is highly illegal to sell the raw milk as a producer and the government keeps a very firm thumb on that, but I ask that you change your ” coffin city brain” opinion about cattle producers. Yes you are entitled to an opinion but it is very tastless to state ” facts” about these animals living conditions and well being. I can guarantee you that a majority of these animals that we raise as well as the dairy farmers I relief milk for live a more comfortable and pleasant lifestyle than you and your family. Yes there maybe some asses in the farming industry but you should do research on the topic and physically witness the farms that supply our country. Maybe just take the time instead of critisizing us as a general population to look around you and drive your fancy little hybrid out of the city limits. You might be ashamed of your posted articles… God bless you
