Milk is a very, very huge industry and the big wigs of these conglomerates do not want to disturb this. Milk is big business. Cow's milk is promoted as the "perfect food" for humans, and especially for our children. They will do anything to say milk help their little bones to grow big and strong, very high in protein and calcium; children need this most of all, and yes even go as far as saying that cow’s milk can be better than breast milk. THEY CAN’T BE MORE WRONG!!
Cow's milk is more American than apple pie, but that's because apple pie doesn't have Congressional lobbyists and a multi-million dollar advertising budget. More than 60 of the most powerful Congressional leaders in Washington receive campaign contributions from the National Dairy Council.
A baby corporation has even gone to extend and advertise that their product has enzymes or protein that is similar to breast milk. No way, no one can duplicate mother’s breast milk, especially for each individual whose unique ingredients in each one of us is good for our own children.
These advertisements has put such a strong emphasis on the health of our childrenthat some people view milk commercials as more of a public service announcement than an attempt to sell a product. These ads have told us "Milk is a Natural," "Everybody Needs Milk," "Milk is the Perfect Food," etc. This advertising has served its purpose well because the average American consumes 375 pounds of dairy products a year. One out of every seven dollars spent on groceries in the U.S. goes to buy dairy products.
Despite what the dairy industry has led us to believe, many medical doctors and nutritionists are now saying that cow's milk is not healthy for human consumption, and that it can lead to many serious diseases. When you look at the credentials of the doctors making these statements, it would be hard for the dairy industry to accuse these physicians of being on the lunatic fringe of the medical world.

Another outspoken critic of cow's milk is Dr. William Ellis, a retired osteopathic physician and surgeon in Arlington, Texas, who has researched the effects of dairy products for 42 years. Dr. Ellis says dairy products are "simply no good for humans...
