Opinions about Milk

"I have run into patients who undergo marked alterations in behavior patterns when ingesting dairy products, and whose behavior is totally changed by withholding them."
      -- Pediatrics 1979;64(5) John J. Murray, MD

"I would call milk perhaps the most unhealthful vehicle for calcium that one could possibly imagine, which is the only thing people really drink it for, but whenever you challenge existing dogma...people are resistant."
     -- Neal Barnard, M.D., Director of the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine

"So don't drink milk for health. I am convinced on the weight of the scientific evidence that it does not 'do a body good.' Inclusion of milk will only reduce your diet's nutritional value and safety."
    -- Save Yourself From Breast Cancer, by Robert M. Kradjian, M.D.

"Everyone that useths milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil."
    -- King James Version of The Holy Bible, Hebrews: 5:13-14
