Editorial Reviews

Got the facts on Milk? (also known as "The Milk Documentary" is an entertaining, award winning feature documentary that dares to question the conventional wisdom of the much publicized health benefits of milk and dairy products. Addressing myth, truth and all in-between, the film is a humorous yet shocking exposition that provokes serious thought about this everyday staple. The film raises questions about dairy's role in cancer, osteoporosis, weight gain, asthma, acne, early menstruation, and more; covers the preponderance of lactose intolerance in communities of color, and explains why dairy consumption is fraught with high-stakes political, economic, ethical and environmental considerations. Got the facts on Milk? has won several film festival awards, including the audience award at the 2008 Rhode Island International Film Festival, and has outraged filmgoers around the world. It sparked a riot at the South Korea Green Film Festival, shocked the audience at DocAviv Documentary Film Festival in Israel, and traumatized attendees of the EcoCinema Environmental Film Festival. This film is not rated. It is a documentary about the potential health effects of milk. The documentary does not contain violence, nudity, sensuality, drug abuse, or adult themed content. The last song in the film, which runs over the end credits, contains a single expletive which is the only hard language in the film."

5.0 out of 5 stars Get the facts and confirm the research on your own. August 30, 2011
By j.hatch
I watched a "backer copy" of this film over the summer, since the filmmaker had to fundraise (kickstarter)to get the final funding to pay for audio rights and insurance to bring the film to market.
The film explores the American conceptions around milk and reveals that most Americans are well informed (by the dairy lobby, which controls the information about dairy in schools and media) and can repeat advertising slogans about dairy. Several scientists are brought in, notable Dr. Campbell of The China Study, to discuss the health implications of dairy, including the links to osteoporosis and some cancers. Also discussed are food subsidies, programs such as WIC, and the amount of dairy producs "hidden" in our foods.
I have a milk allergy as well, but unlike the filmaker, I lived with mine for over thirty years, consuming dairy and having consistent eczema, gas and congestion problems. When I quit dairy a year ago, the symptoms diminished immediately and I lost thirty pounds effortlessly over several months. Now if I have dairy I immediately have a runny nose, itchy eyes, eczema eruptions, and have had hives on occasion. Mainstream thinking is that "kids grow out of" dairy allergies, but I believe most just become manageable as mine did through constant exposure to the allergen.
The additional research is out there on the Internet. Try Google scholar to find some of those thousands of articles examining the health implications of dairy that the film mentions. It can open your eyes to something that may well be the backbone of disease in America.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally - the simple truth about Milk September 23, 2011
Thank You! Finally, someone (Shira and her team) has the will and boldness (chutzpa)to show and tell it like it is; to teach us to question what we are told and almost forced to accept as true.

About a month before seeing this wonderfully presented documentary, I'd given up dairy products, hoping it would help inflammation/bursitis problems I've been having for far too long. I'm feeling so much better, although it takes time.

Not only did the documentary reinforce my decision, it taught me to question everything - to think for myself about what is NATURAL and what now is so obvious.

It's not only about health, it is about the environment and education, about how the system works; MONEY, MONEY, MONEY:
From government and industry to our stomach. It's about government's best customers (mega-corporations - like the dairy industry) and their control over our education system, animals and the farming industry. It's also about the effects of media and ignorance.

Shira utilizes media to educate and to open our eyes! I highly recommend this important documentary/movie, and suggest you do the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential, entertaining and informative November 25, 2011
By Kuhr
I fell on to this film from Dr.McDougal's emails. Sooo glad to have found it. I have watched it twice and would love to share it with everyone I know. I laughed out loud many times, some of it out of sheer happiness that the message is getting out, and the other because I loved the "realness" of the people interviewed across the country. It was extremely informative, bringing the theories and facts to the table without alot of gore and pain to witness. (Which I know exists in the industry, but it can turn off viewers and lose the chance to get the message out to the masses.) A MUST SEE!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Intentions, Very Unpersuasive Presentation May 9, 2013
Verified Purchase
I agree with almost every substantive claim made by this documentary and bought it to play for a friend who drinks too much milk (and was undermining her immune system by the vast amount of antibiotics non-organic milk contains). The kudos on the DVD cover make one hope for a clear coherent presentation of arguments and facts marshaled effectively against dairy products. Alas, a camera in hand and a good heart do not a movie or a movie-maker make. The DVD is a crude piece of agitprop: dull, repetitious, mindless, and disorganized. Watching it is like hearing someone shout out what you are supposed to believe -- and just because they said so. The few solid points were presented so quickly that there was barely time to hear them, and not enough time to think about them, let alone understand them, before the well intentioned director had distracted herself and her viewers with a zig to another sound bite, a zag to a sight-gag, or a repeat of an agitprop conclusion from a few minutes before. Much as I wanted to inform and persuade my friend, we couldn't watch more than an hour of it and I returned the product - something that I rarely ever do.

If you want to learn about the harm caused by dairy products, the collusion of industry with the USDA, and the mass-marketing of lies to trick Americans into damaging their health for the sake of corporate profits, surf the web for serious articles. A good place to start is Dave Rietz's website, [notmilkdotcom...] or T. Colin Campbell's book, "The China Study."

5.0 out of 5 stars An Eye opener November 25, 2011
I love to watch all of the documentary about Food Inc, Gas Hole, Who kill the electrict car, and etc.. I got this from the library and was glad our library has it. Thank you so much for creating this video. I hardly can stand the milk, but my kids consumed huge amount and mature faster rate than I expected. I never heard of cancer, asthma, or heart attack from where I grow up. Now, 90% of people I knew either died of cancer, having cancer, had bipass surgery, etc. Thanks again for the info.
