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.
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.
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."
