About the Author

Robert Cohen performed research in the 1970's on the hormonal effects on the brain and behavior. Twenty-five years later, this father of three became concerned about the most controversial drug approval in FDA history, the genetically engineered hormone that is now in our milk supply. Along the way, Cohen discovered that milk is implicated in causing breast cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, and chronic childhood illnesses. Cohen's skills as a researcher, and his passion for the safety of his family, led to his single-minded pursuit to expose the truth about milk. Based on his exhaustive and comprehensive research over the past six years, Cohen predicted the Mad Cow Disease outbreak. His dogged determination has set the American dairy industry on its ear. To insure that all citizens of the world learn the truth, Cohen founded and is executive director of America's Dairy Education Board, a group of nationally prominent doctors dedicated to dispelling the myth that milk is nature's perfect food.

By Dr. Linda F. Palmer on January 8, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Succinct, enjoyable, quickly assimilated - a gratifying and possibly life-saving read. This book provides a fun and quick overview of the evidence and allegations against cow's milk. Don't be fooled by the cover and title, this book is too technical for young readers, although they'll enjoy the pictures while an adult absorbs and relates the information.
For those unfamiliar with the huge and undeniable body of evidence against cow's milk, I hope this book to be an eye-opener that leads its readers to further research the topic for themselves. Every statement in this book is followed by a solid reference; mostly science journal references. Being only an overview, the volume of references in "Milk A - Z" touches only the tip of the iceberg.
For those familiar with the mound of studies about milk's dangers, this book is a great overview, and brings up at least a few new points to nearly any health conscious reader. Because the evidence and number of studies against milk are so overwhelming, I've found it difficult to even begin to recall or portray all of the allegations to those uneducated. "Milk A - Z" will be a great book to have on hand for every friend or patient I attempt to begin educating about milk's dangers. My husband and I both plan to keep a copy out in open view on our desks at work to open the eyes of all lookyloos.
"A - Z" even has a fun quiz at the end. I'm going to give a copy of this book to my child's school. They've already been resistant to my bringing in science journal studies to refute the milk propaganda they give my kid annually. I wonder whether they'll shelf this book?

This book could be better written (which is why I give it only 4 stars), but what it says is VERY important for anyone -- especially a mother with small children. The bottom line is that Nature intended cow's milk to grow calves into cows. It is marginally suitable for human consumption. Check it out -- it's worth reading.

Cohen's book is groundbreaking. I appreciate the fact that it is entirely science-based, and he lists the full citations of studies for each health connection he makes between dairy products and health issues. The dots he is connecting are very relevant to health issues today. Many of the issues raised here are rarely touched on in the larger body of nutritional literature, not because they are invalid, but perhaps due to the industrial interests involved. Many of the issues Cohen addresses are great unsolved mysteries in conventional medicine...but the studies he cites show us that they need not be, should not be. The link of hormones in milk (raw, organic, or commercial) to breast cancer raises the question of the involvement of dairy hormones in all cancers, a matter that we all should be concerned with given the skyrocketing rates of cancer. If we can practice prevention by changing our diets, we can save billions of dollars.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Robert for raising awareness of these connections between dairy and health. Of course there should be follow up research, but part of the problem is money, part of it is that allopathic docs are not trained in nutrition (and let's not confuse dietetics and food pyramids with true nutrition). In the meantime, we have to think for ourselves, and this is a wonderful jumping off point for doing just that. Medical library, here I come!

My main complaint is that I was left wanting for more. There is certainly material here for a more extensive book, and Milk the Deadly Poison lacks continuity and flow and gets wrapped up in issues of litigation, etc. More depth of exploration of various health issues and the way dairy is intertwined into our culture would make a fascinating read.

This book is a brief eye-opener for anyone who consumes dairy, unaware of what is in the products they are consuming, and what dairy products are doing to them. My only complaint is that the book is too short. It is a great place to start for anyone concerned with their own health, and does disclose numerous medical journals and studies to verify its claims. I'd recommend checking out the author's website (notmilk.com). I am happy I bought a copy.

I bought this book used, but it is like brand new. Very easy to read and understand. Can be read in about an hour, but what an informative hour that was. After reading this book, I know now that cow's milk is anything but the perfect food. The dairy industry used to say " you never outgrow your need for milk", that's because you NEVER had a need for cow's milk. It was meant for calves, not humans. They used to say " milk does a body good ", but after reading this book, it is quite clear, cow's milk contributes to many health problems we experience in America today. Especially cancer and diabetes. Every parent needs to read this book so they can bring up their children as healthy as they can be. Cow's milk is one of the most dangerous liquids that people can consume. Read the book and share it with loved ones. This also includes ice cream, butter and cheese.
