Author, Appetite for Profit: How the Food Industry Undermines Our Health and How to Fight Back
From the foreword: I might be one of the last people you would expect to find questioning the value of dairy products for human health. Not that this is an easy question for most people. The assumption that dairy products are wonderful foods prevails throughout our culture with amazing tenacity. But in my family of origin, this assumption was held with a steadfastness that was virtually religious.
There was a reason. My father founded, owned and ran what became the world’s largest ice cream company --- Baskin-Robbins. Our house included a commercial-sized freezer with each of the 31 flavors, one for each day of the month. By the time I was 21, my father had manufactured and sold more ice cream than any human being who had ever lived on the planet. And he groomed me, his only son, to succeed him. It was his plan that I would follow in his footsteps.
So what am I doing writing a foreword for a book titled

As a child I had severe eczema and asthma. I was a little athlete and a very outgoing kid however I would struggle to run and would often hide out for I felt such shame because of the severe rashes on my arms, legs and at times face.
Dr.'s would have me take antibiotics and put me under heat lamps. If I was on an antibiotic run or spending time under the heat lamp, I was fine. The minute I stopped either treatment, I would get the symptoms back.
After years of this, I met a doc who got me off cow dairy. I was somewhat dubious and as a teen, quite sad about giving up ice cream and cheese however I was also desperate to get better. Within six weeks I was symptom free. It was amazing! My life changed.
Eventually I risked bringing it back into my diet and both, the eczema and the asthma, would return. I learned that cow dairy was not good for me.
As I got older, I began to research cow dairy to understand it beyond me. I was disgusted to learn about the treatment of cows, the process of extracting milk from cows, the cow diet, the use of drugs and creepy food fed to the cow(including dead cow parts), the subsidies system in the US which leads to all the dumping of cow products into the public schools etc.
As I began to live in other countries, I learned about the limited use of cow dairy in other cultures and hence that was followed up by researching the inability of so many folks of other cultures to digest cow dairy.
Some would think this was enough however I then moved on to studying all the myths around calcium and hip replacement narratives that are produced to create fear in people's minds....
Lets just say that I thought I knew a lot about cow dairy and the industry that positions it in our lives and makes American people think that its good for them and beyond that, needed for health and vitality, until I read this book!
Never have I seen all the facts about cow dairy in one place. In addition, some material on this topic can get really wordy and the lingo can be exclusive to folks without medical degrees however Keon presents the info in an approachable lay person form. I have told a few people that it reads "friendly" and when they ask me what I mean, I explain that its like having someone unfold the subject to you rather than you having to work hard to understand the subject.
If you are hoping to improve your health or that of someone you know and you want the entire story, well that is the truths, about milk and you want it all in one place...this is your book-take it from someone who has been at this milk thing for over twenty years.
To your health.
After reading Whitewash, I see that organic or not, dairy products are absolutely not meant for human consumption. The seemingly endless list of increased risk of diseases associated with dairy products should make everyone outraged that we have been brainwashed into believing that the milk of another species is necessary or even the slightest bit healthy for human beings.
I encourage EVERYONE to read this book, and demand that the milk lobby stop lying to the American public!
Did you know that milk is implicated as the primary vector for many cancers, Crohn's, IBD, asthma, chronic fatigue, and inflammation and pain?? And that many viruses and bacteria are not killed by pasteurization, which only heats milk to 161 F (72 C)?
Those are just a few of the many things you will learn from reading this book. You won't just think this book is awesome, you'll probably buy several copies and pass them out to family and friends. I know I did.
Please read this book; your health may depend on it!
cow's milk. This book is a wakeup call regarding taking charge of what you eat and seeking legitimate research to support healthy choices.
Very educational content, appears extremely well researched and is riveting to read. 10 stars if amazon would let me.
