• A new book, “Whitewash” by Joseph Keon, takes on “The Disturbing Truth About Cow’s Milk and Your Health”. Here is the official description:
…In Whitewash, nutritionist Dr. Joseph Keon unveils how North Americans unwittingly sabotage their health every day by drinking milk, and he shows that our obsession with calcium is unwarranted.
Citing scientific literature, Whitewash builds an unassailable case that not only is milk unnecessary for human health, its inclusion in the diet may increase the risk of serious diseases including:
- Prostate, breast, and ovarian cancers
- Vascular disease
- Crohn’s disease
