Truth or Dairy

A presentation by – John McDougall, M.D. .

The dairy industry is really big business, so you might expect hard line marketing from them. But would you expect them to aggressively sell their products if they were known to be harmful to people—especially to women and children? In this presentation, nutrition expert Dr. John McDougall will present the truth about the dangers of milk and other dairy products—information based on facts, not on a big marketing budget or milk mustaches.

A board-certified internist, John McDougall, M.D., is the author of 10 national bestselling books and the international on-line “McDougall Newsletter.” He hosts the nationally syndicated television show McDougall M.D. and is the medical director of the 10- day, live-in McDougall Program in Santa Rosa, California. Other McDougall activities include seminars and health-oriented adventure vacations. Dr. McDougall has been studying, writing, and speaking out about the effects of nutrition on disease for over twenty years. A former Hawaii resident, he was once on the medical staff of Castle Medical Center.

    I have been going without dairy for some time now since ltilte Creed is allergic. Did you know there are about 15 different names for dairy. Goats milk has the same protein he its allergic to. Have you tried better than creamcheese or better than sour cream? I now like it better than the real stuff and freddy’s has it. Also I luv almond milk the best we cook with it and if you make a strawberry milk shake w/the almond vanilla and frozen strawberries it is way better than the real thing and not so many calories. I feel way better without the milk myself, but so far the only chocolate I can find is the guittard dark chips. Why did you cut dairy Jen? Miss u xo ps u should try coconut milk ice cream a couple soon fulls and you are done!

    I am extremely grtafeul for my personal physician on Cape Cod who practices lifestyle medicine. He’s part of the largest internal medical practice on the Cape Emerald Physicians and with its 11 offices, each staff member of this unique practice is making an impact on the entire Cape community. My doctor often lectures gratis on Saturdays, and spreads the message about the healing benefits of plant based foods. He is whole foods,plant based, a physician who walks the talk! Imagine that!!! Every year the practice sponsors a VivaPalooza Health Fest with speakers, vendors, food, etc. In 2008 Dr. Esselstyn was the Health Fest’s keynote speaker. Still, there are those physicians, down the street, who continue to practice medicine in the dark. A friend who was eating healthy’ for a few months went to his physician on the Cape, and the doctor wanted to know what lifestyle changes he made since his BP and cholesterol were remarkably lower. This elder friend responded that he was eating vegan’. His doctor, reportedly, was aghast and told him not to indulge in that; that those people’ are sickly. Well, you can imagine the rest of the story. Our friend returned home, told his honey that he was no longer going to eat twigs and nuts’, and that he wanted a steak. Can you guess how his health is today? This should be a paradigm shift that sweeps across the country like the Santa Ana winds. It’s blowing, not gale force, as yet, but change is happening. With physicians like those in our family (you know who they are), word is spreading. So, Jim, you are a light in this crusade. Bless you for your fortitude, faith, tenacity, and truth telling. Keep it up. You are appreciated!
