Sue Baker's view...

Damien McCrystal reveals a food crisis most of us didn’t even know existed. Nearly all the milk we drink comes from a line of genetically mutated cows and contains a protein known as AI. Historically we have drunk milk containing the protein A2, also found in human and goat’s milk. The AI protein is less digestible and there is increasing evidence it’s behind many modern digestive problems. Will the dairy industry change or will they face public criticism and debate?

Synopsis

The Milk Mutation The Hidden Danger in Our Dairy by Damien McCrystal

The vast bulk of the Western world's milk (A1 milk) comes from cows descended from a genetically mutated 'founder'. The mutation meant that the dominant protein in their milk changed. An alternative protein, A2, predates the A1 protein. Human breast milk (as well as that of goats and sheep) shares the characteristics of A2 milk. The full effects are still being unravelled, but it is clear that A1 milk does not digest as easily as A2 and is associated with bloating, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhoea and constipation. All babies have permeable digestive systems and are therefore particularly susceptible. Older children and adults who have a 'leaky gut' are also in danger. More worryingly, numerous studies have linked A1 to type 1 diabetes, heart disease, autism, sudden infant death syndrome, asthma and eczema. In Australia increasing numbers of people are turning their backs on A1 milk. And it is now taking off in the UK. Twenty substantial herds here have converted to pure A2 and a great many more are considering it. The debate now resembles that around tobacco 50 years ago: some people don't want change, and the vested interests of the dairy industry are resisting the coming revolution. This book allows the public to start the real debate.
