Devil in the Milk: Illness, Health and the Politics of A1 and A2 Milk

www.amazon.com/Devil-Mil
k-Illness-Health-Politics/
dp/1603581022


This book is not brand-new. It was published in March of 2009 and it is amazing that it has not gotten more reviews or become much better known.
It explains why there are two types of milk, A1 and A2, and why we should only drink A2, but are mostly sold A1 in the grocery store.
Knowing and understanding the difference may make the difference in whether you can tolerate dairy or whether eating dairy causes many health problems, possibly including type 1 diabetes, heart disease, autism and more.
I am only starting to read it but wanted to share the link because many of the reviews are quite helpful to understand the issue.
I am currently experimenting with consuming A2 dairy again and so far it seems to work. More about that in my next blog.

P.S. Any paleo/primal, vegan or low-carb eaters who have read this book, please comment to let me know what you think.

    My grandparents were farmers, we used to have fresh milk every day we visited with them. I had never been a fan of fresh or store bought and with all the information about it hardly ever have any milk, occasionaly on cereal. I DO use coconut and almond milk a lot, but organic or fresh is what I prefer

    Interesting! I didn't know there was any difference in milk other than whether it's organic or not. I have pretty much given up milk of any kind. I do consume a little bit of half and half but that's it.

    Milk and dairy don't affect me but Australia has started offering A2 milk.

Back to natural I say.

    Milk and most dairy products are acidic to the bones, Sam Graci writes about this in his book about which I blogged when I first learned I had osteoporosis - while the majority are listed as low acidic, they are also full of unhealthy things controled by the so called Dairy Board or conglomerates that control what milk is sent to market. I'll check out the link ... I know that when purchasing organic, that sometimes the milk destined to be organic can be stored in a non organic tank .. ends it being organic...
