Early puberty — a realtime update from a reader

After blogging on this subject last week,one of my readers shared it with her daughter — whose six-year old was showing some early puberty signs. Just received an email from this young mother (a school psychologist) on Monday…

Now that science has proven that cow's milk is not healthful for humans at any age, one must wonder how long it will take our policy makers to pass that news along to our innocent consumers.

Hi Jim, My mother saw your blog and thought you would be interested in my observations made recently concerning my six year old daughter.  I have no agenda other than wanting the public to be made more aware of this issue. My daughter was attending a local public school and we switched her to a private school.  Her diet went from school lunches and the daily dose of strawberry milk to a lunch I now make for her every day and water with her lunch.  She does consume milk at home but it has no hormones added.

With a new celebrity sporting a milk mustache almost every week, how is an uninformed public supposed to know that cow's milk promotes heart disease, cancer, type 2 diabetes, and osteoporosis. That's right, countries that consume the most dairy also have the highest incidence of osteoporosis. If this information shocks you, order The China Study today.

Bottom line: in one month the early puberty we were noticing has not only stopped but regressed.  We are amazed at the difference in such a short amount of time.  I don’t know how to get the word out, but it looks like you are quite knowledgeable in this area and maybe a blog is the way to publish an interesting observation.  Our pediatrician sent us to a specialist who wanted to run lots of tests on our child (that cost lots of money) and we were holding off on this.

I’m telling mothers that I know about this to see if it helps – many are quite concerned about the early puberty they are noticing.  This is a very scary public health concern that could be easily avoided. Best, Stephanie.

This was my reply back to Stephanie:

Dear Stephanie,

Thanks for your message; I may use it for a blog following up on my “early puberty” post last week. I am also going to do a blog later this week on the late Dr. Benjamin Spock who learned the ugly truth about meat and dairy before he died in 1998.

J. Morris Hicks, trying to do my part to spread the not-so-well-known truth about the staggering impact of our food choices -- beginning with our own health.

My question to you is “why is your child still consuming milk at home?” Just so you know; cow’s milk should not be consumed by humans. Period. Given it’s ability to cause problems in our bodies, it quite possibly should be labeled “poison.” See my Michele Obama post.

If you haven’t read The China Study, you should read it now. The author, Dr. T. Colin Campbell, wrote the foreword for my new book which is featured prominently on my website. The author also influenced Bill Clinton to give up meat and dairy. This is not just some silly fad; thanks to the internet, the truth is finally spreading regarding the hogwash we’ve been fed by our food companies and their partners at our USDA. (See my blog about Bill Clinton).

Stephanie, I hope some of this will be helpful and that you will continue to enjoy my blog. There is one more blog on this topic that you may wish to read: No cow’s milk for humans at any age…even Dr. Spock agrees
