Today is my birthday—a good day for a post about mother’s milk.
Over the weekend, I posted a video by Dr. Walter J. Veith entitled “Sitting on a Time Bomb.” Since then, I have discovered another one of his educational videos. It is entitled “Udderly Amazing” and features 80 minutes worth of non-stop scientific information about why humans should NEVER drink any cow’s milk and shouldn’t drink any milk at all after weaning.
Dr. Veith was educated in South Africa and received his PhD in Zoology in 1978. You can view his complete bio by clicking here, but here is just a snippet to give you the idea of his educational background.
Since meeting this man via video (thanks to Leo Schwaiger) over the weekend, I have been quite impressed with his extensive documentation of facts, his relaxed style, his presentation skills and his sense of humor. In the video featured here today, he made some key points early in his presentation.
The mother’s milk of humans contains the lowest percentage of protein of all 5500 mammals on the planet. He presented a chart showing the protein content in mg./liter for humans, horses, cows, goats, dogs, cats and rats. Alongside that data, he showed the number of days required for each of those mammals to double their weight after consuming only their mother’s milk.
Beginning with humans, and continuing through all of the seven other animals—to rats, the number of days went from 120—60—47—19—8—7—4.5 for the rats. The human milk contains 1.2 mg/liter of protein while the rat’s milk contains ten times as much—11.8 mg./liter—enough to double the infant’s birth-weight in less than five days.
Hence, Dr. Veith’s comments on the video, “If it’s protein maximization that we’re seeking, we should be drinking rats milk—not cow’s milk.” Don’t have time to watch this video right now? You might want to save it for the weekend:
