hemoglobin loss, childhood diabetes, heart disease, atherosclerosis,

arthritis, kidney stones, mood swings, depression, irritability,


Townsend Medical Letter, May, 1995

cow milk proteins before one month of age.  About 50-70% experienced

rashes or other skin symptoms, 50-60 percent gastrointestinal symptoms,

and 20-30 percent respiratory symptoms. The recommended therapy is to

avoid cow's milk."

believes are caused by milk."

New York Times Magazine Section, Sunday, December 24, 2000




"Rheumatoid arthritis is more severe than osteoarthritis, is most common

in the hands and feet, and is characterized by swelling of joints.

Since this type of joint pain can be a symptom of a food allergy,

most common food allergen, are one likely candidate as a contributing

causative factor."

Vegetarian and Vegan Nutrition by George Eisman, M.A., M.Sc., R.D.

"Exposure to sunlight provides most humans with their vitamin D


Journal of Nutrition 1996;126(4 Suppl)

toxic in overdose."

blood of male patients with heart disease."

"Bovine milk xanthene oxidase (BMXO) may be absorbed and may enter the

sebaceous glands are stimulated by androgens to varying degrees and

support the theory of an end-organ response in acne."

British Journal of Dermatology, 1998 Jul, 139:1


"We studied the effects of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth

factors (IGFs), alone and with androgen, on sebaceous epithelial cell

growth...IGF-I was the  most potent stimulus of DNA synthesis.  These

data are consistent with the concept that increases in GH and IGF

production contribute in complementary ways to the increase in sebum

production during puberty."

Endocrinology, 1999 Sep, 140:9, 4089-94
