Milk Industry Admits That Milk Made Japanese Kids Grow Taller -
And Brags About It!
by Robert Cohen
I came across an editorial while skimming through old issues of
Hoard's Dairyman, the "National Dairy Farm Magazine." In
their 10/26/63 editorial, Hoard's was proud of this factoid:
TALLER WITH MILK
average height of 15-year-old boys in Japan has jumped 3 1/2 inches
since World War II. According to the Christian Science Monitor,
clothing and school equipment manufacturers are faced with the
problem of revising size standards to keep pace with the sprouting
Talk about politically
incorrect! I do not know what is the viler act, verbal insult upon
the Japanese race, or the arrogance of what follows. Yes, it gets
worse. Hoard's continues:
credited as being the primary cause of today's Japanese being
taller and broader. According to the 'Monitor,' milk is sweeping
Japan. It is readily available in railway stations, in offices,
and it seems more common for young people to drink milk for refreshment
than carbonated beverages. Consumption is expected to rise 500
percent within 10 years."
OK, so America's
dairy industry admitted that the enormous growth spurt was due to
cow's milk consumption, and they did so without mentioning the "H"
word, hormones. Milk contains powerful growth hormones. These
steroid and protein hormones obviously work. Japan is the largest
living laboratory study, an example of how an entire society changed
in only 18 years.
Is taller better?
Whether or not you believe in creationist theory or evolutionary
theory, you should agree that the original "plan" is best. Humans
were either designed with, or developed, just the right skeletal
system to hold a body's organs. When you stretch the girders you
compromise the structure. That is exactly what man has done, with
the help of the dairy industry. And dairy products help make these
bigger bones weaker because of its acidifying nature. Is it any
wonder that osteoporosis plagues milk-drinking nations?
The dairy industry
should take responsibility for bringing increased cancer, osteoporosis,
cardiovascular disease, asthma, and diabetes rates to a population
of Asians who were once the model of good health. With milk consumption,
came American-style diseases.
The May 1, 2015 issue of Archives of Disease
in Childhood includes a study performed at the Department
of Pediatric Endocrinology at the University of Virginia in
which researchers evaluated the link between the volume of
hormone-rich cow's milk consumed by 8,950 four and five year
olds, and height.
One factor the scientists assumed is that taller is better;
an attitude representing extreme experimental bias.
Scientists found that children who drank greater than four
servings of milk per day attained an increase of 1 cm in additional
height when compared to children drinking less than one portion
of milk each day. The growth hormones in milk made a significant
experimental difference. Growth hormones work to change normal
genetically programmed growth into hormonally increased unnatural
The researchers concluded:
"In a cohort of children at age 4 years,
the volume of milk consumed was associated with higher weight
status and taller stature, while at 5 years, higher milk
consumption continued to be associated with taller stature.
This study supports current American Academy of Pediatrics
recommendations that pre-school children consume two milk
In other words, the American Academy of
Pediatrics ignorantly supports biologically-induced chemical
means to make a child taller than his original genetics call
for, even if there are correlations between this practice
and conditions of ill health.

The Breast Cancer - Dairy Consumption
by Robert Cohen
and Don Bennett, DAS
Many of us are
aware of the correlation between early onset of menstruation and
the higher risk of breast cancer, but most are unaware of the reason
why. Earlier than normal puberty is not the cause of the higher
risk of breast cancer. The higher risk of breast cancer is caused
by the cause of the earlier than normal puberty, which is primarily
In Japan, every
year since 1946 tens of thousands of persons are interviewed and
their diets carefully analyzed along with their weights and heights
and other factors such as cancer rates and age of puberty (the last
measured by the onset of menstruation in young girls). This study
includes detailed personal interviews and is well respected and
accepted by scientists. In 1975, 21,707 persons from 6,093 households
were included in the sampling. The results of the study were published
in a respected scientific journal, PREVENTIVE MEDICINE (Yasuo Kagawa,
Department of Biochemistry, Jichi Medical School, Japan, 7, 205-217,

devastated by losing a war and was occupied by American troops.
Americanization included dietary changes. Milk and dairy products,
relatively unknown to Japan, were becoming a significant part of
the Japanese diet. According to this study, the per-capita yearly
dietary intake of dairy products in 1950 was only 5.5 pounds. Twenty-five
years later the average Japanese ate 117.4 pounds of milk and dairy
products. The consumption of milk and dairy products (containing
powerful growth hormones) represented the biggest dietary change
for the Japanese people, according to table #1 on page 206 of that
Tables 7 and
8 are even more revealing. While milk and dairy consumption increased
by twenty-one times, from 1950 to 1975, cerebral vascular disease
(strokes) increased 38 percent. Heart disease increased 35 percent,
breast cancer rates increased 77 percent. Colon cancer increased
to young girls and the impact of milk consumption on puberty is
even more dramatic. In 1950 the average twelve-year old girl was
4'6" tall and weighed 71 pounds. By 1975 the average Japanese
girl, after guzzling a daily diet of milk and dairy products containing
59 different bioactive hormones, had an increase of average height
of 4 1/2 inches, and the average weight increased 19 pounds. In
1950 the average Japanese girl had her first menstrual cycle at
the age of 15.2 years. Twenty five years later, after a daily intake
of estrogen and progesterone from milk, the average Japanese girl
was ovulating at the age of 12.2 years, three years younger. No
wonder breast cancer rates increased 77 percent!
had such a dramatic dietary change been seen in such a unique population
study. These very telling facts remained buried in this 1978 scientific
I have it on
good authority that one of the reasons the American Dairy Board
spends so much money on advertising is not because people need to
be reminded that milk and milk products exist, it's done so that
news such as the above never becomes public. Money buys influence;
in this case, suppression of damaging information for the purposes
of protecting an industry's financial bottom line. If you don't
like being taken advantage of for the sake of profit at the expense
of your health, educate yourself.
