$7 Milk? [View all]

$7 Milk?

Milk could go to $7 a gallon if the farm bill isn't extended. Some people think this is a bad thing.

As kids we were told that milk was the healthiest thing we could possibly consume. In school we learned about the food pyramid, which prominently featured milk and other dairy products.

Now we learn from best-selling books by Drs. Esselstyn, Campbell and Fuhrman that milk is UNHEALTHY! The fat from it causes heart disease, diabetes, stroke, erectile dysfunction, and dementia. Milk protein causes cancer.

As it turns out, the American dairy industry has been playing a big part in writing the nutritional guidelines! Who knew?

Some are calling the possibility of the bill not getting signed and milk going to $7 a gallon the “dairy cliff.” We should allow it to happen. Falling over this kind of cliff could save your life!
