THE X FACTOR MILKS IT AGAIN
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
If you’re one of the many who were forced to drink rancid third pints of milk at school then you, like me, have probably been turned off cow juice for life... and that’s not exactly what the dairy industry wants. But apparently it’s what Mr Xenophon wants.
Milk ain’t real milk anyway after being Pasteurised and homogenised. In its natural form it’s a growth food meant for calves and calves eventually wean themselves off it like all mammals do, but humans do not, they keep on keeping on with a concentrated animal fat that is not suited to humans and not needed past weaning anyway. And we wonder why we have obesity problems.
There is bugger all goodness in this baby animal food after it has been through both processes to a’hem,“make it safe to drink”. In 1864, Louis Pasteur figured if he heated it for long enough it would kill all the bugs, microbes, bacteria, and such diseases as listeriosis, typhoid fever, tuberculosis, diphtheria, and brucellosis.. Hmmm, so cow juice in the past has been responsible for some damned awful diseases? Yep, it sure has.
Unfortunately Pasteurisation, like chemo, destroys all other good stuff like enzymes and vitamin C. The much vaunted calcium benefits are false as humans cannot absorb what the calf can and calcium is in miniscule amounts anyway.
I recall making a small fortune each morning by taking a bottle of chocolate flavouring to school and charging for a tablespoonfull to hide the sour taste and smell.
Milk is an easy mark for Woollies and Coles when scratching for market share but a dollar a litre is a price the farmer must eventually wear and unlike the thieves at Coles and Woollies he has to be up at sparrow’s and down with the sun. But anyway real milk is nothing like what is sold in supermarkets.
Homogenisation is nothing more than another milk scam. The process suggests the cream is absorbed into the entire volume of the milk (homo = same). Well, if you believe that the reason there has been no cream on your milk for the past 50 years is that the wonderful processors want each member of your family to have an equal proportion of the cream, then you’ll believe anything.
Of course the processors have many other valuable uses for the cream themselves while conning you that they care about your family members’ equal shares.
Nothing can ever measure up to Mother’s breast milk. It is specifically designed, not for calves, but as a human baby’s growth food, with early doses of colostrum, a highly rich yellow substance that’s choc-a-block full of antibodies and immunoglobulins that kick start a baby’s immune system.
(The baby needs that more than ever now that they are born inexplicably in hospitals where most of the nation’s diseases reside.)
It will then decide when it has had enough of the ensuing supply of mother’s normal milk and will progress to solids... just as the baby calf does.
So WTF are we doing taking over where the calf left off? And if you have ever worked in a dairy as I have you will have seen and smelled the shit and piss environment that milk is extracted in. No wonder it needs the crap boiled out of it.
Oooops ... sorry, did that miss the milk?
My kids have never been fed on cow’s milk, only warm goat's milk, mostly directly from the goat and only if mother developed painful mastitis and only up until weaning time. Our addiction to cow’s milk is not only unhealthy it is unnatural.
So back to this stupid idea of Mr X (one of many). This is a portent of things to come in a more unruly Senate than before Turnbull’s brain snap of a double dissolution.
This free school milk nonsense will be forgotten in a day, but Senate Lefties will live on to obstruct and skew even the odd good policy emanating from the fractured Lower House of Lord Turnbull.
