I just read two article about
A1 milk, and I am floored. It could be the cause of Crohn's. By the way, it doesn't say that in the article, but the testing was done on rats and rabbits, animals which don't get Crohn's as far as I know. But A1 is highly suspect for causing other autoimmune diseases.
What is A1 milk? That takes a lot of explanation, so I'll just point you all to the articles. Please read both of them - the second one is more technical but has more scientific credibility. So without further ado:Milk May Endanger Your HealthA1 and A2 Milk: What is the Fuss?
If true, this would explain a lot. For one thing, it explains why people in Third World countries seldom get Crohn's (infants are mostly breast-fed, and the local cows are less likely to produce A1 milk).
What angers me most is that the problem could be easily and cheaply solved (by moving to A2 milk), as the articles both indicate. But the dairy industry doesn't even want to hear about
this (or rather, they don't want their customers to hear about
this). Ironically, hiding the problem rather than tackling it head-on increases the likelihood that eventually people will shun drinking milk as the issue gets better known.
Crohn's since 1988
