Joseph Keon, author of "Whitewash: The Disturbing Truth Behind Cow's Milk And Your Health"

 Hosted by Dr. David Naimon.

Today's guest is Joseph Keon, the author of "Whitewash: The Disturbing Truth Behind Cow's Milk And Your Health."

John Robbins, the author of Diet For A New America, says this about Whitewash in the foreword:

"I might be one of the last people you would expect to find questioning the value of dairy products for human health. Not that this is an easy question for most people. The assumption that dairy products are wonderful foods prevails throughout our culture with amazing tenacity. But in my family of origin, this assumption was held with a steadfastness that was virtually religious.
There was a reason. My father founded, owned and ran what became the world’s largest ice cream company --- Baskin-Robbins. Our house included a commercial-sized freezer with each of the 31 flavors, one for each day of the month. By the time I was 21, my father had manufactured and sold more ice cream than any human being who had ever lived on the planet. And he groomed me, his only son, to succeed him. It was his plan that I would follow in his footsteps.


So what am I doing writing a foreword for a book titled Whitewash: The Disturbing Truth About Cow’s Milk And Your Health? It turned out that I didn’t follow my father’s plan, but instead walked away from the company and the money it represented to become an advocate for a healthy and compassionate way of life. And that brings me to this marvelous book by Joseph Keon. Because if you are looking for the truth about dairy products and your health, if you are wanting to understand what scientific research has actually shown, this book is an immensely helpful resource. I consider it, in fact, the best book yet written on the subject."
