Article on beta-casein A1 from a professor of research in agriculture in New Zealand
Hi, an aggie friend of mine sent me this link (to a pdf article):
"There’s a devil in the milk, says agricultural scientist Keith Woodford, and it has little to do with
production methods. Woodford’s startling thesis, backed up by a pile of research, is that a mutation many years ago created an aberrant protein in some European cows, called A1 cows to set them aside from all other cows, which are called A2. As a result, the milk from these cows has been linked to a host of maladies, including Type 1 diabetes, autism and heart disease. Still virtually unknown in this country, the A1-A2 question is prominent enough in New Zealand, where Woodford lives and works, to have spurred public controversy and the creation of a successful company that markets only A2 milk, the a2 Corporation. For growing numbers of Americans who have noticed that milk seems to attack their systems even though they are lactose tolerant, Woodford’s work, collected in his book, Devil in the Milk, offers vital illumination.
