Got (Whole) Milk?

Decades of government warnings, regulations and bans against drinking whole milk have been in error.

“What we have learned over the last decade is that certain foods that are high in fat seem to be beneficial,” a University of Texas epidemiologist has concluded.

In fact government efforts to steer people away from these choices forces them to miss out on “a huge opportunity for the prevention of disease,” said Marcia Otto, according to The Washington Post.

Making this revelation even more unseemly?  The extent to which government has eliminated whole milk consumption amongst children – who don’t need to cut calories but do need to develop strong immune systems.

Government doesn’t care, though.

“Replace whole milk and full-fat milk products with fat-free or low-fat choices,” the latest federal guidelines insist.


The libertarian-leaning Cato Institute said this latest public health failure was the continuation of a “familiar pattern.”

“Previous advice from Washington about the supposed hazards of eggs and other cholesterol-laden foods, the advantages of replacing butter and other animal fats with trans fats, and the gains to be made from switching from regular to diet soda, have all had to be re-evaluated and sometimes reversed in later years,” Walter Olson wrote.  “And yet some in the public health establishment – including a few who are quoted in (the) Post article – still aspire to use the power of government to coerce changes in citizens’ diet.  They seem to imagine that with people like themselves in charge, next time will be different.”

Sort of like the whole “Mo Money” argument …

If we just spend a little bit more, everything will be fine!

Whole milk, lard, butter… it’s all better for you as long as you eat a healthy diet. Unlike the 75% fat fucks in this country who can’t order a meal without the word “super-size”.

Rocky Verdad October 7, 2015 at 4:00 pm

I remember as a little boy, we got a McDonalds in town, and your choices were hamburger, cheeseburger, the little fillet of fish – and only one size fries – the little white bag. Now you get a double-quarter pounder (i.e. a half-pounder) with cheese alone is 800 calories, and box of fries. And why call a large coke could float a whale.

Apparently most people are too stupid to figure this out for themselves. Which is why the fat-ass rate has skyrocketed in this country. Go back a generation and look at pictures, one out of a group of 20-30 was fat, now it’s more like 75%. I was on vacation recently and walked into a Walmart store and was actually repulsed at the land whales that I saw in that store.

RAkkasan October 7, 2015 at 5:07 pm

Go back a generation before that and a large percentage of draftees in WWII were rejected for being undernourished/too thin–and not enough teeth.

Rocky Verdad October 7, 2015 at 6:12 pm

I have my father’s WWII id – he weighted 125 pounds entering the service. Christ – I didn’t weight that after I turned 12. Of course, I have a theory that cereal made us bigger as a country (not fat – just bigger). I mean come on – how many of us came home from school and sucked down two or three bowls of Michigan’s finest cereals – with – ready for it ——- whole milk.

Squishy123 October 7, 2015 at 6:55 pm

So we’ve gone from one extreme to the next, bypassing the healthy weight period somewhere around 1950-1980.

Back when a “mushroom top” was called a “spare tire”, and neither was/is sexy on a girl.

RogueElephant October 8, 2015 at 8:22 am

I don’t know how true it is but a historian friend told me that, during the War for Southern Independence , perspective soldiers were required to have two teeth that aligned so as to bite the end off the powder charge for the musket.

Rocky Verdad October 7, 2015 at 6:10 pm

Try taking kids to Disneyworld. Remember the stroller parking areas? Now they have them for the little fat-mobiles people rent. And those rides that fit four to six people across – like Pirates – well now only three fit across (on a good day) and the water is about coming over the sides. They didn’t get rid of 20,000 Leagues under the Sea to upgrade. They got rid of it because most fat ass Americans can’t fit in the little fake subs anymore. And they get out of the rides you think they get a hot dog or a banana – hell no – they get a freakin’ turkey leg off some beast of a turkey. Leg’s bigger than on a small kid. And wash it down with a 32-oz Coke. And don’t even get me started on funnel cake.

Healthy diet? Well, I guess that leaves out most of the folks in the heart attack and stroke zone in the U.S.(that would be in a SW sweep from Baltimore to Texas) See CDC epidemiological maps. How about a bacon flavored lard and tomato sandwich for lunch, with a side of green beans or collards cooked with bacon flavored lard and TONS of salt. Yum! It’s culture! It’s love!

If you consider this a successful blog you either a) don’t get out much (i.e. live in a small bubble), or 2) are on Wil’s payroll

Will gets plenty of people clicking and commenting.

SCPTSD hasn’t been updated in almost a year and barely got any traffic.

Rocky Verdad October 7, 2015 at 6:14 pm

SCPTSD should have been on the list of failed dams – because it was dam failure.

But…but…but…it’s SCIENCE! It can NEVER be wrong…or evolve…or change…or be influenced by governmental interference…

Rakkasan October 7, 2015 at 4:46 pm

Yeah Mike. It started in the 50s (margarine is better. Crisco is better; processed cheese). Let me see. What administration ran the 50s in the US? Rhymes with Mike. And who had the products that were being substituted for lard, butter, ? Do the letters ADM mean anything to you? How about any corporation included in what we call Big Ag (they’re cousins with Big Pharma). The 50s were a great time in America. Think Mad Men. Think Mike Wallace doing commercials for Lucky Strike saying, “They’re good for you”. So, it is hardly new and it ain’t just the gubmint. Let’s make sure we add corporate America and Madison Avenue

Mike at the Beach October 7, 2015 at 5:12 pm

Absolutely…no argument from me on your point. I just didn’t get that far down that road. Scientists aren’t magic, they’re people. They can be right; they can be wrong; they can be bought by corporate interests; they can get swept up in political fervor; they can stand their ideological ground. No particular party or side is wholly pure here…

Too often, scientists are lemings. Only one respected scientist said that bacteria could not survive in the stomach. Stomach viruses yes, but not bacteria.

For decades it was accepted that stomach ulcers were caused by stress. Then doctors, while treating for another health issue descovered that simple antibiotics cures most stomach ulcers.

Terry October 8, 2015 at 12:07 pm

Typical Republican attitude. What the hell do you know about science? Absolutely nothing. You go out and find an instance were scientists were wrong and hold that up as important, ignoring the thousands of times they were right. I swear you brain dead wingnuts will be the death of us all.

Bible Thumper October 8, 2015 at 12:27 pm

Oh no! I support science.
Scientists define a fetus as “an unborn offspring of a mammal, in particular an unborn human baby more than eight weeks after conception”.

If scientists define a fetus as a human baby, that’s good enough for me and they deserve the protection of the law and Constitution, just like a born human baby.

SCBlues October 8, 2015 at 1:08 pm

Milk to global warming to fetuses – makes sense to me . . .

Mark October 8, 2015 at 12:10 pm

Independent scientists (typically at universities and colleges) are rarely influenced by governmental interference and they are right far more than they are wrong. Corporate scientist are influenced by the people who hired them to obtain a specific result. If you listened only to the scientist working for Philip Morris, you would have believed through the 1960s and into the 1970s that there was no proof of a link between smoking and cancer or heart disease. If you listened to independent scientist you would have know about that connection twenty years earlier. In fact if it were not for tobacco law suits we would probably never have found out the tobacco industry knew in the late 1940s their product was causing health problems and covered it up.

What I think is crazy, is the eyes closed, hands over their ears mentality that seems to pervade in the Republican party. You have to look at the best evidence you have and yet you guys choose to trust industry over independent scientist as to what the best evidence is. You choose to make fun of the people telling you there is a problem and you should do something about it, because its not what you want to hear. You guys would have been the people who died of emphysema in the 1970s swearing it had nothing to do with their 3 pack a day cigarette habit.

Rocky Verdad October 7, 2015 at 4:23 pm

Actually, given the great marketing of Milk in the 1990s, what we need here is a pic of a nice hottie in tight cloths – recalling that – Milk!!! I does a body good!!!!
