Doctor's Note

For an introduction to bovine casomorphin, see yesterday's video. Tomorrow I'll conclude this 3-part video series on the so-called "milk-apnea effect," with a discussion of the role this morphine-like compound may play in other conditions, including autism. Casomorphins are also mentioned in my Is Milk and Mucus A Myth? video. And as always there are also hundreds of other videos on more than a thousand subjects.

      I want to know when this is going to hit national news!!  I would love to see what the Dairy council would say.  Or will they just ignore it like all the other overwhelming negative research about their contaminated and infected, pus-filled products.

    It sounds like this is not just direct exposure from dairy formula but the mother drinking/eating dairy and transferring the casomorphin to their child and putting them at risk. 2nd hand dairy. Scary stuff.

      I can’t wrap my head around this. There’s casomorphine in human milk as well, so I don’t see the connection to bovine milk. Is it so simple that the mother consume so much casomorphine that the amount is too much for kids to handle?

        See the next video.  It distinguishes Human casomorphins from Bovine casomorphins.  The Bovine casomorphins are linked to autism whereas the Human casomorphins are not.

    Does this apply to infants fed a diary-based formula?  Is there any effect suspected on breast-fed infants whose mother is consuming dairy

    What about the MMR vaccine?? The Bovine Serum is in the vaccine? Is this the reason so many parents with children that have Autism have decided to go Cassein free?? My son has PDD. I do not give him dairy products.
