DAIRY FOOD ADDICTION


GETTING LOST WITH DRUGS

Heroin users "get lost" after injecting chemically processed poppy juice into their veins. Homer reported that Ulysses "got lost" during his odyssey after being lured into a gentle sleep caused by opiates. When Dorothy laid down in a poppy field in the Wizard of Oz, she fell into a very deep sleep. She followed a yellow brick road into a sleepy world of marmalade skies, cellophane flowers and marshmallow pies.

Opiates are narcotics, and they produce intense feelings of pleasure followed by a calm drowsy feeling. Opiates are addictive. Smokers of opiated hashish gently lose their way into narcotically-induced dreamlike states (no, not Colorodo or Vermont). The most wholesome cow's milk from organically raised bovines naturally contains a powerful opiate in the morphine family called casomorphin.

Concentrated milk products (cheese, ice cream, and milk chocolate) contain concentrated quantities of these addictive narcotics. Now, you too can "get lost" by consuming America's most delicious legal opiate, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Hershey Foods is about to launch a new advertising campaign giving their best-selling bite-sized snack a new slogan: "Get Lost in a Reese's" Hersehy's will spend $10 million to promote their chocolate high to children.

Who is their target group? Hershey's explains: "Young males are among the biggest eaters of candy, and Reese's is no exception." One ad portrays a growling dog that bites a young man in the leg. The boy feels no pain because he is munching on a Reese's. A second ad shows a kid whose pants get caught in an escalator, oblivious to the fact that he is about to be stripped to his underwear.

What causes the drug-induced chocolate "high?" Could it be morphine, an opiate? Do chocolate manufacturers know that their product contains drugs? Let's examine milk chocolate. The three major ingredients of milk chocolate are, in order of abundance, sugar, milk, and chocolate. Florida researcher, Robert Cade, M.D., has identified a milk protein, casomorphin, as the probable cause of attention deficit disorder.

Dr. Cade found Beta-casomorphin-7 in high concentrations in the blood and urine of patients with either schizophrenia or autism. Eighty percent of cow's milk protein is casein. After eating milk chocolate, casein breaks down in the stomach to produce a peptide opiate, casomorphine, "exorphins appear to produce...lack of awareness of events, anti-social behavior, and decreased verbal skills."

Many of these behaviors are similar to those noted on chronic heroin addiction. Studies by Karl Riechelt indicate a very strong association between certain autistic behaviors and ingestion of dairy..." Government statistics suggest that America is home to 64 million nicotine addicts (cigarette smokers), 18 million alcoholics, 12 million marijuana smokers, and 2.3 million opiate and cocaine users.

Opiates in chocolate have not yet made their top ten drug list, but make no mistake about it, folks. Drugs work, and milk is physiologically addictive. Nature's way is to include chemical messengers that make nursing pleasurable. That same mechanism is what also makes weaning so difficult.

Most American adults have never been weaned from the addictive effects of milk. Get lost with milk chocolate? Hersehy's relies upon addicted children to generate increased candy sales. So, "Get lost" with milk chocolate and satisfy a physiological addiction to casomorphin. Are you a chocolate junkie? Get Lost with Reeses!
