Summary:

Whitewash is truly a fabulous source of information for those who have an open mind about dairy-free living, or who are concerned about the dairy industry.

Alisa Fleming ~ Dr. Joseph Keon’s controversial book, Whitewash, is a must read for anyone who is concerned about their health or is still sitting on the dairy fence. It may just tip you into a milk-free diet, or strengthen your willpower if you’re struggling with dairy-free living.

Dairy has been at the core of my research and writing for years, but I still devoured several new morsels of information from Whitewash. Dr. Keon discusses the pesticides and other chemicals found in commercial cow’s milk; links between dairy consumption and various conditions across a broad spectrum, from infertility to Parkinson’s disease; the concerns with too much calcium; and so much more.

Some may argue that dairy-free publications often reference The China Study, which has more recently been called into question by some health researchers. But regardless of whether the entirety of The China Study remains valid, the sources for Whitewash go much, much deeper. Dr. Keon cites several hundred published papers, clinical studies, and physician-led research. In Whitewash, he translates those medical findings into “plain English,” and structures it all into an easy-to-read format.

Whitewash: The Disturbing Truth about Cow's Milk and Your HealthYou might still disagree with some of the assertions in Whitewash. But, with so much information packed in there, you’re bound to learn some useful tidbits, and at the very least, ask questions.

As I’ve learned over the years, the mere words, “no thank you, I don’t eat dairy” when offered a cheese sampler, can send many people on the defensive. “You don’t eat dairy? How could you live without cheese? I could never do that!” As if I’ve somehow implied that they should forgo the Muenster, too. With this in mind, I think all of the incredible information in Whitewash might be met with resistance by the casual reader.

In other words, if you are reading this website, then you will probably glean some fantastic knowledge from Whitewash, but I wouldn’t plan on gifting it to your entire family on a dairy farm in Wisconsin. Okay, maybe the ones who’ve thoughtfully inquired about dairy-free living.

    How valid is the information about the Canadian dairy industry? Most of what I read on the web and in books is about the state of affairs in the US and I have a hard time making convincing arguments based on that fact alone (the excuse is “well that’s true in the US, but not HERE!”)

    Lisa, I just saw this in your email:

    As I’ve learned over the years, the mere words, “no thank you, I don’t eat dairy” when offered a cheese sampler, can send many people on the defensive. “You don’t eat dairy? How could you live without cheese? I could never do that!” As if I’ve somehow implied that they should forgo the Muenster, too.

    What’s the difference between regular cheese and Muenster?
