Book Review: “NO MILK” by Daniel A. Twogood

Comments

Milk and other allergens and additives in our food can cause neck pain, back pain, and headaches. As shown by a case study with 3,000 patients.

Conclusion

Allergens and poisons can be the cause of many chronic diseases. If you have a health condition and your doctor/practitioner has been unable to determine its cause, try to experiment with your diet to identify any potential allergens. It is also important to watch for any additives that your body might react to.

According to the author, almost all chronic neck pain, back pain, and headaches can be cured by eliminating casein (a milk protein and potential allergen) and monosodium glutamate (a food additive often found in convenience food and a possible toxin) from your diet. He lists out further harmful food ingredients such as gluten, soy, corn or alkaloids from solanaceae (nightshades).

The author and I (as a physician) are aware of the fact that the amount of scientific evidence at 3'000 cases is not very large to confirm the claims laid down in this book. The reasons for this are manifold; it is a complex subject that requires interdisciplinary collaboration with physiologists, biochemists, nutritionists, and other medical experts. And the very powerful and influential dairy lobby makes it difficult to gain the necessary funding and is the reason for the lack of clear evidence-based findings.

It is also likely that many patients went to see Dr. Daniel A. Twogood only after other methods were of no avail. This explains the extremely high cure rate.

The author does not address all of the problems concerning milk, but instead focuses only on the allergens.
