It’s a fact that milk is bad for you (Paul Mulsine’s column March 17: “Scientists Make it official: beer better than milk”) unless you happen to be an infant who is drinking the milk of a same-species mother.

Cows’ milk is a bad food for humans, but it’s a good commodity for the national dairy industry and its government-backed co-conspirators.

Facts speak louder than lies – except in a society such as ours, where power and greed have become more important than truth.
