Hi Vicky,

Cow’s dairy is highly allergenic, meaning that it is difficult to digest and results in proteins that frequently cause allergies. “Organic” gets rid of the hormones and antibiotics in milk but does nothing to resolve the casein protein as an allergen issue.

It also still leaves the pus issue, 1.5 million pus cells per teaspoon of milk, but then who doesn’t love pus with their cereal? 

And lastly the issue of casein protein being a cancer promoter. It doesn’t cause cancer but it does feed cancer cells nicely and accelerates the growth.
