BCM7 is a 7 amino acid peptide that is resistant to degradation. To break this molecule down it requires very strong immune responses. This immune response often takes place in the gut and causes digestive distress and leaky gut syndrome. The most susceptible individuals are those who already have digestive problems and infants who naturally have increased intestinal permeability. Hence milk from exotic cows like HF (which produces only A1 milk), jersey (taurine type) and their crosses with native cow (which produces mixture of more A1 and less A2 milk) is hazardous for humans.
A1 Milk is Toxic to Health- Devil in the Milk Cow milk has always been a part of the Indian diet. Since time immemorial its piritual and nutritional values have been known to our ancestors. Our ancient Ayurvedic texts describe the Indian cow-milk as possessing a sweet taste, cool, highly nutritive, tonic
for our vital organs, easily digestible, and its consumption promotes immunity and longevity. With the inception of technology, commercialization and adaptation to western methods, the modern Indians and our government have taken up artificial insemination and cross-breeding with exotic (foreign) BREEDS. The consequent ill- effects are quite evident. Originally cows all over the world produced milk containing the A2 type of beta-casein protein.
All proteins are long chains of amino acids and beta casein is a chain of 229 amino acids in length. Cows that produce this protein in their milk with a proline (a specific amino acid)
at number 67 are called A2 cows, i.e. The original breeds of cows. Around 5,000 yearsago, a mutation occurred in this proline amino acid, converting it to histidine (a different
type of amino acid). Cows that have this mutated beta casein protein are called A1 cows. Proline has a strong bond to a small protein called BCM7 and therefore stops the BCM7 from getting into milk. So essentially, no BCM7 is found in the urine, blood or gastro-intestinal tracts of the original A2 cows. Histidine, the mutated protein, does not have a
strong bond to hold on to BCM7. Hence, on consumption of the A1 milk, this protein
BCM7 gets into the gastro-intestinal tract of animals and humans. In the case of the A2 beta-casein milk, the milk proteins are broken down into peptides, which in turn are
broken down into amino acids. This type of milk is easily digestible. While in the case of the A1 beta-casein milk, the peptides cannot be broken down into amino acids, and so,
are indigestible. These A1 beta-casein protein fragments that enter the bloodstream through leakages in the guts cause serious ailments, mentioned above. BCM7 has been
shown to cause neurological impairment in animals and to the people exposed to it, especially bringing on autistic and schizophrenic changes. BCM7 also interferes with the
immune response system. The injection of BCM7 in animal models has been shown to provoke type 1 diabetes.
” It has been conclusively proved that consumption of the A1 beta-casein milk leads to milk intolerance together with an additional range of auto-immune diseases and hence, it has been called ‘the devil in the milk’. Now that we have seen the ill-effects of A1 milk, we need to find a solution to it. The remedy therefore to this is cow’s pure milk which falls under the A2 category.”
