What do you eat cereal with etc? Well I mix mine with my herb tea. Sure I know it sounds wack...but I add in honey, and quite frankly, for me its fine.

A question for all those who really gulp down WHOLE MILK: Would you describe yourselves as fat?
A curious mind wants to know.
....MAP is a bacterium that infects cows, sheep, goats and other mammals. In meat and dairy animals, it’s well established (my emphasis, ed.) that MAP causes Johne’s disease, a diarrhea and wasting disease like Crohn’s. Roughly 20% of meat and dairy herds in the U.S. are estimated to be infected with MAP. Even animals raised to strict organic standards may have Johne’s disease. The USDA does not require slaughterhouses to inspect the gastrointestinal systems of meat animals, and Johne’s testing is not routine or mandatory.
It could be argued that small farmers using organic methods might be somewhat less likely to have animals with Johne’s disease, because they would be more intimately aware of each animal than a large agribusiness farm. However, most ruminants are not symptomatic before age two, so many would be slaughtered before symptoms develop.
Drinking milk from cows infected with Johne's disease is how people are exposed to para-tuberculosis. Based on DNA fingerprinting techniques, there are two strains of MAP: one that affects cattle, and one that affects goats and sheep.
All human isolates so far have been of bovine origin, implicating milk. Milk is the "logical" focus of exposure because cows with Johne's disease secrete para*TB abundantly in their milk. Even sub-clinical cows--those that are infected but appear perfectly normal--shed para*TB bacteria into their milk.
Although these bacteria are found free-floating in milk, their transmission may be facilitated by their presence inside pus cells. This is a particular problem in the U.S., as we have the highest permitted upper limit of milk pus cell concentration in the world--almost twice the international standard of allowable pus cells. By US federal law, Grade A milk is allowed to have over a drop of pus per glass of milk. These pus cells may facilitate the transmission of para*TB.
"Our findings raise the possibility that a novel group of E. coli contains opportunistic pathogens that may be causally related to chronic intestinal inflammation in susceptible individuals," said Kenneth Simpson, professor of small animal medicine at the College of Veterinary Medicine and the paper's senior author. "They suggest that an integrated approach that considers an individual's mucosa-associated flora in addition to disease phenotype and genotype may improve outcome," he said.

And your final point Dr. is what? This?:
Add the Bovine Growth Hormone into the mix and you have the recipe for a race of super-giants bent on destruction of the pathetic human race. Ah Okay...
