More about Type-1 Diabetes and Cow's Milk:
For quite some time the link between juvenile onset diabetes (type 1) and cow’s milk consumption has been noted in the scientific literature. You can view 12 such references on our page on Cow Milk. In genetically susceptible individuals the consumption of cow’s milk may trigger an autoimmune destruction of the beta cells in the pancreas which produce insulin. A new study, published in the journal Archives of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, has shed light on a possible new mechanism behind this connection.

Cow's milk and other early nutritional influences
There is evidence dating back to the 1980s that prolonged breast-feeding offers modest protection against later development of type 1 diabetes. This could mean either that breast milk is protective or that constituents of cow's milk products or other factors in infant feeds might in some way predispose to diabetes. The focus on cow's milk was supported by animal studies in which diabetes-prone rodents fed with hydrolysed milk (hydrolysis disrupts its constituent proteins) had a lower risk of diabetes. These observations prompted a major intervention study called TRIGR in which neonates have been randomized to standard or modified feeds upon weaning. The trial has completed recruitment, and has reported lower levels of diabetes-related autoantibodies in children who avoided cow's milk, but it has yet to be seen whether they will have a lower rate of diabetes.
All diabetics have a common fluke parasite, Eurytrema pancreaticum, the pancreatic fluke of cattle, in their own pancreas. It seems likely that we get it from cattle, repeatedly, by eating their meat or dairy products in a raw state. It is not hard to kill with a zapper but because of its infective stages in our food supply we can immediately be reinfected.
Eurytrema will not settle and multiply in our pancreas without the presence of wood alcohol (methanol). Methanol pollution pervades our food supply -- it is found in processed food including bottled water, artificial sweetener, soda pop, baby formula and powdered drinks of all kinds including health food varieties. I presume wood alcohol is used to wash equipment used in manufacturing. If your child has diabetes, use nothing out of a can, package or bottle except regular milk, and no processed foods.
By killing this parasite and removing wood alcohol from the diet, the need for insulin can be cut in half in three weeks (or sooner!).
Be vigilant with your blood sugar checks. The pancreas with its tiny islets that produce insulin recovers very quickly. Even if 90% of them were destroyed, requiring daily insulin shots, half of them can recover or regenerate so insulin is no longer necessary. The insulin shot itself may be polluted with wood alcohol (this is an especially cruel irony -- the treatment itself is worsening the condition). Test it yourself, using the wood alcohol in automotive fluids (windshield washer) or from a a pint store, as a test substance. Try different brands of insulin until you find one that is free of methanol.
