Devil in the Milk: Illness, Health and the Politics of A1 and A2 MilkDevil in the Milk:
Illness, Health and the Politics of A1 and A2 Milk

by Keith Woodford

A1 milk contains Beta-casomorphin-7, or BCM7, which is stated to be a powerful opioid or narcotic.  Beta-casomorphin-7 is formed by the digestion of A1 beta-casein.  A2 milk does NOT contain A1 beta casein.

A2 milk is much more expensive when compared to the standard A1 milk.  Is it really worth the difference ?

Woodford alerts us to the potential dangers of A1 milk and the politics of the debate over it.  Beta-casomorphin-7, or BCM7, is a powerful opioid or narcotic and an oxidant.  It is formed by the digestion of a particular type of milk protein (A1 beta-casein) produced by some cows.
Milk free of A1 beta casein is known as A2 milk. All milk used to be A2 until a natural mutation affected some European cows a long time ago.
