Dr. Virgil Hulse discusses his concerns about cow’s milk being infected with the Bovine leukemia and AIDS viruses. The drinking of this milk by children, he says, is one of the “greatest public health threats of our century.” He also adds that many dead, diseased dairy cattle are sent to rendering plants where they are ground up and used in feed for other cows. “We’re making cannibals out of cows who are meant to eat alfalfa. It’s just not common sense,” said Dr. Hulse. In this 1993 interview, Dr. Hulse also discusses issues around pasteurization vs. raw milk, fat-free milk, salmonella, E coli, and Mad Cow disease. Dr. Hulse is a former California dairy inspector and has two masters’ degrees in public health: milk and food technology, and epidemiology of cancer.
