Vedic Indian Cow
An Indian vedic cow or bull is highly adapted to high temperatures and is characterized by a fatty hump, dewlap (hanging fold of loose skin on the neck) and the rounded back part where the back meets the legs. All these bodily features distinguish them immediately from the foreign breeds like Jersey, Holstein, Ayrshire, Guernsey, etc.
Indian cow’s DNA has amino acid PROLINE at location 67 out of 209 elements. This got converted into HISTIDINE due to mutation caused by migration of Indian cows to the west.
Originally, Proline (at position 67) is very firmly attached to its neighbor ISOLEUCINE (at position 66) but Histidine (after mutation) is not that firm. Consequently, it breaks easily during human digestion of milk protein and forms a casomorphin called BCM7.
BCM7 is an opioid (narcotic) which is very strong oxidant and adversely affects human body similar to other opioids of its category. The milk containing BCM7 is termed as A1 milk (i.e. amino acid histidine at position 67) while the milk without BCM7 is called A2 milk (i.e. amino acid proline at position 67).
The potential release of BCM7 is about 0.4 grams per litre of milk assuming that there are 12 gm of ß-casein per litre.
Keith Woodford, Professor of Farm Management and Agribusiness at Lincoln University in New Zealand brings together the evidence published in more than 100 scientific papers, examines both the population studies and the research undertaken with animals and humans, and explains the scientific cause behind diseases and health problems due to digestion of milk from cows in New Zealand, Australia and many other western countries.
Fortunately, Indian cow milk DOES NOT contain BCM7 and hence is of type A2.
Modern research in America has also revealed the fact that the milk (or products) from a correctly fed Indian breed cow doesn’t cause any human disease.
