The milk of our second mother, Indian cow or ‘Gomatha’ (Most liked Post)

        In one of my posts (How cow is our mother can bull be our father), I explained why cow is called ‘Gomatha’ or mother cow in Indian culture. Along with calling mother (as we have milk of the cow), it is also important to understand why only Indian cow milk and not any other cow milk.
        Recently I came across an idea of A1 and A2 type of milk. Milk generally has three parts: Fats, Whey and milk solids. The milk solid part is composed of many different proteins, which have their own names, lactose, and other sugars. We are interested in protein part of the solid. One of these proteins is called casein, of which there are many different types, but the one casein we are interested is the predominant protein called beta- caseinIn fact, there is only one difference between A1 & A2 milk. The difference in A1 and A2 beta-casein is the amino acid histidine rather than proline at position 67. The issues relate to a peptide called beta-casomorphin-7 (BCM7). This peptide is released on digestion from A1 beta-casein. BCM7 is not released on digestion from A2 beta-casein. Many effects on health are observed due to BCM7. The list includes but not limited to Type 1 diabetes, heart diseases, slower child development, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), autism, allergies, and indigestion.
Human milk, goat milk, sheep milk and other species are ‘A2- like’ with proline at the equivalent position. Even Indian cows are A2- like therefore, Indian cows produce mother like milk. Here is another reason to call Indian cows ‘Gomatha’. Some other organic cows also produce A2 like milk but none of the hybrid cows that are popular today produces it.
It is even said that pasteurization process has its own side effects. Therefore, it is always better to drink Raw A2 milk. This is how traditionally Indians used to consume milk.
        We may or may not consume Indian cow milk due to availability and it is important to be aware of facts. This is one more example of blindly following western world and paying price for it. We all shave consume Indian cow milk and milk products as far as possible.

Here is a detailed paper from Mr. Woodford. You may also refer a book ‘The Devil in the milk’ by Dr. Thomas Cowan.
