Professional dairy slanderer Robert Cohen (the “NotMilk” guy) has finally admitted that his anti-milk scare campaign is really about selling books and turning a profit. In a recent on-line rant, Cohen describes how he was interviewed by a couple of USDA inspectors
, who were investigating a complaint lodged against him. Their conversation apparently included a discussion of whether or not it would be illegal to purposely bring mad cow disease or foot-and-mouth into the United States. Cohen has never been one to pass up an opportunity for free publicity, as the following quote from his daily column shows:
“I told the two investigators that I was going to visit Scotland in July of 2002, and that I would tiptoe through the tulips and bring Hoof and Mouth (sic) back to America and spread it around. I then asked them to immediately arrest me, hoping that the publicity would help to sell my new book. They declined to do so.” (emphasis added)
Cohen continues to spread fear about milk and other dairy products
, despite universal condemnation from the scientific community.
