Whitewash: The Disturbing Truth About Cow's Milk and Your Health
North Americans are some of the least healthy people on Earth. Despite advanced medical care and one of the highest standards of living in the world, one in three Americans will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, and 50 percent of US children are overweight.
This crisis in personal health is largely the result of chronically poor dietary and lifestyle choices. In Whitewash, nutritionist Dr. Joseph Keon unveils how North Americans unwittingly sabotage their health every day by drinking milk, and he shows that our obsession with calcium is unwarranted.
Citing scientific literature, Whitewash builds an unassailable case that not only is milk unnecessary for human health, its inclusion in the diet may increase the risk of serious diseases including:

Prostate, breast, and ovarian cancers
Vascular disease
Crohn's disease
Many of America's dairy herds contain sick and immunocompromised animals whose tainted milk regularly makes it to market. Cow's milk is also a sink for environmental contaminants and has been found to contain traces of pesticides, dioxins, PCBs, and rocket fuel.

Whitewash offers a completely fresh, candid, and comprehensively documented look behind dairy's deceptively green pastures and gives readers a hopeful picture of life after milk.

Joseph Keon, PhD, has been a wellness consultant and nutrition and fitness expert for over twenty-five years. He is considered a leading authority on public health and has written three books, including Whole Health: The Guide to Wellness of Body and Mind and The Truth About Breast Cancer: A Seven-Step Prevention Plan.

Dewitt Sharp House Circa 1920 - Got Paint? :)
Dewitt Sharp House Circa 1920 - Got Paint? :)
~UPDATED 03/22/2011~ Some info has been tweaked. ~ Click on pictures to view larger sizes. :) From the LaFayette Sun Newspaper, Dec. 28, 1896: Kemps Xroads - "Mr. D. C. Sharp has about completed his new residence." (Picture, above) Harvey Sharp, Dewitt's grandson, in front of the house, which needed a good paint job. The original whitewash had worn after 25 years of faithful service. This home, build by hand by Dewitt and a few other gentlemen. The wood was hand cut & milled from timber on the property. Note the Victorian spindle porch posts, which featured hand cut designs. The glass in the windows was hand blown and came from Atlanta. The brickwork in the chimney's was done by Dewitt. Clearing of the land began in 1894 to replace the home that was destroyed by a tornado in 1890 that killed his 15 year old daughter Leila. He saved his money for 2 years & it took 2 years to build. Dewitt and his 5 youngest children (2 boys & 3 girls) moved in February of 1896. I had previously though they moved in around Christmas time, but the newspaper bit above was dated Dec. 28. At the time it was built, it was quite the fine home in the area of the country it was in. There were not alot of nice or fancy homes in that day out in the country. There were still people living in log cabin houses, and most houses were simple, plain & bare coarse boards. Family and farming for a living meant more to these folk than money and fancy houses. Upon this backdrop Dewitt had plans drawn up in LaFayette for a new residence. Why did he build the house he did? Several reasons. He was a widower & divorce' as of 1891. I'm not sure if he wanted another wife, but if he did, a nice new home would make him more attractive to any prospective ladies. He never remarried. He may not have wanted another spouse. The marriage to Martha Scott ended after only 2 years. Moving on, another big reason he built the house he did was he had 3 daughters that would need somewhere for the young men to come court them. The better home you had the better quality of men would court your daughters. The Sharp family already had a good reputation in the county. I particularly love the fact the house had 7 gables, 2 in front, one on each side & 3 in the back. The small middle gable over what was probably the original back door at the end of the hall made the house look cottage-like from the back and very quaint. The double gable over the front bedroom is my favorite. I have picked out one design flaw with this house though. The multi-gabled roof made for a leaky roof, as flashing and waterproofing was limited at best. And there was no ventilation for the attic, which was substantial in itself, and in the HOT sweltering muggy summers in Chambers County, Alabama likely held heat enough to bake a chicken. Dewitt finished raising his children & about 1910, Dewitt's son Hershal & his wife Lilla moved in with him. Hershal would take care of Dewitt until he passed away. In 1934 a second tornado hit the area. I'm not sure what damage was done to the house. Dewitt & Hershal decided to buy a farm about 2 miles away. He didn't move very far to get away from the tornadoes. lol The house & land were sold out of the family & the saga of the 'new' Sharp Home Place began. The house was in use until about 2000. For the last 10 or so years it has been abandoned to the elements & used as a storehouse of sorts. I think they filled it with junk to cave the floors in so kids wouldn't play in the house. The floors in 4 rooms and the hall are caved in. Had they been saved and restored they would have made someone a gorgeous floor! The home when built, as stated, in the mid-1890's, was quite the lovely home. It featured 2 bedrooms, a parlor, a living room, a spacious receiving hall, and an indoor kitchen. The home was built with solid heart pine wood, and had beautiful hardwood flooring, tongue & groove, which was an expensive feature many of the day couldn't afford. It also featured plaster finish on the walls in the parlor and living room. The bedrooms also featured closets, something rare in those days. Houses were taxed according to how many doors a home had. It didn't matter if it was a closet or not, if it had a door it was considered a room. It was around the turn of the century when this changed. An "attached" or indoor kitchen was a new thing also in that era. Most homes had separate kitchen houses, usually attached by a dog-trot. (google it) This was done so that if the kitchen caught on fire from cooking the main house would not burn down too. Dewitt having an indoor kitchen was risky, especially since there was no fire protection out in the country. But with 3 daughters cooking it was safer for them to be in the house. In the 1890's electricity was in it's infancy, and far from the minds of country residents of Chamber County. The area didn't get

BuckarooBob's career as a nautical slumlord suffered a setback when a renter actually let chickens run through the interior of wife Kathleen's houseboat. A major renovation was called for, including the installation of a hardwood floor (reclaimed oak from high school gyms)--courtesy of McGee Salvage. A few days on my own, down on my aching knees--and weekend reinforcements were welcome. I felt like Tom Sawyer with Aunt Polly's whitewashed fence--once my helpers got the system down, they all but pushed me aside. The geometry of fitting the pieces, the satisfying 'whack' of the pneumatic stapler--it was like a Popeye cartoon, and everyone had been eating spinach. Handyman Popeye

EchoEnergy has broken through the barriers to alternative fuel sources. The impact on world markets could be staggering. But amid the euphoria, Sabrina Galloway, one of EE's top scientists, makes an alarming discovery. Sabotage of the process has unleashed an eco-disaster, and toxic waste is poisoning Florida waters and the Gulf of Mexico.
Youthful congressional chief of staff Jason Brill prepares his boss for the upcoming International Energy Summit. But he's beginning to realize the senator's support of EchoEnergy and its CEO may involve more private than public interests. Sabrina and Jason have never met. But in a world that values corporate greed over human life, they have attracted the notice of silent but powerful enemies. And these relentless shadow players leave tracks all the way from the Middle East to Pennsylvania Avenue.
