After reading the sample chapter, I am left hoping that the rest of the book was better "fact checked" by the author/editor -- the very first assertion the author makes, that humans need 180 days to double their birth weight, is incorrect (even if you allow for slight discrepancies between breastfed and bottlefed babies). It only takes about 90 days for a human to double its birthweight. (You can look up the WHO's growth charts online to check). I am in complete agreement that cow's milk is not a human food, but the campaign against dairy isn't helped by wildly inaccurate supporting data!

Woops. Here's an update. Just the other day, I heard on a morning TV program, that babies fed cow's milk formula gained weight much faster than breast-fed babies. They think feeding cow's milk formula to babies can lead to obesity, later in life. Maybe they also compared cow's milk to soy formula. I'll have to find that study.
