Cows Are Vegan, So Why Does Milk Contain Saturated Fat?

In an 1890 letter to a colleague, Ellen White wrote:

“The meat is served reeking with fat, because it suits
the perverted taste. Both the blood and the fat of animals
are consumed as a luxury. But the Lord gave special directions
that these should not be eaten. Why? Because their use would
make a diseased current of blood in the human system. The
disregard for the Lord’s special directions has brought a
variety of difficulties and diseases upon human beings.”
(God’s Nutritionist, Quotation #436 of 500, page 145)

How are plant fats converted to saturated fat by cows? Lincoln
Lampert writes in “Modern Dairy Products,” Third Edition:

“The fats of plant origin in the cow’s diet contain
large amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids. These
fats are hydrolyzed in the cow’s rumen. The liberated
fatty acids are then converted into saturated fatty acids.”

Consumption of saturated fat does not do you or your
children any good. Pediatrician Charles Attwood, M.D.
wrote in Dr. Attwood’s Low-Fat Prescription for Kids:

“Dietary fat during childhood may be more life-threatening
than was originally suspected… Overweight children are
usually the victims of the dietary habits of the adult
members of the family…Reducing dietary fat to levels
necessary to the control of cholesterol cannot be achieved
if a child drinks whole milk or eats cheese.”
