About avoiding milk products produced by non-devotees

While I agree that as devotees, we should not support the non-devotee milk industry due to the eventual and inevitable slaughter of every single cow, calf and bull, I have to call into question a very interesting claim made by the author:

"... please do not take too much [milk], because it increases the mode of passion and makes one lustful."

I've never heard this about milk specifically and I'm wondering if the author can support this statement of his with scripture. Or, perhaps the author is basing his claim on the use of the term, "too much" which is never in the mode of goodness regardless of the quality of the food it is attached to.

Your Servant,
