Joseph Howe, decided to perform an experiment to see whether it was the milk or some other factor causing these poor outcomes. But what started as an interest in finding out about the wider ramifications of a convicted drug trafficker became more about wanting to know if Adrian and his courageous mother Jan had their happy ending.
