Ask the milkman, white with foam.

Is there something I could add to whole milk that would make it froth better without affecting it negatively in some other way?

My milk can't quite get it up when I try to froth it. The web tells me that it's protein in the milk that makes it foam. Before you tell me that I should buy my milk elsewhere if my local store sells me protein-deficient milk, that's not what I'm asking. What I want to know is if I can add something, e.g. casein, to it and fix the problem. One website, probably crackpot, says that casein promotes cancer, hence the second part of my question. I want this additive to not affect the taste or other properties of the milk negatively. Just to make it froth better.
