Prostate Cancer and Breast Cancer have this in common:
There are hundreds of millions of different proteins in
nature, and only one hormone that is identical between
any two species. That powerful growth hormone is
insulin-like growth factor, or IGF-I. IGF-I in milk
and dairy products survives digestion and has been
identified as a key factor in the proliferation and
growth of breast and prostate cancer cells.
IGF-I is identical in human and cow.
If you believe that breast feeding "works" to protect
lactoferrins and immunoglobulins from digestion (and
benefit the nursing infant), you must also recognize
that milk is a hormonal delivery system. By drinking
cow's milk, one delivers IGF-I in a bioactive form to
the body's cells. When IGF-I from cow's milk alights
upon an existing cancer it is like pouring gasoline
on a fire.
"Human Insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I) and bovine
IGF-I are identical. Both contain 70 amino acids in
the identical sequence."
