      "There is nothing sadder than a childless couple. It breaks
      my heart to see them relaxing around swimming pools in
      Florida, sitting all suntanned and miserable on the decks
      of their boats — trotting off to Europe like lonesome fools.
      It's an empty life. Nothing but money to spend, more time
      to enjoy and a whole lot less to worry about."

      Like millions of Americans, have you or somebody you know
      been unsuccessful after attempting to have children?

      A January 8, 2014 press release revealed that the Journal
      of Urology has determined that up to 24% of couples have
      trouble conceiving a child. Those using in vitro fertilization
      at fertility clinics often spend over $19,000 for treatment.

      Infertility has increased significantly since the 1980s.
      So too has per capita cheese and ice cream consumption.
      The increased intake of high density dairy foods may be
      the reason infertility rates are so high.

      Blame it on the naturally occurring galactose in dairy.

      Cow's milk contains lactose, a sugar consisting
      of two other sugars, glucose and galactose.

      For more disturbing galactose science:

      Summary & Review

      Much has been said about the pro's and con's of milk
      consumption and diary products. Some nutritionists claim
      there is nothing intrinsically wrong with dairy as long as
      it is organic(hormone-free), others claim a strong link
      between dairy and various disorders of the female reproductive
      system. The observations noted in the following study
      support the existing evidence that galactose, a sugar found
      only in milk, could have a powerful effect on human ovarian

      This 1994 study published in the "American Journal of
      Epidemiology" (AJE) provides data on a significant
      correlation between decreased women's fertility and both
      the ability to digest milk (lactose) and milk consumption
      rates. People who lose the ability to digest lactose are
      referred to as having adult hypolactasia. Specifically, the
      study found that female fertility at older ages is lower and
      the decline in fertility with aging is steeper in populations
      with high milk consumption.

      Independent studies have shown that galactose may be
      toxic to ovarian germ cells which are necessary for
      reproduction. Therefore, diminished milk digestion would
      lead to less galactose production, healthier ovarian germ
      cells and enhanced fertility for women. The correlation
      between milk consumption and digestion with a higher rate
      of loss of fertility is greatest at 35-39 years of age, the
      decade after the peak child bearing years of 25-29. Some
      experts propose that this delayed impact may be caused
      by the cumulative effects of long term milk consumption.

      very very common problem for couples today. I've seen
      statistics that are just staggering."
      - Michael Zaslow

      "Everyone has read about or knows someone who has gone through
      fertility treatments. It is an emotional nightmare, fueled by
      false hope and the promise of a treatment that will work."
