- - I HAD PLANNED ON TAKING TODAY OFF
- Dear Friends,
Last night, I made a resolution to work harder
this year. Each time I go the extra yard in helping
somebody, I create a tiny ripple in an enormous ocean.
Please observe closely the next time you throw
a rock into a lake or ocean. It's always a bulls-eye!
Create enough ripples, and one makes waves.
Resolve to make waves. Together we can erode
ignorance, and change our landscape for the better.
Early this New Year's morning I received this letter
from a reader (name and EMAIL address withheld):
"What is your opinion of Transfer Factor?
It is our understanding that it is not colostrum
just the factor from colostrum that builds the
immune system. I am a vegan and make my
own soymilk, but I have been taking Transfer
Factor and have not had a cold, flu or such
"bugs" since I have been on it. People mention
the madcow disease, etc just because it does
come from milk. I have been on the fence
about it but since I have had so much better
health taking it, I continue to take it. Thanks
for any words of wisdom that you have."
Transfer factor is a substance found in colostrum.
It works, and that is the problem.
When a mother gives birth to her infant, her
mammary glands produce a pre-milk formula
called colostrum. Cows, dogs, sheep, humans...
all mammals produce their own "perfect formula"
which provides disease- preventing immunological
factors and hormones which promote growth.
Colostrum is super-saturated with hormones.
Each hormone regulates one or more of the thousands
of metabolic processes occurring every second inside
of the human body. Some hormones regulate cellular
metabolism. Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, is
actually a steroid hormone. In the 1850's, scientists
first recognized that the thyroid gland produced a
substance which regulated metabolism. A decade later,
it was noted that the pancreas acted as a gland,
secreting a substance that would later be identified
as insulin. Hormones are chemical messengers.
There is a group of protein hormones that regulate
growth. These protein hormones (made up of amino
acids) instruct cells to grow. The first one of these
to be discovered was appropriately named 'Human
Growth Hormone'(hGH) or human somatotropin(hST).
Dogs have canine somatotropin CST/CGH, pigs have
porcine somatotropin (pST/pGH) and cows have bovine
somatotropin (bST/bGH). Human Growth hormone was
discovered just before World War II. It was so
named because of what it did: promoted cellular
proliferation and growth.
Two decades after GH was discovered, an even more
powerful growth factor was found. IGF-I Insulin-like
growth factor(IGF-I) received its name because its
structure resembled that of insulin. However,
its function is nothing like insulin. Had IGF-I been
discovered before GH, it would have received that
name. IGF-I is much more powerful than GH. IGF-I
is the most powerful growth hormone known to science.
A MIRACLE OF NATURE
IGF-I, the most POWERFUL growth hormone in the human
body, is identical between humans and cows.
DOES TRANSFER FACTOR WORK?
Manufacturers and multi-level marketing sales persons
call colostrum and transfer factor the ultimate
anti-aging formulas. They claim that their formula
removes wrinkles and promote athletic endurance. They
repair muscle tears and promote nerve growth.
ARE THE CLAIMS ACCURATE?
YES! Colostrum works. IGF-I works. Transfer
factor works!. Hormones work.
WHAT ELSE CAN TRANSFER FACTOR DO FOR YOU?
Hormones do not discriminate. Transfer factor's
major component is IGF-I, the most powerful growth
hormone and cellular proliferator. When IGF-I is
produced naturally, it loses its potency (by
attaching to receptor proteins or by being broken
down into its basic components) in less than 30
seconds. In colostrum or transfer factor, IGF-I
can "survive" for 30 minutes.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IGF-I IN COLOSTRUM OR
TRANSFER FACTOR FINDS AN EXISTING CANCER?
Infants are not usually born with cancers. Cancers
are quite common in adults, but normally controlled
by our immune systems.
THE MISSING LINK-CANCER IS COMMON, WAITING TO GROW
On November 8, 1994 the New York Times reported the
results of an autopsy study on pre-mature deaths
(page C-1, Gina Kolata).
The study revealed that nearly 40% of women between
the ages of 40 and 50 have breast cancer and
virtually all adults over the age of 50 have
some form of cancer.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR A CANCER TO GROW?
Every cancer begins with one cell. That cell doubles,
on average, every ninety days. After three months,
it is two cells. After six months, four. After one
year, the cancer is 16 cells in size.
After twenty cycles, or doublings, that cancer will
grow to one million cells, which is the tiniest
lump a woman can feel in her breast. It can take
8-10 years for a cancer to be clinically diagnosed.
Somewhere along that timeline, the cancer stops
growing, usually suppressed by the immune system's
tight genetic controls.
SOMETHING MAKES CANCER GROW
IGF-I has been called the key factor in the growth
and proliferation of breast and prostate cancers.
WOULD YOU TAKE A SUBSTANCE CONTAINING
THE KEY FACTOR TO CANCER'S GROWTH?
Remove wrinkles from your face or get an extra burst
of energy and you might very well be lighting the
fuse for your future cancer diagnosis. Transfer
factor works. Colostrum works. There is no debate.
They might very well work too well. Take transfer
factor or colostrum today and in ten years you
might not make the connection between today's
phenomenal growth product and tomorrow's not-so
