1) Milk contains 38 different hormones and growth factors.
I can drink water containing sulfuric acid, cyanide, and cocaine. In the appropriate concentrations, the effects would be negligible. Concentration. That's a key word. You understand it's implications, right?
The main culprit is IGF-1 A Harvard university study found that men with the highest IGF-1 levels had up to 4 times the risk of prostate cancer as those with the lowest. Professor Jeff Holly, a leading expert on IGF-1 said that those in the top quarter of IGF-1 blood levels have a three to fourfold risk in breast, prostate or colorectal cancer.
A high dairy intake is also linked to increased risk of ovarian cancer.
The 2010 100% Health Survey involving 55,000 people showed that the more milk a person consumed the worse their overall health, digestion, immune and hormonal health.
As I stated before, a "high" intake of anything would be unhealthy by definition. One can die by drinking sufficient amounts of perfectly pure, distilled water. Those crying about "bad" stuff don't seem to understand that it's not the stuff that gets you, it's the amount of the stuff.
Ever thought of doing some research?
"It's the amount of stuff"...That's what it says doesn't it? The higher your intake the greater your risk.
The National Cancer Institute, no friends of the naturopathic cancer movement, said that 19 out of 23 studies have shown a positive association between dairy intake and prostate cancer.
'This is one of the most consistent dietary predictors for prostate cancer in the published literature...In these studies men with the highest dairy intakes had approximately double the risk of total prostate cancer and up to fourfold increase in risk of metastatic or fatal prostate cancer relative to low consumers.'
