Homogenized Milk: Rocket Fuel for Cancer
A human is not
a fish, but we share many of the same basic mechanisms common to
all living creatures.
Some fish lay
a staggering amount of eggs. Most eggs are consumed by creatures
both large and small. I recall the story of a fifty-pound ling fish
that had over 25 million eggs within her body. Nature finds a way
to allow a mere handful of eggs to survive so that they grow into
adults and propagate their species. That is nature's way. Big numbers.
Long odds. How many human sperm are produced to fertilize one egg?
About 300 million for each reproductive action, yet only one is
destined to achieve that final purpose for which it was so designed.
A human body
manufactures protein messengers in much the same way. Proteins are
delicate necklaces, composed of different colored beads called amino
acids, which occupy assigned places in a string that is the protein.
acids and enzymes break down proteins, the amino acids are used
as building blocks for the body's new proteins. When an intact protein
is delivered from one part of the body to another, it conveys an
unbroken and uninterrupted message.
Milk from one
mammalian species to its young is the perfectly designed mechanism
that delivers lactoferrins and immunoglobulins to that happily receptive
infant. Nature's way is to produce many more proteins than are required.
The wisdom of this mechanism takes into account mass destruction.
Enough protein messengers survive to exert their intended effects.
insures that nature's perfect plan is made even more efficient.
Too efficient, in fact. Homogenization defeats the perfect plan.
In homogenized milk, an excess of proteins survive digestion. Imagine
an environment in which 20 million ling eggs become fertilized to
grow into adulthood?
is the worst thing that dairymen did to milk. Simple proteins rarely
survive digestion in a balanced world.
When milk is
homogenized, it passes through a fine filter under high pressure,
and in so doing, the fat globules (liposomes) are made smaller (micronized)
by a factor of ten times or more. These fat molecules become evenly
dispersed within the liquid milk.
Milk is a hormonal
delivery system. With homogenization, milk becomes a very powerful
and efficient way of bypassing normal digestive processes and delivering
steroid and protein hormones to the human body (both the cow's natural
hormones and the ones they were injected with to produce more milk).
fat molecules in milk become smaller and become "capsules" for substances
that bypass digestion. Proteins that would normally be digested
in the stomach or gut are not broken down, and are absorbed into
process breaks up an enzyme in milk (xanthine oxidase), which in
its altered (smaller) state can enter the bloodstream and react
against arterial walls causing the body to protect the area with
a layer of cholesterol. If this happened only occasionally, it wouldn't
be a big deal, but if it happens on an ongoing basis... well, need
I say any more.
In theory, proteins
are easily broken down by digestive processes. In reality, homogenization
insures their survival so that they enter the bloodstream and deliver
their messages. Often, the body reacts to foreign proteins by producing
histamines, then mucus. And since cow's milk proteins can resemble
a human protein, they can become triggers for autoimmune diseases.
Diabetes and multiple sclerosis are two such examples. The rarest
of nature's quirks results after humans consume homogenized cow's
milk. Nature has the best sense of humor, and always finds a way
to add exclamation marks to man's best-punctuated sentences. One
milk hormone, the most powerful growth factor in a cow's body, is
identical to the most powerful growth factor in the human body.
Hormones make cells grow, and don't differentiate between normal
cells and cancerous cells. (It is well known that the earlier onset
of menstration is linked to a higher risk of breast cancer and other
cancers, but it's said "we don't know why". Well, it is
known why; it's the overdosing of hormones by consuming them via
an animal-based diet - especially dairy products. We're not designed
to intake hormones; we make all the ones we need.)
cardiologists (Oster & Ross) once demonstrated that impossible-to-survive
milk proteins did in fact survive digestion.
They don't teach
this in medical school, folks. Doctors who have an opinion on the
subject believe that milk proteins cannot possibly survive digestion.
They are wrong. The Connecticut cardiologists discovered that Bovine
Xanthene Oxidase (BXO) survived long enough to compromise every
one of three hundred heart attack victims over a five-year period.
were confirmed, and published in 1981 in the Proceedings of the
Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine (vol. 163:1981):
been shown that milk antibodies are significantly elevated in
the blood of male patients with heart disease."
growth factor (IGF-I) had not been discovered when Oster and Ross
made their magnificent observations and conclusions. Bovine Xanthene
Oxidase did not set the scientific community on fire. Too many syllables
for headline writers. Insulin-like growth factor presents the same
problem. Cancer has just two syllables. IGF-I has been identified
as the key factor in the growth of every human cancer.
milk, with its added hormones, is rocket fuel for cancer. One day,
hopefully, the world will recognize that cow's milk was never intended
for human consumption. We can get all the calcium we need from a
healthy, balanced plant-based diet. What we don't need is all the
degenerative disease that dairy products contribute to.
Dear Mr. Cohen,
There is an
important detail missing from your review of homogenization. You
noted that confirmed research demonstrated a relationship between
the micronization of fat globules and heart disease, but you did
not state the mechanism.
John Robbins, and others have reported that these micronized fat
globules are much "sharper" than their larger forebearers,
and serve to abrade arterial lumen (the innermost linings of these
blood vessels). Such chronic irritation triggers a protective mechanism
whereby the body plates out cholesterol onto the lumen to protect
it from the constant irritation produced by the micronized fat globules.
The end result is atherosclerotic plaquing.
two other phenomena of our culture high level consumption
of hydrogenized vegetable oils (another source of this intra-lumen
plaque) plus the onslaught of refined sugars and flours (which trigger
high level bursts of another potent intra-luminal irritant known
as insulin) this unavoidable side-effect of drinking homogenized
milk produces the rapid acceleration of cardiovascular disease now
routinely seen in young people.
Noel A. Taylor,
And if you think that raw, unpasteurized, unhomogenized milk is
a wholesome food, think about this: Even raw unpasteurized cow milk
was never a healthful food for humans. It's only a
proper food for baby cows, and even they quit drinking
it when they mature. Humans are the only species that "sucks
the teats" of other species. Humans' best food for the first
2-4 years is human milk, and after that, even human milk is not
proper human food. Plus, the calcium in milk is not well absorbed
due to the lack of magnesium, and even when raw, it still contributes
to osteoporosis. And even the naturally occurring hormones in milk
(IGF-1) from cows not treated with Bovine Growth Hormone still contribute
