OK, first of all, the difference between Human Milk and Cows milk is the ratio of casien to whey proteins. Cows have more Whey and Humans have more Casien (or it’s the other way around) ;-)


Now Human Milk, Cows Milk, and apparently Soy Milk contain growth hormones. This is what is going to kick you in the arse. Cow Milk contains a hieghted amount of IGF-1 (thanks to the rBGH given to poor cows to keep them producing milk) plus Whey will also increase your IGF-1 levels. Now, Soy does the very same thing, it will increase your IGF-1 levels and somewhere I read it actually contains IGF-1. If that's the case, it's all interchangable, thus why in scientific studies it's been found that those that drink milk, have an increase in this highly potent growth factor. This growth factor is what has been attributed to the growth of cells (overgrowth could mean cancer), increases during Puberty (so we can grow, etc), and is also associated with Insulin Resistance, Type II Diabetes, etc. Oh and by the way, this factor is what Accutane (or a great hormone balancing diet), happens to reduce!

Now someone brought up an amazing point, there is no other speciies that consume milk after a certain age except for humans. In fact they say we shouldn't give our pets milk because it's bad for them...hmm. Furthermore, 90% Asians, 70% African Americans, and 2% Causians are considered lactose intolerant. I suppose if you consider the way evolution worked, that kinda makes sense. Anyway, apparently this is something that happens gradually after birth. If you are intolerant (I'm beggining to show very very slight signs) such as mucous/phlegm forming after consumption, stomach cramps, gas, bloating, etc...you are intolerant. Of course the other reaction to this would be inflammation (cystic acne anyone?).

So if animals themselves are intolerant, how on earth is it that they still manage to get all the calcium they need without consuming milk? Well carnivores are getting it from the animals bones that they eat and maybe some vegetation. Whereas the herbaviores are getting it from plants of course. Come on, what milk are cows drinking daily to get themselves all big and strong?

BTW, did anyone here in the U.S. see that horrible milk commercial? The one where the kids tell their mom that they don't need milk to be strong, after all their really old next door neighbor doesn't and look how strong he is. Then it cuts over to the neighber lifting a wheelbarrow, but instead his arms DETACH!!! The kids scream and start gulping down the milk. I think dairy will always taste good, but that really really bothers me ={

So anyway, my friend across the street never drank milk intentionally at least. Her teeth were perfect, straight, no cavities, and she was much stronger and athletic than I (did I mention flawless skin?). She’s half Asian so of course she got a healthy dose of that good stuff, but she had the American food too. So my guess was she was definitely eating more of the foods that would build calcium. Of course, as nature would have it, the foods that will contain calcium, will also contain most, if not all, of the other essential bone building vitamins, Vit. D (fish oil or the sun), Vitamin K, Magnesium, Phosphorus, and Boron. So just eat plenty of these foods and you won’t need the convenience of consuming dairy products.

Yogurt (450 mg), Sardines (325 mg), Fortified Orange juice (300 mg), fortified Oatmeal (215 mg), Fortified Foods/Milk Substitutes, Turnip greens (200 mg), Carrots, Spinach, Almonds (3.5 oz = 210 mg) , Celery, Raisens (20mg), Cabbage, Romaine Lettuce (not iceburg), Kale, Leafy Greens, etc

For those of you that MUST have something with your cereals or for a change, you should definitely try the other milk substitutes since refined soy products aren’t any better for some of you. There’s:

Rice Milk

Almond Milk – Pacific is the best I’ve tried yet

Hazelnut Milk

Whole Grain Milk

Potato Milk – Vance’s Darifree is very popular in hospitals and for Celiacs or the Gluten Intolerant

Of course, other varieties of nut & grain milks that you can dream up (from scratch).

HTH =)

Thanks. Say did you ever remember hearing anything about colustrum? A lot of great products that are supposed to be wonderful healers like this HGH (some acne sufferers wanted to take this), or DHEA (on stimulation tests, this never raised whereas my other androgens did), are horrible for us acne sufferers because we already produce or obtain more than enough!

"Colostrum is considered to be one of the most important ingredients in a good HGH enhancer. Colostrum contains IGF-1, a fancy way of saying "human growth hormone". Scientific research conducted in the last decade in major medical research centers and universities throughout the world, has shown that the molecular combinations of the immune and growth factors in cow's Colostrum are virtually identical to human. Research has also shown that only Colostrum is not species specific and can work in humans and lower mammals. " http://www.affordabl.../megatropin.asp

Now the other questionable milk products are those of Yogurt and Kefir. Some people are able to handle yogurt and other's not so. My guess is that if yogurt is safe (naturally has less IGF-1?), its' going to be the organic kind (normal IGF-1 levels) and not what you can pick up at your local grocery store.

Take care =)
