Don't forget that commercial dairy has an increased amount of IGF-1. While there is much debate about whether we are capable of using cow IGF-1, after milk consumption our levels of IGF-1 do increase.

That increase in IGF-1 is and may also be due to the Whey content and Casien content of dairy, especially low-fat and skin milk versions. Both of these proteins, especially Whey Protein are very good at increasing IGF-1 levels, and go ahead and ask people around here and see how many of them were able to tolerate whey protein powder for bulking up or training. Sad thing indeed it is, but most or some people can handle dairy.

If you give it up, you must give ALL forms of it up...ice cream, yogurt, cheese, butter, milk and products containing dairy, lactose, or the above proteins. This is the only way you can try to work at being 100% dairy free in order to see how it affects you.

I thought that hormones are produced and go into the milk naturally, besides the ones that they add to the cows to make them have more milk. Milk making is a hormonal process, right..so wouldnt totally hormone free milk be impossible?

Im sure it would be better than regular milk anyway...

I think that a lot of milk is just plain hard for most people to digest..which would explain it stressing the system and causing acne, hormone issues only make it worse.
