Why are our young girls going through puberty at age 7- 9 years of age? Before we blame pesticides and plasticizers, should we not consider these potent, mammalian estrogens we are pouring through our childrens’ bodies, in all the milk, cheese, ice cream and yogurt they eat?
Pro-milk forces have made the phytoestrogens in soy milk the target of suspicion for possible estrogenic effects – when, in reality the phytoestrogens’ effects are minimal, and actually protective against breast cancer. The overblown concerns over soy have skillfully diverted the conversation away from the powerful feminizing hormonal effects of the clearly active bovine estrogens abounding in dairy products.
The breast is a hormone responsive organ – could stimulating it day after day with potent bovine estrogens along with IGF-1, the most potent growth promoting hormone in the body – be contributing to the epidemic of breast lumps that American women search for in most every shower they take? It is well known that when dairy-consuming women do get breast cancer, it is more aggressive and lethal, thanks to the hormones and growth factors destined for baby calves but hijacked by humans with dreadful results.
Could bombarding the uterine muscles with potent estrogens from pregnant cows, year after year, prompt the growth of muscle tumors called fibroids (myomas) that lead to heavy menstrual bleeding, anemia, and finally, to so many hysterectomies? Given the prevalence of fibroids in the dairy-consuming countries, many scientists and clinicians have reached that very conclusion.
Gentlemen, what about those man-boobs that are growing on your chest? Estrogens certainly aren’t kind to the prostate gland in men, as there is clear evidence that the estrogens and IGF-1 make prostate tissue unstable and set men up for aggressive prostate cancer.
The proteins in cow’s milk have been associated with many medical conditions from asthma to acne to type-1 diabetes in children. Many patients suffering from asthmatic or allergic conditions often report dramatic relief from their symptoms upon omission of dairy products.
Check the ingredients to make sure you’re not consuming dairy! If a product doesn’t have an ingredient list or is misleading about it’s inclusion of dairy, report it to Health Canada.
