In the world of nature, mammals consume milk for fast growth, and then they are weaned! Ask a cattleman-adult cows that insist on stealing milk from other cows are either cured or butchered! Now we are learning that milk, with its rich nutriments? For fast fast growth and heavy loads of saturated fat, growht-pushing hormones, and animal protein such as casein, is turning out to be a clear factor in causing metastatic cancer of the prostate. The Harvard health statistics group under the leadership of Dr. Willett has shown that one glass of cows milk per meal increased the risk of metastatic cancer of the prostate abut 40 percent in men. The harmful effect of meat is even greater, at 70 procent risk. Consumption of both dairy and meat caused 200 percent more risk of this common dangerous form of metastatic cancer! This basic finding has been confirmed from France, Australia, and Spain.
More incriminating evidence is reported, When teenage boys drink lots of milk, they get 66 percent more seminoma(cancer of testicles) for each 20 servins of milk per month! Sixty servings of milk would be about two glasses per day. Testicular cancer is not glamorous! This information ought to put quite a dent in the milk lobby´s massive promotional campaigns. Incidentally, contrary to what some might think, skim milk is still and animal food, which contains saturated fatty acids and is loaded with a second-class protein called casein.
Then there is the common skin cancer, called squamous cell carcinoma. Australia is famous for this sunburn-induced disease. Reporting in the International Journal of Cancer a research group from Queensland found that high intakes of dairy products increased the risk for this skin cancer 2.53 times.
A health writer of considerable moment wrote the following in 1899: „The light given me is that it will not be very long before we shall have to give up any animal food. Even milk will have to be discarded.“
