Casein (cow's milk protein) and Cancer
Kathy Freston: A Cure For Cancer? Eating A Plant-Based Diet
Seems like this guy's jumping to conclusions... the argument "casein causes cancer therefore all animal protein causes cancer" doesn't fly in my book. Nevertheless, with a family history of several types of cancer, I will not be eating anymore casein.
I'll still keep my whey protein powder on hand for when I need to eat something quick and protein-rich... (at least, until I run out... I may not buy more after that). I don't know if it's in this article but I read human breastmilk is 60/40 whey to casein, cow's milk is 20/80 whey to casein... why are we all still drinking this stuff?!
There's nothing here about animal fat being inherently dangerous but I'm wary of the "organic" cream and butter around me, because while it's nice to know the cows didn't eat GMO corn, chances are they were still eating corn, and who knows whether they ever got outside...
It's amazing to me how everyone accepts the idea that drinking the milk from a poorly treated, poorly fed animal is okay. (Not only okay, but oftentimes people even tout it as healthy!) How many of you would drink breast milk from a 500-pound frequent Mickey D's customer? Probably no one. But so many of us refuse to wean ourselves off cow's milk...
