Harvard study: Pasteurized milk from industrial dairies linked to cancer

The truth has once again shaken the foundation of the ‘American Tower
of Babel’ that is mainstream science, with a new study out of Harvard University showing
that pasteurized milk product from factory farms is linked to causing
hormone-dependent cancers. It turns out that the concentrated animal
feeding operations (CAFO) model of raising cows on factory farms churns
out milk with dangerously high levels of estrone sulfate, an estrogen
compound linked to testicular, prostate, and breast cancers.

Dr. Ganmaa Davaasambuu, Ph.D., and her colleagues specifically
identified “milk from modern dairy farms” as the culprit, referring to
large-scale confinement operations where cows are milked 300 days of the
year, including while they are pregnant. Compared to raw milk from her
native Mongolia, which is extracted only during the first six months
after cows have already given birth, pasteurized factory milk was found
to contain up to 33 times more estrone sulfate.

Evaluating data from all over the world, Dr. Davaasambuu and her
colleagues identified a clear link between consumption of such
high-hormone milk, and high rates of hormone-dependent cancers. In other
words, contrary to what theU.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC), theU.S. Department of Agriculture(USDA),
and the conventional milk lobby would have you believe, processed milk
from factory farms is not a health product, and is directly implicated
in causing cancer.

“The milk we drink today is quite unlike the milk our ancestors were
drinking” without apparent harm for 2,000 years, Dr. Davaasambuu is
quoted as saying in theHarvard University Gazette. “The milk we drink today may not be nature’s perfect food.”

Meanwhile, raw, grass-fed, organic milk from cows milked at the
proper times is linked to improving digestion, healing autoimmune
disorders, and boosting overall immunity, which can help prevent cancer.
Though you will never hear any of this from the mainstream media, all
milk is not the same — the way a cow is raised, when it is milked, and
how its milk is handled and processed makes all the difference in
whether or not the end product promotes health or death.

American government seeks to further perpetuate the lie that
all milk is the same with egregious new provisions in 2012 Farm Bill

Of particular concern are new provisions in the 2012 Farm Bill that
create even more incentives for farmers to produce the lowest quality,
and most health-destroying, type of milk possible. Rather than
incentivize grazing cows on pastures, which allows them to feed on
grass, a native food that their systems can process, the government
would rather incentivize confined factory farming methods that force
cows to eat genetically-modified (GM) corn and other feed, which makes
them sick.

it currently stands, the government already provides incentives for
farmers to stop pasturing their animals, instead confining them in cages
as part of a Total Confinement Dairy Model, aka factory farms. But the
2012 Farm Bill will take this a step further by outlawing “component
pricing” for milk, which involves allowing farmers to sell milk with
higher protein and butterfat at a higher price.

Allowing farmers to sell higher quality milk at a higher price
provides an incentive for them to improve the living conditions on their
farms, and milk better cow breeds. But the U.S. government would rather
standardize all milk as being the same, and create a system where
farmers continue to produce cancer-causing milk from sick cows for the
millions of children to drink.

    dont worry about your milk causing your death , i think there are a lot more problems right now , Iran , Nth Korea -- ect.

    Firstly, the title of this topic is wrong. The story links confined factory farming to the production of high-hormone milk, not pasteurization.

    Secondly, why has a university study only discovered this health threat now, in 2012? Does the risk of cancer apply to everyone or just certain individuals who are sensitive to high hormones?

    Lastly, elect Ron Paul, close the USDA and end farming and aggro subsidies.

    Is there a company that sells hormone filled milk that is unpasteurized milk? Its probably just a small technicality at worst.
    Second, cancer is a relatively new pandemic. Research is practically just getting out of its infancy, and to make matters worse there are so many carcinogens that exist today that its difficult to isolate causes. There is also problems with companies like Monsanto constantly suppressing all information against their products.

    And third, agreed. Get the fed's out of it, and let the free market decide what our money goes to.

    SUPPORT INDEPENDENT FARMERS! Your Health Depends On Them


    The “faster, bigger, cheaper” approach to food production is unsustainable and contributing to the destruction of our planet and your health
    It is time to shift our food paradigm toward one that is more focused on natural, organic and independent community farms that practice polyculture, as opposed to monoculture
    Monoculture agricultural practices damage the soil, increase dependence on chemical fertilizers and pesticides, encourage the use of GMOs, and contribute to antibiotic resistant bacterial strains
    The argument that small independent farms cost more to operate and are less profitable is a myth that has been disproven by science
    Government subsidizes corn growers but not veggie growers, and massive food production monopolies like ADM and Cargill control the food chain from seed to plate, essentially holding farmers captive

    Organic Grass fed beef, poultry and raw dairy need to make a huge comeback. Demand them!

    not one bit surprised....I remember a report a long time ago, saying that the transport of milk was used in contaminated containers that hauled everything from gasoline to sewage. This doesn't surprise me in the least

    Having been raised on a dairy farm, I believe that wasn't true then, and I doubt very much it's true now either. Not to worry.
