Breast Milk Could Be the Next Cancer Treatment
Well, well, look at this!  No wonder the 'Powers That Be' want to attack mothers who feed their babies from the breast (as nature intended).  Thanks to media propaganda, a mother seen breast-feeding her baby in public is looked upon as shameful.  Pfft!   tinyok
They just didn't want any healthy babies, so Big Pharma can keep lining their pockets.  No telling (if we only knew) what they put in baby formula these days that won't manifest into an illness for years to come!

But, I digress... back to the topic at hand:

Quote:The health benefits of breast milk have long been touted, but experts are now testing whether a compound found in mother’s milk could help treat cancer.

The accidental discovery of the effects of a breast milk compound, nicknamed “Hamlet” by scientists, could mean a more effective and targeted way to kill cancerous tumor cells.

Researchers from the University of Lunt in Sweden have revealed some positive results after studying the effects Hamlet has on bladder cancer patients. In the early trials, those injected with the compound began to shed dead tumor cells through their urine within days.
“There’s something magical about Hamlet’s ability to target tumor cells and kill them,” Dr. Catharina Svanborg told the Daily Mail.
But the discovery came completely by accident while the team was researching antibiotics.

“We were looking for novel antimicrobial agents, and new breast milk is a very good source of these,” Svanborg continued. “During one experiment we needed human cells and bacteria to be present, and we chose human tumor cells for practical reasons.”
“To our amazement,” she added, “when we added this compound of milk, the tumor cells died. It was a totally serendipitous discovery.”

Researchers believe that a reaction takes place with breast milk when it hits the gut. It produces a protein called alpha-lactalbumin, which targets cancer cells.

The breast milk compound targets cancer cells alone, offering an alternative to chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments, which can damage both healthy and cancerous cells in the body.

The scientists hope the breast milk compound could also help bowel and cervical cancer patients. A trial of the Hamlet substance against a placebo is currently being planned to test the promising benefits of the compound.

And there you have it; nature wins once again!  My mother always said breast milk is best for a healthy baby, but if you don't want to breast feed, goat's milk is the next best thing. Mothers know best. tinybiggrin
