 Arguments for an Organic Hormone Free Milk

Currently, fetal or embryonic proteins have been describedfor many cancer types. Out of those, for many it is known that progesterone influences their development and progression. Progesterone is the steroidhormone that is released during pregnancy. However, this finding did not lead to a search for progesterone or progesterone receptors in patients withcancer, because most of them are beyond childbearing age.At some point, however, it became evident that some prominent cancers, like breast, prostate and colon cancer, were extremely rare in populations thatdid not use milk or milk products as food. One example are East Asians. It became evident that Japanese, who reach an age comparable or higher thaninhabitants of Western industrialized countries, did not show these diseases prior to adopting Western nutrition, especially
 
the use of milk-based food.
How could this finding be explained?
 Naïve in the science of milk production, one would assume that progesterone production is stopped and milk production starts at the end of pregnancy.This notion is wrong. It is indeed possible to gain milk during pregnancy. And as it is possible, it is done in order to produce the maximum amount of milk by keeping cows pregnant almost continuously throughout their life span, thanks to artificial insemination and hormonal manipulations via their nutrition. About 40% of the milk produced today originates from pregnant cows (Rollinger M 2004
 
). This milk is a major source of progesterone in our daily nutrition.We are confronted with milk products or milk-derived products in many processed foods like frozen dinners, sauces, cakes, sweets, drinks to nameonly few. As a result, children, as well as female (not pregnant) and male adults produce fetal proteins. For cancer patients, progesterone is especiallydangerous, because progesterone is a hormone that originally stops the human body’s immune reactions to the embryo. In the same fashion it also protects the cancerous tumor from the immune response. This is reflected in a raise of the tumor marker CA15-3, which is linked to the embryonic protein called MUC1 (Zhang K 1997).

In cancer patients, it stops the immune reaction to cancer cells and hence the tumor is not disturbed to proliferate. Other fetal proteins like the vascular endothelial growth factor VEGF, which is produced progesterone-dependently, too, help the tumor to acquire blood vessels (neoangiogenesis).Currently, neoangiogenesis is pharmaceutically addressed with antiangiogenetic agents like bevacizumab, but as these agents work against only one of many progesterone dependent proteins, the success has been limited so far. Interestingly, a comparable VEGF-associated process has been revealedduring late diabetes, when the patients suffer from aberrant vascularization of the retina resulting in blindness, or vascularization of kidney tissueresulting from dialysis.Of course this process is not limited to diabetes or cancer patients, which often do not live long enough to experience it. We see the same process in theeye of otherwise healthy people. There it is called "wet age-related macular degeneration" and "macular edema" and is treated with VEGF directedantibodies (Tremolada G 2007).Other progesterone-activated proteins might provoke the insulin resistance known as Diabetes type 2, which we often see in breast cancer patientsduring disease progression. In the pregnant women, this metabolic change may be necessary to keep the glucose in the blood. But even for pregnantwomen, the additional progesterone from food is deleterious. Many women on a typical Western diet develop gestational diabetes, and some keep itafter pregnancy.Progesterone-mediated VEGF is found in many malignancies like the medulloblastoma of children, breast cancer, and colon cancer. What should bedone? First, it appears prudent to avoid milk products unless milk is produced the old-fashioned way (not during pregnancy). This of course wouldrequire rigorous testing and the introduction of a new label for “organic AND hormone-free milk”. Although this would increase production costs, itwould improve the situation of seriously ill people, and reduce the risk for healthy persons to develop milk-borne progesterone-dependent diseases.The scientific evidence for the dangerous role of progesterone is so vast that additionally studies are not necessary to actually adopt new guidelines.[Hypothetical?:]A patient with breast cancer, for example, will see a rapid decline in tumor markers like CA 15-3, if milk products are completelyavoided. This diet, also known asJane A. Plant Diet, really works. It especially works if there is no interference by cortisones, which protect the tumor cells, too (Mattern J 2007). And it does not work only for breast cancer patients. Fast declines of the CA-125 marker (ovarian cancer) have beenobserved (own[but small]experience). CA15-3 is also increased for prostate cancer, where it is better known as MUC1 (Li Y 2007). There are several ways to test the effect of progesterone. The enzyme alkaline phosphatase, for example, can be used to measure the effect of  progesterone on progesterone sensible cells (Zava DT 1998). During pregnancy, bone alkaline phosphatase titers of the mother increases (Hellmeyer L 2006
 
). Interestingly, the same increase occurs in patients with rheumatic arthritis (Oelzner P 2007) and in cancer patients with bone metastases (Lein M 2007).In summary, there is such a compelling body of evidence for the dangerous role of progesterone produced by the modern dairy industry, that politicalaction is over due to ban the practice of collecting milk from pregnant cows.
