    If you are referring to Colustrum, I believe that is only in the milk for the first day or two after a baby cow has been born.

    TNT- I could give a shit what cuts it with you. Who are you. Why does it matter if what I say "cuts it with you". That is the first time I've heard (damn I said it again) someone use "highly scientific jargon" as a positive-LMAO. This is not a meeting of scientists and I was in fact, telling what I had heard or read. What's it to you anyways?

    In terms of Growth Hormone


    By Robert Cohen Executive Director

    = Growth Factor


    Insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I) in humans and cows are identical. Like a key fitting into a lock, this hormone is a perfect match between two species of animal and exerts powerful growth effects. IGF-I is the most powerful growth hormone in the human body. Every sip of milk and every bite of cheese contains IGF-I.


    "BGH-treated milk is safe because it is indistinguishable from normal milk."

    Executive Branch Report on rbGH, February 9, 1994


    "Milk from cows given supplemental bovine somatotropin is the same as any other milk... Unfortunately, a few fringe groups are using misleading statements and blatant falsehoods as part of a long-running campaign to scare consumers about a perfectly safe food."

    Statement of C. Everett Koop on Genetically engineered milk, February 6, 1994


    "Five independent authorities, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), World Health Organization (WHO), the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), and ex-Surgeon General C. Everett Koop had found rbGH-treated milk to be indistinguishable from normal milk."

    Monsanto (manufacturer of rbGH) Press Release, June, 1992


    "From 1984 to 1986, Dr. Daughaday was the recipient of a research contract from Monsanto Company, a small fraction of which was paid to Dr. Daughaday as a consulting fee.

    JAMA, 264 (8), 8/22/90 (Dr. Daughaday, the author of the JAMA publication was an "independent authority" referred to in Monsanto's Press Release)


    "Recombinant rbGH treatment produces an increase in the concentration of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) in cow's milk."

    FDA review of genetically engineered milk SCIENCE, 8/24/90, Vol 249


    "After somidobove (rbGH) injection, mean IGF-I levels in the treated milk are always higher than those found in the controls."

    World Health Organization Report Geneva, Switzerland. June, 1992


    "Levels of IGF increase in milk after cows are treated with rbGH."

    December, 1990 National Institutes of Health Assessment of Bovine Somatotropin


    "... serum IGF-I levels increased significantly in the milk drinking group…an increase of about 10% above baseline-but was unchanged in the control group."

    Journal of the American Dietetic Association, vol. 99, no. 10. October 1999

    There is no such thing as hormone-free milk. The healthiest milk from
    the healthiest cow is naturally loaded with lactoferrins,
    immunoglobulins, s______, and protein growth hormones. In an effort to
    provide their children with healthy foods, mothers and fathers search
    out products that are advertised to be "hormone free." Such marketing is
    deceptive. When drinking body fluids from animals, or eating their
    flesh, you ingest their naturally occurring hormones.

    The largest producer of so-called hormone-free milk in America is
    Horizon Farms.

    Horizon's organic milk contains animal fat and cholesterol, dioxins, and
    bacteria. The amount of somatic cells (pus) in organic milk is lower
    than milk from non-organic cows, but it's still dead white blood cells
    and dead bacteria.

    Cows do receive synthetic growth hormones to produce more milk, but these hormones aren't found in the milk. cows recieve rBGH (recombinant Bovine Growth hormone). The rBGH causes the pituitary gland of the cows to produce more IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth factor). A higher concentration of IGF-1 is found in milk of cows treated with BGH.

    Leave the Milk for the cows. You're better off without it.

    Check out like Superapnah said.

    that's propaganda, honestly you think that the health of the public is their major concern?

    Studies showing consistently that just one serving a day of soyfoods contributes to a reduction in cancer risk are encouraging. Consuming one serving of soyfoods is a step most individuals would not find too difficult to take."

    "A major study published in the August, 2001, Journal of the American Medical Association found that infants fed soy formula grow to be just as healthy as those raised on cow's milk formulas."

    "Cow's milk provides more than nine times as much saturated fat as soy beverages, so is far more likely to contribute to heart disease."

    "Soy beverages provide more than 10 times as much essential fatty acids as cow's milk, and so provide a far healthier quality of fat."

    "Soy beverages are cholesterol-free, while cow's milk contains 34 mg of cholesterol per cup, which again means that cow's milk is far worse for your heart and cardiovascular system."

    "Soy beverages lower both total and LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels, while cow's milk raises both total and LDL cholesterol levels, providing yet more reasons soymilk is better for your health."

    "Soy beverages contain numerous protective phytochemicals that may protect against chronic diseases such as heart disease and osteoporosis. Cow's milk contains no phytochemicals."

    "Men who consume one to two servings of soymilk per day are 70 percent less likely to develop prostate cancer than men who don't."

    I'm afraid you have mistaken my position. I am for the drinking of milk.

    If THE MAN OF STEEL takes it then so should YOU!

    I would think that a clean raw milk from grass fed cows in unpolluted area is the best. All the fat from dairy being bad for you is completely BS.
