Milk increases chances of multiple birth

Apr 18, 2008
A study published in the U.S. 'Journal of Reproductive Medicine' shows that drinking milk dramatically increases the chances for women to have twin babies or even triplets. The study shows that compared to mothers who avoid dairy milk, the milk-consuming mothers have a 13% greater chance of having a multiple birth! Vegan women were found to have a 20% less chance of having twins compared to women who consume dairy products. (Mechanisms of Twinning: Effect of Diet and Heredity on the Human Twinning Rate, May 2006).

The study indicates that this is due to bovine IGF-1 (a bovine growth hormone present is all types of dairy milk). All recent studies show that IGF-1 is responsible for many types of cancer and other diseases in humans who consume milk on a regular basis.

Dr. Gary Steinman of the 'Long Island Jewish Medical Center' in New Hyde Park, USA, conducted the study. He took samples from more than a thousand women who were avoiding meat and dairy products and observed that they had five times less chances of bearing twins compared to female milk consumers. Dr. Steinman thinks that animal-product foodstuffs, especially dairy foods, can increase the chance of releasing more than one egg during ovulation, leading to the fertilization of twin eggs.

This study is also supported by other findings showing that in some populations where dairy farming is traditional, the rate of twin birth is high. This adds further support to the vast amount of research showing how IGF-1 in dairy milk is so harmful to human health.

People consuming dairy milk will ingest this harmful IGF-1 bovine growth hormone, and this completely upsets the natural hormonal balance of the human body. Giving birth to twins (or even triplets) is unnatural in the human species, and is not a sign of good health.

Furthermore, a little known fact about cow's milk is that the combination of IGF-1 and estrogen in milk significantly accelerates early puberty in young boys and girls. The bovine growth factor accelerates the onset of puberty in humans, making you more prone to getting cancer later in life.

Early puberty in girls causes depression, aggressiveness, social withdrawal, moodiness, behavioural problems, and a greater tendency to smoke and take drugs. Also, it is known that early puberty in a girl increases the risk of osteoporosis later in life.

"There are several reasons why dairy products raise a woman's hormone levels causing a variety of hormone-dependent problems from early onset of menstruation (menarche) to PMS and uterine fibroids - but one is unique to cow's milk: cows are milked even while they are pregnant. As a result of the pregnancy, cows secrete high levels of estrogen into their milk." (Janowski T., 'Mammary Secretion Of Estrogens In The Cow', Domest. Anim. Endocrinol. 2002 Jul; 23(1-2): 125-37).

Clearly, the way to avoid harmful IGF-1 hormones is to avoid dairy milk. You can easily switch to delicious and super-nutritious non-dairy milk. This can have a dramatic beneficial effect on health. Making non-dairy milk is quick and easy, plus you get the added bonus of saving money. See below for details of a free ebook showing how to make non-dairy milk.
