FACT: Breast Milk Can Kill Cancer Cells

with 3 comments

As you are aware, I have been taking Lactoferrin capsules to boost my immune system.  Mothers milk contains 18% lactoferrin and I have often thought about sourcing some mothers milk to see how it works.  Now, I find that mothers milk has been seen as a cancer killer for more than 50 years.  I gotta get me some!

Breast milk has been proven to help build immunity in newborn babies and is a unique nutritional source that cannot adequately be replaced by any other food.

Mrs Jones, 62, said her cancer levels when she was diagnosed in December were “dramatic”. But after a month of daily doses of breast milk she said her levels had reduced significantly. The mother-of-three admits she is also following standard cancer treatments including oral chemotherapy.

In 2010 researchers in Sweden published a study that showed breast milk could kill cancer cells.  In 1999, immunologist Catharina Svanbor and a team of Swedish researchers discovered that a component in human milk destroys cancer cells on contact. The protein killed every type of cancer cell tested while actively strengthening surrounding healthy tissue.

Here is a story of a scientist who was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Knowing the benefits of human milk, he was able to get a friend to donate 2 oz of breast milk a day. While drinking the milk, his PSA level, used to detect prostate cancer cells, neared the normal level. Once the mother weaned ending his access to breast milk, his levels increased. Then he obtained a prescription to get breast milk from a milk bank and once back on the breast milk, his PSA levels improved again.

Breast Milk Treatment Improves the Quality of Life of Cancer Patients

A recently published qualitative study in the Journal of Human Lactation assessed whether cancer patients that had taken human milk as part of their therapy experienced any benefit. Men and women with various stages of cancer were asked to evaluate their cancer symptoms before and after commencing human milk therapy. Patients reported the following improvements after beginning human milk treatment:

  • Reduction of chemotherapy symptoms (nausea, diarrhea, fatigue)
  • Drop in PSA levels after one month (prostate cancer)
  • Improved respiratory function
  • Improved appearance and fewer colds

  1. The strange thing is that the Oncs tell you that you should NOT take immune boosters during Chemo… My thinking would suggest that they are wrong… And yet they say that “That stuff does nothing” ….. As mentioned elsewhere, I have a friend alive still, after being diagnosed with Mobile Phone cancer. And his cure has been strong immune boosters, so I can appreciate a belief that lactoferin could assist with killing that dreaded C…..

    • Fonterra dairies in NZ have provided the university oncology unit with icecream laced with lactoferrin as a means of reducing the side effects of chemo – and it works – try this link about it

  2. Yet another thing I would like to convey is that as an alternative to
    trying to accommodate all your online degree lessons on days
    that you finish off work (because most people are drained when they get back), try to receive most of your sessions on
    the week-ends and only a couple courses in weekdays, even if it means taking some time away from your end of the week.
    This is really good because on the week-ends, you will be much more rested in addition to concentrated in
    school work. Thanks for the different suggestions I have realized from your blog site.
