Each sip of milk provides you with:

*Steroid hormones (Estradiol, Estriol, Progesterone, Testosterone, 17-Keto-steroids, Corticosterone, Vitamin D)
*Pituitary hormones (PRL, GH, TSH, FSH, LH ACTH Oxytocin)
*Hypothalamic hormones (TRH, LHRH, Somatostatin, PRL-inhibiting factor, PRL- releasing factor, GnRH, GRH)
*Thyroid and Parathyroid hormones (T3, T4, rT3, Calcitonin, Parathormone, PTH peptide) gastrointestinal peptides (Vasoactive intestinal peptide, Bombesin, Cholecystokinin, Gastrin, Gastrin inhibitory peptide, Pancreatic peptide, Y peptide, Substance P and Neurotensin)
*Growth Factors (IGF's (I and II), IGF binding proteins, Nerve growth factor, Epidermal growth factor and TGF alpha, TGF beta, Growth Inhibitors MDGI and MAF, and Platelet derived growth factor
*Others... PGE, PGF2 alpha, cAMP, cGMP, Delta sleep inducing peptide, Transferrin, Lactoferrin, Casomorphin and Erythropoietin

GENETICALLY ENGINEERED MILK CONTAINS INCREASED LEVELS OF NATURALLY OCCURRING GROWTH HORMONES

*IGF-I
Insulin-like Growth Factor-I (IGF-I) is identical between humans and cows. This powerful growth hormone (the most powerful in the human body) has 70 amino acids in the same exact gene sequence in both humans and cows. Like a key fitting into a lock, this hormone exerts powerful growth effects on humans and has been called the key factor in the growth and proliferation of childhood cancers.

*MILK HORMONES FOR OUR CHILDREN
When cows are injected with the genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (BGH/BST), levels of IGF-I in milk always increase. FDA published this admission in the August 24, 1990 issue of SCIENCE (Juskevich and Guyer).

*GOT MILK? GOT POWERFUL HORMONES
How many hormones will your children take today?

*MILK HORMONES FOR OUR CHILDREN
In Japan, every year since 1946, tens-of thousands of persons are interviewed and their diets carefully analyzed along with their weights and heights and other factors such as cancer rates and age of puberty (the last measured by the onset of menstruation in young girls). This study includes detailed personal interviews and is well respected and accepted by scientists. In 1975, 21,707 persons from 6,093 households were included in the sampling. The results of the study were published in a respected scientific journal, PREVENTIVE MEDICINE (Yasuo Kagawa, Department of Biochemistry, Jichi Medical)

*HOW MILK CHANGED JAPANESE CHILDREN
Japan had been devastated by losing a war and was occupied by American troops. Americanization included dietary changes. Milk and dairy products, relatively unknown to Japan, were becoming a significant part of the Japanese diet. According to this study, the per-capita yearly dietary intake of dairy products in 1950 was only 5.5 pounds. Twenty-five years later, the average Japanese ate 117.4 pounds of milk and dairy products. The consumption of milk and dairy products (containing powerful growth hormones) represented the biggest dietary change for the Japanese people.

*WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CHILDREN?
What happened to young girls and the impact of milk consumption on puberty is even more dramatic. In 1950 the average twelve-year old girl was 4'6" tall and weighed 71 pounds. By 1975 the average Japanese girl, after guzzling a daily diet of milk and dairy products containing 59 different bioactive hormones, had grown an average of 4 1/2 inches and gained 19 pounds. In 1950 the average Japanese girl had her first menstrual cycle at the age of 15.2 years. Twenty-five years later, after a daily intake of estrogen and progesterone from milk, the average Japanese girl was ovulating at the age of 12.2 years, three years younger.

Never before had such a dramatic dietary change been seen in such a unique population study.
