There are 4,700 different mammals, and millions of different hormones, and IGF-I is the only example of a hormone being identical between two species. Those two species are human and cow. Stroke victims should not be drinking a hormone which compromises their recovery and opportunity to go home.

Milk and dairy products (even organic milk) naturally contain insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), a powerful growth hormone.

The July, 2016 edition of the Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Disease includes dire news for milk drinkers, yogurt slurpers, and pizza addicts.

Neurologists at Kansas City Hospital worked with scientists at the department of physical Therapy and Rehabilitaion at Kansas Medical Center on stroke victims and found that a decrease in Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (IGF-1) was related to stroke recovery.

Doctors found:

Individuals who went home had decreases in IGF-1 whereas individuals who went to inpatient facilities had increases in IGF-1 (40%). These differences were significant.

Researchers concluded:

Our findings suggest that a decrease in IGF-1 during the first week of stroke is associated with favorable outcomes: shorter length of stay, greater independence and discharging home.

On May 23, 1999, Notmilk wrote an expose on University of Creighton Researcher, Robert Heaney and his financial relationship to the dairy industry. Yet, Dr. Heaney produced research proving that milk consumption increases IGF-1 levels.

"Serum IGF-I levels increased significantly in milk drinkers."
