Milk Sugar (Lactose) And Ovarian Cancer

The June 10, 2004 issue of the International Journal of Cancer (2004 Jun 10;110;2,:271-7) contains one of the largest studies in the history of humankind (80,326 participants). That study links the consumption of milk and dairy products to increased risk of ovarian cancer.

Remarkably, fifteen years earlier, the British journal Lancet (1989, Volume 2) reported:

"Galactose is linked both to ovarian cancer and infertility... women who consume dairy products on a regular basis have triple the risk of ovarian cancer than other women."

How many women have died of ovarian cancer since 1989? Each one of the more than 200,000 ovarian cancer deaths has been the cause of enormous emotional and physical pain. Each family of each mother, wife, and daughter who suffered should hold their own physicians personally responsible. Why? The information was out there for all doctors to see. Medical practitioners hid in the closet while women died for their sins. There is no longer an excuse for such ignorance.

This latest revelation from the Harvard Nurse study has identified toxic effects of milk sugar (lactose) metabolites. Lactose is comprised of two sugars, glucose and galactose. Galactose is a caustic sugar, having previously been identified by hundreds of peer-reviewed scientific studies as a causative factor in glaucoma, cataracts, heart disease, and other cancers. The "molecular tree" of a common food thickener, carrageenan, is galactose, although carrageenan use was not considered by this study's researchers.

In June's International Journal of Cancer study, scientists have determined that each 11-gram increase in daily milk sugar consumption (the same amount contained in one glass of milk) resulted in a 20% increase in the risk of serious cancers, with skim milk and low-fat milk containing higher amounts of lactose than whole milk.

Women between the ages of 1 and 101 have been successfully targeted by the marketing representatives of the dairy industry's milk promotion board.

In 1999, the American Journal of Epidemiology, (Volume 150) reported:

"Poor absorption of lactose may more than double the risk of ovarian cancer in women."

First came the Lancet study in 1989. Ten years later came the American Journal of Epidemiology report. Next month comes the confirmation. Milk sugar does not do the body any good. Does it taste delicious? Sure it does! Some people call milk sugar a taste to die for.
