Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. One out of every two men and one out of every three women will be diagnosed with cancer sometime during their lifetime. Fascinating research demonstrates how milk protein (casein) raises our levels of a powerful cancer-promoting growth hormone called Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1, (IGF-1) which has been found to be the "most relevant cancer promoter ever discovered."

IGF-1's specific purpose is to promote growth, however if you are a fully-grown adult, cell growth is something we want to slow down, not accelerate.  Not only does IGF-1 promote the growth of normal tissue, it promotes the growth of abnormal tissues like cancer. (Especially hormone-dependent cancers such as breast and prostate cancer.)  Find out how diet plays a role in reducing our cancer risk by initiating the death of cancer cells during cancer's promotional stage.  Read our article,  "Reduce Cancer Risk by Avoiding Dairy."
