    I often wonder if the unusual diet I've followed for more than 13 years might help cancer. The diet is that for more than 13 years now, I have been living more than 90% on fluid milk products, cow milk and cow cream. So every day more than 90% of my diet is some kind of milk or milks--nonfat, lowfat, or whole--plus I sometimes buy containers of half-and-half (half milk and half cream) or pure fluid whipping cream and...

      Sorry, I don't think the link worked. I think this one will. It takes you to a short message about the study. You have to then click "pdf" there and you'll see the study: http://cancerres.aacrjournals.org/content/34/10/2745.short

        I watched this video, and thanks. I was interested in a study mentioned in it. It was http://cancerres.aacrjournals.org/content/34/10/2745.full-text.pdf. In this study the admins took twelve newborn chimps and divided them into two groups of six. One group they fed only on milk from a dairy cow herd. The other got formula. Two of the six chimps in the first group died from what looks like the side-effects of leu...

          Okay, thanks for this question. Before I speak to this one, I did finish the study about constipation being caused by cow's milk. It really surprised me, because I've never had a problem with constipation, and I've been living about 93% on fluid milk products, cow milk and cow cream, for 11 years. I would think there are many people who could live on this diet that I've been living on without being constipated, since...

            I am reading one of the studies McDougall cites: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJM199810153391602. Here it looks like certain kids do respond to cow milk being more constipated than kids on soy milk. Although early in the study it mentions that the kids on soy milk showed other problems that the kids on cow milk don't have, so it may be that in losing one problem you gain another. I'll finish reading the...

              So I've re-watched about 23 minutes of the McDougall video so far. He does say in the beginning that dairy products are high-fat and hence promote obesity, cancer, and diabetes. I do want to point out that in my diet much of the milk I drink is either skim (non-fat), or 1% milk. I don't believe my diet is very high-fat. So the criticisms you have applied in this area may not apply to me or to others who follow the di...

                Well the internet says "milk has a pH of around 6.5 to 6.7, which makes it slightly acidic. Some sources cite milk as being neutral since it is so close to the neutral pH of 7.0". This study says that a vegan diet is better than certain other diets: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3565018/. But I don't think they tested the diet I have followed. It seems conceivable to me my diet is better yet. But...

                  I do wonder if the unusual diet I've been following 11 years might help cancer. For eleven years, I've lived perhaps 93% on fluid milk products, cow milk and cow cream. So on average, every day my diet is some kind of milk or milks--skim, 1%, 2%, whole--plus I sometimes buy pints of half-and-half or fluid whipping cream and drink them straight. In my case the diet helps with a pesky eye problem. I think for the sa...

                    I found a diet that helps me with eye pain. I tend to think that for the same reasons it helps with eye pain, it might help with cancer, although I don't know for sure. For about eight years now I have been living about 92% on cow milk and cow cream. So every day, 365/year, I drink various combinations of whole milk, 2%, 1%, and skim, then occasionally some half and half (half milk and half cream) and occasionally s...
