Google Aze ...

High protein diets increase cancer risk via IGF-1

This might be interesting news for people on Paleo diets. High animal protein diets were linked to a 400% increased cancer risk in people aged 50-65. They also experienced a 75% increase in mortality. The high animal protein diets also led to a 500% increase in diabetes mortality regardless of age.

goats milk?

any thoughts. I am dairy free. I hate the taste. But I saw some lady on youtube who claimed it helped her MS. I know it has selenium, helps with copper absorption, and is similar to human milk. I think being dairy free has been central to my good health. I follow the Swank diet by limited animal fats (not oils or healthy fats so much). Anybody drink this stuff?
