I came upon this story about a woman who donated her breast milk to her cancer-stricken father in the belief that it has cancer cell killing
Georgia Browne, who recently gave birth to baby Monty, has been supplying her father Tim with her milk in a pretty unorthodox (in my opinion) effort
to combat his liver and colon cancer. She expresses the milk and her dad then puts it on his cornflakes in the morning:
To quote Tim Browne - "If i have a lactating daughter, why not take advantage of her, as long as Monty didnt mind."
Then there is the case of Sonia Ortiz-Allen who similarly has tried to help her dad fight his prostate and bladder cancer by providing him with her
breast milk. Shockingly, in this instance her father drinks it directly from her breast! Here is the only link i could dig up on it:
Indeed, there has been research that breast milk contains a substance called HAMLET (Human Alphalactalbumin Made LEthal to Tumour cells) which breaks
down and kills the cancer cells, but im not sure of the effectiveness of this substance.
To be honest, i take all reports that refer to breast milk as a panacea for all manner of diseases and conditions with a pinch of salt. It seems to be
fashionable to promote breastfeeding these days and it wouldnt surprise me if scientists have shoehorned in their research data to fit whatever theory
they want to promote.
Anyway, these stories jar at my morals. Im not in these peoples positions so im not really qualified to judge them, but their accounts caused me to
raise my eyebrows a bit. I suppose, in a way, there is not much difference between a mother feeding her child and a mother feeding her father, they
are both family members, but even so!
