Breastmilk as a cancer treatment has been given real weight in the past couple years with the discovery of HAMLET (Human Alpha-lactalbumin Made Lethal to Tumour cells). This protein basically causes cancer cells to destroy themselves while leaving healthy cells in tact. Breastmilk has been given to chemo patients because of its high fat content, while being easy to digest. It helps keep calories in patients having a hard time doing so. But now there is research saying it is actually curing some cancers.
I dont know how the protein is administered in the trials (injections or just plain drinking the milk).
Would you be okay with drinking breastmilk or donating breastmilk to possibly cure a cancer?
I ask because I, personally, would be totally fine with it. But i am nursing my daughter right now with an oversupply, and have a friend that is going though chemo. I feel like i could help her, but i dont think she would receive the offer very well.

Sure, look at the stuff most people but into their bodies- I can't believe anyone would be scared of a little breast milk :)
