AR-News: Consuming Dairy For Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

Post menopausal women sometimes take steroid horomones to
replace what their bodies no longer manufacture. This is
called hormonal replacement therapy (HRT). Female toddlers
also take steroid hormones to replace those naturally
occurring chemicals that have not yet been internally
secreted within their own immature female bodies. Should
little girls be on HRT?

Every sip of cow's milk contains steroid hormones, according
to endocrinologist Clark Grosvenor, who published a list of
59 different hormones found in cow's milk in the Journal of
Endocrine Reviews in 1992.

In her entire lifetime, the average human female
manufactures the equivalent of one-half tablespoon of
estrogen, so it takes only billionths of a gram to exert
powerful behavioral and physiological effects.
