I've got a friend who has D cup breasts. Now she drinks milk almost everyday, not sure how much though. Now a month or so ago I felt her breast and then I felt them last week and, my god, I think they got bigger. Since she drinks alot of milk its become a running gag to blame it on the milk. But is it really the milk???
Does milk encourage breast growth!?
Can the internet not spell "lose" right?
Milk is mainly fat and water so too much will make all of your body bigger.
There is some evidence to suggest that the younger a girl is when she first breast feeds, the less likely she is to get breast cancer.
I'm here therefore I belong
Milk is not going to make your breasts bigger. The only thing that will is genetics or surgery.
~*~Smile, it's the second best thing you can do with your mouth.~*~
Your friend's probably just growing, drinking milk has nothing to do with it. It will give her stronger bones though
Oh ok then. I just wanted to be sure :grin:
Guess we'll still blame it on the milk for fun though.

no dear, protein encourages breast growth
people may say because of the hormones they inject the cows with that they will get into the milk and cause growth and all that stuff. its not true. trace amounts do get in of certain growth hormones, and the same happens with certain meat products. the amounts r just to small to do anything though. actually the antibiotics that slip in do bigger harm then the hormones, studies show they may even slightly supress the immune system. anyways protein will only help the pectoral musccles grow if excercised but wont really induce any breast growth, but yes fat and water and calories in general can have people grow all around. not just the breasts but everywhere.
to add onto jamesters comment, i agree 100% until he mentions that fact that such a case does NOT lead to early breast development.
Hormonal additives have been linked to early development of females and a trend toward feminization of males. The levels of the hormones are small yes, but there nonetheless and over time these hormones have a reaction.
Hormones are messengers to the body for regulation of bodily functions (homeostasis) as well as development for secondary sexual characteristics (breasts in females for example). When a foreign hormone enters the body it may trigger the complementary human receptor cell to become active and begin the hormones desired effect. in this case it is secondary sex trait development.
Normally a child's hypothalamus and Anterior Pituitary Gland do not secrete these hormones until around the age of 10-12. When these bovine hormones are present in milk the process starts immeadiately on a very small scale. These hormones do have negative feed-back controls so the body does recognize something out of the ordinary is happening and does stop it from continueing but there is always a short time frame were minimal progress is made before nature intended. And when you consume these hormones regularly over a decade a female is at risk to develope early.
This is not to say every female will develop early, although statistics have proven females are nowaadays, but there is always the risk.
Another problem associated with these bovine hormones is the slow feminization of males. Studies have shown that there have been an increase in cases in which there are undescended testicles, or tesicles which develop slower then on average. The effects of this are not nearly as drastic as what we see in the developing female population but it is still an interesting note to leave you on!
keep on rockin, milk builds strong bones!
silk may encourage breast growth due to all the feminine hormones, but I'm not sure about milk.
yeah, you never seen the milk with the name brand silk?
UMMM Maybe I have. I thought you were talking about the material silk and was thinking wtf has he been smoking.
There are phytoestrogens in soy milk, but I'm not sure how effective they are.
In reply to:
wtf has he been smoking
hehe. I love that saying. I've heard that drinking a lot of silk is bad for a guy in some way or another... myth perhaps?
This thread inspired me to spend a while researching this, and you guys are right. The hormones in milk do not appear to be suspect.
It looks more like other chemicals in the environment- DDT and chemicals in plastics have been correlated to early puberty in girls.
Now, keep in mind, Monsanto, a colossal drug company, created rBGH, recombinant bovine growth hormone, which boosts milk production 10-20%, but at considerate risk to the cow's health. The United states is one of the only countries using it.
When large companies don't want you to hear something, why, you don't. Want some proof? Ok. Did you know the Wachowski brothers were sued for stealing the story to the matrix- and lost? Time Warner owns just about every news outlet you see in a day. Now, here's your proof: google "Wachowski brothers lawsuit"- you'll get a ton of hits. Now go up to the top and click on "news", which should get you any relevant news items on the subject. There are none. Zero. Zippo. Interesting?
What does DDT stand for?
I read half of it and I actually went cross-eyed. lol. Thanks for the link SDP.
Let me put on my smartass cap.
There we go.
As a veteran member with over 4000 posts and a college student as well, senor websexinfo, I would think it would be in your benefit to, rather than bother to post "What does DDT stand for?", to take a brief moment to think:
what if I googled this?
And post, rather than the question many other people might be wondering, the answer...
This, it seems, would be more in line with your nym, and a level of inquisitiveness more suiting a college student.
\[bowing to veteran member\]
heheh, the thought to google it did cross my mind but ya know how that works. Keep bowing though, I like it.
