Goat Milk/ Goat Cheese


I read somewhere that the casein in goat milk was different than cows milk so it's not dangerous for bc. I cannot find the article now though.  I really love goat cheese, and goat kefir. So if anyone comes across any info about this- please post it. I'd really appreciate it. Also I've heard that cow's are the most likely to be injected w/ hormones and antibiotics, so I've already stopped eating cow dairy. Please share your knowledge about these two different kinds of dairy.

    I'm not sure about the difference between goat cheese and products made from cow's milk, but I did make the switch to organic dairy. I, too, read that they pump the cows full of hormones to increase their milk production. Scary for us hormone positive ladies!

    gary null has said that the protein molecules in goat's milk are more suitable for humans because of their smaller size.  I use only organic dairy, still too much........

    Goat milk/goat cheese is better than cow milk/cow cheese.

    I suspect that neither is great immediately during/after a cancer diagnosis.

    With a little more distance out, goat yogurt/kefir is my choice. I drink goat kefir with flax oil daily, or eat goat yogurt. Always go for organic and/or hormone/antibiotic-free whenever possible. I try to avoid cheese except as a special treat (small amount of organic parmesan on pasta, or goat cheese in a large green/beet salad, or awesome raw cheese if served at a restaurant), and I avoid milk almost entirely.

    I wish raw dairy were more readily available in my area. The Organic Valley "raw" cheese is actually heat-treated to just below pasteurization point, so it's not like eating truly untreated raw cheese:

    My Chinese Herbalist Dr...Dr. Wong...said that goat cheese and goat milk is actually very very good for breast cancer...he said it's very alkaline and healing.
