Drink More Milk and Fight Colon Cancer

By on October 4, 2012

Good news for milk lovers! A new study published in the journal of Dairy Science finds that milk  consumption can reduce the risks of diabetes and metabolic syndrome and even  colon cancer. A milk protein has been identified that significantly reduces the growth of colon cancer cells over time by prolonging the period of the cell cycle before chromosomes are replicated.

Lead investigators from  the University of Lund inSweden, reported treatment with Lfcin4-14 reduced DNA damage in colon cancer cells exposed to ultraviolet light.

“We previously hypothesized that the prolongation of the cell cycle in colon cancer cells as a result of Lfcin4-14 treatment may give the cells extra time for DNA repair,” Oredsson said in a statement. “Indeed, UV light-induced damage was decreased in colon cancer cells treated with Lfcin4-14 compared with controls. The differences were small but significant.”

To understand the mechanism by which Lfcin4-14 reduced DNA damage, investigators evaluated the levels of several proteins involved in cell cycle progression, DNA repair and cell death.

According to the National Dairy Council, milk is filled with nine essential  nutrients that benefit our health:

  • Calcium: Builds healthy bones and teeth; maintains  bone mass
  • Protein: Serves as a source of energy; builds/repairs  muscle tissue
  • Potassium: Helps maintain a healthy blood  pressure
  • Phosphorus: Helps strengthen bones and generate  energy
  • Vitamin D: Helps maintain bones
  • Vitamin B12: Maintains healthy red blood cells and  nerve tissue
  • Vitamin A: Maintains the immune system; helps maintain  normal vision and skin
  • Riboflavin (B2): Converts food into energy
  • Niacin: Metabolizes sugars and fatty acids

Because Milk has natural sugar called lactate, too much of the product (like  too much of almost anything) is not good for you. However doctors recommend at  least two cups a day, one with breakfast and one with dinner.

“These changes support our hypothesis that Lfcin4-14 treatment resulted in increased DNA repair,” Oredsson said. “Our data suggest that the effects of Lfcin4-14 in prolonging the cell cycle may contribute to the cancer preventive effect of milk.”
