Perhaps there are many possible factors such as:

1. GROWTH HORMONES (GH) or somatotrophin and chicken prolactin/ovine prolactin administered by the poultry manufacturing industry in chickens, subsequently affects the pituitary gland to produce breast milk hormones (the fact that I've changed my diet from an Organic Raw Vegetarian to Semi Vegetarian which includes fish and poultry of non organic producers) which increase breast size in humans this would be chicken prolactin which increases the size of chickens and 'fattens' the chickens; (check out:

2. GLAND STIMULATION from SUCKING THE BREASTSduring love making. The blood flow stimulates the glands of the breasts.;

3. ENLARGED PITUITARY CONDITION -- The pituitary gland in addition to producing other hormones for glands like the adrenals (ACTH), growth hormones (GH), thryoid (TSH), follicles for hair (FSH), to name a few, also produces the prolactin hormone (PRL) for breast milk growth. An imbalance can cause a tumor in the Pituitary Gland called hyperprolactinaemia.

4. MEDICATIONS such as metoclopramide or thioridazine cause increased levels of the prolactin hormone;

5. DUCT ECTASIA in older women can increase milk secretion in the breasts.


What is the polarity of milk?

Milk is not a pure substance but rather is a colloid. The protein in it has bunches of peptide bonds but polar ends and would be both hydrophobic and hydrophilic, although the hydrophobic parts tend to curl into the middle of the protein's tertiary structure and hide from the water. The fat component is nonpolar with its solubility depending on how hydrogenated it was. The lactose is a sugar, so it is quite polar.

Can cream that has gone sour be used?

I like buttermilk and just sour milk, and it has never made me ill. Butter used to be made from cream that had gone sour, by churning to make the butterfat stick together into butter. The sour milk that was left is called "buttermilk" which I think tastes as good as yoghurt which is another form of sour milk. I just enjoyed a litre of full-cream raw milk that had gone sour about five hours ago. YumYum.

Whole Milk and Heavy Cream are very different in Nutritional Content.

Code of Federal Regulations, Title 21, Part 131 defines

Heavy cream (36% or more butterfat)

Half-and-Half (10.5 to 18% butterfat)

Whole milk (about 3.25 to 3.5% buttermilk).

Heavy cream has 50 gm more saturated fat than whole milk.

Heavy cream has 305 mg more Cholesterol than whole milk.

Does drinking milk help prevent dehydration?


If you think about it a young animal (human) can live of mother's milk as the sole form of food and water intake until they become weaned. Milk is perfectly balanced to give us all we need.

The fact that milk is 'isotonically' balanced also means it may be better than water in certain circumstances.
