  1. This week I was recommended this video by kurtzgesagt: in a nutshell channel, it has millions of views about diary being poison or harmless. The information they give in this video is that the hormones in milk are so small there is no effect on humans but you have shown us from this research being different. This information needs to reach millions, so I'm gonna post this video in their comments, because kurtzgesagt are misinformed

  2. As a vegan myself, I completely believe in this data, but I struggle to mechanistically understand how the hormones are implicated. In school, I learned that ingested proteins, hormones in this case, are denatured and cleaved into dipeptides, tri-peptides, and free amino acids before they are absorbed by the small intestine and make their way into circulation. If this is the case, how exactly are these hormones more responsible for these adverse outcomes than protein intake from other sources? I’d guess that it has something to do with auxiliary compounds from the dairy or that the hormone digestion results in the accumulation of undesirable amino acid ratios that promote the observed effects, but I’m not sure.

  3. I seem to recall reading a previous study that stated that women who consume dairy products are more likely to conceive twins/multiples than women who abstain from dairy products, due to the hormones in milk. Is that shown to still be the case? This study seems to imply the opposite. Great video!

  4. Growing up and into my early 30's I prolly drank about a gallon of bovine secretions, most weeks, myself- because that's what we do right- omg… always had bad/horrible cycles and now (vegan7 years) no cow hormone intake plus hormones are naturally dropping as I age, so now I suffer from horrible HORRIBLE menopause symptoms hot flashes and night sweats so bad I feel like Im in an oven wrapped in plastic – like all day long flashes and heart palpitations and panic attacks and gut issues from hormone imbalance- I swear it's a disability! I have to get hormone replacement therapy just to be able to walk around not drenched in sweat. .. oddly enough it didn't help me loose weight either lol. I always assumed I was infertile… from the awful Menzies I had, I wanted my lady bits removed in high school. I mostly have bad stories of doctor visits… Thankful for someone looking out for the actual greater good and sharing it. Thanks Dr. Greger.

  5. So if you go all your life drinking cows milk then switch to being vegan and drink soy or other plant milk can you get pregnant then after stopping birth control pills and then having irregular periods to hardly any at all but no other diseases just diabetes and high cholesterol then and losing some weight slowly and being 34! Could you still have a baby then and father is healthy and 42 but both people on anti depression medication! And woman on insulin and diabetes medication!
    Asking for friend here not myself!
    Everything else on them as far as know is fairly healthy!

  6. I have a friend whom I suspect is sensitive to the hormones and estrogen in dairy. I became suspicious when she said one of her daughters has debilitating menstrual cramps. I remember a video where Dr. Barnard said milk and animal products can increase menstrual pain. Now I find out my friend hasn't had a proper menstrual cycle for about a year and a half. She's 48 so maybe that's normal? But when she goes to the doctor and asks if she's in menopause, they claim she isn't. So I'm wondering if she's getting a false positive because of all the junk she eats.

  7. Are there any links between animal products and hair loss? If so, could you do a video on that?
    Thank you for the amazing work, Dr. Greger & the team!

  8. Women currently struggling with fertility might want to stay away from these comments. This video in general is going to be hard, since they don’t know enough yet to help.

  9. Thank you Dr Greger, you are the king of epidoodiology I will pass the information onto my Swiss Grandmother who couldn’t have children because of her milk drinking culture. I’m going out now to buy some of this pant milk which has flooded the shelves in supermarket just in time of you telling us milk is bad.

  10. did the study take into account for lactose intolerance or antibodies? it is known that even in individuals without lactose intolerance, that dairy can be seen to the body as a reason to cause inflammation. i love cream, cheese and yogurt so this is super scary news!

  11. Can I simply just say what a comfort to find someone who genuinely knows what they are talking about over the internet. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people should check this out and understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular given that you surely have the gift.
