Milk fractures and mortality

I think your right, I read awhile back people do lie on self reporting exams to make their selves look/feel better. What would be a better study? Can you give an example please?

Milk fractures and mortality

I understand what your saying, but I'm a sample size of 1. The study in question had a sample size of over 100k.

"Two large Swedish cohorts, one with 61 433 women (39-74 years at baseline 1987-90) and one with 45 339 men (45-79 years at baseline 1997),"

Why are observational studies that rely on the memories of participants for food intake next to useless?

I had no idea what I would find. Here's my exact search:

I saw the awards and figured sciencedaily was a good site. Apparently I was wrong.

I think what your typing is that experimental studies are superior to observational studies.

"residual confounding and reverse causation phenomena"

I wouldn't exactly call that plain English.

I read the part you quoted, and it confused me. Then, I looked up the reputation of sciencedaily.com.

Since the site got good reviews, I concluded that the study must be worthwhile or else sciencedaily would have never have published.

Hmmm, in college professors were so happy that students actually used a peer reviewed scholarly journal that I would have gotten an A or B if I used this source in a term paper.

Perhaps my teachers failed me by allowing me cite sources from observational studies. Your expecting more of me than my college professors did on term papers.

Lactose doesn't seem the fastest acting sugar:

Glycemic index: 46

http://www.carbs-information.com/glyc...

Glycemic load: 5

www.carbs-information.com/glycemic-lo...

Glycemic load is index, 46 * (carbohydrates per serving - fiber) /100 = 46 * 13/100 = 5.98Glycemic load.

I got the 13g per serving from:

"but 3X does not mean 3X the benefit." JTPhilly

I like the way you think. A lot of people seem to think the more milk the better. I know somebody's livejournal I was reading who was drinking a gallon of milk per day, and then had a heart attack.

I think some people feel milk was the perfect food and you should drink as much as possible. My college nutrition professor encouraged me to drink more milk.

http://www.bmj.com/content/349/bmj.g6015

If you look at the above link you'll find D-galactose is likely the culprit.

http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/d...

Whole milk has a good amount of saturated fat and sugar. Nearly half the calories are from fat. Lactose is a sugar.

"14% of american men will be diagnosed with this cancer" hotoynoodle

Source of information please.

"Lifetime Risk of Developing Cancer: Approximately 14.0 percent of men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point during their lifetime, based on 2010-2012 data." seer.cancer.gov

source: http://seer.cancer.gov/statfacts/html...

incident case definition:

http://cliomods.stanford.edu/trailmap...

Here's my perception: 14% of men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer over the entire course of their lives.

Incident case means new cases, during the study 1012 incident cases. Meaning new cases. The study was done for 11 years not an entire lifetime in my eyes this matches up.

Another note, look at the full text and the sources for the study:

Basically what I'm understanding is IGF-1 significantly increases cancer risk and IGF-1 is present in rBGH cows. The million dollar question is does consuming rBGH cow's milk increase blood IGF-1? Also, what foods raise or lower IGF-1?

McDougall claims he has the answers:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mHYFO...

"Some studies have shown that adults who drink milk have about 10% higher levels of IGF-1 in their blood than those who drink little or no milk. But this same finding has also been reported in people who drink soy milk." cancer.org

I am finding out where science stands on diet, health, and cancer.

I have a long list of scientifically supported facts. I am constantly adding to the list.

I. Antioxidants

A. Lycopene http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25...
B. Beta-carotene http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10...

II. Fiber

III. fat, obesity, and cancer

IV. IGF-1

V. Nutritional density

I wouldn't expect you to take on my beliefs nor want you to just based on my opinion. Yet, I would like it if you considered the scientific facts. Give the above scientific evidence I think its clear that diet plays a major part in the prevention of cancer. We don't have to be helpless victims.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/01/bus...

Its interesting that Japan, south Korea, and the European Union would take such a harsh stance against GMOs. I'm going to re-read that quackwatch article.

http://www.quackwatch.org/03HealthPro...

I was talking to somebody and he/she that GMOs kill people. Also the product in question isn't tested. Yet, the evidence points to the contrary. Finally said person stated that a bunch of digestive disorders developed at the same time as GMOs. Which of course is just correlation not causation.

The quackwatch links seem broken. I tried them all either they just lead to a generic home page or are broken.

I find it less stressful to research the big C word, then act like it isn't there. Think Harry Potter, and he who shall not be named. By never talking or thinking about cancer you are giving cancer even more power.

That's why if there is a food answer I will attempt to find it. Already we know antioxidants scatter free radicals. Lots of events causes cancer, yet a much narrower list helps prevent it.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/artic...

antioxidants like beta-carotene:

Argh, I can't find a reliable source to see if your right Gourmanda and Ttrockwood. Wikipedia is bad, and the pcrm.org though looking legitimate is the same as the one selling Neal Barnard's DvD the same Barnard from Fork Over Knives.

Makes me wonder why its so hard to figure out where the subsidies are going to. I even tried Google scholar, couldn't find anything. Maybe, I'm just tired.

I did find this about farm subsidies:

I found a website claiming they know the % of agricultural subsidies. I don't mean to imply I don't believe you. Its just proof make a stronger case.

The above site's source:

http://www.pcrm.org/health/reports/ag...

Still need a peer reviewed journal to know if the meat and dairy industry are subsidized or not.

Did not know that brentk. Your right those huge trucks that come barreling down the road at 50+ MPH shaking my computer are a lot bigger than pickup trucks. Half the time I think I heard thunder, its a semi-trailer. Still, its 3,000 miles from California to the east coast. Even further for Australia and China.

I just can't see it being more efficient even with semi-trailers to travel 3,000+ miles.

I've read about the large transportation cost of fish. It takes a lot of resources to transport fish from industrial trawlers in the middle of the ocean to port.
