Estrogens in cows' milk are unlikely to pose a threat to adult health
(European Society of Endocrinology) Estrogens found naturally in cows' milk are likely to be safe for consumption in adults, according to a new review published in the European Journal of Endocrinology. The review brings together scientific evidence in rodent and human studies that examined the effects of ingesting estrogen-containing cows' milk on fertility and the risk of cancer development. The findings suggest that the levels of estrogens found in milk are too low to pose health risks to adults. (Source: EurekAlert! - Social and Behavioral Science)

Researchers Find Link Between Height And Cancer Risk
BOSTON (CBS) – Here’s a situation when size matters. A researcher at the University of California finds that taller people are more likely to develop cancer. Previous research has found an association between greater height and cancer risk, but this study shows that height itself is responsible. Taller people simply have more cells in their body. More cells means more opportunity for mutations and the abnormal cell division that leads to cancer. The researcher found that for every four inches or so above average height there was about a 10-percent higher risk of cancer. The average height for women is 5 foot 4 ...
