Many take matters into their own hands and at the first sound of the news ask for expressed breast milk donations for themselves or their loved ones battling cancer. Wouldn't you do the same? If you knew the cure for a disease killing your family members or friends, I am sure you would jump at the opportunity to get your hands on it. Perhaps this cancer fighting aid is cheaper and more accessible than cancer drugs with excessive side effects? I don't know, I am no doctor. But this just might be the only hope for many who can't afford expensive experimental treatments or do not want to be guinea pigs. Yes, it still has to be studied. But if you had cancer and saw an improvement in your friend with the same diagnosis who drank breast milk, would you wait for some 'authority' to tell you that it does indeed work? Check out the links below for more information, most of them essentially about the same episode:
