Why would a woman leak breast milk if she's not pregnant?

User Avatar
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: http://www.freepatentsonline.com/5053391.html) 2. GLAND STIMULATION from SUCKING THE BREASTS during 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?

User Avatar
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.

They won't die from drinking milk, but dogs should not consume too much diary products as it can upset their stomach, since they find it difficult to digest.

What to do with cow's milk after milking the cow?

User Avatar
You could drink it, churn it into butter or cheese, make ice cream from it, give it to some calves you are looking after, sell it to other people, etc. Also, it goes great with strawberries and bananas tossed into the blender.

Asked in Food & Cooking, Food Safety, Milk

Can cream that has gone sour be used?

User Avatar
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.

Is whole milk the same as full cream milk?

User Avatar
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). Below is a comparison between one cup Whole Milk and one cup Heavy Cream Heavy cream has 679 more calories than whole milk. Heavy cream has 81 gm more fat than whole milk. Heavy cream has 50 gm more saturated fat than whole milk. Heavy cream has 305 mg more Cholesterol than whole milk. Whole Milk has 5 grams more Carbohydrates than Heavy Cream. Whole Milk has 12 grams more Total Sugar than Heavy Cream. 1 cup Whole Milk equals 149 Calories; 48% Calories comes from fat; 8 grams Fat; 5 grams Saturated Fat; 24 mg Cholesterol; 12 grams Carbohydrates; 12 grams Total Sugars Whole milk contains about 3.5% buttermilk. 1 cup Heavy Cream equals 828 Calories; 97% Calories comes from fat; 89 grams Fat; 55 grams Saturated Fat; 329 mg Cholesterol; 7 grams Carbohydrates; trace Total Sugars Heavy cream has at least 36% butterfat and can easily be whipped. The higher the butterfat content, the less beating is required to get whipped cream "In the UK, full cream milk is the same as whole milk. Whole milk/full cream milk comes in a silver-topped glass pint bottle, or a blue topped plastic bottle." Response by Dr. Frank, RD, LDN (registered dietitian and licensed dietitian and nutritionist): In the United States, Whole Milk and Heavy Cream are very Different.

Asked in Health, Milk

Does drinking milk help prevent dehydration?

User Avatar
Yes. 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. See the related link below for more info.

How does bacteria affect the pH in milk?

User Avatar
Bacteria in milk causes milk to sour by changing lactose to lactic acid. This causes the pH to drop and once the pH drops low enough, the proteins in the milk will curdle.

Asked in Milk

Why heat milk or cream before adding to cream soup?

User Avatar
Never heard of it as a Chef but to guess I would say to stop curdling of the milk or cream but the best way to do this is to make sure that the soup has cooled to a least 80 degrees Celsius before adding the dairy product to prevent curdling same should be applied to pasta before adding the cheese at the end to prevent splitting (pardon ignorance if wrong) assuming has been made from scratch and not a can, if from a can still would be to prevent splitting (curdling) but same principle should be applied that you should gentlely heat the milk to before boiling point and not actual bring to the boil.
