I HAD PLANNED ON TAKING TODAY OFF
Last night, I made a resolution to work harder this year.
Each time I go the extra yard in helping somebody, I create
a tiny ripple in an enormous ocean. Please observe closely
the next time you throw a rock into a lake or ocean. It's
always a bulls-eye! Create enough ripples, and one makes
waves. Resolve to make waves. Together we can erode
ignorance, and change our landscape for the better.
Early this New Year's morning I received this letter from a
reader (name and EMAIL address withheld):
"What is your opinion of Transfer Factor? It is our
understanding that it is not colostrum— just the factor from
colostrum that builds the immune system. I am a vegan and
make my own soymilk, but I have been taking Transfer Factor
and have not had a cold, flu or such "bugs" since I have
been on it. People mention the madcow disease, etc just
because it does come from milk. I have been on the fence
about it but since I have had so much better health taking
it, I continue to take it. Thanks for any words of wisdom
that you have."
Transfer factor is a substance found in colostrum. It works,
and that is the problem.
When a mother gives birth to her infant, her mammary glands
produce a pre-milk formula called colostrum. Cows, dogs,
sheep, humans... all mammals produce their own "perfect
formula" which provides disease- preventing immunological
factors and hormones which promote growth. Colostrum is
super-saturated with hormones.
Each hormone regulates one or more of the thousands of
metabolic processes occurring every second inside of the
human body. Some hormones regulate cellular metabolism.
Vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin, is actually a steroid
hormone. In the 1850's, scientists first recognized that the
thyroid gland produced a substance which regulated
metabolism. A decade later, it was noted that the pancreas
acted as a gland, secreting a substance that would later be
identified as insulin. Hormones are chemical messengers.
There is a group of protein hormones that regulate growth.
These protein hormones (made up of amino acids) instruct
cells to grow. The first one of these to be discovered was
appropriately named 'Human Growth Hormone'(hGH) or human
somatotropin(hST). Dogs have canine somatotropin CST/CGH,
pigs have porcine somatotropin (pST/pGH) and cows have
bovine somatotropin (bST/bGH). Human Growth hormone was
discovered just before World War II. It was so named because
of what it did: promoted cellular proliferation and growth.
Two decades after GH was discovered, an even more powerful
growth factor was found. IGF-I Insulin-like growth
factor(IGF-I) received its name because its structure
resembled that of insulin. However, its function is nothing
like insulin. Had IGF-I been discovered before GH, it would
have received that name. IGF-I is much more powerful than
GH. IGF-I is the most powerful growth hormone known to
A MIRACLE OF NATURE
IGF-I, the most POWERFUL growth hormone in the human body,
is identical between humans and cows.
DOES TRANSFER FACTOR WORK?
Manufacturers and multi-level marketing sales persons call
colostrum and transfer factor the ultimate anti-aging
formulas. They claim that their formula removes wrinkles and
promote athletic endurance. They repair muscle tears and
promote nerve growth.
ARE THE CLAIMS ACCURATE?
YES! Colostrum works. IGF-I works. Transfer factor works!.
WHAT ELSE CAN TRANSFER FACTOR DO FOR YOU?
Hormones do not discriminate. Transfer factor's major
component is IGF-I, the most powerful growth hormone and
cellular proliferator. When IGF-I is produced naturally, it
loses its potency (by attaching to receptor proteins or by
being broken down into its basic components) in less than 30
seconds. In colostrum or transfer factor, IGF-I can
"survive" for 30 minutes.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN IGF-I IN COLOSTRUM OR TRANSFER FACTOR
FINDS AN EXISTING CANCER?
Infants are not usually born with cancers. Cancers are quite
common in adults, but normally controlled by our immune
THE MISSING LINK-CANCER IS COMMON, WAITING TO GROW
On November 8, 1994 the New York Times reported the results
of an autopsy study on pre-mature deaths (page C-1, Gina
The study revealed that nearly 40% of women between the ages
of 40 and 50 have breast cancer and virtually all adults
over the age of 50 have some form of cancer.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR A CANCER TO GROW?
Every cancer begins with one cell. That cell doubles, on
average, every ninety days. After three months, it is two
cells. After six months, four. After one year, the cancer is
16 cells in size.
After twenty cycles, or doublings, that cancer will grow to
one million cells, which is the tiniest lump a woman can
feel in her breast. It can take 8-10 years for a cancer to
be clinically diagnosed. Somewhere along that timeline, the
cancer stops growing, usually suppressed by the immune
system's tight genetic controls.
SOMETHING MAKES CANCER GROW
IGF-I has been called the key factor in the growth and
proliferation of breast and prostate cancers.
WOULD YOU TAKE A SUBSTANCE CONTAINING THE KEY FACTOR TO
Remove wrinkles from your face or get an extra burst of
energy and you might very well be lighting the fuse for your
future cancer diagnosis. Transfer factor works. Colostrum
works. There is no debate. They might very well work too
well. Take transfer factor or colostrum today and in ten
years you might not make the connection between today's
phenomenal growth product and tomorrow's not-so phenomenal
