Millions, possibly billions, of people have come to believe what is essentially a conspiracy theory, generating fear and misunderstanding about a whole class of technologies on an unprecedentedly global scale. This matters enormously because these technologies — in particular the various uses of molecular biology to enhance plant breeding potential — are clearly some of our most important tools for addressing food security and future environmental change. This is what has happened with the GMOs food scare in Europe, Africa and many other parts of the world.
To see any graphs, charts, graphics, images, and quotes to which Dr. Greger may be referring, watch the above video. First of all, do these bovine casomorphins form in the human digestive tract when we drink milk?
But, this study was on infants, who naturally have leakier guts. Do fully intact casein-protein fragments make it into the bloodstream after infancy? Yes, even into adulthood, elevating levels in the blood for at least eight hours after consumption. And, those with autism may have an especially leaky gut—at significantly higher risk for abnormally high intestinal permeability, which may explain why the vast majority of autistic children may have antibodies in their blood to wheat and dairy proteins, compared to a small minority of normal children.
When you examine the brain tissues of those with autism, their blood-brain barrier seems leakier, too. Okay, then, why are casomorphins associated with disease?
Well, this is normal and natural. Human infants with evidence of higher baseline levels of bovine casomorphins in their blood seem more likely to be suffering from psychomotor delay, which is a measure of muscle, language, and mental function development.
But the reverse was found for human infant exposure to human casomorphins—meaning human casomorphins appeared to be beneficial in humans.
Both human and bovine [casomorphins]…interact with opioid and serotonin receptors, which are known to be of great importance for [brain] maturation. This can, therefore, help explain not only why breast is best, but the psychomotor delay linked with higher bovine casomorphin levels in the blood supports this concept that cow casomorphins may play a role in a disease such as autism.
Put A1 milk in a test tube with some digestive enzymes, and the A1 casein breaks down into casomorphin.
But, because of that amino acid difference, the A2 casein breaks down at a different spot. And so, no casomorphin is formed.
But, this was using digestive enzymes from pigs, or cows, which are just cheaper and easier to buy for laboratory experiments. But human digestive juices are different. But, the A1 versus A2 breakdown experiment had never been performed with human enzymes before, until…now.
Human stomach and intestinal juices were collected, and the devil was in both. The opioid casomorphin was produced from both A1 and A2 milk.
So, A2 milk may be better for this Babe, but not necessarily for this one.Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future Summary of the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.
