In a Netflix docu-series titled (Un)Nicely, launched earlier this yr, a bodybuilder and a most cancers survivor make an attention-grabbing revelation — each of them say they drink human breast milk, including the way it has boosted their well being.
Whereas bodybuilder Jameson ‘JJ’ Ritenour considers breast milk to be a pure complement for weight reduction and muscle mass development, prostate most cancers survivor Howard Cohen believes it has saved the life-threatening illness at bay.
Ritenour and Cohen aren’t precisely exceptions. There was some demand for breast milk amongst adults, resulting in a profitable on-line market primarily, within the West.
In a 2015 research revealed within the journal The Royal Society of Drugs, researcher Sarah Steele writes, “While breast milk has long been promoted as optimal for infant nutrition, among CrossFit, BodyBuilding, Palaeo and other fitness communities, fetishists, chronic disease sufferers and even foodies, breast milk is in demand. In the UK, breast milk ice cream is for sale. In the USA, a lollypop company sells a breast milk-flavoured sweet. Primarily, though, the milk is sold in its raw state, ready to drink.”
