In a recent trend, grown men have been drinking breast milk due to purported health benefits.
NY Magazine interviewed a few men who have been subscribing to this health drink to give them energy and to ward off infections.
One athlete claims that his energy was at an all-time high after drinking breast milk. Another man claims that breast milk helped stave off the nausea from chemotherapy.
While some of us may balk at the thought, this practice is apparently not new. Adults in China have actually been using breast milk as a way to cure themselves of illnesses and infections.
Breast milk has a lot of proven benefits for infants and children, but the benefits to adults is relatively unknown. While breast milk is known to fight infections in infants, experts warn of the presence of potential environmental chemicals, especially as milk is purchased from unknown and underground sources.
