Cancer-causing pathogen discovered in cow's milk

Cancer-causing pathogen discovered in cow's milk image

A potentially dangerous pathogen has been discovered in cow's milk—and mothers have been warned not to use the milk for supplementary feeding, especially if their infant is less than a year old.

The pathogen, BMMF (bovine milk and meat factors), could cause cancer, and small children with immature immune systems are especially vulnerable.

BMMF is in all cow's milk products, such as cheese and yoghurt, and health agencies should be alerting the public about over-consumption of dairy products, say researchers from the Max Rubiner Institute in Germany.

Although BMMF has been recognised as being a possible carcinogen, or cancer-causing agent, it hasn't been established that this happens in people, and more research needs to be done urgently, the researchers say.

There is no guidance about the over-consumption of cow's milk products—in fact, most health agencies see it as a healthy option—but this needs to be revised with the discovery of the pathogen, the researchers say.
