fresh milk
too bad that most women that can give that to you have somebody else in line for that opportunity

That was me and my first boyfriend. I started young. He was an older man but he adored me.
Cant believe I exposed my breasts on here!

Pardon me for pouring ice on this rapidly engorging thread, but I just couldn't let this fallacy slide...

Completely wrong! This is seriously a doctor saying this???

Mammary glands evolved from the apocrine sweat glands found in both sexes among mammals and their ancestors, and so both sexes possess a full complement of FUNCTIONAL milk ducts. The only reason women's breasts are larger is fatty deposits. Of course, under normal conditions men would never produce sufficient levels of estrogen to stimulate lactation, nor would it be healthy for them to.

And just so y'all don't think I'm pulling your...nipples, here's a brief entry from Wikipedia on this topic:

The phenomenon of male lactation in humans has become more common in recent years due to the use of medications that stimulate a human male's mammary glands. Though human males have nipples, it is not so often understood that they also have mammary glands. Ordinarily the mammary tissue is low in volume and cannot be noticed. Under the appropriate hormonal stimulus -- the hormonal stimulus that nature provides to human females when they become pregnant and give birth -- the mammary glands of human males can also produce milk. The volume of milk produced will be small relative to the amount that a female can produce.

The most common circumstance under which lactation is induced is when hormonal treatments are given to men suffering from prostate cancer. Female hormones are used to retard the production of cancerous prostate tissue, but the same hormones also stimulate the mammary glands. Male-to-female transsexuals may also produce milk due to the hormones they take to reshape their bodies. Extreme stress has also been known to be a cause of male lactation, as evidenced by American POWs returning from the Korean and Vietnam Wars, where physical activities were demanding and food was in short supply.

It is also possible for males (and females) to induce lactation through constant massage and simulated 'sucking' of the nipple over a long period of time (months).

The phenomenon of male lactation occurs in some non-human species, and the lactating males may assist in the nursing of their infants. One species of fruit bat (Dyacopterus spadiceus) is notable for this reason. According to several sources, male lactation and even nursing have occasionally been observed in humans.

Fackelmann, K.A.; Science News, 145:148, 1994.

Hmmm..."massage and 'simulated' sucking"...hmmm...now how would one 'simulate' sucking? You're either sucking or you're not, aren't you?

Probably no one should answer that.

The original post reminds me of a book my sister gave me by Dr Karl whatshisname who answers many myths and legends. Fascinating reading.

It's a question that has united Aristotle, Darwin and my three-year-old in puzzlement: what exactly are male nipples for ? This week, the charity Fathers Direct came up with an answer, courtesy of some research it unearthed about a nomadic tribe of African hunter-gatherers. The answer, it seems, is the one my three-year-old (and Darwin, to be fair) suspected all along: male nipples are there as a stand-in for when mum isn't around and there's a squawking bambino in dire need of something to suck.

Yes, it's very sweet. Sweeter than cows milk.

I wonder if husbands of lactating women secretly have tasted it once too.

they talked about this book on the Today Show this morning

Why does asparagus make my pee stink?
New book offers answers to 'hundreds of questions you'd only ask a doctor after your third martini.' Read an excerpt

Updated: 10:00 a.m. ET Aug. 4, 2005


Have you ever wanted to ask your doctor about some of the oddities of your body, but didn’t have the guts or the time to do so? Well, now’s your chance to get some factual and funny answers to those questions you’ve pondered. From Pop Rocks to bellybuttons, nipples to knuckles, Mark Leyner and Dr. Billy Goldberg, have all the answers in a new book called, "Why Do Men Have Nipples?” The two authors were invited to discuss the book on “Today.” Here’s an excerpt:

YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT
It's 10 p.m., and my partner in writing and crime, Mark Leyner, and I are late as usual, but the party is in full swing. We brought a bottle of Don Julio tequila, which Leyner sampled voraciously in the cab, insisting that it needed to be screened for industrial toxins. We enter the elegantly appointed Park Avenue home of Eloise Cameron, a philanthropist, patron of the arts, and Botox junkie. Hors d'oeuvres are being served and the slightly inebriated and flush-faced Leyner grabs a mouthful of Swedish meatballs, proceeds to kiss our hostess, and then comments, "Eloise, baby, better lay off the collagen. Kissing those lips is like making out with the Michelin man." She attempts to smirk with disdain, but the Botox leaves her face impassive.

I corral Leyner and we proceed into the living room. No sooner have we entered when I'm embraced from behind. I turn around and it's Jeremy Burns, an investment banker who sits two rows behind me at the Knicks games. Jeremy is well known to the Madison Square Garden food vendors for his insatiable appetite for hot dogs, cotton candy, and beer. He is now almost unrecognizable in his new Atkins-induced skeletonlike state. "Who exhumed you?" Leyner belches. I am overcome by embarrassment but secretly wetting myself with laughter. Jeremy tries to sidestep Leyner and as their arms brush, Leyner is covered with the grease that now oozes from Jeremy's pores. Leyner whispers to me, "This dude is all greased up like a rectal thermometer." I push Leyner away and he uses this opportunity to sneak over to the bar for another blast of Don Julio. I am left with Jeremy and his insufferable stories about life on the meat and fat diet, and a million medical questions about food.

If we are what we eat, why do we know so little about food and nutrition?

DOES IT REALLY TAKE SEVEN YEARS TO DIGEST CHEWING GUM?
What is it with seven years? You break a mirror, seven years of bad luck. Each dog year is seven human years. Seven years to digest swallowed gum? What if a dog broke a mirror then swallowed a pack of gum? Sounds like an algebra problem.

Chewing gum is not digestible, but it definitely doesn't sit in your stomach for years. Gum actually might help things move through the bowels faster. Sorbitol is sometimes used as a sweetener in gum and this can act as a laxative. What does this mean? Yes, if you look carefully, you should see it floating next to all of those lovely yellow corn kernels.

WHY DOES YOUR PEE SMELL WHEN YOU EAT ASPARAGUS?
Asparagus contains a sulfur compound called mercaptan. It is also found in onions, garlic, rotten eggs, and in the secretions of skunks. The signature smell occurs when this substance is broken down in your digestive system. Not all people have the gene for the enzyme that breaks down mercaptan, so some of you can eat all the asparagus you want without stinking up the place. One study published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology found that only 46 percent of British people tested produced the odor while 100 percent of French people tested did.

WHAT CAUSES AN ICE CREAM HEADACHE?
Aaaah, the joy of a Popsicle on a hot summer day. One theory places the source for the brain freeze in the sinuses, where the pain may be caused by the rapid cooling of air in the frontal sinuses. This triggers local pain receptors.

Another theory postulates that the constriction of blood vessels in the roof and rear of the mouth causes pain receptors to overload and refer the pain to your head. There is a nerve center there, in the back of your mouth, called the sphenopalatine ganglion, and this is the most likely source of the dreaded ice cream headache.

A friend of ours suggested a quick cure of rapidly rubbing your tongue on the roof of your mouth to warm it up. Her demonstration included a bizarre clucking sound. Leyner tried this and found himself followed by a large goose of whom he seems to have become inordinately fond.

lol. Here in Mali they do a clucking sound in the back of the throat to indicate agreement with what the other person is saying. I can't do it very well, but maybe this is incentive to learn.
