estradiol in goat's milk vs. cow's milk?

Are dairy products a problem for people with breast cancer history or those currently in treatment for breast cancer, due to any estradiol/estrogen content in dairy?  Does goat's milk have less estradiol/estrogen than cow's milk?  

This is a separate issue from the issue of synthetic growth hormones given to milk producing cows.  (Goat's milk doesn't have those.)  To avoid growth hormones in milk, one should use only organic skim milk.

But what about the estrogen content in milk?  Is that an issue?  Would using goat's milk instead of cow's milk be better in terms of reducing estrogen content?  Thank you.

Dairy products in general (organic or not) have casein in them and should be used in moderation or not at all. That said, protein in general should be consumed in small quantities if you really want to lower your risk of cancer. Yes the studies say that there is estradiol in cows milk but I'm not sure why you think goats milk would be different. If an animal is lactating it would make sense that there is estradiol involved. Try almond milk, it's better for you all the way around and is delicious too.

Even with an oopherectomy your body will still produce estrogen.

For more information you may want to check out the book The China Study. Totally awesome. Think right, eat right. Best of health to you.
