(AP) A compound in breast milk has been found to destroy many skin warts, raising hopes it might also prove effective against cervical cancer and other lethal diseases caused by the same virus. 

The human papilloma virus causes skin warts, which is extremely widespread. Swedish researchers found that when the breast-milk compound - since named HAMLET - is applied to the skin, it kills virally infected cells in warts resistant to conventional treatments...

If you had warts that you couldn`t get rid of, would you use breast milk on them?

That's kind of sick, but warts are even more sick, so I guess so.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 7/31/04 - 2:20:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
I used to have warts, but not anymore. And maybe I would. But only depending on by what method I got to put the breast milk on my warts.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 7/31/04 - 2:20:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only if I could use my own. But I wouldn't mind to donate or be donated breast milk.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Sunday 8/1/04 - 3:10:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, why not? And if it doesn't work, well, at least I have something to drink!
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 8/7/04 - 10:56:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, if it worked.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 8/7/04 - 10:57:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
..and if there were a method of doing it, other than me being squirted by someone's breast.
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Saturday 8/7/04 - 10:58:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
sure why not
18 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 8/19/04 - 1:01:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ive never heard of that, but I suppose I would, yeah
18 yrs ago - Thursday 9/2/04 - 12:19:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, why not. Anyone want to volenteer? I really don't have any though.
18 yrs ago - Thursday 9/2/04 - 12:25:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
If so, I would then have to stalk a mother who is lactating?, there must be an easier way?.
17 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 10/19/04 - 5:23:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
ooh oooh i have warts. I HAVE WARTS!
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 9:17:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
umm.. i dont have warts.. but.. if i did.. i'd use it..
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 9:18:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
dont they have a pill?
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Friday 11/5/04 - 11:35:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
Heck yeah if I had warts, breast milk doesn't scare me.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Saturday 11/6/04 - 12:24:45 AM EST (GMT-5)
only if that was the only way to get rid of them.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 11/23/04 - 3:54:12 PM EST (GMT-5)
If the question was about babyblood I'd be disturbed somewhat, but otherwise I'd put almost anything on it to get rid of them.
Heck I even tried peeing on a wart hoping it would help....and no, it didn't so no need for trying that.
17 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Tuesday 11/23/04 - 3:57:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
I thought a banana peel was supposed to work if you rubbed it on a wart. I think there are more bananas around than lactating women - in my house, anyway '-)
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 2/7/05 - 11:04:51 AM EST (GMT-5)
Easiest cure for warts is to rub not breast milk but dandylion milk (the white stuff that comes out of the broken leaves) on them a few times a day for about a month. If breast milk worked faster than that I might give it a try. I do recommend the dandylion milk though!
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Monday 2/7/05 - 11:51:09 AM EST (GMT-5)
You know, having sex makes lactating women squirt sometimes, not like drips or anything, either; I mean, like a leaky pipe.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 3/19/05 - 1:07:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes if it worked
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 4/12/05 - 12:42:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
Only if the woman started weaning her kid. I wouldn't feel right taking food from a baby just because I had some warts.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Wednesday 4/20/05 - 6:06:21 AM EST (GMT-5)
if it helps?
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 10/18/05 - 1:51:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
It also cures pinkeye, ear infections, conjunctivitis, heals wounds and hundreds of other things! It's sort of an all purpose ointment in our house.
