Camel milk help diabetes patients

Although carmel's milk have been consumed for thousands of years in Africa and the Middle East, it's medical benefits toward modern diseases were not known until recently.
In 1986, an insulin-like protein has been detected in camel milk. Following clinical trials in human diabetes type 1 have shown that the daily consumption of 0.5 litre camel milk reduces the need for insulin medication by an average of 30%. The anti-diabetic properties of camel milk have been demonstrated in several other studies.
Camel milk has positive effects in controlling high blood pressure and helps in the management of Arteriosclerosis and Osteoporosis. Research has demonstrated the presence of potent anti-bacterial and anti-viral factors in camel milk. Clinical trials showed that recovery from infectious disease (e.g. Tuberculosis) was significantly faster in patients consuming camel milk regularly.
Think about it, nature designed camel's milk to help baby camels grow up in some of the world's roughest environments - deserts and steppes. That helps explain why it is 3 times as rich in Vitamin C, 10 times as rich in iron as cow's milk, as well as containing many medicinal compounds.
Few years ago, I got a chance to taste a small piece of cheese made of camel milk. It didn't taste good for sure, quite salty. Now a Austria entrepreneur called Johann Hochleitner is developing camel's milk chocolates. Yogurt and butter are also in the work.
With 20 million camels in the world, dairy experts at the United nation's Food and Agriculture Organization predict $10 billion in annual sales in 2016 for camel's milk due to strong demand.

Wow, awesome thing to write about! I really enjoyed reading this blog; the information was fantastic and it's a real break through for those who have diabetes; it's great they have the possibility to enjoy chocolate that helps with their condition! However, will it not be cruel to milk camels?

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Whoami

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."

Its an interesting point you place forward about the use of camel milk. I am sure there are plenty of foods out there that have benefit to us that have been eaten/drunk by differing cultures for ever, but because of our western domination we have never taken a second look at the benefits that these foods may have to us in the fight against diseases or cancers. I know it takes time for these studies to be completed and made avilable but it makes me wonder if we went back to the nautral world and spent the money we do on all fields of research in chemicals. I wonder what we could achieve.

Have you found a source for camel milk that we can obtain in the US? Even powdered milk would be acceptable. Thank you.
