Researchers at Lund University in Sweden and the University of Gothenburg have discovered a substance in breast milk that kills cancer cells.

Although many years ago, scientists have realized that one of the whites in breast milk promotes apoptosis, a programmed cell death that has now become possible for humans to test this property. The complex called noble simplicity, called HAMLET, is nothing more than a variant of the human alpha-lactalbumin capable of killing tumor cells. (Human Alpha-lactalbumin Made LEthal to Tumor cells)
Patients with bladder cancer were treated with HAMLET and during therapy, cancer cells were found to be urine-depleted following each treatment. Based on the positive experience, there is hope that a drug against cancer will be developed in the future.

We discovered it by accident

In 1995, HAMLET was discovered when testing antibacterial components in breast milk. It was precisely the bacterial activity of breast milk that was tested on the cancerous cells of the lungs, when it was surprisingly found that the milk destroyed the tumor cells. Further research has shown that HAMLET contains a white and a fatty acid that is naturally found in breast milk. So far, it has not been proven that the HAMLET complex is spontaneously formed in breast milk. It is believed that this special substance is formed in the acidic medium of the stomach of infants. Laboratory tests have shown that HAMLET is capable of destroying forty different types of tumors. Scientists will now look at the effects on skin, mucous membranes of the mucous membranes, and brain cancer. HAMLET only destroys cancerous cells and has no effect on healthy cells.
Researchers at the University of Gothenburg are now seeking answers on how HAMLET can be delivered to tumor cells. Roger Karlsson, Maya Puchades, and Ingela Lanekoff wonder how this special substance binds to cell membranes. Their current discoveries have been published in PLoS One.
