Camel's milk

Well I never knew that -

"It is a rich source of insulin. Containing approximately 52 units of insulin in each liter of camel milk, making it a great treatment option for Type 1 or Type 2 diabetics as well as Gestational Diabetes"

erm.... am I missing something?

If insulin can be taken orally why arent we sipping the stuff instead of stabbing ourselves?

It can't :P Insulin doesn't survive digestion. I know at some point in all the research someone was looking at a way to coat a capsule or pill so that it wouldn't get destroyed in the stomach but I've never heard any more about it. Not like we need yet another non-injection delivery method anyway. The injections are not the problem. The DIABETES is :P

There is something different about camel milk -

"Camel milk is unique in the sense that it does not respond to acidic agents like other animal milk, possesses different casein content and much larger lipid micelles"

You can download the whole pdf file from here -

Quite an interesting read.

I recall a serious discussion of camel's milk on a.s.d. many years ago among several wise contributors. Unfortunately I don't recall the conclusions reached.

On a lateral note, we probably have more camels roaming the outback in northern WA and the Northern Teritory than there are in Arabia, North Africa and the Middle East combined.

That would probably reduce their numbers.

But maybe we can set up some milking stations :)
