Camel Milk and Autism?

For years, camel milk has been used as medicine in several cultures such as the Middle Eastern and African societies. Some people believe that certain proteins in camel milk can benefit those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). One study, published in 2013, established that antioxidant enzymes, such as glutathione (GSH), can actually improve common behaviors that autistic children often show. This is because such enzymes are at lower levels in those with autism than those who do not have ASD. A common belief is that oxidative stress has much to do with autism, and GSH can help prevent such stress.   A patient report published in 2013 details a mother's experience with camel milk and how it has positively affected her autistic child's life.

Lactoferrin and proliferation of colorectal cancer cells

"Lactoferrin (Lf), the main iron-binding protein of milk, has biological activities. We have evaluated the potential of camel milk lactoferrin for its ability to inhibit the proliferation of the colon cancer cell line, HCT-116, in vitro, DNA damage and its antioxidant activities for the first time. The antioxidant capacity of Lf was evaluated by different assays, including ferric-reducing/antioxidant power assay (FRAP), free radical-scavenging activity (DPPH), nitric oxide (NO) radical-scavenging assay, total antioxidant activity and DNA damage, compared with vitamin C and rutin."
