Health benefits to adults drinking breast milk

My wife has large surplus of breast milk which was more than what our baby could consume. I started drinking it and actually found I like the taste of it.

Is it more healthy drinking human breast milk than drinking cow's milk. Are there any health benefits to drinking my wife's milk?

    Yes, breastmilk is quite beneficial for adults as well. It increases immunity in Adults, protect from different ailments ie Diarrhea, Infection, Flu etc as well as beneficial for female as well. As longer breastfeeding save woman from Breast Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, arthritis etc.

    Moreover, every Mammals milk composition is for its on Race.... Cows milk is made for Cows, Goats milk is for Goat.....As the metabolism is different in Cow, Goat, Camel & Human Being

    I THINK IT IS NOT GOOD FOR ADULTS DRINKING BREAST MILK. ALL MAMMALS TAKE HIS MOTHERS MILK.BUT IT IS GOOD FOR A LIMITED AGE. AFTER A AGE IT IS BAD FOR HIS/HER HEALTH. AS EXAMPLE, HGS(SOMATOTROPINE) HORMONE IS USE FOR INCREASE HEIGHT TILL TO 18 YEARS GENERALLY FOR MALE AND WOMEN. ONLY 1-5% PEOPLE CAN BE GROW HEIGHT AFTER AGE 18 TILL 25. BUT AFTER 18 YEARS IF YOUR PITUITIARY GLAND PRODUCE MUCH SOMATOTROPINE HORMONE IT IS NOT WELL AS LIKE BEFORE AGE 18 OR BEFORE AGE 25..AFTER AGE 18 YEARS MUCH PRODUCTION OF HGS IN YOUR BODY LEADS TO YOU ACROMEGALY.WHICH HAS NO CURE.I HOPE YOU GET YOUR ANSWER.

      Who told you all this ? Who told you drinking a woman's milk will actually absorb her hormones into the male body ? Can't it pass out with excreta ? I've been drinking my wife's milk for 10 years nothing has happened. Please write researched answers only !!
