Default Cows To Produce Human Breast Milk

BEIJING - Chinese scientists have genetically modified dairy cows to produce human breast milk, and hope to be selling it in supermarkets within three years.

The milk produced by the transgenic cows is identical to the human variety, with the same immune-boosting and antibacterial qualities as breast milk, scientists at China's Agricultural University in Beijing said. ...

"It's good," said worker Jiang Yao. "It's better for you because it's genetically modified." ...




Yeah, right...we'll see. The whole story is here: http://www.myfoxny.com/dpp/news/chin...k-20110608-ncx

What's the problem. Everyone here tells me how safe it is to eat Genetically modified foods, so what's the problem with gmo milk?
Where are all the folks that think our responsibility is to feed the world?

Gee with the Monsanto thread and support for these frankenfoods, I thought everyone here would think this is a wonderful idea. We will be able to feed more babies throughout the world!! Sweet.

Remember during the olympics, the Chinese also announced they had a machine to control the weather.

This sure does.

"There are 1.5 billion people in the world who don't get enough to eat," he said. "It's our duty to develop science and technology, not to hold it back. We need to feed people first, before we consider ideals and convictions."

I wonder if they had to use makeup and false eyelashes on the cows?

Odd how people find human milk coming from a cow unappealing yet consuming the milk of another mammal yummy. Add in it's full of bovine puss and blood and it's a down right delicacy.

Even cows have the good sense to stop drinking milk at an early age.

Did you mean the goopy puss or pussy? After all-its free--all you have to do is climb a fence near you....

Look for slant eyed cows infiltrating the herd.
