Have we gone to far with genetic engineering...?
« on: April 04, 2011, 09:59:53 PM »
"The scientists have successfully introduced human genes into 300 dairy cows to produce milk with the same properties as human breast milk.

Human milk contains high quantities of key nutrients that can help to boost the immune system of babies and reduce the risk of infections.

The scientists behind the research believe milk from herds of genetically modified cows could provide an alternative to human breast milk and formula milk for babies, which is often criticised as being an inferior substitute."

Its been at least 10 years Ohio State University was protested for having pigs spliced with human DNA. The program was for future of human organ transplant. By splicing the humans DNA in the porcine organs they were less likely to be rejected. Pigs and Bovine heart valves etc have been used for years and years for transplant. There is alot more than you know going on.
Life is too short....don't sweat the small stuff.

Well if its more like human milk, then it actually makes more sense to drink that milk instead. Humans are the only species that drinks another species milk, not that natural to begin with.

Its a strange world, why stop now...lol
