“… your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn’t stop to think if they should.” – Dr. Ian Malcolm (from Jurassic Park)Scientists claim to have successfully introduced human genes into 300 dairy cows to produce milk with the same properties as human breast milk.
Apparently, the researchers used cloning technology to introduce human genes into the DNA of Holstein dairy cows before the genetically modified embryos were implanted into surrogate cows. “We aim to commercialize some research in this area in coming three years…for the “human-like milk”, say the researchers.
Holy cow, you say, right? And all for the commercialization of a product that moms have been engineering for years.
Human milk contains the ‘just right’ proportions of protein, carbohydrates, fats, minerals, and vitamins for an infant’s optimal growth and development. But since there isn’t an open market for breast milk, scientists have humanized bovine milk from cows in order to create that product."
