Human Breast Milk Produced By Chinese GMO Cows

Impressive, but I’m holding out for genetically engineered cows that produce milkshakes. Good writes:

These cows were bred by inserting human genes into cloned cow embryos which were then implanted into surrogate cows. The plan is to have this milk in supermarkets within three years. China is well ahead of the Western world in terms of its comfort with genetically modified food. But let’s think about this. Could consumers get past the Freudian weirdness of drinking breast milk in the name of nutrition?

    It makes you wonder: How much cow DNA do we need to replace with Human DNA before it’s considered an ethical problem?

      Or at the very least, until it’s considered an entirely different species.

    I’m mainly troubled by the societal slippery slope this represents:  How long is it until they manage to grow actual human female breasts on a cow?  This represents the extinction of traditional marriage as we know it.

     Soon infants will be drinking pasteurized cow/human milk! Think of all the money the funeral parlors will make selling all those tiny coffins!

    Human beings are the only species on earth that drink milk from another animal and continue to drink it well past the developmental stages of life. There is something about the suckling of a mothers milk that helps sooth the masses and make them ‘obey’

    “China is well ahead of the Western world in terms of its comfort with genetically modified food.

    They’re also streets ahead regarding compulsory abortions, mobile execution vans, renal toxins in baby formula and crushing protesters beneath the tracks of heavy armour.

    Fucking hell. Milks main purpose is a timeless education platform for a child’s immune system. The mother that presumably breastfed has the immunities that their mother did, and therefore, their breastfed child has those same immunities… and the cycle continues on back through time…. unless you break the chain with “formula” or  “human milk from cows”

    Yes that’s right cows, you thought your life was hell already? Well guess what now! We are literally going to play with your very genetic code, making you abominations.

    Can someone please blow up civilization already?

      They’ve already been bred to the point of abomination. Don’t milk a cow? Extreme pain from over production of milk. Don’t kill a chicken? They’ll just keep growing to the point they can’t even walk. And that’s not even including gmo style stuff.

    Nobody wants this stuff, it’s a scientific boondoggle, though it may put people off drinking milk forever…
