You might want to think two times about dunking that chocolate chip cookie into that glass of moo – scientists have developed new “human-like” milk that comes from cows, in an effort to create an option to breast milk and formula (what’s wrong with the original formula?).
Yes scientists have productively introduced human genes into 300 dairy cows to produce milk with the same goods as human breast milk.
The research, which is backed by a major biotechnology company, is being complete in hopes of getting these genetically modified dairy products on shelves at your local grocery store – maybe the next to the ice cream made from human breast milk?
If you think this bizarre idea of drinking genetically modified milk is a little bit stank and harmful to the cows, scientists already have answers prepared for detractors.
According to The Telegraph, Professor Ning Li, the scientist who led the research and director of the State Key Laboratories for AgroBiotechnology at the China Agricultural University says the milk would be completely safe and just like milk from regular dairy cows.
He said: “The milk tastes stronger than normal milk. No thanks!
“We aim to commercialize some research in this area in coming three years. For the “human-like milk”, 10 years or maybe more time will be requisite to finally pour this enhanced milk into the consumer’s cup.”
The world is becoming a creepy place…but I think we can all agree that the packaging isn’t nearly as nice as the original.
