The Telegraph reports:
Here’s a novel idea: Instead of altering the genes of cows, why don’t we work on creating breast milk banks to help those parents who cannot breastfeed, for whatever reason.
There are so many ethical issues surrounding genetically modified foods, and when animals are experimented on, the concern goes beyond crop contamination to animal rights. The Telegraph continues:
I would not want to feed my child this humanized cows’ milk. Who knows what effects it would have on our littlest ones?
When I first heard of this news from the Organic Consumers Association , I was concerned the milk was being produced for adults and older children too. Perhaps, one day it will be. If it really is more nutritious, I can see it being marketed as super milk for humans. Oh my, oh my, where is GE food taking us?
