Frankenscientists announce mutant GMO cows to produce hormone-induced 'engineered' milk for human babies

The world of genetic engineering has fallen even further into the surreal with the announcement that New Zealand "scientists" have unveiled a genetically modified mutant cloned cow which they say produces a reduced-allergen milk for consumption by human babies. This is being reported by the BBC and elsewhere.

Horrifyingly, these Frankenscientists cloned a cow and then altered the embryo using RNA interference. After gestation, the mutant GMO cow was born without a tail! But these scientists say that's no problem, and that the mutation of having no tail couldn't possibly be related to anything they did with the cow's DNA.

...the corrupt food system in America is almost certain to embrace mutant genetically modified cloned cow's milk and call it "safe" for infants!

Never mind the fact that the genetically altered milk produced by this cow had "double the concentrations of caseins," as The Guardian is reporting.

Oh, and by the way, the milk being produced by this mutant, cloned, tail-less GMO cow is of course 100% driven by artificial hormones! As the BBC reports:

"It has not yet become pregnant and produced milk normally so the scientists used hormones to jump-start milk production."

Poor cow is all I could think.

But also, I don't know why anyone would think such tampering with food sources is a wonderful idea.
