<<<"It couldn’t be long before genetic engineering found its way into breast milk manufacture, and 12 cows in Virginia, USA, have been genetically engineered to produce a human breast milk protein. The resultant milk may also carry the Holy Grail of formula – some antibodies. Although how these would survive the three- or four-year shelf life of the average formula is hard to understand. Besides, the idea of ‘Frankencows’ will be a difficult psychological image for marketers to sell to anxious parents.">>>
Does this bother anyone?? Is this some fantastic step forward for the formula industry??
Did you all know that the DHA/ARA that comes in infant formula is made from fish eyeballs. Does that sit well with you?? It doesn't bother me at all but was wondering about everyone else.
Also, I just read where it is thought that infant formula is now the WORLD'S most scrutinized food.
