Genetically Modified Cows Produce Human Milk

Proving that life is stranger than fiction, Chinese scientists have introduced human genes into 300 dairy cattle so that the cows produce human milk. Human milk has a lot of nutrients that are good for babies, so the scientists hope that their genetic trickery will provide a ready supply of milk with all the benefits of human breast milk without the need for a lactating human.

If the genetically modified cows produce human milk in sufficient quantity and the milk gains acceptance in the marketplace, the engineered dairy products could soon find their way to supermarket shelves. It won’t be an easy sell. Opponents to genetically modified foods question whether genetically modifying cows is ethical and safe for either human consumers or the modified cattle.
