I don't give my son milk from conventional dairy cows (we drink raw milk) so I sure wouldn't give him milk from GM cows!!!

From the article:

 

 

Quote:
Human milk contains two kinds of nutrition that can help improve the immune systems and the central nervous systems of children. The components are not available in milk produced by goats or cows.
 

 

Ummm, what "two kinds of nutrition" are these?  LOL, sounds more like a trendy scam than real science to me.  Sure, you can alter the milk cows produce, but that doesn't make it *human* milk and it certainly doesn't make it *breast milk*.

I bing'd "human milk from cow" and got a lot of hits.

 

I liked this article:

The announcement has caused puzzlement around the world.

 

“Why? Where’s the need?” wondered Devinder Sharma, an award winning Indian journalist covering international food policy.

 

Paul Kingsnorth, a prominent UK writer and green campaigner, was more forthright with his opinions. “At what point do humans just $%*&ing stop this crap?” he asked.
