Cows Produce Human Milk

Researchers in China have genetically modified 200 cows to produce human-like milk.

A herd of 200 cows have been genetically modified to produce milk with similar characteristics as human breast milk by researchers at China Agricultural University. Li Ning, director of the laboratory responsible for the development, says that the milk will “make the healthy protein contained in human milk affordable for ordinary consumers.” Human breast milk contains a complex combination of antibodies, digestive enzymes, and hormones. It has been proven to be beneficial for an infant’s immune and central nervous system, though no research has found that adults get the same health benefits. Ning says he hopes that the product will be available in supermarkets within 10 years.
