Test Tube Cows Produce 'Human-Like Milk'


Researchers at China Agricultural University have done something truly disgusting: They’ve introduced human genes into test tube cows so that they can produce a “human-like milk.” The lead researcher, professor Ning Li told the Sunday Telegraph, “The milk tastes stronger than normal milk.” Mmm, test tube milk that’s stronger than Vitamin D milk — who wouldn’t want to drink that? The grand plan:

“We aim to commercialize some research in this area in coming three years. For the ‘human-like milk,’ 10 years or maybe more time will be required to finally pour this enhanced milk into the consumer’s cup.”

Coming soon: Enhanced fake human breast milk straight from a genetically-modified cow’s utters to your cereal bowl! Yum.
