    Question Swiss restaurant to serve meals cooked with human breast milk

    Story

    "Humans as producers of milk are simply not envisaged in the legislation.

    "They are not on the list of approved species such as cows and sheep, but they are also not on the list of the banned species such as apes and primates," Rolf Etter of the Zurich food control laboratory said.

    One question: Whose?

    Is this going to start a rush of celebrity-branded milks?

    What is so wrong or gross about drinking/eating human milk? People drink cow and goat milk all the time.

    I agree, I know a lady in real life who would donate her milk. She can't give up breastfeeding and pumping. Her daughter is going to be 5 I believe.


    (I in no way condone breastfeeding I think it's wonderful but I don't think adults should have to drink it nor kids school age. JMO only.)

    I drink cow/goat's milk all the time as well, but no way in heck am I drinking a woman's breast milk. Absolutely not! IMHO!

    PETA got the 411 about the Swiss restaurant!

    Good thing I'm not a big ice cream fan!!!

    http://www.wptz.com/news/17539127/detail.html

    WATERBURY, Vt. -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, cofounders of Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc., urging them to replace cow's milk they use in their ice cream products with human breast milk, according to a statement recently released by a PETA spokeswoman.

    "PETA's request comes in the wake of news reports that a Swiss restaurant owner will begin purchasing breast milk from nursing mothers and substituting breast milk for 75 percent of the cow's milk in the food he serves," the statement says.

    I know this story is nearly a month old, but every time I read this it just grosses me out. I keep have visions of women out in the field and grazing... Which has me ask this question:

    How would PETA handle two legged vs four legged in pastures??? Sorry, but I grew up with farmers and that is the visual I keep getting. Though, to be fair, I am sure the two legged "flops" would be less than the four legged. Take it from me. The four legged is nasty when you are strolling the fields. Especially barefoot. And, no. I am not tall. Nasty little myth. Otherwise, I'd be more like 5' 10" vs 5' 3"....
    "I went to the bank and asked to borrow a cup of money. They said, "What for?". I said, "I'm going to buy some sugar".

    Oh shut up, PETA. Milking a cow isn't anywhere near the same as killing a cow. This is just getting ridiculous.
