    PETA Urges Ben & Jerry's To Use Human Milk - News Story - WNBC | New York

    "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.

    PETA officials say a move to human breast milk would lessen the suffering of dairy cows and their babies on factory farms and benefit human health.


    I cant make this stuff up? Now what are your feeling on human milk instead of cow's milk?

    If the milk didn't come from a cow it is just a pale imitation. Likely it's less stressful than the bullet that begins the conversion process from Happy Cows to Happy Meals.

    Actually, while I hate PETA and love cows milk, each mammal produces the milk that that species should be drinking. That's why people become lactose intolerant (and I am one such person). Just think though, how weird it would be to get the milk we are suppose to be drinking, as determined by nature. *shudders*

    I'm sure they don't expect it to happen. But they bring up an interesting point.
    First of all, human milk would be probably be better for our digestive tracks.
    Second, if you've ever witnessed newborn calves being separated from their mothers it's heartbreaking enough to make you consider boycotting milk and milk products.

    My mom grew up on a dairy farm and has said it more humain to milk the cows! They are called dairy cows for a reason, they were bred to produse more milk. THis is also why also women pump, because they produce more then the baby needs. Peta is nuts!
    Also another bit of info humans are the only animal that is born craving sugar, our breastmilk has a sweeter taste then cows milks which is why they used to make formula with cows milk and caro syrup!
