One of my vegan friends posted this on my Facebook wall. It's...interesting. I'm not opposed to the idea of breast milk cheese so long as it's been tested, but REPLACING dairy milk with human milk? I don't know....<br><br><a href="http:" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLBqbO4McUU&feature=player_embedded</a>

Ew. Why does this exist? There are already alternatives to cow milk. Some people will eat anything I guess.

So not real. Just trying to gross out omnis (and lacto-vegetarians...) I'd bet.<br><br>
Also, I've heard you can't make cheese out of human milk, not enough protein.<br><br>
Just in case anybody thinks this is even remotely viable; it's not. And if it were it would lead to exploitation (as in third world countries) of woman lightning fast.<br><br>
But this is the OP's first post so I wonder if we'll ever see them again...

It's a spammer, they signed up at another (non-veg) forum I visit and posted the exact same thing.<br><br>
I hope it makes people think about cows there...

I'm a spammer because I post the same thread on a different forum? Fascinating.

I would say if you're joining 2 forums to post a youtube, yea, that might be spamming.</div>

Well most "spammers" don't actually engage in discussion like I am now, so maybe your theory isn't as sound as you think.

It seems like you can...<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Simun found three nursing women willing to have their milk turned into cheese. She screened the milk for diseases, pasteurized it and learned the basics of cheese-making.<br><br>
Three varieties were available on Sunday — West Side Funk, Midtown Smoke, described as "creamy and just pure heaven," and Wisconsin Chew, the taste of which apparently reflected the vegetable-filled diet of the woman who provided its milk...<br><br>
Last year, a New York chef served diners at his restaurant cheese made from his wife's milk, and earlier this year an ice cream parlor in London began buying women's breast milk and turning it into frozen treats.</div>

It's real. There was a shop in London that sold breast milk ice cream and cheese. Supposedly it was a big hit, but it ended up getting confiscated. They were scared it may have had diseases.

My friend wants to make her own breast milk ice cream and cheese. She figures it might be good for her son when she starts introducing him to solid foods.

Maybe it promotes muscle growth? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

That's an interesting idea.<br><br>
Now I have a question: is breast milk actually healthy for adults to consume?

After doing some research, apparently scientists are very conflicted about the answer to this question. Some argue that breast milk can be digested by a human without serious repercussions, while others maintain that breast milk is actually quite unhealthy. Not sure what to believe.

Also, in regards to diseases being transferred from the milk to the consumer, the milk can be boiled at a high enough temperature to kill things like HIV.

I made this comment in another thread a little while ago:<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
<div class="quote-block">Oh, I though this was like the story about a certain author I know, who served home-made waffles to a couple of journalists. She ran out of normal milk, so she substituted it with her own breast milk... But no, not like that at all. (Btw, is breast milk vegan?)</div>

I remember that thing as well. The real question is if human breast milk <i>really</i> will have more diseases than breast milk coming from cows laying in their own poop?<br><br>
And, I'm a big fan of breast milk,... for babies and not adults.
