Stop This Nonesense - Cows Cannot Give Human Milk

Scientists breed 300 genetically modified cows to give "human" milk. The Sunday Telegraph

scientists have successfully introduced human genes into 300 dairy cows to produce milk with the same properties as human breast milk.

Human milk contains high quantities of key nutrients that can help to boost the immune system of babies and reduce the risk of infections.

The scientists behind the research believe milk from herds of genetically modified cows could provide an alternative to human breast milk and formula milk for babies, which is often criticised as being an inferior substitute.

They hope genetically modified dairy products from herds of similar cows could be sold in supermarkets. The research has the backing of a major biotechnology company.

The work is likely to inflame opposition to GM foods. Critics of the technology and animal welfare groups reacted angrily to the research, questioning the safety of milk from genetically modified animals and its effect on the cattle's health.

Now I and my friends who contribute to The Daily Stirrer do not suggest there is any health risk here. Babycare companies have been modifying cows milk to make it good for human babies for many decades. There has been a lot of screaming from the rope sandal wearing fringes of the medical professions in recent years about mothers' breast milk being best but the studies supporting that used some, to say the least, questionable techniques to gather data in support of their claims.

Certainly no physical harm has come babies fed on 'formula' milk, dried enriched milk that is rehydrated and it is exteremely unlikely any would come to babies fed on the milk from cloned cows. But cows are never going to give us human milk, what these genetically modified cows will give us is modified cows milk. As ever when assessing another claim of a great scientific breakthrough which will facilitate the interference of scientists where it is not needed we mut ask as Marcus Tullius Cicero did 2000 years ago, "Cui Bono?" Who benefits, who gets rich from this

What must be questioned here is the determination once more of the scientists who want to play God, the neo nazi idiots who wish for the day when the young of every living creature are manufactured in the laboratory rather that by the tried and trusted methods that have served nature for millions of years.

We have no need of cloned cattle. Bulls and cows are perfectly capable of doing the job without interference from control freak scientists. We have no need of cloned humans and the best excuse for carrying on experiments in the genetic modification of human beings, to eliminate hereditary diseases and defects, while specifically a worthy aim, is just a thinly disguised excuse the resume the Nazi eugenics programme.

And apart from those argument which are rather sensationalised I admit but no more so than the unrealistically exaggerated claims of the science lobby, we are allowing these highly politicised, self serving, research grant phishing charlatans use our tax money to make a case for replacing a low cost, highly effective process with a high cost process that offers no tangible benefit to the wider community but only serves to swell the profits of biotech companies and expand the empires of a few biology academics.

Pesticide residues on fruit and veg. is harming male fertility, study claims

Pesticide residues on some fruits and vegetables could be harming men’s fertility, a study has claimed. Researchers found that men who consumed the most peppers, spinach, strawberries, apples and pears – which tend to contain the highest concentrations of pesticide – had on average a 49 per cent lower sperm count than those who ate the least.

Terrifying experiments are conducted on animals so that you can eat cheap, tasty meat
The United States government and the Big Ag and Big Food Corporations are behind a program of cruel and inhumane experimentation on farm animals, according to a new report by the New York Times.The Times says that a little-known agricultural and veterinary research facility, the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center, conducts experimetsn in breeding and performs surgery on farm animals.

Clones: Science Makes War On NatureWe could understand the arguments for genetically modified food crops (although the science turned out to be fraudulent). Increased yields were a worthwhile goal. But there is nothing to gain from switching animal husbandry from natural reproduction (bull - cow, ram - ewe,) to cloning (scientist - test tube), it will make meat hideosly expensive and hand more control to global corporations.

It's Life Craig, But Not As We Know It.Since the publication of Frankenstein and maybe before that it has been the ambition of many scientists to discover the science of life itself and thus create new life in the laboratory. Now modern adances in delusional thinking have led science to move beyond dreams into the realms of fantasy fiction and claim they have created artificial life when they have not.
