PETA makes plea to Ben & Jerry's

This was in our paper today. PETA wants Ben & Jerry's to use breast milk -- dailypress.com Wow! This just seems so wrong on so many levels, I'm an animal lover but this is just a bit too much!

An intern on O & A brought in a homemade batch of vanilla from his sister. lmao A few of the people ate it and said the aftertaste was salty and gamey. lol One said it tasted like rotten cantelope.

I worked pediatrics for 25 years before beginnng my current journey and let me tell you, human breast milk really has an odor! Then there is the whole pasturization issue. How do we know the woman's health? An women only lactate after giving birth the same as cows. Don't see the difference.

Ben and Jerry's will never be healthy, that's all there is to it. Besides, what are we going to do, line up a bunch of women, hook them up to a gigantic breast pump, and feed them nutritional shakes to make sure their milk has vitamins and tastes good? Can you imagine being able to get enough human breast milk to support that? Cows are huge and produce way more milk than humans! I think it's pretty funny when animal-rights people would rather make humans "suffer" than let the poor innocent animals suffer.

With no interference from outsiders, PETA is doing enough ridiculous stuff to discredit themselves and ensure they are regarded as lunatic fringe.

Why not consider soy milk or something like that?

Anywho.. when I heard this story, I was trying to figure out how they would mass produce human milk. Ladies, can you see yourself hooked up to a milking machine? Plus, can you really control what a human eats, drinks, puts into their body to ensure you are getting a quality product?

I would rather see stricter guidelines put in place for the humane treatment of dairy cows. Any animal raised for dairy purposes.
