What about Cheese made from human breast milk?
A chef in New York decided to make some cheese from his wife's breast milk:
The reactions have been interesting...
And the Today Show:
Do you see how NO ONE wanted to try the breast milk cheese? And they all freaked out when one guy actually did? "Gross!" "Gag!" "Ew!"
Milk comes from human breasts to feed babies. Milk also comes from the breasts, or teats, of cows, goats, and many many other mammals. Humans drink cow milk and eat goat cheese, but if you mention consuming human breast milk by any human other than a baby, the reaction is usually shock and disgust.
But Why? Is it because of the society we live in? Because we are so breast-phobic? Because it is from humans and it is cannibalistic (as mentioned in the video)?
"try this…take a cup of cows milk and tell someone as you sip on it, “This is left over breastmilk I had frozen and didn’t want to see wasted.” As they turn green and gag and threaten to report you to SOMEONE who can come and lock you up to protect society from you – smile and say, “I’m just kidding….it’s just milk squeezed from a cows udder.”
Phew….they will be relieved to hear that!" (Vita Mutari)
