kisseswookies: As a woman who works with cheese, I fear the phrase "lactose intolerance". I've known people that didn't have it as kids. I don't want to develop it.

I've got it too now, I resisted the idea for some time as a stupid faddy diet thing but eventually i listened to my body saying "Look buddy you aren't a baby, and you're certainly not a baby cow, lay off that stuff it's not something middle aged African plains apes would naturally eat".

I must admit I'm interested in what this article might mean, its easier to control my weight nowadays using soya "milk" instead, but I really miss cow juice in my coffee and tea. And cream over my dessert. And Ben and Jerry's. And milkshakes.

This is really quite stupid.

All this work is being done essentially just so that dairy companies can sell more dairy goods to consumers, because god forbid someone be allergic to milk and then not buy it.

Ambivalence: This article doesn't make sense to me. This "cow" is 7 months old, way too young to even produce milk. How do they know it WILL be healthier and contain less allergens? That's the theory but you can't test the milk before it's collected.

the picture was taken when teh cow was 7 months old.

"Because federal law says transgenic milk can't be consumed, the researchers aren't sure what it tastes like yet."

Hahaha, riiiiiiight.
