Mama's milk ice-cream?


Ice cream....YUM!! The above picture shows kids enjoying ordinary treats from Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream. Not sure if they'd still be enjoying the ice cream if they are made from human milk though.

That's what ice cream will be made from if PETA's advice is being heeded. PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, has recommended to Ben & Jerry's to consider using human breast milk instead of cow's milk in their products. Besides health reasons given, PETA said "...it would reduce the suffering of cows and calves". And getting milk from mamas is different?! Duh!!

Well, I know that if human milk is used, I'm weaned off ice cream. Eww!!

  5. LB, LOL on the ice cream source. *shudders*

    Those Piggies sure look cosy - but poor Piggies. No, you wouldn't want to know what I had for lunch. You'd be miserable.

    MB, you know, we talked about it at lunch today and two mamas said human milk doesn't taste good. *shudders again at the thought*
