Moms No Longer Needed

Chinese scientists have produced genetically-modified cattle capable of producing milk that is nearly identical to human breast milk, but sweeter. The experiment started in 2003 and there are now some 300 genetically-modified cattle delivering calves weekly. The company behind the project hopes to have product on the market within three years.

China recently suffered a rash of scandals involving tainted milk powder that affected over 300,000 young children and killed at least six. At least one person was executed.
