me trying to do my part: Lets give the world the milk that is need for us human to human not cow to human (1/1)

I know many people might not like this idea and may even look down upon it or harass me about it but this is an idea that could change the the health of millions of people all around the world every mammal Gets what it needs from its mother where have we come as a species to take milk from another Woman's milk is far more better for all humans there are all different kinds of health benefits involving breast milk for new age infants to the elderly why can't we start converting over to breastmilk I guess what I'm asking is it there are any women out there that are willing to help start a revolution yes the pay may be small at first but with everybody converting over will be so much worth it if there is any women out therethat are willing to start a business involving breast milk or instead of going to work you will go somewhere where you can pump for a little while and go home as a normal day of work

Hello milklover,

Your suggestion is courageous and as all new ideas are, challenging an openness for consideration rather than a fast dismissal for the comfort of staying with the norm. Here are my thoughts, after some reflection. I have heard of breast milk being shared for babies whose mothers cannot produce milk, a gift from the heart that many mammals offer naturally, and that we thinking humans have both feared as somehow wrong, and overcome fears and offered generously. What disturbs me, however, is the concept of developing a business, as women with few options could feel pressured to tax their bodies to survive financially. I continue to press for other work to be made available to women. The other resistance I have with your idea, is the offering of breast milk to elders. I believe that the time for breast milk is for babies, and again,  am concerned about women taxing their bodies. As an elder, I have many options for finding the nutrients I need. Thank you though, for the thought provoking idea, and for having the courage to put it forward.

With love in sisterhood,

Tam

Thank you very much tam for your in put. But in response to some of your concern's leading studies have shown that breast milk has the possibility of preventing and reversing medical conditions that plague the elderly. Second nonprofit organizations still charge hospitals on the milk they get and with a limited budget cant afford alot and profit organization charge close to 200-250 U.S dollars a ounce. Compare that to cow milk at $2.50 a gallon there are 128 ounces in one gallen thats $25600 a gallon of breastmilk. If you where to change that babies elderly will have the chance to get some of the white gold :)

Hi there, Milklover,

Am I correct in my understanding that you are suggesting commodifying breast milk for sale to human consumers? If so, this is indeed an interesting idea. I did some Googling, and it looks like the sale of breast milk is not a new concept — and more importantly, that there some risks involved. This article sums up the issue pretty well.

Also, what you seem to be suggesting is not one-time, direct producer-to-consumer milk sale transactions, but rather a milk bank. Is that right? If so, assuming all the health risks the CNN article mentions could somehow be averted, who do you suppose might run and fund such a bank?

Keep writing,

Drew

Thank you very much for your comments I'm yes my dear is for the sale of breastmilk in the process of breastmilk what I'm suggesting is not just the bank but pretty much replacing all of how we get cows milk today there is a saying that goes mothers knows best well mother nature knows best she gave women the ability to make milk now I know everyone says its only for babies but if you look at cals cows only start producing milk when they have a baby and from that point on as long as theirs and extraction of the milk they will keep producing milk Oh same thing goes for women women can produce milk way in to menopause and still produce milk what I'm trying to say is I believe humans should be drinking human milk and not that of another species a species makes its milk for its own species that is my idea now milk banks have ways of processing the milk to filter out anything that come through the breast my idea is weird asylum but may make perfect sense to others and I hope people hear this idea I will actually give it an honest try
