What's in my ice cream?
I have heard everything. PETA (people for the ethical treatment of animals) has approached the ice cream producer Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream with the idea of using breast milk instead of cow's milk in their ice cream. Don't get me wrong because I do believe in ethical treatment of animals but what would we do with all the cow's milk? I fail to see their reasoning that milking a cow is torture to the animal. What about humans? I would wonder where they would get the breast milk and where is the humane society for nursing mothers. Who would regulate the sanitation of breast milk, let alone bottle it and make it safe for consumption? Leave my ice cream alone!!! Grandmother
