Hypoallergene Milch von Gen-Kuh

Advocacy groups like Greenpeace and the Union of Concerned Scientists have already declared war on poor people and kids with their militant, anti-science hysteria against Golden Rice but actual scientists continue to work toward the common good. There is more good news for kids on another front. A cow has been cloned and genetically engineered with a modification of its gene for producing beta-lactoglobulin, a protein which isn’t in human milk and causes allergies in 2-3% of children. Potential benefit: a “hypoallergenic” milk that doesn’t taste terrible, thanks to biology and scary 21st century science that freaks out progressive cranks.
