    Would anyone like to have the most delicious human food?

    It's breast milk, breast milk is the only thing that a human can "only consume" for the rest of his/her life and be healthy. (what's inside of it)
    Why don't we have breast milk chips.
    I bet those would be a lot healthier then potato chips.

    Why hasn't anyone created food disc like on that one TV show, hmm I believe the name was "Buck Rodgers". I want food disc made from what's in breast milk and not that sheit (potato chips) they call food.

    Someone invent this now.

    Sorry, I can't give any sources. The source is lost forever. I can't find the article in my web history. :P

    I also can't find any.

    BUTT, it was a interesting find, I had to let someone know!

    Yeah, and if I recall, people have gotten in trouble before for trying to sell human breast milk online on places like Craigslist. I guess it's understandable - someone might catch a virus from drinking the bodily fluids of a stranger.

    Infant formula made from soy is extremely harmful to babies, and causes them to develop poorly in just about every way, physically, mentally, emotionally, etc. They tend to develop obesity and thyroid problems among other things when they are fed soy formula instead of breast milk.

    Not unless you're among a great number of people who are lactase deficient (and human milk has twice the lactose as bovine milk).

    What's the title of the peer reviewed paper where these claims are fully discussed and documented?

    Actually the human body is not designed to function on milks of any type after a certain point.

    breast milk is the only thing that a human can "only consume" for the rest of his/her life and be healthy.
    Human breast milk is like any other mammal's milk. It's concentrated food, very high in fats and other nutrients needed for a newborn infant to grow pretty fast, especially its brain.

    Just like every other mammal on earth it is not suitable for grown adolescents or adults. Apart from any other consideration, think about the quantities and kinds of foods the woman producing this milk would need to consume to maintain another adult the same or larger size than her. It's one thing to feed a developing body and brain in a small infant, it's another thing to sustain a healthy adult.

    What kind of bone strength would she have if her calcium is constantly being diverted into sustaining another adult?
    How much energy would she have if she had to produce enough for a man to do a hard day's work as well as to sustain her own health?
    And when she's also pregnant and/or feeding an infant?
