Ice Cream made of Mother’s Milk?????

26 Sep


People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA wrote a letter to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield this past Tuesday. Cohen and Greenfield are the founders of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, the super-premium ice cream.

In the letter, PETA asked the Unilever-owned company to consider using human milk for its ice cream rather than using cow’s milk. PETA says that milking cows harms cows directly and indirectly; using human milk, “would benefit human health,” according to spokesperson Tonya Reiman in a report published by of Waterbury, Conneticut:

I don’t know what to say about this. I’m all for the La Leche League and the right of women to have the right to nurse their babies wherever and whenever they need to. I also support PETA”s right to protest practices that they feel harm animals, even though I don’t agree with them half of the time.

I always thought that milking cows gave them relief. I just think that this was a slow news day for PETA.
