Human Breast Milk Ice Cream… now on sale in the UK

Those crazy Brits…
I’m surprised also that medical and other ethicists have not jumped on this issue – even that the government has allowed this, which is the sale of human tissue. Hair, however, is sold – but body parts, such as cornea, heart and/or valves, etc., are not. That, of course, is also entirely discounting that many medications are excreted in breast milk. For example also, what happens when the supply is gone?
Reckon what the LaLeche League thinks of this?
And then, there’s the inevitable humor that will result.

Breast milk ice cream goes on sale in Covent Garden
Mrs Hiley, 35, said if adults realised how tasty breast milk was more new mothers would be encouraged to breastfeed.
Each serving of Baby Gaga at Icecreamists costs £14.
Icecreamists founder Matt O’Connor placed an advert appealing for breast milk donations and believes his new recipe will be a success.
“If it’s good enough for our children, it’s good enough for the rest of us,” he said.
“Some people will hear about it and go yuck – but actually it’s pure organic, free-range and totally natural.”
Mrs Hiley, who gets £15 for every 10 ounces of milk she donates to the company, said it was a great “recession beater”.
“What’s the harm in using my assets for a bit of extra cash?” she added.
“I teach women how to get started on breastfeeding their babies. There’s very little support for women and every little helps.”
Mr O’Connor said 14 other women had come forward to offer their services. Health checks for the lactating women were the same used by hospitals to screen blood donors.
“No-one’s done anything interesting with ice cream in the last hundred years,” he added.
