Question: Is it true that cows have been genetically engineered to make human milk? Why is this a benefit to us? Is cows milk not as good for us?

Never heard of this one …. and like you, I can’t see the point, when mothers can give their babies breast milk anyway, and there are plenty of products available for mothers who want to bottle feed

This is actually a story that came from China last year: http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/06/16/us-china-cows-idUSTRE75F10K20110616
I don’t think it’s been approved for commercialisation there yet and certainly wouldn’t be approved anytime soon in Europe! As the article notes, the Chinese public are incredibly sceptical of the food industry there following a number of high-profile scandals, some of which involved the deaths of children.
