Restaurant to serve breast milk

Breastfeed_980648f Sometimes we write about things that aren't crimes but should be. Like Swiss restaurant The Storchen (English: The Stork) announcing plans to serve breast milk to its grownup customers.

"We have all been raised on it. Why should we not include it into our diet?" restaurant owner Hans Locher asks rhetorically, adding that he re-experimented with breast milk after his daughter was born.

Health authorities in Switzerland can't do anything to stop Locher, apparently, because humans are not on the list of legally approved or banned milk sources. 

And here's the kicker: Locher is accepting donations from milk-producing women, who he'll pay about $5.50 US for 14 ounces.

*Thanks to Chef Michael for the tip.

How does this restaurant owner know that the milk he is giving out is not from a mother that has the HIV or Aids virus?

I agree it would seem weird for an adult to be drinking breast milk. However, I don't believe it would be bad for you.. and may very well be better for you. Just think, we drink every day milk produced by dirty cows... and we think that is okay. Human milk has lots of antibodies that could help us fight colds, just like they help babies.

It's true, and odd, that we are programmed as children to believe it's OK to drink the milk of another animal - even as adults. The truth is, cow's milk is formulated to assist the naturally rapid growth of a calf. Human milk is formulated to assist brain development, not physical growth, as humans do not grow nearly as fast as cows. Once weaned, no animal (including humans) needs milk as a food source.
Adults drinking milk from any source is unnatural and, in most cases, difficult to digest (adults loose the ability to digest lactose). Still, if any milk is pasturized, it won't be dangerous - just a bit rough on the digestive system.

I tried some straight from the source and I thought it tasted great!!!

Anyone who has breast fed knows that $5.50 for 14 ounces is way too little. It really is liquid gold.

We have no place to tell another country they can or can't serve it, let them do it it is what makes the world go round. Not everyone like Mcdonalds and starkbucks!!!!

I'VE BEEN DRINKING IT AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER,,,NOTHING BETTER THAN MILK STRAIGHT FROM THE TAP. NOW I UNDERSTAND THAT THERE ARE THOSE OF THE OTHER PERSUASION SUCH AS DR. VINNY BABOOMER WHO PREFER TO SUCK MILK FROM THEIR FATHERS TAP, BUT IT AIN'T THE SAME THING. NOT EVEN CLOSE.

DR. VINNY BABOONER, PH.D.

FREDERICK R. FREEP,

I VEHEMENTLY DENY THOSE SCURRILOUS ALLEGATIONS. I SUSPECT YOU HAVE HANDLED MORE PECKERS THAN COL SANDERS ... OR EVEN THAT GAY COLUMNIST THAT THE HERALD HAS.

ONLY A FREAK ADULT WOULD DRINK MILK HUMAN MILK FROM THE TAP..OR EVEN BOTTLED. ADULT PEOPLE WERE MEANT TO DRINK 100% COWS MILK. OF COURSE...I'VE SEEN YOUR WIFE FRED...AND SHE QUALIFIES. SO I GUESS YOU'RE SAFE THERE.

THAT'S WHAT I SAY.
