Non-allergic milk produced by cloned cow brings hope & controversy

In a world first, New Zealand scientists are close to producing allergy free milk after successfully creating hypoallergenic milk from a genetically modified cow.
The ground breaking development by AgResearch has seen the creation of milk which contains reduced amounts of beta-lactoglobulin (BLG), a allergic causing component. However, some consider the news a controversial development with GE Free New Zealand demanding the research be stopped and declaring it a ‘ “frightening development not a breakthrough.”
Scientists say further research of the milk is needed before it is ready for human consumption.
