breast milk also carries everything a human body needs, so technically we can sustain ourselves on breast milk alone as well xD

Human breast milk can taste different depending on what the mom had to eat recently, but in general tastes like watery, slightly sweet milk.  It's rather similar to rice milk, actually, and (if you're a baby), nice and warm.

Why do some women grow natural big breast???? I don't really understand.

Marixsa1995 December 14, 2013 - 11:14 AM

yey for boobies

Kylan Walker February 4, 2014 - 8:10 AM

Luckily I can remember what it tastes like, to me it had this kind of bitter sweet taste. Kind of like if you get normal cows milk on old paper.

According to a recent study, more adults are more willing to consume human breast-milk than in the past centuries. That means that one could start a factory-farming business that would house several thousand pregnant women who would be employed to have their breast-milk extracted for consumption of the masses. This would not only widen the variety of foodstuffs available, but also create valuable jobs for pregnant and nursing women who often face financial difficulties.

If human breast milk were so amazing then why do we drink the cow's,? why don't we  make business out of lactating mothers instead of lactating cows???
