Pharmaceutical industry and nutrition breakthroughs

Interesting new developments this week in linking genes to breast cancer predictions. However this will only benefit a tiny minority of women with breast cancer.

Also in engineering a cow which produces the equivalent of skimmed milk. For years now I have been predicting that scientists will succeed in transforming the composition of cow’s milk. Another step on will be to create a cow which produces milk with almost identical formulation to human breast milk.
