GM Milk for Babies

I came across this article and was amazed to see the research that is being done in order to overcome the problem of cow's milk allergy which is becoming more and more common.

Cow's milk, and the proteins it contains, is often one of the first foods introduced into a babies diet and is commonly considered a necessary food for a balanced diet for a growing child.   However, cow's milk allergy is the most common food allergy in infants and young chilidren, up to 1 in 20 may suffer with it.  

When babies or children are fed cows' milk or any parts of it, this can trigger an allergic reaction.  By avoiding the proteins in cow's milk completely the symptoms can be eliminated.

Howevere, I am unsure whether I would want my baby to have genetically modified anything, particularly the basic food in their early life.

Time will tell what effect this will have on both cow's, cow's milk and babies, if it gets that far.

 What do you think?

Our aim is to help identify all kinds of allergies and intolerances.  Once cow's milk allergy or intolerance is identified then advice is given on alternative sources of calcium and other essential goodies required to give a varied, balanced and healthy diet in the absence of dairy products.
