All scream for breast cream

Breast-milk ice cream isn’t vegan, obviously. But the sweet teat treat has been in the news lately because London’s The Icecreamists shop began selling a frozen human-milk concoction, Baby Gaga, at about $22 a serving—until it was confiscated by the Health Protection Agency based on concerns of potentially transmitting viruses, i.e., hepatitis. So it poses a great opportunity to think about our perceptions: Why, as weaned animals, do we view consuming human milk as grosser than milk of another species, especially since most dairy comes from factory-farmed, drugged cows in unhealthy environments?
