HIV Blocking Milk Is Now A Thing

10.24.12 5 years ago 6 Comments

With today’s myriad of beverage options, it’s hard for humble old milk to compete. When was the last time you drank a glass of milk? Non-chocolate milk? Yeah, thought so. But hey, milk has learned a new trick! It can now protect against HIV.

Cows can’t contract HIV, but Australian scientists have found that if you inject them with the virus while pregnant they’ll produce effective anti-HIV antibodies. These antibodies are passed along through their milk.

So, you just drink this milk and you’re protected? Uh, not quite. The plan is to use the milk to produce a cream that you can apply to your man or lady junk before getting it on. Not sure how appealing that sounds. “Milk based cream” makes me think of yogurt — not the most erotic of substances. Hmmm, maybe it will come in chocolate?
