Manufacturing cheese from mother’s milk is a taboo.
It was in the early nineties that I first had the idea of manufacturing cheese from mother’s milk. I didn’t realize it at the time, but my idea became part of an ongoing discussion with my friends.
What is this discussion about?
Many people’s first reaction to the idea: “That’s disgusting!”
But why do they react that way?
We eat cheese from cows, sheep and goats. In fact, we eat many different products from these animals’ milk. So, then why isn’t it completely natural and common for humans to drink human milk?
Is this a taboo with some inherent merit? Or is it just a matter of culture and education?
Culture, religion and education are major factors in our likes and dislikes, our acceptance and taboos, often on an unconscious level.
