Consideration 29 - Species-Specific?

Governmental attitudes toward goat milk have hightened my awareness of other governmental short sightedness. The grey plants in the picture are wild roses. They were killed by the County of Wetaskiwin. They consider it to be a noxious weed. It is our provincial flower. I have never seen a wild rose growing in my crop land. Many years ago there was a half mile of roses growing in the ditch next to my land. The county sprayed them. The sorry state of insect polinators is due in part to lack of flowers to feed on. As usual the declining of polinators is someone elses problem.

“Human Milk Is Designed for Babies

Human milk is species-specific. The milk of each mammal species has adapted to supply its offspring with what is needed for optimal growth and survival. Some species’ milks are relatively high in fat to lay down a thick layer of body fat, while those with high protein use it for rapid growth and maturation. Those species that need readily available sources of sugar to meet the needs of their rapidly growing brains have milk that is higher in carbohydrates. Humans are the slowest growing and maturing mammals, but also have the most advanced brains. So it makes sense that the protein content of human milk is relatively low while the level of carbohydrates is high.”          

Species-specific logic proposes that if one adjusts the level of protein, carbohydrates, etc. that it will produce an appropriate milk for the species. This line of thought does not consider the other ingredients in milk or the quality of their ingredients. It also suggests that if deviation from these standards will produce negative results. These ideas are not correct. It is the genetic code of the individual that dictates what will be created.
