You Said It: Readers Comment on the Treatment of Farm Animals and Cows Producing Human Milk (Video)

Once again, we have scoured Facebook to find the posts that were really resonating with you. Pondering whether farm animals deserve the same respect as pets and whether the cows producing human-like milk is great or gross really had you talking. I sat down and highlighted some of my favorites in this video.New York Times Food Columnist, Mark Bittman asked: Why don't farm animals get the same respect as pets? For many, this question underlined the irony and cruelty of many laws and attitudes towards the animals in our lives.

Meanwhile, researchers in China announced that they have genetically modified some 200 cows so that the milk they produce is similar to human milk. Many readers thought that in this case, the "eureka!" should be replaced with an "ick!"

Do you have an opinion on these stories?
