Would you repeat the experiment with breast milk as this fellow is doing?

I definitely think this is probably the healthiest form of "dairy" possible. Would you consume human breast milk?

Guy Attempts to Survive Solely on His Wife???s Breast Milk

"When Curtis and Katie???s newborn baby spent time in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Katie formed a habit of pumping breast milk every two hours for fear it would dry up. Their second child went into the NICU, so Katie began the frequent pumping once again, eventually donating the excess milk once it was no longer needed. Katie got pregnant again after the second child, and once again, the baby had to head to the NICU, so she got to pumping yet again, but this time milk banks would not take the milk the couple attempted to donate for a variety of reasons, one of which being the medicines she was on at the time of pumping.So, Curtis and Katie had a large freezer (pictured left) of frozen breast milk. The couple eventually had to move, and they found that transporting all of the saved milk would cost more than they were willing to pay. Rather than throw the milk away, Curtis decided he would drink the milk and see how long his body could survive on only the breast milk. Naturally, the couple is blogging the experience, with the third day???s blog post currently sitting atop the blog, entitled ???Day 3 and no BMs.???

And I wonder if, when the poo comes, it will resemble toxic waste like a real kid!

Mine wasn't fantastic. Not in any way. But I hate goat dairy and it was pretty close to that. So, no no no no. No. I don't like this idea. No. Did I say no? NO!

I would +1 you for what (I think) is a Penny Arcade reference, but I'm out of up votes for the day. :(

Out of curiosity, I tasted my own back when I was nursing my babies. It's actually quite fantastic.

While I think it would certainly keep him alive and provide some damn fine nutrition, the macronutrient ratios are designed for the rapid growth of infants (high fat, high carb, low protein). I would expect a bit of spare tire formation if he ingested it to satiety over an extended period of time.

While I suppose that, given as it's a natural source of essentially perfect nutrition for human babies, I shouldn't think that's gross... I do. I really do.

Nope. This is one instance where I cast my lot with the benighted Puritans.
