  1. “Got Milk?” Slogan Changed To “Milk Life,” Tupac Rolls Over In His Grave

    Bold mooooove, Milk.

    Got nostalgia? After 11 years, the Milk Processor Education Program is ditching its iconic "Got Milk?" catchphrase in an effort to combat a growing interest in non-dairy alternatives. Yesterday the new campaign began celebrating the protein provided by milk with a slogan that no one will be tattooing on their knuckles: Milk Life.

  2. Milk Really Does A Body Good, Contains a Cancer-Killing Peptide

    We couldn't find a picture of a cow punching cancer in the face, so this will have to do.

    Looks like your mother and those moustache ads were right - milk really is good for you, but not just in the way they claimed. Researchers in Taiwan have discovered a peptide fragment derived from cow's milk which really hates human stomach cancer cells; hates them so much, in fact, it just goes right ahead and kills them. Best use of milk ever.

  3. Physiologist Proposes Theory of Milk-Making Dinosaurs

    Outside of The Land Before Time movies, dinosaurs aren't exactly creatures noted for their tight familial bonds. One researcher, though, is suggesting that dinosaurs may have been more caring parents than we suspected, even going so far as to feed their babies a milk-like substance rich in antibodies and growth hormones. While lactation is unheard of in reptiles, Professor Paul Else points out that birds like flamingos, penguins, and even the humble pigeon produce "milk-like" substances, so it's not wild thinking to suggest that some dinosaurs may have had the same capacity to make something we'd very much like to try on our breakfast cereal... though probably only once.

  4. The Reason Why Neil deGrasse Tyson Has Apocalypse Milk

    On Sunday morning, Neil deGrasse Tyson tweeted a picture of his milk carton which is set to expire on December 21, 2012. That's the same date that the Mayan calendar supposedly predicts the end of the world, but it's also over a month away. That's some strange, and long-lasting, milk.

  5. 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."

  6. This is What Happens When You Run Out of Milk in Japan [Video]

    Generally, when I run out of milk, I let my cereal go dry and stale for a week or two until I can muster up the muster to mosey the eight blocks to the grocery store and buy some milk to moisten my stale cereal, which I then throw away because it is too stale. This, in turn, causes my milk to go bad because I didn't have any cereal in which to put it, and, oh, that grocery store. That grocery store is so far away. It's a vicious cycle of waste, shame, milk anxiety, and regret. It seems when you run out of milk in Japan, the Milkless go through another kind of vicious cycle -- a kind that must be seen to be believed.

    Beware the cows, my Japanese friends. Not all milk is enriched.

Taken as art or statement, it's an impressive to say the least See the full images below.

  10. Smart Milk Jug Stops Sour Milk Cold with pH Detector

    It doesn't take a science genius to know when milk has expired -- you just take a whiff. But if a sour milk detection mechanism that consists of 'your nose' doesn't appeal to you due to the fact that a positive involves you smelling rancid milk, you may be interested in British milk company Cravendale's latest gadget: A smart milk jug that detects sour milk via a pH sensor, which is connected to a LCD screen that displays "fresh" or "sour" depending on the results.
