Milk alternatives are all the rage but cockroach milk?! The Doctors share a study from 2016 in which the research team at the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine found cockroach milk is the equivalent to human breast milk. The milk forms tiny crystals and to get them, the mid-gut of the mother cockroach has to actually be carved out! The milk was discovered to have four times as much protein as cow's milk.
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra points out that it may not be too realistic to think we're going to be seeing cockroach milk on the dairy shelves anytime soon. Ten cockroaches have to be killed and harvested to make half a milliliter of this milk. That means 1,000 cockroaches are needed for 100g of milk, which is only half a cup!
"I don't think it's gonna catch on," says plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon.
