"REVELATIONS that a restaurant in China is serving dishes cooked with human breast milk farmed from mothers living in rural areas have sparked public fury in China.

Several editorials in the Chinese press slammed the meals as "immoral", while online chat rooms blasted the restaurant owner and threatened to tear his place down.

"Goddammit, it is disgusting and wrong to deceive the young peasant mothers," who were reportedly used to provide the milk, one young woman surnamed Huang said on the website." [A much better reason to end the practice - The "public health" concern made me wonder what the worry was exactly - they were *cooking* with the breastmilk, after all. - JC]
