Happy Goats, Happy Cows, Happy New Year

2010 finally ends, being a difficult year of “getting-back-into-track” for the world and for innovation investment itself.

I want to end this year with happy Latin R&D news provided by the Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (INTA) in Argentina, where scientists after 6 years of research presented their “supermilk”, as the author of the investigation Ing. Gerardo Gagliostro has called it. The “super milk” is a healthier dairy product created by the combination of cow and goat milk, which is said can help prevent heart diseases, diabetes and tumors. The secret of the “supermilk” relays not only in this mixture, but on the special nutrition given to the cows and goats (such as soy, oilseeds and fish oil) in order to reduce saturated fats and achieve higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid and vaccenic acid in their production. It has no chemical additives and is all based in natural products, continuing the healthy life style trends. INTA states that their product, although not a medicine, it can strengthen the immune system and prevent the formation of tumors such as breast and prostate, diabetes and fat accumulation in the inner walls of the arteries. The “supermilk” is already being sold in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and other supermilk-based products have been already evaluated, such as yogurt, butter and cheese. The bad part is that there are still no news comments about the taste,we'll have to try that for ourselves.

I guess happy well fed cows and goats create happier products.

Happy new year and I wish you all readers a healthier, safer 2011... just like childhood days...
