Derinkuyu

December 16th, 2008 | researchmaterial

The underground city of Derinkuyu is an amazing-looking thing. I don’t have a lot of time today, and the online sources I’m quickly skimming aren’t agreeing, so it was either scooped out by Hittites from 1400BC or by Phrygians from 8000 BC. It’s twenty floors deep, though only eight are currently accessible. But look at this:

"HUMAN CHEESE!"

Seriously:

My extensive experience in making Paneer (cheese) compelled me to try something different, that is, making Paneer out of my own breastmilk. Basically this is human cheese. Why would I do that? Well, basically, there are about twenty bags (each 150ml) of frozen breastmilk in the fridge.. also, I have googled about this. Although people contemplated and imagined about it, nobody ever actually attempted to make breast milk cheese…

Some of the comments to the post are priceless.

Hey there kinda guess its my first time reading so much info on breastmilk and i have done quite a bit of reading and yeah i wanted to know are there any woman out there that want to sell their breast milk on a regular basis ? ? Cause i need it for an experemint to see if it rejuvanates cells and if it would help my arthiritase and no i am not old i am 21 ! !
