Genetically modified milk may fix allergies

Posted: Updated:

A solution may be in the works for people who are allergic to cow's milk.  

According to an article on Health.com, scientists have found that milk produced from a genetically modified calf does not contain BLG, the protein that is believed to trigger allergies.  

The experiment is detailed in a paper published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.  Scientists say it's the first time they have altered milk's protein composition before it leaves the cow.
