The latest "super food" is...

this? Yes, says BBC News:

It's "rich in Vitamins B and C, and has ten times more iron than cow's milk." Can't wait for the marketing campaign.

It's GOT to be better than placenta. And a lot easier to obtain.

Have you ever tried to milk a camel?

I don't think anyone will walk a mile to drink camel's milk.

No way this will ever be marketed successfully in America unless drinking it gives you bigger breasts if you're female and a bigger penis if you're a male.

I'm getting this vision of camel dairies housing genetically modified camels designed to fit a milking machine. Maybe they will breed them to have shorter necks and no humps to fit the stalls better?

Now I've got that tune that they play whenever they show anything Egyptian running through my head:

Nee nee NEE NEE NEE nee nee NEE NEE nee NEE nee NEE nee!

Actually, we use Waterbuffalo milk.
It's higher in cream and sweeter than cow's milk, and it is locally produced...our cook buys it at the Palenke and scalds it so we can use it.
And they are gentle creatures, not nasty like camels...

There is a gory scene in "The Alexandria Quartet," describing a Beduin camp, in which Arab children come up to a group of camels sleeping in the night with scimitars and start whacking of the camels for and back legs and carry them back to the camp fire and roast them immediately for the meat. The camels are so surprised by the attack that they don't resist, or cry out, but just sit there, astonished and bleed to death.
