Breast milk is really sweet and a whole lot better then anything you buy in a store. Although, I could see being weirded out because you never know what could be in her milk. I'm not sure what can be passed through breast milk, but I know it has to be screened in order to be used in a milk bank. So that would bother me-_-
#95 has a point. Besides the obvious ick factor, I'd be concerned about what was passed through the milk, too. Any illnesses or medications the woman may have been taking could have been passed along to OP. If she's producing milk, I assume she's recently had a baby, and I'd hope she's being healthy for the baby's sake, but you never know! I don't see the problem in making the brownies that way (to each their own), but she definitely should have given everyone a heads up before they were consumed.
I don't see a problem at all you wouldnt tell some one that you had put cows milk in the brownies and breast milk is a hell of a lot healthier I dont see why everyone get so repulsed by breast milk its natural has all the nutrients you need if you drink cows milk that's just breast milk perfectly designed for cattle
Sure, breast milk surely is more nutritious than milk from a cow. I also think it is highly unlikely that this way any diseases will be passed. But that is completely not the point. The point is that this woman made brownies with an ingredient she knew her guests will find... unpleasant. It simply does not matter how harmless said incredient actually is, she used it with the only purpose to disgust people and that is what matters here.
Breast milk isn't bad for you, it's safe for adults to drink, but not exactly suggested. The thought of it may be gross, but if they were good and you're not sick, there is no harm. It was just a joke, and it's not like you're going to die from it.
Although most mammals (and humans) are not adapted to digest milk properly after childhood, certain populations (northern european) are adapted to be able to digest milk properly throughout their adult life. Thus, it would not be at all incorrect to say those populations have, in fact, evolved to drink milk from other mammals, and it is not at all abnormal.
