Fake Milk Made by Yeast with DNA Programmed to Make the Same Proteins Available in Cow’s Milk Coming Soon?

Silicon Valley-based Perfect Day Foods that creates a synthetic milk alternative says its animal-free milk is better for the environment and healthier than cow's milk because it's lactose-free, hormone-free, antibiotic-free, gluten-free and cholesterol-free. 

The new competition could cause a further decline among dairy farmers. In 1970 there were nearly 650,000 dairy farms in the U.S., but just 40,219 remained at the end of 2017, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
