A cream made from human breast milk can eliminate warts and potentially treat skin cancer. Which is great news. All I hope is that the Swedish researchers who made this discovery were intentionally studying the properties of breast milk under laboratory conditions and that this isn't one of those miraculous-accident discovery deals because I would not want to hear the details of that.
("Dear New England Journal of Medicine: I never thought it would happen to me. It was the most amazing, once-in-a-lifetime discovery - and a night I'll never forget. But before I get to the juicy details, let me tell you some background: My wife had been breast-feeding for about five months and I'd developed a nasty case of genital warts. Then, one night, she put the baby to sleep early and came into the living room wearing nothing but a flimsy nightie and carrying a full Medela freezer bag . . . ")
