A super-milk

Some protozoa have attracted the interest of the biotechnological research world, since it has been found out that their cells are similar to human cells. In particular, the protozoan Schizochytrium, which is a marine alga, has been extensively studied, and it has been found out that, when added to the cows’ mangers, it boosts the production of a super-milk, rich in polyunsaturated fats, which strengthens the immune system of those who drink it and prevent cardiovascular and brain diseases, diabetes and sight problems. To obtain this fresh milk, each cow is fed 2 kilos a day (out of a total of 40 kg of feed a day), of Schizochytrium extracts that proliferate in particular in the Mariana Trench (Pacific Ocean).
