Experts from the Institute for stem cell biology and regenerative medicine of India propose to establish a biological additive, which will be based "milk" of cockroaches. About the thinking of scholars writes the New York.
On the body of the cockroach Diploptera formed nutrient crystals. This substance feeds the offspring. In essence, these crystals are a combination of sugars, proteins and amino acids. The nutrition in cockroach milk" four times higher than cow's milk. Scientists believe that crystals can be mined and make them unique biological Supplement.
While there are factors that stop the experts. The first problem is excessive calorie crystals. The second is the complexity of allocation of substance. Now scientists are conducting research on the human genome insects. Perhaps it will help to adapt the final product for human needs or even synthesize the "milk" without the participation of cockroaches.
