Human Cheese & Other Delights

Before you

Before that dumbass vegan couple in Georgia starved their baby to death by feeding him soy milk and apple juice instead of breast milk (and all the subsequent outrage that caused), one woman was boldly going where few in the culinary world dare venture: making human cheese. More specifically, making Paneer from her own breast milk.

I've often wondered what would happen if such an endeavor was viable on a mass scale. What kind of Lady Cheese Products might we see on grocery store shelves?
