They won´t be giving too much away this early otherwise someone will try to copy it. It has to be commercialised and the milk put into the export market. That appears to be its primary purpose, to enable the export of fresh milk by sea as against expensive air freight.
I hope it's not irradiated or something nasty like that.

Irradiation creates free electrons which kill bacteria. Would irradiated food affect your gut flora? I bet it would. Why is it widely supported by the government? Because of food multinationals that get extended shelf life.

From wiki:

In Austria, Germany, and many other countries of the European Union only dried herbs, spices, and seasonings can be processed with irradiation and only at a specific dose, while in Brazil all foods are allowed at any dose.

You´re overthinking it. Read the article again. It´s not "irradiated". If it was that simple it´d already have been done years ago. It´s a newly developed process which has undergone stringent tests and quality control.

Yes, but how do we go about enlightening the researchers regarding this?.. I only was going to say that one can do little to stop the "progress" or reverse the way things tend to unfold.
