According to an article on Today.com, more men than ever are turning to breast milk for dietary and fitness purposes.

In a column out this morning, Today explains the purpose of behind men chugging bottles of boob juice and the benefits of breastmilk for the still-trying-to-grow boy.

“In an unusual twist, some men are turning to human milk in a quest to bulk up or improve their health, believing all the benefits it provides to infants can produce similar effects in adults. The trend is puzzling experts who say breast milk is meant for human babies, not human grown-ups. They worry about the safety of drinking milk from donors who are not properly screened.”

Bodybuilders are also barking the benefits of breast milk, calling it “the greatest supplement ever” on the message boards for websites like BodyBuilding.com.

So how are men getting their hands on breast milk? Black marketing buying of course.

“It’s not exactly a product you can pick up at the store, so when men are seeking breast milk, some are turning to sites such as OnlyTheBreast.com, which connect lactating women who want to sell or donate their milk with buyers — usually other moms, but not always. OnlyTheBreast.com has had a “Men Buying Breast Milk” category since its inception more than four years ago, said founder Glenn Snow, adding it’s not surprising there’s demand for breast milk among men.”

Experts warn against it, but some guys are swearing it’s legit, so here’s the question — if breast milk was certified fine for adult consumption and brought the same results as HGH or any other performance enhancing drug, would you give it a shot?
