Medicine from milk: Harry Meade

"The next time you have milk in your coffee, just think of all these possibilities."

Synthesizing essential proteins for those who lack them is very expensive and time-consuming in a laboratory setting. What if we could get nature to do the work for us? Harry Meade shares an incredible and surprisingly simple idea — specially-bred animals that cultivate essential drugs in their milk. (Filmed at TEDxBoston)
