DNA In Cow's Milk Creates Hot-Tempered Babies
Updated @ 9/8/2015 : We have just identified the ustazah as Ustazah Fatimah Syarha. She is apparently a kind-hearted person, although she obviously has no idea what she’s talking about when she criticised cow’s milk. Again, that’s why religious teachers should just stick to their religion and not science.
Everyone knows that breast milk is the best milk for your baby. But some, as we have pointed out before, take breastfeeding way too seriously. During the TV3 Fiqr Wanita show on the 7th of August, 2015, Ustazah Fatimah Syarha (a female religious teacher) claimed that if a baby drinks cow’s milk, the baby will eventually become hot-tempered like a cow!
This most learned lady claimed that :
Kalau kita bagi susu lembu, maka DNA lembu akan masuk ke dalam badan bayi. Jadi ia akan mempengaruhi akhlak bayi. Mungkin bayi akan membesar menjadi orang yang pemarah sebab lembu ini cepat marah.
Here is the English translation :
If we give (the baby) cow’s milk, its body will absorb the bovine DNA. This will influence the baby’s character. The baby may grow up to be a hot-headed person because cows are hot-headed.
Seriously, stop maligning the poor cows. They are not hot-headed animals. This is yet another reason why we should not listen to religious teachers when they talk about science. They know NOTHING about science. If you don’t listen to your plumber when you need advice on a heart bypass, you should not listen to religious teachers talk about anything else but their religion.
If you want to know why everyone’s making a ruckus about this, head over to the next page to learn about the scientific facts behind cow’s milk and DNA in general.
The Ustazah Gets Ridiculed
Needless to say, Ustazah Fatimah Syarha‘s comments immediately received widespread ridicule online. Even the TV3 Fiqh Wanita Facebook post on the topic received a lot of comments criticising her claim :
