When Rachel Lim’s husband brought a microscope home from work, she decided to have some fun. She wanted to know what her breast milk looked like up close and what she saw is fascinating. The particles can be seen “moving and quivering”, as if they are alive. Of course, it’s not news that breast milk is alive; it’s full of bacterial cells, white blood cells and and stem cells. Scientists determined this long ago. To see it in action is amazing, though. The full video can be seen on Rachel’s Facebook.
Earlier this year a woman put a microscopic photo of her breast milk on her Imgur. True to it’s name, it looks like liquid gold and is beautiful.
