Breast milk transportation via motorbike

http://media.soundmedicine.org/segments/050513_7.mp3

At Birmingham Women’s Hospital in England, a local charity bike service called Midlands Freewheelers has switched from delivering blood to delivering breast milk. After the milk arrives at the hospital, it’s put into small bottles, pasteurized and frozen. The Midlands Freewheelers has been so successful that it is looking to expand to other hospitals.
