Buffalo milk news news

In the “It’s News to Us” department comes this item that comes as news to us. The Hyderabad News Network’s India News blog says (we will not say they “report”):

A nominee to the Ignobel Awards worked on a paper some years ago to compute the energy joules used up in the entire traverse from the buffalo’s bowels to the human, and concluded that the equivalent of the energy used per liter of milk – in its entire embodied energy cycle – could light up 75 homes for 3 nights with all lights burning!
