TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY BORIS BACHORZ-This photo taken on June 8, 2011 shows Camel milk traders from the Borana community packaging produce for refrigiration before it's distribution to Nairobi, in Isiolo, 300 kilometres north of Kenyan capital, Nairobi.. Recurrent droughts in Kenya in recent years have renewed interest in the camel and its resistance to extreme climates. "The camels are better than cows because they can survive drought, unlike cows, and I can continue to earn money during the dry season," said Halima Hussein, the wife of a camel herder, reffering to camel milk whos popularity has seen a tremendous growth in the informal markets in Isiolo and Nairobi. Nutritionists are full of praise for camel milk. "It is slightly saltier than cows, three times richer in vitamin C, known to be rich in iron, unsaturated fatty acids and B vitamins," said the United Nations for the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Among the Borana, the camels are said to belong to the husband and the milk to their wives. AFP PHOTO/Tony KARUMBA (Photo credit should read TONY KARUMBA/AFP via Getty Images)
