Do you still love your dairy milk?
Do you think that you cannot possibly give up cheese?
Most of us have been raised on dairy milk and have grown up believing that milk products are the ultimate foods without which we can never obtain optimal health. Then we proceeded to pass that legacy to our children and their children because there was never a doubt in our minds that milk does a body good, that milk builds strong bones and teeth, that milk keeps the skin youthful and that milk comes from happy cows that were put on this earth for our benefits.
WE WERE WRONG — DEATHLY WRONG! WRONG ABOUT MILK BEING GOOD FOR US AND WRONG ABOUT THE HAPPY COWS THAT WERE PUT ON THIS EARTH FOR OUT BENEFITS!
Let us together look at the real and honest truth. Now is the time to examine our choices, review our belief system, study the unbiased facts, look beyond old habits. Let’s open our minds for more rational thinking and our hearts for tapping into our innate compassion!
Fact #1: It is unnatural for humans to consume milk from another species.
Fact #2: Humans are biological herbivores whose digestive systems are intended to metabolize plants, not animal products.
Fact #3: Dairy milk and its derivatives are infused with pesticides, toxins and an impressive assortment of biological contaminants. Studies have shown that milk and its derivatives are directly linked to diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and countless other life threatening and debilitating diseases.
Fact #4: The dairy milk on our tables and all products made from them come from innocent animals that are held captive in horribly inhumane conditions, forcefully pumped with hormones, violently inseminated, milk cows are separated from their calves and once they are all used up, they are sent off to be slaughtered. Dairy on your table is VIOLENCE!
Philip Wollen, an Australian philanthropist and an animal advocate who had been a vegetarian for many years, eventually understood the truth about the dairy industry and was quoted as saying the following:
“It did not occur to me that dairy was an equally vile gulag for animals. Once I saw the carnage of veal, artificial insemination of cows; the removal of bobby calves from their mothers, the cruelty of induction and the violence of killing ‘unviable’ calves, dairy was another atrocity on the list.”
WOLLEN FIGURED IT OUT, WHEN WILL THE REST OF HUMANITY?
Dr. John McDougall is an American Irish M.D. who authored many books and gave many lectures on subjects related to the plant-based diet as preventive and cure for many degenerative diseases. Here is a video where Dr. McDougall talks about dairy:
