I agree: from a health standpoint, everything I have read and heard suggests that dairy is the WORST. Hey, if even the Paleo boneheads know it's bad for you, it must be really, really bad, lol...

I think dairy is THE worst thing for human health, far worse than meat; well we know it is. I'm sick of the general public being brainwashed into thinking they need it. And that article was...hmmm...I'm going with nauseating.

Here's the text conversation after he read it:

him: That article is just sad. Why did you want me to read it?
me: To give you dairy guilt, naturally.
him: I want to share that.
me: How activist of you, lol.
him: That's just sad...

So, progress, maybe?

It's funny isn't it? Some people resist calling themselves vegan because they think that is somehow not what they are - they're just in it for the health. Eventually they come around to seeing what it costs in terms of suffering.

Others, like your friend think they are healthy enough, but adore animals.

I'm glad you are going to urge him to actually take this in.

Thank you! I just shared the article with a friend who is veg but "vegan-curious," and told him he needs to actually read it, not just acknowledge that I sent him the link, lol. He's an animal person; I've been trying to lead him away from dairy for a while, and I think this will be more persuasive than the health arguments against milk products.

Adults drinking human breast milk?? Do they have a fetish for being babies again? I was breast fed as a baby but... Once we are weaned do we really need to go back to it?

I could have gotten more graphic with my disgust but I will let it lie. And not to be politically and species correct either.

Cheese is the last thing on my list before being 100% vegan and seeing the truth about the poor cows just tipped the scales for me. I bookmarked the site to show dd too. Thanks for posting.

No kidding. Before I became vegan, I never equated the treatment of animals with drinking milk. It came in a bottle right?

Thanks Boni. The whole Dairy Industry is so violent. Not how we think of Old McDonald's Farm, is it?
