Now obviously I'm being sarcastic when I say the "joys" of it, because it causes a lot of pain to a lot of people. In fact, it's related to MOST of the problems in this world. Health issues (cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, e. coli... the list goes on and on!), environmental issues (sludge, contaminated water, and loss of biodiversity, anyone?), hunger issues (for lack of better wording - sorry!) in impoverished areas (though I guess that kind of relates to health), you name it, it can probably be traced back to dairy (and/or meat, including red meat, white meat, seafood, and eggs). All these problems are being perpetuated by the propaganda of the dairy (and meat) industry to consume their products, because according to them their products make us healthier. Sound familiar? In the 50s and 60s, doctors used to recommend consuming tobacco products. Now we realize that it's totally ridiculous and we know how bad it is for us, so most of us tend to shy away from it. I believe that this is what will soon be happening with dairy. Dairy doesn't do a body good. If you don't agree, then you need to see this video. If you do agree, still watch it so you'll have the power (knowledge is power, after all, is it not?) to defend yourself against the, ahem, stupidity and/or ignorance of some stubborn dairy (and meat) consumers who will preach just as the ads tell them to.
What's your stance on milk? I'm quite sure that I've made mine clear, though I haven't even really gotten into it. Should I do a full post on it? Lemme know!
