Teens who are desperate for clear skin will be reminded of the link between acne and drinking milk when they spot our new "Got Zits?" billboard in Spokane, Washington:
Multiple studies have shown a conclusive connection between the consumption of dairy products and acne—the universal curse of adolescence.
And giving up milk has another benefit for kids, who have a natural empathy for animals: Dropping dairy products means no longer supporting cruelty to cows. PETA's undercover investigation of a Land O'Lakes supplier found cows who were living and dying in misery.
Sign our Pledge to Be Vegan for 30 Days and get started on the road to clear skin and better health! And get that soy milk chillin'.

Toby - Your first comment about autism...wtf. Autism is as far as I know primarily due to neurological dysfunction, with a heavy genetic basis. I don't think your behavioural hypothesis has any support at all based on what we know, care to provide peer review articles in support?
Someofthemwanttouseyou - Milk consumption may correlate with acne, but it's obviously not the only contributing factor! Anything else you eat or drink that might contribute?
Does anyone have a link to the studies mentioned?

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
