PETA's band of bovines had Georgia on
their minds when dairy farmers and suppliers brought their propaganda-filled displays
to the International
Our "cows" told passersby what
the dairy farmers wouldn't—that cows are continually impregnated in order to force
them to keep producing milk and that their babies are taken from them
within days or even hours of birth. Many male calves are
sent to veal crates,
while females are sentenced to the same fate as their mothers.
Considering the plethora of delicious nondairy milks
available, it's easy to have our milk and save cows too.

The many benefits of nondairy milks, such as lower fat and calorie content and zero cholesterol, make them a no-brainer for health-conscious consumers, but how do they stack up taste-wise? The Wall Street Journal performed a taste test on almond, soy, rice, coconut, and cow's milk, and the results are in: Almond milk wins!
Almond milk passed the real litmus test of milks, the cookie-dunk challenge, with a flavor that actually "improved the cookie." It was also a hit with a young Wall Street Journal reader who, judging by the expressions on his face, found almond and soy milk most pleasing to his persnickety palate.
If kids and cookies agree, then almond milk is definitely something those of us who still like sugary cereal and Saturday morning cartoons can get behind.

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.
