Babies Dump Dairy

Written by PETA | May 3, 2011

PETA has designed the perfect accessory for the car-seat animal advocates set. Wearing our new diaper, toddlers can let people know exactly what they should do with dirty dairy products.  

Cow’s milk is contaminated with growth hormones and pus (yes, pus). Milk and dairy products have been linked to shortened life expectancy, heart disease, diabetes, strokes, and cancer.

If this cute kid has you inspired to wipe out dairy products and pamper your body with a vegan diet, check out PETA’s list of yummy dairy replacements.

    Gotta’ say, for an organization who places so much emphasis on the environmental benefits of a vegan diet (which I completely agree with), it seems counter-productive to be showing a promotional image re: milk with a disposable diaper. Disposables can account for as much as 2 tonnes of landfill waste per child through their diapering years. A cute cloth diaper is not only better for the child, but the environment as well. Just sayin’… a little consistency in your messaging would be a benefit.

    Dasha, “After looking at 34 published studies in 16 countries, researchers at Yale University found that countries with the highest rates of osteoporosis–including the United States, Sweden, and Finland–are those in which people consume the most meat, milk, and other animal foods. This study also showed that African Americans, who consume, on average, more than 1,000 mg of calcium per day, are nine times more likely to experience hip fractures than are South African blacks, whose daily calcium intake is only 196 mg. Says Dr. John McDougall, “On a nation-by-nation basis, people who consume the most calcium have the weakest bones and the highest rates of osteoporosis. … Only in those places where calcium and protein are eaten in relatively high quantities does a deficiency of bone calcium exist, due to an excess of animal protein.”” “Well-planned vegan and other types of vegetarian diets are appropriate for all stages of the life cycle, including during pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence.” – Position of the American Dietetic Association and Dietitians of Canada on Vegetarian diets.

    and don’t forget that for kids raising them to eat only vegan can give them protein deficiency and bones that aren’t strong and don’t need to be morally obligated to eat a certain way if it means that they get sick or things of that nature.
