Austin, Texas -- Teens and pimples go together, right? Not
necessarily. According to a new study published in the Journal of the
Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, there is increasing evidence of a
connection between diet and acne, and one of the major villains is dairy
products. So PETA is negotiating with Austin-area outdoor advertisers to erect
billboard that shows a teen with a milk mustache and reads, "Got
Zits?"—a play on the old "Got Milk?" campaign. It goes on to
say, "Studies show: Milk and cheese trigger acne. Ditch dairy." PETA
plans to place the billboard at locations near high schools.
"The only people who benefit when teens drink milk from
animals or eat dairy-based ice cream are dairy factory farmers and the
makers of acne medication," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy
Reiman. "With delicious products such as soy milk, rice milk, almond milk,
nondairy ice cream, and faux cheeses on the market, kids don't have to
sacrifice their complexion and overall health in order to eat the foods that
A previous study by the Harvard School of Public
Health—called the Nurses' Health Study II and involving more than 47,000
people—concluded that the consumption of milk and other dairy products
significantly raised the incidence of acne. And Liz Vaccariello, fitness guru
and former editor in chief of Prevention magazine, wrote that within six
weeks of cutting back on drinking milk, her skin completely cleared of the blemishes
that had been plaguing her. A dairy-free diet can also lower the risk of
cancer, heart disease, and obesity in adults as well as allergies, ear
infections, and juvenile-onset diabetes in children.
Teens aren't the only ones who suffer because of dairy
consumption. Cows on dairy factory farms are genetically and chemically
manipulated to produce unnaturally high quantities of milk, and as a result,
many cows contract mastitis, a painful infection of the udder. Newborn calves
are torn away from their mothers, and the males are sold to veal farms, where
many are chained for months inside crates so small that they can't even turn
around or lie down comfortably.

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.
