From the mother cows who are slaughtered when their worn-out bodies decline and the babies who are taken away from them and sold for veal to the high levels of cholesterol in milk and your increased chances of developing prostate cancer when you consume it, there are countless reasons why people kick dairy “products.” But for those who aren’t in the know, here are some persuasive vegan milk commercials that are helping society move past drinking another species’ boob juice.
