People are flocking to healthy, humane plant-based milk (almond milk is especially surging in popularity), and the dairy industry is none too happy about it. Big Dairy is trying to combat its flagging sales with a PR-driven “#MilkTruth” website and social-media campaign—but PETA knows the real truth about milk, and we’re not known for keeping quiet. So we’re re-releasing our popular “Got Milk?” parody ads and launching our own #MilkTruth social-media counter-blitz.
Don’t have zeal for the cruelty of veal? Male calves are of no use on dairy farms, so they’re often taken away from their mothers within a day of being born and sold into veal production.
Female calves don’t fare much better. It sounds like a Lifetime original movie: After having their sensitive horn tissue cut or burned away, most are forced into the same vicious cycle of pregnancy and stolen babies as their mothers.
Cow’s milk is formulated for baby cows, so it’s little wonder that it can cause all kinds of problems for baby humans.
Most of us would do anything for clear skin―stand on our heads, eat lima beans, or make burnt sage offerings to the skin gods. But we don’t have to, because as Woody Harrelson (and I) can attest, switching to dairy-free milk can make your skin switch to zit-free clarity.
Attention, men: Studies suggest cow’s milk and your prostate don’t mix.
If you’re OK with a drop of pus in your glass, you have fun with that.
