“The dairy industry has long peddled the idea that milk is completely healthy, and even that it’s a critical part of a balanced diet. But the charming milk mustaches of viral advertising campaigns conceal darker truths. Milk has been linked to increased risks of cancer, heart disease, obesity, and other serious conditions. And the way cow’s milk is produced, along with its environmental costs, has long been hidden by an industry intent on generating profits at any cost….
Exploring the ever-expanding realm of dairy alternatives is a great way to reduce the suffering of cows on factory farms as well as reduce carbon emissions. Cutting down or eliminating dairy products from your diet no longer needs to be a sacrifice, thanks to products like plant-based cheeses, yogurts, ice creams, butter, and coffee creamers.”-
