This is the harsh truth about what really happens in the dairy industry. Not only do dairy cows & their offspring endure an incomprehensible amount of suffering, there is absolutely no reason for humans to consume cow’s milk. Read on, & if you haven’t already - ditch the dairy!
Here’s a euphemism, one that’s widely used within the dairy industry. Because cows’ milk is a secretion that oozes from the udder, it’s filled with a “somatic cell count,” commonly known as pus, with the national average hovering around 350 million pus cells per liter. Basically, this means that each glass of milk in America can have around an eye-dropper full of pus. Over the years, The Hoard’s Dairyman & other dairy industry trade journals have run a few articles about the pus content in milk.
When machines are hooked up to the udders three times a day to suck the cows dry, the machines, & the countless drugs & myriad injections of Bovine Growth Hormone, cause mastitis, & irritate & infect the udders. Pus, mucus, & infections are sucked out with the milk, & pasteurization—which cleans the pus, but does not eliminate it from the milk—creates a concoction of sanitized pus. Organic, chemical-free cow milk is not pus-free either. It actually has more pus than non-organic milk because when cows come down with infections, as they always do, chemicals are not being used to treat the infection. Thus, more pus accumulates in the system. Soy, rice, almond, hemp, coconut, oat & hazelnut milks (the vegan ones)—along with human breast milk—are the only pus-free milks.
Moreover, mother cows make milk for THEIR babies & for THEIR babies alone. That case is closed forever. No debate. No discussion. The jury is in. They don’t make milk for baby humans, adolescents humans or adult humans. The human body has absolutely no need for cow milk, just as it has absolutely no need for dog milk, giraffe milk, zebra milk, camel milk, goat milk or rhinoceros milk. This is why dairy is responsible for most allergies, asthma, Crohn’s disease, childhood ear infections, acne, & breast, ovarian, colon, prostate & pancreatic cancers.
Cows, like every other female mammal, only produce milk during & after pregnancy. Cows, therefore, are artificially impregnated (raped) once a year to keep the milk-flow going. Within moments after giving birth, babies are stolen from their mothers. From a business standpoint, the dairy industry has to steal babies because it can’t have calves sucking up all that milk that was meant for them when they would rather sell it to humans instead. Every time humans have a glass of cow milk, some calf is not!
Like male chicks on an egg farm, male calves are useless by-products of the dairy industry. Unlike the chicks who are killed at birth, calves are sent to veal farms and put in tiny crates with ropes and chains around their necks to completely immobilize them. No movement is ever allowed because no muscle development is allowed. The veal industry is only in existence because of the dairy industry. If you don’t eat veal, but still consume dairy, it doesn’t alleviate the suffering of enslaved male calves, or mother cows! When cows no longer produce huge amounts of quality milk after 3-7 years, they’re killed. There are no cow sanctuaries in the dairy industry. Ninety percent of hamburger flesh in America comes from the dairy industry.
