Where do cheese, milk, and even ice cream come from? Go behind the scenes in the dairy industry for just one minute.
More information: Watch "Cowspiracy". It may be the most important film made to inspire saving the planet.
On dairy farms large and small, including on "humane certified" and "animal welfare approved" dairy farms, calves are stolen from their mothers within hours of birth. Isolated in lonely hutches for their first 2 to 4 months of life, or confined in "group pens" with other forcibly orphaned calves, they never get to know their mothers, or to experience the maternal warmth and nurturing they instinctively seek.
Opiate-like casomorphins liberated from the cow’s milk protein, casein, are accused of participating in the cause of such conditions as autism, crib death, type I diabetes, postpartum psychosis, circulatory disorders, and food allergies.
Few people know what happens to cows and their calves in the dairy industry. Even fewer people have seen it for themselves.
There is a widely-held belief that goat milk is somehow more ‘humane’ than cow's milk. However, in reality the goat milk industry is just as violent. Both industries forcibly impregnate the females, take their babies away and then milk the distraught mothers as much as possible before forcibly impregnating them yet again. This horrible cycle continues for a few years only to end with slaughter or with the mothers dying from exhaustion on the dairy farms, whichever comes first. (kinderworld.org)
