A recent, very fun conversation about speaking up vs. keeping quiet on diet choices led me to the keyboard tonight.
I was looking for a link to a favorite YouTube clip; this one is just beautiful, from John and Ivy:
It is bouncy and fun to listen to. I found that this dairy video has been added.
And it isn’t so fun. Not so upbeat. Not so cute.
It just shows and tells why, succinctly, dairy is off the menu for today’s ethically handsome man. Because in the end, though cheese tastes great and milk is cheap and it feels as if you are drinking something healthy, consuming the products of aggressive systemized cruelty is simply bad for you.
Worse for the cows, but really, really bad for you, too.
I mean, when a cow sees a friend they missed, they often do a happy dance. I’m serious.
These creatures do not deserve to be enslaved brutally. It isn’t complicated.
