milk and the industry

The government has such close ties with the dairy industry because it's a money making machine. This is why money is invested in making you want to buy milk. This is also why it won't be removed from the Canadian food guide. They want you to buy milk because it makes the economy flow. Always remember; when you buy food you guide the industry. Every time you go to the supermarket you vote for the food you purchased. This is how it works. The industry does not care about wellness and health, they care about price stocks and their profits. Also, we are the only species on the planet who are crazy enough to drink milk from another species' mother. Forget everything you heard in commercials and all the culture behind milk, isn't it weird now??

Mooove over milk !

Let's start with milk and the industry . The government has such close ties with the dairy industry because it's a money making machine. This is why money is invested in making you want to buy milk. This is also why it won't be removed from the Canadian food guide. They want you to buy milk because it makes the economy flow. Always remember; when you buy food you guide the industry. Every time you go to the supermarket you vote for the food you purchased. This is how it works. The industry does not care about wellness and health, they care about price stocks and their profits. Also, we are the only species on the planet who are crazy enough to drink milk from another species' mother. Forget everything you heard in commercials and all the culture behind milk, isn't it weird now?? The problem is that milk is surrounded with emotional and cultural important. We are now a nation of milk drinkers. Milk is filled with sugar (that you cannot taste because of lactose) And unwanted fats.

The milk myth has spread around the world based on the flawed belief that this protein and calcium-rich drink is essential to support good overall health and bone health. But many scientific studies have shown an assortment of detrimental health effects directly linked to milk consumption. And the most surprising link is that not only do we barely absorb the calcium in cow’s milk (especially if pasteurized), but to make matters worse, it actually increases calcium loss from the bones. What an irony this is!

There are plenty of other foods that contain vitamin D and calcium.

High calcium foods include kale, broccoli, collard greens, and fortified soymilk & orange juice.
Their are alternatives to milk
Soy-Hazelnut-Hemp-Almond-Rice...
They are filled with nutrients and rich flavors.
They also have less sugar and less calories than milk.

Hemp milk is filled with omegas
Almond milk = Vitamin E
Hazelnut is rich in protein and vitamin E also
Soy is also high in protein and magnesium.

Here is a video that shows how easy you can make your own nut milk at home.
Taken from my new roots.

VIDEO

http://www.personalgrowthcourses.net/

Hidden Danger in Your Milk?

I posted this clip a while back but I feel that it is a very important fact that needs to be frequently shared so that people can know the truth. This is for anyone who drinks milk or consumes other dairy products and depends on the news media to report suspected health concerns accurately and honestly. Here you will find behind-the-scenes details about how a large share of America’s milk supply has quietly become adulterated with the effects of a synthetic hormone (bovine growth hormone, or BGH) secretly injected into cows and how pressure from the hormone maker Monsanto led Fox TV to fire two of its award-winning reporters and sweep under the rug much of what they discovered but were never allowed to broadcast.

After a five-week trial and six hours of deliberation which ended August 18, 2000, a Florida state court jury unanimously determined that Fox "acted intentionally and deliberately to falsify or distort the plaintiffs' news reporting on BGH." In that decision, the jury also found that Jane's threat to blow the whistle on Fox's misconduct to the FCC was the sole reason for the termination... and the jury awarded $425,000 in damages which makes her eligible to apply for reimbursement for all court costs, expenses and legal fees.

Features & Giveaways » Save dairy calves & win a free toon!


What would you do if you knew a secret that the whole world should know?

We need your help to expose one of the darkest secrets we know — and for your help you could win an original signed cartoon from Fluid Ink!
But first, we need to share the secret with you. This video shows what the dairy industry doesn't want you to see. Are you ready for the truth?

Share on facebook | Twitter

Cows are amazing animals. They are known to hold grudges, are great mothers, and will even babysit for each other! But when newborn calves are stolen from their mums on dairy farms, cows can cry for their missing baby for days.

Every year over 700,000 unwanted dairy calves are discarded as 'waste products' and killed just so people can drink cows' milk and eat cheese and other dairy products.

We know that nobody who sees this video will ever look at milk the same way again. And as more people discover dairy's dark secret, more people are ditching dairy and helping to save the lives of innocent dairy calves.

Use the form at the bottom of this page to send this vid to three friends, and you won't only be saving lives — you could also win this original signed cartoon to hang on your wall! Send it to more friends to increase your chances of winning!

Urge Cabot to Stop Cruel Dehorning of Cows

Cows, such as the ones used to make Cabot cheese, are almost always born with tissue that develops into horns. But because farmers are afraid to work with horned cattle, they use searing-hot irons or caustic chemicals to destroy calves' sensitive horn tissue. On older cows, workers cut off already developed horns using knives or other sharp tools or gouge horns out with a spoon-like device—often without using any painkillers whatsoever. Regardless of the dehorning method used, the practice is always cruel and unacceptable.

Specific dehorning methods vary among dairy companies and farms. Please click here to urge Cabot to eliminate this crude, agonizing practice and to simply breed for naturally hornless, or "polled," cows instead. A few minutes of your time will make a big difference for these animals

Tell Cabot Creamery to Stop Mutilating Cows!


Cows exploited for their milk, such as the ones used to make Cabot cheese, are almost always born with tissue that will develop into horns. But because farmers are afraid to work with horned cattle, they use searing-hot irons or caustic chemicals to destroy calves' sensitive horn tissue. On older cows, workers cut off already developed horns using knives or other sharp tools or gouge the horns out with a spoon-like device—often without using any painkillers whatsoever. Cows and calves struggle desperately during dehorning, tossing their heads, rearing up, bellowing, and even collapsing. These are all signs of severe pain and distress, which can last for hours after the mutilation—and if there are any complications or infections, recovery can take even longer. Your voice is needed! Please urge Cabot to put an end to painful and crude dehorning and to breed for naturally hornless, or "polled," cows instead. Because the polled gene is dominant, Cabot could see results quickly.

(Please note: Specific dehorning methods vary among dairy companies and farms.)

Stop Cruel Dehorning of Cows

I was shocked to learn that Cabot Creamery routinely mutilates cows during painful and crude dehorning. Regardless of the dehorning method used--whether it's burning a hot iron into a calf's head to destroy the tissue, using caustic chemicals to eat away at the tissue, cutting horns off a cow's head with sharp blades, or gouging horns out with a scoop-like device--the practice is cruel and unacceptable.

Please require all your suppliers to phase out the practice of dehorning and breed for naturally hornless, or "polled," cows instead. Until you do so, I won't buy your products and will encourage my friends and family to do the same.

Gary Conklin, owner of Conklin Dairy Farms, located at 12939 US Highway 42 N Plain City, Ohio 43064-8748 (telephone number (614) 873-8024) and his crew were filmed by Mercy For Animals committing horrific acts of Extreme Animal Abuse, Extreme Animal Cruelty and Extreme Animal Torture. During these horrific acts, ALL of the offenders were filmed laughing and joking about how they enjoy torturing these poor animals.
THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!!!

Gary Conklin, of Conklin Dairy Cattle Sales LLC, said Tuesday night in an e-mailed statement. ''We will not condone animal abuse on our farm.''

I have watched the video in it's entirety. Gary Conklin is on the video (at the 1:25 counter) and he is clearly abusing a cow. Gary Conklin is kicking the cow in the face, head and neck numerous times with extreme force!!! His claims of not condoning abuse can only be described as an out and out BOLD FACED LIE!!!

Sign this petition and demand that Gary Conklin and his crew be arrested and charged with Extreme Animal Abuse, Extreme Animal Cruelty and Extreme Animal Torture and that Conklin Dairy Farms in N Plain City, Ohio be immediately shut down!!!

I would like to say do unto them as they have done, but that would sink me to their level. Even animals are better than these ????? what to call them, NOT men, NOT human beings. How about cowardly, gutless, heartless beings in human form. I am so very sorry I watched this awful video. I pray that this house of horrors is shut down immediately and that these cowards get what they soooooooo rightfully deserve. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD SHUT THIS PLACE DOWN!!!

Hawk Pat over 1 year ago15 people like this reason This farm should no longer receive any type government subsidy.


nora navarro over 1 year ago15 people like this reason I called Gary Conklin today and spoke with him for about 30 minutes. We discussed animal cruelty on his farm and in the meat packing industry. He assured me that this is the exception and not the rule. He said farmers love their animals and that he did not know this was taking place on his farm. I felt better after speaking with him but then found out afterward that he was actually in the film and caught on tape kicking a cow repeatedly in the face and neck with force. I feel deceived. No one should be able to get away with this. This is a crime against humanity. Shut this farm down.

LAURA BOLLOCK over 1 year ago14 people like this reason You sick fucks deserve to be kicked in the nuts repeatedly and bashed in the face with a crow bar,and your head twisted round and round until you die!

ABC's Nightline Covers MFA Dairy Investigation and Fight Against Ag-Gag Laws
By Ari Solomon
Nathan Runkle, executive director for Mercy For Animals, appeared on ABC's Nightline last Friday to discuss attempts by factory farm interests to pass ag-gag legislation--laws that criminalize hidden-camera investigations by animal protection organizations, silencing whistleblowers and shielding animal abusers from public scrutiny.

The segment featured MFA's Bettencourt Dairies investigation, which uncovered abuse so disturbing it led to criminal animal cruelty charges. Watch the full report here:

China Modifies Cows To Produce Human Breastmilk

Genetic modification of livestock just took a turn for the downright weird.

Chinese scientists have announced that they have altered cows to produce milk more similar to human breastmilk. They claim to have introduced human genes into a herd of 300 cows that will cause the cows' milk to have much more "human" milk properties.

They hope the research, which the scientists claim is backed by a "major biotechnology company", would lead to mass-produced "breastmilk" that could even be sold in supermarkets to replace "formula" as an alternative to actual breastmilk. The milk from the modified cows was found to contain several proteins specific to human milk as well as having a higher milk fat content more akin to that of breastmilk.

More fuel on the fire

The debate over how women and families choose to feed their babies is fractious, with those on the pro-breastfeeding side pointing out that by far the most nutritionally optimal food for human babies is human milk - and it's got a huge benefit in that it's completely free.

Western society, however, is often sqeamish at the sight of a breastfeeding mother (despite the fact that we seem to be OK with the sight of breasts at any other time) and generally does not provide adequate support for women who choose to breastfeed.

Is it wise to use genetics to do this?

A more nutritionally balanced breastmilk substitute would certainly be welcomed by many. However, genetically modifying cows to provide that substitute is troubling.

How safe is this "milk"? Have the claims that the milk is similar to breastmilk been proven? What does the process of genetic modification do to the cow? Given that previous attempts to breed genetically modified animals have resulted in high rates of mortality, what are the ethical implications in doing this kind of work on another species - especially when women are perfectly capable of feeding their children with their own milk?

The scientists say it would be at least 10 years before a cow-produced breastmilk substitute could hit the market.

Cow's Milk: A Cruel and Unhealthy Product
   
Given the chance, cows nurture their young and form lifelong friendships with one another. They play games and have a wide range of emotions and personality traits. But most cows raised for the dairy industry are intensively confined, leaving them unable to fulfill their most basic desires, such as nursing their calves, even for a single day. They are treated like milk-producing machines and are genetically manipulated and pumped full of antibiotics and hormones that cause them to produce more milk. While cows suffer on factory farms, humans who drink their milk increase their chances of developing heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and many other ailments.

Cows Suffer on Dairy Farms

Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do—to nourish their young—but calves on dairy farms are taken away from their mothers when they are just 1 day old. They are fed milk replacers (including cattle blood) so that their mothers' milk can be sold to humans.(1,2)

Female cows are artificially inseminated shortly after their first birthdays.(3) After giving birth, they lactate for 10 months and are then inseminated again, continuing the cycle. Some spend their entire lives standing on concrete floors; others are confined to massive, crowded lots, where they are forced to live amid their own waste. Cows have a natural lifespan of about 20 years and can produce milk for eight or nine years.(4) However, the stress caused by the conditions on factory farms leads to disease, lameness, and reproductive problems that render cows worthless to the dairy industry by the time that they're 4 or 5 years old, at which time they are sent to be slaughtered.(5,6)

On any given day, there are more than 9 million cows on U.S. dairy farms—about 13 million fewer than there were in 1950. Yet milk production has continued to increase, from 116 billion pounds of milk per year in 1950 to 185 billion pounds in 2007.(7,Cool Normally, these animals would produce only enough milk to meet the needs of their calves (around 16 pounds per day), but genetic manipulation—and, in some cases, antibiotics and hormones—is used to cause each cow to produce more than 20,000 pounds of milk each year.(9,10) Cows are also fed unnatural, high-protein diets—which include dead chickens, pigs, and other animals—because their natural diet of grass would not provide the nutrients that they need to produce such massive amounts of milk.(11)

Mastitis

Painful inflammation of the mammary glands, or mastitis, is common among cows raised for their milk, and it is one of dairy farms' most frequently cited reasons for sending cows to slaughter. There are about 150 bacteria that can cause the disease, one of which is E. coli.(12) Symptoms are not always visible, so milk's somatic cell count (SCC) is checked to determine whether the milk is infected. Somatic cells include white blood cells and skin cells that are normally shed from the lining of the udder. As in humans, white blood cells—also known as "pus"—are produced as a means of combating infection. The SCC of healthy milk is below 100,000 cells per milliliter; however, the dairy industry is allowed to combine milk from all the cows in a herd in order to arrive at a "bulk tank" somatic cell count (BTSCC).(13) Milk with a maximum BTSCC of 750,000 cells per milliliter can be sold.(14) A BTSCC of 700,000 or more generally indicates that two-thirds of the cows in the herd are suffering from udder infections.(15)

Studies have shown that providing cows with cleaner housing, more space, and better diets, bedding, and care lowers their milk's SCC as well as their incidence of mastitis.(16) A Danish study of cows subjected to automated milking systems found "acutely elevated cell counts during the first year compared with the previous year with conventional milking. The increase came suddenly and was synchronized with the onset of automatic milking."(17) Instead of improving conditions in factory farms or easing cows' production burden, the dairy industry is exploring the use of cattle who have been genetically manipulated to be resistant to mastitis.(18)

The Veal Connection

If you drink milk, you're subsidizing the veal industry. While female calves are slaughtered or kept alive to produce milk, male calves are often taken away from their mothers when they are as young as 1 day old to be chained in tiny stalls for three to 18 weeks and raised for veal.(19,20) Calves raised for veal are fed a milk substitute that is designed to make them gain at least 2 pounds per day, and their diet is purposely low in iron so that their flesh stays pale as a result of anemia.(21) In addition to suffering from diarrhea, pneumonia, and lameness, calves raised for veal are terrified and desperate for their mothers.

Environmental Destruction

Large dairy farms have an enormously detrimental effect on the environment. In California, America's top milk-producing state, manure from dairy farms has poisoned hundreds of square miles of groundwater, rivers, and streams. Each of the more than 1 million cows on the state's dairy farms excretes 18 gallons of manure daily.(22,23) Overall, factory-farmed animals, including those on dairy farms, produce 1.65 billion tons of manure each year, much of which ends up in  waterways and drinking water.(24) The Environmental Protection Agency reports that agricultural runoff is the primary cause of polluted lakes, streams, and rivers. The dairy industry is the primary source of smog-forming pollutants in California; a single cow emits more of these harmful gasses than a car does.(25)

Two-thirds of all agricultural land in the U.S. is used to raise animals for food or to grow grain to feed them.(26) Each cow raised by the dairy industry consumes as much as 40 gallons of water per day.(27)

Human Bodies Fight Cow's Milk

Besides humans (and companion animals who are fed by humans), no species drinks milk beyond infancy or drinks the milk of another species. Cow's milk is suited to the nutritional needs of calves, who have four stomachs and gain hundreds of pounds in a matter of months, sometimes weighing more than 1,000 pounds before they are 2 years old.(28)

Cow's milk is the number one cause of food allergies among infants and children, according to the American Gastroenterological Association.(29) Most people begin to produce less lactase, the enzyme that helps with the digestion of milk, when they are as young as 2 years old. This reduction can lead to lactose intolerance.(30) Millions of Americans are lactose intolerant, and an estimated 90 percent of Asian-Americans and 75 percent of Native- and African-Americans suffer from the condition, which can cause bloating, gas, cramps, vomiting, headaches, rashes, and asthma.(31) A U.K. study showed that people who suffered from irregular heartbeats, asthma, headaches, fatigue, and digestive problems "showed marked and often complete improvements in their health after cutting milk from their diets."(32)

Calcium and Protein Myths

Although American women consume tremendous amounts of calcium, their rates of osteoporosis are among the highest in the world. Conversely, Chinese people consume half as much calcium (most of it from plant sources) and have a very low incidence of the bone disease.(33) Medical studies indicate that rather than preventing the disease, milk may actually increase women's risk of getting osteoporosis. A Harvard Nurses' Study of more than 77,000 women ages 34 to 59 found that those who consumed two or more glasses of milk per day had higher risks of broken hips and arms than those who drank one glass or less per day.(34) T. Colin Campbell, professor of nutritional biochemistry at Cornell University, said, "The association between the intake of animal protein and fracture rates appears to be as strong as that between cigarette smoking and lung cancer."(35)

Humans can get all the protein that they need from nuts, seeds, yeast, grains, beans, and other legumes. It's very difficult not to get enough calories from protein when you eat a healthy diet; protein deficiency (also known as "kwashiorkor") is very rare in the U.S. and is usually only a problem for people who live in famine-stricken countries.(36) Eating too much animal protein has been linked to the development of endometrial, pancreatic, and prostate cancer.(37,38,39) Consuming too much protein may also put a strain on the kidneys, causing them to compensate by leaching calcium from the bones.(40)

What You Can Do
The best way to save cows from the misery of factory farms is to stop buying milk and other dairy products. Discover the joy of soy! Fortified plant-derived milks provide calcium, vitamins, iron, zinc, and protein but do not contain any cholesterol. Soy, rice, oat, and nut milks are perfect for cereal, coffee, and soups and also work well in baked goods and other recipes. Many delicious nondairy products are available in grocery and health-food stores. Visit VegCooking.com for ideas, or call 1-888-VEG-FOOD to order a free vegetarian/vegan starter kit.

Every chance you guys get on all the forums remind people about the suffering of the mama cows when their babies are ripped away from them, and the bewilderment of the babies as they struggle, all alone, for their miserable short lives before they are killed for veal.

But most cows raised for the dairy industry are intensively confined, leaving them unable to fulfill their most basic desires, such as nursing their calves, even for a single day. They are treated like milk-producing machines and are genetically manipulated and pumped full of antibiotics and hormones that cause them to produce more milk. While cows suffer on factory farms, humans who drink their milk increase their chances of developing heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and many other ailments.

Cows Suffer on Dairy Farms

Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do—to nourish their young—but calves on dairy farms are taken away from their mothers when they are just 1 day old. They are fed milk replacers (including cattle blood) so that their mothers' milk can be sold to humans.(1,2)

Female cows are artificially inseminated shortly after their first birthdays.(3) After giving birth, they lactate for 10 months and are then inseminated again, continuing the cycle. Some spend their entire lives standing on concrete floors; others are confined to massive, crowded lots, where they are forced to live amid their own waste.

On any given day, there are more than 9 million cows on U.S. dairy farms—about 13 million fewer than there were in 1950. Yet milk production has continued to increase, from 116 billion pounds of milk per year in 1950 to 185 billion pounds in 2007.(7,Cool Normally, these animals would produce only enough milk to meet the needs of their calves (around 16 pounds per day), but genetic manipulation—and, in some cases, antibiotics and hormones—is used to cause each cow to produce more than 20,000 pounds of milk each year.(9,10) Cows are also fed unnatural, high-protein diets—which include dead chickens, pigs, and other animals—because their natural diet of grass would not provide the nutrients that they need to produce such massive amounts of milk.(11)

Mastitis

Painful inflammation of the mammary glands, or mastitis, is common among cows raised for their milk, and it is one of dairy farms' most frequently cited reasons for sending cows to slaughter. There are about 150 bacteria that can cause the disease, one of which is E. coli.(12) Symptoms are not always visible, so milk's somatic cell count (SCC) is checked to determine whether the milk is infected. Somatic cells include white blood cells and skin cells that are normally shed from the lining of the udder. As in humans, white blood cells—also known as "pus"—are produced as a means of combating infection. The SCC of healthy milk is below 100,000 cells per milliliter; however, the dairy industry is allowed to combine milk from all the cows in a herd in order to arrive at a "bulk tank" somatic cell count (BTSCC).(13) Milk with a maximum BTSCC of 750,000 cells per milliliter can be sold.(14) A BTSCC of 700,000 or more generally indicates that two-thirds of the cows in the herd are suffering from udder infections.(15)

Studies have shown that providing cows with cleaner housing, more space, and better diets, bedding, and care lowers their milk's SCC as well as their incidence of mastitis.(16) A Danish study of cows subjected to automated milking systems found "acutely elevated cell counts during the first year compared with the previous year with conventional milking. The increase came suddenly and was synchronized with the onset of automatic milking."(17) Instead of improving conditions in factory farms or easing cows' production burden, the dairy industry is exploring the use of cattle who have been genetically manipulated to be resistant to mastitis.(18)

The Veal Connection

If you drink milk, you're subsidizing the veal industry. While female calves are slaughtered or kept alive to produce milk, male calves are often taken away from their mothers when they are as young as 1 day old to be chained in tiny stalls for three to 18 weeks and raised for veal.(19,20) Calves raised for veal are fed a milk substitute that is designed to make them gain at least 2 pounds per day, and their diet is purposely low in iron so that their flesh stays pale as a result of anemia.(21) In addition to suffering from diarrhea, pneumonia, and lameness, calves raised for veal are terrified and desperate for their mothers.

Environmental Destruction

Large dairy farms have an enormously detrimental effect on the environment. In California, America's top milk-producing state, manure from dairy farms has poisoned hundreds of square miles of groundwater, rivers, and streams. Each of the more than 1 million cows on the state's dairy farms excretes 18 gallons of manure daily.(22,23) Overall, factory-farmed animals, including those on dairy farms, produce 1.65 billion tons of manure each year, much of which ends up in  waterways and drinking water.(24) The Environmental Protection Agency reports that agricultural runoff is the primary cause of polluted lakes, streams, and rivers. The dairy industry is the primary source of smog-forming pollutants in California; a single cow emits more of these harmful gasses than a car does.(25)

Two-thirds of all agricultural land in the U.S. is used to raise animals for food or to grow grain to feed them.(26) Each cow raised by the dairy industry consumes as much as 40 gallons of water per day.(27)

Human Bodies Fight Cow's Milk

Besides humans (and companion animals who are fed by humans), no species drinks milk beyond infancy or drinks the milk of another species. Cow's milk is suited to the nutritional needs of calves, who have four stomachs and gain hundreds of pounds in a matter of months, sometimes weighing more than 1,000 pounds before they are 2 years old.(28)

Cow's milk is the number one cause of food allergies among infants and children, according to the American Gastroenterological Association.(29) Most people begin to produce less lactase, the enzyme that helps with the digestion of milk, when they are as young as 2 years old.

Calcium and Protein Myths

Although American women consume tremendous amounts of calcium, their rates of osteoporosis are among the highest in the world. Conversely, Chinese people consume half as much calcium (most of it from plant sources) and have a very low incidence of the bone disease.(33) Medical studies indicate that rather than preventing the disease, milk may actually increase women's risk of getting osteoporosis. A Harvard Nurses' Study of more than 77,000 women ages 34 to 59 found that those who consumed two or more glasses of milk per day had higher risks of broken hips and arms than those who drank one glass or less per day.(34) T. Colin Campbell, professor of nutritional biochemistry at Cornell University, said, "The association between the intake of animal protein and fracture rates appears to be as strong as that between cigarette smoking and lung cancer."(35)

Humans can get all the protein that they need from nuts, seeds, yeast, grains, beans, and other legumes. It's very difficult not to get enough calories from protein when you eat a healthy diet; protein deficiency (also known as "kwashiorkor") is very rare in the U.S. and is usually only a problem for people who live in famine-stricken countries.(36) Eating too much animal protein has been linked to the development of endometrial, pancreatic, and prostate cancer.(37,38,39) Consuming too much protein may also put a strain on the kidneys, causing them to compensate by leaching calcium from the bones.(40)
