IS TO PROTECT THE EARTH
Dairy cows and their manure produce greenhouse gas emissions which contribute to climate change. Poor handling of manure and fertilizers can degrade local water resources. And unsustainabledairy farming and feed production can lead to the loss of ecologically important areas, such as prairies, wetlands, and forests. Source
IMPROVE HUMAN HEALTH
Research consistently shows that a wholefood, plant-based diet, including plant milks, is beneficial to health. It can help prevent hypertension, obesity, diabetes, heart disease and some kinds of cancer. We don’t need cows’ milk to be healthy! In fact, cows’ milk is linked to a host of health conditions and does not contain nutrients that cannot be found in other healthier plant-based foods. Source.
AND TO REDUCE ANIMAL SUFFERING
Dairy products are among the most frequently consumed animal products worldwide. Due to the enormous volume of milk production, dairy cows, who are intelligent, empathetic, and affectionate animals, must endure uncomfortable and stressful conditions which do not meet even their most basic needs. ProVeg takes a look at dairy farms and draws attention to delicious alternatives to milk. SourceJoin Us...
