OPINION: Promoters of 'healthy' plant-based 'milk' take note! Regular consumption of cow milk is not associated with increased levels of cholesterol, according to new research.
A group of topless PETA supporters descended on Sydney's iconic Hyde Park last week to protest the dairy industry... by flashing.
They claim that in the Australian dairy industry "mother cows are repeatedly forcibly impregnated and separated from their babies so that humans can drink their milk". This use of emotive language and deliberately comparing cows to humans is a common tactic used by these activists to excite the ignorant.
For what it's worth, the flashers stood bare-chested, with anti-dairy messages painted on their bodies and signs reading "Wean Yourself", "Dairy Is Cruel", and "Not Your Mum? Not Your Milk!"
