I am not a Vegetarian nor a Vegan, I have eaten meat my whole life but in recent years I have made a effort to at least cut down on the meat I eat. I now try to avoid beef, lamb, pork and other meats. I eat Chicken but eventually I want to stop eating that as well. Until recently I drank milk but after reading some of the facts I have been reading I would definitely happily do without milk as well.
Many people online claim (and have been ridiculed for it) that milk contains Pus! By pus I mean disgusting liquid that comes from infected, overworked udders. Are the claims true? Amazingly YES!!!
Farming laws allow for up to 20% white blood cells in your milk, many of these white blood cells ARE from infected overworked udders.
That is not all milk also contains feces as Cows diagnosed with Johne’s Disease have diarrhea, and heavy fecal shedding of bacteria. This bacteria becomes cultured in milk, and is not destroyed by pasteurization. Occasionally, the milk-borne bacteria will begin to grow in the human host, and the results are irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn’s Disease.
And more…. Milk also contains antibiotics and growth Hormones. The Dairy industry and British Farming in general seems to be forgetting Mad Cow Disease and the effects that had on the industry.
I believe the problem is (as usual) money and poor governing leading to weak regulations.
Like most industries the Farming industry tries to produce as much as they can for as little cost as possible thus raising profits by keeping wages and other expenses down. This leads to much animal cruelty, low quality meat and pus, shit and antibiotic filled milk enjoy.
Time to go Vegan?
