This is exactly why I became vegan. Except at first it was for my health, to eat healthy food. And I figured eating vegan was best. And then I started watching the videos like Earthlings and educated myself. I've been vegan for just over 2 months now and the thought of consuming anything that came from a living, sentient being makes me sick. Go vegan!
Why are we taught in school then that milk is good for us? well the big companies that are package and provide the milk are the ones paying the government and telling them what we should teach our children. This is so wrong, children and adults should only ever drink the breast milk of their OWN mother and once they're mature they should stop drinking it. So why do we think it's okay to drink the milk from a DIFFERENT SPECIES MOTHER? The only reason a cow produces milk is for her baby calf.
