Cows produce milk for their young, not for other species to steal.
Humans are the only species that consumes the milk of another species.
Decide for yourself, natural or unnatural?

Every time i see this video, i end up crying.
All i can say is, i am glad and proud to be a veggy person,
knowing that i do not contribute to the torture of those poor animals.

I don’t remember the exact day, but it was during a summer that i decided to finnaly become a vegetarian like i had been wanting to for many years already. It has been like 3 years though, almost four,(actually this summer makes 4 yey me!) i am very happy that i went ahead and did it. Spiritually and morally i have grown so much since, and i still keep on growing although right now my growth and development has been limited and held back a bit.
Either way, now i am well in my opinion semi-vegan which to me is wonderful. It has been one of the best things i could have ever done for me and for the animals which i love so much.

Milk consumption and consumption of dairy products is it healthy or unhealthy. Well i myself do not consume milk and or dairy products.
Many dairy farms abuse and torture the milk cows, for every dairy product that we find at our stores, a cow had to suffer to provide it.
Cows milk is very healthy and a necessity for the calves.
But for humans it is not need, or healthy either.
Plus it is not natural to consume the milk of another species, humans are the only species who consume another animals baby milk. Almost like if a cat were to consume a mother horse’s milk. It is wrong and unhealthy, and not helpful for either of them.
In the same sense, milk is unhealthy and unnatural for people.
It has also been link to several illnesses, some include;
colic (stomach cramps), autism, chronic ear infections, insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (type 1 or “juvenile-onset” diabetes), acne, obesity, flatulence, constipation, mucus, and a variety of other ailments
Cow’s milk has also been proven to be the number one source of allergies in children.
Cows are treated throughout the United States with a hormone called Bovine growth hormone (BGH), (which is a synthetic hormone used to boost milk production in cows) This hormone has been linked to cancer in humans. And yet many cows are injected with this just to increase milk production. It is obvious that the milk farm owners only care about making a greater profit that they would rather risk the consumers health as well as the animals health and proper rights. This hormone is illegal in Canada, Australia, and the entire European Union, and it is still used here, well to me this is a load of bull. They know it is unnatural, unhealthy and hurting the canimals yet they refuse to bann it in the USA.
Milk production is also wrong for the animals.
Cows are mistreated, kept in horrid conditions and arent been attended to medically.Now it is very easy for cows to produce 100 pounds of milk per day, (10 times more than they would in nature). But, this is achieve through genetic manipulation and production technologies. Farmers artificially inseminate cows every year. They inject cows udders with growth hormones to increase their milk production. The use of these homones causes cow’s udders to become painful and swollen and so heavy that they sometimes drag on the ground, resulting in frequent infections and overuse of antibiotics. Furthermore the cow’s udders become infected and they internally blled, and pus bubbles form in their udders. Rusulting in milk infected with the cow’s blood and pus. The farmers way of fixing this problem in to use antibiotics.
Have some … pus with your cookies? If you down a glass of cow’s milk, you will. It may be white, but researchers say that every cupful contains somatic cells, i.e., pus.The dairy industry knows that there is a problem with pus in milk. Accordingly, it has developed a system known as the “somatic cell count” to measure the amount of pus in milk. The somatic cell count is the standard used to gauge milk quality. The higher the somatic cell count, the more pus in the milk.Any milk with a somatic cell count of higher than 200 million per liter should not enter the human food supply, according to the dairy industry. Therefore, anyone living in a state where the somatic cell count is higher than 200 million shouldn’t be drinking milk. There’s only one problem—every state but Hawaii is producing milk with pus levels so high that it shouldn’t enter the human food supply!
Make the right decision, and live dairy free.

For the good of the animals become vegetarian or vegan or at least start thinking of becoming one and give it great consideration. even the small changes and a small start count, any small changes we start do contribute to a better life both for the animals and for us.

iams sure does seem to care alot about our pets,
but how much do we really know about the company, or people who work there
what do we really know that happens in that factory behind closed walls.
“For nearly 10 months in 2002 and early 2003, a PETA investigator went undercover to an Iams contract testing laboratory and discovered a dark and sordid secret beneath the wholesome image of the dog- and cat-food manufacturer: dogs gone crazy from intense confinement to barren steel cages and cement cells, dogs left piled on a filthy paint-chipped floor after having chunks of muscle hacked from their thighs; dogs surgically debarked; horribly sick dogs and cats languishing in their cages, neglected and left to suffer with no veterinary care. ”
Peta organisation worked for over six months trying to get Iams to improved the animals conditions, to which Iams had promised would improve. In the time being of 6 months all Iams did was supply each animal with one rubber toy, if that is their way of fixing things then i have no words to say.
Dogs and cats deserve companionship, play, a stimulating environment, and they deserve to not be tortured in painful experiments. The animals inclosed within Iams walls are being deprived from this and more.
For Peta’s investigator, the struggle continued;
“Despite assurances in the Iams research policy that no animal would ever be killed, our investigator documented the destruction of 27 out of 60 dogs who underwent an invasive procedure that involved having huge chunks of muscle cut out of their legs. Two more of those dogs were found dead in their cages after the surgery; one had been suffering for 11 days prior to her death”
If this are the type of things Iams does to achieve a healthy meal
for our pets well am sorry but i’d rather take my business elsewhere.

In July 2004, PETA revealed the results of an investigation into a KFC-supplying slaughterhouse in Moorefield, West Virginia, where workers were caught on video stomping on chickens, kicking them, and violently slamming them against floors and walls. Workers also ripped the animals’ beaks off, twisted their heads off, spat tobacco into their eyes and mouths, spray-painted their faces, and squeezed their bodies so hard that the birds expelled feces—all while the chickens were still alive.
since 2003 people have protested or leafleted at KFC businesses more than 12,000 times! Many spend their time to show how it is morally wrong and unspeakable. How many demonstrations, how many boycotts , what will it take to change all this horror?! Only time and peoples devotion will tell. All most of us can do is hope for the best, but if we do not all take action or at least try to help in some way, it will all be to late.
