It's not healthy (for humans)
Cow's milk is meant to help a baby calf grow very rapidly in a short period of time. When we humans drink it, it unnaturally stimulates a hormone in our bodies called insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), and unnaturally high levels of IGF-1 is bad news. It leads to cancer cell growth! Several types of cancer are linked to dairy consumption.
What about calcium?
Calcium is a mineral found in the ground, which is why plants grown in the ground are high in calcium. Cows eat tons and tons of calcium-containing plants --> their milk contains calcium. But calcium in milk comes with unwanted ingredients like unhealthy saturated fat, cholesterol, growth hormones, and antibiotics. So, let's cut out the middle cow and just eat our leafy greens!
Most people believe dairy products build strong bones. This is a myth! In fact, populations with the highest average intakes of dairy products also have the highest fracture risk!
Lower your impact
Cutting out the middle cow also cuts down on your contribution to climate change, fresh water shortages, and human waste catastrophes.
