Moo-ve Over, Elsie

PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) is asking Ben & Jerry’s to start using breast milk instead of cow’s milk because they say milking cows is cruel and dairy products have been linked to juvenile diabetes, allergies, and obesity. “If Ben and Jerry’s replaced the cow’s milk in its ice cream with breast milk, your customers – and cows – would reap the benefits,” wrote Tracy Reiman, executive vice president of PETA. Since it takes about 1-1/2 gallons of milk to make a gallon of ice cream, and a woman produces about 750 ml of milk a day, it would take 7.65 women’s daily milk output to make a gallon of ice cream. And they think milking barns are cruel now?

    I wonder if PETA considers the cruelty they cause people through their support of animals.
    The other thing one has to wonder ia, are calfs that still suckle being cruel? Or, which is worse for the cows. Milking them or mot milking them.
    PETA really need to think things through a bit better before just spewing out their “aninals first” ideaqs.
    God made animals to be food for man, and when it comes to a decision between God and PETA, im sorry but PETA doesn’t rate a mention.
