I saw this ad over the weekend and couldn’t help but laugh. Seems like the dairy industry is definitely feeling threatened by soy, almond, other dairy-free milks, not to mention the wealth of evidence now available that suggests we should avoid cow’s milk at all costs. Check it out:
This “Real Milk Comes From Cows” campaign should really be called “Only Real Milk May Cause Auto-Immune Diseases and is Linked to Cancer and Heart Disease” if they wanted to be forthcoming, but I doubt that slogan would help sell many cartons of milk.
Speaking of milk, I attended a great talk by Doug Lisle, author of “The Pleasure Trap,” this weekend (thanks AJ) and he noted that when it comes to childhood nutrition, the only real thing that it’s imperative for kids to avoid is dairy products, due to the number of studies that suggest that dairy is responsible for children contracting a whole spectrum of auto-immune disease. Something to think about if you’ve got kids.
