Your Daily Gross-Out, Courtesy of PETA

The Baltimore Sun has an in-depth look at the health benefits of milk today, and of course PETA is quoted warmly and accurately:

A PETA website says that “dairy products are a health hazard” that are linked to “allergies, constipation, obesity, heart disease, cancer and other disease.” For a topper, the site says that milk is often contaminated with cow’s blood and pus.

I sincerely hope you are as grossed out as I am, especially since milk is one of my hangover remedies.  Gaaaaroooosssssss.

  1. the blood and pus are a ressult of growth hormones that make cows grow faster and make them produce larger quantities of milk. this causes irritation leading to infection of the nipples.
    get rid of growth hormones.
    feed the cows grass.
    they will feel better, and so will we.

  2. I used to work at a dairy farm. The cows only grazed on the grass a vegitation in the fields and were not fed any hormones what so ever. We would still find amounts of blood within the milk. It’s not a ridiculous amount. But think about it this liquid is coming from within an animal. How is one going to expect that it is created without any sort of contact with blood vessels.
