Milk from a cow is designed by nature to help a calf grow from an 85-pound baby to a 1,500-pound adult cow. Read: It’s not good for humans. Not to mention the fact that cows exploited by the dairy industry are forcibly impregnated (rape), have their children stolen shortly after giving birth (kidnapping), and endure painful mutilations, filthy and cramped living conditions, and neglect (abuse).

Why? So that humans can take the milk meant for their babies (theft), many of whom will be killed for veal (murder).

Luckily, there are, like, a thousand rape-, kidnap-, abuse-, theft-, and murder-free options to pour over your cornflakes.
