This Clever Prank Shows How Gross Drinking Milk Really Is

If the thought of drinking dogs’ milk makes your stomach turn, why is milk from a cow any different?

Clever Prank Shows How Gross Drinking Milk Really IsAfter being served samples of a new milk brand on the streets of London, people were left disgusted to find out they had been given dog milk.

Animal activist group PETA put together an impromptu focus group using random passersby on the street, asking them to try out free samples of a ‘new’ milk.

They then asked subjects to evaluate it before finally revealing their secret.

Unsurprisingly, their subjects’ reactions were intense, with some people swearing and spitting it out onto the street.

What Was the Purpose?

The video highlights an important disconnect so many of us have between the foods we eat and their origins.

We willingly drink milk and eat dairy products that come right from a cow, yet if it comes from a dog, we are horrified, even though the dog milk was generally described as tastier.

Those who drank it even said it was “sweet,” “whiter than white,” and “like a milkshake, but smooth.”

While you may be disturbed that PETA would resort to tricking people into drinking dog’s milk, as it turns out, the milk offered was actually soy.

They just said it was dog’s milk in order to film people’s reactions and thus pose a very important question.

The video ends with a message from PETA opposing the consumption of cow’s milk. It said: “Dog’s milk. Cat’s milk. Rat’s milk. Cow’s milk. We’re the only animal to drink another species’ milk. Isn’t it all a bit gross?”

Well done, PETA! Their experiment highlights not only the absurdity of drinking cow’s milk, but the flawed logic that allows us to do so while rejecting milk from other animals.

Do You See the Absurdity?

Have ever wondered who was the first person to say, “Hey look at those pink dangly things over there, I think I’ll squeeze them and then drink whatever comes out”? If you have, you’re not alone.

Humans are the only animals to drink the milk from another species.

While the prevailing argument holds that cow’s milk is very healthy and nutritious for us to consume, no other animals continue to drink milk past the weaning stage, so why should we need to in order to stay healthy?

Does Milk Really ‘Do a Body Good?’

Milk Does Not Do A Body Good – Massive New Study SaysThe short answer to that is no. Conventional pasteurized milk is loaded with pus, hormones, antibiotics, and other contaminants.

When heated past a certain point, the beneficial enzymes are destroyed, making it that much more difficult for the body to digest and utilize the nutrients within.

However, some people have had amazing success drinking raw organic milk to heal various health issues — though of course, raw milk remains illegal in both Canada and the United States. (Go figure.)

And What About the Cows?

Contrary to what you might think, cows do not produce milk unless they have given birth and are actively breastfeeding.

Sadly, the milk industry has figured out a way to completely exploit these animals by keeping them pregnant at all times, continuously milking them to keep the milk flowing.

In many cases, baby cows do not even get a sip of their own mother’s milk. Now that’s pretty backwards.

If Drinking Milk From a Dog Sounds Absurd to You…

If this sounds absolutely crazy to you, then you need to think long and hard about how you justify drinking milk from cows but not from any other animal.

Luckily, a lot of people are waking up to this hypocrisy, realizing that milk is not as healthy as we once thought, and are no longer choosing to participate in this type of exploitation.

There are many milk alternatives available now, including soy, rice, coconut, cashew, hemp, and pea, and many of these are readily available in grocery stores or can be easily made at home.

By choosing to opt out of supporting the milk industry, you are helping to bring fairness and equality to all the beings on this planet.
