PUS IS IN MILK. If you don’t believe me, please do your own research. They don’t call it pus though, because pus is disgusting and the dairy industry knows people will stop drinking their milk if they know. Instead, they call it somatic cell count. The FDA legally allows an eye dropper of pus in every glass of milk. And that’s only the legal amount, of course most milk exceeds this amount. How do people not find that disturbing?
Why are 11 years olds developing breasts so quickly and getting their periods? A hundred or two years ago this would not have been happening as regularly as it is today. But think about it. If you pump hormones into a cow to make it produce more milk and grow fatter faster, and then you drink that milk full of hormones, where are those hormones going to go? They’re not just going to magically evaporate from your body. The harmful hormones are going to stay in there, screwing up with your system and damaging your body. If you drink milk right now, please please please seriously reconsider what you are doing to your body. I’m not even going to start talking about the horrible cruelty dairy cows are forced to endure, that’s a whole separate issue. The good thing is, there are tons of alternatives to drinking cows milk. Almond, soy, hemp, oat, rice, coconut and hazelnut milk are only a few examples. Do yourself (and the animals of course) a huge favor and stop drinking milk and consuming dairy products.
