PETA is wrong again: milk is good for your heart
PETA has an ideology: animals are morally equal to people. It has one goal: no human property or instrumental use of animals. No exceptions.
As committed ideologues, PETA goes into hiding to advance these goals. For example, the group claims that animal research offers no benefit to humans – an obvious baloney.
All in moderation
Animal rights ideologues also claim that eating animals or consuming dairy products is bad for our health. Everything in moderation, of course, but we are naturally omnivorous. Meat and animal by-products are good for us. Veganism is dangerous for the health of young children as bones and brains develop, and can be dangerous for adults unless supplements are included in the diet.
Now a new study published in the International Journal of Obesity shows that drinking milk may slightly reduce the risk of heart disease. Of Study results history:
Milk isn’t only good for your bones, but it’s also good for your heart, new research shows. An international team finds that drinking milk regularly can significantly reduce the risk of developing heart disease.
Their results reveal that milk drinkers also have lower cholesterol levels, which can cause blockages in the arteries and lead to a heart attack or stroke. Overall, those who drink milk every day reduced their risk of coronary heart disease by 14%.
Milk is also good for the brain:
Milk has a long history of helping build healthy bones and supplying the body with vitamins and proteins. Scientists also believe it can boost brain power. A previous study of nearly 1,000 people found that those who drank milk performed better on concentration and learning tests.
It is believed that certain nutrients in dairy products, such as magnesium, may help prevent memory loss. They can also help protect against heart disease and high blood pressure, which in turn maintains the brain’s ability to function properly. Better blood circulation carries more oxygen to the brain.
I have no complaints against people who refrain from consuming animal products for moral reasons. Making choices based on one’s moral vision is one aspect of human exceptionalism.
Always remember that “animal rights” is not at all the same as “animal welfare”. Have milk?
