Heather Mills is completely redefining: “my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard” by teaming up with PETA to urge Ben and Jerry’s to replace cows’ milk with human breast milk.
Tracy Reiman, PETA executive vice president, explains the campaign this way: “PETA’s request comes after reports that a Swiss restaurant owner will begin purchasing breast milk from nursing mothers and substituting it for 75 per cent of the cows’ milk in the food that he serves.The fact that human adults consume huge quantities of dairy products made from milk that was meant for a baby cow just doesn’t make sense. So Ben and Jerry’s could do consumers and cows a big favour by making the switch to breast milk.”
I totally think Tracy’s on to something with the dairy thing, but I’d much rather down a huge glass of delicious rice milk than some random woman’s tepid boob milk. For real!
This isn’t the first time that Heather has outwardly supported other dairy alternatives, she recently was quoted saying: “Why don’t we drink rats’ milk, cats’ milk or dogs’ milk? The startling truth is that animals farmed for meat and dairy are now one of the greatest threats to the planet.The United Nations issued a shocking report on the environmental damage being done by livestock. I became a vegetarian for health reasons. Then I found out about the awful animal abuse in factory farms and dairy herds and became a vegan. The easiest and most effective way of cutting our contribution is to change our diet and go vegan.”
Heather’s right about one thing: vegans are super kickass! But what do you think about this human breast milk thing? Does it skeeze you out as much as it does me? Chime in and share your thoughts!
