Simone Reyes Explains Why You Shouldn't Drink Your Milk

It’s no secret that hip-hop music magnate Russell Simmons is at war with the American Dairy Association. With an estimated 75 percent of Native and African Americans suffering from lactose intolerance, he should be.

Not one to mince words, Simmons wrote a letter to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, protesting milk as the state’s official drink.  Milk made from soy, rice and almonds is much healthier, explained Simmons, and the production of these non-dairy drinks does not involve animal cruelty.

Thus, when his svelte, sexy and smart assistant Simone Reyes explained the dangers of lactose consumption in a post featured on the daily grind, Simmons hopped on the twitter and shared it with his loyal followers.

Using reason, combined with a touch of her signature snark, Reyes argues her point from a human and a humane perspective. Citing research from the American Gastroenterological Association, she explains that 50 million American adults are lactose intolerant, and that symptoms include nausea, diarrhea, cramps and bloating. If that doesn’t scare you, consider the man boobs, which result from the hormones and estrogen pumped into the cows to force them to produce more milk.

Health hazards aside, Simone Reyes cites animal cruelty issues as her main reason for just saying no to the proverbial white mustache. A video shot at Adirondack Farms, LLC, in Clinton County, New York indicates that dairy cows are poked and prodded with canes and poles, and denied any sort of veterinary care.

Watch, cry, then kiss the milkman goodbye!
