Ditch Dairy

OPINION

All across the mammalian world, a white liquid is produced by the mammary glands of female mammals upon becoming mothers. It is natural and necessary for their newborn babies to drink this secretion for the simple reason that Nature has designed milk to be the first food and complete source of nutrition for infants.

It is easy for newborn babies to drink their mother’s milk and benefit from it as their own bodies produce the enzymes required to digest it.

Many new human mothers these days choose not to feed their own milk to their babies. They prefer to bottle feed them with another mammal’s milk. That is not right because the milk from every species varies in content and composition to best suit the requirements of its own kind.

From the type of protein and the amount of protein, carbohydrates and fats to the level of vitamins and minerals, no two milks of different species are similar.

It then means that whether it is from a cow, a buffalo or any other animal, inter-species consumption of milk is not only unnatural but undesirable for a human baby.

If there are no genuine reasons, then mothers should breastfeed their babies for the baby’s optimum and long lasting health.

Breast feeding not only enhances the mother-baby bonding but also helps the mother’s own body get back in shape quickly.

The dairy industry forcefully impregnates female mammals and then separates mothers and babies so that humans can buy and drink that secretion. If you see this as unfair and cruel, then you must ditch dairy for babies and the rest of the family too.
