Why should we choose plant-based milk? 🌱🥛

It is estimated there are approximately 270 million cows in the world producing around 900 million tons of milk for human consumption each year. A large part of them are raised on industrial farms, and most of their social, physical and psychological needs are violated.
For the dairy industry to survive, cows must be constantly impregnated, usually through artificial insemination.
Calves are separated from their mothers when they are still very young. The males are sent directly to the slaughterhouse, and the females are bred to face the same fate as their mothers.
Many of them have their horns removed without anesthesia as children. It is common for several to suffer from lameness and/or mastitis, a very painful and uncomfortable inflammation of the breast tissue.
Although cows can live more than 20 years, they are killed when they are around 5 years old, when they can no longer produce enough milk because of the over-exploitation they are subjected to.
Cows are very intelligent, sociable and feel emotions. Like any animal, they deserve to live autonomously and not be treated like objects.
Luckily, there are many plant-based milk options, for all kinds of tastes and needs, we can choose to stop contributing to the dairy industry, and at the same time do good to the planet and our health.
Plant-based milk involves less greenhouse gas emissions and less pollution and use of land and water than cow’s milk. Plus, most options have less sugar, more calcium, and less saturated fat, and they don’t have antibiotics, hormones in excess, or body fluids that you might want to avoid.
You can get a variety of plant-based milk options on the market or, with the help of a blender and a good fabric filter, you can create your own varieties of milk, according to your personal tastes, in a few minutes. Some only need the grains to be pre-soaked and others need to go through a cooking process, but all of them are very easy to prepare. Isn’t that great?
