PETA wants breastmilk in my Phish Food.

Exactly what world are these people living in?


PETA Media Center > Recent News Releases : The Breast Is Best! PETA Asks Ben & Jerry's to Dump Dairy and Go With Human Milk Instead
Quote:
September 23, 2008
Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, Cofounders
Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc.
Dear Mr. Cohen and Mr. Greenfield,
On behalf of PETA and our more than 2 million members and supporters, I'd like to bring your attention to an innovative new idea from Switzerland that would bring a unique twist to Ben and Jerry's. Storchen restaurant is set to unveil a menu that includes soups, stews, and sauces made with at least 75 percent breast milk procured from human donors who are paid in exchange for their milk. If Ben and Jerry's replaced the cow's milk in its ice cream with breast milk, your customers--and cows--would reap the benefits.
Using cow's milk for your ice cream is a hazard to your customer's health. Dairy products have been linked to juvenile diabetes, allergies, constipation, obesity, and prostate and ovarian cancer. The late Dr. Benjamin Spock, America's leading authority on child care, spoke out against feeding cow's milk to children, saying it may play a role in anemia, allergies, and juvenile diabetes and in the long term, will set kids up for obesity and heart disease--America's number one cause of death.
Animals will also benefit from the switch to breast milk. Like all mammals, cows only produce milk during and after pregnancy, so to be able to constantly milk them, cows are forcefully impregnated every nine months. After several years of living in filthy conditions and being forced to produce 10 times more milk than they would naturally, their exhausted bodies are turned into hamburgers or ground up for soup.
And of course, the veal industry could not survive without the dairy industry. Because male calves can't produce milk, dairy farmers take them from their mothers immediately after birth and sell them to veal farms, where they endure 14 to17 weeks of torment chained inside a crate so small that they can't even turn around.
The breast is best! Won't you give cows and their babies a break and our health a boost by switching from cow's milk to breast milk in Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Thank you for your consideration.
Sincerely,
Tracy Reiman
Executive Vice President

I'm glad there's still tree-hugging insane hippies around. They'll always be good for a laugh.

You are not seeing the bigger picture.They will breed a race of big titty'ed lactating gals who will have a lot of time on their hands when not being milked.Since they are essentially livestock they will seek to maximize their economic value.I picture the entire perimeter of Nevada being lined with dairy farms /brothels.What a country

I am all for the ethical treatment of animals but PETA is an embarrassment for the left.

Depends on the issue, Cayo. Much like the ACLU, PETA does some things that are terrific, practical, efficient, effective. But it also has a radical element that's out of line with practicality and hyperbole. Unfortunately, you tend to only hear about the latter.

PETA may be kicking open the scary door of genetic engineering with this proposal. Be very afraid!

They make some good arguments regarding the mistreatment of cattle.Just can't see producing commercial 'quantitties' of human milk or consuming it as an adult.Treat the cows better and pass on the cost to the consumer decreasing the demand for milk products.PETA'S ok sometimes just too many weird frivolous causes.
