  • Since our birth, our parents have been forcing us to guzzle gallons of milk, insisting that it’s good for us but is it good for the animals?  Milk may be high in nutrients but at what cost to the animals that pr

      Hey Ben, I honestly love your article. It goes into great detail of why cows are overworked and it may not be good for the human population to drink Milk. But here’s a URL (https://www.rspca.org.uk/adviceandwelfare/farm/dairy/howcanyouhelp) that I found sharing how we as a people can fight this fight. I believe there’s a lot more we can do but it starts with the individual.

    • Hey Ben Wassup, I thought your article was really well done, but something near the beginning caught me attention. You said some people think milk has an acidy taste. I wondered why this was, and researched the acidity of milk. I found a great source https://www.thoughtco.com/milk-an-acid-or-a-base-607361 which says that milk has a ph of 6.5 to 6.7. This means the milk is slightly acidic, which accounts fo the taste, but is also very close to a neutral, like water, which accounts for why people like milk.

    • Hello Ben, I very much enjoyed your article Milky Milky Yum Yum Yum. One point that I found interesting was how you talked about the horrible conditions that cows live in to produce more milk.. It is a well known fact that farming is often cruel to the animals that produce food for us, but your point “the world’s demand for milk has risen at the same rate as the world’s population” shows that we need a lot of milk. I would love to see an article from you that shows different ways that milk can be collected in such large quantities without coming with the abuse of the cows that produce it. I’ve read articles about genetically modifying cows to produce more milk or even being able to do so without being impregnated, so maybe in a follow up article you could touch on that idea. Overall this is a great article. 10/10 IGN.

    • Ben, I agree with your article. Cows have been portrayed as a machine rather than the animal they are. Humans are overly consumin milk from the poor cows, that has caused them the live in inhumane condtions. Therefore what can we do inorder for this to stop? How can we as a society start to see the inhumane care of cows and their production of milk? Int his artcile i found it elaborates on the cruelty of how the aniamals are treated, it is horrible to think that we are part of this, and dont stop it. https://freefromharm.org/dairyfacts/
