Milk and the dairy industry

A number of people ask me why I don’t consume dairy products, since the animals are not killed in the process. I hear often that “I couldn’t give up cheese.” When I became vegetarian many years ago, I felt the same way about cheese: I loved it too much to give it up. As I learned about the dairy industry, however, and how much cows suffer to provide us with milk and cheese, I simply couldn’t continue to indulge my love of cheese. This post explains well why I switched from vegetarianism to veganism.
