Following news that the University of Wisconsin–Madison has been ranked the nation’s top party school, PETA is negotiating with outdoor advertisers to display an ad on bus stops near the campus noting that a side-by-side comparison shows that beer, not milk, protects bone and heart health. The ad reads, “Got Beer? It’s Official: Beer Is Better for You Than Milk”—and cites scientific studies that make the case.
“The verdict is in, and even beer beats milk hands down,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Alcohol in moderation can be good for you, but there’s no way to consume dairy foods responsibly when they harm our health and cause billions of cows to suffer.”
Consumption of dairy foods has been linked to serious health problems, including heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and cancer —as well as to conditions such as acne, excess mucus, and symptoms of lactose intolerance, such as flatulence. There is even evidence that dairy foods cause osteoporosis—rather than preventing it—by depleting bone mass.
