Tentang Susu Sapi
Sebelum kamu mulai membaca posting ini, aku sarankan baca ini.
Oke, ini kasusnya: PETA adalah organisasi yang terkenal dalam perlindungan binatang. “No Animals was hurt in the making of this show”, adalah ide mereka (aku ngarang itu 😀 ).
Dan sekarang mereka membuat terobosan baru. Yaitu, daripada menggunakan susu sapi, gimana kalau kita menggunakan susu manusia saja untuk membuat es krim. Hmm… nice idea. Here’s come their arguments :
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.
Tampaknya mereka melupakan satu detail kecil, jumlah susu yang diperlukan oleh perusahaan es krim jauh lebih besar dari restoran. Dan berapa banyak ibu yang diperlukan untuk itu?
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.
Oke… Susu sapi ke anak, jelek. Susu ASI ke anak berusia 5 tahun : baik?
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.
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.
