In this episode, Alison chats a bit about her trip to the States last week and visiting the vegan restaurant in Bellingham, WA called Bloom. June is Dairy Alternative Month and we talk about some milk and cheese alternatives to dairy for those who are thinking of making a transition to go dairy-free. We also present some of Dr. Will Tuttle’s written commentary on the Conklin Dairy Farm investigation, entitled “Memorial Day for the Animals”, which can be read here. “Dairy: 6 Reasons You Should Avoid it At All Costs”, by Dr. Mark Hyman follows, and then a feature interview with Nathan Runkle of Mercy for Animals on the undercover cruelty investigation at an Ohio Dairy Farm which was released to the public last week.
Dairy: 6 Reasons You Should Avoid It at All Costs
We present “Dairy: 6 Reasons You Should Avoid It at All Costs”, by Mark Hyman, MD, where we do a bit of discussion and commentary on the points raised here. For example, did you know that about 75 percent of the world’s population is genetically unable to properly digest milk and other dairy products? Dr Hyman is an internationally recognized authority in the field of functional medicine and has some important information to tell you about the nutritional aspects of animal milk that is so widely and frequently consumed here in North America.
Nathan Runkle, Mercy for Animals
Executive Director of Mercy for Animals, Nathan Runkle, tells us in a feature interview all about the investigation of Conklin Dairy Farm where video footage was obtained of workers committing malicious and heinous acts of violence towards cows and calves at the dairy. This video footage, since its release last Tuesday, has since gone viral on the internet and has been featured in over 1000 media outlets. It can be seen here.
