Target: Dairy Management Inc. Vice Chair, Ryan Anglin
Goal: Publicly admit that there are harmful side effects of consuming dairy products
There once was a time when the vast majority of dairy consumers believed that yogurt, cheese and milk were beneficial to their health. In-depth, long-term research counters these claims, as well as provides proof that dairy is harmful to humans, rather than beneficial. Studies linking dairy consumption to illness are released regularly; illnesses included are asthma, eczema, arthritis and cancer. The dairy industry continues to aggressively promote its products, despite the harm it is causing to consumers’ health. This careless promotion must be put to an end.
Federal law favors the dairy industry, requiring all schools to provide milk at meal times or suffer possible funding loss with non-compliance. This requirement is extremely harmful, as studies show no other component within consumers’ diets causes such intense pain and suffering. Dr. T. Colin Campbell, author of The China Study, has proven through long-term studies that dairy is the cause of numerous ailments, including many forms of cancer. Studies performed before and after Dr. Campbell’s have come to similar, if not the same conclusions.
The dairy industry is heavily subsidized by the federal government. It cannot afford to admit that its product is dangerous. However, if the dairy industry were to admit its products are harmful for consumers’ health, it could be highly regarded for its honesty and concern. Admitting that its products are harmful may work for the industry, rather than against it, if it were to partner with organizations intent on helping the health of consumers. Urge the dairy industry to admit that its products are harmful, in favor of health, and dedicate its resources to sound, healthy alternatives.
Dear Vice Chair Anglin,
Consumers are opening their eyes to the negative side effects of eating dairy. The long-term studies on dairy and how it negatively influences health can no longer be ignored. I understand that, for the dairy industry, admitting dairy is harmful is incredibly dangerous for profits. However, there are many ways to approach the issue that will result in your industry being labeled as heroic, rather than deceitful, as it is now.
Joining forces with dairy alternatives could prove profitable, as that industry is growing daily. Moving forward with a campaign aimed at educating consumers about dairy and which forms of it are least harmful could prove successful. It is time for the dairy industry to stop lying to consumers and forcing school-aged children to have milk with every meal. Dairy is directly linked to serious health ailments–cancer, arthritis, asthma– as has been proven by Dr. T. Colin Campbell and other professionals.
I urge you, Vice Chair Anglin, to start working for consumers, rather than adamantly against them in favor of profit. Dairy is not beneficial to the overall health of consumers. Please end this war against their health.
