Politicians in Denmark are dropping animal products and going vegan to tackle climate change. A group of Danish members of parliament are taking a 22-day vegan challenge – similar to the one tested out by Beyoncé. Politicians from both the Alternative and the Red-Green Alliance parties are giving up animal products in order to highlight how much damage intensive animal farming does to our planet. ‘No doubt that this will be a huge challenge, but I expect it to be quite a lot of fun as well, and it’ll definitely be to the benefit of the environment.

Gloria Steinem summed up one of the challenges of life very well when she said, “The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn.” This quote rings especially true when it comes to what we choose to eat. Our food choices are influenced by a range of factors that make it almost impossible to entertain change. Growing up, I was told that I needed to consume dairy for calcium, eat meat to get strong and fish to get smart. Imagining food without animal products on my plate seemed almost unimaginable.

We get it. Tell someone to stop drinking milk and they’ll think you’re crazy, but there are good reasons to do so. For years, the dairy industry has done a great job of promoting its product. Campaigns such as Got Milk? have been pushed into homes globally, and their effect has been dramatic. Milk being good for you is almost as guaranteed as death and taxes in most people’s eyes. Unfortunately, the truth is a little different. Here we take a look at 8 reasons why you really should stop drinking milk if you haven’t already.

If I could find something other than twelve orders of fries, that would be great. 1. You’re always introduced as “The Vegan” every time you go out to eat.

2. Then you have to explain what that means six thousand times.

3. So everyone apologizes for eating dead animals and inviting you to a restaurant that serves meat.

5. And you ask the waiter if something is vegan, but you don’t trust them to know the answer.

6. So you spend 20 minutes searching the menu for something you could possibly veganize.

7. But you realize French Fries and Side Salad with no cheese are your only options.

8. And you still have to try to figure out which dressings are “clean.”

9. You then sit through the entire meal enduring jokes about your food.

10. But it’s okay, because you’ll be able to go to a murder-free restaurant with fellow vegans tomorrow.

Veganism is everywhere! Celebs are giving up meat and dairy all over the place, and, of course, they’re preaching it to the masses. Then, there are celebrity vegans who, preachy or not, were into the vegan diet long before it became the “in” thing to do. Here is a ranking of them, in order of strictness:

Tricked Humans Into Believing They Need Milk

Despite the fact that one can get their daily recommendation of calcium, potassium, and protein from fruits and vegetables, the dairy industry has spent billions of dollars to convince consumers otherwise. Got Milk? We sure hope not. Despite being a somewhat tasty addition to coffee, tea, and delectable treats, the ingredient – when pasteurized – is highly toxic to the human body. In fact, physicians such as Dr. Willet, who has conducted many studies and reviewed the research on the topic, believe milk to be more of a detriment to the human body than an aid.

Portugal just passed a law requiring all public cafeterias to offer at least one vegan option to diners. That mandate applies to all public hospitals, prisons, schools, universities and other public buildings. Within six months, all these cafeterias must provide a minimum of one meal choice that is free from animal products. The law calls it a “strict vegetarian option.” What drove this remarkable change? The will of the people, of course. Soon, Portuguese vegans won’t have to struggle to maintain their ethical or health-based dietary choices when they’re stuck with eating cafeteria food in a public building.
