PETA Urges Ben & Jerry's To Use Human Milk

PETA Urges Ben & Jerry's To Use Human Milk

POSTED: 2:21 pm EDT September 23, 2008

UPDATED: 5:26 pm EDT September 23, 2008

VERMONT -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, cofounders of Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc., urging them to replace cow's milk they use in their ice cream products with human breast milk, according to a statement recently released by a PETA spokeswoman.

"PETA's request comes in the wake of news reports that a Swiss restaurant owner will begin purchasing breast milk from nursing mothers and substituting breast milk for 75 percent of the cow's milk in the food he serves," the statement says.

PETA officials say a move to human breast milk would lessen the suffering of dairy cows and their babies on factory farms and benefit human health.

"The fact that human adults consume huge quantities of dairy products made from milk that was meant for a baby cow just doesn't make sense," says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "Everyone knows that 'the breast is best,' so Ben & Jerry's could do consumers and cows a big favor by making the switch to breast milk."

Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, Cofounders

Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc.

Dear Mr. Cohen and Mr. Greenfield,

On behalf of PETA and our more than 2 million members and supporters, I'd like to bring your attention to an innovative new idea from Switzerland that would bring a unique twist to Ben and Jerry's.

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.

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.

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.

And of course, the veal industry could not survive without the dairy industry. Because male calves can't produce milk, dairy farmers take them from their mothers immediately after birth and sell them to veal farms, where they endure 14 to 17 weeks of torment chained inside a crate so small that they can't even turn around.

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.

Sincerely,

Tracy Reiman

Executive Vice President

That...is...disgusting. :puke:

I literally just puked a bit in my mouth. I mean, breast milk? Seriously? As my grandmother says, "Have you lost yo' damn mind?!"

And once again, PETA proves they are a bunch of fools who value animals' lives over human ones. Honestly, smack each and every one of them in the face with a rack of ribs.

If PETA were a cow, I'd skin it.

EDIT: Oh and PETA, you ass holes, I probably drink 8 glasses of milk per day, more than anyone I know, and I'm the skinniest non-diabetic cancer-free bowel-clear only-allergic-to-cats son of a bitch you'll ever see.

Impregnate that.

But you know there is an up side... All those silly cow milking contests that they have at minor league games in the summer have taken a fantastic new twist. :D

Oh and Island Style...I doubt Andy Dick cares much about breast milk...or the breasts that produce said milk.

And now back to my dinner of veal in cream sauce!

Now I am going to buy a baby cow just so I can staple his head to the ground. Then I would have some sweet, tender meat.

I am also gonna make one of these.

"We take eighteen ounces of sizzling ground beef, and soak it in rich, creamery butter, then we top it off with bacon, ham, and a fried egg. We call it the Good Morning Burger."

Dear PETA,

I'm sorry I can't hear you over the sound of how awesome my New York Super Fudge Chunk is.

Love & Kisses

PS- My BBQ smoker is stoked with mesquite. I aim to be dining on pulled pork sandwiches by tomorrow. :P

I'll be the one crazy of the group and ask the question... aside from the psychologically damaging side of it - wouldn't drinking human milk be much more beneficial to us? Afterall, it is the one and only liquid that exists solely for consumption by human beings, wouldn't that be a much more logical choice than a liquid intended for baby cows?

Many politicians are already starting to do this. It's also popular in Kazakhstan.

By that logic, couldn't we use menstrual blood for transfusions? I'm not saying you're wrong, but I'm just wondering.
