Dairy Companies Unite to Defend Dairy Claims

A New Zealand dairy co-operative, Fonterra, the world's largest dairy exporter, has joined forces with some of the world's biggest dairy companies (Dairy Farmers of America, Kraft, Nestle and others) to protect their sales by claiming that eating dairy products leads to weight loss. In the US, the Federal Trade Commission forced the dairy industry to back down on such a claim in its advertisements, given the scientific evidence supporting the contrary.

The dairy industry is motivated by greed and profit. It not only causes suffering to dairy cows and the environment, but also misleads the public into believing that dairy is an important and beneficial source of nutrients for humans. Given the ample evidence supporting the contrary, and as the information is made available to the public, hopefully more people will choose to replace their dairy intake with other more healthful and compassionate plant-based alternatives.
