Something You Don't Know About Me

I don't like cow's milk...

From here
This lack of love is not from being vegetarian because I'm all. Or from the belief that dairy cows are not happy cows because from the ones I've seen in my town, they are pretty darn happy.

So why not drink milk? Well here are my reasons:

1. I think it's weird. I mean we are the only species that drink another species milk, does that not seem weird? People will argue with me that we have a higher brain function so we're smarter plus if we weren't mean to drink it then why do we have the enzyme (lactase) to break down lactose? ...well a lot of us can't, I mean how many people in world are lactose intolerant? (Approx. 75% of adults worldwide have a decrease in lactase).

There are also tons of others reason (real or not) that people don't think we should ingest milk - see this article and make judgment yourself.

2. I don't like the taste. I've drank cow's milk in latte's and chocolate milk is alright but I've never craved a big glass of cold milk.

3. I think I'm slightly lactose intolerant.
I still eat cheese, ice cream, yogurt, although not in big quantities and sometimes, especially ice cream, gives me quite a stomach ache.

If you have an opinion on milk please share it with me. I urge you to do your own research and come to a conclusion that you're happy with. These are my opinions and nothing more.


  1. We are internet twins! I don't drink cow's milk (dairy makes me feel gross and I'm not a fan of the taste either), so I use almond milk instead! It's super, super delicious.

    1. Yeah Almond milk is the bomb! Although not in does weird things. :D
