Mother of all Jackass Award Goes to PETA: Breast Milk Should Replace Cow's Milk in Ice Cream

PatriotPost.US, 08-39

Last week, we reported that vegetarians and vegans are six times more likely to suffer brain shrinkage than their meat-eating neighbors. (And about half a dozen conservative vegetarians wrote in to give us a piece of their mind.) This week, the militant vegetarians at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have called for the famous ice cream maker Ben & Jerry’s to replace the cow’s milk in their products with human breast milk. PETA claims it would lessen the suffering of dairy cows as well as 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,” said PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman, adding, “Everyone knows that ‘the breast is best’.” Realizing PETA was milking the issue, Ben & Jerry’s declined, but thanked them for expressing themselves.
