The milk myth has spread around the world based on the flawed belief that this protein and calcium-rich drink is essential to support good overall health and bone health in particular at any age. It is easy to understand that the confusion about milk’s imaginary benefits stems from the fact that it contains calcium – around 300 mg per cup.
But many scientific studies have shown an assortment of detrimental health effects directly linked to milk consumption. And the most surprising link is that not only do we barely absorb the calcium in cow’s milk (especially if pasteurized), but to make matters worse, it actually increases calcium loss from the bones. What an irony this is!
We might as well confess: Donuts are one of the worst things one can possibly eat — deadly rings of fried flour, oil, and sugar (usually all refined) — but we LOVE them! Whether or not you share our soft spot for donuts, however, you probably share our concern for animals, so please join us in asking Dunkin’ Donuts to adopt more compassionate practices.
Dunkin’ Donuts is the largest company of its kind in the world, and it’s also one of the few that offers no vegan options: all of its baked goods contain eggs and dairy. With thousands of stores around the world, that adds up to a lot of needless death and suffering.
That’s why we were happy to see that the folks at Compassion over Killing have launched a campaign to encourage caring people to contact Dunkin’ Donuts and ask them to offer vegan options.
