Emily Deschanel: Ditch Dairy!

Actor Emily Deschanel may be best known as the star of FOX's beloved hit crime drama Bones, but off screen, she is a fierce defender of animals, a devout vegan, and a compassionate mother. In her brand-new exposť for PETA, Emily gives a behind-the-scenes look at the cruel dairy industry, in which mother cows are robbed of the opportunity to love and nurture their babies as their calves are violently torn away from them shortly after birth. Emily challenges all moms to consider how heartbreaking it would be to have your baby stolen and sold into a life of pain and suffering.

Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do: to nourish their young. But the millions of cows who live on U.S. dairy farms are forced into a vicious cycle of continuous pregnancy—often through artificial insemination—so that they will produce milk for human consumption. Male calves end up in veal crates―a fate characterized by confinement, darkness, malnutrition, and slaughter. Female calves meet the same merciless fate as their mothers—they are hooked up to milking machines, genetically manipulated, and often drugged in order to force them to produce about four and a half times as much milk as they naturally would.

In addition to the dairy industry being unspeakably cruel, dairy products have been linked to some of our nation's biggest health ailments, including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, asthma, allergies, obesity, and more.
