Cow's Milk and India

During my recent visit to India, my sister told me that many parents are not giving dairy milk to kids, as it increases the formation of mucus, causing congestion and coughing.

I was so happy to hear that people are realizing that milk is bad for health. Recent studies have shown that dairy milk
causes diabetes, cancer and many other diseases.

I discussed the negative points of dairy milk, and many of my cousins, aunts and uncles also felt that the condition of milk producing cows in villages across India is pathetic. My uncle who knows many farmers told me that cows are injected with oxytocin harmone to produce more milk.

My 16 year old niece was shocked when I showed the pictures of cows milked by machines in dairy farms across India.

My niece was disgusted seeing the images of painful cows. My niece was interested to know about the painful conditions of animals in dairy farms across the world. We discussed everything from vegan food blogs to vegan lifestyle .My niece is not a vegan, but I'm sure she will be a vegan, when I meet her, during my next visit to India.

I'm confident that the percentage of vegans will increase by many folds in India, in a couple of years.
