Persuasive Writing- Dairy, Dairy Quite Contrary Picture the idyllic scene, you know the one I mean: grinning cows grazing on a grassy expanse of land, prancing about and mooing to their heart 's content. What about the scene in which a mother sets down two cold, healthy glasses of milk for her children to drink and they proceed to consume the delicious refreshment in mere seconds, leaving nothing but an adorable, frothy moustache above their top lip. Unbeknownst to this mother, and the 93% of Great Britain who drink cow’s milk, she has just handed her children a glass teeming with hormones, steroids, pesticides, and antibiotics. The dairy industry has spent copious amounts of money over many decades supporting the idea that milk is essential …show more content…
The results showed that drinking milk actually negatively impacted the women 's bone health. Although to most this would come as a surprise, Dr. Amy Lanou, nutrition director for the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine supports this study by stating that: "The countries with the highest rates of osteoporosis are the ones where people drink the most milk and have the most calcium in their diets. The connection between calcium consumption and bone health is actually very weak, and the connection between dairy consumption and bone health is almost non-existent". This is because milk has an acidifying effect on out body’s pH, and as calcium is a sublime acid neutraliser, it is utilised to return our body to its natural pH. Since the only place calcium can be found in such vast supplies is in our bones, this then results in calcium …show more content…
Calves born into the dairy industry have a road ahead of them that is inordinately short, but not merciful. Dairy cows are subject to brutal conditions before they 're sent to slaughter, being continuously tortured until they are physically unable to stand. The female calves will be kept for milking to replace the role of their mothers and as for the males, their future is bleak. Unless they are one of the lucky few selected to be fed up and used for breeding in the future, they are either left to die, or sent off to a veal operation where they will live out the rest of their fleeting life in a tiny crate. These tiny crates prohibit exercise and prevent muscle growth as this supposedly makes them taste better. Some people may be shocked or even sickened to hear this but fear not; this savage and primitive behaviour makes their carcuses mildy more appetising, so it’s okay. In addition to this monstrosity the only nutrition they receive is from a milk substitute which contains extremely low levels of iron so that their flesh will stay pale, as a result of anaemia. The veal industry is the most inhumane and malevolent industry that there is, just one more thing we have the dairy industry to thank for, as it was only developed to take advantage of the unwanted male calves. There are so many other factors contributing to the long list of negative outcomes of the dairy industry, including packaging and its effect on the environment, the incessant abuse of cattle, and all of the

Jackie also explains that just about any breed can be used for either a family milk cow or a beef cow. Before buying a calf everything should be set up for it so when it is brought home it is a quick transition to the new life. Housing a calf is very important; there must be a dry place for the calf to stay because dampness is the enemy to calves Jackie explains. She also says a calf can be raised in a ten by ten stall with a fenced in area outside for it to play and get exercise. A bottle with a nipple, the facilities being used, and milk replacer must be ready for the calf.
Valerie Wangnet's article introduces factory farming from the viewpoint of the livestock. She first tells an awful story of dairy cows bellowing all night long because their newborn calves had been removed for slaughter. This created an issue with nearby neighbors of the farm to which police released a statement claim that the cows were not in any distress. Wangnet chastises society for valuing the lives of some animals over that of others. She continues to compare the ways in which pets are treated compared to farm animals, and then lists the many cruelties that are inflicted upon farm animals.
After watching this video where Michael Moss speaks about Salt, Sugar, and Fat in the American diet, my views about the food industry have changed. I never realized that the government was supporting the dairy industry. It amazed me to learn that the reason Americans are so attached to their dairy products is due to the strong relationship of the government and the dairy industry. Personally, I really enjoy dairy products.
They are kept in extremely small pens to ensure they do not acquire a large amount of muscle mass, so the meat will be very tender once the calf is slaughtered (“Alarming Facts,” “Cows on Factory Farms). Another common practice in the dairy industry is to keep cows in an almost constant state of pregnancy and lactation, usually with about sixty days to recover between the birth of a calf and the next artificial insemination. (“Waiting Period). This maximizes the amount of milk obtained from each cow, as cows, as is the case with all mammals, only produce milk when they have an infant to feed. A practice that is slowly beginning to appear more in American industrial farms is tail docking, the amputation of about half of the
For example, Miyun Park, the vice president for farm animal welfare at the Humane Society, explains, “Today, economic growth and development around the world are leading to a rise in the demand for animal products. According to the World Bank, increased global demand caused total meat production in the developing world to almost triple between 1980 and 2002- from 45 million to 134 million tons” (Park). With only an abrupt time to adapt to the demand, farmers don’t have time to improve their farms. Also, they need more animals to slaughter. So, the farms are usually overcrowded and unsanitary because the farmers are not thinking about what's best for the animals; they only think about the production speed and if they are slaughtering enough animals to pacify the demand.
First, it uses Pathos, which is an emotional appeal to the audience, when it states that drinking milk will give you results. These results are portrayed as helping you transform into leaner, thus attractive, build more muscle, thus stronger, and be more decisive, thus more successful. Second, it uses Logos, which is the reasoning part of the argument, when it states that if you eat right, exercise, and drink three glasses of milk a day instead of sugary drinks, then you will be lean and build muscle. The ad makes this reasoning more persuasive, by stating that studies have shown this to tend to be true for teens that do it. The phrase “tend to” helps to make this statement more logical by eliminating the absolute and permitting their statement to not be true in some instances.
In my food?...WHY? Do you want to have an allergic reaction every time you eat something that you favor? How about the question why is it going on , how it’s happening, but you’re not eating the food you’re allergic to? What if I say the scientists and factories are genetically putting genes in one organism to another for the past 10 years. I feel this should have an end to it making us American sickly nationwide.
I. We consume 8,500mg of salt per day, almost all from processed food. This is only one of the many reasons people have poor nutrition. Humans tend to not know the difference between processed and real foods causing the nutrition levels in our society to drop at an alarming rate. For years this problem has been a big factor to obesity and illness. Real food is single ingredient with no chemicals even if they’re ground and put into a jar.
Did you know that some students would not drink as much milk if chocolate milk was taken away from schools? Even Dr. James Rippe in an interview with KSL.com said, “Some students would be drinking a lot less milk if it weren’t flavored.” Furthermore this just goes to show that some kids prefer chocolate milk or other flavored milk over plain old white milk. Also most kids don’t go “look chocolate milk has a lot of sugar, I want that!”
What is Veganism? A way of life that adopts a Vegan diet and believes harming animals for meat or products is wrong. Yet, people say vegans are the inhumane and unreasonable ones. Think about where the animals come from. They are not grazing around in a green field.
I have been in school for thirteen years, a staggering 76% of my life; and after all this time nothing has changed. Every single day I get served the same unhealthy, inedible lunch. It is something I can no longer do, I will no longer sacrifice myself to clench my hunger and thirst with this nauseating, unsavory, unappetizing food. Yes breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but many of us do not get to eat breakfast because we are rushing to get to school. So why not fight for a better school lunch that all kids can enjoy and energize from?

GMOS Introduction: I believe that GMOS are good for this world and for the people because the gmos can save us from starving when all the food is gone. GMOS are a genetically modified organism is an organism whose genetic materials that have been altered using genetic engineering techniques. GMO foods are okay to eat because some food that have gmos could have some genetic characteristics in them to make the food survive the hot when that food has to be frozen. GMOS are different from foods that don 't have GMOS Body 1: GMOS can save the world because if we had no food because if there was a drought and the plants died. Then we could just plant GMO foods, The drought won’t really do anything to the plant.
