In the wake of New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s
anti-obesity proposal to ban
the sale of large sugary drinks
in the Big Apple, hip-hop mogul, philanthropist, and New Yorker Russell Simmons
has written to the city’s
health commissioner
, Dr. Thomas Farley, on PETA’s behalf, asking that the ban be extended to include
fattening—and cholesterol-laden—cow’s milk.

Dump Dairy for Life

As a vegan, Russell knows about the health benefits of plant-centered nutrition. He explained to Dr. Farley how kids who drink
large amounts of milk are more likely to become overweight. Plus, unlike soda,
punch, or lemonade, dairy products are loaded with dangerous artery-clogging cholesterol, raising the health risks even higher.

Be your own health commissioner—for your waistline and your
heart, ban dairy products in favor of delicious milk, cheese, and ice cream
made from soy, almonds, rice, coconuts, and other healthy and humane plant sources. PETA’s Vegan
Shopping Guide
can help you get started!
