@Regrann from @vintage_vegan_ - Dairy milk accounts for about 80 percent of estrogen consumed through the human diet. And since all milk products are produces from pregnant cows, your milk contains about 33 times as much estrogen as milk from non-pregnant cows. From an economical standpoint, keeping dairy cows pregnant makes sense. Most of the milk you drink comes from cows that are kept pregnant for almost 300 days of the year. According to many studies, the milk of a cow that is at the late stages of pregnancy can contain up to 33 times more estrogen than that of non-pregnant cows.
Almost 60 different hormones can be found in cows milk. One study found that cows’ milk contains estrogens. Four samples of milk from non-pregnant cows were analyzed, free estrone were 23, 22, 27 and 24 pg mL, and values for total estrone were 162, 208, 174, and 243 pg mL. It gets better though, the #estrogen levels in milk is even higher during pregnancy of a cow. Levels rose progressively during pregnancy from a mean value of 80-100 pg mL at 60-80 d of pregnancy to a value of around 1,000 pg mL.
So that means you are consuming almost 1,000 pg mL of estrogen in that milk. Any amount of estrogen is bad but 1,000 pg mL is a nasty amount.
Drinking pregnant #cows milk can account to a staggering 60-70% of our endogenous estrogen exposure.
Researchers have long noted that many types of hormone-related cancers, such as breast, testicular and prostate, are significantly higher in populations with high levels of #milk and #dairy consumption. #uglybynature
Shame on you #dominospizza#dominos used to be my favorite pizza! No more!!!😡Regarding people who act on behalf of animals, Domino’s Pizza spokesman Tim McIntyre said, “The best answer is to be deaf. To not hear them, to not respond, to not give them a platform. The biggest mistake we make is believing that they are reasonable people. We’ve learned they’re not. That’s why they’re called extremists.”

The "Worldwide Vegan Chalk Bomb" unites thousands of vegans in an effort to raise awareness about the horrific suffering of farmed animals.
Last year, over 2,800 vegans participated. This time, our goal is to inspire at least 5,000 vegans to help drop our biggest "Vegan Chalk Bomb" yet!
The idea is simple:
1. Write a vegan chalk message in a public space.
2. Take a picture.
3. Post pics on social media with the hashtag, #VeganChalkBomb .
Please invite all of your vegan friends and share this event in your vegan networks!
If you work with a vegan organization, let us know if you'd like to help organize your own local event. We'll add your group as a co-host. #veganchalkchallenge#vegan#govegan#animalliberation#plantbased#dx#gutenmorgen#vegano#vegana#realestate#friendshipgoals
