EVER wondered what is in your food or how it was produced? Is it really healthy and how high is animal welfare? What is it that the dairy industry isn’t telling us?

Europe’s largest campaigning vegetarian and vegan organisation, Viva! are hosting a public talk and film showing in Cardiff’s St David’s Hall, taking an expert look at these issues, on Tuesday, May 15.

The event, in the St Asaph Room, will be led by Viva! founder and director and nutritional therapist, Juliet Gellatley. 

Her talk, ‘Why You Don’t Need Dairy’ answers the questions: is it natural to consume milk after childhood? Is it healthy or even safe? How do the natural growth hormones, milk protein and saturated fats affect us and why are they bad? 

Juliet says: “Come and find out about the calcium myth and why dairy consumption is linked to osteoporosis, diabetes and other ailments. We will explore how you can really improve all aspects of your health by choosing dairy-free alternatives in your diet.”

There will also be free tastings of a range of dairy-free alternatives to milk, cheese and other common foods. 

The event runs from 6.30pm-8pm and is free to attend.

A wonderfully cheery campaign called Goatober claims to be “ the month-long celebration of the dairy billy goat meat industry ”. Sorry, what? You want to glorify the killing of unwanted kids that are a sad by-product of the goat milk industry? Indeed!...
