Check out this twist of logic gais:

Autistic children have been found to have trouble digesting bovine milk due to frequent gastrointestinal problems. They have been shown to experience great relief when switching to soy milk.

Therefore, milk causes autism!

Now, excuse me while I chug a glass of whole milk. Image

Cow's milk, espicaly that loaded with artificial hormones isn't the best but I can't see how it can cause autism. I know people who have drank it their whole life and are NT.

Well I thought PETA couldn't go any lower, but they've astounded me yet again. Who cares if thousands of parents think they're setting their child up to have Autism, cause they let their kid drink milk? Just another PETA stunt proving that animals mean far more to them, than anyone of their own species. They just don't give a damn. They'll hurt whoever they have to just to save some animals lives. I don't mean this in offense to vegans, I mean this in that PETA can't abuse people to make their point. Absolutely immoral and just plain rotten. And I thought Holocaust on Your Plate was the worst they could come up with. Just un-freaking-believable.


If it was not for Peta, car companies would still be killing pigs and monkeys instead of crash test dummies and they got Pom Wonderful to stop animal testing in just a few weeks. Peta has some extrimests in their midsts but sometimes that's the only way you can get across to some people. Hey animals mean more to me than people and I would rather save an animal than a person. But then I was never a people person.

Milk is bad for about the same reasons bread is:


1. More than 98 percent of convicted felons are bread eaters.

2. Fully HALF of all children who grow up in bread-consuming households score below average on standardized tests.

3. In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever and influenza ravaged whole nations.

4. More than 90 percent of violent crimes are committed within 24 hours of eating bread.

5. Bread is made from a substance called "dough." It has been proven that as little as one pound of dough can be used to suffocate a mouse. The average American eats more bread than that in one month!

6. Primitive tribal societies that have no bread exhibit a low occurrence of cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease and osteoporosis.

7. Bread has been proven to be addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and given only water to eat, actually begged for bread after only two days.

8. Bread is often a "gateway" food item, leading the user to harder items such as butter, jelly, peanut butter and even cold cuts.

PETA is not synomynous with the animal rights movement. I'm vegan and very much involved with advocating animal rights but absolutely loath PETA. They believe in the total liberation of animals, i.e. in their mind it's unethical to keep pets or any sort of domesticated animal, and don't believe in breeding any animals at all. They also have killed large amount of animals that they 'rescued'. The thing I hate the most about them is they make people think animal rights activist are as insane and irrational as them. Animal rights isn't about the whole population becoming vegan and setting all the animals free.

Peta does not think that keeping animals as pets is wrong. They just want them to be treated humanley. The people who say that are peta extremiests. Just about every anti something group has it's radicals, Peta is one of them. Peta only believes in euthinising animals if they are in extreme incurable pain. Have you even looked at Peta's actual website?

http://www.virginia.gov/vdacs_ar/cgi-bi ... &year=2006
According to this site, out of 9637 animals that were taken in by PETA, 6575 were reclaimed by their owners, 2981 were euthanized, 46 were transferred, 3 died in facility, and seventeen are still at the shelter. That's a lot of animals that were euthanized. Here's an excerpt from Ingrid Newkirk's blog (found here: http://blog.peta.org/archives/2009/03/w ... thaniz.php) where she talks about euthanasia. She says, "Most of the animals we took in and euthanized could hardly be called "pets," as they had spent their lives chained up in the back yard, for instance". Now it's all well and good to humanely euthanize animals that are terminally ill and are experiencing a severe amount of pain, but that quote does not support this. Her definition of what can be called a pet is a little too loose for me. A dog spending his life chained in a backyard does not make him unadoptable, and certainly does not mean that he needs to be euthanized. The vagueness of the types of animals they take into shelters and the high percentage of animals they kill are just too questionable to me.

I thought I read an interview with Ingrid Newkirk where she said that she did not believe animals should be kept as pets. Perhaps I'm wrong. They do, however, not believe in acquiring pets from anywhere other than animal shelters. They bash breeders with tasteless ads such as this:
[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rA2JuxRdlmA[/youtube]

Oh, and they also support breed bans. Yeah, really there for the animals. :roll:

My point is that PETA's one goal is shock value. People don't want to hear that they're being unethical because they decided to do their research and want a specific breed of dog, or want to raise a puppy. They don't want to hear that they're bad people because they eat meat. Saying such things alienates the general population from the "animal freaks" and doesn't accomplish anything. If they really cared about the animals they would think of better campaigns that talked about more humane ways of killing animals or ethical ways of eating meat or providing people with more information about how to properly find a good breeder or care for their pet. People don't take well to radical ideas being shoved down their throat.

Most of PETA are extremist. This very bad attempt the thread is dealing with is a sample. The official PETA adverts and many other things. they are officially extremists.
