In the video she says: “As a mother, I experience the joy of raising my son every day. But not all moms are so lucky, other cows on dairy farms have their young traumatically torn away from them shortly after birth so that the milk meant for their calves can be sold to people instead.”
The strong video reveal the dairy industry’s horrific abuse of cows – including “dehorning”, a process in which calves have their horns gouged out or sensitive horn tissue burned out of their heads – as well as the damaging effects that the consumption of dairy products can have on kids’ health, including allergies, acne and type 1 diabetes.
“The best way to help cows abused by the dairy industry and keep your family healthy is to stock your fridge with delicious vegan foods”, Deschanel concludes.
“Please join me in standing up for all mothers by refusing to support the cruel dairy industry.”
