What’s wrong with dairy:

Wrong for the Cows

  • Dairy cows spend their entire lives chained in their stalls, and have their milk sucked out of them by milking machines twice a day.
  • They are impregnated by artificial insemination to maintain a high milk production.
  • Newborn calves are torn from their grieving mothers after birth, so humans can steal their milk.
  • The females are used to produce more milk, sending an older cow to slaughter, while the males are slaughtered or chained in tight crates for veal.
  • Dairy cows are slaughtered for ground beef when their milk production drops, after only 4-5 years, the first quarter of their natural lifespan.

Wrong for Your Health

  • Dairy products contain saturated fat and cholesterol – precursors to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.
  • Dairy products have been linked with increased risk of cancer of the breast and prostate
  • Dairy products contain a legally sanctioned number of pus cells.
  • Dairy cows are fed antibiotics, which promotes antibiotic-resistant “super bugs.”
  • Dairy cows are fed hormones to increase milk production.
  • Cow’s milk is designed to quadruple the calf’s body weight in only one year.
  • Many people are lactose intolerant – can’t digest the lactose in cow’s milk

Wrong for Mother Nature

  • Humans are the only creatures drinking the milk of another species.
  • Humans did not evolve drinking cow’s milk - hence dairy is banned from the paleo diet.
  • Dairy cows consume large amounts of food crops that should be used to feed starving humans.
  • The digestive system of cows discharges large amounts of methane, and their waste discharges nitrous oxide, both huge contributors to global warming.

Letter to Pizza Hut President

Dear Artie Starrs,

YUM! Brands is no stranger to vegans inquiring about plant-based options at their restaurants. Taco Bell has many vegan options and gets great buzz for being a favorite of people who choose to lead a cruelty-free lifestyle. There is even a vegetarian burger option at KFC locations in Canada. That doesn’t go unnoticed!

Pizza Hut already has some great plant-based options, including wedges, cinnamon sticks (with icing!), and vegan pizza dough, but we are asking you to take it one step further and offer a dairy-free cheese option on your pizzas. If you can deliver a pizza to space, surely you can deliver a pizza to vegans.

The number of vegans is constantly growing and Pizza Hut has an opportunity to be at the forefront of vegan fast-food options. Offering a dairy-free cheese is ideal, not only for people who don’t eat animal products for ethical reasons but for those who may have food allergies as well. In fact, approximately 65 percent of the human population is lactose-intolerant. That is a lot of potential customers!

Many people won’t eat animal-based foods because of the inherent cruelty on factory farms, the devastating impact animal agriculture has on the environment, and for health reasons. People demand dairy-free cheese for many reasons, including widespread availability, affordability, how well it melts, and especially because it tastes delicious!

FARM (Farm Animal Rights Movement) is one of the oldest farmed animal advocacy organizations in the United States and we believe in the inherent worth of animals, preventing animal cruelty, protecting the environment, and safeguarding public health. We believe, as do our over one million followers, that a dairy-free cheese in major pizza chains will be inevitable in the coming years. FARM’s campaigns and programs reach hundreds of thousands of young people every year, and according to our surveys, more than half of them seek out non-dairy cheese pizza!

We urge you to consider our request to offer a dairy-free cheese option at Pizza Hut and “Make It Great!” Thank you for your time and for your consideration.

Sincerely,
Farm Animal Rights Movement
