What type of milk should you drink?

Over the past 15 years there has been a steady decline in cows milk consumption and an increase in plant based alternatives in the US. This may, in part, be driven by the barrage of negativity surrounding cows milk on social media amongst “health” and fitness influencers. There is also plenty of articles in main stream media about cows and their influence on the environment. Let’s take a look at the facts so you can decide if you need to jump on the trend.

In this episode we look at the welfare of cows, nutrition, allergies and intolerances and the environmental impact of milk and plant based milk alternatives.
