Editorial Reviews

Review

“Got Milk? If so, Élise Desaulniers forcefully argues you’ve also got animal cruelty and human health problems. If you grew up buying the dairy industry’s marketing claims, this book may make you feel as if the blindfold has finally come off.” ―Paul Shapiro, Vice President, Farm Animal Protection, The Humane Society of the United States

Cash Cow is an exceptionally well-written book that truly breaks new ground. It is a comprehensive and well researched expose on the dairy industry that is also concise and easily digestible. In a thoughtful and supportive tone, Élise Desaulniers challenges the reader to critically examine his or her assumptions, and she provides the information necessary to both understand and free oneself from the perils of dairy. This book is a must-read for anyone who is interested in becoming more empowered to make informed, healthful, and ethical food choices."―Melanie Joy

“There is probably more suffering in a glass of milk or an ice cream cone than there is in a steak.” ―Gary L. Francione, philosopher and legal scholar, 2008

“Our strategy is twofold: a rational approach and an emotional approach. The former presents milk as a significant source of calcium and a first-choice weapon in the fight against osteoporosis, while the latter showcases the joyful reunion of consumers and milk.”―Nicole Dubé, marketing director, Québec Federation of Milk Producers, 2002

“Cow’s milk has become a point of controversy among doctors and nutritionists. There was a time when it was considered very desirable [to drink milk], but research has forced us to rethink this recommendation. . . . Dairy products contribute to a surprising number of health problems.”―Benjamin Spock, MD, pediatrician and author, 1998

“Élise! Drink your glass of milk before you leave the table.”―Édith Desaulniers, mother, 1979
