Beer is healthier than Milk says PETA

1According to PETA(People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), Beer is healthier than Milk for promoting good health. It’s also better than than milk for reducing or maintaining weight.

Recently a billboard sponsored by PETA was spotted at Hilldale Mall, which is just a mile away from the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus, thus targeting college students and urging them to consume more beer instead of milk.

“It’s our responsibility to teach the new generation about the dairy industry. PETA’s position is, we’re in the role of showing this new generation what’s going on behind the scenes in the dairy industry, how that milk comes to get into a glass and all the cruelty that’s associated with it,” Daniel Carron, senior outreach coordinator at PETA’s headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia, said, according to

PETA’s campaign “Got Beer?”, started in the year 2000, was attacked by various groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). The campaign was pulled down twice, once in 2000 and then in 2002 because of the backlash by MADD.

A donation of $500 was made by PETA to MADD out of goodwill after the “Got Beer?” campaign was stripped off in 2000. The campaign was halted out of respect for MADD, PETA explained.

The PETA has come out and openly said, “It’s official: beer is better for you than milk,” it also claims that beer aids longevity and strengthens bones, while milk causes obesity, diabetes and cancer.
