Eating a vegan, plant-based diet means that I don’t consume dairy products — or at least I do the best I can to avoid consuming dairy products. My reasons for avoiding consumption of dairy products are because of personal ethics and compassion for cows as well as the health concerns about dairy products.

From the health perspective, here are three articles that explain why we do not need to drink or consume animal-based milk or dairy. Check them out:

1. Mark Bitman, a mainstream journalist from the New York Times, wrote this article, Got Milk? You Don’t Need It, and his follow-up piece: More on Milk .

2.  Health Concerns about Dairy Products by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which is a non-profit that advocates for preventive medicine, especially good nutrition.
