Wow. So saw my mother today, she was saying I am sounding (I used to have a lot of sinus problems) and looking better since giving up dairy, and I said that a side effect of going vegan has been better health. I said that my periods were better and I have been less ill in general. She then said 'Hmm I guess after breastmilk, it's unnatural to have milk' and that dairy is basically unnatural. So I then calmly went on about the abusiveness of the dairy industry, separating the calf and mother, and how even organic milk is cruel. This time, I wasn't shouted at, she was quiet. Hmmm. Maybe some progress?
