Skip to comments.Almonds Are Out. Dairy Is a Disaster. So What Milk Should We Drink?

A glass of dairy milk produces almost three times more greenhouse gas than any plant-based milk. But vegan options have drawbacks of their own.
For environmentally minded consumers, the news is hard to swallow: almond milk is not healthy for the planet and the popular milk substitute is especially hard on bees. Our recent investigation into the connection between Californias industrialized almond industry and a record 50bn commercial bee deaths created quite a buzz. The widely read story prompted one primary response from readers: What should we be drinking instead?
This is a thorny question, and food sustainability experts are reluctant to single out any one plant milk as best because all have pros and cons.
But were going to try.

Drink what you want, says Emery. If youre going with plant milk instead of animal milk, youve already addressed most of the environmental problems that your animal milk habit was causing.

I’ll have a glass of cow milk.
Nothing like a warm chocolate chip cookie or slice of chocolate cake or brownie accompanied by a nice tall glass of cold whole milk
Its not that cows milk is inherently bad. But its how theyre fed and then how over processed American milk in particular is.
All the other alternative milks are even MORE processed unless homemade.
Leftists should drink bleach.
Do vegans put ‘Oat milk’ on their oatmeal?
Dairy milk, real milk, is okay, especially if it’s fermented. Almond “milk”, soy “milk”, and the other fakers are no good. Don’t believe the advertising or the hype. People have been eating milk and milk products for Thousands Of Years! Think About That.
If I don’t drink at least 2 cups of milk a day I feel weird.
I always advocate cows milk whenever I get a chance.
I hate envirpsychos and health psychos.
I’m downing cheesecake and a cup of coffee with dairy half and half as I type.
Without real milk, how can I dunk and enjoy my Oreos?
Oh man, stop it!!! :-)
You don't seem to be getting it. It is the cow flatulence followed by the infant/toddler flatulence when consumed... naturally. !:^0
Whoever wrote this poo should eat insect juice. Cockroaches preferably.
Almond milk and regular are fine, screw the vegans.
Nuke the bees!
I’ll have a glass of cow milk, too.
And I hope the cow farts in AOC’s bug-eyed face!
Well, milk is designed to turn an 80 pound calf into a 400 pound cow in about a year. So I think I’d skip the milk.
Just throwing this in there: the Guardian is owned in part by Pierre Omidyar who is of Iranian background. One of Iran’s big exports is almonds. Therefore California almond growers like Diamond are competitors, and there is an incentive to hire PR firms to smear California growers ...
As it happens back in the days of the Shah, Diamond had a lot of influence on US foreign policy.
