poison of dairy industry

Hi everyone! Not sure if this is appropriate to ask, but I’ve got to try. So, a friend’s father passed away this morning due to severe osteoporosis (leading to other complications). He drank 3 glasses of milk/day and doctors were scratching their head as to why he had brittle bones (I mean, honestly! Sigh.) My question is, for years and years we’ve been told these lies by the dairy and meat industry about the ‘benefits’ of what we now know is poison. Can they be sued? Is there ever going to be a movement where legal action can finally take place to shut them up and start placing warning labels, like the tobacco industry? Would love to hear your thoughts, with thanks! Sending you all lots of love from (chilly) Toronto, Canada!

Dairy irrefutably is connected with many chronic diseases, environmental destruction and animal abuse. I agree that industry should be held legally accountable. The legal bias, subsidies and protection afforded the dairy industry by our governments is unconscionable. I believe that the tobacco model is the best course for change, but the US Congress has passed “Common Sense” legislation (circa 2009) that protects the food industry in general, with specific aim at the dairy and meat industries, from lawsuits if it is found that these products cause death. The meat and dairy industries took note of the legal claims against tobacco and lobbied to protect their own industries against such claims when the reality became publicly known. This places a major hurdle against the legal angle. Aside from public uproar and demand for legislative change, I believe the only present course of legal action would be a Constitutional challenge under the 14th Amendment (equal protection) would require that dangerous substances be treated equally by the US government and regulated accordingly. I believe dairy and meat products (particularly processed meat) are equally or more dangerous that tobacco. Subsidies could be ended and dairy/ meat could be regulated in a manner similar to tobacco. This will take an enormous amount of education and political effort, but placing these dangerous substances on the same footing would be our best legal hope outside legislation.
