      Loved this video and am inspired to drink more oat milk! In a similar way, could you all explore which oil is the best for the environment? Like for cooking and cosmetics, which is best: coconut, argan, jojoba, avocado oil, etc? I’d be interested to know which multipurpose oil is best for the planet.

    Oat milk best milk!! By the way, coconut milk is a different thing from coconut water (: The milk is made from its flesh, whereas the water you drink directly from the coconut!

    How about we *gently* ask grown-ups to stop consuming hundreds of litters of milk every year. That looks like the best option :) ps: Black coffee is king

    Pretty soon, they'll have you eating and drinking NOTHING. Like an article I recently read, "Starvation By Food". Genetically modified foods, lacking in taste and nutrition. Where is the actual nutritional info, the actual BENEFIT TO HUMANS in drinking the FAKE MILK, the bone supporting info on all the FAKE milk, THAT STILL USE INDISTRIAL PROCESSES to put them on store shelves. And WHO owns these companies that produce the products used to make the FAKE milk, and who owns the factories that produce it, and the companies who package the FAKE milk, and who has stock in the businesses, farms, etc.

    With land use for dairy, it uses up more space but it isn’t a monoculture and promotes biodiversity more than the same space of crops would

    Y’all are tripping if you think you’ll get titties from soy. Phytoestrogens are not the same as mammalian estrogen, which is in dairy milk. So if you’re still drinking dairy watch out for estrogen problems

    Instead of telling consumers to reduce their footprint, why not put pressure on the corporations to operate with net zero emissions? They’re the ones with the resources to do so, nearly universally.

  • MysteryMan9415

    Cool, I will stick with milk from cows or a woman's tits 🙂 Idgaf about the environmental impact! Our species will eventually go extinct, because everything in the universe has a beginning, middle and an end. You can't protect everyone and everything. 😈


    They are just indirectly saying to stop drinking milk.

    What makes me sad is that I can't afford alternatives most of the time 😭 Oh! Oat... reminds me of Psycho-Pass and the dystopic path humanity took to make all food oat-based and then a man attempted to infect the crops with a lethal disease and hhhh. Think that mangaka is very well read. Too well read. >.>

    That's cool and all but none of these are actually milk and certainly don't have the same nutrients Milk: an opaque white fluid rich in fat and protein, secreted by female mammals for the nourishment of their young.

    • Thomah Perin

      ​@Liam R Its only perfectly healthy in theory. In reality for a child to be healthy on a vegan diet they need to constantly take supplements and eat much more than normal kids their age. The link is just one of many documented cases of a vegan diet killing children.

    • Liam R
      Liam R

      @Thomah Perin Soy milk: 100 grams = 3.8 g of protein The largest meta-analysis's in the scientific literature and all of the major dietary organisations have stated in no uncertain terms that vegan and vegetarian diets are perfectly healthy at all ages. Not that it's relevant, since we're only talking about milk alternatives, not diets.

    • Thomah Perin
      Thomah Perin

      @Liam R There is nothing wrong with saturated fats in healthy quantities. Also just switching to these alternatives is in most cases fine for kids. However there are documented cases of kids becoming stunted due to a vegetarian/ vegan diet. This is why I think the video should specify that these alternatives don't provide the same nutrients as dairy milk, most notably proteins and fats. dairy milk: 100 grams = 3.4 g of protein almond milk: 100 grams - 1 g of protein

    • Liam R
      Liam R

      @Thomah Perin You're wrong. The fats in milk are almost entirely saturated fats. Those are not healthy. Almond milk is full of monounsaturated fats, the healthiest kind. Also, when you say "nurture young", you're right, but by "young" it's babies, not kids. Milk is designed for babies, in this case, baby calfs.

    • Thomah Perin
      Thomah Perin

      @Liam R Milk is not designed for cereal... it was evolved to nurture young. Today many kids get valuable nutrients through dairy milk. By switching to these alternatives they will lose out on these nutrients. For example dairy milk is rich in healthy fats while almond milk is literally water and almonds.

    You cant drink milk out of a coconut, if you drank it out of a coconut that was Coconut Water.

  • Keallei

    3:38 you didn’t drink milk out of a coconut I think. The liquid that comes out of a coconut is sometimes called “coconut water”. The Milk is ground coconut flesh mixed with water and squeezed. The stuff that comes out is coconut cream. Mix it with water and you have coconut milk. The dry stuff is then made into coconut flour. 4:54 Filberts are marketed as hazelnuts.

    Hi guys, lovely and helpful video, did you think,also, to include which company make the milk and how they invest and where the invest. I believe we all need to considere not the way they make the milk also who does, and how those companies are or not taking care about, our only planet so far, the Earth. Thank yo.

    Are we supposed to ignore that you didn't include any stats for coconut milk? It'll be interesting to find out the water requirements and other impacts it has when compared to other alternatives. Additionally, you kind of glazed over the impact Almond Milk has on the bee population, considering that the major kill offs of these bees results from a combination of unfriendly pesticides and highly transmissible diseases between the bees, not just global warming. Added to that, major losses of these honey bees also have a greater impact of cross pollination of other crops when these bees aren't on loan to Almond Farmers... the net impact these alternatives have on other parts of the environment aren't always a beneficial trade off.
