“Bernie, I’m your biggest supporter, and I’m here to ask you to stop pumping up the dairy industry and to stop pumping up animal agriculture.”

A tweet with video from the event’s livestream tagged activist Priya Sawhney and animal-rights group Direct Action Everywhere.

Two topless protesters onstage appeared to have “LET DAIRY DIE” written on their chests. They also appeared to pour milk on themselves.

Sawhney said in a statement included in the release:

“I love Bernie, but we must hold abusive industries accountable, not shield and subsidize them.

“Animal farming is an industry which gives welfare payments to millionaires.

“People are fed up. Like the Sanders campaign itself, animal rights is a burgeoning mass movement.”

Even Sanders’ wife Jane found it impossible to take the anti-milk protestors seriously. The only person who seemed annoyed at the antics was Bernie, who had the microphone ripped out of his hands by one of the anti-dairy interlopers. | AP photo

6 Reasons to Get More Dairy

WebMD – Here are six reasons you should include low-fat dairy foods in your diet:

Calcium and Protein

Some dairy items have impressive levels of two things many of us need more of: calcium and protein. I’m sorry to say that ice cream falls a bit short on these two nutrients, but low-fat milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, and reduced-fat cheese pack a protein and calcium punch in every serving.

Just a cup of lite nonfat yogurt, for example, gives you a third of your daily recommended calcium intake, along with 17% of your estimated daily protein intake.

Blood Pressure

Researchers in Spain who studied more than 5,000 adults found that those who reported consuming the most low-fat dairy (mostly skim and reduced-fat milk) were 54% less likely to develop high blood pressure over a two-year period than those with the lowest intakes of low-fat dairy.

Calcium has been suspected of having an effect on blood pressure in the past. But the Spanish researchers found that only calcium from low-fat dairy products was related to a lower blood-pressure risk. The researchers suggested that this could have something to do with the proteins found in low-fat dairy (caseins and whey), which may have actions similar to those of blood pressure-lowering drugs.

Weight

In a recent review article, a researcher from the University of Alabama at Birmingham noted that although an analysis of overall calcium consumption has not linked calcium to greater weight loss, there is increasing evidence that calcium from dairy products may play a role in body-weight regulation.
