Philosophy / what-ifs

What will happen to all the cows if everyone stops consuming dairy?

As demand for dairy drops, we’ll breed and kill fewer cows.

What about human problems?

Fortunately, in almost every case, especially in relatively affluent countries, you don’t need to consume animal products in order to help humans. In fact, since plant-based diets tend to be more efficient, environmentally cleaner, and healthier than meat- and dairy-based diets, you’ll probably help more humans by choosing and advocating an animal-free diet.

But it should be pointed out that animals have a strong will to live and a capacity for suffering that seems to be at least as great as that of humans; therefore, we have innate moral obligations to animals.
