Most if not all of those facts are definitely true. Funny memes to go along with it makes it worth to read.

These numbers are ridiculous and destroys credibility. 75% of the world is lactose intolerant and consumes no dairy at all? That's just an absolute lie and anyone with a single ounce of common sense would know this.

Reference the comments below; what if they don\'t realise, as I did not, that I had a mild intolerance to dairy. Three months after switching from vegetarian to vegan, I keep getting comments about how lovely my skin is. No more blemishes. I didn\'t know I was intolerant to dairy. So don\'t be so quick to judge, stew and think about things a little more.
