Got the facts on Milk?

I'm so excited!  I just took my first step in being active in the food movement by pledging money to help get funding to a documentary about Milk!  The project, featured on KickStarter, needed $25K in order to get the movie distributed and due to public interest raised over $50K in one week!

So why the excitement?  Well, creator Shira Lane has spent the past five years making this film (which has already won numerous festival awards) that takes a comical approach to questioning the well advertised benefits of milk.  I myself have questioned the consumption of cow's milk for many years as originally humans did not have the tolerance to digest it. Ahem, entire cultures (Japan and China) are still lactose intolerant.

Funding of the project has closed, so you can't donate to get your own DVD, but look for this documentary to be released soon, hopefully on Netflix!  I'll keep you posted.
