Ditto what Oceandog says.
Once you read The China Study you'll never consider ingesting dairy products again.
There are many good articles by the plant based doctors that explain how dairy does exactly the opposite of what The Dairy Council wants you to think it does. Cows don't drink milk past being weaned from their mother and they have strong bones. Can you think of ANY animal that drinks milk past infancy? Can you think of any animal, not influenced by humans, that drinks the milk of another species? And what animal besides humans have bone loss?
It's my understanding that vitamin D3 is NOT vegan. I don't know the exact source. D2 is suppose to be vegan. Again, I don't know the source. I would just google "vitamin d3 vs d2" - probably get thousands of hits.
