Dr Michael Klaper - Advocate for a plant-based diet

Last April, we recorded the fantastic talk given by Dr Michael Klaper at Melbourne's Astor Theatre, an event hosted by Animal Liberation Victoria. Dr Klaper is an acclaimed doctor, dedicated environmentalist, and passionate educator. He has been a champion of the vegan diet since the early 1980s, recognising the devastating impacts that animal agriculture has on human and planetary health and, of course, on animals. Dr Klaper had a brief but memorable appearance in the documentary Cowspiracy where he uttered the now oft-quoted line “The purpose of cow’s milk is to turn a 65-pound calf into a 700-pound cow as rapidly as possible. Cow’s milk is baby calf growth fluid.”  We'll share the first part of this warm and wonderful presentation.

This is the first part of the presentation, as broadcast on the radio.  The second part, which was not broadcast (due to the presentation length), can be found in the Talks tab of this website.  It's entitled Dr Michael Klaper - Part 2.
