Milk – Gandhi Wished He Could’ve Skipped It

Mohandas Gandhi was a strict vegetarian, vowing “not to live upon fellow animals.” He explained that “the basis of my vegetarianism is not physical but moral. If any said that I should die if I did not take beef tea or mutton, even under medical advice, I would prefer death.” He regretted that he could not forsake the consumption of all animal products. “ I would give up milk if I could, but I cannot,“ he said “I have made that experiment times without number. I could not, after a serious illness, regain my strength unless I went back to milk. That has been the tragedy of my life.”
