Advancing Min's Vegan Dunkin Donuts Agenda

I don't know if Matthew Yglesias' "Maybe People Are Drinking Less Milk Because It's Poisonous to Many of Us" hypothesis is true, but looking at the PDF he links to, you definitely see that the focus of the study was entirely generational and doesn't look at all at changing demographics, lactose intolerance, people choosing alternatives like soy, rice, or coconut milk for health or ethical reasons as factors. Now maybe the reason for the decline is due entirely to people giving their kids Tinker Tea, and that would be a bad thing. But the report doesn't show that, and the assumption is that this trend is really a bad thing for the country and not just for dairy farmers, which is why Yglesias (who is no vegan!) says "entire federal government seems to be sufficiently locked down by the dairy industry".
