Four guests debate about the value of dairy, the potential effects on global poverty, the environment and our health.

In many European countries and the US, alternative plant-based milks are growing in popularity, and cow’s milk sales are declining. Is this just a blip in our millenia-old love affair with dairy, or a steady drip towards a cow’s milk-free future?

Opposing viewpoints on dairy versus alternatives are discussed in this BBC interview.
