A Vegan’s Take on Following the Money
Be careful of the recommendations by the American Heart Association. Recently, a friend in the hospital with heart disease, cancer, and high cholesterol had what the medical center called a heart-healthy breakfast. The meal consisted of scrambled eggs, bacon, and toast. Bacon and eggs contain unhealthy cholesterol for the body.
One of the largest slaughterhouses in America is Cargill. Cargill contributes a HUGE amount to the American Heart Association. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified processed meat as a carcinogen. The World Health Organization has stated that processed meat causes cancer. Nevertheless, it will be years before people begin to understand the dangers. Just evaluate how long it has taken for people to see the risks in smoking.
The American Cancer Society is beginning to see the risks in meat, but they are not warning patients about the carcinogens in dairy milk. Nutritionists are complying with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards, which is lobbied heavily by the dairy and meat industry. Then consumers are following the FDA guidelines like sheep to the slaughter. It is up to each of us to do our research and to quit trusting these large corporations.
