Meat, Part 1
The hamburger bun is golden brown. The onion looks crisp and spicy. The pickles are undoubtedly crunchy and tangy. Of course, everyone loves their bacon, and the star of the meal is the patty, right?
Well, if by star of the meal you mean heart attack, then yes! Yes, it is.
The consumption of animal products is the leading cause of
- Kidney Stones
- Heart Disease
As for the last one, many people tell me, “Oh, but everything nowadays causes cancer!” and as much as I agree that it is much more prevalent, eating animal products is a really big cause and I’m not the only one who thinks so. You can see it here: https://wausaunews.wordpress.com/2014/01/18/big-hospital-finally-telling-the-truth-about-cancer-johns-hopkins/ Where John Hopkins scientists have discovered that cancer eats what you eat.
Obesity is a major problem in the United States. I can’t speak for other nations because I only live in one of them, but here, 34.9 percent of adults are obese, and it’s not for no reason. The dairy board has somehow convinced our government to tell people that they need to drink four glasses of milk a day. In reality 75 percent of people are lactose intolerant, meaning they cannot digest dairy milk. The ability to digest milk without becoming violently ill has been developed over thousands of years, like resistance to a poison.
For the 25 percent of you who can digest milk, let’s talk about why you shouldn’t.
- Milk is full of antibiotics – necessary because of the close quarters dairy cows are forced to live in.
- Milk does indeed have calcium, but our bones don’t absorb it! When we drink milk our body is made acidic, and the calcium from our bones is used to neutralize it. Drinking milk isn’t helping your little ones grow big and strong, no-siry-bob! In fact, people who drink milk have a higher incidence of bone fractures.
- Dairy Milk is specially made for intense growth of baby cows, just as human milk is made for the slower but still rapid growth of baby humans. When animals drink other animals milk, especially if they aren’t going through rapid growth, they are getting waaaayyyyy more fat and sugar than they need! And that becomes clogged veins and arteries that you don’t want.
- The hormones and antibiotics are especially bad for teenagers. It causes acne and in girls in leads to premature development and especially bad cramps. In older people, the hormones are linked to cancer of sexually related organs.
