Doctor’s Orders…

“The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined.  If beef is your idea of “real food for real people” you’d better live real close to a real good hospital.”

Neal Barnard, M.D.

  1. To most Americans this seems unbelievable, almost propaganda-like. The same would be correct if you replaced “the beef industry” with “the dairy industry”. We have long been programmed to believe that milk and meat are not only good for us, but will aid the average persons health. Vegetarianism is equal to “wasting away.” I hope that these common beliefs about food will soon be shed in the correct light they deserve, namely that eating meat is actually harmful when you take into account the beef/chicken industry use of sterioids and antibiotics, and that consuming dairy has no benefit whatsoever that cannot be met by vegetables.
