Top Health Reasons Why
Educated People
Don't Eat Meat

  • CANCER , European studies say American meat causes cancer at rates higher than smoking, and some U.S. studies have confirmed this. EU banned American meat for this reason. ---"A third of cancer deaths each year are related to food," says CNN article "Sausages v. cigarettes" January 28, 2001.
  • HEART DISEASE The American male has 50% chance of getting heart disease.. many celebrities are on their 2nd or 3rd heart attack already. A vegetarian man has practically ZERO risk of heart disease, and a MUCH lower risk of stroke.
  • MAD COW DISEASE , this is caused by the grotesque practices of profit driven factory farms, which ground up diseased dead animals and feed it back to the living animals, for efficiency. Why is this terrifying the Europeans now? There is no cure, once infected, you lose your sight, then your brain, then die. American meat is not exempt.
  • ANTIBIOTICS These animals are pumped with antibiotics, without remorse. Human meateaters consume these antibiotics, and bacterias in their body form super resistant strains with no cure. The death toll from these super bacterias is making an appearance in America.
  • HORMONES are pumped in these animals to make them more profitable. Hormones which are in turn consumed by the meat eater, causing both bodily changes, and partly responsible for the high cancer rate of meateaters.
  • PESTICIDES used on the crops of animal feed (as well as ALL your non-organic food) are mass consumed by these animals before slaughter. The pesticides build up in their animal fat, and then build up in the meateaters human fat, causing more cancer in your body
  • E. COLI outbreaks are common the U.S., and grocery store meat recalls are often seen in the news. This isn't the most pleasant disease to get, along with the pain might come kidney failure. Each year in the U.S., there are 10,000 to 20,000 new cases of infection.

    National Public Radio did a special on the dangers of meat in the U.S. and the abuses of the meat industry. You can listen on the web:

    The U.S. Meat Industry requires 155,000,000 barrels of oil a year, just to raise cattle for beef.
