We Have Been Lied To About the Effects of Animal Consumption on our Health
Much like the tobacco industry, the meat, fish, egg and dairy industry have a lot of money invested in the success of their products. Before 1912 lung cancer was very rare. What changed? The marketing and sales of the cigarette industry sky rocketed! People started smoking like chimneys and they were being told it was good for them. Brilliant marketing. By the 1950’s it had finally come out that cigarettes were the direct link to lung cancer, yet the tobacco industry was still lobbying congress, funding fake research to swing their way, and paying doctors to advertise how great their products were. They did this for almost 50 more years covering the damage their product was doing to humans. 90 years later they were finally forced to put a label on their package indicating their products cause cancer. This is all from the help of activists and whistle blowers who rose up and fought for truth after discovering the corruption going on. The same thing is happening in so many other industries around the world, including animal agriculture. All of the laws, the food charts, research, education, and marketing that animal products are good for humans, are all very corrupt, and funded by the industry itself. Thats right. The exact same as the cigarette industry. But guess what? It's coming out! People are waking up and sharing the information. This year the CDC (Center for Disease Control) finally published on their website that Processed Meat is now categorized as a Class 1 Carcinogen. Which means (it causes cancer). Guess what else is a Class 1 Carcinogen? Tobacco! Hopefully it doesn’t take 100 more years for this to become public knowledge. Humanity cannot wait that long.
