Red Meat Causes Cancer?

I saw on the TV this morning that ‘they’, whoever ‘they’ are, have now said that red meat can cause cancer. Well, this is not actually news. It’s been known for sometime. If you haven’t seen it watch the video of ‘Forks Over Knives’ (forksoverknives.com). It details research done showing the effects of an animal based diet and the effects of a plant-based diet. It’s quite eye-opening. The video is from 2011. However, in the 1970’s China began research on its own population to see what the correlation was between diet and cancer. The research was published in 1981.

The statistics show that countries who have the largest animal based diet also have the largest number of deaths due to coronary disease or cancer, while countries on a large plant-based diet have a lower number of deaths due to these medical reasons.

Researchers have also found that switching to a plant-based diet can reverse the effects of many conditions, including diabetes, arthritis, obesity, cancer, and many others. Now I’m not telling anyone to give up any medication they are on, but it’s been found that a plant-based diet makes people feel healthier and they feel that they have more energy.

In my mind the question is: ‘Why is this only now being said in the media, when it’s been known for sometime?’ The answer is very simple. The meat and dairy industry is a multi-billion pound industry. In the UK the only time we will get to hear the truth of this is when it begins costing more money in the NHS to treat these problems, than the meat and dairy industry is bringing in. After all, money is more important to people in power then the health of the workforce. If one worker dies there is always another to fill the place.

Breakfast At Work

I was at work last Saturday. I don’t mind working Saturday – I get a day off during the week in lieu. One of the things I look forward to on a Saturday is my breakfast. We always order either from the local café or from McDonald’s. Last Saturday it was McDonald’s.

I don’t call myself vegetarian but I eat very little meat. I usually order an egg McMuffin for breakfast from McDonald’s, which is exactly what I did on Saturday.

One of my Muslim colleagues placed the order and delivered my breakfast to me. Telling me that they had put meat on it. In fact there was a label saying ‘no sausage’. When I looked I found a cheeseburger!

I was quite offended by this. More so by the fact that one of my Muslim colleagues had taken charge of getting breakfast. I remember an incident, a few years back, where a manager had bought sandwiches for people and had some left over. She asked a Muslim man if he wanted a sandwich, which he did. However, it was ham. Formal complaints were laid against the manager, even though she was being nice offering the spare sandwiches out that she had paid for.

Why is it that certain people expect respect but don’t want to give it back to others? Why is it that when my colleague saw that it was wrong, why didn’t she say something and ask them to put it right? I ended up paying for something I wasn’t going to eat. I gave it to another colleague.

I found out the same day that another colleague had photos of her child torn up. The photos were on her metal box, which a Muslim colleague placed under the desk and used as a foot rest, tearing up the photos by doing so.

And they wonder why people turn against them.
