Mystery Meat: Solved

When you look at the top ten leading causes of death according to the World Health Organization, heart disease remains #1 in nearly every economic bracket around the world. Of those heart disease deaths, roughly 45% had type 2 diabetes. If we look at the true scientific root causes of both issues, the answer is meat. Processed meat is even worse, exponentially increasing the risk of cancer according to another WHO report citing 800 studies. High cholesterol is a prime cause of heart disease, and the number one source of cholesterol in America is chicken. There isn't even one study showing that eating eggs and meat in moderation can turn your heart disease around, much less get any better.

> When it comes to being healthy, the evidence against meat is staggering. If you eat meat, your chances of getting cancer are 1 in 2 as a man; and 1 in 3 as a woman. If you eat meat, your chances of gaining weight are about 2 in 3 - and your chances of getting diabetes are about 1 in 3. The World Health Organization report has classified bacon and sausage as carcinogenic to humans.[2] Within minutes of eating dead meat bacteria toxins, the body gets a burst of inflammation, stiffening or paralyzing the arteries - blood vessel Dementia is actually caused by the clogging up of arteries from a steady stream of fat and cholesterol. The food industry is attacking our children especially: most kids already have fatty streaks on their arteries by the age of ten in the US, ensuring that the "2/3 of adults are overweight or obese" statistic expands even further. Diabetes is widely misunderstood to be caused by sugar or high-carb diets [1][2], in fact carbohydrate consumption is inversely related to diabetes[2] - The real culprit yet again is meat. In fact, just one serving of processed meat per day increases your risk of diabetes by 51%.[2] Most people consuming meat are also consuming dairy products, which compound the dangers even more as outlined in this article.

> It turns out eggs aren't doing us any good either. In fact, eating 1 egg per day is just as bad as smoking 5 cigarettes per day for life expectancy.[2][3] While clever marketing campaigns like "incredible edible egg" are designed to make eggs seem appealing and nutritious, the USDA has admitted that eggs cannot legally be labeled: nutritious, healthy, healthful, good for you, low fat, part of a balanced diet, low calorie, or safe.[2]

> 70% of deaths and morbidity are largely lifestyle related & preventable. In addition, only 5-10% of cancer is genetic, meaning most people are prematurely dying every day as the result of mistreating their bodies over time. Considering the overwhelming science on what meat, eggs, and dairy are doing to our body, the source of the poison is clear. Testing shows that 88% of pork chops, 90% of ground beef, and 95% of chicken breasts sampled were contaminated with fecal bacteria - and organic meat will by no means help you avoid those contaminants.[2]

> How is this allowed to happen? As usual, the answer is found when you follow the money. Knowing the extreme dangers meat poses to our heart, why does the American Heart Association recommend beef and pork under their recipes for healthy eating? Likewise, why does the American Diabetes Association feature recipes for red & processed meats among other foods associated with causing diabetes? WHY does the American Cancer Society encourage eating processed turkey and canned meats!? Perhaps the answer lies in the fact that the most prominent distributors in the meat industry fund the American Heart Association.[1][2][3][4][5] While most sponsors are hidden from plain view with ownership-shell brands like "Conogra" (who owns Chef Boyardee, Kid Cuisine, Manwich, etc), the truth is easy to find with some basic googling. The American Diabetes Association and American Cancer Society are both massively funded by many of these same meat/dairy industries as well, a blatant conflict of interest resulting in no true healthy recommendations from these sources. To top it off, all three of those organizations (AHA, ADA, ACS) additionally accept millions of dollars from the very pharmaceutical companies profiting off of "fixing" the health issues these foods are causing. It's a lucratively vicious cycle where billions line the pockets of billionaires at the expense of poisoning the population.

> Well, what IS healthy? The China Study examines the relationship between the consumption of animal products (including dairy) and chronic illnesses such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and bowel cancer. The authors conclude that people who eat a whole-food, plant-based diet—avoiding all animal products, including beef, pork, poultry, fish, eggs, cheese, and milk, and reducing their intake of processed foods and refined carbohydrates—will escape, reduce, or reverse the development of numerous diseases. They write that "eating foods that contain any cholesterol above 0 mg is unhealthy".

 The truth is, there is nothing in an animal-based diet that you can't get in a healthier form somewhere else. One of the largest disinformation campaigns ever lead the masses to believe vegetarians have protein deficiencies - when plants are actually loaded with protein.[1][2] In fact, plants are the one and only true biological source of protein.[2][3] The only reason a burger has any protein in the first place is simply because of the cow's lifelong diet of plants. Studies continue to show that overall nutrition and vitamin intake go up on a plant-based diet vs. a meat-based diet. Furthermore, many of these leading ailments are reversible and even curable through proper eating - a plant-based diet is more than twice as powerful at controlling and/or reversing diabetes than meat and dairy.[1][2][3] When people adopt a fully plant-based diet, their cholesterol levels plummet within days [2] and their blood pressure comes down.[2] As a result, you can actually stop and reverse heart disease with a plant-based diet as well.[2][3] Finally, over 99% of people studied were able to avoid a cardiac event by going plant-based. Even the best ever remission rates for Multiple Sclerosis and Chron's disease were achieved by simply switching to a plant-based diet.
