During my morning commute and the more boring parts of the workday, I had a dozen different responses "written" here. I thought most of them were quite funny, but they were also sarcastic .. so .. I'll be a good girl and refrain.
Instead, I'll politely ask:
I know of studies that supposedly link saturated fats and/or cholesterol to heart disease .. and I can hook you up with links that will show how biased and inaccurate those studies were...
but I'm not aware of any studies linking meat to cancer or strokes. What kind of meat? red meats? all meats? (Not all "meats" are high in saturated fat, ya know). Who were the control group, vegetarians? How long did the study last? How many years did they follow both groups? How many people were in the groups?
Wake up and smell the fairtrade coffee .. the FDA, AMA, HMOs, and other medical establishment and health care groups are not looking out for your best interests any more than the other alphabet soup agencies like the CIA, FBI, DHS, etc. are. They "educate" the public and publish studies to further their own agendas, which in general are:
1) Make a profit. A big profit.
2) Have lots of power and control so they can make even bigger profits.
Your own friendly local physician may actually be your friend and trying to help you, but he's at the mercy of what he's been (incorrectly) taught and what the administrators and oversight agencies force him to do (and not do).
I've said many times that the conventional (allopathic) health care/medical industry is the single biggest (and most harmful) conspiracy in the US today.. but somehow it is the one that seems to get the least attention, especially considering its size, scope, and consequences for public health.
Think about this for a minute. The declining health of America's children and the increase in dis-eases like early onset diabetes and obesity - and even things like high blood pressure, heart disease, and strokes - among children is quickly becoming a national crisis. Is this because kids eat too many steaks, ribs, pork chops, eggs, bacon, etc.? No, it's because of breakfast cereals, toaster pastries, snack cakes, soda pop, sugared "juices", candy, chips, pizza, etc. Refined carbohydrates and sugars and fake foods! Use your super genius IQ and think about it...
