I refer to the article (FS/14/7) with the headline “Livestock sector to change with time”.
The natural juices of fruits and vegetables detoxify our body. This action cannot be obtained from meat-based diets due to the presence of toxic substances such as antibiotics, chemical contaminations, hormones, etc.
Since proper bowel movement is crucial for good health to allow the unwanted and harmful matter to move out quickly and efficiently, meat will only deter this action as it contains no fibre whatsoever.
Farmed animals contain up to 50 per cent saturated fats which is the cause of several diseases including heart disease, obesity, high cholestrol, low blood pressure, stroke, kidney failure, only to name a few.
Osteoporosis (brittle bones), which is due to calcium loss from bones is further due to the sulphur content in meat. 80 per cent of food poisoning is due to infected meat (faeces, bacteria), as afterall it is decomposing flesh.
Interesting to note that Dr T Colin Campbell, one of the world’s foremost epidemiological scientists, in his best-selling book “The China Study” states that “no chemical carcinogen is nearly so important in causing human cancer as animal protein”. The presence of veterinarians will not solve any of these problems either.
