Dead Animals

The Greatest Threat to Americans


Republican candidates have been out of touch with change, but they’re not the only ones that could improve their lifestyles. The presidential election did not return us to the 1950’s, but other aspects of our behavior remain primitive. The biggest threat to democracy is corporatism, but that is not the biggest threat to Americans. The biggest threat to Americans is not Iran, global warming, or the economy. Wake up and smell the coffee, it’s what we eat!

 


The American diet is killing us. The number of people getting cancer has increased from 1 in 33 in 1900 to 1 in 2.5 people today. The US is the country that is ranked #1 for obesity. We were 13% obese in 1962 and in 2010 the CDC reported that 35.7% of adults were found to be obese. Between 1.5 and 2.0 million Americans die every year of heart attacks, cancer, strokes, etc. The primary cause for a majority of diseases running rampant is the American diet.

 


There is nothing healthy about “meat”. You will most likely die from cancer or heart disease if you eat dead animals. Protein and iron are found in plenty of other foods; foods not full of animal fats. Twenty percent of women and two percent of men are anemic, but that does not make dead animals a healthy choice. Have lab work done when you can.  If you like seafood, you might want to stick with it since it is a source of iron, and the health benefits of the Omega 3s are outstanding.

 


Do you like to drink milk or eat other forms of cow lactations like cheese and ice cream? Cow lactations are good for turning calves into cows, so what could go wrong? If you consume cow lactations you will most likely die from cancer or heart disease. Furthermore, cow lactations do not prevent osteoporosis, they cause osteoporosis. For more about this, watch “Forks over Knives”. It is a free movie on the Internet at …. http://www.hulu.com/#!watch/279734

 


It does sound disgusting to eat dead animals, cow lactations, or chicken menstruation ejecta, but for most people eggs are a healthy choice. I often eat veggie omelets with no cheese for breakfast, or will have a couple of chicken menstruation ejecta salad sandwiches for lunch.

 


Stay away from breads, pizza dough, and pastas that are not whole grain. High levels of gluten will cause you to feel bloated; with up to eight meals stuck in your intestines. Whole plant foods should be in your intestines, because whole plant foods are full of nutrients. Whole plant foods are what will make you feel healthy. There is no need to put a limit on the amount of whole plant foods that you eat. Eating fiber draws fat out of your body, so the more you eat the skinnier you will get.

 


At the grocery store, look for whole plant foods that look yummy. Don’t go to the departments of dead animals, cow lactations and sticky stuff. Find things like nuts, grapefruit, whole grain cereals or breads, salmon, or sweet potatoes that look yummy. Try to make a smoothie, soup, or a stir-fry. These foods will make you feel better and give you energy.

 


Americans need to move “forward” by becoming physically and mentally healthy. To be an American that lives a long healthy life, please mostly eat organic whole plant foods, with no meat, no dairy and low gluten. Yes, that means no more pizza. Go for it, or at least please make sure that you have plenty of life insurance.

I like seafood and eggs for B12, but I also get B12 from fortified soy milk and cereals. Nutritional yeast, tempeh, miso, sea vegetables, and other plant foods are sometimes also reported to contain vitamin B12.

This is why I only eat live animals.

What a great and provocative essay! I think I fall into the middle ground of the debate. I was raised on meat and dairy, like most Americans who grew up in the 1960's and '70's. I tended to be a bit anemic, and NOTHING cured that like a weekly Rib-Eye steak. Then eleven years ago I was on a farm and got locked into a stall with a three-month-old calf, name of Beth. I've eaten almost no meat from mammals since then. Though I do warn my students that if they ever eat bacon in my classroom, and I smell it, I will leap on them like a jaguar and get that bacon, and eat it. I eat a lot of fish now, and poultry. I think the egg is a perfect thing, and hate to hear it referred to as above, whether or not you consume them. I do worry about the sufferings of chickens and turkeys, and so far have avoided being locked into a yard with one. And I can't swim, so I think I'm even less likely to be trapped in a salmon fishery, and risk conversion there. I also think cheese can be very good for you in moderate doses. But enough personal stuff. My point is that I think each body is unique, and needs to find out for itself what to eat, and to learn to control itself as to quality and quantity. Now back to the wine column... Also, I LOVED Inigo's comment.

I have to agree with MrMilford. Eat whatever diet you want. Just leave my food choices alone. I won't criticize your meal as long as you back away from judgement of mine.

Meatis no good- I get my protein from the organic peanut butter at Trader Joe's
