Here is my secret to knowing if something is good for us…
When governments tax a certain food and declare a “war” on it, I KNOW it is good for us.
And now, there is a growing, world-wide war on meat:
Slapping taxes on processed meat and red meat could prevent 222,000 deaths and save $41 billion in global health costs every year, according to a new study.
The taxation system would save an estimated 53,000 lives in the U.S., according to the study.
This is BRILLIANT propaganda. Goebbels would be proud. Because this hit piece is mixing processed meat (which is probably bad for us) with red meat (which I personally KNOW is good for us). Look at Dr. Shawn Baker’s MeatHeals.com for the proof and inspiration.
Of course, when we invest less than 5 seconds looking into who funded the study, we see there is a HUGE conflict of interest. Because The Wellcome Trust paid for this study. And The Wellcome Trust is a front organization for Big Pharma…
This was followed by a second share sale in 1992. Then, in 1995, the Wellcome Trust sold most of the remaining interest in Wellcome plc to Glaxo plc. This created Glaxo Wellcome plc, which merged with SmithKlineBeecham in 2000 to create GlaxoSmithKline.
FACT: Meat is LOADED with everything our body needs to not only survive, but thrive in our modern world. We could live on meat alone and live perfectly well – no plants needed…
And one of the many benefits of a mostly-meat-eating diet is most people get off their “meds”. This has to be one of the many reasons why The Wellcome Trust funded this dubious “study” (which has absolutely no scientific backing by the way).
Wanna see the tens of billions of reasons GlaxoSmithKline fears people waking up to the benefit of eating meat? Just look at the tens of billions of dollars they make selling all their plant-based “cures” and heart-drug failures:
Darapladib’s inability to reduce the overall risk of heart attacks and strokes in the first of two big Phase III studies is disappointing, but not a huge surprise. Many analysts already had low expectations for the project.
(Maybe everyone should look at our water supply for ways to reduce heart attacks.)
By the way: This meat tax is not a new concept. It has been proposed in California, Germany, Austria, Norway and Sweden.
Will there be a global tax on buying meat one day? Probably. But will this tax stop me from making meat the foundation of my dietary intake? Hell no.
