Meat Is the New Tobacco


PCRM (The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine) posted this new brilliant ad, in case you haven’t seen it. I love the cleverness and design of this poster! 

Meat is the New TobaccoMeat is the New Tobacco

In case you can’t read it clearly, under MEAT it says:

  • Bladder Cancer

  • Breast Cancer

  • Espohageal Cancer

  • Gastrointestinal Cancer

  • Kidney Cancer

  • Leukemia

  • Lung Cancer

  • Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

  • Pancreatic Cancer

  • Prostate Cancer

Having read “The China Study” and gone through Dr. T. Colin Campbell’s eCornell course on Plant-based nutrition, I must include “Blindness” to the list as well! Yes, eating meat can cause you to go blind down the line! None of these happen overnight. Cancer growth takes between 5 – 40 years to develop! If you care about your health, the people around you, that you care and love, you will want to limit – if not completely cut out – meat from your diet! Why not start 2014 off right and go veg at least once or twice per week? What do you got to lose? Take charge of your health! Happy Saturday, everyone and thanks for reading!
