Dreadful article about the dangers of red meat

Post by breadsauce on Wed Nov 07, 2018 3:56 am

They seem to be out to get us! Confusing processed meat with red meat, and wrongly stating that cattle farming is bad for the environment

When in fact sustainable farming is beneficial

Not to mention that the proposed "solution" is essentially to raise the price to the point no one can afford to buy it. Then we can pave over the farms and build condos for the 60K lives "saved."

That is why I hate the idea of "sin taxes" on any type of food at all. I don't trust ANYONE besides myself to decide what foods are good or bad for me. In fact I believe most people don't really have a clue, especially in the government!

Me too. I hate being told by researchers - who may be vegan for all I know - telling me that red meat should be taxed. Or that rearing animals for meat is bad for the environment, without specifying if the cattle are living outdoors and eating grass, or intensive indoor farming (which I'm sure probably is bad for the environment). It may be poorly researched and poor journalism - but when it is widely reported it can still swing public opinion and persuade politicians that they need to intervene.

The devil is always in the details. I have actually read headlines that say the exact opposite of what the article was trying to convey. Now THAT'S sloppy journalism. But so is conflating processed meats with red meats, and sustainably raised with feedlot animals. Politics always takes the pulse of popular votes before coming to decisions.

Welcome to corporate propaganda.

In case anyone still hasn't figured it out, corporate funded "science" cooks up some intellectual backing, then corporate mass media spreads it, and profits are maximized. Catastrophic damage to human health is just "an externality."

The propaganda will continue into perpetuity.

We are ranchers and love beef. Our cows are happy out there grazing fields, just like grazing animals have done for countless centuries. I don't even bother reading articles like this one, and I didn't. I agree with Mudhenny, i am the only one that knows what is best for my body.
