Meat Industry

Don't Eat Meat Until You've Seen This!

Watch this and you can then join Lisa & I not eating animals by going on a plant based diet. It's much, much healthier that way as well since our bodies are better designed to digest and absorb plants than it is meat or other animal foods. This video is EXTREMELY graphic so just be aware and DO NOT have any children present.

I must inform you that you will want to turn it off, but keep watching. Trust me it is absolutely horrific and it will infuriate you that there are people out there who can do what you will see them do, but just watch. It's only 12 minutes.

Watch this to the end no matter what, be educated, and you will feel MUCH better about making that choice.


Yes there definitely is a difference from purchasing meat from and contributing to the practices of the commercial meat industry, but again our bodies are still better designed to digest and absorb plant based foods.

If you choose to eat meat I recommend only get pasture raised (grassfed), wild caught, organic (but just because it's organic does not mean it's safe, humane and healthy).

The mistreatment and unhealthy raising practices of conventional meat plants need to be stopped. ASAP... and WE have a say in that. Boycott.

Watch the below video to see the humane and almost family-like raising practices that you should ensure goes into your food.

Again, I personally mostly eat plant based, but what the video "Farm To Fridge - The Truth Behind Meat Production" does not address are farms such as Joel Salatin's "Polyface Farm" which is 100% humane, loving, and raising their animals the way nature intended.

This is how it is supposed to be. Choose your food and your food sources very, very wisely.

Did You Know: Eating Deli Processed Meats Is Bad; It causes cancer...

Consuming processed meats increases the risk of pancreatic cancer, says new research conducted at the University of Hawaii that followed nearly 200,000 men and women for seven years. According to lead study author Ute Nothlings, people who consumed the most processed meats (hot dogs and sausage) showed a 67% increased risk of pancreatic cancer over those who consumed little or no meat products.

But researchers failed to accurately identify the culprit responsible for this increased risk of pancreatic cancer, says one author. The true cause of the heightened cancer risk is the widespread use of a carcinogenic precursor ingredient known as sodium nitrite by food processing companies, says nutritionist Mike Adams, author of the just-published Grocery Warning manual at:

Nearly all processed meats are made with sodium nitrite: breakfast sausage, hot dogs, jerkies, bacon,lunchmeat, and even meats in canned soup products. Yet this ingredient is a precursor to highly carcinogenic nitrosamines -- potent cancer-causing chemicals that accelerate the formation and growth of cancer cells throughout the body. When consumers eat sodium nitrite in popular meat products, nitrosamines are formed in the body where they promote the growth of various cancers, including colorectal cancer and pancreatic cancer, says Adams.

"Sodium nitrite is a dangerous, cancer-causing ingredient that has no place in the human food supply," he explains. The USDA actually tried to ban sodium nitrite in the 1970's, but was preempted by the meat processing industry, which relies on the ingredient as a color fixer to make foods look more visually appealing. "The meat industry uses sodium nitrite to sell more meat products at the expense of public health," says Adams. "And this new research clearly demonstrates the link between the consumption of processed meats and cancer."

Pancreatic cancer isn't the only negative side effect of consuming processed meats such as hot dogs. Leukemia also skyrockets by 700% following the consumption of hot dogs. (Preston-Martin, S. et al. "N-nitroso compounds and childhood brain tumors: A case-control study." Cancer Res. 1982; 42:5240-5.) Other links between processed meats and disease are covered in detail in the Grocery Warning manual.

Adams wrote Grocery Warning to warn consumers about the toxic, disease-causing ingredients found in everyday foods and groceries. "There are certain ingredients found in common grocery products that directly promote cancer, diabetes, heart disease, depression, Alzheimer's disease, osteoporosis and even behavioral disorders," Adams explains. His Grocery Warning manual covers them all, teaching readers how to prevent and even help reverse chronic diseases by avoiding the foods and food ingredients that cause disease.

According to Adams, consumers can help reduce the cancer-causing effects of sodium nitrite by consuming protective antioxidants before meals, such as vitamin C and vitamin E. But no vitamin offers 100% protection. The only safe strategy is to avoid sodium nitrite completely.

Adams especially warns expectant mothers to avoid consuming sodium nitrite due to the greatly heightened risk of brain tumors in infants. Parents are also warned to avoid feeding their children products that contain sodium nitrite, including all popular hot dogs, bacon, jerkies, breakfast sausages and pizzas made with pepperoni or other processed meats. "Sodium nitrite is especially dangerous to fetuses, infants and children," says Adams.

Sadly, nearly all school lunch programs currently serve schoolchildren meat products containing sodium nitrite. Hospital cafeterias also serve this cancer-causing ingredient to patients. Sodium nitrite is found in literally thousands of different menu items at fast food restaurants and dining establishments. "The use of this ingredient is widespread," says Adams, and it's part of the reason we're seeing skyrocketing rates of cancer in every society that consumes large quantities of processed meats."

Some companies are now offering nitrite-free and nitrate-free meat products, which are far healthier alternatives, but those products are difficult to find and are typically available only at health food stores or natural grocers. Consumers can look for "Nitrite-free" or "Nitrate-free" labels when shopping for meat products. They can also purchase fresh meats, which are almost never prepared with sodium nitrite.

The new research on processed meats points to a chemical toxin as the cause of the increased cancer risk. A heightened cancer risk of 67% is "gigantic," warns Adams. "This is clearly not due to macronutrient differences. This is the kind of risk increase you only see with ingredient toxicity. Something in these processed meats is poisoning people, and the evidence points straight to sodium nitrite."

As always I recommend staying as close to nature as possible. Everything you put in your mouth leaves a trail and/or has a trail from where it originated. The shorter the trail (or better yet no trail between nature and you) the healthier. The closer you stay to nature the less processed your food will be. The more processed it is, or the less it appears like the way nature intended it, the less healthy it becomes. Be very, very leary of foods with health claims and foods which are infused with "healthy ingredients".

I recommend that as much control over your healthy and diet that you have be proactive and do EVERYTHING that you CAN do in order to protect yourself personally from what is out there. It is my opinion, and I will speak very frank here since this is my blog, if someone is educated on what to do in order to be healthy, what to eat, when to eat it, how to be active, etc. and that person then decides to not act then that is just foolish.
