    Many, many years ago we learned how the tobacco industry lied about the dangers of smoking. Some people have stopped smoking - some have not: many have died. The tobacco companies have taken their poison abroad.

    And now more meat is being shipped elsewhere too, although some countries won't risk Mad Cow disease and have banned its import. Read up on this disease, learn how it lies dormant for many years in animals.

    Mounting evidence links meat consumption with stroke, cancer, diabetes, gout, osteoporosis and many other infections and inflammatory diseases. YOU truly are what you eat.

    One day this hellish, inhumane treatment and slaughter of animals will be understood as the major reason for disease. Follow the money for there are many who profit from this shameful industry and billions are spent to make you believe it's healthy.

    Ignorance is bliss and old habits are hard to break. It starts with compassion (for some of us), health concerns and an open mind to LEARN.
