Why Eat Animals If We Could Survive On Only Plants?

This short chapter is a bit misleading. It is really just a review of the arguments made in preceding chapters rather than giving the chapter title much of treatment. Monocrop agriculture is not the way forward. Meat and animal products should be at centre stage when it comes to healthy diets and sustainable agriculture. Meatless…

Why Did Meat Become Taboo?

Our authors make the case that for many vegans and vegetarians meat is vilified in order to demonstrate their own moral superiority over barbaric, knuckle-dragging meat eaters. If it was only about personal health choices, then the vegan mobs wouldn’t exist. It would be a case of live and let live. A fascinating aspect of…

Diabetes Code Follow Up

I said a couple of weeks ago that someone suggested I read Dr Fung’s The Diabetes Code if I wanted to beat the dawn phenomenon. Well I finished the book. It helped with the dawn effect and a lot more. It’s a gamechanger. I’ve been following his fasting programme for two weeks now, and I’ve…

Is Eating Animals Immoral?

I think readers can guess Rodgers and Wolf argue the answer is a emphatic no. How do they make their case? Oh, so many ways. Their approach is “death by a thousand cuts.” Death to anti-meat arguments that is. Let’s dig in. A lot of this chapter revolves round the idea of “least harm.” Human…

Don’t Cattle Drink Too Much Water?

Well, if you’ve been with me this far Dear Reader, what do you think? Propaganda coming out of the People’s Socialist Republic of New York tells school children that “it takes ten full bathtubs of water to produce a quarter-pound burger.” Lies, lies and more lies. Where does this water come from? Water treatment plants?…

Jason Fung – Diabetes Code

So I had my phone consult with my diabetes nurse last week. These were the numbers: HBa1C – 7.4% Total cholesterol – 7 Kidney Function – normal Blood pressure – 110/70 Pretty mediocre. I’ve worked hard trying to get my HBa1C down to a sub 5.8% but haven’t been able to crack it. I’m not…

Sacred Cow – The Movie

I only stumbled across this today when looking for a photo for my post. The site is worth a gander. More importantly, for those who don’t fancy reading the 270 page book, or my posts, you can watch the documentary on: Itunes Vudu Googleplay Amazon DirecTV Dish Network iNDEMAND Sacred Cow

Don’t Cattle Take up Too Much Land?

The myth busting has come thick and fast in the last few chapters. Chapter 11 is no different. The truth is no, cattle do not take up too much land. What a surprise. Our authors begin with the Meatless Mondays claim that livestock take up “75% of Earth’s Agricultural Land.” Given that mainstream Western culture…

Aren’t Cattle Inefficient with Feed?

The answer is yes…if you’re a propagandist for vegetables or a shill for big-Agriculture. The answer is no if you have functioning brain cells and live on planet Earth. I know, this is a big ask for “anti-meaters”. This is a short, punchy chapter that really debunks the idea that you have to put far…

Fighting the Green Revolution

Dr Mercola has an article out that ties in very nicely with the recent chapters of Sacred Cow that I’ve been reading. Vandana Shiva has been fighting against monocrop, GMO, chemical-laden agriculture for six decades. One of the tactics big-Agro uses is to patent GMO seeds in order to trap farmers into a cycle of…
