Why Isn't Anyone Speaking Up

We Are!
  • WHO declared all processed meat (bacon, hot dogs, sausage and some deli meat) as a class I carcinogen – the same class as cigaratte smoking. This means that processed meat has been proven to directly cause cancer
  • WHO also declared red meat (lamb, pork and beef) as a probable cause of cancer
  • the number one killer in industrial countries is heart disease – heart disease is directly caused by diets high in animal products
  • eating one egg per day leads to a 2 fold increase in prostate cancer in men. Eggs contain a compoud choline which is responsible for the spread of prostate cancer
  • 70% of the calories in eggs come from fat, mainly saturated fat and cholesterol. Humans should not be consuming any added cholesterol as our bodies make the neccesary amount and any extra leads to heart disease
  • eating 1.5 eggs per week increases risk of colon cancer by 5 times
  • consumption of eggs increases risk of diabetes by 68% compared to those with a very low or no consumption (less than 11 eggs per year)
  • dairy products increase the level of IGF-1, a potent stimulus for cancer cell growth. High levels of IGF-1 are linked to prostate and breast cancer
  • eating poultry is also associated with cancer due to the high levels of heterocyclic amines, carcinogens that build up when meat is cooked at a high temperature, which are present more in poultry than in other meats
  • studies show that milk stimulates the growth of the cancer cells which leads to an average increase in cancer growth rate of more than 30%. In contrast, almond milk suppresses the growth of cells by 30%
  • feed given to industrially-raised cattle, hogs, and poultry is specially formulated to maximize production at the lowest possible cost. These feeds may contain antibiotics, arsenical drugs, rendered animal carcasses, and other ingredients that may lead to the introduction of harmful contaminants into our food supply
  • disease-causing microorganisms originating in factory farm operations, including antibiotic-resistant pathogens, can enter our food supply at various points. When animal waste contaminates water sources, for example, contaminants can be transferred to plant surfaces when crops are irrigated. The scale and speed of meat processing plants also present frequent opportunities for widespread contamination.
  • scientists have shown that there is a link between exposure to the toxic chemicals found in animal waste and the development of neurological problems, including brain damage and depression
  • animal waste emits ammonia, hydrogen sulfite, methane, volatile organic compounds, and particulate matter from fecal dust. These irritants enter the lungs of anyone who is nearby and can cause serious respiratory illnesses.
  • studies found that as many as 70 percent of U.S. factory farm workers suffer from acute bronchitis, and 25 percent battle chronic bronchitis. Furthermore, 46 percent of children who live on pig factory farms with more than 500 pigs suffer from asthma.
  • factory farms are also breeding grounds for antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which are known as “supergerms.” On farms across America, the antibiotics that we depend on to treat human illnesses are now used to promote growth in animals and to keep them alive in horrific living conditions that would otherwise kill them. Countless new strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria have developed as a result of this abusive practice.
