Happy cow faces on milk products or the traditional way of milking a single cow by hand, are misguiding us from facts. Companies are investing a lot in their marketing that has been misleading their consumers for a while. Especially in the meat industry.
Due to the mass industry of meat and milk, and other different products found in the supermarkets, marketing departments have ripped off the bond between the food origins and us – the consumers.
When speaking about pollution on our planet, the first things that come to our mind are the automotive industry, coal production, factories, and transportation.In recent years, people started arguing that a huge contribution to global pollution has the meat production. Especially the red meat production – meaning the beef and sheep industry.
Also, the dairy industry is connected to the beef industry by providing a direct product from the cows – milk, which leads to other products that have wide placement in the supermarkets – such as cheese, yogurt, spreads, etc.
In late 2015, the World Health Organisation released a statement suggesting that red meat was now classed as a carcinogen. They would then go even further and state that eating processed red meat “probably causes cancer”. This announcement was concerning for many people, and I think it answers the central question of this article.
However, I want to help you understand why exactly red meat increases your chances of getting cancer and examine their cause-and-effect relationship. Furthermore, I will provide a few alternatives to red meat to decrease your risk of developing cancer!
A human can be healthy without killing animals for food.
