Just finished watching the debate with Neal Barnard, somebody Bauer, Cris Masterjohn and Joel Salatin and have one question that I would have asked Neal Barnard in his opening statement.
He stated that he was raised on his farm where his father and grandfather ate meat, potatoes and corn and/or peas daily. He then stated that his father and/or grandfather died at age 65 of heart disease or cancer, whatever it's not important. He blamed the meat. Now I would have asked "oh, he ate an all meat diet? That's why you're blaming the meat?" Well his father could have been eating corn oil, crisco, drinking beer/whiskey, eating tons of bread/potatoes, corn muffins, whatever. But it's the meat that killed him at age 65. Ok, so where is the logic in this?
That's what I keep hearing over and over again. Meat kills. So are all these people who are dropping like flies eating meat exclusively? Or are they eating tons of other bad stuff with the meat? And why is the meat taking the fall for all their ills?
And yet, people look at Neal Barnard like he's a saint and gobble up every word he utters. Give me a fricken break.
Ok, rant over.
