    I want to copy all your text but it gives me a weird popup that if I need something to ask for it.
    Can I have all of this text? Just disabled javascript and copied all the text yay!
    NOT.

  • Ziggi

    Yes – the worst are carcinogenic organic potatoes. They are eve worse than raw meat.

    • stevesmartarse

      What’s your evidence?

      • http://rozabrozek.weebly.com Person

        Pesticides.

        • stevesmartarse

          They dont use pesticides on ORGANIC potatoes! The clue is in the word ORGANIC.

          • Wendy Pickett Niesen

            Actually, organic produce does have pesticide use. It is ORGANIC pesticide. Research it.

          • John Beavin

            If it’s organic pesticide is it harmful to people or other animals? Where do you research this?

    • Maurice Spiller

      Eat Plants, Not Animals.

      • Ceph

        Eat whatever you like, responsibly. I eat plants and animals, but that’s really none of your business.

        • Byron Maiden

          Well, sure, it is only important if you are the animal having to endure torture and death to please our eating habits.

    • Byron Maiden

      Well, yeah, like all the pesticide laden crops the enslavers feed their animals, which by the way also ends up on your plate!

  • Julian Saul

    Since the Fukushima nuclear disaster resulted in millions of gallons of highly radioactive waste water being dumped into the Pacific, every day, for years, fish, especially large fish, and especially large Pacific dwelling fish which also contain mercury and other carcinogenic heavy metals from pre-existing oceanic pollution, should obviously be categorized as group 1.

    • Emil Albert

      It is not highly radioactive, not before and especially after it is dilluted in the ocean.
      There are these things called backround radiation and natural radioactivity. Radioactive material is everywhere in nature in tiny amounts, so it does not really make a difference.

    • Frank Tillman

      you need to educate yourself about Fukishima, IF what you are saying is true then ALL of us should be dead

  • Rob

    Fake News! You know what else is in animals? Poop! They take that out too. Does that bother you?

    • JustAnotherHuman

      Please tell you don’t actually believe what you’re saying. You’re making a joke, right? Meat (and dairy) from factory farms is *always* contaminated with fecal matter. You cannot remove someone’s guts cleanly, certainly not at the speed of 56 billion animals per year.. and if you were being killed you would empty your bowels & bladder anyway. So blood, guts, fecal matter & urine are sloshing around together in one glorious blob. It’s not just a cruel process — it’s also just downright disgusting. Sounds delicious!

      • Patrick Wiley

        If you eat organic plant matter it’s contaminated with fecal matter too.

        • Tiago Rondão

          That is why you must wash it very well before cooking it. But yeah, I guess the food you’ve been eating must be filled with shit

  • Patrick Wiley

    This article is based on the utterly nonsensical premise that eating meat from an animal that had cancer can somehow cause cancer in humans. Cancer is not contagious it’s a cellular degenerative disease and you certainly can’t get it cross-species.

    • Maurice Spiller

      Don’t Eat Animals. Period.

      • Joey-BagaDonuts

          • Mario Martinez

            Less than by the slaughterhouses?

          • Russell Spear

            Vegetables are also “life”. You kill thousands of micro-organisms with every step you take and every breath you take. So, in reality, you are “drawing lines in the sand”. That does not compute. Would you die instead of taking “antibiotics” (anti-life)? I can see those tiny bacteria picketing, signs saying “let me live!” 🙂

          • davidoffon1

            Maybe some people eat meat because it continues the primordial streak we ,apparently ,still have, but they is to squeamish to draw blood. I saw it being done when I was 12 and no meat was eaten for a week. It is ‘alf hooken nightmare for a child to witness.

        • https://genesisclubbers.com Elizabeth Jamieson

          And who says vegans have to eat unhealthily. Processed food and sugary drinks are not what wholefood vegans eat.

          • Joey-BagaDonuts

            Elizabeth, so you just chose to ignore the word I used, vegetarian? I did not say “whole food vegan” as you are trying to reform the argument, badly.

          • Yuriy

            Elizabeth, STFU with your word twisting.

        • Tracey Dunn Williamson

          I dont drink that crap, and I can tell you from my own experience the difference in my body and function, when I went from meat and dairy to plant based. People make these arguments simply to justify their own wants.

          • Joey-BagaDonuts

            No, you, like EVERYONE ELSE who changes their diet, can only report that changing your diet to something you thought about and considered made you feel better.

            Much of it is in getting rid of things you were eating, NOT in what you changed to.

            It’s like when a person “Gets religion”. Typically, they don’t pay attention to the bad things they were doing, only that they found Jesus.

          • Sean Carbone

            49 years eating meat and dairy – not junk food. (no sodas, sweets, etc) Ended up getting prostate cancer. Got off meat, dairy, dropped 30 lbs. cholesterol went WAY down as did my blood pressure. Lost the cravings. Healthy again. And hey, if I’m not part of the cause of animal suffering that’s a bonus. It’s working for me.

        Please tell me.

        • Beathe Haaland

          google “vegetarian, low fiber diet” 🙂 There are options. However, if you read up on how to put your body back into balance, you will be able to slowly implement more fiber to your diet. I don’t know why you can’t eat fiber though, so it’s hard to reply with the best answer for you. Good luck anyways! 🙂

          • Nigel

            I can’t eat soya, or fibre, and I have to limit my dairy intake too. Which leaves me with an incredibly bland vegetarian diet. Mostly fruit and nuts. Meat is easier and a lot cheaper than specialised vegetarian meals.

            However if I had a live-in vegetarian chef, then I would agree that going vegetarian is certainly an option. I’d probably prefer it.

    • informer

      and you have science to back up such a dumb idea, of course you wont get sick eating diseased meats ,,,, what a dreamer!!!!!

      • Janet Mcleod

        They,re not saying that you,ll get cancer from them. I would have thought that the majority of people would have been repulsed at the thought of eating that. And they,re say its really bad for your health. I suppose there are those that will eat anything though.

        • Joey-BagaDonuts

          “And they,re say”

          Yeah, I’m going to take advice from a dullard who can’t even proofread his comments.

          • Janet Mcleod

            Joey-BagaDonuts Haha and who,s gonna take you seriously with a name like that? Grow up and focus on whats really important and the matter in hand. This isnt an exam, its a post about shitty farmers who imprison and butcher innocent living beings for profit.

          • Nicholas

            Who’s going to take you seriously when your picture looks like a chicken breast thats been crushed in a burlap sack.

          • Janet Mcleod

            Wow what a useful and intelligent comment. And at least I have a picture. And actually most people here dont even understand the article, you being one of them.

        • Nicholas

          If some people will eat anything, I suppose at least that means even you get ate out sometimes, which is surprising to most people involved.

      • SSSS

        Sure I could, I could get food poisoning. Oh cancer sick you mean, well, do you have a science background to back yours pal?? Who really knows and how anyone could react. Putting aside all the can we get it, how about the thought of eating body parts of any animal that has cancer lumps and bumps..F! gross! There is an article floating around the web that certain dog foods that have been recalled have contained the euthanasia drug pentobarbital. How did that happen you ask?? well meat rendering plants take vet waste and guess where all that “good protein” goes? Yep that’s right, right back in the dog food. Now not all dog kibble is infected, just the lowest of low dog food sold at Walmarts and grocery stores. Kibble’n bits. Ceaser..Ole’Roy, so tempting when you see a 50 lb bag for 14.99, people can’t help themselves.. Feel so sorry for those dogs..

      • Beathe Haaland

        Did you know that everything can be measured in frequencies? Even cancer has it’s own frequency. Yes it’s science. Google it! The frequency of pig cancer might be different from human cancer frequency, but the point is that cancer in general vibrates in a lower frequency than a healthy state and the more low frequencies you introduce your body to, the more likely to “catch” any disease. I’ts been proven that plants and even human cells react better to higher vibrating frequencies. Look it up and learn if you want to 🙂 It’s quite interesting.

      • Patrick Wiley

        Yes I do, the basic science of how cancer manifests. It’s a cellular degeneration. Of course this is argument from ignorance anyway. The burden of proof is on the person making the claim to show evidence such transmission of cancer is possible (which it’s not).

        • Sean Carbone

          Plus tumors are extra tasty, I guess.

    • Brian O’Neill

      its not contagious in a biological sense like a virus but the more toxins you put in your body the more likely you are to get cancer… that’s a fact and I would expect cancer tumours to be very toxin… but knock yourself out… eat away if you want!

      • Joey-BagaDonuts

        Thank god you’re a doctor.

      • Nicholas

        Considering “Toxins” is a buzzword used by all sorts of phonies nowadays anyway, your body keeps toxins in check quite easily on it’s own using the Liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin, being a meat eater does not make you any more likely to get cancer than, say, receiving a routine jaw x-ray at the dentist, literally background radiation is everywhere, hell, even bananas are radioactive, if you spend your whole life worrying about getting cancer, not only will you not live much of one, but you’ll feel a total knob if you do end up with cancer.

        Don’t play doctor if you don’t know anything about what you’re talking about.

        • David Allan Morris

          you mean like you just did? lol smh

          • Nicholas

            I don’t claim to be a doctor, I just stated known facts: Bananas are radioactive, background radiation exists, the body processes toxins

      • Nigel

        Technically true, but cancer has been around for a long time (basically since the dawn of time) and all animals eat it on a regular basis. Cancer is just a collection of cells that have grown out of control due to a fault in their DNA.

        Plants also get cancer, just as often as any other organism. In fact, as the cancerous growths in vegetables and fruits are generally ignored, you’ve probably eaten a lot more of them than a meat-eater has. Food for thought there.

      • Patrick Wiley

        Ok when you throw around the word “toxin” it’s an immediate red flag that you have no idea what you’re talking about. Technically everything is a toxin. Any given element or molecule can kill you in the right quantities. Calling something a toxin is meaningless. Heck even the term “Carcinogen” is less dire then people often imply.

    • Byron Maiden

      That is not the point. The point is you are being served a corpse of a sentient being who, besides not wanting to undergo the utterly cruel treatment it was subjected to, also carries all diseases and unhealthy growths observable in many cadavers of these and other animals, including us, which just out of good taste and healthy reasoning, should not be consumed. Besides the point that consuming such animal “products” is absurdly unnecessary in this time and age.

      • Shaun Howarth

        who says it had been cruely treated we need to stick to facts,.,. thus not relying on hearsay

        • Penny Bourque

          All animals raised for human consumption on a mass scale are treated inhumanly, that is a fact, they can’t get away from that. You can buy meat that has been grass fed and lives on a pasture but then you’re paying the big bucks. I am a meat eater and I know that the meat I eat is being slaughtered by the thousands each and every day! You are what you eat! and if the meat is pumped with antibiotics and growth hormones, you are left with meat that is not as fresh, healthy, and tasty as we think.

          • Deena Patrick

            Thank you are a intelligent person, now we just need to educate the rest who think differently.

          • Yuriy

            Kill all others…

          • twizzle

            Problem with most of the arguments for those trying to protect the animals lives, is that were the animals not being bred for consumption, they wouldn’t exist AT ALL. The species in question would also more likely no longer exist if they weren’t also being bred for human consumption, as they wouldn’t serve any purpose and take up too much valuable space, (space needed to grow fruit/veg, which we couldn’t allow animals to eat the veg or have grass growing, as we’d have more vegetarian mouths to feed)

          • Karina1

            Millions of sentient beings are bred to live short, miserable and painful lives so people cat eat them. They do not live normal lives they just exist in pain and misery. I think you are forgetting that we also need to get the human population down, we are still breeding like rabbits exhausting the oceans and land and yes I am vegan,

          • Tracey Dunn Williamson

            Your argument makes no sense. I find it interesting you dont mention the millions of wildlife slaughtered for this industry, the animals going extinct because of the over population of humans , the massive resources meat animals use for very little return. You concern is not the animals not being here, its to argue that you want meat.

          • Millie Kennedy Gruber

            Even if it is grass fed. lives in a pasture it is still butchered and eaten. Is paying big bucks a help to the animal?

          • Rudy Zachary

            most of the animals we consume would not exist in the wild anymore, humans would have hunted them to extinction. To say its “inhumane” is a reach in my eyes, yes they need to have better conditions but the fact still stands that these animals are no different than a tomato or carrot raised for consumption. As far as the antibiotics not in as full swing as implied (it is used) but the hormones involved do not affect humans.

    • Mario Martinez

      Some types of cancer comes from virus. All the toxins, antibiotics and low quality control food given to the animals goes straight to your system. Enjoy your bacon darling

      • Joey-BagaDonuts

        I will, thanks.

    • Governmental Deception

      or you are that stupid, aren’t you intelligent enough to ask a butcher not that they would tell you anyway, I asked one if they wash the meat with ammonia, news flash ” THEY USE TO” but no longer do. Point is they admitted it fact u can bet they still do it. Gawd you leftist are so incredible dumbed down clueless ………….

      • Patrick Wiley

        Leftists? What? The vegan movement is one of the most far-left movements in existence.

        Your argument is highly specious, based purely on sensationalism, scare tactics and conjecture and displays a complete lack of critical reasoning applied to the issue, hence your need for childish insults.

    • Tiago Rondão

      Your comment is based on the utterly nonsensical premise that everybody can talk about everything without having a fucking clue about it.
      FYI, cancer is a consequence of an uncontroled increase of cellular signaling triggered by some specific growth factors, proteins, DNA promoters and hormones, such as the Tumor Growth Factor (TGF), the growth hormone and so on, which end up by promoting an uncontrolled rate of cell division and proliferation. Some of these molecular compounds are already in the organisms of almost all animals (including us) but in a controlled and low concentration, because they are needed for some biological processes, some others only appear once cancer has already developed. Once you have an escalation on the concentration of this compounds, that is when you will probably get cancer. This compounds and the biological pathways activated by them are conserved among all mammals and almost all animals (human genome and pig / cow geneme have 98% similarity), so no matter if you ingest them from pig, cow or chicken meet, they will affect you exactly in the same way.
      So, first thing you should take in mind is that the processed foods used to feed the cattle contains high amounts of growth hormone, TGF and other growth factors, which is why big producers can make their cattle increase in weight 3x faster than the the ones who feed the animals only with food from biological sources. So by eating that, you are already eating carcinogens. SECOND, if an animal has cancer it means that this compounds are present in concentrations enough to promote cancer and the products of cancer cells (which normally are not present in the organism) are already in the tissues. So, if you eat the tissues you will eat everything your cells need to become cancer cells, and believe in me, if you eat a lot of that you will get cancer.
      To finish, I must tell you that you kinda used the wrong words to define cancer, it is not a cellular degenerative process, is actually the other way around. Cancer cells get overpowered generative properties similar to the ones found in stem cells, that is why they proliferate everywhere in an uncontrolled way. And yes, cancer is not contagious until you eat a fucking organism with cancer or filled with cancer-promoter compounds, and yes, you can get these compounds cross-species.
      By the way, I am a neuroscientist, I love to eat meat and I am a smoker as well, so the point is you just can’t go fully retard just because you love something that science has proven to be BAD AS FUCK!!!
      I recommend you a very simple exercise: try to talk about the things you know for a fact and shut the fuck up about everything else when it comes to influence other peoples mind about health. At least do some research before you open your mouth, you would found everything I said in 1 hour if you google it, since it is known for decades, probably before you were born.

    • Melanie Audet

      That’s not at all what they’re saying. They’re saying eating highly processed meats causes class 1 cancer. Maybe read the article again…

    • Tracey Dunn Williamson

      If you can get a meat producer to talk you will learn they grind up diseased animals with the healthy, that more and more tumors are seen all the time. But even what you call healthy meat is not. Not only wrong for our bodies it it damages the colon and the way some are cooked it causes cancer,. Not to mention the drugs and wormers given. Animal protein is unhealthy and most people consume way too much which over works the kidneys. Horrific damage to water ways, massive wildlife slaughter, ocean dead zones and horrific cruelty, all for something making us unhealthy. But no one wants the truth, they want their pound of dead flesh.

    • Nancy G

      The point is that the food and drugs the animal was exposed to, within it’s relatively short(ened) lifespan (the things that precipitated its cancer) are now going to be consumed by the human purchasing its body ie the meat. Get it?

      • Patrick Wiley

        I get the claim, but you present no evidence to back it up nor does the article. It’s typical sensationalism. The fact is lots of foods contain known or probable carcinogens.

        Aflatoxins for example, a known carcinogen can infect peanuts, tree nuts and grains.

        https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2782753/

        Acetaldehyde can be found in apples and orange juice

        https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3124883/

        Cancerous tumors themselves are meaningless, examples of elevated levels of known carcinogens in the meat itself might matter, but when an article like this is using a flagrant scare tactic I’d hardly bother going to it for information on such matters.

    i rather die. at least ill die happy and not be miserable because i have to watch what i eat all the time. thats just kinda depressing. everyone dies eventually changing your eating wont let you live longer if its time for you to go then its time for you to go simple as that. plus my health is partially fucked anyways since birth so im deff on the chopping block im not afraid to die anymore i welcome it

    • Mario Martinez

      You say that you will die happy. have you ever seen someone dying of cancer? months of chemo?
      don’t make me laugh
      You may not be able to improve your health after so many years eating meat but you can give a change to generations to come to eat healthier from the start and save millions and millions of animals

  • informer

    go eat all the cancer infected meat you like,,,, ha after all in the end you are what you eat, I am sure you will enjoy the flavorsome variety, you may live long enough to tell the story

    • Shaun Howarth

      who says its infected and we are not

    • Joey-BagaDonuts

      Most animals killed are too young to have tumors.

  • Al Elias

    eat nothing at all, then, sooner or later you will die and guess what? No animals, plants, nuts or bull-shit will have been harmed in the making of your life. You will just die of starvation instead…Oh! and perhaps your demise might be hastened by the fact that all you really wanted was a big, fat, juicy bacon sandwich with lashings of HP Sauce (That is Houses of Parliament Sauce for those of you across the pond). But be careful, there are hundreds of ingredients in HP Sauce, some of which are known to cause cancer…yawn!

  • Charles Cooper

    After reading this post a question was presented – “What are your thoughts?” this caused me to think and respond. The main thought this post instilled in me was _____Why do some people believe that they are so right about something (Vegan Diet here) and others with different views are just idiots. The Meat eaters reply in like manner about how stupid the Vegs are. Why does our current society keep trying to FORCE their choices on everybody else? This demeanor has become so ingrained in our once great nation. We have so many so called “movements” with fake names and, it seams like, all with the same purpose ; that is to keep us divided so that we are more vulnerable to a takeover. Vegans – just don’t eat meat and stop the fake “poor little animal” thing. Carnivores – Eat meat and stop criticizing others.

      You are forces your choices on the animals that you eat. They dont want to be imprisoned or slaughtered to end up on your plate. You are taking away their life for a f**king sandwich you ignorant moron. And vegans will never be quiet until every animals is free and the holocaust ends.

        Comparing animals being used for food to a genuine tragedy that happened towards millions of actual, sentient beings, is actually the most fucking retarded thing I’ve ever seen from a vegan, Kudos, you crazy bitch.

    An experienced butcher admits when he sees cancer growths in pork he just cuts it and sells it to customers,.,.,. sooooo laughable,.,.,. firstly an experienced butcher may come across an abnormality but one thing for sure he will not know if its cancer or any other type of disease he will know its not normal,.,.,. these posts are normally hounded by the vegetarians or vegans,.,.,. well as a M.Sc in Food Quality Management i can assure you that you are not exempt from cancer because you choose not to eat meat,.,.,. im not going into it in depth but you know what happens to fruit and veg to prevent it being destroyed by pests,.,. you know how the preservatives are widely used and even the simple apple is sprayed,.,.,. now move on we are all breathing the fumes of cars that wasnt here 100 yrs ago,.,. along with aviation fuels,.,., gas fires,.,. mobile fones,.,., tv and radio,.,., microwaves,.,.,. then Chernoble,.,. then put a giga counter next to the fish and fishery products you eat,.,.,. then the power cable lines,.,., then all those chemicals you clean your homes and cars with including kitchens,.,.,. then theres all that polysterene and treated packaging,., cling films i could write a book called Vegans are under attack

    Most people find it hard to replace the meat on their plate with another lower calorie alternative because it has become a strong habit. Plant-based or semi-vegetarian diets are not appealing because people are not educated on the cooking methods and variety of ingredients which can make the dishes more tasty.

    Then again, even with the scientific studies proving that smoking and processed meats cause cancer, people are still doing it.

    It has been on the news just recently that they found phenol barbitol in certain brands of dog foods. Can this happen? yes it can, this is one of the biggest complaints that certain organizations have for fighting against horse slaughtering the amount of drugs that a horse is given across it’s life time and once euthanized with a 60 cc syringe of a drug, and then shipped off to other countries. Hot dogs contains every part of the pig all ground up, as for the human DNA present that maybe caused by a accident in the rendering facility. Depending on what part of the world, or in this country your cultural life style determines a lot on your health. Americans eat a lot of pork and beef, certain meats are carcinogenic, in Asian countries they eat less meat so they do not come down with the same types of cancer as we do. Now the question is this all mammals have mitochondria in every cell of there bodies. The mitochondria is the energy source of the cell, so even cows, pigs, horses, and humans etc.. all have them. When a animal is euthanized the drug goes straight to the mitochondria and stops all these little electrons in the cell to stop and die. The drug remains in the cells, inside the animal, so if a animal has a disease like cancer those cells are also located in the mitochondria. So what makes a cell such as this go bad? Your environment some of the hazardous things you eat example, foods, certain medications, infections, the mitochondria start to malfunction and mutate. Not all people will become ill by this, because again it is your cultural inherited life style that has a impact on those cells. So what if you eat infectious meat that contains cancer. Well first of all not every animal contains cancer, however there are some do have infections and cancer. So could you possible become ill over time? That all depends again on your life style with the consumption with meat. So you wonder then if I consume meat that had cancer or infected will I get it? That is a good question depends on how well the food was cooked, because it takes a bit for the HCL acid ( hydro chloric acid) in your stomach to start working on the food you ingested. So one doesn’t really know for sure except for the mitochondria whether they become dysfunctional and mutates and die.

      I want to correct myself on the drug used to euthanize dogs, I said phenol barbital that was used I did not read the article I heard about it over radio. The correct drug was pentobarbital. But it really doesn’t matter what drug was actually used, my point is the cells in the body absorb the drug and once the animal dies it doesn’t disappear. It will remain in the tissue and if you or your pet consume it you could possibly have side effects over a accumulative period of time, examples from seizures, to other disorders and yes cancer too. As for the mitochondria most people don’t know much about them unless you have some kind of biological background this would not make any sense to you. I tried to keep it simple so that you would get the concept of how they function.

    Why am I not surprised by this level of stupid.

    Cancer is not infectious people……

    • Deena Patrick

      I love when I can bring out the stupidity in people and you are entitle to your opinion. Educate yourself.

  • Donna Nuku

    hey people, heated debate, all sides are correct of course, its a personal choice. But, humans made the need and want for farmed and slaughtered animals for food. Its accepted in our law, the same as alcohol and tobacco. Not consumed by everyone, but its legal no matter how much we do or dont like it. D xox

    Forget cancer…we have bigger issues to contend with.
    1. Around 1/5th of the green house gas emissions are from livestock industry.
    2. producing a kg of beef takes about 1800 gallons of water, a kg of soya/corn takes around 100-200 gallons. With water scarcity as one of our biggest future problems, why should an industry that serves less than 1/6th of the planet get to use precious water at a rate that is about 18 times higher than it takes to produce other food?
    3. Antibiotic resistance . with more than half the antibiotics produced in U.S being used in the poultry industry – not for curing but for making chickens gain weight rapidly- no wonder millions of people die every year with antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria.
    4. Use of arable land for cattle feed – can have much more efficient food production by directly cultivating food crops.

    to feed just one omnivorous human requires more than three acres of land while all it takes to produce food for a vegan is one-sixth of an acre. And with more than seven billion people sharing the earth’s 7.68 billion acres of arable land, ….
    “in the United States, livestock production is responsible for 55 percent of erosion, 37 percent of all applied pesticides and 50 percent of antibiotics consumed, while the animals themselves directly consume 95 percent of our oat production and 80 percent of our corn,

    “Livestock species contribute directly and indirectly to deforestation, water pollution, air pollution, greenhouse gases, global warming, desertification, erosion and human obesity, and virtually anywhere you go in the world, the damage done by ruminants, pigs and poultry, and those who grow feed crops for them, is visible on the land. Dry and scrubby Greece, once a nation of woodlands, has gone to the goats. In Brazil, forests are falling before the advance of soybean fields, cultivated largely as beef fodder. In New Zealand, the banks of wild streams are frequently found trampled and muddied by grazers.”

      That’s my point it’s feast or famine, but what ever man chooses it could have a impact on the cells in our bodies and in the animals also. But if you think about out everything you mention, why are humans living longer today then a hundred years ago?

      • Ashwin Kanholi

        If you see the causes of death in the last century (https://visual.ons.gov.uk/causes-of-death-over-100-years/) you can see that
        “There was a dramatic decline in the number of people dying from infectious diseases in the 20th century. Poliomyelitis (polio), diptheria, tetanus, whooping cough, measles, mumps and rubella were all virtually wiped out during the second half of the 20th century…” of course thanks to the advances in medical science.
        However, the irony is that the leading causes of death by 2015, the most were related to cancer, heart conditions or external causes. From infectious diseases to lifestyle diseases.

        However, what i was trying to say (other than the part about antibiotics) wasn’t about our health, but of our planet. We are living on a finite planet-one with a burgeoning human population fast running out of resources.

    how in the world was there human dna in both meat and veggie hot dogs I have a hard time trusting this article !!!

    Study more on sugars and cancers..

    animals that raised by billion and slaughtered by billion a year will not really exists if they are not for human consumption

    What absolute nonsense. B.T.W. the “tumor” in the image is nothing more than a glad. But I am sure you know this but used it to make your foolish point about cancerous meat. There is absolutely NO scientific evidence whatsoever that proves that meat leads to cancer. To say meat leads to cancer is like saying that the majority of people who die of cancer ate bread and that therefore bread is to blame. Since the majority of rational people have meat in their diet, the majority of cancer patients will have eaten meat.

    I gave up eating dead animal corpses in 2010 (8 years now).
    But, what makes me laugh about the above article is, how a MERE butcher would be able to see cancer in a piece of meat. Even doctors have to do lab tests to detect cancer in humans or animals. Think about it. LOL

    There is no morally coherent difference between consuming pig and consuming any other nonhuman person. All animals want to live without being exploited and killed. Whenever we use animals, or pay people to use animals, we violate their inherent right not to be regarded as a commodity/slave/property for other humans. Most of us agree that it’s wrong to unnecessarily harm animals yet we go day in and day out paying people to harm animals for us. We kill over 60 billion land animals each year, and over 1 trillion sea animals each year and the best justification we have is that they taste good. How is that fair? It isn’t. The solution is to go vegan. We can live happy and healthy lives without exploiting and harming animals. If we know that sentient beings are behind harmed whenever we go to use their bodies or their personal secretions then we are morally obligated to go vegan. Going vegan is easy, it simply requires that you regard animals as nonhuman persons rather than seeing them as commodities or as ‘things’. When we go vegan we are doing the morally right thing because we aren’t inflicting harm on animals, we aren’t contributing to our environment’s destruction through animal agriculture, and we also can improve our health. If animals matter morally, we cannot justify harming them for no good reason.

    Think about the victims.
    Please do the right thing.
