If Meat Came With Warning Labels…

Reading the book Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs and Wear Cows by Melanie Joy and she lists what would happen if meat had warning labels like alcohol and it would look a little like this…

Surgeon General’s Warning: Eating meat can increase your risk of dying from heart disease by 50%

Surgeon General’s Warning: Eating meat can increase your risk of developing colon cancer by 300% and significantly increase your risk of developing other cancers

Surgeon General’s Warning: Daily meat consumption can triple your risk of prostate enlargement and regular milk consumption doubles your risk

Surgeon General’s Warning: The animal that became your meat may have been fed euthanized cat and dog; rendered feathers; hooves; hair; skin; blood, and intestines; road kill; animal manure; and carcasses from animals of their own species

Surgeon General’s Warning: This product may contain dangerous levels of pesticides, arsenic, antibiotics, and hormones

Surgeon General’s Warning: This product may contain microbial organisms that could lead to illness or death

Surgeon General’s Warning: Production of this food has contributed to serious environmental degradation, animal cruelty, and human rights violations

Makes you want to eat meat, right. Wrong. Which is why animal products don’t have warning labels. Because if they did, no one, in their right mind, would consume it.
