Question From Readers
Hey, Mark, what do you think about the motives behind the new global diet guidelines? Are these guys really sincere or is it something else?
I’ve been discussing the oncoming war against meat for several months, and we’ve all seen it brewing for years. These EAT-Lancet dietary guidelines mark the first major offensive. Don’t expect this to slow down, or for the powers-that-be who want you to eat less meat and buy more plant products to give up. Meat isn’t very profitable. That’s what it comes down to. Not the climate. Not the “health risks.” Profit.
If I’m feeling extra suspicious, I might even consider that the lust of profit may be even deeper, and that they’re banking on an increase in the rate of chronic diseases related to diet—diseases that require ongoing prescriptions and lifelong medical care.
