Look What NAFTA and MEAT Hath Wrought

NAFTA-Induced Meat

The current pandemic we are experiencing, originating in Mexico, is a gift to all Americans from NAFTA and the MEAT industry. And you can also thank your Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member, Bill Clinton, and all his "free trade" globalist buddies, for signing NAFTA into law.

Way to go, Bill. Thanks for opening the door to infecting the entire U.S. with all sorts of disease and illegal aliens coming across the Mexican border. This is EXACTLY what Ross Perot warned all Americans about back in 1992 -- but he was edged off the stage by the Democrats and the Republicans, the two political parties that are destroying the United States.(1)

Maybe after 100,000 Americans die of Swine flu, caused by Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO) and/or sub-standard practices, the criminal bozos running the country will be kicked out and Americans will vote in reps who will finally close the U.S.-Mexican border, and remedy the flood of mass illegal aliens invading the U.S.(2)

Meat-Induced NATFA

The production of pork and beef, whether here or in Mexico, not only takes a serious toll on the environment, but also meat is not the healthiest of foods for us to consume.

Some argue we are omnivores, thus justifying their love of meat by the romantic idea that we were built to consume meat. Horseshit. If we are omnivores, it's only because that is a left-over (no pun intended) from our past evolution. Homo sapiens has evolved from the oldest blood type, type O (as basically meat-eaters) to the most recent blood type, type A-B. In between, when humans invented agriculture, their blood type evolved to type A and then, with the advent of dairy, type B came in.

Also, the small canine teeth we have are similarly just left-overs. We now have much large molars compared to other animals, like dogs, that are definitely meat-eaters. Our molars are designed for grinding grain and nuts and the large broad teeth in front are designed for biting apples and fruits. Thus the canines are evolving out, and the other teeth evolving in, as we make our transition away from meat-eating and our former carnivore status and into some other status.

The intestines of modern-day Homo sapiens are no longer ideal for digesting meat, as they are so long (almost 28 feet), the meat often putrefies by the time it gets to the end. On the other hand, dogs (that never developed agriculture) still have relatively short intestines for processing meat. The putrefied meat that sits in our mid-sections  causes colon cancer. Studies have shown that populations with high meat intake have high rates of colon cancer.

According to Neal Barnard, MD and president of the Physician's Committee for Responsible Medicine:

"The beef industry has contributed to more deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters and all automobile accidents combined."

Thus, it's no wonder that according to the largest study of diet and health in modern history, under T. Coin Campbell, director of the China Health Project "Vegetarians live longer lives."

Unspeakable Cruelty to Animals

Not only is the consumption of meat at this point UNhuman, it's unspeakably cruel to animals, specifically, cows, pigs and chickens.

Below is a revealing trilogy of award-winning short videos on the meat industry. Anyone interested in the effects of meat on animals and people should watch these before eating another hamburger, hotdog or ham sandwich. The first one is called THE MEATRIX and can be screened at http://www.themeatrix.com.

Also, if you can stomach it (pun intended), watch this clip from the feature, FAST FOOD NATION, on the animal cruelty inflicted by some or all of the meat-processing industry. The clip is here.

Pigs get much the same treatment as cows (but not the ones that passed NAFTA, unfortunately).
