THE TRUTH ABOUT PETA and MEAT
by Roberta Lee, DD., PhD., ND. TheDogPlace Science Editor
is one of my fields so I would like to point out that God gave us
dominion over all living things and all things have a purpose in His
grand plan. No one knows for sure when man began to eat meat but it
was long before he learned to cultivate crops. When man became
a meat eater, he rose up above all other creatures on planet earth,
just as God had decreed.
HSUS and PETA people don’t know the body and
or the history of how we evolved. They speak from emotion with the voice of
authority. I wish I had a dollar for every patient that
came to me run down physically, emotionally
depressed, and in total despair, from trying to become a vegetarian. So right now I am gong to say this, and I
more than likely will repeat it. MAN BECAME A MEAT EATER and
he cannot change without harm to the metabolic makeup of this body.
The harm can be as serious as disease or as minor as acne, depending
on the the individual.
In case you don’t know the difference between
being a vegetarian and a vegan here it is.
A vegetarian will eat some animal by-products;
milk, eggs, cheese, or yogurt. A vegan will eat no meat or by-products
from animals sources.
So, why the fuss about
animal rights people saying we must become vegan? Well, let me explain from the beginning.
WHAT IS METABOLIC MAKEUP?
The human body is made up of approximately
one hundred trillion cells. These cells are constantly metabolizing the
nutrients supplied to them. By the time that you have read this sentence,
over one million, three hundred fifty thousand
new cells will be born in your body replacing
those that no longer function efficiently. One billion new cells are made each hour. Each cell in itself is far more complicated
than even the most intricate electronic computer
and all the cells together form the most
complex system that can be imagined- your
We know of and have isolated more than 50
nutritional substances which the body must
have regularly to maintain growth, development
and a normal, healthful condition. In addition, there are numerous unidentified
substances in natural foods which are known
to be of value. The human body is the most complex and intricate
chemical laboratory ever designed. It takes in the air we breathe, the water
we drink, the food we eat and
of biochemical and bioelectrical
produces a beautiful life force
Nutrition cannot replace needed surgical operations, substitute
for structural adjustments, or correct all disease conditions. A proper, well-balanced nutritional program
will however supply the raw materials
which are absolutely
necessary for maximum body function.
Proper nutrition can and does, prevent,
lessen and help heal the chronic metabolic deficiencies that plague our society. Good nutrition is absolutely necessary to
help prevent birth defects, chronic diseases,
delinquency, crime, senility, exhaustion,
depression and the multitude of other conditions
that are so persistent. It can contribute to many years of happy
living that are free of ailments and a life
filled with a better sense of well-being.
I must point out, that there are at the very
least, ten metabolic types. Each type will require a different combination
of foods to maintain or to achieve optimal
health. It requires a very lengthy written test and
extensive blood analysis to discern which
of the ten you are. For the person that is in search of optimal
health, it is foolhardy to take the word
of an organization (PETA) that says young
people would be better off drinking beer
than milk and that doesn’t know enough about
nutrition to be able to explain why margarine
is better for you than butter. To change ones metabolic type can not only
cause health problems, but if you manage
to survive the health problems that will
surely assail you and you continue on with the diet of a vegetarian, it can take up to 7 years to become accustomed
to the new diet so that your
in a healthful way, and then
maybe, you can
say that you have successfully
There is so much to know about metabolic
typing. It is not something that you read a book
to learn. It takes years of study and application. That is why it is a specialty in today’s
health care field. It would be foolhardy
for me to think that I could teach you that specialty in this article, but I
can make you aware. Aware of your health and the health of your
pet. In Health Care it is ALWAYS foolhardy
to make a blanket statement about any health
issue because each and every body functions
differently. That is why I would like make you aware of
what other individuals are willing to do
to you, your children and your grandchildren. Then I will let you be the judge of what
you are going to do about it.
It is always wise to be suspect of wolves
in sheep’s clothing. If an organization has a political ax to
grind, and that ax has nothing to do with
the topic that they are purporting to support,
then research into the organization before
you put your health into their hands, let
alone your money. You certainly would not go to an auto mechanic
to have your gall bladder taken out. On the other hand, the surgeon would not make a good car mechanic.
I am not a political person. I AM however a flag waver and I’m proud of
it. My feelings are “My country right or wrong,
my country.” What I love the most about this country is
that you can always make a difference if
you want to badly enough. Don’t ever think that just one person can
do nothing, because each of us
is just one
person, but when we come together
for a common
idea, or good, then we become
the voice that
makes change not only possible,
but a fact.
THE CALL TO ARMS
The call has gone out for change purported
to be for the good of all. It will take every
thinking man and woman using all of their
might and intellect to make sure that the
human race and all of the animals that we
love and hold dear, are not wiped from the
face of the earth. I know how extreme that sounds. I know just how radical it may seem to you. Well, if that is what you think then I would
like to quote a few, just a very few paragraphs
from the web site of the ALF.
But first, lets look at what others are finding
out. They too are aware of just how threatening
this movement is. Just how much it can and will change the
world as we know it today, if
don’t get involved.
Kathleen Marquardt said in 1993;
“Animal rights is against all animal use—even
to save lives. The animal rights agenda seeks to ban all
animal ownership no matter how humane. The
breadth of this ambition is staggering.
NO HUNTING, RANCHING OR MEDICINE
It means no hunting, or fishing. No livestock farming or ranching. No use of animals in science, medicine, or
education. There’d be no vaccine, no insulin, no AIDS
or other medical research. No meat, fish, eggs, or even honey. No leather shoes, wool sweaters, down jackets
or comforters, or even silk.
And this just scratches the surface. No zoos, aquariums, circuses, rodeos, horse
racing, carriage rides, or animal actors
in films. No butter, cheese, yogurt, ice cream. No meat byproducts in your dog or cat food—not
that it makes any difference, because there would be no pets, not even seeing eye dogs.” This is the lead-in
to an article written by Kathleen Marquardt as she tried to awaken the American public
to the designs of the ALF.
IN A PERFECT WORLD?
It is clear that the ALF and PETA do not
want us to understand the scope of their
intentions just yet. They are not quite in place and do not enjoy
the power that would be necessary for a movement
of that scope. But don’t fool yourself. Every day, and every night they are working. They believe in what they are doing, even
if it is demented, deranged and satanic. They will try to keep you from understanding
their plans for this planet, by the use of
such phrases as, “In a perfect world,” “of course this might take another 2000 years,”
“Only when people refuse to support pet
shops, puppy mills, and breeders will this
chain of misery be broken.”
Now you might ask, “what is wrong with those
statements? I agree with what is being said?” Do you? Have you read them carefully? We all agree that the puppy mills and pet
shops have to go, for the good of millions
of dogs and cats each year, but what about
breeders? If all of the puppy mills AND breeders are
not allowed to breed dogs and cats, and if
you adopt them from a shelter already spayed
or neutered, where will future generations
of dogs and cats come from? Do you see just how very carefully PETA and
ALF slip that into what we all know to be
their own agenda? Most of us would read right over that sentence,
and see nothing wrong with it. We might even agree with it in theory, without
thinking it through first. Then we would send them our money, or support
their efforts in some other benign way. Of course then they have what they want. They have our money with which to move forward
with their world wide plan.
AT THE TOP
You see, the people that are at the top of
these organizations are very well educated
scientist and doctors. They understand just what it will do to the
human species of the world, if you take all
meat and animal by products away all at once. It would make the epidemic of the 1917 flue
look like child’s play.
These organizations have designed just enough
truth in what they are peddling to the public,
and in what it takes to invoke your emotions,
moving you forward into their web. Of course it is obscene the way we keep and
kill the meat that we raise to eat. But you see what happens when good men look
the other way? We have known about the horrible treatment
in slaughter houses for decades. We hear that the FDA is inspecting them to make sure
that the animals are treated humanly. But
for decades we have had reporters telling
us that, that just isn’t so. Do you realize that there are only 64 FDA
inspectors to inspect slaughter houses, holding
pens, breeding lots, puppy mills and so much
more. Of course the FDA can’t do its job with just
64 inspectors. So, who suffers? THE ANIMALS. Who takes advantage of the situation? The
ALF and PETA and others that join their ranks,
to tell us that this treatment has to stop. And that they have the solution to the problem. Would you like to know what their solution
This information is so important to the future
of you and your family that I am sure you
will want to read what AFL and PETA are really up to when this series continues next month.
If you love dogs and enjoy their company; if you want to
have the freedom to own or breed them, you need to know how they
can be used to drive a wedge in societal beliefs.
If you eat butter or drink milk; if you wear silk shirts or
leather shoes; if you love fried chicken - then you need to
understand the ways in which "Animal Rights" or "AR
Extremists" use animals as the vehicle to drive away with
your God-given rights.
Do not be fooled by the appeal to your humanity. These
groups are not about animal welfare. If they were, they
would rescue all the frightened pets waiting to be killed in the
"humane" societies and animal shelters. They have
the funds to do so. They got the money from you!
This may be a difficult subject but to know your enemy and
his true agenda is to have some hope of defeating him.
Some of the greatest minds in the sport have spoken out
about the true agenda of PETA, ALF, and other such
organizations. Patty Haines, Sally Bishop, Trish Kanzler,
the list is long and distinguished. We should take heed.
So, because this is really about PEOPLE and not at all about
protecting the animals, we have included
background information that will help you weigh the honesty and
intent of such organizations.
As gene manipulation, cloning, and the newly approved
genetic vaccines enter the marketplace, we have a new duty to our
pets, and to our children's children. The future of
the human race is yet to be told.
Nanotechnology may indeed lead to healthier lives but one
has to wonder where else it will lead in the meantime?
