A new movement is taking off to help reduce the amount of meat and animal fats in our diets. Dr. Bob Lawrence, director of the Center for a Livable Future at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health says he is not pushing America to become vegetarians but cutting back on meat and animal products will help reduce heart disease and certain cancers. Dr Lawrence admits in public at a party he will eat some meat if served but at home he eats fish and pasta with non cream based sauces. This article shows how America’s meat consumption is on the rise as is heart disease and cancer. The China Study by T. Colin Campbell sets the amount of animal protein at 10%. Above that heart disease and cancer sets in.
