… so says Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Forbes Magazine. “Would we all be better off if we dramatically reduced meat to the point of one meal a week? I would say yes,” says Dr. Bob Lawrence, director of the Center for a Livable Future at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “But the reality is that, from a public health perspective, if we just get some modest reductions in our intake of saturated fats, it’ll have a big impact.” If you just can’t stand never tasting meat again, at least reduce your intake drastically. It is clear to most scientist and doctors that the increased saturated fats most Americans are eating, is the root cause of cancers and many other diseases. We have a choice! Don’t get sick and ask “Why me?”

Allison Van Dusen of Forbes says reducing your saturated fat intake, animal products, can significantly improve your health. “Would we all be better off if we dramatically reduced meat to the point of one meal a week? I would say yes,” says Dr. Bob Lawrence, director of the Center for a Livable Future at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. “But the reality is that, from a public health perspective, if we just get some modest reductions in our intake of saturated fats, it’ll have a big impact.” So if you are not ready to become a vegetarian or vegan, try really hard to reduce your animal protein intake by eating much less meat, eggs, milk, cheese and butter. Your health is your choice! Choose wisely.

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.
