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.

“Best cancer theory EVER. Exclamation point in the title got
me intrigued, but they had me with the ribbons in fig. 4. You just
can’t falsify that sh*t.

This is peak PubMed.”
