As a Vegan Englishman; I am glad we got away from all this EU junk at the beginning of this year. I find it a little odd that vegetarians are not allowed to use words like ‘milk’, but as part of this meat eating drive by the EU, people who eat Beef can be called ‘Beefatarians’. Are we soon going to see new EU legislation that says you cannot call someone who undertakes a plant based diet a ‘Vegetarian’ – as this infringes on the name ‘Beefatarian’ which now seems to be the ‘thing’ for beef eaters ! No doubt the EU will attack the plant eaters in every way they can; whilst supporting ‘he men’ who look the part by having a steak for lunch. And an additional beef eating thought – the World Health Organisation (WHO) says the strongest evidence for an association with eating red meat is for colorectal cancer. However, there is also evidence of links with pancreatic and prostate cancer.

EU Backs Campaign Encouraging Public To Become ‘Beefatarians’
The EU has financed more than €3.5 million to help the Proud of European Beef initiative to run for three years
Acampaign encouraging the public to become a ‘beefatarian’ has been backed by the EU.
The Proud of European Beef initiative is spearheaded by corporations Provacuno and APAQ-W. It is a three-year-long campaign that aims to makes consumers ‘confident’ about their decision to eat red meat.
The campaign is set to cost €4.5 million (approximately $5.39 million) – with ads running across countries such as France, Belgium and Spain. It will receive 80 percent (€3.6 million) of its funding from the European Commission.
‘A refusal to eat meat’
“The scope of the project is not only to highlighting the benefits of the product but to make the consumer feel identified and supported in its choice regarding it,” the campaign’s site states.
“Consumer behavior may lead to a refusal to eat meat due to the multiple types of information presented nowadays.
“But even so, those consumers who choose to eat red meat should feel at ease should they wish to reaffirm their choice for this product.”
And from the NON animal eating side; there is this video:
Should the EU promote red meat?
Despite the campaign, The World Health Organization classifies red meat as a Group 2A carcinogen.
This means products such as pork, beef, and lamb ‘probably cause cancer’.
Moreover, the WHO says the strongest evidence for an association with eating red meat is for colorectal cancer. However, there is also evidence of links with pancreatic and prostate cancer.
Hey, become a Beefatarian:
These Vegan athletes below look so ‘wimpy’ – looks like they need a good steak to put on some muscle !!
