Meat-Based Diet Kills at Least 45,000 People in the UK Every Year

According to a new study by the Oxford University's heart unit just lowering meat consumption in the UK would prevent about 45,000 premature deaths a year. Researchers concluded that reducing meat intake would prevent 31,000 deaths from heart disease, 9,000 deaths from cancer and 5,000 deaths from strokes each year. Consumption of meat products has been conclusively linked to colon cancer and heart disease.

It is no surprising that, when we cause misery to other creatures and we are driven by taste and profit, disease and suffering result. When we make compassionate and responsible choices, we participate in the healing and reconciliation of God’s Creation.
