Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Another Culprit in Meat that Leads to Heart Disease

Saturated fat and cholesterol in meat don’t seem to be the only culprits contributing to heart disease. Scientists have found that a substance produced by bacteria in the intestines after people eat red meat is quickly converted by the liver into another chemical called TMAO that gets into the blood and increases the risk of heart disease. Interestingly, scientists found that vegans did not show a burst of TMAO in their blood after they ate steak.

Please visit Culprit in Heart Disease Goes Beyond Meat's Fat:
Wouldn’t it make much more sense to encourage people to avoid eating meat than to spend millions of dollars, time, energy, resources and even suffering of animals in the experimentation process, in the quest to find an antibiotic that would kill the bacteria that produces the precursor of TMAO? Transitioning to a plant-based diet heals all of God’s Creation.
