About Red Meat and A Healing Diet
by Linda Rector Page, N.D., Ph.D.

Eating red meats puts us a step away from environmental harmony. Human digestive systems are not easily carnivorous. The body has to struggle to transmute red meat energy. Eating red meat is a lot like extracting oil out of the ground. It often costs more to get the oil out than it is worth on the market. Thus meat protein, which the body can use, is often cancelled out by the length of digestion time, and after-dinner lethargy, because a disproportionate amount of energy goes to the task of assimilation. Frequent intake of red meatís highly concentrated protein can also create toxicity from unused nitrogens, that are hard for the elimination system to cope with or excrete. A common example of this is the frequent instance of kidney stone formations in heavy red meat eaters.

Animals are also closer to us on the bio-scale of life. They experience fear when killed. They donít want to be eaten. Unlike eating plants, there is no uplifting transmutation of energy. Instead our bodies become denser, with more internal fermentation and body odor. In addition to avoiding red meats for humanitarian reasons, and an awareness of what meats do to the body, the red meats available today are shot through with hormones and slow-release antibiotics, and preserved with nitrates or nitrites. All these are passed into your body at the dinner table. The stockyard animals we eat now are often sick and over medicated, and their meat is tainted, chemicalized and adulterated. Red meat is the biggest diet contributor to excess protein levels and saturated fat. No one argues that less fat in the diet is healthier, or that saturated fats are the most harmful. Avoidance of red meat considerably reduces dietary saturated fat and concentrated calories. Cooked red meats are acid-forming in the body, and when red meat is cooked to well-done can create chemical compounds capable of causing many diseases.

Finally, meat eating promotes more aggressive behavior - a lack of gentleness in personality, and arrogance. From a spiritual point of view, red meat eating encourages ties to the material things in life, expansion of territory, and the self-righteous intolerance that makes adversaries.

People who do not eat red meats have a well documented history of lower risk for heart disease, obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, and several types of cancer. These people also play an active role in conserving precious water, topsoil, and energy resources that are wasted by an animal-based diet. Avoiding red meats has become one of the most important things you can do for your own health and that of the planet.

God's Creatures Ministry is committed to spreading God's compassion to all He has made based on The Scriptures. Although we are a Christian Ministry, we encourage all to have their own animal welfare committee in their community. We extend our resources to those who would like to learn more or begin their own God's Creatures Ministry as an extension of us. God created us to have a vegetarian diet and commissioned us to protect His animals. Instead, we have exploited them for our entertainment, fashion, appetite and useless, torturous research. These creatures have the right to live as they were created to live. Because we live IN this world, but are not OF this world, we strive to bring God's mercy and justice to all. We live in God's Kingdom now where Jesus, The Sacrificial Lamb, The Prince of Peace, The Lion of Judah reigns. We look forward to that day when all of creation will be 'set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God' (Romans 8:21) where a little child will lead and guide God's creatures (see Isaiah 11:5-9).
