The Top Ten Dairy & Meat Industry Lies

By Robert Cohen, NotMilk.com

"It is hard to believe that a man is telling the truth
when you know that you would lie if you were in his place."
- H. L. Mencken

The top ten most powerful employees of the dairy industry are compensated an average of $500,000 per year in salary and benefits. It is virtually impossible to be paid so much money and not follow the "company" line.

By eating animal products, one shows no compassion to the human body. By eating dirty fuel consisting of cholesterol, saturated animal fat, and relatively large amounts of sulfur-based amino acids (methionine and cysteine), one places considerable stress upon the body's skeletal, cardiovascular and immune systems.

It is easer for the fairy and meat industry to purchase a doctor's integrity, than it is for a loser-of-a-man to purchase the favors of a streetwalker.

Ten lies promoted by those who would have you eat meat and cheese:

The remaining 237 subjects were men who ate meat on most days of the week...vegans had higher testosterone levels than vegetarians and meat eaters."
