Warning »MEAT KILLS« on all meat and meat products

More and more information about general harmfulness of meat and mass stockbreeding transpires every day.

Meat is, also scientifically proved, a risk factor for many diseases e.g.: cancer, heart and veins diseases, diabetes, negative influence on mind…These illnesses are the most frequent cause for mortality rate of humans and therefore represent a growing financial burden for health service.

Food and agriculture organisation (FAO) of the United Nations has recently announced shocking facts: the livestock sector is responsible for 18% of greenhouse gas emissions, which is a higher share then the one of transport, and is also the major cause for soil and water degradation.

In order to prevent from negative consequences of stockbreeding, it is urgent to abandon or at least restrict the consumption of meat. For this reason The society for the rights and liberation of animals from Slovenia has made an initiative to the Government of Slovenia to attach to meat and meat products warnings like: “Meat causes cancer”, “Meat affects climate”, “Meat causes suffering to animals”, “Meat inflicts upon mind”,…

This initiative follows an example of the campaign against negative impact of smoking, where warnings like “Smoking kills” and others can be seen on packets of cigarettes. Although there is no doubt about smoking being harmful, this harm can not be compared with one caused by the stockbreeding. The rate of mortality caused by meat consumption is vitally higher then the one due to smoking. The environmental damage caused by smoking is incomparable with the harm caused by stockbreeding. And the climate changes caused by smoking are negligible comparing to the harmfulness of stockbreeding which is the main climate destroyer. Therefore warnings such as “Meat kills” would be at least of the same justification as warnings “Smoking kills”.

Our suggestion is that you carry out a similar action in your country. Our action in Slovenia was covered by some of the most watched media.

With kind regards,

Damjan Likar
