My name is sharmili. I am a freshman at the University of Hartford, majoring in Biology. After graduating I plan on attending medical school, and becoming a Pediatrician.
Forks Over Knives is a film which they talk about production of meat and solution for eating meat. In this article we are going talk briefly about the production of meat and how it affects the consumer.
About 40% of people in U.S.A is getting obese due to consuming of more meat and they spend about 2.25 T dollars in healthcare. Some major problem people in America is facing was heart disease, cancer and diabetes. About 460,000 American women has died due to heart disease this year. This could also leads to blood pressure. Not only the adults are affected by this, even children of this generation are also affected. I would say that this could be the first generation were children lives shorter lives than their parents. The only solution for this problem is eating more vegetables than meat mainly spinach. It is like plant based diet.
Generally, people say that they eat meat because to get protein. I can tell that protein is not only present in the meat it is also present in plants too. We can also find diet cholesterol present only in animal and also some main protein found in milk.
People facing more trouble by eating meat. It has been found that about 1, 00,000 people in U.S.A have breast cancer. It is not a good news to us. The study says that about 14,000 death prostate cancer has been occurred in U.S.A and 18 death prostate occurred in Japan. We have a question like how come it possible? The best answer for it is in Japan, people won’t eat meat more and they will consume more fish, rice and vegetable they are taking energy from that.
I do eat meat. It’s not that I’m talking about not to eat meat and at behind I’m eating meat. I know that, it’s hard to stop this kind of practices but step we can do is, we can eat meat a little and whenever we eat meat we should eat double the amount of vegetable and fruits. And we can also try to avoid meat in our daily life.
I can also say that nutrients from animal food will increase the way to cancer and nutrients from plant food will decrease the way to cancer. In future, I wish doctors should use nutrient food instead of drugs to treat the patient. When we become ages we will have endothelial cells in our body gets damaged, it can be prevented when we consume more plant based food.
I conclude by saying avoid meat and say hi to plant based food so that we can reduce the cost of buying medicine and we can use those money for buying organic food and healthy food. So I’m going to try this and lead the way because I really care about my family.
