    American Policy Center ^ | January 4, 2019 | Kathleen Marquardt
    A couple weeks ago, Tom DeWeese sent out a letter about the World Wildlife Fund and beef. It reads in part: The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is one of the top three most powerful, radical, anti-free enterprise, UN environmental groups in the world. And WWF has succeeded in taking over the American Cattle industry! The WWF has forced cattlemen to follow radical Sustainable rules through the establishment of the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef. They are getting away with this industry grab because the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association is now under the control of the World Wildlife Fund. And the...

    The Israeli company Aleph Farms aims to make cuts of environmentally friendly meat that resemble the real thing using animal cells, also called "lab-grown" or "clean" meat. Aleph has now created a prototype steak, the first produced publicly in the world, the company said on Wednesday. While several companies have made prototypes of lab-grown meats, none are available in restaurants or grocery stores. Aleph got its start with help from an Israeli research institute and an incubator that is part of the food giant that owns Sabra — the most popular hummus in America. For the first time in its...

    Subscribe to the Chicks! I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. If you want to be vegan, be vegan. I don’t care. I only care if you’re the type of vegan who constantly feels the need to judge me and lecture me for eating meat and wearing leather boots. If you’re in my face, I’ll dial the vegan jokes to 11. (Actually, I’m always in the mood for a good vegan joke. They’re funny!) Actually, one of my friends is a vegan, so see? It’s actually possible for a meat eater and a vegan to be friends. However,...

    The gang, from Direct Action Everywhere, flashed anti-meat eating signs with "It's not food, it's violence" emblazoned on them and barked out a speech at the Touro Steakhouse in Brighton. But after barging through the restaurant they were ordered to leave with jeering diners chanting “you’re not singing anymore” as they were marched out. Footage of the demonstration begins with the person filming saying: “This smells horrible, look at all the flesh.” But as a spokeswoman attempts to give a speech about the benefits of veganism, patrons can be heard mocking her with one mimicking a cow mooing while waiters...

    North Korea has ordered its citizens to donate dog hides to the regime as part of celebrations marking the 73rd anniversary of the founding of the Workers’ Party of Korea on October 10. The government collects dog hides ahead of the anniversary each year “to raise funds for the party”, the dissident Daily NK website reported, but this year the authorities have raised the amount of money that families who do not keep dogs are required to pay instead. “Although the party is asking for dog hides, there are not many houses that have the luxury of raising a dog...

  • Tofurky sues to stop Missouri law over meat terminology

    Vegetarian food-maker Tofurky filed a lawsuit in Missouri on Monday seeking to defend its right to describe its products with meat terminology such as "sausage" and "hot dogs," as long as the packaging makes clear what the ingredients are. The Hood River, Oregon-based company and The Good Food Institute, which advocates for plant-based diets, say a Missouri law set to take effect Tuesday that bars companies from "misrepresenting" products as meat if they're not from "harvested livestock or poultry" is too vague and could be used to go after a range of vegetarian products that use such terminology. Tofurky says...

  • Meat-heavy low-carb diets can 'shorten lifespan': study

    Daily Mail ^ | August 16, 2018 | AFP
    Middle-aged people who get roughly half their daily calories from carbohydrates live several years longer on average than those with meat-heavy low-carb diets, researchers reported Friday. The findings, published in The Lancet medical journal, challenge a trend in Europe and North America toward so-called Paleo diets that shun carbohydrates in favour of animal protein and fat. Proponents of these "Stone Age" diets argue that the rapid shift 10,000 years ago -- with the advent of agriculture -- to grains, dairy and legumes has not allowed the human body enough time to adapt to these high-carb foods. For the study, receiving...

    Expect to see a dramatic increase in new technology coming into the pork industry as a host of manufacturers from diverse industries look at animal agriculture and attempt to measure or monitor welfare, environmental pressures and food safety with their technologies. That was the first message Lee Whittington, president and CEO of the Prairie Swine Centre had for delegates to the 2018 Banff Pork Seminar in Banff, Alta. The second is that what will be needed is a method to evaluate systematically how well the products work, the data integrity and security, and the link to decision support software and...

    WeWork is going meat-free and taking every one of its employees with it. The startup cited environmental concerns in announcing its immediate company-wide ban on meat. In an email sent Thursday, WeWork cofounder Miguel McKelvey told his 6,000 or so employees the company will no longer serve meat at employee events or reimburse them for meals that include red meat, poultry and pork. It's a bold move for the real estate behemoth believed to be worth $20 billion -- and the most assertive in a series of recent steps large companies have taken to promote sustainability.
