PETA Is Running a Campaign Saying "Meat Kills"
I recently found that PETA is running a campaign that "Meat Kills" because of the recent Swine Flu scare. I am saddened by their lack of ethics and the fact that they clearly have an agenda. I got to thinking recently there was a strawberry truck that lost control near my home and ran into a passenger car and killed the driver, would I write a story title strawberries kill? Of course not!
If anything PETA should take this opportunity to remind people that Swine FLU or HVN1 is prevented by washing your hands. In fact on CNN yesterday Larry King and Dr Oz spent a great deal of time saying that we as individuals need to spend more time washing our hands to prevent this virus.
As a reminder the USDA stated this week that HVN1 is transmitted via human to human contact. With that said why are the Russinas and Japanese banning pork product shipments? Is it to promote hysteria or is it to hurt this country? My guess is it is the later.
This is one American who want buy into this false hysteria!
I will be enjoying some tasty bacon for breakfast today to support our pork growers!
