Well, folks, it seems like the World Health Organization (WHO) has decided to wage war on our barbeques and Sunday roasts. Yep, you read that right. The head of WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has declared a full-on assault against meat and traditional farming. Now, isn’t that just peachy?
“Our food systems are harming the health of people and planet. Food systems contribute to over 30% of greenhouse gas emissions, and account for almost one-third of the global burden of disease. Transforming food systems is therefore essential,” Tedros said. So, apparently, your steak dinner is now a threat to global health. I mean, who knew?
Earlier this month, the United Nations Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) dropped its food guidance for first-world countries in an effort to reduce carbon emissions. The message was clear: ‘rich’ countries need to consume less meat. Because, you know, nothing says “progress” like telling people what they can and cannot eat.
According to Bloomberg, “Nations that over-consume meat will be advised to limit their intake, while developing countries — where under-consumption of meat adds to a prevalent nutrition challenge — will need to improve their livestock farming, according to the FAO.” I’m sure that’ll go down a treat with the American public.
And hold onto your hats, because here comes the best part. The globalists want us common folks to start munching on bugs, weeds, and synthetic ‘meat’. Why? Well, they say bugs “consume fewer resources than traditional livestock.” My question is: have these people ever been to a summer barbecue? Can you imagine serving your guests a plate of crickets and dandelions? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
Now, I’m all for protecting the environment and promoting sustainable practices. But there’s a difference between encouraging responsible consumption and trying to dictate what people put on their dinner plates. And honestly, isn’t there something a bit hypocritical about these elites telling us to eat bugs while they jet around the world in private planes?
Look, if you want to eat bugs and synthetic meat, go right ahead. But don’t tell me what I can or can’t grill on my barbeque. The day I take dietary advice from a bureaucrat is the day pigs fly. Or should I say, the day pigs stop flying because we’re not allowed to eat them anymore.
