Meatless Monday-Myths and Facts
Recently, the role of meat and other animal products in the diet has come under fire, with activist organizations pushing for the introduction of meatless meals at home, in the workplace and in school cafeterias. But going meatless isn't a shortcut to saving the planet or eating healthy and may actually do more harm than good.
Today's Meatless Monday campaign is not what it seems. It's not a grassroots effort to celebrate healthy eating. This well-funded, radical campaign pushes an extreme animal rights and environmental agenda by promoting false claims about animal agriculture. The campaign's clever marketing and celebrity endorsements may be misleading but the public deserves to know the truth.
Bottom line: Meatless Monday seeks to eliminate consumer choice the ability that we each have to determine the right food choices for ourselves and our families. The Alliance believes this is unacceptable and not in line with the beliefs of most Americans.
