Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Salads More Expensive than Hamburgers

The Farm Bill governs what children are fed in schools and what food assistance programs can distribute to recipients. The bill provides billions of dollars in subsidies; however, most of its support goes to the production of meat and dairy products by giving more than 70% of subsidies to those industries. On the other hand, fruit and vegetable farmers receive less than 1% of government subsidies.

It’s no wonder that some diseases such as obesity, heart disease, cancer and stokes, among many others, are on the rise in the US and other countries were the typical diet is heavily based on animal products. The government, which has the power to support industries that promote health and compassion toward animals, chooses to support those that bring misery to humanity and animals. Sadly, greed, power and profit drive many industries as well as the US government in this case.
