Decrease in Farm Subsidies?
The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) has been
stating for years that the government spends tens of billions of dollars
in handouts to an agricultural system that supports the unhealthiest
food products: those high in saturated fat, cholesterol, and calories,
such as meat, dairy products, and sweeteners. On the other hand, fruits
and vegetables, that offer tremendous health benefits, receive a
fraction of the support. However, time might have come due to hard
economic circumstances, to cut some of those unhealthy subsidies as they
become target amid spending cuts.

The meat and dairy industries are powerful groups that shine for
their lack of ethics and are led solely by profit. It would be admirable
if indeed the government moves forward and decides to support industries
that bring healing and reconciliation to God’s Creation, benefiting
humans, animals and the environment.
