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.
