everyone’s talking about how meat is now “officially” linked to cancer. most of us have known this for 20+ years, but it’s good to have (more) evidence.
but i guess i’m “that person” now, so: please kindly also remember that
1) no matter how someone gets cancer (smoking, doing drugs, eating meat), they still deserve compassion for the fucking hell they are now living through 2) millions of (vegan yoga-doing long-walk-taking meditation-practicing happy-thoughts-thinking) people get cancer just by living on this toilet earth, through no fault of their own. many (most?) cancers are completely random/environmental, and putting a focus on “causes” that are preventable by individual action takes the blame off where it (mostly) should be: the capitalist oligarchy that owns this country and ensures we don’t have clean water air food supplies cars toys clothing etc etc forever,
that we are slaves to plastic, toxicity, destruction, pinkwashing, etc forever
that we will blame ourselves instead of rising up to topple the structures that oppress and control us
blah blah you know the deal
that said if you eat meat you’re still kinda crappy obvi but still
