2020 Health Victory for Plant Diet

On February 25, 2020, the International Journal of Epidemiology published the conclusion of a study commissioned by the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health and the World Cancer Research Fund which found that women who drink cow’s milk could increase their risk of breast cancer by as much as 80 percent in comparison with women who drink soy milk.

This study remains significant because it serves as an example of the Truth unraveling.

In the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, doctors smoked cigarettes and advertised healthy benefits of smoking such as relaxation.  (See below 1949 commercial “More Doctors Smoke Camels Than Any Other Cigarette.”)


Then, in 1969, the Public Health Smoking Act required all cigarette packaging to contain the statement:  “WARNING:  THE SURGEON GENERAL HAS DETERMINED THAT CIGARETTE SMOKING IS DANGEROUS TO YOUR HEALTH.”  Finally, doctors gradually ceased smoking and began warning patients of health dangers.

Since 1970, we have heard about the healthy benefits of the “new tobacco,” ie, meat, poultry, fish, dairy and eggs from Big Pharma doctors and Big Ag companies, but Preventative Medicine doctors and educators such as Neal Barnard, MD of the Physicians’ Committee for Responsible Medicine; Michael Greger, MD who predicted the current global pandemic in 2006; T. Colin Campbell, PhD, biochemist and Professor Emeritus at Cornell University; Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, heart disease expert who treated President Bill Clinton; Michael Klaper, MD, NASA nutrition advisor; Joel Kahn, MD, one of the world’s top cardiologists; Garth Davis, MD, Ironman triathlete; Ellsworth Wareham, MD, centenarian and one of the earliest practitioners of open heart surgery who practiced until age 74 and trained residents until age 95; et al. risked ridicule and contempt from their colleagues and the general public.

Preventative Medicine doctors and educators; Nonhuman Rights advocates, academicians and lawyers; ethical environmentalists and plant based nutritionists deserve Respect and Praise for their Accomplishments, Courage and Passion in the arenas of Education and Awareness, Advocacy and Legislation, and Rescue and Sanctuary to save the planet; solve the human sickness, sick care, financial, pandemic crises; eradicate world hunger; and end unnecessary violence and suffering (and consequential hatred and discrimination) while Big Pharma, Big Ag and cohorts focus on their next profit motivated venture, covid vaccines.
