It is possible to have a protein deficiency. Right up there with cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and neurological diseases come the following:
This is obviously a major problem, right? I mean we all know somebody who died from one of these dreaded diseases, don't we?
Unfortunately, I don't think enough attention is being given to these diseases. It's almost as if the medical establishment were covering them up. I mean if they weren't covering these diseases up, then wouldn't we be hearing about all the cases of protein deficiency that exists in the purely vegan and plant-eating population?
But if we're ever going to cure our population from the diseases of marasmus, kwashiorkor or cachexia, then we need to be upfront about them. The public needs to know about them, just as we know about cancer and heart disease. After all, nobody wants to die from a protein deficiency.
Like all things of importance though, it will take money to fight this. After all, the best medicine for preventing our country's epidemic of these serious diseases would be to ensure a steak on every plate every day. But that takes a lot of land and a huge amount of water. It also means clearing rainforests in order to grow the feedstock for all those cattle that will be needed to prevent these dreaded diseases. And because animal agriculture is a big contributor to global warming, money will be needed to counter that effect too.
And so that's why today, I'm announcing the formation of the American Marasmus, Kwashiorkor and Cachexia Society. Our purpose will be to endlessly ask for donations so that we can send out more educational materials to help the public understand the importance of these diseases.
So, next time you're visiting your vegan or plant-based friend in the hospital who is dying from one of those three dreaded diseases, please let them know that help is on the way. I intend to see that all three of these diseases are knocked off of the ten biggest causes of death in the United States.
What! You say that none of these three diseases are in the top ten? Or even on the radar screen?
Well, if that's true, then why do all my carnivorous friends worry so much about me and where I get my protein from? I don't get it. I seriously just don't get it.
