What you think it would happen if the religious believes of a church would influence the Australian dietary guidelines?
Well, that’s exactly what the Seventh-day Adventist church is doing, bending science to their goal: no meat for anyone.
The Seventh-day Adventist church promotes a vegetarian/vegan diet, and that’s fine, other religions have similar dogmas, like not eating some kind of meat for Muslims and fasting at Ramadan, not eating meat on Fridays for the Catholics, not eating seafood without scales or mixing dairy and meat together for Jews.
The problems start when a religious beliefs is pushed (through Seventh-day Adventist church Food Industry arm supports Sanitarium) and becomes part of the Australian dietary guidelines.
Now, the Seventh-day Adventist Church is fiercely anti-meat, and they have all the rights to believe whatever they want to believe, but the scientific researches that they fund seem not to be without bias, like dr. Georgia Ede MD write in a recent article.
“Lock your doors—saturated fat is on the prowl again… and this time it’s not waiting around until you’re middle-aged to clog your arteries and give you diabetes.”
“It’s coming for your teenagers’ brains. Yes, according to the press release headline for a new study in the peer-reviewed journal Brain, Behavior and Immunity, PTSD is the new fatty fear on the block: “Adolescents who consume a diet high in saturated fats may develop poor stress coping skills, signs of post-traumatic stress disorder as adults.”
