Yet another example of the fake animal rights movement being about dogmatic ideology, not health.
Soy Margarine. The vegetarian alternative to butter doesn’t have the cholesterol found in its animal product counterparts.
- “Soy margarine” is made with partially hydrogenated soybean oil, which is a form of trans fat. Trans fats have been proven to be so detrimental to health that they were recently banned by the FDA. According to Wikipedia, trans fat has been shown to consistently be associated, in an intake-dependent way, with risk of coronary heart disease, the worldwide leading cause of death
- HSUS pushes the claim that cholesterol causes heart disease. What they don’t want you to know is that 75% of the cholesterol in your bloodstream is actually produced by your liver, and the remaining 25% comes from dietary sources.
In addition, the PDF article which I linked to above also advocates the consumption of known sources of MSG (nutritional yeast, textured vegetable protein) and foods which may be derived from genetically modified soy (tofu, tempeh, soy cheese, soy margarine, soy milk).
Nowhere in the PDF does HSUS advocate seeking out non-GMO foods. In fact, in the “Shopping Suggestions” section, HSUS advocates the purchase of vegetarian foods made by phony “organic” companies which are owned by huge corporations which donated to the campaigns to defeat GMO labelling laws such as Prop 37 (California) and I-522 (State of Washington).
Some of the phony organic companies endorsed by HSUS include:
- Lightlife (owned by ConAgra which donated $1,176,700 to defeat Prop 37)
- Morningstar Farms and Gardenburger (owned by Kellogg’s which donated $790,700 to defeat Prop 37)
- White Wave and Silk (owned by Dean Foods which donated $253,950 to defeat Prop 37)
This is yet more proof that the animal rights establishment – PETA, HSUS – put dogmatic beliefs ahead of health, and it’s more proof that the animal rights movement was created by Monsanto to push GMOs on the masses. How much longer will it be before PETA and HSUS takes a cue from the Center for Consumer Freedom and says anti-GMO activists are racists because being against GMOs is being against the feeding of starving African babies?
