Killed by meat? 赤肉によって若死に

Today’s big news has been all over. Eating red meat will shorten your life drastically. I heard about it this morning and well, having been a vegetarian since the age of 11 I wasn’t very surprised – this isn’t exactly new information. However, reading an article right now, I was shocked to see the numbers. Scientists recommend people to eat red meat maximum 2-3 times a week and preferably no processed products. And the percentage that meat eating your risk of getting cancer or other lethal diseases – they were extreme! Well, I guess I’d better keep to my diet. What disappointed me though, as usual, was that the benefit that stopping eating meat has on the environment wasn’t mentioned at all. Well well, it will come I guess. Speaking of the environment, I bought plums today. In the middle of winter, they’re probably imported from somewhere far away. And they tasted like water. Not good for the environment and not so nice. Lesson learned.
今日の大ニュースは何度も聞いた。赤肉を食べると命が大々的に短くなる。でもざあ、十一歳の時からベジタリアンの人として、別にこういう情報は初めてじゃない。ただ、今回の記事(日本語で)を読むと、数字で本当にショックほどびっくりした。科学者によると、赤肉を週に三回食べることを超えないほうがいいし、ソーセージなどの加工肉を一般的に避けたほうがいいんだって。しかも、赤肉を食べるかたの癌やほかの致命的な病気になる可能性百分率が怖いほど高かった!一応、現在のダイエットをやめないほうがいいね。でも、がっかりさせるのは肉を食べない話があったのに、肉生産の環境に影響について何も書いてなかった。じゃあ、そのトピックもいつか大ニュースになるんだろう。環境といえば、今日は梅を買った。個々は冬なのに。絶対どこかの遠くの国から輸入された。水の味しかしなかったし。環境によくない、あまり美味しくなかった。勉強になったね。
