Individuals within scientific community have taken a decidedly woke worldview for years, from encouraging obesity to discriminating against white individuals. The Lancet becomes the latest entrant into this crusade by repeating PETA talking points and declaring them science.
Breitbart reported Monday that The Lancet published a journal encouraging “ecological equity,” meaning that all life has equal value. Their proposal, “One Health,” advocates shifting the human being from the center of medical health to one where humans are interdependent with animals, plants, and the “wider environment.”
The so-called medical journal argues that this means we must completely change our relationship with animals and proposes adopting a vegan diet as one way to accomplish this. The Lancet says without evidence this will benefit both human and animal health.
The Lancet is essentially arguing that your life has no more value than a pig. Any efforts to better your well-being must take the welfare of the pig into consideration.
Here is the full story from Breitbart:
The once-prestigious UK Lancet medical journal urges a “revolutionary shift of perspective” away from human-centered health care in favor of “ecological equity” attributing equal value to all life.
In its advocacy for “One Health,” the Lancet proposes an integrated, unifying approach that aims to sustainably balance and optimize the health of people, animals, and ecosystems,” asserting that “the health of humans, domestic and wild animals, plants, and the wider environment (including ecosystems) are closely linked and inter-dependent.”
The traditional approach to health care takes “a purely anthropocentric view — that the human being is the centre of medical attention and concern,” the Lancet declares, whereas One Health “places us in an interconnected and interdependent relationship with non-human animals and the environment.”
The revolutionary shift of perspective called for by One Health is based on the more progressive axiom that “all life is equal, and of equal concern,” the journal proposes, which means “addressing pressing health issues at the human–animal–environment interface.”
Such a shift “requires a complete change to our relationship with animals,” the Lancet asserts, which is why the journal recommends transition “from an animal-based diet to a plant-based one, which not only benefits human health, but also animal health and wellbeing.”
In its revolutionary proposal, the Lancet suggests that the life of a human being is not necessarily worth more than the life of any non-human animal.
One Health demands that we take a fundamentally different approach to the natural world, the journal contends, “one in which we are as concerned about the welfare of non-human animals and the environment as we are about humans.”
“In its truest sense, One Health is a call for ecological, not merely health, equity,” it concludes.
This is just another example how true science has been hijacked by individuals who care more about pronouns and political correctness than your personal health. Countless preventable deaths will occur unless actual scientists and doctors retake control.
