The Meat Lobby: Big Business Against Health?

Runtime: 52m 26s | Release date: 2015

In 2015, the WHO listed one of the additives in processed meats as carcinogenic. That same additive was nearly banned in America in the 1970s – until lobbying from the meat industry discredited the scientists. We reveal how, to impede or halt regulations on certain additives, lobbyists have been working in the shadows for decades.

At the heart of this strategy are the scientists who collaborate with the meat industry and who receive generous compensation for studies that promote meat consumption. In conjunction with this, those whose work finds health risks associated with meat are ‘shot down’.

From Brittany to Denmark, through California and Wisconsin, director Sandrine Rigaud conducted a year-long investigation on the tactics of the meat industry.

Thanks FMTV. What a disgrace when companies and governments put profits before people. People have the power to not buy their products and that is the only way to show them we have the power and will not be fooled any longer.

This is such a good film, really hoping FMTV add it soon. And also Forks over Knives - this landmark film really needs to be on FMTV! So many people say that watching it was an important turning point for them.

Thank you to those who worked so hard producing this very informative documentary. Thank you FMTV for sharing it with us. Very sad and angry to hear of the lengths that people in positions of power will go to, in order to prevent the truth from being credited.

Quite disgusting at what lengths these powers at be will do in the name of money and greed !! I am so glad on our beef farm we use only organic liquid fertiliser, make our own haylege for our stock and they only eat our grass. As they say the consumer now wants a story's and need a story of where their meat comes from ......From farm gate to plate .
