Spain: The bullfighting industry is broke


Bullfighting celebrations are not the second show in this country by a number of spectators, as they claim from the bullfighting sector, but the tenth, behind football, cinema, monuments and sites, museums, current music concerts, and classical music, exhibitions, theater and art galleries.


The bullfighting sector is the show that gets the lowest mark in relation to the interest it arouses among citizens.

Only 8% of Spaniards went to a bullring in 2019, according to the “Survey of Cultural Habits and Practices” in Spain.

The cinema, the second show that brings together the most people after soccer, was attended by 57.8 percent of those surveyed.

It is followed by monuments (49.3%), museums (40.5%), current music concerts (30.1%), art exhibitions (29.8%), theater (24.5%), archaeological sites (21.8%), and classical music concerts (9.4%), which outperform bull shows for the first time in public.

And I mean…Unfortunately, these statistics do not tell us how many Spaniards are against bullfighting.
If one does not attend bullfighting, it does not necessarily mean that he is also against it.

There are also many people who don’t go to the theater, but most of them (at least in Germany) agree that theater should be subsidized with public money.

When the bullfighting was recognized as a national cultural heritage on November 7, 2013, the bull mafia was delighted.
Because that would mean subsidizing taxpayers’ money.
But business has been going bad for years and now is worse in the Corona Krisis.

The bullfighting industry expects a loss of 200 million euros.
Now would be the right time to end the matter once and for all.

Nevertheless, even the left-wing government of PSOE and Podemos, (the latter declared itself to be the enemies of this spectacle), have so far not dared to put an end to the bloody spectacle. Behind it are a strong lobby and powerful industry.

Leading Cardiologist Says Saturated Fat Should Be ‘Off The Menu’ For Causing Heart Disease

The study ‘demonstrated unequivocally that reducing dietary saturated fat lowered the risk of combined CVD events by 21 percent’

Leading cardiologist Joel Kahn, MD has announced saturated fat should be ‘off the menu’ as it causes heart disease.

The medical expert penned an Op-Ed for The Beet titled ‘The Big Fat War is Over’ – following a recent paper published by the Cochrane Library analyzing the relationship between dietary saturated fat and cardiovascular disease.

‘It’s huge’

“The Cochrane Review demonstrated unequivocally that reducing dietary saturated fat lowered the risk of combined CVD events by 21 percent. That may not sound like a lot, but in scientific terms it’s huge,” Kahn wrote.

“Further analysis showed that the greater the reduction in dietary saturated fat, the greater the drop in the risk of CVD events. This was true both for people who had no prior history of heart events, and those who had. In fact the reduction in sat far was even more powerful for those who did have known heart disease.”


Speaking to Klaus Mitchell, Founder of Plant Based News, Kahn discussed how this study could affect future dietary guidelines.

“Now we have ammunition to go to the USDA and ask them can we incorporate [sic] – there are already recommendations that you limit saturated fat in the diet,” he said.

“They have a comment in the current guidelines in the US – ‘as little cholesterol as possible’ – and I believe it’s less than seven percent of the calories in the diet should be from saturated fat.

‘Tighter’ recommendations

“Now with this new big Cochrane database study we need to go back to when there are hearings and an opportunity for appearances at Congress to call for even tighter recommended reductions.

“Because that does translate to school meals and intuitional meals and dollars that are spent in this country. And more beans will be bought and less beef; and more water will be bought and less full-fat dairy; and there’ll be more salads and less cheese because that’s how the dollars are spent based on the guidelines. So we need to get politically active.”
