Hayek Hospital in Beirut, Lebanon: the first vegan Hospital-super!

“Patients will no longer wake up from surgery to be greeted with ham, cheese, milk, and eggs – the very foods that may have contributed to their health problems in the first place”

On March 1, Hayek Hospital in Beirut, Lebanon became the first hospital in the world to serve only vegan meals.

The menu change came after a transition period where Hayek offered patients a choice between animal-based and vegan meals, along with information about the health benefits of choosing plant-based foods versus the dangers of consuming animal products.

The hospital announced the switch on Instagram with a poignant post.

“Our patients will no longer wake up from surgery to be greeted with ham, cheese, milk, and eggs … the very food [s] that may have contributed to their health problems in the first place,” Hayek Hospital posted.

The hospital went on to address “the elephant in the room” citing examples of why animal products do not belong on hospital menus.

“When the World Health Organization classifies processed meat as Group 1A carcinogenic (causes cancer) – [the] same group as tobacco — and red meat as Group 2A carcinogenic, then serving meat in a hospital is like serving cigarettes in a hospital,” the hospital continued, pointing out that according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), three out of four emerging infectious diseases come from animals.

“When adopting a plant-based diet has been scientifically proven not only to stop the evolution of certain diseases but it can also reverse them,” the hospital posted.
“We then have the moral responsibility to act upon and align our beliefs with our actions”.

Taking the courage to look at the elephant in the eye. “

Instead of animal products, Hayek Hospital is now offering a variety of plant-based meals such as a fajita sandwich, vegan burgers, pizzas, and croissants, along with vegan versions of traditional Middle Eastern dishes such as shawarma platters, shish Barak, and labneh sandwiches.

And I mean…The fact that the Hayek Clinic in Lebanon is apparently the first hospital in the world that only wants to offer vegan catering sounds like an exciting – but actually overdue – development to us!

After all, the WHO made its warnings on processed and red meat known to the public many years ago.
Several other international organizations have been warning of the consequences of meat consumption for many decades.

Last year, a survey showed a staggering 83 percent of patients favor hospitals banning processed meat to ‘reduce cancer risk’.

The data came from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) who surveyed 200 patients in two Washington D.C hospitals.

It also found that 69 percent of patients feel it is ‘not important’ that hospitals offer bacon or sausage.

It’s time to create a healthier food environment.

A wonderful initiative, we are very happy and congratulate the Hayek Hospital in Beirut!

My best regards to all, Venus

Germany: murder in the Tönnies slaughterhouse-where is the joke?

A fatal dispute has broken out in Germany’s largest slaughterhouse.

A 34-year-old man subsequently died in the hospital. The background is currently still open.

In a dispute between workers at the Tönnies slaughterhouse in North Rhine-Westphalia, a man was killed in front of numerous colleagues on Friday.

According to a joint statement from the police and the public prosecutor’s office, a 35-year-old man injured his colleague (34) with a sharp object at around 7 a.m.

The younger one died in the hospital.
The urgent suspect was arrested. According to the police, the body should be autopsied in the afternoon.

The police set up a homicide commission under the name “Loop”.

A police spokesman did not provide any information about the background to the crime in Rheda-Wiedenbrück (Gütersloh district) with reference to the ongoing investigation.
It also remained open whether the suspect commented on the allegations.

According to Tönnies company spokesman André Vielstädte, the employee “died despite immediate first aid measures in the hospital”.

The incident occurred in a dismantling area (!!!)
Production had to be interrupted for hours in part of the operation for the criminal police to secure evidence.

According to a statement from Tönnies, the employee attacked his colleague with a knife. The police speak of a sharp object.

Managing director André Vielstädte promised the police and the public prosecutor’s office “full support” in the investigation.

Works council member Mustafa Kuyucu was shocked, according to the announcement: “We are sad and stunned by the act. Our condolences go to the family, friends, and colleagues of our employees.

We guarantee the relatives, colleagues, and friends of the victim all the help they need. “

Emergency chaplains took care of the eyewitnesses. The company has set up a hotline that employees can contact.

And I mean…Murder in the slaughterhouse!!!

So far so good, but where can we find the unusual?
It is normal for the killing factory to be brutally murdered every second in this animal industry system.
The only special thing about it: a human-animal was killed, not pigs or cattle, as is usual.

The sick system is now exposed; The murder assembly line is out of order for a few days, because someone is murdered there!
What gallows humor!

Thousands of living beings / Earthlings die every day in the cruelest way, and when a person is hit and suddenly the outcry in all media is great: Justice for the victim!

Sure, these people are victims of the system/society too.
They are exploited and put under pressure here – all power over accommodation, wages, work, and working hours lies in the hands of the manufacturer.

But they are also used to the most brutal violence against other creatures (cattle, pigs).
This case clearly shows who works in this profession. Or how one becomes when he works there.

Whoever cuts the throat of a cattle with a knife and remains deaf when the animal roars, who can slaughter the screaming goat in cold blood – how far is such a person from crime?

Now the alleged murderer is sentenced. When will we finally convict animal killers?
