Oppose beef ban in India
Sylvia Karpagam Bangalore, India
In India, the deaths of women due to pregnancy related causes is as much as one plane crash every single day !!
We are also the highest in child malnutrition leading to permanent damage to our young generation. Again this is totally preventable with good nutrition.
The simple solutions are for people to have access to a variety of foods high in iron and other nutrients. With so many deaths in our country, a ban on beef is a death knell for our people who are already struggling with anemia and other nutrition deficiencies.
Beef and liver are cheap and rich sources of many nutrients. How can policy makers and a narrow caste group decide to ban beef without providing any kind of alternative that is as cheap and as easily available?
Please sign my petition for the government not to interfere with people’s eating habits and bringing in policies that are destroying the health of our people.
Let us make sure that we don’t damage the health of millions of children and women by forcing people to give up eating beef.
My petition is already being supported by committed and concerned nutritionists around the world.
