Farmer Calls Veganism A Cult

A farmer has called veganism a ‘cult’ and labelled it as ‘controlled malnutrition’ at a farming event.

Patrick Kent, President of the Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers’ Association spoke at a panel during the event, according to Agriland.

Kent was asked whether he thinks that veganism poses a threat to the future of farming. He replied: “I think we have a massive opportunity to address some of these issues. Veganism now is very, very financed and it is kind of a cult movement.

Kent continued: “A tomato in the 1940s had apparently as much nutrition as eight tomatoes today. So people are eating a lot more calories, but they’re actually malnourished.

“I think it needs to be tackled for what it is; it’s controlled malnutrition.

“People are eating less nutrient-dense foods than ever before.”

It has also been reported that he responded to alleged abuses inflicted on Irish cattle in Turkish slaughterhouses by blaming ‘some form of vegan plot’.
