It is interesting that a conservative news source would have a "news" article 
supporting government intervention in a free enterprise ["Legislation 
proposed to end horse slaughter in Illinois," January 19]. 
This law would be the first part in an attack on the meat industry in this 
country. I am sure that the veal industry would be the next target, yet your 
publication, by using the same old lies and misinformation promulgated by our 
opposition, have sided with a groups that will say anything to make a point. 
On the other hand Cavel International, Inc. could produce up to $15 million 
in foreign trade revenue in agricultural industry in a state that needs such 
business. Cavel is a USDA supervised facility recognized by many in the horse 
industry as necessary. In fact, Cavel is supported by the Horsemen's Council of 
Illinois, the Midwest Horse Show Association, the Illinois Standard Breeds 
Association, and others.

have a 4% risk. US vegetarians have cholesterol levels 14% lower than 
meat-eaters; vegans (those who don't consume meat or dairy products) have levels 35% 
lower. JAMA, 1995;274:894
