Worlds First Vegan Elementatry School?

#1 Postby EightOneFive » Mon Jun 16, 2014 6:38 pm

Had a pretty lengthy debate with a friend about this on facebook this morning. Appears that James Cameron and his wife and funding the worlds first all-vegan school by 2015.

It's actually still going on shockingly enough....it's basically the same (what I like to call) holy trio debate - Calcium/Protein/Iron

In a nutshell it comes down to them waiving them arms in the air screaming WILL SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN. Started with the whole "They need milk to grow big and strong like the commercials tell us"....Once that was quelled with some talk of calcium and what it actually is and sources they moved to Iron, saying it can't be found readily in vegan diets. Once again a quick Hemi vs Non-Hemi Iron discussion and they quieted down. Finally moved over to Protein and they joked that there wouldn't be any sports teams coming out of this school...that was the easy one...

They've now just brought up the fats in animal vs non-animal sources citing something they read in the latest Time magazine thinking that because we're vegan, we don't eat fats and that somehow animal fats are different from those we find in plant based foods...no, we don't eat gristle off the bone, but ounce for ounce I can find a better source of Omega 3's and 6's then their cod fish oil...
