Pointing Fingers

Has anyone listened to this? I was like this guy always tries to make vegetarian look bad.

 

Again veganism is not perfect but it is to attempt to make a conscious decision in every day choices in life. We cannot live pure that is impossible nor can it be mentally healthy. We do what we can.

 

There so many things I find wrong with this podcast.

I do agree though the world has a symbiotic relationship and with out it we would run into issues.

 

Listen and comment.

 

Why do meat eating people always make vegetarians or vegans like purists. I guess the guilt of killing gets to them so they need to point fingers.

I was jumping around the cast and at the end she states that you can really only get triptophan from animal, so I looked it up on Wikipedia

 

"Tryptophan is a routine constituent of most protein-based foods or dietary proteins. It is particularly plentiful in chocolate, oats, durians, mangoes, dried dates, milk, yogurt, cottage cheese, red meat, eggs, fish, poultry, sesame, chickpeas, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, spirulina, and peanuts.[15] Despite popular belief to the contrary, the level found in turkey is at a level typical of poultry in general.[16]"

 

So I was done with that.

Geezzzz you write a whole book with your head in the sand.

Yeah ... everything this lady says is a complete sack of shit! she obviously was angry with veganism because she felt deprived and she never bothered to look up her required nutrients. All you have to do is do a little research. I am sure there were books on vegansims 20 years ago when she says she started.

 

Man people are nuts! Yeah ready meat is healthy food!! Saturated fat is good for that is why animals are good to eat. Yeast is alive sorry vegans... that is just nuts!

 

Apparently she never new what a vegan was all about. She I guess thinks that vegans should live in the air and avoid stepping on all bugs and not breath air because we might steal it from another animal... or whatever she may try to say veganism is about. I can't believe people actually read that crap.

At about 20 minutes in she says this:

 

"Plants do amazing things with each other, they communicate using chemicals, but they don't have ears like we do they don't use sound, but they do use chemicals, and they will send each other really incredible messages through their root systems and also through the air. so for instance if a deer is walking through the forest and brushes up against a shrub. They will immediately send out through the air chemical messages. a moving creature just came by and brushed up against one of my branches. You should all know that he's coming, and all of the other plants in the vicinity will stiffen up as much as they can to get ready in case they are also brushed up against."

 

I missed the part about the message that the steer sends off to his friends about the guy brushing up against him with a sharp knife. (she never mentions things like this)

 

The myth resides between her ears.
