Re: PETA Fail.

Go to whole foods and you can see a lot of fat and lazy vegetarians based on what's in their baskets sometimes.

Light, maybe. It requires muscle mass to weigh anything unless you just have layers of fat. I see a lot of weak skinny fat people there when I do go there ( typically with friends who are dragging me there ).

Re: PETA Fail.

With all the modern information regarding nutrition and exercise I still cannot fathom how many people equate "weighing less" with being healthier. Few things are as unattractive as the flaccid atrophying "beach bod" of a vegan.

Re: PETA Fail.

I am not a fan of PETA nor am I a vegan, but I love the sign. If it made the lady whining about how insensitive it was finally do something about her weight then I applaud the sign.

As for those complaining about PETA's endorsement of a vegan lifestyle, give me a break. Sure, being a vegan may not be the best way but there is no denying that a vegan diet is immensely healthier than that of the average American.

Also, i see nothing wrong with PETA's statement regarding dietary research. At no point does PETA claim that consuming meat has any causative relationship with anything. It says it is "directly linked" but that doesn't necessarily mean it is causative. It may be a fine line but nonetheless I see nothing wrong with it.

No it's not. Just like saying meat eating is healthier. A vegatarian diet with healthy choices is better then the average american diet, but you can eat vegatarian and still eat crap. Fries, cheese pizza, grilled cheese, mac and cheese, fried veggies, cookies, cake, donuts, pudding, pastries, bean burrittos, pita, bread, pasta, etc are all vegatarian (depending on the particular ingredients) and are all crap. Hell there is a vegatarian hot pocket.

Simply replacing a hot dog, processed deli meat, the meatballs in your stouffer's frozen dinner or getting veggie instead of pepporoni pizza doesn't it any healthier.

Sure it is still possible to eat all crap on a vegan diet, but it is unlikely.

Re: PETA Fail.

It's not whether or not you eat meat, it's the food choices. Poor food choices are poor food choices. If someone takes the effort to eat vegan, they will probably be more apt to make good food choices since they are making a conscious about what they eat. But then the difference isn't that they are eating vegan, it's the conscious effort.

Re: PETA Fail.

I have absolutely no respect for an organization who provides both moral and financial support to groups on the FBI's terrorism list. None.
