aka the NotMilk Man
following is a warning to people who might read one of Cohen's
essays, hear him speak, or meet him in person.
20, 2002 -- No matter what reason brings a person to vegetarianism,
ethics play a role. We do it because it's the right thing to do
for our health, our environment, or the animals used for food.
The same ethics
that move you to a plant based diet require you to show honesty
and integrity in the way you act when promoting vegetarianism. You
can't take the easy way out, embracing anyone who supports your
agenda simply because they say they're "on the same team."
integrity -- a respect for truth -- has motivated numerous top vegetarian
and vegan experts, scientists, MDs, authors and activists to arrive
at the same conclusion: Robert Cohen is a fraud.
Cohen, who sometimes
calls himself the "notmilk man," is abusive and dishonest.
He also has a propensity for fabricating scientific data which has
time and again been shown to be not only worthless, but potentially
and background make him highly unsuited to be an advocate for a
dairy-free or vegetarian lifestyle -- or anything else, for that
run numerous articles over time documenting Cohen's unscrupulous
vegetarian advocates have publicly and privately repudiated Cohen
and his tactics.
to Cohen's dishonest diatribes from time to time, we have decided
to create this page so we may direct people to the selected articles
a point of diminishing returns in responding to such a person --
especially one with a very bad "say anything" habit. For
that reason, VegSource will likely not be responding to Cohen's
future nonsense. He's wasted enough of our time.
Articles about Robert Cohen:
hurt "the cause" to expose Cohen's antics to prospective
vegetarians and non-vegetarians?
We believe it's
good for people who are new to the idea to see that vegetarians
respect truth and don't shelter charlatans just because they yell
"for the animals" a few times. And we believe it's good
for them to see that VegSource doesn't promote bad information just
because someone seems on the surface to promote a same/similar agenda.
