How the ethical argument fails veganism

Me being a good or bad person has nothing to do with a statement of fact. I didn't give an opinion about whether Ginny Messina has the credentials to give nutrition advice. I merely linked to her CV because there was speculation about her experience. Looking at her CV, she has indeed published and worked with patients, even if that's not her main focus currently.

If you do want my opinion, yes, I think she's qualified to offer nutrition advice. She has studied how to interpret nutrition studies. Her advice is that a plant-based diet can be very healthy, which is what the majority of registered dieticians say as well. Science works by consensus.

I don't know where you're getting these smoking statistics from. I'm not extremely familiar with studies about cigarette smoke, but even a quick search on pubmed shows a lot of studies of social smoking or occasional smoking. And they all show that even limited smoking or second hand (or third hand)smoking is dangerous.

But that aside, smoking and eating meat are two different activities. A dangerous dose for one can't be compared to a dangerous dose for another.

I don't have a horse in this fight, but I think arguments for or against should be accurate and based on scientific consensus, not on the work of individuals.
