How to Win An Argument With a Meat-Eater

In your "Environmental" category, you missed one: The continued survival of the American Mustang. The wild horses are being systematically removed from our wilderness areas because they are "overgrazing" the areas where as many as 3 million cattle graze. (There are less than 25,000 horses left in the wild--WHO'S overgrazing???)

Five Drawbacks to Being a Vegan

You forgot a couple!

Not only do perfect strangers confess to their meat-eating habits, they find it necessary to apologize and sometimes PROMISE they'll do better.

While I appreciate that they are aware that they aren't following the healthiest, most humane lifestyle, I am NOT their priest or their doctor! (I love informing curious people about vegetarianism/veganism if they want to know, but I really don't see why they should feel guilty in my presence!)

The other issue is the omnivores who say, "Oh, I tried being a vegetarian, but I got really sick, so went back to eating meat." (Makes me want to scream!) They don't ever consider the possibilities that 1. They were going to get sick anyway--maybe even MUCH sicker than if they'd been meat-eaters when it happened; or 2. That they weren't following a HEALTHY veg diet. (Twinkies *good riddance* & potato chips are technically vegetarian, but hardly healthy!)

Clever article, ALMOST completely accurate!
