I have to admit, it's a pretty amusing headline: "WHO links processed meat to cancer — and vegetarians get smug on Twitter
Yeah, of course they did. After all the jokes that carnivores make about vegetarianism (it translates to "bad hunter," hardy har har
), the meat abstainers were due their day in front of the social media microphone.
But we could argue all day about the best path towards health, be it a paleo diet or vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. You'll find a list of articles and research supporting either side in regards to health and even factors of sustainability (such as organic small farm models improving soil and sequestering carbon, supposedly outweighing methane contributions of livestock).
So no arguing here at this time for my part, but let's give credit to local vegan activist JL Fields
for keeping her message friendly and inclusive.
She's hosting a World Vegan Day Celebration
from 6 to 8 p.m., Friday, Oct. 30 at the Tim Gill Center for Public Media, where she'll be live broadcasting on KCMJ.
Tickets to attend ($5 in advance; $7 at the door) include samples from several local eateries plus entry to win prizes.
