Whole Foods is on my do not Patronize list, for anything because they do not want to pay or give their employee's Health Care.

So Suck it Whole Foods.

Everybody I've ever talked to at Whole foods tells me how good it is to work there. I asked because there were so many negative articles.
Now, whether they were lying for their jobs or not is another question.
But they all told me they get a good health care package.
The food is yummy...most of the time. ( they DO tend to get a bit wild with the Rosemary)
I don't buy vitamins there tho

Whole Foods is actually very liberal. The only "conservative" stance they've taken us opposing Obamacare, which if you haven't noticed they aren't alone in among low wage/low skill employers (jobs that don't require special training or education to do).

Animal in Latin means life breath, too bad for people they see them as a thing not a reality of our lives

The Latin word for animal is animal. Life breath is spiraculum vitae.

So what exactly are you going on about?

As an omnivore, I have the greatest respect for vegans. It's a difficult to follow lifestyle choice and I think many people who are vegans are appalled by the way we treat the animals we raise for harvest. It's a sorry mistake for a grocery chain that caters to people who choose to eat, and are willing to pay the outrageous prices Whole Foods charges, for a healthy diet. It's bad business; I suspect the organic produce buyers at Safeway are dancing a jig over this snafu.

You hit that pretty much on the head, Lisa Lockett. The reason I am a vegetarian (with occasional forages into -expensive!- eggs, cottage cheese etc.. from organically and free raised animals) is PRECISELY the reason you state: The way "factory" farming tortures animals is absolutely horrific.

I have commented before that if I was magically granted the proverbial 3 wishes, one of them would be to have that animal-based industry business owners, their workers, the researchers, the stock holders, the regulators and the politicians ALL experience the actual sensations these poor animals go through. Things would change within a day!

One of my proverbial wishes is that only vegetarians go to heaven. That counts me out, but I like to believe that only the truly worthy make it to heaven. Otherwise, humans will muck up heaven just like we've mucked up planet earth and there's no place for animal abuse in heaven.

Is it really going to kill these vegans to taste a bit of chicken. Great guns - what have we turned into when a simple mix up like this can cause such an uproar? Wussies !

Soy allergies would be the real danger in a chicken/soy swap. It's in way too much processed food, and little kids are developing allergies to it hand over fist for some reason. Most people who are allergic to peanuts are also allergic to soy, and little kids often don't know, or their parents don't know, until they have their first scary reaction. My grandson can take trace amounts of soy, the stuff you find everywhere, but he can't actually eat a soy product. He'd need medical attention.

Listening to Dr. Michael Savage, he claims to have written a major book describing how Vegans can or will develope Brain Damage.. He is a well known Nutricionist as I understand..

If you have a problem with his statement ,write to him,not me..I do believe his point in this regard.

I'm not vegan, but in fairness to those who are, you should, as in any argument, provide a link to support your reason for believing this doctor. And then don't dodge responsibility for your opinion by stating that those who disagree need to "write to him" and not you. You made the argument on this thread, and it is disrespectful to essentially say, "this is what I think and you can't respond to me."
06:11 PM on 05/11/2013
Look up Dr.Michael Savage ,a renowned Nutritionist. Then go to Barnes and Noble and buy one of his books. I hope this satisfies your response request..Follow up and let me know if you read his books..Certain people dodge responsibility, Thats not me!!
Read the Book ,Its a matter of believing or not..Thanks for your response.. I'm not criticizing anyone, just making an opinion to the readers...

Whole Foods appears, in a number of ways, to be alienating the very people who are willing to shop at their stores and pay for more for their products. A company as big as Whole Foods can't make errors regarding packaging, and their well-publicized callousness toward their lower level employees must be influencing the shopping decisions of consumers who are concerned about labor issues. I for one, eat mostly organic food but I purchase it at locations other than Whole Foods for these and other reasons.

Buying direct from the farmer is becoming easier. CSA and farmer's markets are becoming more numerous and frequent. We should all support local organic agriculture and the farming community directly with our wages and cut out branding and the the middle corporate persons.

I completely agree with you. My family purchases as many foods as possible from farms and farmer's markets. As far as I am concerned, it is a win-win situation for the farmers and for the consumers.

The employees at every Whole Foods store I've ever been in have excellent attitudes are are really good at what they do.

Whole Foods stock is up 250% over 5 years.

Do some research about their labor problems. Like many large corporations, Whole Foods doesn't provide decent wages and health care for the people you probably deal with on a day-to-day basis when you shop there. Such employees are in the same boat as many others who have low wage jobs in 2013 America. They must appear to be happy campers or else they will end up in even worse situations.

It's in Texas. Isn't chicken considered "vegan" in Texas? Besides, in Texas I'm sure you can put anything you want in your vegan salad...requiring no meat in a "vegan" salad would just be considered more job-killing, big government interference in the free market -- Kinda like prohibiting chemical plants next to schools and hospitals. Go Texas (back to Mexico preferably!)

How rude and culturally insensitive! Still, when it comes to Texas, I'm culturally insensitive myself, so I had to laugh.

There is a group of immature adults who simply cannot stand the fact of veganism.  They do not want to be challenged in any way, and so they lash out like little children.
