15 Vegan Celebrities Who've Given Up Animal Products For A Healthier Lifestyle

“Now that I re-read it, you are so right. You must be very smart...... PPFFFTT!! But seriously, how can anyone defend blanket statements about nutrition when they exclude something that many people use with more benefit than harm. Quality is just as much an issue as category in the final analysis. I can show you beautiful vegetables with almost no digestible value but compared to equal amounts of pastured beef liver, even the best organic vegetables are exceeded in nutritional value by orders of magnitude. I don't eat factory meat. I don't think anyone else should either, but the meat is bad chant is old and frankly mostly falling on deaf ears. You are much more likely to get someone to eat healthy if you include all the information rather than cherry picking it to save people from themselves. I simply don't like being lied to, especially when it comes to decisions about my own health. I also believe (notice the distinction) other people feel the same way.”

“Sorry, do you or do you not think feeding cows plant matter and their resulting flatulence causes global warming? If you ascribe to the positive, then you think bacteria are to blame. The bottom of the food chain will do its job regardless of what animal it passes through. Even your poop will eventually be enterically fermented to produce CO2 and Methane by these critters.”

“Bring it on! Just more reasons to buy direct from your local farmer. We are starting to see local farm options in our supermarket and they get sold out way faster than the industrial junk. Go right on ahead and keep racing your way to the bottom and DEFINE the difference between humanely raised, appropriately fed, pastured meats and eggs and the pharmaceutically enhanced factory versions.”

“So you want we should go out and kill all the bacteria?(said like a mob hit man) Interesting solution... Then what? We all die because nutrients aren't returned to the soil.

“You miss the point that if the cows rumen didn't turn it into CO2 and methane, the natural decomposition of organic matter would happen anyway. The tundra has huge amounts of decomposing organic matter that will release thousands of years worth of gas when the permafrost melts. That's what you SHOULD be worried about!”

“Last time I checked anthropogenic global warming was a leading contributor to the scenario you are concerned about, and *that* is why increasing cattle numbers is not a solution--whether they are grazing or not.”

“But if left to decompose, the vegetation still produces CO2 And methane regardless of whether it runs through a cow. Why not let the carbon return to the soil in the form of cow plop. As long as pastures are rotated, it is a cycle that is well established and makes life possible on this big rock. Everything gets eaten by something; the problems arise when we take shortcuts. There is no such thing as a free lunch in chemistry and physics.”

“Straight from the Vegan propaganda files to the public. These arguments generally only apply to Industrialized cattle operations. First off, cattle aren't supposed to eat grain. When they do, viola! Lots of methane! The part about them using all the arable land is only selectively true depending on the model used to feed them and what definition of arable land you use. The idea that biomass releases more or less CO2 either inside or outside of a human or cow is ludicrous.”

“As far as CO2 is concerned, cattle are considered carbon-neutral under IPCC standards, meaning that they do not cause any net addition to the carbon-cycle, a fact regarding which the author of this joke-y and ill-informed article appears to be blissfully unaware.”

“So-called grass-fed cows are allowed to eat cereal crops (grasses) while in the vegetative state. Grass-fed cows still produce methane.”

Ty2010 on Nov 15, 2013 at 09:17:12

“To complicate matters, there are fewer grazing cattle due to pastures being plowed up to supply ethanol, so they're eating grain and releasing more methane which is 20x more potent than CO2.”

“And of course you miss the point that outlawing things that can hurt you is pointless. You may not like it, but that doesn't mean you're right. Hunting is a traditional way of collecting natures bounty. It's something predators do on occasion. Now go eat your bean curd and stay on the porch.”
