A short pointer towards a suggested read – Joanna Blythman’s concise article here (in the food trade Bible – ‘The Grocer’) ‘Why we should resist the vegan putsch’ on the suggestion that we should eat very little meat from the Eat-Lancet Commission.
Surprisingly and worryingly to me, it seems to have the chemical company, Monsanto, whose weedkiller was almost banned by the EU, amoung its financial supporters.
The nutritionist, Dr Zoe Harcombe even considers it ‘nutritionally deficient’.
It is sad that we need to eat other animals to keep ourselves healthy, but the idea that veganism is the solution, when the overwhelming majority of substitute foods – just take almond milk as an example – rely on pesticides to kill insect predators and seem to be destroying the water table in California, is, to me at least, entirely fanciful.
So perhaps a not so happy Veganuary!
