that's a good question. I'd actually be consuming the honey (not cuz I like the taste, cuz the taste is actually unpleasant for me), but "selfishly" so that I'm not sneezing all over me, my clothing, my customers, my guests, my daughter, those around me, my friends, my family, my cats, my bed, my food while it's cooking, my steering wheel...
Dare I keep going? Imagine I happen to have enough cold virus in my nose...and I happen to sneeze and the droplet with enough virus in it infects my daughter with a cold. Then she's sick, which gets me enough mutated virus to actually go from being a carrier to being really sick. Then we'll be sick for ages all because of uncontrollable allergy sneezes (not to mention the watery runny nose that drips on everything under my nose).
So, I hate the taste of honey, I wouldn't be eating it saying "yum, this is the greatest stuff ever!"....
LOL...I'd be praying to the goddess that might be that it's actually going to help prevent my allergies for that coming year.
And if it doesn't, well then, I won't eat the raw local honey (or any honey), ever again.
According to Vegan Outreach, there's no determination on that subject. The more it's dwelled on, the less enticing veganism (and even vegetarianism) becomes to an omnivore.
would you prefer to drive people away from veganism or toward veganism?
