he has a few solid points like the effects of processed carbs, and "unlimited amts of soy", but he really should become more knowledgable on a whole food vegan diet before spouting off about how bad it is for your health. Anyone can be a healthy or unhealthy vegan depending on what they eat....same as the SAD.

Agreed. I've never read such ridiculous claims before, except in Lierre Keith's <i>Vegetarian Myth</i> with her "nutritious" cholesterol. Seriously...<br><br>
And to think that I believed that info about veganism was better in the States.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

The whole broth thing was beyond laughable. "One of the saddest absences"...not if you ask the animals, my dear.

Personally I'd rather drop some mad air biscuits than have heart disease, but that's just my personal choice.<br><br>
Kudos Luvourmother for sounding off in there...

What is this nonsense about plant foods developing transfats and free radicals when cooked with margarine? Even if that were true, not every person on the planet uses a butter alternate for cooking. I fry my food in water, thanks very much.

I am sick to death of people pushing milk and dairy products as something the adult human body needs. We must be a pretty ****ty weakling species if we have to rely on another species' milk production to survive. And everyone has seen the stacks of dead bodies of vegans and dairy-sensitive people laying the streets. We keep dying faster than they can clean us up. If only we had drank the milk of grass fed cows.

I just use water most times instead of oil. I never use margarine for cooking, unless I'm baking and a recipe specifically calls for it.

Well, it seems that it'd be hard to get the desired effect on the food by using something that is prone to making the food soggy.

It's also known as water sauteing. Heat up a pan to quite hot. Add a couple tablespoons of water and quickly add your veggies. The water becomes steam quickly which then cooks the food. That way, the food doesn't even have the time to take on water and get soggy. You get the quick cooking effect of sauteing but without the oil. Hope that helps explain things better.

Tsk, that isn't frying, that's just steaming.

I also sometimes just sautee the food in nothing - if it's a moist food the heat pulls the water out and cooks it. This is good for onions, mushrooms, garlic, that kind of stuff.

Okay, well I don't "fry" much then. Regardless, I don't use margarine to cook with. If I need something besides water, I use a bit of olive oil. Did you agree with the article? Why do I feel criticized on how I cook?

lol. I guess it is steaming and "water sauteing" is just a fancy-dancy way of saying it. BUT, when I think of steaming, I usually (and I think most other ppl too) of using a steam basket over boiling water...so water-frying kind of gives a more visual description. Also, with steam basket way, food tends to take on more water than this method.<br><br>
Edit: AND BACK TO THE TOPIC AT HAND! LOL<br><br>
I only really take issue when the article writer refers to "the vegan diet" as if there were one main kind of diet that all vegans follow!
