The Center for Science in the Public Interest (cspinet.org) has gone on a pro-veggie offensive. I have subscribed to their popular "Nutrition Action Healthletter" for many years. For the first time that I can recall, they have devoted most of an issue to advocating a plant-based diet. The article in this month's NAH explored the three main pillars of the veg*n diet: personal health, ethics (animal torture), and the environment.<br><br><br><br>
As a vegan, of course I'm happy that they've made this move. However, I question whether their approach is advisable. The main problem is that telling people that they are sinners without laying out a clear path to sainthood accomplishes little (sorry for the religious terminology - this is the Deep South, after all). Going vegan successfully involves a lot more than just eliminating animal foods from one's diet - it involves learning an entirely new way of preparing meals. This takes time and effort.<br><br><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:">

Did they provide any resources for readers to get started? Books, cookbooks, internet sites, etc.? That would be a big help, IMO.<br><br><br><br>
If not, perhaps they should do that in a future issue. Perhaps all they need are a few letters from people to suggest it... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

If that's too complex for you, Fox News is probably showing a Hannity & Colmes marathon. Sean is really good at telling you what to think; that might be more your style....
