My favourite part is how they mentioned pescetarians and said they aren't the same as vegetarians <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rockon.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rockon:"><br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/6/67/67a4bbf6_vbattach17757.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/6/67/525x525px-LL-67a4bbf6_vbattach17757.jpeg" style="width:102px;height:525px;"></a>

Overall, it's cute, eyecatching, and some good useful info<br>
but...<br><br>
Perhaps they should have added barnivore.com to the sources list<br><a href="http://www.barnivore.com/products/2316-fosters-australia#" target="_blank">http://www.barnivore.com/products/23...ers-australia#</a> vs <a href="http://www.barnivore.com/products/6019-fosters-uk#" target="_blank">http://www.barnivore.com/products/6019-fosters-uk#</a><br>
I think the infographic would have been better if they simply omitted the part about beer entirely<br><br>
Same with the gelatin. It's just not that important for a simplistic infographic. Use the space to talk about something more important, like how "meat" animals are killed at small fractions of their natural lifespans or how undercover animal cruelty investigators routinely find violations of animal welfare laws at factory farms, feed lots, slaughterhouses, auctions, etc.<br><br>
And why just show fruits and veggies? Why not include legumes and grains?<br><br>
The taco bell comment woul dhave been better if they had given instructions on how to order it: "ask for the bean burrito fresco style"

I agree with this and think the table is, IMO, misleading. "Veg eat only fruit and veggies" is an "argument" I often see used with the intention of belittling vega*ism as in "see how restrictive and boring their diet is".<br><br>
I like the overall infographics though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Legumes, grains, tofu, nuts, seeds, etc. are all mentioned further down on the infographic, as well as popular meat and dairy substitutes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/yes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":yes:">

True <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> But I would have definitely preferred if they could have included everything in the table as well for the "first-impression's sake". What I mean is if we give this to non-veg, I'm afraid all they're (well the most stubborn of them) going to remember is this first table because it kind of drives home again what they already think is true, in their eyes (I'm not sure I'm being clear here... :S).<br><br>
That being said, kudos to them, they did a really good job and I like how they pinpoint things like gelatin and isinglass in beers! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Sure, some things could have been done better, but overall it's really great. I'd like someone to do one specifically about factory farming, just to see how it would turn out because I <3 infographics.

It can't suit all your preferences, guys...<br><br>
I like this image-thing and I think I'll share it on other forums I go on <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I like it overall. I like that they point out things like isinglass and gelatin, so it seems at least kinda gross <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I really like the graphics, the first one especially. It covers the basics in a straightforward, non-offensive way. I wish these things could be put up on subways and stuff, like public service announcements.
