Vegan (alt.food.vegan) This newsgroup exists to share ideas and issues of concern among vegans. We are always happy to share our recipes- perhaps especially with omnivores who are simply curious- or even better, accomodating a vegan guest for a meal!

Default It's amazing how in a Vegan group someone could hate a Doctor becausehe's a vegan

And cares about Animal rights. Are you published in so many peer
reviewed papers. (Yes, there are popular press articles mixed in.)

I would prefer a doctor that cares about life.

Why? You continue to prove that YOU don't care about unnecessary
death and suffering of animals, killer.

I notice that none of the bigots that say Bernard has no qualifications
in the field ignore this list of peer reviewed articles.

Yes, he's a believer in Animal Rights. I'm more concerned about a Vice
President that shoots caged birds than a doctor, with an adjunct Medical
Teaching Position, that cares about life. There is real research in
professional journals.

I don't agree with everything he stands for but we sure need the research.

Do be published in a peer reviewed journal demonstrates competence in
the field. You can attack the association but not his peer reviewed
journal articles. I have mixed feelings about animal testing. Much of
it is abusive, but I personally think there is value, but many centers
treat animals with abuse. This has been demonstrated repeated.

I also strongly object to much of Peta's tactics.

I disagree strongly with any stands supporting violence. But don't you
want to know about the research on meat on the digestive tract, milk and
osteoporosis, meat and cancer and similar research? There is no doubt
meat has no fiber.

I'm a part time musician and play every year for the American Heart
Association Dinner. They serve roast beef and cheese cake, and look at
me as bizarre for requesting vegetarian alternatives.

This is a Vegan News group. It attracts sick trolls that want to attack
those that choose a life style. I guess I would like to improve my
kill file in netscape. I seek advise.

Yes, eating a healthier meat diet and exercise would improve health
compared to typical amounts. Exercise is paramount regardless of diet.
No arguments. I want aggressive research. He's doing it.
If you want to argue his findings do so. His peers are best equipped to
do so. His articles must pass peer reviews for publication. Most are
on nutrition.

I will not be chased away from a Vegan news group. If there is a
legitimate discussion, against my position I welcome it. I will attempt
to ignore personal attacks.

I happen to choose a physician with a graduate nutritionist degree and
an MD and he was appalled by the lack of nutrition in medical school.

We also know phytochemicals are essential, yet how many doctors are
recommending them?

Default It's amazing how in a Vegan group someone could hate a Doctor because he's a vegan

I don't hate the man. It just seems rather convinient that his opinions
on nutrition
condemn exactly the same foods as his opinions on ethics.

Be that as it may, his views on nutrition are not entirely mainstream
and just happen to mesh perfectly with his ethics.

Does that mean sceptics are unwelcome?

He obviously is inspired. That doesn't negate the integrity of his
work, or make it not worth considering. Just as it has been published
with other world class authors and researchers. Yes, he also writes in
the free press.



He also write to reach in the popular press.

Skepticism is always healthy and valuable.

His work may be worth considering if your career is in nutrition.
As a layman it is harder for me to determine the quality of a study
and it makes more sense to base my nutrition on a variety of sources
that don't give a one-sided account in favour of a diet they believe
people should follow on ethical, rather than health grounds.

I have read various leaflets on nutrition published by AR organisations
and they almost invariably leave the impression that they are more
concerned with persuading people to go vegan than promoting good health
for existing vegans. The UK vegan society website is the only exception
I can think of.

Just as it has been published
with other world class authors and researchers. Yes, he also writes in
the free press.



He also write to reach in the popular press.

This is a vegan news group.



Does that mean sceptics are unwelcome?

Skepticism is always healthy and valuable.


Most but not all of the food I eat is vegan and I am opposed to the
way the majority of animals are farmed in the Western world. For people
without special dietary needs I don't believe it is necessary to
consume any animal produce but it seems to me that many vegans read
AR propoganda rather uncritically.

That's reasonable.

That is because many became convinced, and the literature in support of
their hard felt beliefs becomes almost holy. They look for support for
what they feel is correct. We all need to examine everything we read,
and when basic questions become frightening, it's time to re-evaluate,
re-think one's concept. It may be strengthened, changed, or modified.


For example, the structural analysis arguments, versus evolutionary
development are really interesting. Their is no question that
structurally people developed from a frugarious descendent and much of
the development and adaptation to human were accompanied by both meat
eating, but also farming. If you are interested in history, those are
areas to explore.

Now, if you are interested in the high number of colon cancers, looking
at structural digestive system may provide clues and areas to examine
scientifically.

That does not answer the questions on diet related to health. It does
not answer questions of diet and caring about society. It clearly does
not address people's spiritual tie ins with vegetarianism.

In this case, this is a doctor that is well published in respected peer
reviewed journal. He is exploring some of these areas, he selects these
areas obviously because of his personality. But, clearly, he realizes
the need to build up a scientifically based research in areas of
interest. Would he not publish a paper that contradicted original
hypothesis?

He is inspired by a vegan life style and obviously loves animals. I
would hope that wouldn't effect the integrity of his professional
publications.

It is one thing to write in popular books, how one feels, but one should
not contaminate the research. Research should be subject to critical
review, including analysis of data.

I have no problem with people that are interested in the topic and want
to discuss and learn. However, there are individuals that engage in a
strange anti-social usenet behavior called trolling.

You on the other hand, since you specifically identify yourself, are a
strange bird. It would appear that your highly intelligent,
knowledgeable about nutrition and a wide range of topics. The
intelligence and knowledge is always interesting and attractive.
Sadly, that is tempered with some type of need to hurt and insult.

I have no problem discussing nutrition, vegetarianism or other issues
with people that disagree with me. Heck, my best friend for years was a
right wing DA in NYC who was somewhat to the right of Attila the Hun.
But he engaged in discussion in an honorable manner.

This is the usenet vegan forum and thus a place that vegans might hope
to meet, or people that are interested in the topic could come and
discuss the issues, their joys, their problems as related to this life
style.

A vegan lifestyle is the antithesis of living an inspired life. He
appears to be a slave to it, and to its rigid orthodoxy.

and obviously loves animals.


I disagree that it's obvious he loves animals. He resents that other
people eat them. Like other AR activists, he doesn't care that some
animals live and others die. His primary objection is that humans enjoy
eating them, benefit from testing on them, etc. AR activists don't love
animals so much as they really hate mankind. Their literature is filled
with misanthropy.

I would hope that wouldn't effect the integrity of his professional
publications.


Keep hoping, and the rest of us will rely on our BS detectors. PCRM is
an animal rights organization. It is not a professional organization
despite its name. Their membership is overwhemingly (95%) non-scientific
and entirely pro-AR. PCRM's work is advocacy, not scientific.

I hardly agree with all of Peta's tactics. For example his Holocaust on
a plate with pictures of Jews in camps. I think Peta offends and chases
away many potential friends.

Certain research does make sense. Other's are cruel and unnecessary.

Generally, what I read in the PCRM is appealing. Can you identify
specifics, other than an agenda you disagree with.
