Re: Hi, vegetarian nutrition-researcher here!

I am not a nutritionist nor do I have a masters or high degree in nutrition science. I am not a dietitian or a medical specialist. But as of right now, I trust the CDC, USDA, ACC, AHA, and the Department of Health and Human Services over my own judgement as a freelance researcher. Thankyou for the ...

Re: Hi, vegetarian nutrition-researcher here!

I trust the CDC, USDA, ACC, AHA, and the Department of Health and Human Services over my own judgement as a freelance researcher. The reason I don't always trust them is that their recommendations are often based on what they think is health wise realistically attainable for a person rather than wh...

Re: Hi, vegetarian nutrition-researcher here!

Hi there, I'm vegan, for health reasons, and I agree Dr. Gregor is sometimes biased. However, considering the amount of non-vegan (carnivore) nutritionist researchers and dietitians who are completely biased towards meat eating even when the evidence is against them (like when WHO recently acknowled...

Re: This is who I am! (And a shout-out for like-minded rational vegans.)

Oh Mauritius! That makes alot more sense haha!! Yeah I could imagine that would be challangeing, more so than Australia. My son goes to a public school. They can teach religion, but it is a voluntary subject, and that way it's not illegal. They've got someone external from Christian fundamentalist o...

Re: Veganism Refuted

Natural is not necessarily ALWAYS good. There is current research on the high arsenic levels in rice, meaning we should limit consumption. Arsenic is certainly natural, but definitely NOT good for you. In the same way, one can argue that some supplements are not natural, but they are most certainly ...

This is who I am! (And a shout-out for like-minded rational vegans.)

Hi forum peeps! I thought I would introduce myself a bit. I came to this forum in the search for some rational vegan people. I don't mean offence to anyone, but when people think vegan they think crazy hippy that throw red paint at fur, abuse meat eaters and probably don't shower or believe in vacci...

Re: Am I atheist or just non-religious?

Thanks for that thorough answer ArmouredAbolitionist, and thanks for the link to the video! I actually watched all of it, and could relate to it very strongly. Because whenever I mention to religious people that I'm not religious, it seems to baffle them and they want to discuss this issue, which I ...

Am I atheist or just non-religious?

I'd classify myself as a non-religious person without faith, but I'm not interested in discussing it ... ever. It's like discussing Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny or other fairytales. I just don't see the point arguing with people or even discussing with people about the existence or non-existance ...
