    Note: the original has been hijacked by some animal rights activist website, my original comment does not apply! No it is definitely NOT funny!

    For my vegan/activists I have this message:

    "Who fight with a swords, dies of a sword!"

    I didn't see the original. But you know lots of ex low carbers and former SAD eaters could have their own website too.

    Industrial farming is dirty, cruel, dangerous to the environment and everyone's health. However, I personally, have no moral qualms about eating animals and I have to admit that I would eat the family pet if I thought it would bring me abundant good health. I heard a speech in which the speaker claimed that the worst injustice in the world today was our treatment of animals and I was appalled at this statement when you consider all the evil that is going on around the globe involving suffering human beings.

    Was he on the Fuhrman or McDougall diet?
    anon43 replied to heretk's response:
    It is interesting who calls himself a vegetarian. I posted on another group that clarence bass, a 75 year old body builder said in this month's article that he calls himself a vegetarian and eats chicken and fish (I forget if he eats any other animal flesh). So when someone says he is a vegetarian you have to wonder exactly what he is eating. Mr. Bass has said that he is on statins to keep his cholesterol low.

    Probably on Gurdijev's diet.
