  1. Hm, I only repeated repeating what I read in a magazine that advertised organically produced dairy products. The article said calves are taken away from their mothers one week after birth. (In contrast to one day in factory farming). These organic cows are slaughtered after about 8 or 9 years. A cow in factory farming lives about 3-5 years. Natural life expectancy for a cow is between 30 -60 years. I looked up milk production and impregantion. What I found says a cow will be impreganted artifically after about 1 year. (Sorry, don't have links atm)
  2. But thats not a problem of being vegan.There are probably enough parents who feed their kids quite wrong, but who are not vegan. Is it possible there might be a ..slight prejudice regarding vegans? Would parents have their kids taken away, for any other kind of malnutrition? What would happen to paents who had an extremely fat baby that was given coca cola and fed burgers? Would they be given a pat on the shoulder and told to supplement something or would their child be taken from them? I get the impression that people are more ready to have a vegan baby taken from its parents, than any other malnourished baby. As for the mother who said she'd rather have her child starve than live on animals.. as it is perfectly prossible to feed a kid strictly vegan , why not tell her what vegan products to use instead of implying she'd have to use animal products ? Its not a problem of vegan diet, its simply a problem of missing information on the part of some vegans.
  3. I think breastfeeding is okay, thats what a mothers milk is for, isn't it? As long as other mothers babies aren't killed for it... (read: calves. To produce milk a cow needs to have given birth. The calf is usually taken away from its mother after 1-7 days. The cow is impregnated again soon after)
  4. I've gone vegan some time ago, after being vegetarian. I'm feeling better and my conscience is much more at ease. As to the argument about children needing meat and mik etc.. thats been properly refuted quite some time ago. There have been several studies (long term too) that showed that children that are brought up vegan do as a rule NOT show any deficiencies. It is however a widely spread prejudice that children do need milk, meat etc. You can go buy soya baby milk in the drugstore next door.. no problem there. The ony instance were bringing up kids would probably be a problem is with a strictly frutarian diet, but I do not know much about that . As a matter of fact vegans and children of vegans are usually more healthy, less overweight, suffer less allergies etc. There is a lot of misinformation going round about vegan diet and protein or vitamin deficiency especially in kids. There is not even proof of B12 deficiency, which is one of the favorite arguments. Good searches: Oxford vegetarian study, China study And while I'm at it: Great vegan cookbooks are by Isa Chandra Moskowitz: Vegan with a vengeance , and Veganomicon *g* As for being intolerant attributed to vegans/vegetarians.. I read an interesing article about that. There was a small study about reactions of omnivores to vegans... vegans are being perceived as intolerant, aggressive even if they are neither... The result of this study was that many omnivores feel that vegans are kind of morally superior, because they succeed in doing what they do.. that is, not support factory farming, being healthier, not being responsible for having plants used as food for animals while in other places people starve etc.. Therefore they feel threatened and are agressive or make fun of vegans. (For anybody who is interested : http://www.sueddeutsche.de/wissen/psycholo...inden-1.1274443 Its in german only, sorry) I noticed that too. The moment You mention You are vegan or vegetarian, the stupid jokes start or they try to persuade You You are wrong and You lack nutrients.. strangely enough, it is vegans who are told they "are on a mission", try to persuade anybody they are wrong etc.. I experience quite the opposite. its the meateaters who obviously feel the need to tell us we are wrong and we simply have to eat meat and milk to prevent factory farms and mega dairies from making money..oops.. I mean.. to prevent ourselves from getting protein and vitamin deficiencies .. ;-). I admit, such behaviour makes me angry and that will probably show if someone starts to make fun of me or tell me, that my diet is unhealthy.. *g* Id like to see tell people that to him: He is a vegan *g*

    Great idea, its necessary to take a stand sometime, rwe have similar problems over here - cant go into detail, because i Really don't know the correct translation for Vorratsdatenspeicherung, probably something like prolonged precautionary datastorage or something like that *g*. Apart from that, I'd really like to have a style like it because it looks very tidy and uncluttered.

  25. None here, alas... I don't know people who would gift me one and i just don't have the time to lurk all day in the tinsel gifting thread, to get an open spot on the list. Nothing decent to trade either, so I'll probably never get one. Are there really tinsel eggs in the AP at times? *g*
