VEGANS SCORN HONEY FROM ‘OPPRESSED' BEES

By BRAD HUNTER

July 8, 2002 -- Talk about your fruits and nuts!

Radical vegans - who avoid any product that comes from animals - are now buzzing about the evils of honey.

They claim its production uses the labor of oppressed worker bees, according to a Time magazine report on the growing numbers of American vegetarians.

And kiss a carnivore? Never. The survey revealed that 29 percent of committed vegetarians would refuse to kiss someone who just wolfed down a meal containing meat.

The Time/CNN poll showed that 10 million Americans consider themselves vegetarians, while an additional 20 million people have flirted with a meatless diet.

But is it healthier? The jury is still out.

"Vegetarians don't live longer, they just look older," said South Dakota cattle rancher Jody Brown. "If animals weren't meant to be eaten, then why are they made out of meat?"

The argument between meat-eaters and vegetarians is really a matter of apples and oranges. The American Dietetic Association has said that appropriate vegetarian-meal planning can be healthful.

Driving this tofu-fueled revolution are the young.

"Kids today are the first generation to live in a culture where vegetarianism is common, where it is publicly promoted on health and ecological grounds," said Paul Rozin of the University of Pennsylvania.

But low-protein, meatless diets can have a negative impact on bones and cause increased prostate cancer rates, experts warn.

That explains alot from my high school days....there were all closet vegetarians. It all makes sense now.

"oppressed" bee workers :rofl  It figures! The next thing you know we will be arresting people  for stealing bee honey and then there will be a movement for "reparations" for past injustices against bees.  I am surprised that they did not called "slavery" and "racist."

A meatless diet, especially in childhood, means smaller brains. We meat-eaters can figure out the rest...

Bees pollenate the plants and flowers that grow the fruits and vegetables we eat. Perhaps one day, these "radical vegans" will discover that all food comes from living things and the labor of other living things and will therefore cease to eat anything. That will do us all a great favor.
