A Plant-Based Diet is Good for Your Heart

This prescription would be a hard for a lot of omnivores, but for a farm-raised, country boy like my dad, it was a pretty tall order. Several years ago my now 59 year old father had a heart attack. It wasn’t a major heart attack, but it has definitely caused him problems. He’s been on medication since it happened, and has regular stress tests to see if the damage to his heart has progressed.

On Fighting for "Animal Rights"

Animal Person

But for the average discussion with the average, dog and cat person, I say stick with the language they use ("I love animals," "I only buy meat that was humanely raised"), and use those opportunities to educate them and point out the inconsistency in their claims. Being featured on ARZone's worldwide Live Guest Chat has reinvigorated my thinking about a couple of topics ( here 's the transcript). And then I read the "OMG!!!!!OED!!!!!LOL!!!!!" OED!!!!!LOL!!!!!"

Will You Check Out Food, Inc.?

Animal Person

If it steers (sorry about the pun) people toward animals raised in places other than factory farms, where they will still be killed, I'm not thrilled. Food, Inc. was at the Delray Beach Film Festival last weekend, about 30 miles south of me. But I wasn't.

On Atheism and Veganism

Animal Person

And atheists who were parented by believers have usually spent time examining the religion they were raised in as well as why we'd believe there is a god at all. For me, atheism and veganism go hand-in-hand. Most of us were born to or adopted by people who eat animals and believe in a god, and that was all a mere accident of birth and/or geography. But something inside us (and perhaps prompted by something outside us) gradually (or quickly) questioned what was occurring.

Newsweek Editor Goes Vegan

Animal Person

There's already a fairly large number of comments that raise the usual topics against vegans and veganism and I didn't see any Animal Person readers in there, though there's no law that says you have to use the same username everywhere so that might not be evidence of anything. Did you see that Newsweek editor David Noonan went vegan (see " I Can't Believe I'm Still a Vegan ")? He clearly needs a bit of encouragement as he finds it "sort of a pain in the ass. And kind of boring, too."
