“Making the Connection – Chapter 7″ – a truly remarkable and persuasive insight into veganism brought to us by the Vegan Society and notable poet & author, Benjamin Zephaniah.
Despite hearing about ‘Making the Connection’ last year, I have only just seen this video today.
This was something I wrote a few months ago in response to somebody’s blog that suggested all vegetarians and vegans were “pasty, pale, anaemic and protein-deficient eccentrics, who chose to deliberately deprive themselves of good health”. Obviously, I responded and I like to think I presented an honest and dignified rebuttal, based on fact. I just wanted to share this post with my readers before I delete the document, whilst carrying out my dreaded ‘computer spring clean’.
Having studied nutrition in quite some depth, I can tell you that the idea of vegetarianism or veganism devitalising and prohibiting an individual from living a healthy lifestyle, is utterly ridiculous.
This post could potentially be a little controversial, but nonetheless, I feel the need to publish it…
This was something I wrote last year, but never got round to publishing and has been sitting in my ‘drafts’ folder ever since (like quite a lot of posts actually). To be honest, I was a little nervous about the response it may get, but now that some of the major animal charities have brought light on this matter, it gives me every reason to reinforce the point!
