Yes, beans are a pretty good source, but we also need to have all the types of protein that our cells require, but our bodies can't make. Soy beans do provide them all, but I don't eat enough soy to get enough complete protein without the cheese, yogurt, and chicken I'm eating now.

jxnchicory in the USA we eat way too much protein, if your worried about protein beans are a great source of protein. look at all the vegan tri-athletes, boxers, and the man rated as the healthiest man in the world. they are all vegan see the documentary forks over knives

In my email box this morning, there was another petition to sign suggested by a different group, but this one was to the Department of Agriculture, also urging them to stop killing wild animals in favor of farm critters.

The leader of my workout class mentioned this morning that she's gone vegan. I'm working on it, but haven't figured out enough good protein sources yet without milk products. Need to do some research.

profits always come first. i wonder how the rancher would feel about using the land if a lot of people went there with there dogs, but i'm sure the horses would not like that either. good luck in your fight

If you want an eye opening account of the wild horse round ups I would highly suggest reading the book. "Wild Horse Annie and the Last of the Mustangs." Although this is about Velma Johnston's fight in the 1950s the round ups haven't become less vicious or self serving since then.

Mr. Jay D'Ewart
Wild Horse and Burro Specialist
Bureau of Land Management
Rock Springs Field Office
280 Highway 181 North
Rock Springs, WY 82901

Dear Mr. D'Ewart:

I urge you to reconsider your planned roundup of the wild horses that live in Wyoming along the I-80 corridor.

By the Bureau of Land Management's own count, these horses' numbers are within appropriate management levels. Your removal plan is driven by private ranching interests that wish to have all the lands' resources for their privately owned cattle. I do not support use of my tax dollars for this purpose! The natural wild animals should not be removed just because of ranchers' interests, especially when we would all be much healthier and reduce medical costs if we all ate much less beef!!

Eradication of wild horse herds should not be considered an acceptable management practice. Alternative management practices, such as use of the fertility drug PZP, should be utilized to maintain the wild horse herds at appropriate levels on their legal native grazing lands.

Ranchers should be made to recognize that their use of public lands is a privilege, not a right, and that their use is contingent on their compliance in working to maintain the natural wildlife on the lands without significantly disturbing it.

Sincerely,
Nancy L. James
Jackson, MI 49203
