Will I agree that they generate lots of money but Oprah did win against them. We just need to gang up on them. SP has lots of members that support the vegetarian/vegan lifestyle/way of eating.

I've added this to my favorites as it says everything I don't want to forget. And yes, doesn't it make you angry that the government can be manipulated by the wealthy beef industry (not to mention other wealthy industries and groups). But I do believe that being veg helps not only us but the planet too.

The reason is, meat and meat products generate lots of money. So, naturally the government won't directly try to stop people. Same thing for tobacco products, but that's a topic for another forum - the hypocrisy of our government's decisions sometimes.

I found it interesting that the government states that a more vegetarian diet is great for cardio health but doesn't come right out and say that for most or all people a vegetarian diet is the healthiest.

Thanks, Will, every reinforcement just sinks the message deeper into my being and makes the alternatives seem so much more not for me.
