Hmm, technically, the babies cannot be vegan if they are breastfed but still....

Off Topic / World's most polluted cities

Health is not only about diet but also other aspects such as where one lives...... However, given that the 2 main toxic components of car-exhaust fumes are also 2 of the 5  heat-derived toxins created by cooking, I imagine we RVAFers are less affected by air-pollution since we have less of a toxin-load and are better able to detox the smaller amounts of toxins that we do get.

Off Topic / UK Animal Rights

I wholly agree with animal rights, not only due to preserving animal-rights, but also due to retaining  high-level  human-health and avoiding human extinction, but the above is suicidal, in the long run.

Off Topic / EU rules halal meat cannot be labelled "organic"

While the above may seem rather uninteresting to RPDers, this is rather important. One of the problems with our food-supply is that many European governments and organisations have forced people to buy halal meats whether they liked it or not, such as in  football stadiums and schools. There was an attempt in the UK to force halal meats to be labelled as such  but David Cameron, a nasty piece of work, prevented this from happening. At least now, if we come across organic-labelled meat in Europe, we can be sure it is not halal.

Off Topic / The other side of the vaccination issue

There have also been a number of reports online about how scarlet fever and other diseases have been reintroduced into the UK after  previously being wiped out. I do generally disagree with vaccinations, having had 1 or 2 past bad experiences with them, but most seem to do fine on them.

Off Topic / Anti-palaeo planned obsolescence
« on: February 20, 2019, 09:03:30 pm »
I have always loathed the tendency for companies to produce goods that they know will only last from 2 to 5 years because they have built in limitations to their gadgets/goods to ensure this. This leads to very severe waste. Well, in the Netherlands, a "Repair-Cafe" movement got started  which encourages people to learn how to repair the devices they buy, and now many other countries have this  as well:-

Science / Another idiotic humanocentric so-called "palaeo" notion debunked

I've had issues before with various people claiming that we humans have innate rights over other species, so that, for example, it does not matter how badly we treat the animals we eat, as we are supposedly  ordained by God etc. to rule over them, because we are somehow  uniquely different. I have shown time and again, that there is no obvious set of  differences between animals and humans, that even plants are extremely complex in their behaviour, that it is very important how we treat animals as the result of sick, poorly-kept animals is always reflected in the poor nutrition of their meats/milks,thus affecting our own health etc.
