NY Times: Is Veganism for Everyone?

April 18, 2012

Of just six panelists, one of them is Nina Planck? You’ve got to be kidding me. Her piece is titled, “A Choice with Definite Risks.” Quite a statement from someone who advocates raw milk consumption. She goes on to write:

I believe that babies and children require a better diet.

Simply enraging.

Drew Ramsey’s contribution is titled, “Meat is Brain Food,” a claim invalidated by the quality of his article.

I’m all for an informed debate about veganism, but why not have everyone’s assertions fact-checked by a qualified RD prior to publication so that incompetents like Planck and Ramsey can’t get away with spewing a gigantic dump of FUD?

I guess I’m happy that vegan authors Rip Esselstyn and Brian Patton had their say. But overall, this collection is an unmitigated disaster—one destined to leave countless readers deeply misinformed. Link.
