Re: The real Veganism thread.

I'm not sure about you living next door, but down the street would be ok. Then we could go out for a drink and a laugh big_smile

i can confirm 100% and more.

example from finland:
everybody likes a foreigner.
they can polish their english skills and generally show that they are ... what's the word ... international.
but when that foreigner starts speaking finnish and just wants to be one of you, there isn't much acceptance.

also your own, personal experience is different: when you're exhilarated from holiday feeling (probably during spring/summer), visiting any place might be much nicer than when you start going to work there every day...

PS:
Finland used to be so poor that a lot of traditional food is vegetarian, even vegan. Do you like mämmi?

^Well, in this context, very few things are bad, as long as they are not forced to other people.

Re: The real Veganism thread.

Just read an article documenting how many of the major YouTube vegan "influencers" have either confessed to or been outed as eating fish and other non-vegan foods while still claiming to be vegan. The most common reason for doing so was to alleviate health complications that arose from a vegan diet...

Re: The real Veganism thread.

^Oh ... I have 'next door' example of how important is to plan you food intake if one became vegetarian: a friend's kidteenager  suddenly decided, unprepared, it will be vegetarian. As there was missing stuff in its vegetarian diet (mostly some sort of energy), the teenager became very very dependent on sweets (chocolate, mostly) which in turn made the kid a bit fater, and more importantly the diet caused a serious liver deterioration.

After several visits to doctor, they got the advice: start to eat all the food. And, liver as liver, as soon as meat were reintroduced in diet, it soon regenerated.

This story is not against vegetarianism ... it is against uninformed vegetarianism: one has carefully plan its meatless diet. And vegetarianism is not for small kids, and positively definitely not for cats  big_smile

Re: The real Veganism thread.

What a strange thread.

I've been vegetarian for 31 years. You can definitely be an unhealthy vegetarian.

I have B12 deficiency, but that is because I have coeliac disease and also Pernicious anaemia too.

This is OT, things do get strange here. On Wednesdays we do a Lynch/Fellini film comparison thread. Well, not yet.

But we will.

Re: The real Veganism thread.

^ They might as well name Round 2 of Covid-19 "I Told You I'd Be Back" and have Arnold narrate the commercial.

"The Sarcastic Flu (starring Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow)."

"The Double-Entendre Lung Infection (One For Each Lung)."

"Anemia Indemnity (How Goldman Sachs Stole My Blood)."

Gilbert Gottfried's agent is on the phone right now pitching "The Sarcastic Flu". He's pitching the parrot character again. "It's a pirate thing!", he's saying.

Well they had to call it something and I guess they thought Lovely Anaemia wasn't effective enough.

Re: The real Veganism thread.

I guess it's to differentiate from other sorts of anemia.
So your stomach cannot absorb B12? How do you take it?

Sorry about hhh. He gets like that sometimes.

No need to apologise, it was humorous. Everywhere needs to have a class clown smile

I have B12 injections every 3 months.
