‘The Vegetarian Myth’

Exposing The Vegetarian Myth

-
Essential reading.

What do you get when you mix a huge dose of recovering vegan with liberalism and some over the top feminism? No, not Roseanne Barr on Atkins. You get The Vegetarian Myth, by Lierre Keith. Flashpoint Press was nice enough to send me a copy of this eye-opening book and although it took me a few months to get through, it has been an enlightening read. In it, Keith combines her own personal experiences with some good hard data to help debunk the vegetarian myth as we know it.

Recently, I’ve been reading more and more news articles about a book called Eating Animals. At first, I thought this was going to be some sort of awesome cookbook or essays about eating some pretty tasty animals. Instead, I found a book that goes against the things that every unvegan stands for. I haven’t read the book, because I don’t think the author or publisher deserves any of my money, but I know enough to place an unvegan ban on the vegan propaganda.

The book is so insidious that it has turned the adorable Natalie Portman into a sudden vegan who compares eating meat with rape. This cannot stand!
