Daily Mail - Vegan Hunt Season Starts

Vegan - Mail Online

Lizzie smiled at her one day, Holly was horrified to see that her top row of teeth were brown and full of cavities

The hunt is on. Despite tripping up over cavity ridden silver toothed, massively obese spotty gasping for breath rounded backed sick meat eating kids almost everywhere you go the hunt is now on for rare examples of sick vegan kids.

After many weeks of searching following a case of vegan rickets in the sun starved outer western isles of Scotland todays Daily Mail has managed to track down a family of goats cheese eating raw food vegans (???????!!!!!???) at the other end of the country in Devon with minor health problems.

Any doubt of neglect is quickly verified when the mother admits it wasn't until she noticed a mouthfull of brown teeth in her children that she decided veganism was to blame.

It seems the biggest blight on the vegan movement is that it attracts far too many nob heads

Yes veganism could save the world and help everyone to be healthier - marvellous as it is it won't brush your teeth and just like a meat based diet of McDonalds it won't provide a balance of nutrients unless you eat a balanced varied diet and you'll still need to visit the dentist regularly.

Vegan Environmental Awards

Bristol Vegan Fayre 2008!!! - Vegan Environmental Awards

Here are the results of the Vegan Awards 2008, presented every year at the Bristol Vegan fayre but voted for by the public.

No huge surprises given the context of the awards - though encouraging to see Booja Booja stuff in a tub ice cream as a winner - this is truly amazing and well worth hassling your local independent health food store to stock it. Delicious and healthy a rare combination in the world of desserts it is a nutritionists dream come true - it tastes like Häagen-Dazs but is raw, organic, free from processed sugar - it's vegäandazs!

The results of 5 months of voting for the World’s best in the vegan circles has been announced,
Benjamin Zephaniah
The Vegan Magazine
Andrew Tyler from Animal Aid
Booja Booja Ice Cream
the Bristol Vegan Fayre

Kentucky Fried Chicken Go Vegan

Kentucky Fried Cruelty

The Good News - Apparently PeTA have negotiated with Kentucky Fried Chicken to sell a Vegan version of KFC nuggets made from soya or wheat protein so that KFC customers can choose a more ethical, environmentally friendly and healthier option if they want to.

Make your own KFC sign at

The Bad News - KFC Vegan Nuggets will so far only be available in Canada!!!!!!!! Contact KFC to ask them to make an ethical, more environmentally friendly, healthier vegan version available in the UK too.

If we are really lucky it will be Redwood's Cheatin Chicken that they use.
