Taxing meat could make us thinner

Taxing meat could make us thinner | Talking Politics - Yahoo!

 Actually I don't think we need to tax meat......

If we just rediverted the £billion subsidies dished out to the Meat , Dairy and Fishing Industries that would do the trick. We should be investing those £Billion subsidies in promoting and supporting products and industries that make a positive, sustainable difference to people's health and the Planet. Supporting industries that make the situation worse is nothing short of either ignorance or political cowardice

Quorn Launches First Vegan Product - MarketWatch

Quorn Launches First Vegan Product - MarketWatch

That was the year that was! In 2011 we saw President Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Russell Brand even bat munching Ozzie Osbourne coming out of the closet to promote vegan diets.

Now even "we can do it any other way" Quorn, who have always maintained that nothing apart from egg could survive their manufacturing process, have now come out with a vegan burger in the USA - Hip Horray!!!!

They promised me Vegan camembert 10 years ago. Then they sold the company and I got diddly squat. Lets hope vegan camembert is back on the Quorn Corp NPD list along with a host of other innovative Dairy Free products such as a healthy essential fat rich, high protein Vegan Ice cream that'll give those salmon munchers at Tofutti a run for their sugar coated money.

Anyway Hoorah! Merry Christmas America! Enjoy your 2012 BBQ season and keep your vegan fingers crossed for us poor supermarket neglected Plantarians here in Blighty.
