Vegan Fact Check (Part 1)

Davita Trev 11 April 2021 5


Background
share close

 Davita and Trev fact check arguments for and against veganism in this show, related to health, ethics and the environment. We do not support an uncritical adoption of a vegan diet, so that’s why often heard arguments within the vegan movement will be scrutinized too. Some of the arguments we discuss: “It is natural for us to eat animals” – major red flags! What is this ‘appeal to nature’ argument? And how have other social justice movements responded to this ‘nature’ argument? “Veganism cures diseases” or “A vegan diet is more healthy than eating animal flesh”.  Links: Dumping of milk and lobbying for new uses in schools, taco’s and McDonalds: https://www.wsj.com/articles/americas-dairy-farmers-dump-43-million-gallons-of-excess-milk-1476284353 What the health debunking: The Vegan RD (Ginny Messina) https://www.theveganrd.com/2017/07/a-science-based-and-vegan-perspective-on-the-new-what-the-healthdocumentary/ Eat for Health, Australian Dietary guidelines: https://www.eatforhealth.gov.au/sites/default/files/content/n55_australian_dietary_guidelines.pdf Vegan Health.org: https://veganhealth.org/ Book on hormones: Cordelia Fine – Testosteron Rex Stop Black Deaths In Custody – Petition calling on the Prime Minister to meet with families whose loved ones have died in custody for 30th anniversary of Royal Commission: https://www.natsils.org.au/blm/  Seed’s Protect Country Gala: https://www.facebook.com/events/664092760994252 Melbourne Cow Save Activist Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/151521708967534/ Melbourne Pig Save: https://www.facebook.com/MelbournePigSave/
