Thread Name: Folk artists who are vegan
Subject: RE: Folk artists who are vegan
I am a Vegan. Have been for some time. Feel great! I am also a folk artist.

"Always wondered what vegans have got against animals and hill farmers. I mean, if they get their way and everyone becomes vegan, no more cows, sheep, pigs, hens - except in xoos, and aren't they against them as well?"

Mandoleer, to respond to you:

Most Vegans don't care if people are like them because they   recognize the journey it took to get there. Vegans are tolerant of others. They know that it takes a lot of growth to get there and are not judgemental. If some appear to be, I bet they are not the real deal.

There are so many points of view about this issue by doctors, medical professionals and scientists and they all differ. In my own case, it's made my life so much easier and better. Can't speak for any other Vegans and won't attempt to. I am not anorexic and love to eat. I refuse to lecture anyone on the subject and if they ask I will respond with how it affects me and that's all I'm qualified to really say.
