    Can Americans eat less meat? It’s looking promising

    The “Missing Pathways to 1.5°C” report is part of a wider body of scientific research connecting the dots between eating animals and our rapidly changing climate. Report co-author and College of the Atlantic professor Doreen Stabinsky, Ph.D., told me that climate scientists are not so much frustrated as “really freaked out” by the inaction of policy makers and the general public, who continue to eat animal-based diets.

    Stop Picking On Vegans, You Weirdos

    A few weeks ago, William Sitwell, the editor of Waitrose Food — a monthly magazine published by a British supermarket chain — decided to leave the mag after an email exchange in which he wrote about hunting and killing vegans went viral. Naturally, this led a lot of people to weigh in on veganism. The general consensus on Twitter seemed to be that vegans do, in fact, suck. Like really suck. Like Hoover-manufactured-a-sex-robot levels of sucking. Because now they made some nice British man lose his job. Those non-flesh eating monsters!

    Food critic William Sitwell isn’t the first person to express hatred toward vegans, but he might be the first to lose his job for it. Sitwell stepped down from his job as editor of Waitrose Food, the magazine of a UK supermarket chain, after his email response to a freelance journalist pitching a series on plant-based recipes went public.

    This woman wrote a book about the history of pork - and it made her become a vegan

    “Every vegan seems to have their own lightbulb moment when something clicked and they stopped eating animal products,” says Cambridge University archaeologist Dr Pía Spry-Marqués, who committed to a plant-only diet two years ago as she researched the history of pork. “My son was born three years ago and I was nursing him. People looked at me funny for breastfeeding my child, and yet it was fine to drink lattes with cow’s milk, or eat chocolate spread,” she recalls to The Independent.

    Why everyone should go vegan immediately

    It was announced this week that all slaughterhouses in England will have to install CCTV cameras, in a Government move to try to improve animal welfare on UK farms. As a lover of animals, you’d think I would be thrilled at this news. Instead I can’t help but continue to wonder why on earth we are killing animals in the first place. It shouldn’t be a question of whether or not it’s caught on camera.

    You really can eat vegan as a college student. Here’s how.

    Like many vegans, I am often asked what I eat. The answer: a lot. Vegans only eat foods that come from plants. I don’t eat any animal or animal-derived products: no meat, dairy or eggs. Despite being a college student on a budget, and having limited dorm kitchen supplies, I rarely have trouble figuring out what to eat. You do not have to buy special food to stay healthy as a vegan. Here are some tips I use to maintain my diet. You can find this complete story on our College Town site.

    Why I became a vegan – and why you should, too

    In early October, I surprised my family, friends and colleagues by announcing that I had become a vegan. Up until then, I wasn’t even vegetarian. I loved sausages, I ate chicken several times a week and I couldn’t imagine living without cheese. I have, of course, known for a long time that animal farming is a nasty business. Like everyone, I have seen those distressing pictures of the conditions endured by poultry, cattle and pigs in factory farms.

    'Vegans call me murderer and rapist'

    Veganism has been described as the fastest growing lifestyle movement. For some concern about animal welfare leads them to actively campaign against all forms of the meat industry. But are some of those activists taking it too far? "When you're being called murderers and rapists, that is overstepping the mark, for fairly obvious reasons," says Alison Waugh, a trainee farmer in Northumberland. She has received death threats due to her work and told the Victoria Derbyshire programme other farmers are feeling threatened.

    'There is no kosher meat': the Israelis full of zeal for going vegan

    There’s a wildcard option that some Israeli Jews have started using when they can’t find a restaurant with a kosher certificate: vegan food. Fresh fruits, vegetables and grains are, by most accounts, naturally kosher and as the mixing of dairy and meat is forbidden in Judaism, a safe choice is to eat somewhere that avoids both.

    Why Dismissing Taco Bell’s Vegan Options is Classist

    Sitting down to write an editorial for Scapi always feels like I’m wading into some controversial space to make a point when no one asked. That’s why I was so excited when I ended up on the Chicago Vegans Facebook page and was treated to a manifestation of why I went Vegan and some of my biggest frustrations with the culture. Over the past couple of days, (and I missed the OP,) the group has been in discussion on “how Vegan is Taco Bell really?” For the most part, the people of Chicago have spoken my truth, which is that Taco Bell is the best option in an otherwise barren wasteland of low-cost options.

However, some are still skeptical as to whether swapping out meat and dairy for plants actually does THAT much to help our Earth. They wonder, does following a plant-based diet significantly reduce environmental impact as compared to eating in the traditional, meat-centric American way?
