Richard Branson hands in his man card to become a fussy eater

Richard Branson has decided that he won’t eat meat anymore.

Richard Branson gave up beef earlier this year.

“More and more people recognise that conventional meat production can have truly devastating environmental impacts,” he wrote in a blog about producing food for future generations as part of World Food Day on Thursday.

“It’s one of the reasons I gave up eating beef earlier this year, and it looks like I am not the only one. Surprisingly, for myself, I haven’t missed it at all.

“If we could get many other people to do the same, we would be healthier, and we would help sustain the beautiful biodiversity we are losing in the rainforests.”

Branson is referring to the increasing demand for meat as the world’s population of  7 billion grows and the impact this has on the environment.   Read more »

Hippy food choices bad for kids – New study

i-was-a-vegan

Hippy food choices, like veganism are bad for kids.

As the popularity of alternative-lifestyle choice ‘veganism’ increases across Europe, officials in Switzerland have expressed concerns about the health implications for children who have the unusual diet forced on them by “idealistic” parents.

In the statement, Swiss officials said: “Vegan food is not recommended for young children. It can cause serious harm”. The lack of vitamin B12, which is seriously deficient in Vegan diets is the main cause of the interjection by federal health officials, who have warned denying children access to animal-derived food at an early age can cause health problems.  Read more »

UN wants us all to turn into vegan hippycrites

I had little respect for the UN to start with, but now any differences we have are irreconcilable

Governments must switch from fossil fuels to nuclear, wind and solar energy to avoid a global warming catastrophe in a move costing about 300 billion ($578 billion) a year, a United Nations report warns today.

The study by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change lays out the pressing need for the world to ditch coal and oil and switch to green energy.

The report is likely to spark a new row over the cost of countering global warming, as climate change sceptics urge governments not to succumb to a green agenda, alleging it would drive up living costs for the rest of the century.

Not just the costs, it is completely batshit insane!  With the Nuclear option off the table, and with New Zealand’s primary income coming from cows, we might as well lock up and move somewhere else.   Read more »

No surprises, always did think vegetarians were miserable pricks

You won’t catch me being a vegetarian anytime soon.

Vegetarians are less healthy than meat-eaters, a controversial study has concluded, despite drinking less, smoking less and being more physically active than their carnivorous counterparts.

A study conducted by the Medical University of Graz in Austria found that the vegetarian diet, as characterised by a low consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, due to a higher intake of fruits, vegetables and whole-grain products, appeared to carry elevated risks of cancer, allergies and mental health problems such as depression and anxiety.

The study used data from the Austrian Health Interview Survey to examine the dietary habits and lifestyle differences between meat-eaters and vegetarians.

The 1320 subjects were matched according to their age, sex, and socioeconomic status and included 330 vegetarians, 330 that ate meat but still a lot of fruits and vegetables, 300 normal eaters but that ate less meat, and 330 on a more meat-heavy diet.  Read more »

Vegetarianism Ruins Marriage

It’s a well known fact that you cannot trust people who do not eat meat.

There is something just very unnatural with any human being denying themselves the taste of a thick juicy cooked piece of animal.  That goes triple for men.  Green things are put on a dinner plate for decoration, eating them is only a last resort.

So witness yesterday’s Hollywood divorce.  Between two people who do not eat meat.

“Martin and Paltrow are known for their love of vegan cuisine and they made international headlines recently when they gave daughter Apple a vegan birthday cake,” PETA said in a statement today.

Being a vegan makes you do stupid things, like feeding your kids a vegan birthday cake.  That’s just child abuse.

And when you break up issuing a consensual couples closure statements such as this

The true cause of heart attacks

Is this satire or more hippy madness?

It is bloody hard to tell if it is satire. I have come to the conclusion that Alecia Simmonds is just another hippy weirdo:

Here are five reasons why feminists should try to eliminate meat:

1. Eating meat is associated with male power in its most vile and repugnant forms.

In a logic that sounds positively mystical, real men, we are told, should be physically strong and virile, which means killing and eating strong animals.

This is why cookbooks aimed at men focus on the barbecue. Anything less might turn them into gay homosexual fops. For instance, the Newtown killer used a rifle manufactured by a company called Bushmaster. Upon purchase, Bushmaster offers you a “man card” that is revoked if you’re caught, among other things, “eating tofu”. Why? Because real men eat meat. Sissies do not.

In rejecting meat, feminists – both women and men – are rejecting a potent symbol of patriarchal power.  Read more »

Stupid Hippies brand themselves to make a point

Vegans are a special kind of stupid hippie…especially these stupid vegans who branded themselves to make a point.

I have no idea what the point is other than red hot metal pressed to your arm hurts like hell. The video was made in Israel in 2012 but now more hippies are joining in the fad.

Thanks to the hippies the poor can no longer afford their staples

The green taliban have foist so-called ‘climate mitigation’ programs upon us all…one of the most dodgy being bio-fuels.

It has achieved nothing other than make the staple crops of the poor unaffordable. Maize and wheat prices have gone through the roof.

Now the flipside of the green taliban coin, vegans and hippies,  are causing problems with another staple in Bolivia and Peru:

Not long ago, quinoa was just an obscure Peruvian grain you could only buy in wholefood shops. We struggled to pronounce it (it’s keen-wa, not qui-no-a), yet it was feted by food lovers as a novel addition to the familiar ranks of couscous and rice. Dieticians clucked over quinoa approvingly because it ticked the low-fat box and fitted in with government healthy eating advice to “base your meals on starchy foods”.

Adventurous eaters liked its slightly bitter taste and the little white curls that formed around the grains. Vegans embraced quinoa as a credibly nutritious substitute for meat. Unusual among grains, quinoa has a high protein content (between 14%-18%), and it contains all those pesky, yet essential, amino acids needed for good health that can prove so elusive to vegetarians who prefer not to pop food supplements.

Sales took off. Quinoa was, in marketing speak, the “miracle grain of the Andes”, a healthy, right-on, ethical addition to the meat avoider’s larder (no dead animals, just a crop that doesn’t feel pain). Consequently, the price shot up – it has tripled since 2006 – with more rarified black, red and “royal” types commanding particularly handsome premiums.

But there is an unpalatable truth to face for those of us with a bag of quinoa in the larder. The appetite of countries such as ours for this grainhas pushed up prices to such an extent that poorer people in Peru and Bolivia, for whom it was once a nourishing staple food, can no longer afford to eat it. Imported junk food is cheaper. In Lima, quinoa now costs more than chicken. Outside the cities, and fuelled by overseas demand, the pressure is on to turn land that once produced a portfolio of diverse crops into quinoa monoculture.

Who Is Hunting’s Sexiest Meat Eater?

Petersen’s Hunting

Sanctimonious Greens are only ever outdone on the sanctimony stakes by vegatarians and vegans. Petersen’s has an idea that will piss them right off:

One thing we can’t stand about vegetarians is how full of themselves they are. Just because they don’t indulge in a cheeseburger or steak, they feel the urge to tell everyone in earshot about it. As such, the notorious attention whores at PETA recently launched its annual online “Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrities” contest, naming a couple of Hollywood celebrities the sexiest vegetarians on the planet in an effort to say, “Hey, these two eat like rabbits! You should too!”

Well, we can play that game too. In an effort to show that even meat eaters can be rich and famous with ridiculously good looks, we’ve rounded up 16 of the sexiest meat-eating hunters on the planet — eight women and eight men — to determine who among them is the sexiest omnivore on Earth. The winners get well, nothing, other than our undying affection and the chance to tell every PETA member where they can shove their celery.
