Sometimes I just need some support, or a break from my #vegan activism, because its hard as a #transvegan. Instagram has some really hateful #transphobia spewing bigots. Hoping my twitter fam can help me feel safe after this #transveganphobic activist called me delusional 😥

One of the commonest charges against a #vegan diet is that it can’t be natural or healthy, because it requires “supplements” of vitamin B12. Here’s why this argument is nonsense.
1. Some of these so-called supplements are normal food items, as natural or unnatural as anything else we eat, such as yeast extract or yeast flakes. They are supplements in the sense that tomato ketchup is a supplement to your fish and chips.
2. Another source is fortified foods, such as fortified oat milk. Aha! Fortified! Gotcha! But how does fortified oat milk differ from the fortified breakfast cereals half the population eats? Why is extra B12 an issue, while extra niacin, riboflavin, folic acid, iron etc are not?

It's so heartwarming to receive messages from new & transitioning vegans, taking the step to make ethical choices for the animals.

Veganism is a lifestyle, & so I wanted to create a thread to help with common, everyday items 💚 #Veganuary #vegan #veganville
1. Cosmetics 💄

Not only will you want to avoid products that have been tested on animals, but you will also want items that don't contain byproducts.
I have found @EthicalElephant to be a wonderful resource. Although its a US site, the brands are global. #beauty #Vegan #Veganuary…

What's our #beef with beef?

Public interest on #climate, #biodiversity & #diet is rightly growing

#Meat is often at the heart of the debate but it's important we look past headlines & unpick the detail


#EatBetterMeat #EatOrganic #BBCOne 👉
Our #meat comes from different #farm systems

When animals are grazed on grass, as in #organic, this can have positive impacts on #climate & #nature. Intensively produced #grain-fed chicken & pigs can have the opposite effect

#EatBetterMeat #EatOrganic 👉
🐄🐖🐔 Intensively farmed animals are almost always fed on #grain & imported #soya

The production of animal feed can exhaust soils and drive #rainforest clearance

This is devastating for the #climate & #biodiversity

Il n’aura échappé à personne que la question des produits phytosanitaires va occuper l’actualité une bonne partie de l’automne. Avec des débats qui échappent souvent à toute rationalité, à toute approche scientifique. Comment en est-on arrivé là ? C’est le #thread du mercredi
Lors des #ControversesEU2019 tenues en juillet dernier à Bergerac autour de l’image de l’agriculture la mission @Agrobiosciences avait invité une table ronde à réfléchir sur deux des sujets qui agitent le jeu médiatique aujourd’hui. Le glyphosate et la viande. #easy
L’idée n’était pas de juger du fond mais bien d’étudier les mécanismes médiatiques qui ont fait de ces deux sujets des points extrêmement clivant dans la société. Il fallait d’abord se poser la question du contexte. Comment en est-on arrivé là ?

🔸 Conspiracy (Truth) Thread🔸
▫1A: Canabalism Agenda

The media, celebrities, scientists and other groups seem to have a push on to normalize humans eating humans.

To combat climate change
(of course)

Remember the Mad Cow Disease outbreak?
The cause was from cows eating their own species. 100% proven
In fact the exact same disease with all the exact same symptoms have been found in humans who consume humans.

Pics 1, 2: @johnpodesta's office.

Is this really the direction humanity is heading?

Here is a great documentary on the canabalism / Mad Cow Disease.

Rare étude qui identifie, dans la cohorte OXFORD-EPIC 🇬🇧 (48 188 participants + suivi de 18 ans) chez les #végétariens #vegan 🥦(/t omnivores) :
↗️ un risque relatif accru de +20% d'AVC (surtout hémorragiques), soit 3 cas/1000 personnes de plus sur 10 ans…
↘️ un risque relatif décru de -13% de cardiopathie coronarienne, soit 10 cas de moins de maladies coronariennes pour 1000 personnes sur 10 ans par rapport aux consommateurs de viande et/ou poisson

Les résultats sont ajustés sur les facteurs sociodémo et le mode de vie
Meat eater = qui consomme au moins de la viande
Fish eater =ne consomme pas de viande mais consomme du poisson
Vegetarian = végétarien (pas de viande ni de poisson) et vegan

L'effet protecteur pourrait être lié à une plus faible teneur en cholestérol LDL avec les régimes végé

I'm making a thread of things/items which can substitute plastic that we use in day to day life. Feel free to mute the thread. Please to share and even add to the list. #ReplacePlastics #EnvironmentFriendly

A little note about the #LessAndBetter meat message - I'm quite well known for calling this out as unhelpful and actually harmful to developing more sustainable farming systems, but it's not *just* because I sell meat, although that has given me an insight into the effect of such
a destructive message. The problem stems mainly from the vague nature of the message - less than what? better than what? what is better? what is 'meat'?- it's not at all clear, if you take greenhouse gas emissions, for example, cows emit methane so they must be bad, right, so
let's eat chicken instead? But hang on, chicken is the most intensively reared meat available, so how can that be 'better'? Well, maybe we first need to work out what we mean by 'meat' and how things have changed. According to FAO Stat, in the half century to the UK has changed

I have been writing on some interesting ‘’#Vegetarian’’ etymologies in Hindi / Urdu and other Indian languages such as Bengali, Gujarati, Nepali, Punjabi, Kannada, Malayalam, Odia, Tamil, Telugu, Tulu etc. for some time. Here is a small thread on it. Enjoy !!

Hard to answer succinctly, but I think the backlash is not about animal rights, but more about a MAN interrupting WOMEN which has historically been the way conversations happen in this country. Add to it that WOC are being interrupted and it’s a recipe to delegitimize a cause. 1/
I think we’d both agree that animal rights is an important topic for many reasons. Unfortunately, in this instance, AR is no longer the topic of discussion. Rather, a man who appears as white on camera, interrupting, silencing, and threatening women of color is the takeaway. 2/
I think the comparison to Bernie is interesting. If you take a look at the video of bernie being interrupted I think two things were going on 1) #BLM had gained enough support to stage a disruption and 2) The optics were in the disruptors’ favor. 3/

Thread : Zoom #santé sur les burgers végétaux 🍔
Le marché des burgers végétariens sans viande est en croissance pour des raisons de bien-être animal, environnementales ou personnelles et également avec les crises sur les produits animaux…
Plusieurs études ont identifié que les régimes végétariens étaient associés entre autre à :
1) une meilleure santé métabolique (moins d’hypertension, moins de cholestérol LDL) (Benatar 2018, Wang 2015, Yokoyama 2014)
2) ↘️ de cancer au global (Dinu 2017)
Cependant, ces grandes études n’ont généralement pas distingué le degré de transformation des produits végétaux dans les régimes végétariens ou vegan. En effet, le blé complet/les lentilles frais sont assez différents d'un produit ultra-transformé comme un burger végétal

Impact of Animal Agriculture

The farm animal production sector is the single largest anthropogenic user of land, contributing to soil degradation, dwindling water supplies, & air pollution.
The animal agriculture sector also encompasses feed grain production which requires substantial water, energy, and chemical inputs, as well as energy expenditures to transport feed, live animals, and animal
products. All of this comes at a substantial cost to the environment.
One of animal agriculture’s greatest environmental impacts is its contribution to global warming and climate change...

Je profite de mon insomnie pour vous parlez de ce petit livret qui fait la promesse de vous guider dans un #Careme2019 #vegan #MillionDollarChallenge
[Spoiler] Les #vegan qui ont commis ce guide se foutent complètement du #careme. Vous pouvez lui donner tout les noms que vous voulez, il y a une seule référence à la bible. Ce n'est pas une citation, c'est une paraphrase qui justifie le veganisme.
Mais en voulant faire croire qu'ils ont lu le livre de la genèse ces braves types font une erreur grave, à défaut d'avoir lu la Bible, les catholiques entendent la Bible à la messe et ils savent que Dieu a rendu l'homme maître des animaux. Pas très très #vegan.

THREAD. What *really* makes people angry about vegans? 1/x #vegan…
2/ This comment, by a bank employee to a customer, is depressingly familiar. It was apparently, sparked by some pro-vegan graffiti that the bank employee had seen. But his reaction was not "people who spray graffiti should be punched in the face", he went straight for all vegans.
3/ The bank employee (let's call him Mr Wankshaft) has held an entire social group, to which he does not belong, responsible for the actions of a single pavement-chalker. The punishment for all vegans? Extreme violence, obviously.

A quick break from #BlackHistoryMonth to talk about the #LunarNewYear - I did a similar search for Chinese representations in Canadian official war photographs, and found 10 results. Here's a little #thread about them -

...This thread will focus on some of the things covered in a little known FB group called:

"Ethiopian Enoch 1 , Flat Fact Square Earth Truth. Ae Pizza Fe Lie ."

This group differs from other #FLATEARTH groups in the following ways:
* Advanced FE information is presented & shit posting is discouraged.
* Promotion of the "round map" or "debate" are forbidden.
* Redundant experiment, observation & recording of data is encouraged.
* The book "1 Enoch" is the main reference text, (Richard Lawrence Translation)
The main work--started by a man named Sam--is focused on Enoch due to Sam having matched what's described in 1 Enoch Ch. 72, 73, etc, with observable reality. Deeper exploration of the Enoch text gives clues to other occulted knowledge about this realm we call "Earth".

👀 how I self-coached, self-trained, & manifested my way to 1st PLACE, my FIRST time as a #vegan bikini athlete 🏆🌱
#plantpowered #powerofself

1. Deciding

I made the decision that I wanted to, was going to, and had already won from the START of my prep.

Nothing ever happens until you make the decision that it will happen in your MIND first.
2. Planning

Having compete only once before, I knew the outline of what I needed to do to get my body to optimal physique.

But since it was my first time competing 100% #vegan, I planned what foods/meals I needed to focus on AHEAD OF TIME.

You only win when you are prepared.

1/ Finally getting around to watching the @joerogan podcast with @drjkahn and @chriskresser. I’ll be tweeting occasionally responses into this thread....
2/ at around 13:30: @chriskresser “Back in the 13th century you had Frances Bacon who said for something to be scientific it has to be independently measurable, and falsifiable, and then accurate and valid.”...
3/ “... If you’re sitting there eating an apple. And I’m watching you do that. I can observe you’re eating the apple, I can measure how much is the apple you eat, and I can confirm or refute that you were eating the apple...”
