Why are vegans an object of ridicule?
Anyone who goes against the grain, against the herd, is ridiculed. Thomas Aquinas received death threats for his “radical” ideas about the Catholic Church and Christianity that are now consider vaunted and the work on an incredible mind. The herd mentality now is that the common diet of meat, a starchy carbohydrate. cooked vegetables and maybe a lettuce salad, and a rich desert – is actually healthy when it facts everything on your plate is pretty much just sustenance. Some vegans are militant; they carry signs and march and try to shame meat-eaters. So we have a small battle going on that is a bit of a diversion. I don’t eat cooked animal protein – meat, fish, eggs or dairy – because it is not healthy. Dr. Bob
