Vegan Fact Check (Part 1)

Vegan Fact Check (Part 1)

Davita and Trev fact check arguments for and against veganism in this show, related to health, ethics and the environment. We do not support an uncritical adoption of a vegan diet, so that's why often heard arguments within the vegan movement will be scrutinized too. Some of the arguments we discuss include: "It's natural for us to eat animals" - major red flags! What is this 'appeal to nature' argument? And how have other social justice movements responded to this 'nature' argument? "Veganism cures diseases" or "A vegan diet is more healthy than eating animal flesh"  Links: Dumping of surplus milk, and lobbying for new uses in schools, taco's, and McDonalds: https://www.wsj.com/articles/americas-dairy-farmers-dump-43-million-gallons-of-excess-milk-1476284353 "What The Health?" debunkings - The Vegan RD (Ginny Messina) and others: https://www.theveganrd.com/2017/07/a-science-based-and-vegan-perspective-on-the-new-what-the-healthdocumentary Eat For Health, Australian Dietary Guidelines - Official statement on vgan diets (p.35): https://www.eatforhealth.gov.au/sites/default/files/content/n55_australian_dietary_guidelines.pdf VeganHealth.org - Evidence-Based Nutrient Recommendations: https://veganhealth.org Book about hormones - Cordelia Fine 'Testosterone Rex': https://www.booktopia.com.au/testosterone-rex-cordelia-fine/book/9781785783180.html  Stop Black Deaths In Custody - Petition calling on the Prime Minister to meet with families whose loved ones have died in custody for the 30th Anniversary of the Royal Commission: https://www.natsils.org.au/blm  Seed's Protect Country Gala: https://www.facebook.com/events/664092760994252  Melbourne Cow Save Activist Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/151521708967534 Melbourne Pig Save: https://www.facebook.com/MelbournePigSave  Music Played: Lara Prokop ‘Teddybear Suicide’: https://open.spotify.com/artist/1vh68V1RrTwBBBdXyAd8fU Regurgitator ‘Strange Human Being’: https://open.spotify.com/album/1SgJ0FwIjzpy8xqjB2XK5q Fur Patrol ‘Into The Sun’: https://open.spotify.com/album/3L5DVDnvbT3r3rARY4TWy2
