Meatless/Mooless Monday
Eat Meat? Go Veg once a week! Already Vegitarian? Go Vegan!
(more about veg-ism)


According to this report from the BBC, smart people become vegetarians. (Read the report carefully; it does NOT say that being a vegetarian makes you smarter!)

Liz O'Neill, of UK's The Vegetarian Society, was quoted as saying, "We've always known that vegetarianism is an intelligent, compassionate choice benefiting animals, people and the environment." Preaching to the choir, Liz!

The report also says, "Vegetarians were more likely to be ... of higher occupational social class and to have higher academic or vocational qualifications than non-vegetarians." That's the good news.

The bad news? "[T]hese differences were not reflected in their annual income, which was similar to that of non-vegetarians."

But hey, I'd rather be cmpassionate and smart than merely rich!
