a look at vegetarianism’s and veganism’s rises in popularity
There are some articles making the rounds about a UK study that found many vegetarians secretly eat meat when drunk. Let’s talk about it!

The US essentially pulled the plug on the killing of horses for human consumption a few years ago. Movement in a few states may be bringing it back, though, if Willie Nelson and others can’t persuade Congress to ban it completely. The title above probably makes most of you (vegetarian or not) grimace or say: […]
