I’ve been vegan now for 19 years just about. The following image was attached to a tweet. It contains probably the dumbest argument against being vegan I’ve come across in all that time. For a start it doesn’t make sense.
Ok so it’s clearly a comedienne here, trying to be funny, but please try harder. I suppose she’s just trying to be outrageous (racist) to get a few laughs but it’s crap. It did get me thinking about some of the spurious arguments against vegans I’ve heard over the years. So here’s a selection, in no particular order. And I’ve provided some responses to these too.

Putting fruit and vegetables in cooler areas (like the fridge) slows down the respiration process and helps make (most) produce last longer. In warmer temperatures, produce respires at a much faster rate, making the ripening process much faster. Continue reading →
