The past, present and future of eating meat in Finland

Postby penguin » Sun Oct 03, 2010 4:41 pm

Tried to search and didn't find any post about this, but just found this PhD thesis: The past, present and future of eating meat in Finland if anyones interested. Just skimming it through.

This looks like a fine and fun read. Too bad nobody else is interested. I'll read it over but need more time :(
Next time, I'll spend the money on drugs instead.

what do you mean nobody else is interested? Dont get all negative without a reason mate :D

this study actually got into finnish media too and Markus talked about the issue all over :)

he is vegan by the way and former bench press champion (not at the same time unfortunately!)

WTF, i haven't posted in MY OWN log for months!

JP, VF means as much to me as it means to you, which is why I would like to see people give more shit about vegan activism sometimes, and not just shittalking and fannying about!

how do you know what people do when they're not posting here? get off your high horses man, you're not making any sense and you'll hardly convince anyone by having that shitty attitude.

you are mistaking lack of replies as a sign of no care, and guilt tripping about it is not going to help anyway.

More helful would have been "hey this is a really interesting study, thanks for posting" - creates interest etc. But aye, you havent read it yourself either :D

WELL I HAVE!

but actually, bad for me for not posting it here (tut tut joni...) tho i do post a lot of other shit on VF dont i :D

Actually it did, it wound me up to scan through it just now having put it off for a few days.

One of the most stimulating things I've read or seen posted on here (or anywhere, to be honest) about these issues for a very long time. Congratulations to Dr. Vinnari.

If I remember right, he is now on a team and continues to study meat eating.

That's good to hear. Many people are so traumatised by their PhDs that they can't bear to continue with studying in the field.

Fixed. Don't make me post the evidence.
