Nice work from the Vegan Society of South Africa

Members of The South African Vegan Society rapped Health24 over the knuckles recently: they say we’ve run misleading stories that suggest vegan diets are unhealthy. Whether one agrees with that or not, we thought they deserved a chance to state their views.

Comments are hardly surprising, lots of them are even comical.

Seemed pretty balanced to me, not too preachy and well researched. Surely JPs thighs would be a better advert than Cheekes bicep though?

"A plant is as much a living organism as a cow...just because it doesn't have cute doe eyes doesn't make it any less living!! It's pathetic...get a life vegans"

I know you all will have heard this a thousand times and are sick to death of it. But W T F?

I don't understand why so many people use this arguement. Even as an omnivore, long before I woke up, I would have considered such statements as idiotic. Damn.
