Caryn discusses her brief meeting and conversations with vegan, ecofeminist, activist, scholar and founder of Feminists for Animal Rights, Marti Kheel before she passed in November 2011. Caryn talks about the health expectations involved in eating a healthy vegan diet and, why and what to do when those expectations aren’t achieved, i.e. we are diagnosed with disease. She covers the feedback on the all-white, male panel chosen for the New York Times Magazine’s The Ethicist column Calling All Carnivores
Tell Us Why It’s Ethical to Eat Meat: A Contest
and the brilliant response by Lori Gruen, A. Breeze Harper, and Carol J. Adams; one’s culture’s impact on healthy eating; organic farming; Monsanto providing free “educational materials” to schools; and beautiful sunflowers and their delicious seeds.
