How ironic that Yoplait kills animals and you saved one yourself who was facing plastic death.

Let's see what other plastic death stories we can find....

Do you have any idea how dairy cows are treated, the conditions in which they live in and their life expectancy? Are you not aware of how the dairy industry propagates the veal industry?

Does anyone see the manic irony in omnivores pointing the finger at corporations for endangering animals? How is it acceptable to unnecessarily harvest and slaughter another sentient being for food but not acceptable kill them inadvertently. What are we saying here? The deaths are acceptable so long as they are deliberate?

Let the police state and camps role on in. Man deserves to be on the receiving end of the nightmarish hell they've imposed on livestock for a change.

I haven't seen this but it's beautifully put together. I love how it opens with the three stages of truth and then highlights how there is no sexism, racism or speciesm in the term 'earthling'.

Threads such as this and threads pertaining to spiritual enlightenment and the sadism of the elite severely perplex me. How can any self-respecting spiritualist kill another sentient being and eat it as a foodstuff? How can any conspiracy theorist cry and moan about the hell that the elite are trying to impose on us when they're imposing a crueler fate on countless other species. As fcuked up as the sociopathic elite are, at least their not planning on vacuum packing our body parts and eating them once they've slaughtered us.

If you want to eat meat then that's just dandy but cut out the pious hypocrisy. Each of you omnivores, as a consumer collective are responsible for the unnecessary deaths of far more animals per annum than Yoplait and their 'killer' pots. Stop pointing the finger at the corporations and take a good long look at yourselves. Self-introspection is your friend.



Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet. ~Albert Einstein


But hey, what did he know?

I don't think anyone - no matter what they say, can really honestly be living a life where they don't consume or use something not made from animals. Not even those precious PETA people. Do you realize how many products come from animal ingredients?

The above poster is absolutely correct. I am a hypocrite, I still eat meat, I wear leather, I am a consumer like the rest of society.

I wish my circumstances allowed me to do more. At this time they do not.

But everyone's circumstances allow for those first steps in making a positive change. I can only change my ingrained from birth consumer ways one step at a time.

I eat less meat than I used to. I buy organic when I can find it. I utilize farmers markets in the summer/season. I try to think about what I consume and I never litter.

I am becoming more aware each day, and am doing what I can to lessen my dependence on these fake frankenfoods, and become more aware of my world.

But you are right, I could probably do more than gripe about things on a website.

I hope this thread had something positive for you, regardless.

This is how it should be........imo (go to 4:15)


We should respect what we consume and not take more than we need.

just understand by chasing some thing called "HEALTHY" you immediately create a polar opposite of "UNHEALTHY"
health is a hoax. just like fitness or dieting.

oh wait. am i healthy? is this healthy? is this food going to make me healthy?
wow what a mindfuk.

you must be unhealthy then for you to think you need to Aquire something such as "better" health.

and to quote


The desire to "eat healthy"(its not REALLY healthy) only arises from the ego because people start doing it to "function better" or "look better" or "feel better".....this all derives from the ego and therefore the mind-consciousness system. I would go towards your natural inclinations with regards to eating and nothing else. It is not natural for one to have a desire to eat lots of fruit, nuts, and vegetables because these foods just don't 'satisfy' like the 'good foods'

Good for you. With any luck you'll make the transition. You're heart is in the right place.

Becoming a vegetarian is not in any way difficult. The occasional cravings are insignificant in comparison to nicotine or sugar cravings whereas the worst-case-scenario consists of intermittent mood-swings for the first month or so and a little malnourishment if you have a lazy diet, like I did.

That's officially the worst piece of advise I've seen in all my time on ATS. You have no idea what you're talking about and shouldn't be imparting this grade of low level trashy quackery to other members. You've completely taken that quote out of context. It's addressing the PSYCHOLOGY of healthy eating and not the PHYSIOLOGICAL NECESSITY.

If you can't make the basic correlation between diet and health then I don't even know where to begin in assisting you. Go to the CDC and research the heart disease and diabetes statistics or just whip out a rudimentary biology book for crying out loud.

Fair point and thanks for the handy link to that list.

Raw vegans (raw fruit and vegetables only) are generally aware of and avoid these products.

I'll admit that I'm not 100% sure on the cosmetic products I use nor does footwear reflect my dietary convictions. Conclusion? I'm a hypocrite too but much less of a hypocrite than you soulless omnivores (just teasing!
)

Very informative research. Thank you OP! I don't eat yogurt, but my wife does, and this will be added to our "do not touch" list. Will also avoid buying their yogurt bars as well now..

Dear Vintage:

Your ice cream sounds 1000% more healthy and natural than store bought. I'm going to try it! Thanks for the idea and the recipe.

Agreed. I had no idea a similar texture was achievable from raw foods. Mmm.

Fair enough.

In the EU it is illegal to introduce unnatural substances into the human food chain (steroids and antibiotics are exempt as they are deemed fit for human consumption). This was formed after the CJD crisis after it came to light that farmers were feeding their livestock offal, which is unnatural for cows to eat. Being from Ireland, you should know how strict the EU are on food standards, hell, they even tried to ban bendy bananas!


Feed additives are products used in animal nutrition for purposes of improving the quality of feed and the quality of food from animal origin, or to improve the animals’ performance and health, e.g. providing enhanced digestibility of the feed materials. Feed additives may not be put on the market unless authorisation has been given following a scientific evaluation demonstrating that the additive has no harmful effects, on human and animal health and on the environment.

My medical condition is chronic acid reflux, caused through a damaged sphincter muscle at the top of the stomach, which is controlled through medication called proton pump inhibitors, which disallow any ant-acids while taking the drug. Unfortunately, the drugs are not always 100% effective, so milk is the only way to neutralise the acid. It's not specifically required that I drink milk, but I'd be in a lot of pain if I didn't.

As for where I'm from, try reading my location on my avatar, or even my signature. It's pretty bloody obvious.

Oh I'm always laughing to myself when I'm out shopping and you're right, it is the crazy EU warning signs that are to blame. They think you have to be warned about everything! Here's a list of them:

Stupid warning labels

This has to be my favourite though:



On a Swedish chainsaw:
Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals.


I went into ASDA (Walmart for our US friends) the other day and noticed that the sign above the women's magazine counter said "women's Monthlies". I was literally crying with laughter. They really don't think these things through.

Also, I was in the local Pharmacy and one of the doors had "Therapist" written on it, unfortunately, the spacing of the letters was poor, so it actually read "The rapist".

That's because the UK doesn't import meat or dairy from the US. The Yoplait yoghurt we have would say "Made in the EU" or someting like that. Probably in France, in the original factory.

Muller yoghurts are nice, but way too much sugar in them. Stick with natural and fruit.

So, exercising and eating the right foods is a hoax? WTF?!

So what you're saying is that if I change my current lifestyle of going to the gym 3 times a week and making sure I eat primarily low fat, low sugar foods, I will feels as good as if I stop exercising and eat McDonalds every day?

Hmm, you either have a fantastic metabolism or you're not very healthy yourself!

It's all about balance and the attitude of "all things in moderation".

1 star and flag for the op.

I am anti Yoplait products mainly due to the aspartame infectious toxin.

Anytime my house gets yogurt it's always La Yogurt as it is aspartame free.

I don't care if you are in the store an additional 20 minutes to a half hour doing nothing but reading labels for content then it is not time wasted but time well spent. When it comes to your health, your families health, any time spent will always be worth it. If you don't spend that extra minute or so reading that label if you get sick as a result you really have no right to complain when things go sour.

This crud about kosher products every single holy faith has that totally incorrect, s long as it's classified as one of "God's Creatures" it cannot be consumed by anyone during and fasting or reflection periods.

Sorry, I can neither intellectually nor honestly accept your misplaced conveyance of the food industry. It's an industry. The metric is monetary profit rather than the integrity of your health. The promiscuity of the nomenclature is the problem.

There exists a critical ambiguity and disparity when it comes to the food industries definition of that which is natural and that which is unnatural. How frequently do you review the descending list of ingredients affixed to most consumer foodstuffs? How can you testify that international regulations imposed on the food industry are protecting us? You really need to take an hour or so to research just how 'natural' some of these ingredients truly are. Surely you've heard about Aspartame being renamed as Aminosweet so that it can be declared as a NATURAL product. How could that not concern you? This example alone is indicative of how interchangeable and flippant the conceptual definitions of 'natural' and 'unnatural' actually are. But wait, the food industries given you their word so it must be empirical and absolute.

It goes both ways. Codex Alimentarius, for goodness sake is conversely telling us that natural substances are unnatural. Since when have vitamins been primarily viewed as toxins?

You can persist to accept the food industries judgment at face value. I prefer to rely on innate common sense when it comes to judiciously appraising the viability and safety of the compounds introduced into our foodstuffs. At the risk of sounding facetious your submission that these lads aren't introducing unnatural compounds into our foodstuffs is tantamount to you believing that the universe is geocentric simply because the food industry gave you there ever reliable word.

If you do not have the capacity to grasp how meat products shorten our life expectancy by up to 15 years, how dairy is the most unnatural and poisonous food substance of them all, how chlorinated water is carcinogenic or how fluoridated water passively lobotomizes us then you're not going to be able to elevate yourself to a requisite plateau objective enough to realize your being blatantly deceived.

We're talking about the same caliber of folk that introduce hydrofluorosilic acid into our drinking water and tell us that it's safe despite their being no corroborative evidence to support the supposed dental benefits of consuming nominal amounts of the compound. But hey, let's take them at their word, they know best. The fact that the earliest chronological implementation of fluoridated water transpired in Nazi concentration to render the internments sterile and docile should just be ignored, right? As outlandish as that may sound it's surprisingly true. Check it out.

Apologies for missing your location situated beneath your avatar. Evidently, rotating my head five degrees to the left is too much effort.
Ha! Just noticed the signature.

Thanks for educating me on your condition. I never really considered there to be a medical application of milk beyond nursing.
