I have always felt vegetables have their place in a diet - that place is called a "side dish".
Now, reviewing the article you posted - wow, some extremely biased claims there.
Claims of starvation (basically 1-10): I love how the article ignores the problems with food distribution. There is enough food being grown, but the
problem is getting it to the people who need it. 3rd world countries are run by regimes that control food distribution - food that is given to the
country for free is often times sold at a huge markup to the actual people who need it.
* We Can Have Enough
Now looking over the rest of it, let's see... Here are my points...
* The writer obviously hasn't done much research on what "organic" means, but does love that buzz word.
* One section talks about food shortages, and another about surplus - inconsistant and damages their own point.
* The PETA-esque statements need to go - that is purely to tug at emotional heart strings.
* There appears to be some significant ignorance on what poisons are in our vegetable supply.
* Several of their statements contradict quite a few studies and appear made up.
* I absolutely love how they ignore the environmental impact of agriculture and just focus on animal husbandry.
