Can I say once more I love activists, and especially vegan activists. (OK, and free software activists – many of whom are the same people.) So much passion, compassion and effectiveness.

[T]here are an increasing number of consumers seeking convenient, value-added products they perceive as being healthier alternatives, as well as being better for the environment. And of course, animal activists and vegetarians, in particular, love the fact that such products contain no animal protein.
And here are data showing that meat consumption is declining in the U.S. per capita. Even the meat industries no longer claim it’s simply the recession.
