We know, we know, you shouldn’t believe everything you read online. Especially about health food.
But recently there have been a number of articles picking holes in alternative lifestyles. We’re concerned that this trend of picking holes in alternative lifestyle choices will be detrimental to the health food movement.

“Yes, this article is about some of the environmental issues associated with vegetable-rich diets within the U.S., but it is not an attack on the ethics-driven dietary choices of people and it shouldn’t be used as such.”
Isn’t it? Social media is great at capturing the essence of an article and ignoring the fine print. The fact that this article
has to highlight that it’s not an attack on the ethics (or health) driven dietary choices suggests that it’s more likely to be taken that way by reactionary twitter users!
