Episode XXIII: Vegan vs. Ex-vegan vs. Vegetarian vs. Paleo ft. Saad Khan

By Arielle Friedman, Chris Guida, Kurt David Robinson, and Katy Kelly

Approximately 56 billion animals are slaughtered every year in the U.S. alone. Vegans claim that this practice is nothing more than unnecessary cruelty- harming animals and destroying the environment in the process. But is veganism really the best option for human health, and for the health of the planet? Join us for a rousing discussion between a vegan, an ex-vegan for health reasons, a vegetarian, an ex-vegetarian, and a paleo eater that covers the topic of veganism from many angles. -Is it unethical to kill animals, and why? -Can certain animal products, such as grass-fed beef, actually be positive for the environment and provide a happy life to animals? -Is veganism elitist? -Are 'happy farms' a viable option to feed the world? -Is the vegan diet healthful, or is it rife with potential nutritional pitfalls? Is it even possible to sustain health as a long-term vegan? Featuring special guest, Toronto vegan activist Saad Khan.
