The Vegan Blog is a new fascinating, informative, semi-monthly blog about the history, feats and failures, and likely future prospects of the U.S. animal rights movement. It is brought to you by our movement’s eldest statesman – Dr. Alex Hershaft, founding president of FARM – the Farm Animal Rights Movement, as well as the founder of the Great American Meatout, World Day for Farmed Animals, as well as founder and former chair of the Animal Rights National Conference. He has been inducted into both the Animal Rights and the Vegetarian Hall of Fame.
***Also, on the show we have a pop-in visit from Marty Davey, MS, RD talking about “the flaws and inconsistencies of the controversial study reported on major news outlets on October 1st, stating that red meat and processed meat is not as dangerous as previously believed. Experts from the plant-based world have published responses to this. Please look at the websites of Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine, Joel Kahn, MD and T. Colin Campbell, PhD.”
Blast from the past! ~ Another great episode that showcases animal activism….Back in 2015 I interviewed Donny Moss, founder of the online animal rights magazine, Their Turn, and filmmaker of the award-winning 2008 documentary, Blinders, who discussed the carriage horse situation in New York City, saving laboratory chimps released to barren islands and left without food and care, and his own life as an animal activist.

A shoutout to our sponsor, Complement. Developed by vegan dietitian Dr. Pamela Fergusson, and the NoMeat Athlete, Matt Frazier, Complement enables you to get your vitamin B12, vitamin D3, and the essential Omega 3 fatty acids (DHA & EPA) in a totally vegan form that you just spray into your mouth once a day and know that your already great diet now has the full complement of essential nutrients. Click here for more info and to order. Use the code MAINSTREETVEGAN for a 10% discount.
And now the good folks of Complement have a new product: Complement Plus. While everyone agrees that B12, vitamin D3, and the essential Omega 3 fatty acids are nutrients people eating plant-based diets (and a lot of other people besides) should not overlook, there are some other nutrients that it’s also easy to be short on, even with a well-chosen diet. To tackle this, Fergusson and Frazier joined forces with Joel Kahn, MD, and together developed Complement Plus, a supplement in tablet form that includes all the nutrients in Complement spray, along with zinc, iodine, selenium, and vitamin K2. Essential for blood clotting, healthy bones, and heart health, the only plant-food source of vitamin K2 is natto, an obscure, fermented soy food and one that is definitely an acquired taste (and smell). To get Complement Plus at a discount, simply go to www.alpineorganics.co (where you can order regular Complement, as well), but this time your discount code will be MAINSTREETVEGAN+.
In addition, the good people of Complement (their company is Alpine Organics) have now joined forces with Joel Kahn, MD, to create a new product: Complement Plus. These are all-vegan capsules containing everything you’ll find in Complement spray, as well as some other nutrients that your diet could be shy on: iodine, selenium, zinc, and vitamin K-2, the bone-boosting vitamin whose only vegetarian food source is natto, a fermented soy product with a taste and smell that most people do not find appealing. You can go to the same website — www.alpineorganics.co — for both products, and MAINSTREETVEGAN in the discount box will save you money on your purchase of either.
