I was on To­day With Seán O’Rourke last Mon­day,

Irish Daily Mail - - Food And Wine -

talk­ing about ve­g­an­ism. I ex­plained that I’m happy for peo­ple to eat what­ever diet they like pro­vided they don’t ob­ject to mine, but that I’m deeply scep­ti­cal about ve­g­an­ism’s claims to sus­tain­abil­ity. I also pointed out that we have evolved to eat meat and plants – just con­sider our teeth and di­ges­tive sys­tem. I didn’t have time to chal­lenge the claim that a ve­gan diet is com­plete. It isn’t. Ve­gans have to take a vi­ta­min B12 sup­ple­ment.
