Under the Banner of Veganism. Deprivation Diets, Eating Disorders and Orthorexia.

I reblogged this post by Somer at Vedged Out for us today. I so agree with her about deprivation diets. I did not know veganism was linked with eating disorders, did you? My immediate thought–that is a money-motivated effort by the vested interests in some food industries to sabotage healthy eating and creating less need for medical care. Even the term, “orthorexia” sounds just like some made up “disorder” created by psychiatrists in order to find yet one more reason to drug us. Beware — what better way to control a population than via their food.

  1. Interesting to ponder this, Patty. I can’t call us vegans at all any more. (We were once definitively vegans who ate fish–for a period of five years.) Will mostly say we eat a lot of vegan dishes at home, but I’ve ceased to be fundamentalist. *grin*
