Howdy! Welcome to the 64th issue of the Mad Cowboy Newsletter.
Direct Link: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Mad_Cowboy/message/85
We've a special treat in this edition: a personal letter from the Big Guy himself: Enjoy!
Reading further, there's the usual Mad Cow Info Round-Up, new studies tying the consumption of eggs to diabetes and meat to pancreatic cancer, a new analysis of the prevalence of corn in our food, and a fine essay by Dr. McDougall about answering the question: "Why do you avoid adding additional oil/fat in your diet?
There's also a disturbing breakdown of what's really in Downey Fabric Softner (hint: it ain't vegan), the debate over elephant's health in zoos, and an range of interesting facts about animals. Moving forward, you'll have access to links to some very interesting (and funny) video and audio, as well as read about a body spray with a rather unique odor.
We also have a very cool article about issues of "soil not oil," cutting greenhouse gases through less meat consumption globally, how Coca-Cola is stoking the 'water wars' with propaganda, and some thoughts about the new USDA Secretary Nomineee, Vilsack. Plus: don't miss the Vegan Recipe from a new fat-free vegan cookbook (Pudgy-Free Holidays) that's available as a PDF via the Internet.
As always, a tip of the hat to our new subscribers: y'all can browse past issues at the Mad Cowboy Newsletter Archives:
...and best wishes for a Happy Vegan Holidaze, keeping warm with family and friends, and a Great New Year!
