Here are the Ten Best Reasons for barbecuing veggie burgers and hotdogs this Independence Day, rather than ground-up animal body parts:
• Focusing on traffic and fireworks safety, rather than food safety.
•Giving your eyes a break from reading government food warning labels.
•Not sweating nasty E. coli and Salmonella bugs, if temperature is too low.
•Not sweating cancer-causing compounds, if barbecue temperature is too high.
•Not wondering about what's really in that burger or hotdog you're chewing.
•Giving your body a holiday from saturated fat, cholesterol, and hormones.
•Not sweating the animal cruelty and environmental devastation guilt trips.
•Not having to explain to your kids why we feed Rex and eat Babe.
•Distinguishing your Independence Day menu from your friends and neighbors
•Celebrating a day of independence from the meat industry.
