Posted on 06/21/2014 2:32:12 PM PDT by JimSEA
Did you know that when you drink water, you are not really being vegetarian?
I didn't either. It turns out that when you drink water, it could have microbes and other small stuff - well, I knew that part. What I did not know is that viruses and bacteria and such were considered animals to vegetarians. So even if you purify water by boiling it and killing the germs, you are still drinking dead animals.
What to do for truly ethical water drinkers? Now you have the solution, the Prestige Lifestraw.
I guess this is real - it's hard to say, I assume most medicinal and health products originating in Asia were created on a dare - but the Prestige LifeStraw says not only will it kill the animals in water, like bacteria, protozoan cysts and viruses, it will then remove them too. No more animals carcasses!

Can always have a brandy. or Jack Daniels.:)
Same with breathing air. The Vegans need to get with the program and stop using air and water.
Birds too. Especially waterfowl.
Even snapping turtles.
Don’t drink water, and don’t drink OJ. OJ will kill you.
Funny they call it “ethical”, yet it’s all according to their own contrived standards of “ethics”.
The water in plant matter could also have “animal” microbes in it. What then? Yeaaargh . . .
Heh heh heh. ;o)
Yep, OJ has killed at least 2 people that I know of.
Yeah, I was thinking that the Jains wouldn’t be okay with that. Poor little Protozoa.
The delivery trucks all drive 30 mph.
If it's fresh veg from Mexico, it's very likely to have microbes in it from 'fecal splashing' in the field.
That's a term they taught us in culinary school.
I wish I had skipped that day of food safety.
Do vegans eat their vegetables alive or do thy humanely kill them first?
Or vegans could gulp hydrogen and oxygen, then swallow a match.
Someone report these murderers to PETA!
Baxter Black, cowboy poet and large animal vet, has a great poem about murdering his vegetable garden.
How about oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit, plums and other fruit whose flesh is just beneath the skin? Have you vegans ever thought about whether an orange feels any pain when it’s skin is torn off? I mean, if you wouldn’t even think about stepping on an ant or swatting flies and mosquitos, then WHY would you ever peel an orange when you don’t know?...WHY???
