To the Editor:
Here are 10 Best Reasons for barbecuing veggie burgers and hot dogs 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 hot dog 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.
