Q. I have been seeing products in the store that are all vegan including the use of all plant compost rather than animal manures for compost. This makes me wonder about the health of the soil. Do you know would plant compost is just as good as manures?
A. Plant compost would not have enough nitrogen in it. All compost is made with animal manure and vegetation, like hay or straw.
Q. Wondering if your organization has reviewed the science behind the claims in this article. Is the science good or manipulated?
A. It is advertising hype! A lot of money has been invested in these meat substitutes.
Q. How do you respond to this research about TMAO blood levels and animal product eaters and their gut bacteria?
