Mud Slinging in Slaughter Industry Publications

I stumbled across this opinion piece on the Farm Journal-affiliated AgWeb site this morning. In it, vegetarianism is equated to eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia. As well, those who abstain from eating meat are more or less labeled by the piece's author as being mentally ill and in need of therapy. All this came about as a skewed (and obviously hate-fueled) response to a recent New York Times article about food choices and eating disorders. I'm still a little surprised that they would have printed something so juvenile and ill-informed.

Confirmation bias needs food too.
