    Re: The Sugar Thread

    Nowadays, it's usually called "Evaporated cane juice." I don't know what regulations they have against calling plain old sugar that.

    Re: The Fasting Thread

    A vegan diet may have fewer toxins than the omnivore's diet, but no diet is toxin-free--unless you're a breath-arian, and even that's debatable.

    Exactly; that's why my sister is a vegetarian who eats chicken "if she has to." She's an accountant who works from home, but when she travels it's so catch-as-catch-can, she just goes with the flow.
