Agave nectar is horrible for your triglycerides. Honey on the other hand is quite healthy. And harvesting honey sure as shit don't hurt the bees. Quite the contrary, the beekeepers are highly motivated to take care of the bees and make sure they are happy and content.

I use vegan capsules.

How can you do that with prescription meds?

really?? You would prefer the animal to be hit by a bullet, not die, and be chased for the next two kilometers by ankle biting hunting dogs until it dies of blood lose and exhaustion? You would prefer that over animal being knocked out by a stun gun (either through a high powered electric shock or high powered rod to the brain) where it than has its throat slit and dies (which it doesn't feel due to the stunning).

The hunted animal has up until the time of death lived a life of freedom. The farm animal, on the other hand, has lived in enclosures of one sort or another, sometimes in awful conditions.

I 'spose you could line out the meds and snort it. Might get messy with the new gel caps though.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Agave nectar is horrible for your triglycerides. Honey on the other hand is quite healthy.

It was just an example.

Luckily, due to my diet and lifestyle, I am not on any prescription meds. I do take a multivitamin however and that is a vegan cap. If I ever do need to take prescription meds, I would first look to see if there are any vegan ones on the market and if not, then I would take the regular meds. As I said, I am not martyr, just believe in being as vegan as I can.

I know Tongue I was just saying it was an example, not that one should eat or not eat either product.

I would prefer that incompetent hunters not hunt. Black Eagle and OnlineBiker go out with 3 bullets and come back with 3 deer.

One shot.

I am curious about this example. Why would vegans have a problem with honey? The beekeeper harvesting the honey makes sure the bees are taken care of even better than if they were in the wild.
