Show me the list of members,

Show me the list of members, dude! I haven't seen one shred of evidence from you. The major donors you speak of are **ethical**, fairly small scale producers of meat, dairy, kombucha, supplements, and the like. We're not talking about Chef Boyardee here. If your argument is that all meat and dairy outfits are evil, therefore the WAPF is evil, I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree. I happen to think animal foods are a very necessary part of the human diet and can be raised and eaten in ways that benefit people and the planet.

Now, you're suggesting that they push animal products because they are sponsored by folks from that industry. Um, no. It's the other way around. Sally Fallon and Mary Enig were writing about the benefits of animal products long before the WAPF was even founded. The sponsors then come to support their ideas and mission to spread this information to more people.

If you "follow the money," you'll see that lipid biochemist Mary Enig, one of Fallon's partners in founding the WAPF, could have made a lot more money if she had just pushed the nutritional mantras of her day. Instead she sacrificed this opportunity and focused on spreading the truth about fats and oils rather than perpetuating lies about cholesterol and saturated fat being bad for you.

Look more into how the WAPF is changing the landscape of food and health freedom in our country and get back to me. If you cannot appreciate the work they do from a libertarian perspective, then you're in the wrong place. I'm telling you, these folks are on our side.
