  • Response to Charles Marlowe (VeganCheetah) about Vegan Drama

    Charles Marlowe (TheVeganCheetah) has published a video about the termination of a youtube channel of Martin Louis and his reflections on his own content. The description of the video: 

    Earlier this week Marin Louis lost his YouTube channel. In this video I am reaching out to him, and showing support for his channel going back online. This is another reason why we need to move in a new direction this year with my channel. 

    My comment: 

    Charles, you've been kind to me when I tried to start a channel a few years ago, I wish I could say something good but honest to you. Your vlogs are very good, I've actually enjoyed most of them from the beginning: your story is strong, you have a nice presence on camera. I think, you possess some excellent material for a documentary film - maybe you could find a filmmaker to work on it (unfortunately, though, it is hard to make money with documentaries, but if film is recognized by some festivals, you can be noticed by the right people in the industry). If you cannot make a film, right a script in your spare time. 

    Your drama channel has two flaws from my perspective: your provocative ideas are expressed in a too unpleasant way, and you do not research enough for a proper argument. I do believe you can find a good audience among people who approach veganism from various directions, but it is good to acknowledge that being fully vegan is still a personal accomplishment and a social position, and respect that as well. You had a good opportunity to bring people together with that idea, but the way you did it was counterproductive (if it was your intent, I doubt it though). Stay critical, but invest some time in improving your critical thinking. Good luck in LA.

I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.

Fructose, Glucose, Sucrose - Sugars in Plant Foods

  • Fructose and glucose are simple sugars, monosaccharides, with the general formula C6H12O6
    • Fructose, or fruit sugar, occurs naturally in fruits, some root vegetables, cane sugar and honey and is the sweetest of the sugars. 
    • Glucose, dextrose or grape sugar, occurs naturally in fruits and plant juices and is the primary product of photosynthesis. Most ingested carbohydrates are converted into glucose during digestion and it is the form of sugar that is transported around the bodies of animals in the bloodstream. 
  • Sucrose is a compound sugar, disaccharide, with the general formula C12H22O11
    Sucrose is found in the stems of sugarcane and roots of sugar beet. It also occurs naturally alongside fructose and glucose in other plants, in particular fruits and some roots (carrots). A molecule of sucrose is formed by the combination of a molecule of glucose with a molecule of fructose, and it is split into these parts during digestion.

The different proportions of sugars found in plant foods determines their sweetness
