I definately don't like their comments about adding salt to make things taste better.
We know meat eaters require more FAT and SALT to make things taste better. That's one main reason why meat eaters think our food might taste kind of bland.
Study has shown, after a while, when you eat more veggies, less meat, your taste bud will need less salt,, and more flavor will come out if you start eating more veggies.. (they said something like that)

This is what my friend wrote, she'll be at the event:
You can take #31 Balboa & get off in front of Lone Mountain to hike up those stairs. Once you reach the parking lot, enter building on right side.
I heard Raj speak at Stacey's last week & he's fantastic! Not only does he advocate a veg diet, he also advocates girls' education to deal with overpopulation problem.

Your Call 051508 The Emptying Oceans
Can you still eat seafood for dinner and sleep well at night? On the next Your Call we speak with Taras Grescoe, author of Bottomfeeder: How to Eat Ethically in a World of Vanishing Seafood. Grescoe, a travel writer, has sampled the best the world has to offer: bouillabaisse in Marseille, sushi in Tokyo. But he found that his was one mouth among way too many and his book is a wide-ranging survey of failing global fish stocks. Are calamari, oysters and swordfish off the menu forever? Can 6 billion people live well and healthy only at the expense of the seas? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
