Tick Bite of Doom Turns You Vegan
I’d say that this is one of the most terrifying things I’ve heard in a long time- a tickbite can cause you a lifelong allergy to meat. Oh Dear God, no.
From HotAir here:
There’s a new weapon in the war on meat: a tiny tick, whose bite might be spreading meat allergies up the East Coast.
A bite from the lone star tick, so-called for the white spot on its back, looks innocent enough. But University of Virginia researchers say saliva that sneaks into the tiny wound may trigger an allergic reaction to meat — agonizing enough to convert lifelong carnivores into wary vegetarians.
“People will eat beef and then anywhere from three to six hours later start having a reaction; anything from hives to full-blown anaphylactic shock,” said Dr. Scott Commins, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
Apparently John Grisham the author suffered from a tickbite that turned him vegan.

Bill Clinton announced that he is now a strict vegan, mostly not because it causes weight loss, but because his cholesterol is around 780, which would be great for a credit score, but not for a cholesterol level. So he went veg. So as a service to the newly veganized and girlishly slim former President,…
