Just wait till I tell all the vegetarians I know that they've really been meat-eaters all this time without knowing it! :twisted:

Hmmm. One can argue that a virus is not meat.

It is clearly a flower.

Besides, Nyarl sez that the stupid burns, but I bet the stupid makes a tidy profit.

Two parts of this:

The basic claim is true. There are remnants of bacteria (and vira) in cleaned water. In the medical world 'bioburden' is a serious concern, because the "corpses" of micro-organisms are not harmless: They can trigger immune system reactions.

The secondary claim, that this should be a problem for a vegetarian is nonsense. Unless you decide not to breathe, you are constantly ingesting micro-organisms, live or dead.

Jains might want this sort of thing.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jainism

A scrupulous and thorough application of non-violence to everyday activities, and especially to food, is the most significant hallmark of Jain identity.[50] The Jain diet, observed by the followers of Jain culture and philosophy, is one of the most rigorous forms of spiritually motivated diet found either on the Indian subcontinent or elsewhere. It is completely vegetarian, excludes onions and garlic, and may additionally exclude potatoes and other root vegetables. The strictest forms of Jain diet are practised by the ascetics.[51] For Jains, lacto-vegetarianism represents the minimal obligation: food which contains even small particles of the bodies of dead animals or eggs is absolutely unacceptable. Jain scholars and activists support veganism, as the production of dairy products involves violence against cows. Strict Jains do not eat root vegetables, such as potatoes and onions, because tiny organisms are injured when the plant is pulled up, and also because a bulb or tuber's ability to sprout is seen as characteristic of a living being.[52]

Jains make considerable efforts in everyday life not to injure plants any more than necessary. Although they admit that plants must be destroyed for the sake of food, they accept such violence only inasmuch as it is indispensable for human survival, and there are special instructions for minimizing violence against plants. Jains also go out of their way not to hurt even small insects and other minuscule animals. They rarely go out at night, when it is more likely that they might trample insects. In their view, injury caused by carelessness is like injury caused by deliberate action.[53] Eating honey is strictly outlawed, as it would amount to violence against the bees. Jains avoid farming because it inevitably entails unintentional killing or injuring of small animals, such as worms and insects, but agriculture is not forbidden in general and Jain farmers exist.[54]

It often does. Too often in fact. But that doesn't make it one iota less stupid.

I just think it is important to differentiate between the seller and the buyer. Part of me wants to say, 'Please stop taking advantage of their wanton ignorance'. But another part of me thinks, 'If Coke don't do it, Pepsi will.' Everybody is happy. It's hard to hate that.

The buyer is stupid.

The seller is a con artist.

Different things, sure, but neither is exxactly a trait I would respect.

What is the definition of ''meat''? Protein? A substance which contains animal cells? Viruses are composed of RNA (sometimes DNA, depending on the particular virus) confined in a functional receptor-saturated protein coat. Bacteria are considered to be living as they thrive independent of a host organism but there exist bacteria in all corners of our world.

The fact that the article initiates with a question which reads like a statement makes me believe that it is an advertising gimmick, conjured up to prey on the gullible.
