Veganism in France?

An article on ideas on vegetarianism and veganism in other countries, other than the US. There is a story about parents losing faith in doctors and treating their daughter with home made medicines. The parents are vegan and the father runs a health food store in Amiens, France. Does the government play a role in what people decide to eat? Should the government decide on what should go on the dinner table? Some questions to think about.

What and how do you feel about it? Post your comments.

Happy Cooking!

Hold on...the government is US. People in a democracy ARE their government--"of the people, by the people, for the people," right?

Nobody, child or adult, likes being told what to do or what to eat, and I *like to think* that every consumer has a choice about how she spends her money and what she puts in her mouth.

However, government soy and corn subsidies certainly may influence what is being grown and what is less expensive to buy. (Why would so many companies switch to High Fructose Corn Syrup instead of sugar? Because it's cheap...and horrible for our health.)
