Here are the ten best reasons for barbecuing veggie burgers and veggie hot dogs at this year's Independence Day gatherings, rather than ground-up animal body parts:

• Focusing on traffic and fireworks safety, rather than food

safety.

• Giving your eyes a break from reading government food warning

labels.

• Not sweating cancer-causing compounds if barbecue temperature is

too high.

• Not sweating nasty E. coli and Salmonella bugs if temperature is

too low.

• Not wondering about the real contents of that burger or hot dog

you're chewing.

• Giving your body a holiday from saturated fat, cholesterol, and

hormones.

• Not sweating the animal cruelty and environmental devastation

guilt trips.

• Not having to explain to your kids why we cherish Fido but eat

Babe.

• Enjoying the exploration of veggie meal offerings in your

supermarket.

• Celebrating a day of independence from the meat industry.

Sincerely,
