Veg Out 487: Supplements, Antibiotics and Vaccines
With all the talk about developing a vaccine for COVID-19, have you ever wondered about the medications, supplements, and vaccines we take – and how to find out whether their production methods and ingredients are vegan? Sure, you can read the ingredient lists but it can be hard to decipher the medical terms and to know their origin. Special guest Ana De Castro shares some of her recent research on vaccines, including their ingredients, the medium on which they’re grown, and testing processes, and explains some of her frustrations about the lack of clear information. And: with the holiday season coming up, you may be wondering how to connect with your veg communities. Get a preview of the Veg Holiday Market (running December 12-20) so you can start planning your virtual celebrations!
