A doctor, a vegan, a researcher and a farmer recently waded into a hot-button topic in the food world: Is it a bad idea to eat meat?
According to a 2009 poll, around 1% of American adults reported eating no animal products.

As political candidates go, the five Democrats on stage Tuesday night couldn't be more similar. They all rose through New York's Democratic ranks. Four served in the City Council; two have been comptrollers. But judging by the darts aimed squarely at each other, they couldn't have been less happy to find themselves in the same forum.
